WOW Insider has an interview with Noor, a World of Warcraft player who is progressing through the game without resorting to killing. It can’t be much fun playing this way and his chances of reaching level 80 are slim but kudos for trying.
Back in November 2007, columnist John Himes took a look at a special breed of player who levels from 1 to 70 in a decidedly unconventional manner: hunters who only melee, a naked (well, except for his loincloth) warrior – and Noor the pacifist, who levels without intentionally killing anything. Now, this isn’t the first time we’ve heard of players who’ve given this idea a whirl, but Noor, a gnome rogue on Maiev, and his Horde counterpart, Reinisch the undead priest, seem to have the gumption and persistence to make it to the top of the XP tree.
