That’s a lot of deaths (and hours wasted).
In World of Warcraft Classic Hardcore’s first week, nearly 100,000 characters met their demise within the initial 24 hours of the MMORPG's special server launch. The top culprits behind these passings include Kobold Miners, Wendigos, falling damage, PvP encounters, and Voidwalker Minions. In case you weren’t aware, dying in WoW Classic Hardcore means the end of your character and having to start all over again.
Over the week, the death toll has risen significantly, with the average character perishing at Level 10. Human characters emerged as the most favored race, followed by Night Elves and Undead. Among classes, Warriors, Hunters, Rogues, and Mages proved the most popular, while Shamans, Paladins, and Druids were the least chosen.
One standout feature in the Hardcore Classic experience has been the Mak’Gora Duels to the Death. Notably, a level 40 character was the highest level lost in these duels, and one player impressively won 15 duels consecutively.
