JokerdTV became the world’s first to reach level 60 in World of Warcraft Classic, reaching the mark on August 30, just four days after the official launch – and he immediately tried to start over but chat wouldn’t let him.

WoW Classic gave many players a chance to relive the game of their childhood as they experience the world of Azeroth all over again.

JokerdTV showed the long levelling process in Classic was no problem as he climbed from a fresh character all the way to level 60 in only four days.

The moment was captured on Twitch and the in-game chat went wild once he hit his final goal, with more than 300,000 viewers watching live.

This is no small feat and requires a huge time commitment, as we have streamers like Michael ‘shroud‘ Grzesiek who have put tons of hours into the game already but aren’t anywhere close to the level cap.

JokerdTV blew past the competition and it could be at least a day before anyone else joins him at the level 60 plateau, making this accomplishment even crazier.

Leading up to this impressive milestone he was playing “Live to Win” by Paul Stanley, which was popularized in the Season 10 episode of South Park “Make Love Not Warcraft” where the characters played World of Warcraft.

For those wondering what’s next for Jokerd, the answer is simple – he gets to play the game now. Or at least that’s what you’d think.

Blizzard EntertainmentThe first level 60 in WoW Classic has been revealed.

Immediately after reaching the mark, he tried to delete his character but was blocked by players since he was receiving too much mail.

He logged back in and checked the mailbox where he discovered there was a metric ton of mail waiting for him.

Reaching the level cap in an MMO is not the end of the journey, in fact, it’s just the beginning, and that’s not any different in WoW Classic.

The dreaded Molten Core raid awaits everyone who makes it to level 60 where there will be a lot of grinding to do, which Classic players are definitely looking forward to.

Congratulations to JokerdTV for his record, but now he’ll have to wait for others to catch before he can continue on with the true endgame content in WoW Classic.

You can tune into his journey live on Twitch right here. Jokerd managed to beat out Method, the esports and WoW guild that have been known for their world firsts in raiding, which was being produced on a high budget by WSOE.

WoW cosplayer’s impressive Sylvanas gets Blizzard’s seal of approval

One of the most iconic characters of the World of Warcraft franchise is Sylvanas Windrunner, the main antagonist of WoW Shadowlands. A cosplay by Cinderys injects some new life into the Banshee Queen.

World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has become the biggest event in this year’s Warcraft calendar. Breaking Blizzard’s pre-sale records for the franchise’s expansion packs, it’s safe to say that fans and onlookers alike are excited about this newest chapter in the Warcraft story.

The events of Shadowlands take place after the Battle for Azaroth, and see players travel deep into the Shadowlands to thwart their undead nemesis; fan-favorite archer turned Banshee Queen Sylvanas Windrunner. The Shadowlands themselves have come to represent the game’s equivalent of the afterlife, and while intriguing, are clearly home to a plethora of new, dangerous enemies.

However, Parisian cosplayer Cinderys (Sonia Grillet) has helped to blur the veil between the real world and the WoW universe by creating a stunning cosplay rendition of the Shadowlands antagonist.

Becoming the Banshee Queen

At first glance, Cinderys could easily be Sylvanas – or at least an illustration of her. Framed against the murky background of the Shadowlands, Cinderys is adorned in corrupted high eleven armor sporting Sylvanas’ masterfully crafted longbow. Ash blond hair cascades down her shoulders, providing some welcome respite to the dark, shadowy surroundings. However, getting to this point clearly wasn’t easy.

In a series of WIP photos, Cinderys shows the step by step process that led to the creation of the iconic Dark Lady, with one image showing the incomplete bust piece that lies at the center of Sylvanas’ armor.

A second photograph shows some of the behind the scenes work that went into the iconic longbow. With the finalized product sitting next to a blueprint of how to build it, it’s proof of just how much work has gone into the creation of the famous weapon.

With 3,000 likes on the image alone, Cinderys cosplay certainly attracted attention. The cosplay queen shared a post on Twitter showing the Blizzard liked the Tweet of Cinderys as Sylvanas. Cinderys’ excitement is infectious; seeing Blizzard respond to her cosplays caused a wave of appreciative fan comments and support.

Blizzard pick up Cinderys as their official WoW cosplayer

That’s not the only thing though. Upon Shadowlands’ release Blizzard allowed Cinderys to literally become the undead archer by making her the expansion’s official Sylvanas cosplayer. Featured alongside HartiganCosplay, Cinderys literally has become Sylvanas.

It’s amazing to see the transition that Cinderys has made in such a short space of time. From being an amazing instagram cosplayer to now being a part of Blizzard’s official marketing campaign for Shadowlands, she’s an inspiration to cosplayers everywhere. Push hard enough, and maybe one day you’ll also get to be a terrifying banshee too!
