Guild Wars 2 player reaches level 80 cap pre-launch

Guild Wars 2 isn't even officially out yet, but while newbie Dave is still figuring out what button does what, some clever clogs has only gone and power-levelled right to the experience cap.

MMO Culture reports the level 80 Surfeuz plays a crafter, and managed the amazing feat thanks to assistance from his guild, War Legend, which donated materials.

"Be aware that this was not through normal levelling. A few users have made us aware of unusual ways to level very fast. We're fixing these issues as I type," ArenaNet's Mike O'Brien said on Reddit.

Guild Wars 2 launches in just a few short hours, at midnight PDT. Those who pre-purchased have been enjoying a headstart period.

Thanks, Talkar!
