Congratulations to Xayarwinna on becoming our 9th Dragonflight Iron Man Challenge Champion! Xaya’s Iron Man journey took 769 days, 0 hrs, 32 min, 47 sec, with leveling from 60 to70 taking about 24 hours.
Xayarwinna is not Xaya’s first max level challenge toon this expansion. He has 2 Iron Mans and 2 Pacifists already.
Why did you choose this challenge to play? Xaya says “I had an Iron Champion of every class in Shadowlands, I’m trying to do the same in Dragonflight. It was the next in line.”
What race/class/spec did you choose to go with, and were there any specific reasons for that choice? “I choose Prot on my Warrior, to get Ignore Pain. In DF it allowed me to kill normal mobs so a lot of quests were doable.”
What path did you take to level, and were there specific reasons for those choices? “I took a similar path to my other Iron Champions: World Quests, Paci-safe quests (see forums for a non exhaustive list), SL WQ that gave bonus xp, plus any quests that I could kill the mobs.”
Was there any close calls on Xayarwinna while leveling? “Once I had to log out while on a flight path. When I logged back in, I started falling and before I could reach the glider button I reach the ground and lost about 90% hp!”
Do you have any advice you would give to someone else thinking of trying out the Ironman Challenge? Xaya says, “For Dragonflight, take a non challenge toon and open just about any World Quest, Dragonracing (get all the glyphs), climbing, cataloguing, whatever. Those are account wide so you’ll be able to do them on irons.”
Are you working on any other challengers, or do you plan on taking a break for a while? “I still have to get a Working Man and a Greenman Champion, plus a lot of other classes to max level.”
Congratulations on Xayarwinna becoming our 9th Dragonflight Iron Man Champion, and best of luck Xaya with your other Challenger adventures!
