    What got him banned last time was the specifc way he was tagging - inside an instance he dropped group tagged the mobs, then get reinvited. the group helps him kill the group but he got full exp. that specific method is what blizz called an exploit

    Gratz to Athene for world first, and to everyone that has already hit 85.

    It actually really isn't. The whole Athenelol is a fictional character created and played by Bachir Boumaâza. That guy is a genius in oh so many ways. Not to mention he is a weird but brilliant political activist. => wikipedia.org/wiki/MovieLOL

    kinda sad to see so many guilds 6+/12 in two days.

    thought cataclysm was supposed to be more difficult?

    Amazing, he killed some mobs which they have now been "fixed" by reducing the spawn rate and XP.

    Top 1% of guilds are downing raid bosses on normal difficulty.

    Nothing to see here. When they start doing heroics it'll be harder, but they'll still be ahead of the curve, because they're the top 1%.

    tl;dr Good guilds being good guilds isn't new.

    Many had players in beta/ptr so its not like they didn't have time to practice.

    Its only hard for those who aren't at the top of their game, which, news flash here, most of those here aren't.

    It doesn't affect me, but I'm kinda weirded out by those hardcore types that are already 85 and halfway through the first raid 2 days after Cata came out.

    Yeah, the leveling portion is fairly easy and those who were in beta know their way around, but that's still odd to me.

    Hmm,

    I kindoff got my doubts about the US first lvl85.

    The person that got the first Realm first achievement was not updated by wow progress in 1,5month or so.
    I just updated his profile and he now is registered as the first lvl85 on US servers.

    http://www.wowarmory.com/character-s...ower&gn=Fallen is his armory profile.

    If you want to check who realy got the first realm first achievement (besides Athene his fuckup with realmtransfer) you go check the http://eu.wowarmory.com/achievement-firsts.xml (you can select alternate zones from the drop down menu).

    No idea why people who have seen his videos and know the guy still doesn't get this. :|

    Didn't Blizz say that heirlooms wouldn't work 80-81?
    We must respect the other fellow's epeen, but only in the sense and to the extent that we respect his theory that his wife is beautiful and his children smart.

    TBH.. The leveling is really fast on the last levels anyway, I'm at 84 1/3, with grouping with a friend for quests and dungeons the whole time. I certainly have enjoyed the expansion this far, but I will for sure just rush an alt or two to 85 to get into endgame faster after this :P

    As someone said already earlier. US gets raid content generally earlier than EU, but EU still has most world firsts. So I really don't think it matters. You can also do a comparison of the total time spent from 80-85 from launch.

    Holy crap.

    You know what's almost as amazing as "Realm First! Level 85" in five hours? Two realm firsts on a single realm:

    http://eu.wowarmory.com/character-ac...eil&gn=Paragon

    Hop over to Feats of Strength. They both got it.

    I have to agree here. I mean, I know it's a very small group of people who are already raiding, and those that are rushed to 85, and those that did were probably in the Beta so they basically have had practice for at least 2 months already on this content. That all being said, I'm just... stunned at those numbers. I joked with my hubby we'd see all raid content done by somebody by next Tuesday. May be a possibility...
    Hey, it'll all still be new to me when I go in and enjoy it. I'm not complaining, I'm not whining, I'm just shocked that they're blasting through this so fast.
    Also, RIP Elementium farming in Deepholm. Didn't they do the exact same thing in Wrath when they claimed there were "too many saronite nodes" so they nerfed them?
