'I heard about the challenge 3 weeks ago, once it had already become a fairly well known movement. It was clearly created as a non-competitive activity, but the way I see it; if you have a ladder for something -- its competitive. As such, the challenge really appealed to my taste of activity within a game.'

    Kripp is truly an inspiration to all hunters everywhere.


  3. Lilistrae

    hahahaah love it! “what do we say to the god of death? %^&* you… 😀

  4. Chira

    Well done!

  5. Fid

    Was expecting “Not today.”

    What a twist!

    That was fast, though. I was expecting the ironman challenge to take longer. I want to try it when I get back.

  6. Lorn

    Now do it as a Priest.

  7. Eazy

    The God of Death is Yogg-Saron.

    Truly a worthy monument to dedication.

    nerf Hunters!

    >Now do it as a Priest.

    Ooo, priest!
    Thats a fun challenge, might have to take up the cup myself.

  12. Vitorog

    Good Show!

  13. RAZIM

    An ironman challenge for each class would be great as something for next year. That way there is no one class is stacked by players to win. Everyone can build a unique gameplan. The first one to finish would have high praise of course.

    Grats to Kripp.

  14. Kaima

    Awesome!!! 😀

  15. zimnic

    Congratulations! Now to start raiding in White/Grey gear xD

  16. JesRaven

    I want to see a mage do it. That way Chris’s campaign to have them buffed will be destroyed forever!

  17. Elderin

    No offense, but I’d rather have my eyes gouged out than do the Iron Man challenge.

    I’ve already leveled 5 toons to 85. Why would I want to level another in a fashion that is as hard as possible?

  18. Unfy

    Thats why it is called a challenge

  19. Elderin


    So is driving from Atlanta to Savannah down I-75 in a lawnmower in reverse.

    That doesn’t mean I want to do it.

    “So is driving from Atlanta to Savannah down I-75 in a lawnmower in reverse.”
    And why on earth would you not want to do that?

  21. Falos

    brb, buying a lot of snacks and a lawnmower in Atlanta

    Lol @Falos!

    Oh, and as for Hunter being the best class for the Ironman Challenge: Feign Death ftw!

  24. Imnick

    Easy answer there then Elderin, don’t do the Iron man challenge
    And leave the people who DO want to do it to their fun

  25. Bracket

    “Well, I never!”

    Kripparrian: Me neither! BWAHAHA!

  26. Valenhil

    Needs more Ice and Fire.

    @Elderin: Y’know, paint up the lawnmower like something out of Mario Kart and gimmie a load of bananas to throw at people and you’ve got my attention! 😀

  28. Larkspur

    Yes, Elderin, we got that the first time you complained about how the Iron Man challenge couldn’t possibly be any fun for anyone involved because you wouldn’t have fun doing it. Clearly they should call the whole thing off because they’re deluding themselves into enjoying something artificially difficult.

    But then, people play games in the first place to be challenged, so…

    On a less sarcastic note, hooray for Kripparrian!

  29. Elderin

    To everyone.

    Yes, I’m a stick-in-the mud. Perhaps it’s just me, but I look at the final results of a “challenge” and the point of the overall game.

    If someone accomplishes the Iron Man challenge, what do they get? Another level 85 character. In fact, they get another level 85 character that is extremely under-equipped. And, they accomplish this feat by the hardest method possible. (And, yes, I don’t understand most achievements either).

    Like I indicated earlier, driving backwards in a lawnmower down I-75 from Atlanta to Savannah is also a challenge. But at the end, you still just drove form Atlanta to Savannah.

    At the end of the “Iron Man” challenge, you still just have another level 85 toon. GRATS!

    @Elderin: Then don’t do it. How hard is that?

    It’s a challenge, not a requirement. Some people like to do it, others don’t.

    There are thousands of different “challenges” held around the world and most of them, if not all, are virtually “pointless”. Don’t like that? Then ignore them. It’s not hard.

  31. Pinnelipe

    Sometimes, I like to pick stuff up with my toes. It would be easier to use my hands, but it’s just fun knowing I can do it. This is how I view the Iron Man Challenge. The same concept is used in various traditional games every day. Why go to first, second, and third base when you’re just trying to get to where you are anyhow? Why have the floor be lava when you could stroll your way to the kitchen instead of climb it? Why climb a wall when you’re just going to have to go back down it?

    In the end, the point isn’t the end goal, but to look back on what you did and say “Hey, I can do that.” Otherwise, Life is only that you are born and then you die. It’s the journey, not the destination.

    Congrats, Kripp, on making the journey interesting!
