In 2004 when World of Warcraft initially launched, leveling your character by phone presumably meant calling someone up from a land line and sitting there telling the person actually at the computer what to do during the gameplay. It would have been a terrible idea. But it’s now 2019, and a player is hard at work leveling up a Priest in WoW Classic entirely via smartphone whilst a hundred miles away from the actual computer. Sort of puts the healer with bad reaction times from your last dungeon time in perspective, doesn’t it?
If you would also like to level in Classic without actually being at your computer, this is a stunt you can replicate with the help of Steam Link, a connection between WoW and your Steam account, and a workplace that is intensely forgiving of you sitting around on your phone a whole lot. You could probably tell your boss that you’re trading stocks or bonds or something.
