An entire World of Warcraft Classic server has exploded in celebration after popular Twitch streamer Asmongold finally hit level 60 during his Sunday stream.

WoW Classic has exploded in the gaming world and on Twitch since its re-release two weeks ago, and perhaps none have enjoyed the return of Blizzard’s world-famous MMORPG as much as dedicated Azeroth hero Asmongold.

As Asmon and his group were descending into the Scholomance, the WoW personality realized he was just a kill or two away from the major milestone, and started to get excited.

 “Alright, this could be it right here, this could be it,” he said as they cleared neophytes and researchers. “After two weeks, every day playing over 12 hours a day, always being streamed online, this right here, this is it.”


Of course, Asmongold is a seasoned WoW player and knew how much experience he needed – the level dinged, he hit 60, and as his chat exploded he just sat back with a pleased smile on his face, raising a fist in celebration.

“The journey is at long last over,” said the newly max-cap player. “Guys listen up, whenever I originally started playing Classic I told myself I was going to go as hard as a motherfucker.

“Every day I’ve logged on and I’ve raided. I’ve farmed as hard as I could, and today that journey is over. Today we have reached level 60. Fuck yes dude, fuck yes dude.”

After that, it was time to party. Asmongold returned to Stormwind City, where players from all over his server had already arrived ready to party. The new level 60 put on Queen’s ‘We Are The Champions’ and walked through hundreds of celebrating server members.


Just as players did when the World’s First level 60 Jokerd first hit max-cap, many let off spells and fireworks to mark the momentous occasion, marching through the streets behind Asmongold as he just drank in the server-wide celebrations.

The WoW-centric streamer has had his fair share of highs and lows in the first fortnight of Classic, including watching someone else hit level 60 first and being targetted by fans who say he’s “failed” the game, but now it’s nothing but smiles for the veteran.

Now his loyal followers will be eager to see what he does next – he’s already organized a massive PvP event, and could even prepare for the end-game’s Molten Core raid.

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!
