A story from Kotaku reveals that the hugely popular MMO game World of Warcraft has seen one player defy all objectives of the game in order to maintain a high level which competes with any other highly skilled player. The player ‘Everbloom’ has said he has been playing for five months and has reached level 85 without killing a single player.
He does this not by cheating or by exploiting a weakness in the game’s design, but instead through solid work at gaining XP through other means. Instead of charging into battle, Everbloom would turn away and instead pursue a long campaign in picking herbs, digging up bones and exploring the wilderness.
When asked about his accomplishment he proudly states that “each level was a major achievement!” and that “If you like to explore, and enjoy a challenge I really REALLY recommend this.” His story goes to show that with a lot of determination, patience and time on your hands, you too could progress through World of Warcraft by using his method.
So in conclusion, Everbloom has proven that there is now a new way to play the game. You can go about collecting XP the traditional, daring way or take a more laid-back approach… the choice is yours.
Will you try out what we are dubbing the “Everbloom approach”?
