who plays the avatar
on the European server Archimonde, was the first player
worldwide to ding 70! Gawell the Mage hit 70 @ 4:04 am (CET)
on January 17 after a grueling grind in a 40-man power
leveling raid. Gullerbone was interviewed by
WorldOfRaids' administrator, Teza.
Here is the video:
[WoR]Teza: Can you introduce yourself quickly in a few
Gullerbone: I am french and 24 years old, a member of
Millenium (french guild) since 1-2 months and I was the one
playing the mage called Gawell for this exp rush, eventually I
will reroll shaman to complete my PvP arena team.
[WoR]Teza: Whats your played time from 60 to 70? Which
zone were you in when you reached lvl 70?
Gullerbone: It took me 28 hours to get from 60 to 70, and
dinged 70 at 4:04 am (CET) on Januar 17. I was in Netherstorm (subzone:
Mana forge) when i reached lvl 70.
[WoR]Teza: What was your preparation? How did you make it
in such a short time?
Gullerbone: Cau (the 1st european lvl 60) and I planned
the exp route step by steps, trying everything to make sure it
was the most approriate, the groups organization with the guild
Millenium and their members. Each member rotated using a
definite order to help me to grind on mobs, mostly with AE,
surrounded with several guildmates healers, tanks, pullers
[WoR]Teza: How many people were involved in your leveling
Gullerbone: All 40 members were involved; Milleniums
member were assigned to specific tasks and planning inorder to
keep me leveling and the maximum rate.
[WoR]Teza: Was it 10-20 or more people killing mobs after
you tagged them?
Gullerbone: Well at first we had be only 5 (during the
first 10 hours or so) so that 10 of the members could get lvl
62. then in the morning we were 15 inorder to kill the mobs at a
faster rate. Finally in the evening, everyone was involved and
we could gather a 35 man raid to help me in netherstorm with our
newly lvl 62 doing most of the job.
[WoR]Teza: Right, were you the only one playing Gawell
from 60 to 70 for the whole duration 28 hours?
Gullerbone: I sure did, I slept form 2 to 10pm on monday
(waked up 2 hours before TBC launch),so the physical preparation
was a part of the plan.
[WoR]Teza: Fine, any last words?
Gullerbone: It has been a pleasure to do this with
Millenium, I hope we come across other similar challenges in the
futur, I am very gratefull to every Millenium members.
