Rolled back druid has World First level 90 reinstated

Rolled back druid has World First level 90 reinstated
WoW Insider readers who have been around for a few months may remember the strange story of a druid. On the same day as the expasion released, a druid by the name of Fs hit level 90. He was subsequently rolled back to level 87, as the linked article was updated to reflect, and many cried foul, asserting that he had cheated, that he had somehow made use of an exploit to get through the levels at such speed.

Athene sat down with some of the guys who had helped Fs to 90, and chatted with them about how they'd done it. They asserted that it was simply related to a buff that was put onto them by some mobs in Townlong Steppes, shamans to be specific, which they'd used to farm mobs for XP. They said they'd done nothing else, but the fact that Blizzard rolled Fs back didn't really support them.

The latest development in the story happened late last night, when Blizzard Community Vaneras posted the following:

After some lengthy deliberation on this topic and evaluation of all facts, we've decided to overturn our decision on this matter. We will be re-instating Fs's achievements. Our apologies to Fs for any frustration this has caused.

So it seems from this that, actually, the claims were true, there was no exploit, no cheating, and the achievement was legitimate. Fs's achievements have also been reinstated on the armory. Almost 7 months down the line, congratulations!

FS of Ravencrest-EU gets world first level 90? [UPDATE: Rolled back]

FS of RavencrestEU gets world first level 90
While we're not ready to declare it official, it appears the world's first level 90 has been achieved. FS of the Ravencrest-EU realm dinged just a short time ago, according to GuildOx.

It's important to take these early dings with a healthy dose of skepticism, as in the past they've been accompanied by swift action on Blizzard's part when the leveling method has been discovered to be exploitative. Some high-profile people in Cataclysm took park in an exploit, only to find themselves slapped with a level decrease back to 80.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more about this developing story, but if this is a legit power leveling, then it's been done extremely fast. Mists only released in the EU a little over four hours ago.

Updated 1:30 a.m. EDT 9/25/12:

Apparently he's been rolled back to 87, which follows what many in the forums are claiming (although there hasn't been any evidence until now).
