Guild Wars 2 – War Legend clarifies its level 80 procedure

Less than 2 days after Guild Wars 2’s head start. the game found its first level 80 character from French guild War Legend, with the achievement going to a player named Surfeuze. With this news hitting the internet, War Legend’s admin sent me an email to clarify the procedure, and confirming that nothing illegal was utilized in the process.

Thank you for relaying our achievement !
I’d like to give you a little more explanation about our methods (even thoug I saw the “update”).
Due to some rumors about an “all craft levelling” plus Mike O’Brien’s message about “abnormal leveling” on reddit, most people seem to think that the achievement isn’t legit, so we’d like you, if possible, to explain that the fisrt 60 levels were done in “classical” PvE and without any “exploit bug” or “cheat”. Only the lasts 20 levels used crafting, we didn’t use WvW either.
To summarize : PvE and crafting were the only used methods, and we firmly affirm that all this was normal and “legal”.
Thank you for unerstanding.
