The Hollydae Project



Some folks expressed interest about this in my introductory post, so I thought I would share the Hollydae Project here.

Basically I am leveling exclusively through non violent quests, gathering skills, and exploration. I initially considered pet battles, but after two, I felt it was out of theme with the project. I noticed I had some kills, today and they are attributed to three things: blizzard fetch quests where they decided to include a guardian NPC that could not be dismissed, pet battles, and me jumping the gun on healing other players around me.

Updates are 2-3 times a day after I have had some play time. (Completely dependent on work and life obligations.)

You can follow the Tumblr, and the Introductory post is here: The Hollydae project
I also broadcast via twitch, and announce broadcasts via twitter. (I am not currently doing voice over twitch, I am usually pretty quiet while playing.)


The fact that you do 1-2 hour increments makes it seem like a nice little side hobby you can work on in your spare time. Low stress and taking it slow also makes it more enjoyable I bet. Way more than just blazing through the content just to get to the end for /pvp/gearing/raiding. Keep the Hollydae train rollin’ baby!


Thanks! Yeah my play time seems to be pretty segmented unless I make a point to block out otherwise.


I posted it on our fb page:




How’s the Hollydae project coming along @MrSavage?


It’s going very well! Made 20 yesterday!

All progress is documented at

I’m going to start looking at the local videos and try to put together something for Youtube.


Thats only what… 80 more levels to go? :wink: Thanks for the update!


It’s been going fast. Sometimes. Lots of running away.


I got a good grind in this last weekend, and we are up to 23. Gaining my mount really opened things up. The posts on Tumblr are queued fro twice a day updates and are syndicated to the twitter feed.

I’m hoping to make 25 or 30 by the New Year. It seems to be about a level an hour right now, so that works out pretty good ok.
