    Leveling to 90 without dying.

    To help pass the time before WoD I've decided to level a character from 1-90 without dying. Also since thats not hard enough I plan to do it in all white and grey gear. Now I'm thinking warrior but would love to hear if you'd think another class with be harder and why.

    Wasn't this a thing already like back in Cataclysm?

    Also not sure as to the hardest class for that...maybe mage? I dunno that's the most squishiest class I leveled. Prot warrior with Victory Rush is just silly at low levels.
    My shaman I guess if you want to see it or something.
    My main at heart, my paladin

    I'm here to post and be witty, and I'm all out of wit.

    what you are talking about is called an iron man, the first one in the world were done by kripparrian as a hunter. it also includes not getting any help by anyone no matter what

    I'd imagine Rogue would be more difficult, provided you didn't use stealth, seeing how they lack any form of self healing until Recuperate or Leech Poison (Whichever comes first). That, and they'd have less armour.

    one could not level to 90 during cataclysm

    Solo leveling via quests, or LFD?

    don't do it on a pvp server, that's kind of impossible

    I meant the rest of it obviously :P It would be to 85 though.

    It's not particularly difficult as a Mage. I leveled from 85-86 on 5 classes with zero gear whatsoever, not even whites, and found melee by far the hardest. Sure, you don't do much damage, but the slows from a Frost Mage make it simple, just absurdly time-consuming.

    I plan to just quest. Also I plan to do it on a PvE server. PvP there is like a 99.9999% chance some bored level 90 will find me.

    This thing is the Ironman challenge, you also need to stay away from talent specialisations and glyphs. Here is a link to some website of it tracking people trying it: http://wowironman.com/rules

    I've often leveled from 1-90 on populated PvP servers without being ganked, or attacked, or selected, or anything. It certainly doesn't make it impossible, having zero gear.

    That is the iron man thing, try doing it without choosing a spec also.

    I found the same thing leveling before cross-realm zones. Now with that implementation, I find myself paired with some of the most popular Horde servers as Alliance and the most popular Alliance servers as Horde, sooooo

    Yeah it's been done a lot already.

    I remember a guy back in I think it was WOTLK who did it as a troll without even using weapons or quests IIRC
