The Lord of the Rings Online, the MMO set in Middle-earth, has been around for 14 years now, making it one of the longest-running exponents of the genre. Obviously there are various ways to reach the maximum level, the fastest of which often involve killing several enemies in various dungeons or raids. However, one player decided to take a different path and managed to reach level 130 by cooking million cakes.
His name is Cookingwithsim and he is a Hobbit on the Evernight server. Every day for the past eight months, Cookingwithsim has been in the kitchen or gathering ingredients to make cakes, slowly progressing level by level.
The level cap was reached about nine days ago, with many players gathered around him to celebrate the achievement of the 205.829.281 experience points needed to earn the last level. Certainly he does not lack patience!
