Congratulations to Lantanna on becoming our 17th Shadowlands Pacifist Challenge champion! Lantanna’s Pacifist journey took 477 days, 14 hours with a /played time of 3 days, 17 hours, and 24 minutes to complete.
This is Tiber’s 2nd Shadowlands Pacifist champion. His 1st max level challenger was Sappyboy.
Tiber chose to play the Pacifist Challenge because “…it is such a unique way to play WoW. Being unable to kill changes the game dramatically, and forces you to find new ways to level.”
Lantanna was created as a Tauren Druid. “…I had lost a Night Elf Rogue Pacifist prior to making her. After that loss, I wanted to change things up a bit. Play in some different zones, etc. Not to mention, Eversong Woods is a nice area to play, when you’re trying to level up to where you can get professions.”
Tiber used the following leveling strategy for this Pacifist: “Lantanna leveled almost completely through profession dailies, Darkmoon Faire, holiday events, and just a little herbalism. In fact, I was surprised to see I never learned archeology on this character. My primary reason for leveling this way was safety. Lantanna and Sappyboy follow a long list of failed challengers.”
Did Tiber have any close calls while leveling Lantanna? “No real close calls that can I remember, after getting the profession dailies.”
When we asked Tiber if he had any advice for others trying out the Pacifist Challenge, he had this to say “A few years ago, one of the OG challengers posted in podcast chat, that the way to succeed with Pacifist, is to never take any risks, and you’ll eventually get there. I really resisted that advice, and I sometimes still resist that advice, and I have a roster of fallen challengers to show for it, but it is true. Lantanna is only equipped with the two pieces of starter gear, that I didn’t need to sell for herbalism. So I guess my advice is, to be as patient, as you can be. But… you know, we’re here to have fun. Don’t lose that.”
What’s next for Tiber? Will he be taking a break or will he be working on another challenger? “I still have a couple more Pacifists that were in the pipeline, when Sappyboy made it to 60. I also have a level 57 Iron Man I have hopes for, and a new Iron Man I’ve started. And finally, I have a bunch of Tin Man and Green Man challengers that I’ve had parked that I need to sort out and figure out what to do with.”
We would like to wish you the best of luck with your other challengers Tiber and congratulations once again on Lantanna becoming our 17th Shadowlands Pacifist champion!
