Did this mage come closest to 'completing' Vanilla?

Ok, I know that WoW isn't really a game that you can ever truly complete.

That being said, this guy/girl came pretty damn close in my eyes.

For those wondering, this was Emilyspear on Sylvanas EU in the guild Method (the same Method that is still killing the world first race today).

I remember playing on Sylvanas at the time and I can't recall ever seeing this person offline, absolutely insane played time for Vanilla.

If I'm not mistaken this screenshot will have been taken around the TBC pre-patch.

Bonus screenshot of the bank!

Holy FUCK. Very cool screenshots.

That this guy cleared Naxx and got Atiesh with next to no keybinds really makes me wonder how long the raid content will last this time around. LoL

I always joked that I beat wow in actual vanilla. I had over 1 year of /played time on my warrior back then so more "insane played time" than Emily, but I'm definitely jealous of them finishing Naxx. I think finishing vanilla wow is being satisfied completely with your experience and by that standard I definitely completed it.

I had Thunderfury; I had pretty much every item I ever wanted in the game, and I led a guild that I loved logging into to play with each day.

I never got to clear Naxx, but pretty much no one on my server even stepped foot in there. That unfinished business is one of the fundamental reasons why I'm so passionate about classic, but beyond that I just truly love leading and building vanilla wow guilds.

I can't wait to do it all over again, but this time with benefit of the knowledge and wisdom gained from 15 years of IRL and in-game experience. Maybe this time I'll complete it after I gear out all my awesome guildies in naxx gear 😉

Awesome. This is such a great goal to set yourself having 'done' the rest of it already. You're well prepared this time too!

Wonder if they actually played without addons. If so, kudos for keeping it simple.

When you've got a lot of gold it's easy to snowball if you use it right.

I just wish there was a corresponding character screenshot with stats etc. Also, no Grind Marshal title...pfft. Not finished in my book rofl!

EDIT: couldn't help but notice it took him/her 14 days /played to hit 60

Can't see anything to indicate he completed the Scepter of the Shifting Sands quest line. Definitely unfinished.

I'm definitely seeing an Amulet of Shadow Shielding but no Darkwater Robes , Gnomish Turban of Psychic Might or Band of Icy Depths . He probably got the red shard and fumbled at the blue shard.

Holy shit that amount of time played. And Lne had over a year??? Hot damn!

But just taking this screenshot, I see an XP bar with XP corresponding to what it'd take to reach level 61, one would assume that TBC has emph{just} launched (unless you could see the bar after the prepatch!).

Either way, that's a max time that character can span. 11th of February 2005 to 17th of January 2007 is 705 days, TBC launch day not included, or 16920 hours. 305 days and 20 hours is 7430 hours. This means that every hour passed is 0.43 hours in game. Or in other words, this character has, on average, been played at least 10 hours and 25 minutes every single day for the entirety of vanilla! WHAT

Crazy right?

I don't remember him ever leaving Ironforge bank now that I think about it, no matter what time of day you'd log in Emilyspear would be in the same spot just advertising enchanting services in trade.

Sco, the GM of Method, talked briefly about him on his Twitch stream a while back (no idea how I would find this clip again) but he said the guy barely ever talked and they used to joke about him being some Chinese gold farmer or something.

It wouldn't be surprising if some account sharing was going on here.
