Twitch streamer Chance World of Warcraft Classic with a massive LAN setup to for marathon play through.

Blizzard has given its long time fans an incredible throwback to the MMO that inspired their gaming tendencies over 10 years ago by releasing the purest form of classic World of Warcraft to hit the modern market.

Players like Soda and crew weren’t about to let the occasion go without proper due diligence as if it were just another game release, resulting in an epic streaming/WoW setup so that everyone in the party could grind for hours at the optimal level.

Sodapoppin TwitchThe set up took a day and a half to make to prepare for WoW Classic.

Before their 20+ hour foray into the world of Azeroth, Soda gave a peak into setup that he and his friends were going to rely on to capture all the action.

As Sodapoppin changed his stream’s scene, he revealed a room with no less than 12 monitors that would be used for the deep dungeon dives to facilitate the ludicrous leveling layouts they had planned beforehand.

“One hour until servers go up, all of us are prepared to be fully autistic and grind for hours on end,” Sodapoppin said before noting he had carefully curated his wardrobe too since he was going to get “sweat and get real disgusting.”

The whole WoW setup took his friends a “day and a half” to complete, and it looks like Soda’s Twitch Chat agreed that the toils and labor fully paid off.

The release of WoW Classic has been largely fueled by a nostalgic hype that a lot of newer players might not be able to readily understand.

As a large streamer with different kinds of viewers, Soda made sure to cover his bases well in advance to the big launch.

He previously warned his stream how “boring” WoW Classic would be to both play and watch, but he was full-speed ahead on the hype train: “I told you guys this is a big deal for me, so when it comes to paying attention to the stream it’s at a minimum.”

The massive WoW Classic setup is a testament to old-school gaming sessions that Sodapoppin and co. were excited to finally get back to.

World of Warcraft has inspired a whole collection of amazing cosplays, but one cosplayer truly brings WoW into reality with her amazing Kyrestia cosplay. 

When it comes to Blizzard’s World of Warcraft universe, there are limitless possibilities to create amazing cosplays. The huge array of iconic characters, coupled with the impressive customization for your own hero or villain, makes the title perfect for passionate fans.

We recently saw cosplayer Cinderys create an amazing Sylvanas cosplay just in time for the release of Shadowlands, which in turn managed to score her Blizzard’s seal of approval.

This time around the subject of this amazing cosplay is Sylvanas’ polar opposite, Kyrestia the Firstborne, the ruler of Bastion.

Kyrestia has become one of The Ascended’s most iconic faces.

Cosplayer ascends as Kyrestia

2021 has brought with it a lot of insane cosplays, but this one is certainly one of the most memorable so far.

Artist PlexiCosplay (Plexi) has outdone herself with this beautiful transformation. Having painted herself aqua from head to toe, she can be seen adorned in Kyrestia’s iconic white and gold outfit whilst channeling the Ascended queen’s angelic nature.

What your eyes are immediately drawn to are the wings though. Mirroring the sky blue of her skin, their construction is perfect. Tipped with gold trims that tie in with her vestments and stunning recreation of the warrior’s crown, Plexi literally is Kyrestia.

WoW fans are stunned

Considering the wings are, according the Plexi, “15 feet long,” it’s safe to say that fans can’t miss this cosplay.

It’s the wings that have really gotten attention. One fan’s hilarious comment simply wrote: “the wind: I’m about to end this woman’s whole career,” to which Plexi responded “YOU NAILED IT.”

Another respondent was equally as humorous, writing “Kyrestia flight 77 you are cleared for takeoff, proceed to runway 4.”

All of these comments though praised this amazing cosplay, with one comment summing it up: “This blew my mind!!! I thought someone cropped the Archon out and pasted her onto some road!”

It’s safe to say that Plexi has truly embodied the fan favorite Ascended. She’s not only radiant, but emits a ‘don’t mess with me’ aura. We can’t wait to see her next WoW cosplay, as if she keeps going like she’ll be the queen of not just Bastion, but the WoW cosplay scene in no time!
