    Yes if every other player only plays 7:50 every day.

    Sadly there is always a bigger fish and some of them are even sharing accounts.

    If you want to get to rank 14 then stop everything in your life for 3 months because that is what is required.

    Again, I did the grind. I was rank 14 in vanilla and NOBODY I knew that did the grind died either. I was looking for a link to a story (mostly to satisfy my curiosity), but so far all you have done is come up with conjecture. You haven't provided any solid proof.

    me and my mate got grand marshal and never even give any thought to anything like that tbh,i played about 12/14 hours a day with breaks ofc.i was 35 at the time and just got out of hospital after having a serious back op,so it cant have been that grueling tbh.

    Yeah, if anybody was going to die from the r14 grind, they would have likely already started the grind not being in perfect health. 16h per day, as bad as it sounds, isn't going to kill a human being that still eats and gets his/her 8 hour sleep.

    I dont personaly know people that comited suicide,therefore suicide doesnt exist,flawless logic,and a quick google search pops up plenty of wow related deaths,and no other activity in wow forces you to play every day all day for months in order to obtain said thing 1+1 is hard math

    So by your logic driving a car is bad too, because people die in car accidents? Of course there are people who are taking things way too far and killing theirselfs or (in some recorded stories) even others because of video games. But concluding that grinding to rank14 does kill people is a bit exaggerated.

    I think most people who got rank 14 back in the day had to utilise account sharing simply because it was impossible to actually play the amount of hours needed in a day to reach it without forgoing sleep which, of course, you can't do for very long.

    If you're on a dead server, you might be able to get 10-11, but I would be surprised if there was any server where 14 was possible in that amount of time.

    Managed Rank 14 playing 16h a day, no account sharing.

    Honestly I wouldn't stress about it too much, bgs have just come out and people are hard farming, once they see how hard it is to rank a lot of people will drop off and you will be able to rank up to 9/10 fairly easily, also a lot of PVE players are hard farming AV and WSG for the Rep rewards as well so hopefully that should drop off in the next couple of weeks as well.

    Be patient my sons.

    OP - No unfortunately not, I would say you would need to farm about 20 hours a day to stand a chance and even then you might struggle for 14

    Not anytime soon. Bots and account share is pretty out of control right now. Our top 22 players last week apparently didn't sleep, eat, or shit last week on our realm. Seriously at least 2 of them have hard evidence of not 1 second offline in a week. Very human behavior.

    It's weird people are committing so much to such an old game. I can understand doing this grind back in vanilla, cause playing this game was like being a kid on a Christmas morning, but now? Jeeze. This is a really old game. Its sheen wore off a long time ago.

    I mean.. if they are.. maybe the sheen is there but it's just not for you.
