In a post on Twitter, Blizzard has revealed some statistics regarding the World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore. The Hardcore servers released 30 days ago, and so far almost 2 million character deaths have occurred over this timeframe. Under the server rules of these new realms, a single death results at the end of that character no matter your level. Whether your character meets its end at Level 1 or Level 60, the character is lost upon death, and players must start all over.
One simple change has energized World of Warcraft Classic
Interestingly, Hunters have met their untimely end the most by far. Over 400,000 Hunter characters have perished, which probably has more to do with it being the most popular class for Hardcore. As we mentioned in our World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore leveling tier list, Hunters are the best class. They have the ability to do insane burst damage, and an arsenal of pets to help draw aggro. This can easily save your life if you find yourself surrounded by unexpected respawns, or accidentally pull too much. Even still, if you figure it’s the most played class, that can also equate to the most deaths.
On the other end, Shamans have the least deaths by far, with just over 75,000 in total. Unfortunately, Shamans aren’t exactly the best option for WoW Classic Hardcore. They are extremely gear-dependent to deal much damage, and there are just tankier and more efficient options when it comes to their utility. It’s not to say that Shaman is bad in any way, there are just better options when trying to reach max level before dying a single time.
I jumped into WoW Classic Hardcore back when the servers dropped, and found the added element to be pretty fun. However, after being extremely safe for hours—I was level 19, in fact—I suffered a disconnect and when I logged back in I was dead. Not exactly the most fun way to lose hours of progress. Even though I enjoyed the ride, that was about it for me. Unfortunately, I’m way too busy to risk losing hours of progress due to a disconnect out of my control.
One thing that World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore has shown me though, is that I really want World of Warcraft Classic + to be a real thing. Let’s see it Metzen!
