French gamer Surfeuze has already beat Guild Wars 2, the latest MMO to hit shelves this week, before the official launch has even begun. Surfeuze has mastered his way up to level 80 in 32 hours time. Early adopters or fans of the game who pre-purchased the game can start play on last Saturday and it would seem in little to no time, someone has already beaten the game. But how he got to that level is another story.
Apparently if your character is an Elementalist, you can reach the maximum level by crafting materials. Surfeuze says he reached the level by crafting materials using his guilds goods. But this “bug” won’t be around much longer, CEO Mike O’Brien over on reddit clarified that the bug is currently being fixed:
Level 80 is always something to celebrate, but be aware that this was not through normal leveling. A few users have made us aware of unusual ways to level very fast. We’re fixing these issues as I type.
