After hitting the milestone on August 30, the first level 60 player in WoW Classic ‘JokerdTV’ led a massive parade of players through Azeroth, as many gathered around him to celebrate his achievement.

WoW Classic has taken over Twitch, as the OG version of World of Warcraft has brought players back for nostalgia, while for others it’s their first chance to try a game that has long been legendary.

A streamer by the name of JokerdTV reached the cap on August 30, making him the first player to do so, and he celebrated his achievement with a parade.

An epic celebration

Soon after Jokerd hit level 60 with his gnome mage character, he hopped on his mount, played Kool & the Gang’s song ‘Celebration’ on YouTube, and began his march through Azeroth to bask in his glory.

In what seemed like a flurry, a flood of players from the server quickly surrounded him as he walked, jumping up and down in excitement, and spamming spells and congratulations in the chat.

It became so overwhelming that the level 60 player decided to go on foot and run instead. “Just run, run together,” he told the crowd.

As the celebration made its way past the bridge, it soon turned into a full on parade as players began to line up on each side of the path for the player, showing respect for him becoming the first player to hit the level cap.

“What the f**k!?” the Twitch streamer yelled, in shock at how players were forming a parade for him to walk down. As he continued to walk down the road, Jokerd panned his camera around to see the massive amount of people that came out to cheer him on.

The first to reach level 60

JokerdTV hit level 60 on August 30, making him the first WoW Classic player to reach the highest level in the game, just three days after it the game went live on August 27.

The Twitch streamer went to delete the character afterwards, however, players prevented him from doing so by spamming his inbox with a flood of messages, as the game doesn’t let you delete your character if you haven’t cleared your mail.

Jokerd was the first WoW Classic player to reach level cap.

As of the time of writing, WoW Classic is the second most streamed category on Twitch with 333k people watching – over 100k more than Fortnite.

It seems as though the OG game’s resurgence has been a hit with both nostalgic players and people who just want to see what all the fuss is about.

The World of Warcraft 22 October Hotfixes sees some major changes to some of the game’s most popular classes alongside a host of other changes.

In the run-up to the highly anticipated release of the Shadowlands expansion, Blizzard have made several key updates to WoW Classic, as well as the Battle for Azaroth.

Between 14-22 October, there has been a range of different updates to the game, but some of the most important have been rolled out after 19 October. These changes include a whole host of alterations to some of the game’s most popular classes, items, quests, and bug fixes.

Blizzard EntertainmentNew adjustments have been made to several of the game’s most dominant classes.

Class Changes

Some of the main changes these Hotfixes will implement apply to the games major classes.

The healing classes of the the game have been given significant buffs, specifically the changes made to the Priest’s ‘Atonement’ to increase the healing lower level characters receive from the spell.Also, taking the Priest with you on “Blade of Twilight” lets the player return to Whispering Woods using the Tirisfal Camp Scroll.

Healers aren’t the only ones who have seen some positive changes. The Demon Hunter has also seen a revision of a bug which decreased armor when using Demon Spikes while buffed.

On the opposite end of the spectrum, the Mage class has seen significant nerfs, with “Arcane Pummelling” losing 40% of its damage per wave and Vision of Perfection no longer proccing Rune of Power.

Headgun Changes

Another significant change in this hotfix appears on the Tactical and Blink-Trigger Headguns, whose cooldown on-use effects have been increased significantly from 30 seconds to 5 minutes. This makes firing those bullets a lot harder, and you’ll have to use them much more sparingly.

Trick or Treat?

As Hallow’s End dominates the game, players will be pleased to hear that the Hallow’s End Candy Bucket in The Veiled Stair now appears in all phases, offering treats to any passers by whenever they need them!
