World of Warcraft player hits 85 on his "neutral" Pandaren; aims for 90

World of Warcraft Neutral Pandaren

Somewhere in the world of Azeroth is a lone warrior with no allegiance. Doubleagent, a Pandaren Shaman, is on his own quest to reach the games max level without allying with either the Horde or the Alliance. This introduces some pretty harsh limitations to his leveling ability, as he’s never allowed to leave the starting zone. His only way of gaining the gargantuan amounts of experience he now needs to level up is solely by gathering.

Here’s the moment he dinged to level 85:

His only way of gaining experience is from gathering professions: namely mining and herbalism. He’s ran out of quests to do on the starter island - named the Wandering Isle - and is also locked out of the dungeon finder. It’s impressive without a doubt, but why would someone be dedicated to such a tedious achievement?

“Mostly to prove a point, that you can do anything if you are set out to do it” said NeutralAgent. “One of my friends told me I couldn't go to level cap as a neutral, and because of that mostly... I'm still at it. I do have a job, work 5 or 6 days a week for 8 hour shifts, I live within a minute walking distance from my place of work, which makes transit to and from work pretty much non-existent.”

He plans to reach the current end-game level cap, but that it would roughly take him “4 months to 90”. If that’s not enough, the new expansion, Warlords of Draenor, will set that goal to level 100. NeturalAgent keeps a video log of all his leveling events over on his Youtube channel, and you can check out his last AmA here.

I'm absolutely not judging anyone, but if he spent one of those hours every day playing the guitar or something he'd have something that stuck around after the WoW servers shut down.

How many people already play the guitar? Given the number of shirtless fellows strumming away ceaselessly on their acoustic guitars in my local park every summer, I would suggest it's too many. I'd much rather they stayed inside and leveled a Pandaran to 85 in the starting zone.

You could say that about any hobby but it doesn't make one any more valid than another. Each to their own.

but can't the same be said of doing anything in a game?

I spent a lot of time in Star Wars Galaxies making a massive city and collecting every rare and no longer obtainable item in the game, it all died with the servers, but the fact remains while I was doing it I had fun.

if someone wants to do something they find let them get on with it, but still if you think this is bad look at the person who has spent the last 7 years getting over 1 million game score on Xbox live just for bragging rights, when in reality there isn't enough "good" games to come anywhere close to a million so he had to buy and play some of the worst games going just to manage it.

Ahh SWG. Even now I'm still bitter about NGE update.

me too, I just hope SOE pull off what they claim and have their unannounced MMO target the old school SWG fans for gameplay style.

Reminds me of the people that got to level 20 in GW1 "Pre-Sundering" or whatever. I didn't play it long, but my friends that did explained it to me and it was so incredibly taxing that it always amazed me that there was a whole community of people that played the game that way.

I say more power to them. Have fun however you want! :)

Rangers had it easier as you could sacrifice your pets over and over and over to level up the enemy enough to get xp from it.

Was still hellish though lol. I'm a content consumer, can't stand grinds like that at all.
