Shroud managed to grind his Shaman from level one to level 25 on WoW Classic’s opening day, and has now considered himself completely invested into the game until he hits his goal of level 60.

“God this is such a grind, I can’t believe I’m committing this much into WoW. What the f*** is wrong with me. F***.

Shroud is no stranger to long streams and blue screens. In February 2018, his PC crashed while playing a game of PUBG, while he has been holding marathon streams since his first 40 hour marathon in 2014.
