World of Warcraft streamer Rudeism has made a name for himself by completing games in the most unusual of ways, and has outdone himself by reaching level 100 in WoW using only a dancemat. The feat took 5 days, 11 hours, 48 minutes and 38 seconds, with the final seven hours available below:
Now known as the new phenomenon as Dancecraft, if you want to replicate the achievement then you don’t need to be a World of Warcraft streamer. Instead just follow the instructions below for which there are plenty of very strict rules!
- You can use one or two dance pads ONLY to play the game.
- Hands, keyboards and mice can be used for Alt-Tabbing, or logging in/out. Nothing else.
- If you can chat using the dance pads, it is allowed. Otherwise, no chatting via typing.
- Discord/Teamspeak/Twitch etc. are allowed for voice chat.
- Other players may make you bags, chat on your behalf and join you in dungeons or PvP, but cannot help in any other way.
- You may only run each dungeon ONCE. Dungeon boosting with 100s is not allowed.
- No heirlooms of any kind.
- No professions.
- PvP servers ONLY.
- If you play RPPvP, you must roll a troll monk. (Not really.)
- You are allowed only ONE macro, no more. That macro MUST be /dance.
- BONUS OPTIONAL RULE: No setting your Hearthstone at all.
Rudeism’s next challenge is playing Heroes of the Storm with a guitar controller followed by finishing Undertale again using a dancepad, which if you have played Toby Fox’s classic you will know must be very difficult considering the ‘bullet hell’ nature of the combat system.
