Congratulations to Eexegigacute on becoming our first Iron Champion created during Battle for Azeroth to level from 1 to 120! This makes them our 7th Iron Champion, which took him 26 days or a /played time of just under 8 days to accomplish. Eexecute was also the first Allied Race to become an Iron champion this expansion with his Dark Iron Dwarf Krahkknahr. 

After hitting the Iron Champion podium with Krahkknahr recently, we asked Eexecute why he jumped back in so quickly with another Iron. “Leeta and Stone said they wanted to see a 1-120 iron… and I heard them. Having already succeeded on a Dark Iron Dwarf (Krahkknahr, great racials), I rolled this toon because I wanted to see if I could make it to cap with effectively useless racials. It took a few tries thanks to my ISP acting up and forcing me to start over, but it’s done now.”

When asked if there were any challenging moments or close calls this time, Eexecute had this to say, “Having optimized my route, none of the challenge proved extremely difficult… almost as though Krahkknahr was a glorified scout. I stuck to the zones that I knew worked and avoided the ones that didn’t. I didn’t have a single near-death experience on this toon.”

Eexecute’s advice for anyone wanting to try out the Iron Man Challenge was this: “I can only echo what I said on the last podcast and what has been said by those who came before me – do your homework (scout), read the FAQ, always have an escape, read the FAQ, seek advice when unsure, read the FAQ, don’t play if you’re lagging or tired, and read the FAQ. Also, it might be a good idea to armory Eexegigacute and look at the pet names.”

With two Iron Champions under his belt for this expansion, we asked Eexecute what his next project would be. “I’ve been sort of conscripted into taking all of my notes/knowledge and compiling them into a ‘guide’ of sorts (thanks, Leeta and KhrysW). As such, I’ll level a tin hunter (Gnome of course!) on WRA and use it to organize everything. Given that I’m in the middle of an academic trimester at UNSW, it won’t be a particularly fast process, but I’m happy to assist the community.”

Congratulation once again on successfully reaching max level with Eexegigacute! We look forward to seeing the leveling guide you’ve come up with once it’s finished.

We’re joined by Eexecute this week. He tells us all about leveling Krahkknahr, how his current Iron Eexegigacute is doing and shares some excellent tips and tricks.

Congratulations to Krahkknahr, our first Iron Champion created during Battle for Azeroth! Krahkknahr is also our first Iron Allied Race to reach max level and our 5th Iron Champion overall during this expansion, taking just under 42 days to do so.

Being fairly new to the challenge scene, we asked Eexecute, Krahkknahr’s pilot, what drew him into trying out the challenge. He said, “I’d heard about the ironman challenge a while ago, but completely forgot all about it until I saw people on Reddit posting about it. I checked out the WoW Challenges site, saw that some people had succeeded, and decided I’d give it a go.”

For him, the easiest part of the challenge was leveling from 98 to 111 saying, “having the Draenor/Legion pathfinder achievements really trivializes those levels. You can literally loot your way through half of it in Tanaan Jungle, and many of the Legion bonus objectives were not designed with flying in mind.”

Eexecute found the hardest part was leveling from 111 to 120. “The combat quests in BFA are tuned for people in greens with the Heart of Azeroth. Given the experience dropoff of prior content at level 111, I was forced to grind mobs to get most of the experience. The combat quests are just too hard, and you can’t benefit from (or even see) incursion objectives.”

Krahkknahr’s run almost came to an end in Tol Barad. Eexecute learned the hard way that when a mob has a massive damage ability like Keep Lord Farson’s Stormstrike, it can be panic-inducing, especially when the ability was not listed on WoWHead.

When we asked Eexecute if he had any advice for other challengers he said, “The best advice I can give is to do your homework. Always try something on a scout first if unsure. Also, take note of mob patrol routes and spawn locations in dangerous areas. It’s always better to spend the time safely gathering information than to find it out the hard way. Also, get involved with the community. They’re great people, with a wealth of helpful information.”

Eexecute’s current projects include an Iron Paladin, a Green Paladin, and a Green Team with a friend that he’s having a ton of fun with.

Once again, congratulation to Eececute’s Krahkknahr on becoming our 1st Iron Champion created during Battle for Azeroth!
