21 Days, 15 Hours, 26 Minutes and 2 Seconds

Okefarflng @ 21 Days, 15 Hours, 26 Minutes and 2 Seconds

In the grand tradition of old-time MMORPG designers announcing their competence:

Meet the Beastmaster Okefarflung of Argent Dawn.

Accomplished this before my son, for once. Now I’m twinking him! :-)

I guess it is possible for a casual player to hit the World of Warcraft level cap, eventually.

This was only possible with the support of my guild-mates in Force Recon, who tell me that this is a more than respectable showing in terms of a short amount of game-time to reach this level, especially the first time.

That double-XP bonus for us casual gamers really works. I can tell you for sure that I would have quit long ago if it weren’t there.

I am amazed how quickly I’ve come to miss the XP bar. Skinner boxes, indeed.
