When the World of Warcraft expansion Wrath of the Lich King was released this week, MMOers across the world were overjoyed to know they could now push their avatars even further with the new raised level cap. With the ability to reach level 80, gamers could work towards gaining access to sweeter gear, stronger abilities, and collecting more bragging rights. As to be expected, once the expansion hit the streets, people were power-leveling day and night to be the first person to reach the new max level, and French shut-in Nymh hit the finish line in just 27 hours.
By practicing on the beta server, Nymh figured out about how long it would take him to power-level through the new top tiers, but it ended up taking him longer than he thought. By adjusting his method he was able to reach level 80 before everyone else, but only because the YouTube sensation Athene had his account frozen for unknown reasons when he reached level 79 in 13 hours. For more details about just how Nymh did it, check out his interview with MMO-Champion.com by clicking the source link.
