Level 85 with 0 kills and 0 quest XP

85 Night Elf Druid
Well I did it lol, it was certainly a different way of levelling, requires lots of patience, but I did get to see the whole game in a new light.
Being on the ground and sneaking around mining and herbing and eventually archaeology, going everywhere to get every single point of discovery xp that you can, really gives you a chance to see an amazing world up close and personal. I spent hours swimming around reefs and flying to the farthest reaches of the maps.
If you like to explore, and enjoy a challenge I really REALLY recommend this, I have been playing since day 1 on other characters and I even have an original Loremaster (you know, back when it was hard) and I saw so MANY new things with Everbloom that it really made it worthwhile for me to continue on with this character, and each level was a major achievement!

I would like to ask Blizzard to possibly look into changing the "Invitation to the Argent Tournament" scripted event so that it doesn't flag you as having completed a quest when you haven't actually completed a quest, that almost broke my heart when I logged in and checked my stats page to find my 0 kills 0 quest stats had gone to 0 kills 1 quests completed when all I did was open a letter.
I opened a ticket and requested the quest be removed but was told it is not possible and that I should mention it on the forums in the hope that Blizzard changes it.

SO now I am server transferring this one to Antonidas to join the guild <Peace Corps> which is a 0 kills guild that was started there for us alternate advancement people! I think most of the guild is searching out quests that require no killing, but I shall stick to my 0 kills 0 quests attempt yet again!
Come join the ... fun? ;)

Blizzard needs to send you $2,000 just for doing this.
90 Night Elf Warrior
Very impressive.

I congratulate you both on completing your goal and for looking for fun in the game that isn't spoon fed to you.

How did you do this exactly? You got to 85 solely by exploring, herbing, mining, and archeology? How did you deal with mobs that agro'd you?

edit: Did you die a lot?

A lot of corpse running and running in general I imagine. Although she is a druid, so she has flight form and prowl + shadowmeld.

Wow! You must be a very patient person to actually accomplish that! o.O

Congratulations :)

It's called the "Root n Run". Entangling Roots, Travel Form, Flee. That simple. I do it on my druid when leveling herbalism. Entangling Roots doesn't kill (at least anything that would aggro you in a sensible distance).

Blizz should put your toon somewhere ingame for doing this. That's amazing
