World of Warcraft's New Level Cap Hit in Less Than 6 Hours

World of Warcraft: Legion's level cap was reached by someone playing the new demon hunter class.

16 Comments

World of Warcraft: Legion is out, and one player has already hit the new level cap. It took Twitch user Fragnance five hours and 28 minutes to reach level 110 with his demon hunter, the latest class to be added to the MMO (via Eurogamer).

Fragnance didn't make it from level 1 to 110, though. Players could create a demon hunter a week ago, and the new class starts at level 98. The previous level cap was 100, so Fragnance had plenty of time to get his demon hunter there before Legion launched last night. Despite this, reaching level 110 in less than six hours is quite the feat, one which he accomplished with the help of another player.

The tenacious World of Warcraft streamer spent a lot of time preparing for Legion, and you can watch it on his Twitch profile. As of publishing time, he's still streaming, accompanied by music from bands like Linkin Park as he works on getting his shadow priest to the level cap.

World of Warcraft: Legion is now available for $50. You can watch us unbox the $120 Collector's edition here.

Legion adds a bunch of new zones, dungeons, bosses, and features to World of Warcraft. There's also a content patch in the works called Return to Karazhan that introduces a small raid amidst The Emerald Nightmare and The Nighthold, among other things.

Will we be getting a review from someone who has actually taken their time to enjoy and see the content or will it be someone who has blitzed through it and essentially played a game with a stripped experience?

Should enjoy the content you pay for instead of skipping and blitzing through it.
No doubt then complaints will come in 'oh there is nothing to do in this xpac, so boring' 'too long for new patches' etc.

@BLiTZ_156: the player probably experienced almost all of it in the beta. even if not we shouldn't assume they won't go back and do it, being first to max was just their first goal.

@BLiTZ_156: loads of people do this every expansion but it doesn't mean they do it on every class

@Jacanuk: Usually raising your level at such a high level takes a long time. I know players who play tons and they couldn't reach from level 100 to level 110 in 6 hours. It take them maybe half a day. In fact there is no one on our realm who has hit the cap yet and we have one of the crowded realms (that being said Dalaran is laggy like it was in Wrath due to having both factions there once more).

@DarkCaptain3: Maybe those people actually play the game and experience the new content.

But it´s different on all realms, some has 110 because people speed run to it, and others are smart enough to enjoy the new content, since there won't be anything for a long time.

@Jacanuk: Also you do know there is a achievement for being "Realm First" right. Like there is an achievement for being the realms first player to hit a level cap. Their a Feat of Strength and have existed since Wrath.

Also they stated that this time around they will be giving us new content through patches like they used to do in the older days. With the first new stuff coming out in September.

Not surprised. Reaching the level cap hasn't been very difficult for a while now. I managed to reach it in two days in the previous few expansions playing in more reasonable sessions.
