28 hours later, Warcraft gets its first Level 70

Well, that wasn't much of a race. After being on store shelves for little more than a day, World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade has gained its first level 70 in French player, Gullerbone.

Clocking in at 28 hours, Gullerbone's journey from the lowly plain of mortals known as level 60 to the god-esque status of 70 seems almost disappointing for a task estimated to take most players a few months at the very least. Somewhere, in the halls of Blizzard, someone has slapped their forehead.

For the curious, Gullerbone goes deeper into the method of his leveling madness in an interview with World of Raids. While his act of gaming fortitude is commendable, we're just glad that no babies died in the process this time.

Gullerbone can now look forward to sitting on his hands, waiting for the rest of the folks on his server to catch up so that he can actually do something worth his level. Congratulations!
