BDGG secure World 4th, NA 2nd downing Sylvanas after an extremely hard fought battle.

However Aster have just killed Kel'Thuzad, taking World 10th and Asia 2nd in the process!
Elsewhere Jitianhong and Alpha are tackling the lich themselves, currently stuck at the second Remnant of Kel'Thuzad. They have rounded out the week by polishing off their HC splits and M+ dungeons.

Alpha and JTH are also doing great, having recently taken down Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, both are now at Kel'Thuzad after some Mythic+ and possibly a small break.

As the day draws to a close in Asia, there has been plenty of good progression made by the region's leading guilds. Skyline and Aster both took down Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, claiming Asia 1st and 2nd respectively, and will be expecting to make quick work of Kel'Thuzad tomorrow.
Jitianhong and Alpha are both still working through the Fatescribe encounter, JTH the closest to a kill with a best attempt of 5% thus far.
ChaoJie have come very close to killing Painsmith Raznal, with a best of 1.91%, and will soon be progressing to Guardian, where they will join Mate, the Korean guild that took down Painsmith earlier today.
Having woken up to the news that Echo had won the race, Limit are still in good spirits and are back into the raid themselves starting their Mythic re-clear.
Aster take down Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, World 10th and Asia 2nd!
Method and Pieces both continue to make progress on Sylvanas Windrunner on this crucial last day before tomorrow's EU reset. Method's best currently sits at 76.23% after 164 pulls, whereas Pieces's best sits at 80.41% after 97 pulls.
Before they signed off last night, BDGG's best was 82.47% after 126 pulls. They are back live and doing a Normal reclear for Domination Shards. Given most people expect Complexity Limit to claim World 2nd on Sylvanas, the race for World 3rd is heating up ...
Skyline take down Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, World 9th and Asia 1st!
Alpha-KeaHoarl secure the kill on Guardian of the First Ones, World 14th and Asia 3rd!
Mate have defeated Painsmith Raznal, claiming World 17th and Asia 6th in the process!
Method have a new best on Sylvanas Windrunner, reaching 80.28% and, crucially, Phase 3 for the first time after 150 pulls.
Meanwhile over in Asia the progress continues. ChaoJie continues to work through Painsmith Raznal, with a recent heartbreaking wipe at 1.91% the kill is surely imminent.
Alpha have moved on to Guardian of the First Ones and are still in their preliminary pulls, working out what their initial strategy will be.
Jitianhong, Skyline and Aster are working hard on the Fatescribe Roh-Kalo encounter. Skyline have a best attempt of 34.2%, followed closely by JTH on 43%. Aster are further back around the 70% mark, and have opted to farm more BoEs and M+ to bring up their average item level.
A huge congratulations to Echo on their World First Sylvanas kill. What made that final pull especially impressive is that throughout the encounter they had zero deaths, showing just how good their execution was. The boss took them 176 total pulls and their final kill composition included:
- Tanks: Brewmaster Monk & Protection Paladin
- MDPS: 3x Arms Warriors, Havoc DH, Unholy DK & Enhancement Shaman
- RDPS: 4x Boomkin, MM Hunter, Arcane Mage & 2x Demo Locks
- Healer: 2x Holy Paladins & 2x Disc Priest
One key difference in their approach to maximising their overall DPS when compared to Limit's strategy was the usage of Night Fae Boomkins, bringing their infamous Convoke the Spirits ability. Limit had been opting to use Venthyr Boomkins, theoretically the better choice but in reality for progressing this boss, Ardenweald's finest have clearly come out on top.
Echo have defeated Sylvanas Windrunner World First!
Alpha have defeated Painsmith Raznal, Asia 5th!
Echo have a new best health percentage when exiting Phase 2 of 76.6%.
Looking at the EU guilds on Sylvanas Windrunner, they are all back into Mythic and ready to start their raiding day.
Most excitingly, having seen such close attempts from Complexity Limit, it will be interesting to see what tactical changes Echo have made. With the US reset tomorrow, Echo will be very motivated to secure the kill today!
Complexity Limit have had some really close attempts, and are putting in a late shift in order to try and kill it ahead of Echo.
Speaking of which, Echo are online and doing another split raid before going back into Mythic. Today is looking like the day we see Sylvanas Windrunner fall!
Limit is still at it on Sylvanas though they have to be tired. With as close as Echo was, the pressure is definitely on to get her done tonight.
Club Camel and Imperative down Guardian of the First Ones and this brings them both to 7/10.
Limit wiped at 45.5% of Sylvanas health. Warcraft logs shows .8% wipe and they are going in to pull 186. This is so crazy to watch, it is right there and then boom.
45.8% wipe for Limit. Something is happening.
Limit wipes at 47.3%. They are really trying to to find that extra.
Limit reaches 47.79% health on Sylvanas. With several hours left of raiding for NA, they could actually get this should they find the dps they need to make it happen.
Sylvanas Vitals Check
- Echo having hit 46.4% health, need to get her health to 45% in order to "kill" her.
- Limit hit 49.8% health. They have a lot of raiding time to close that gap before Echo starts back first thing tomorrow.
- Method hit 81.8% health with 119 pulls. They are currently relearning a bit on the heels of adjustments they made in phase 1 to account for recent changes made by Blizzard.
- BDGG hit 82.47% for her health with 101 pulls.
- Pieces hit 83.86% for health with 62 pulls.
Fatescribe is going to need therapy after today, Impact claim World 8th, EU 6th, joining the Kel'Thuzad shuffle crew.
Echo hit 46.4% of Sylvanas health and wiped. 1% and she is done for.
FatSharkYes push past Fatescribe earning World 7th, EU 5th and 8/10 Mythic. A Kel'thuzad kill would certainly make things even more crazy then they already are.
With the reset looming, Blizzard has some information on adjustments being made to the raid. You can check that out here: https://us.forums.blizzard.com/en/wow/t/sanctum-of-domination-hotfixes-coming-with-weekly-reset/1040405
Aversion send Fatescribe Roh-Kalo to his final resting place, taking World 6th, EU 4th and pushing them to Kel'Thuzad
Echo makes excellent progress heading into phase 3 on Sylvanas. Heading in to 150 pulls, showing around 49% with warcraftlogs showing 8.3% for the overall encounter.
Painsmith Raznal failed to stop Soniqs Imperative in their plot to kill him. Imperative take NA 5th for the kill, putting them 6/10.
Aster have defeated Guardian of the First Ones, World 9th and Asia 1st!
Jitianhong secure a World 13th, Asia 3rd kill on Painsmith Raznal!
Aster look the most likely to claim an Asian 1st kill on Guardian of the First Ones, with a current best of 4.02%. Skyline are also progressing through the encounter, although look further away from a kill at this point with a current best of 41.4%, albeit with fewer pulls.
Meanwhile we have three Asian guilds edging closer to a kill on Painsmith Raznal, looking to join Aster and Skyline on Guardian. Jitianhong are in the lead with a current best pull of 2%, closely followed by ChaoJie on 16% and Alpha slightly further back on 21%.
Another new best for Aster as they edge closer and closer to a kill on Guardian of the First Ones, this time with an 8.47% wipe.
Here is an EU round-up for you all! Echo continue to work through the Sylvanas Windrunner encounter, having made some compositional changes to their roster to improve their P3 damage, bringing in extra melee in the form of a third Warrior and a Rogue. Their best is still that dramatic 49.57% attempt yesterday. Current pull counter sits at 125.
Pieces are also pulling the Banshee Queen, currently sitting at a best of 83.92% after 26 total pulls. Method have been out of the raid this morning working on their Keystone Master achievements in M+. They are back in the raid now, with their best attempt still standing at 83.73% after 75 pulls.
Aversion are due to be live soon and will be looking to secure their kill on Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, having reached 70% after 7 pulls yesterday. Impact have already been pulling that boss today and have reached the 40% mark after 22 pulls.
Aster have recorded a new best on Guardian of the First Ones with a 15.5% wipe. Looking very likely they'll be the next guild to secure a kill and move to 7/10.
There seems to be evidence emerging from the Echo camp that there has been a hotfix to Sylvanas Windrunner, with an enrage being added to Colossus in P2 causing the add to deal 900% increase damage. Their current discussions would imply that the encounter is now not possible to overcome this reset.
Skyline have killed Painsmith Raznal! World 12th, Asia 2nd after 171 pulls, with a very dramatic ending involving some solo Mage heroics!
Echo are back in the raid and pulling Sylvanas. Will we see a World First today?
Both Jitianhong and Skyline are close to catching up with Aster. Jitianhong wiping at 4% and Skyline wiping at 6.2%.
Aster have defeated Painsmith Raznal, Asia 1st! With 230 pulls, according to an onscreen WeakAura.
Aster is now really close to getting Painsmith Raznal down, with another incredibly close best of 0.6%.
Aster have another nail biting attempt on Painsmith Raznal, wiping at 0.8%!
Skyline also have a new best attempt of 15.9%.
Pieces has defeated Kel'Thuzad after 42 pulls, World 5th and EU 3rd!
All our CN top-5 guilds are up and doing well as China moves into the afternoon hours. This is their third day on Painsmith Raznal and all guilds are making good progress, getting themselves consistently into phase 3 of the fight.
- Aster are having great pulls, only to wipe at 2.26%
- Skyline now stand at a best of 17.9%
- Chao Jie are still struggling a little more than the other guilds, but their best stands at 27%
- Alpha’s new best stands around 20%
- JTH continues their progress with no changes in new best which stands at 20%
Aster has just reached a new best of 2.26% on Painsmith Raznal, will they be the first Asian guild to defeat the boss?
Looking at the leading two guilds on the fight to claim World First Sylvanas Windrunner, Complexity Limit has finished their raiding day and Echo will soon be starting for theirs.
It's been said that Echo's focus now will be adjusting their approach to funnel more single-target DPS during Phase 2, including composition changes. The Echo Mail wearers will be happy as they will being doing Mail splits this morning.
Later today, when Echo return to Mythic Sylvanas Windrunner, you won't want to miss it!
Club Camel down Painsmith Raznal, claiming the World 9th, NA 3rd kill.
Limit gets a best pull on Sylvanas of 11.2% with 126 pulls far. BDGG best attempt is the same as previously reported, 67.9%.
It about time for a quick vitals check of our top 10 NA guilds on day 6 of this race.
- Complexity Limit: 60.11% best attempt.
- BDGG: 83.94% best attempt.
- Soniqs Imperative: 1% best attempt.
- Club Camel: 6% best attempt.
- Instant Dollars: 13% best attempt.
- FlashPoint KTB: 37.3% best attempt.
- Vesper: 66% best attempt.
Remnant of Ner'zhul
- xD: 28.9% best attempt.
- Midwinter: killed boss today.
Guardian of the First Ones fell to Impact, making this the World 8th, EU 6th kill.
Looking at it further, Sylvanas Windrunner being defeated at 45% was also seemingly alluded to in official Patch Notes dated July 13th with the following text: "The total damage players must deliver to Sylvanas Windrunner has been reduced by approximately 5% in Normal and Heroic difficulties".
After the shock of getting Sylvanas Windrunner sub 50%, Echo are calling it a night and may be doing more splits or M+ tomorrow for gear. They will now be strategizing how to squeeze out even more DPS and considering what classes they are bringing for more damage.
The belief was that Mythic Sylvanas Windrunner actually dies at 45% (instead of at 50% health on Heroic/Normal), as data-mined on July 8th and is now assumed to be confirmed by Echo getting Sylvanas to 49%.
What's also very interesting here is that by watching Echo's progress, Complexity Limit have been able to confirm this information, and can now see what it will take to defeat the last boss. They have jumped out of Mythic and into more split runs. Perhaps with enough time in their raiding day to claim that World First whilst EU sleeps?
Echo hits 49% of Sylvanas health, expecting a kill and that's not what happened. This is why I have been giving the overall encounter % as the math was not adding up. Many assumed it was like Heroic and Normal, which honestly was logical but in truth it feels like it should be different on Mythic.
FatSharkYes downs Guardian of the First Ones claiming World 7th and EU 5th for this boss.
LESS THAN 1% wipe for Echo on Sylvanas. This is going to happen.
Aversion kill Guardian of the First Ones taking World 6th, EU 4th bringing them 7/10.
With all eyes on Echo as they get closer and closer to ending Sylvanas reaching 103 pulls and 2.3%, Limit is 23.5% with 107 pulls. Method hit 67.5% with 55 pulls and BDGG rising to the challenge has a best attempt of 67.9% with 23 pulls.
Echo wiped at 2.3% on Sylvanas. Holy tacos!
Vitals check time for the Mythic heroes working on Sylvanas.
- Echo is extremely close with a 3.6% best attempt.
- Limit is also close with a 23.5% best attempt.
- BDGG hot the trail with a 68.7% best attempt
- Method hot the trail with a 67.5%% best attempt.
The above % is based on the overall encounter, and will be different than what these guilds streams will show.
Anyone else feel the electricity in the air?
Aversion take down Painsmith Raznal! World 8th, EU 6th after 145 pulls. They will now join FatSharkYes and Impact on Guardian.
Aster are continually reaching the sub-10% mark on Painsmith Raznal, however it is getting late local time. They'll need a very clean pull to get the boss down and take Asia 1st before heading to bed.
Echo and Limit are neck-and-neck on Sylvanas. Echo just wiped at 60.1%, with Limit wiping at almost exactly the same time on 61.8%. New bests for both guilds.
Limit are back in action now and starting their pulls on Sylvanas Windrunner. Their best effort yesterday was 67.54%. Pull 96 and counting ... the race is on.
Aversion go agonisingly close to a World 8th kill on Painsmith Raznal, wiping on 0.12% and then 2% on the very next pull.
Painsmith Raznal has been conquered by another EU team! This time by Impact, after 152 pulls and taking World 7th, EU 5th in the process. In quite dramatic fashion, too.
We have confirmation of a kill on Painsmith Raznal for FatSharkYes after 98 pulls, giving them World 6th, EU 4th!
A heartbreaking wipe on Painsmith Raznal for Impact, wiping at 0.79% with just 200k HP remaining on their 150th pull.
And Fatescribe Roh-Kalo goes down for Pieces! 43 total pulls for World 5th, EU 3rd!
Further progress is being made on Painsmith Raznal over in Asia, with updated best pulls coming in from a variety of guilds:
Aster: 8% Jitianhong: 20% Alpha, Skyline & ChaoJie: 39%
Aster made three changes to their raid composition, taking a while to get back to their previous progress point. However a kill now looks imminent. Alpha and Skyline are currently off-stream while they work through their HC splits.
Echo record a new best on Sylvanas Windrunner of 65.2% on their 82nd pull!
Elsewhere in EU Method continue to make good progress through P1, with a current best of 83.9% after 21 pulls. Pieces are seemingly done with their HC splits and are back working through the Fatescribe encounter, with a best attempt of 15% after 30 pulls. Aversion are going close to a kill on Painsmith, sitting at a recent best of 3.86% after 131 pulls.
As we say that, Aster go ahead and smash their previous best with a fantastic pull on Painsmith Raznal wiping at just the 8% mark. Asia 1st incoming?
It is well into the afternoon in China (18:15 Shanghai) and our 5 top Chinese guilds have been making great progress on Painsmith Raznal. All of them are now comfortably reaching the last phase only to realise that it now gets .... painful. Current best attempts sit at:
Aster: 29.5% Jitianhong: 39% Alpha-KeaHoarl: 39% Skyline: 39% ChaoJie: 39%
Most have now completed all of their HC splits or are in the process of doing so.
Echo have recorded a new best on Sylvanas Windrunner, wiping at 72.69% but, rather crucially, reaching Phase 3 for the first time.
Method slaughters Kel’Thuzad claiming World 4th, EU 2nd. Not only does this bring them 9/10, Method step into the Sylvanas battle alongside Echo, Limit and BDGG. What a time to be alive and bare witness to a race with four powerhouse guilds battling a final boss. Yes, I said four. Rise champions, rise!
Echo are back online and working on Sylvanas ... with no less than FIVE Boomkins stacked in the raid.
Elsewhere Method are clearing trash and prepping to begin their pulls on Kel'Thuzad. They will be expecting a fast kill this morning based on their excellent progress last night.
Happy Sunday morning EU. Let's have a quick recap of some top 10 guild's progression while you drink your coffee and get hyped for what is definitely going to be an exciting and suspenseful Race to World First roller coaster ride.
- Echo starts the day with a best attempt of 81.97% (62.3% overall encounter progress) with 53 pulls so far.
- Method starts the day with a best attempt of 2.2% with 39 pulls so far.
- Pieces start the day with a best attempt of 45.5% with 11 pulls so far.
- Aversion starts the day with a best attempt of 13.6%.
- FatSharkYes starts the day with a best attempt of 3%.
- Halcyon starts the day with a best attempt of 38.3%.
- MNM starts the day with a best attempt of 43.5%.
- Memento starts the day with a best attempt of 69.7%
Limit end their day in a pretty sweet spot, 70.28% (40% overall encounter progress) with 91 pulls on Sylvanas. BDGG joining Limit and Echo at the boots of the Banshee proves my sentiment in a previous update, this is truly anyone's game to win.
EU comes online soon which means I better get boss standings ready and posted. Good night NA.
Kel'Thuzad and his remnants shatter before BDGG, bestowing them World 3rd, NA 2nd for the kill. They are now 9/10 Mythic, Sylvanas bound joining Limit & Echo.
We are inching closer to end of NA raid day, but we are not there yet.
Limit gains further progress on Sylvanas, passing the previous best attempt from about 2 hours ago, 73.03% nearing 87 pulls.
BDGG is at 11.62% with 48 pulls on Kel’Thuzad. Sounding tired, but determined.
Limit as a new best pull of 75.81%. (51% overall encounter progress) on Sylvanas.
Vesper kills Soulrender, gaining 9th kill spot for NA.
BDGG is really pushing Kel'Thuzad to the brink, reaching 20.87% for a best attempt 31 pulls and counting. As a side note, this is actually a really fun fight to watch.
Limit is entering the 70 pull range with Sylvanas with no new best attempt percent wise at 77.82%. (55% overall encounter progress). Not uncommon, end boss fights are largely about pacing and consist pulls at each progression barrier.
BDGG is currently at dinner until 6pm PST. When they return, they are in a really good position to see Kel'Thuzad dead before the night is over, with a best attempt of 33.5% and 25 pulls.
As I mentioned at earlier in the day, one thing we have come to expect from Limit is their analytical approach to working through tough mechanics or blockers. Before they broke for dinner, Limit saw a new best attempt of 77.82%. (55% overall encounter progress)
This progress got them to Phase 3, which is insane. Will we see Sylvanas go down before Echo comes online? Honestly, this whole race has been one shake up after another. It truly is anyone's game to win.
Method finishes their last pull of a very late EU day 5 with a best attempt of 2.2% and 39 wipes on Kel'Thuzad. Hoping to come back in the morning after much need sleep, ready down him.
BDGG steadfast in their resolve, hit a best attempt of 45% on KT with about 20 pulls so far.
Method reach 2.2% with 37 pulls on Kel'Thuzad while BDGG is working KT hard with a best attempt of 56%, 17 pulls in with plenty of NA hours left day 5 of this race.
Echo did call it night, with huge strides made in the Sylvanas fight. Stream: 81.97% Warcraftlogs: 62.3% Ending the day 53 pulls in is a great position to be in.
Limit has a lot of NA time to hone their execution, nearing 51 pulls. They can take their time today, she is not going down easily. Stream: 83.35% Warcraftlogs: 66.3%
Reminder, this encounter is assumed to end when Sylvanas reaches 50% health. The stream best attempt tracking is in relation to her health while Warcraftlogs data is overall encounter progression.
Soulrender Dormazain falls to Flashpoint KTB, taking NA 8th for the kill.
Echo is progressing deeper into the Sylvanas battle, working through and refining phase 2 hitting 81.9% (Stream) | 62.3% (WCL) with 37 pulls in.
Limit in equal measure, working through mechanics and adjusting. This is of-course what we have come to expect. Best attempt is 83.9% (Stream) | 67.5% (WCL) and 29 pulls so far.
Reminder, this encounter is assumed to end when Sylvanas reaches 50% health.
Final boss fights are always an interesting watch. We get to see these top guilds tweak as they go, problem solve on the fly and really show the skills that brought them to this very day.
Method sees a best attempt on Kel'Thuzad of 25.6% at a around 17 pulls. They likely have about another hour give or take to tick this boss down before sleep.
Pieces, the only guild currently on Fatescribe, is sitting at about 45% with around 11 pulls.
Painsmith progress is getting close for Aversion (13.6%) and Fatsharkyes (14.2%).
BDGG downs Fatescribe Roh-Kalo earning World 4th, NA 2nd. This puts them 8/10 and join Method on Kel'Thuzad.
Sneaky sneaky Zero Empathy, sliding in a Soulrender Dormazain kill, bringing them to 5/10.
Mid-morning for NA, evening for EU we have a day ahead of us and to my dismay, Sylvanas requires math for the % progress. Have no fear, I will make that a bit less math for our updates today.
Given this fight essentially stops at 50% of Sylvanas health Normal and Heroic, the assumption is the same is true for Mythic unless we get lucky with a super secret phase. Fingers crossed.
Streams for Limit and Echo are tracking for the % on best attempt is using a creative math equation for that number based on the bosses health, which naturally will be different from warcraftlogs.com based off the assumption the fight is done at 50%. Warcraftlogs gives the progress % based on the overall encounter progress.
In the interest of accurate updates, I am going to give you both numbers in the event Warcraft logs ends up being the correct number.
- Stream: 83.9% with 18 pulls
- Warcraftlogs: 67.5%
- Stream: 83.9% with 24 pulls
- Warcraftlogs: 67.5%
Limit is going to take a break for lunch, then they will be back at it.
Method have defeated Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, World 3rd and EU 2nd!
Complexity Limit are back from their break, and with their first pull of Sylvanas Windrunner being 85.4% (boss health), they have already almost matched Echo's progress, but have yet to see the first transition phase.
Complexity Limit and Echo are taking a break, let the race to kill the final boss and claim the World First title begin!
Taking a look at the top 5 Asian guilds, and they are going strong trying to give Painsmith Raznal a taste of his own medicine.
As the newest guild to progress the boss, Chao Jie have had a very steep learning curve, and are now consistently moving into the first intermission, wiping at the 72% mark.
- Skyline - Piansmith Raznal - 50.1%
- JTH - Painsmith Raznal - 50%
- Aster - Painsmith Raznal - 40%
- Alpha - Painsmith Raznal - 69%
- ChaoJie - Painsmith Raznal - 72%
There is nothing that indicates these guilds are ready to stop for the night, just yet.
Complexity Limit have defeated Kel'Thuzad, World 2nd and US/OC 1st!
Echo's progress is fast so far, with a new best of 70% (85% boss health) on pull number 3.
Looking at their Kel'Thuzad kill, it only took 22 pulls to defeat the boss. Lets hope that Sylvanas Windrunner isn't such a short boss and puts up a fight for a challenging end boss!
Echo waste no time, achieving a best of 88.5% on their first pull of Sylvanas Windrunner.
Their second pull is already looking better than their first!
Echo have defeated Kel'Thuzad, World 1st and putting them to the top of the leaderboard!
Chao Jie has defeated Soulrender Dormazain, Asia 5th!
They join Aster, Skyline, Jitianhong and Alpha on Painsmith Raznal.
Echo jump ahead of Complexity Limit with a new best attempt of 4% (Remnant dead, just Kel'Thuzad left alive), compared to Complexity Limit's best of 27%.
It looks like we will be seeing Kel'Thuzad being defeated today. It's now interesting to if see Echo secure world first Kel'Thuzad before Complexity Limit, who will soon be going back into the raid.
Pieces has defeated Guardian of the First Ones, World 5th and EU 3rd!
Progress is going strong today, although with a distinct lack of boss kills from the top 10 for a while, hopefully that will change soon.
Until then, here is a quick overview of some of the best attempts from guilds so far:
- Echo - Kel'Thuzad - 44.55%
- Method - Fatescribe Roh-Kalo - 39.38%
- Pieces - Guardian of the First Ones - 1.00%
- Aversion - Painsmith Raznal - 38.5%
- Impact - Painsmith Raznal - 38.36%
- Skyline - Piansmith Raznal - 50.1%
- JTH - Painsmith Raznal - 50%
- Aster - Painsmith Raznal - 40%
- Alpha - Painsmith Raznal - 72%
Alpha has defeated Soulrender Dormazain, Asia 4th!
After more than a day on this boss, Alpha now heads over to Painsmith Raznal to join up with Astra, Skyline and JTH. All four guilds are now enjoying a well deserved dinner break, but will get started shortly to try and get Painsmith Raznal down before the end of their day.
We still don't have eyes on Chao Jie as they are not streaming, so we are not entirely sure of their progress.
Echo have defeated Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, World 2nd and EU 1st!
Echo are getting very close to securing the World 2nd kill of Fatescribe Roh-Kalo, with multiple low % attempts today, their last wipe was at 4%.
Over in China, Alpha is steadily beating down those numbers on Soulrender Dormazain, now with a new best of 8%. Aster have had a couple of unlucky pulls. JTH have really cleaned up their runs through the spiked maze during the first intermission and now holds a new best of 55%. Similarly, Skyline have also really improved getting through the first intermission.
Skyline and JTH are truly back-2-back on Painsmith Raznal!
Pieces have defeated Painsmith Raznal, World 5th & EU 3rd!
Echo's first pull of the day on Fatescribe Roh-Kalo sees them hitting a new best of 26.7%!
With yesterday being a day of splits for them, they look ready to take down this boss today.
Pieces have a nail biting attempt on Painsmith Raznal, wiping at 1.65%!
With such a low attempt, it really could be killed on any pull, so check their stream out to catch it live.
Taking a look at Painsmith Raznal and what Skyline, Aster and JTH are going through right now, we can see:
- Skyline, they get through the first intermission with a few dead, similar to the learning curve of most of the guilds that have killed the boss so far.
- JTH have similar issues with running trough the spiked maze and comes through with a few more dead than Skyline.
- Finally, we have Aster, who have just started their learning curve. They finished their splits a couple of hours ago and are currently taking a quick break.
Well into the afternoon in China (15:40pm Shanghai), Aster, Skyline, JTH and Alpha are still pulling. As you know Aster, Skyline and JTH managed to kill Soulrender Dormazain and have now started the steep learning curve on Painsmith Raznal.
Alpha is still on Soulrender, but it is looking more than likely they should be able to take him down today.
Chao Jie is currently not streaming, so we are unsure of their progression today, but when we said our farewells last night they were still on Soulrender Dormazain. We hope they will be booting up the stream shortly!
While BDGG meeting for secret strategy things prepping for Fatescribe, looks like Limit is making really solid progress on Kel'thuzad. Best attempt is about 44%, making it to remnant 2 pretty consistently. Praise to the nifty tracker they added to their stream, making it easier to see progress on pulls for this boss.
Guardian of the First Ones was no match for BDGG as it is dead and they join Method and Echo at the 7/10 party. BDGG take World 4th, NA 2nd!
While there is a quick quiet moment, checking in around NA, Limit's focus after they are done with break will of-course be back to beating on Kel'thuzad. I really want to have a solid % attempt to give here, but with KT and Remnant of KT, its a bit tricky to give a quick picture. There are 3 separate Remnants of KT that need to be killed. With that said, I am going to do my best to give KT % and how many remnants have been killed. Math is hard, no judgement.
Overall they are at about 59.2%, with 2 Remnants killed and a pull count of 25. This may take them a bit to get into their groove, but still probably better than Painsmith.
Club Camel brings home NA 5th for Soulrender, making them 5/10.

Painsmith Ranzal is still proving to be a major challenge for the 5/10 guilds. Method pushed through to 9.9% while BDGG is dancing on the 5.5% mark. Pieces sitting well at 7.1%. Instant Dollars is at 54.3%. Aversion is at 46% and Fatsharkyes are just getting started.

Over in Asia we have Jitianhong, Skyline, ChaoJie and Aster all pulling Soulrender Dormazain hunting that Asia 1st kill, whilst Alpha are working through their Heroic splits.
Complexity Limit seem to be making light work of the early Fatescribe Roh-Kalo phases, recording a best of 48.42% after only 8 pulls.
Echo have been running HC Splits all day and will likely be itching to get back in to the raid soon to tackle the encounter themselves.
Complexity Limit are up and running and have kicked off their Fatescribe Roh-Kalo progress, with a current best of 73.37%.
Pieces have a new best on Painsmith Raznal at 7.09%, 111 pulls and counting. Method's best currently sits at 15.02% with 99 pulls. Aversion are further back on 47%.

Skyline has defeated Remnant of Ner'zhul, Asia 2nd! Taking a total of 95 pulls.
With the EU primed to wake up and start EU progress day #3, guilds are logging in and starting up.
With Echo still holding onto their splits, it will be interesting to see when they choose to do them. Complexity Limit appear to have stopped for today, so its quite possible Echo will take that opportunity to start their day off in Heroic splits before more attempts on Fatescribe Roh-Kalo.
Complexity Limit have defeated Guardian of the First Ones, World 2nd, US/OC 1st!
Strawberry Puppy Kisses gives Ner’zhul the death kiss, getting US 11th.

While BDGG is doing some Heroic splits and Limit is 143 pulls in on Painsmith at 19.8%, I recommend popping over to say hello to Midwinter and xD. They have been working hard on Soulrender and could use a little pick me up. Of-course, by pick me up I mean spamming tacos in chat.
Of-course as I finish my large update post, Club Camel downs Remnant of Ner'zhul, taking US 5th which puts them 4/10.
As we head in to the evening for NA, lets see what in the World of Warcraft is going on with how some NA guilds are progressing.

Echo slaughters Guardian of the First Ones with yet another World 1st for day 3 on the 21st pull! This makes 7/10 Mythic bosses cleared and honestly, the guild to beat. So much fierce, focus and steadfast will for this race, I can't even try to predict who will take the title home.

Wasting no time, Echo has activated take no prisoner mode, reaching 35.37% with only 9 pulls on Guardian of the First Ones.

Ner'zhul is certainly having a rough day as Impact claims World 10th, EU 6th.

Method record a new best attempt of 11.78% on Soulrender Dormazain, putting them ever so slightly ahead of Aversion's best. The race for World 6th. EU 3rd is on!
Meanwhile over in Asia we are edging ever so close to an Asia 1st kill on Remnant of Ner'zhul. Current best attempts sit at: Aster (3.51%), JTH (3.76%), Skyline (18.1%), ChaoJie (18.69%) and Alpha (35%).

Remnant of Ner'zhul - Impact (11%) Soulrender Dormazain - Aversion (11.9%), Method (20.24%) Painsmith Raznal - Echo (9.83%), Pieces (44.81%)
The battle for Asia 1st Remnant of Ner'zhul is heating up! Skyline (18%), JTH (3.8%) and Aster (3.5%) are all within kill-range now, and a clean pull from any one of them could lead to the kill being secured.
Alpha and ChaoJie are a little behind, currently wiping in the 30-35% range.
Echo record a new best on Painsmith Raznal, going close with an 11% pull with multiple DPS members down. If they can reach that point with everyone still alive, then a kill will be secured. Is the World First kill imminent?

Remnant of Ner'zhul - JTH 4%, Alpha 33%, Skyline 35%, Aster 30%, Impact 33% Soulrender Dormazain - Aversion 34%, Method 21% Painsmith Raznal - Echo 29%, Pieces 68%

Method continue with their heroic split run, attempting to match other guilds that have killed Soulrender Dormazain with 1 item level average average.
Echo are taking a break from Painsmith Raznal to run normal mode, with specific focus on going after missing Shards of Domination. Thanks to Shards being a power factor, they keep Normal difficulty relevant for RWF preparation!

Chao Jie appear to have stopped for a break. Skyline, Alpha, Aster and Jitianhong continue to pull Remnant of Ner'zhul.
Echo are still pushing forward with the challenge of downing Painsmith Raznal, achieving a new best of 28.7%!
It looks like the majority of the guilds in Asia are opting to go for Remnant of Ner'zhul first, instead of Soulrender Dormazain.
Chao Jie, Jitianhong and Aster are all pulling Remnant, making steady progress.
Skyline are outside of the raid doing M+ and Alpha are doing Sylvanas Windrunner splits.
Taking a look at the Asia regions, there quite a few guilds making quick progress.
With a flurry of bosses dropping since their region unlocked, we see Jitianhong, Alpha, Aster, Skyline, Chao Jie and Mate all defeating the first 3 bosses.

Next up, Painsmith Raznal!
Instant Dollars shouts to the world, "Hi, we are here!" Killing Ner'zhul taking World 6th, NA 3rd and moving up to rank 4 overall. Closing the night in a sweet spot of 5/10.
Tricksy little goblins and their ball dodging rocket jumps for days. Limit with goblins in tow are pushing past 123 pulls with a new best attempt of 19.8%. Will we see Painsmith Raznal go down tonight?
Here I am thinking NA gave everything they had and took a small break to do dailies. Jokes on me, BDGG score a World 5th Soulrender Dormazain kill after only 47 pulls. This shoots them to World rank 3rd and NA rank 2nd. What a day for action.
Skyline are now 3/10, taking out The Nine for Asia 1st.
Skyline takes Asia 1st for Eye of the Jailer, putting them at 2/10 Mythic. While Naraku's Son joins Astar and Skyline, defeating Tarragrue.
Instant Dollars joins the 4/10 Mythic club, killing Soulrender Dormazain and a shiny new World 4th kill trophy. They are rank 4th for NA and rank 7th for the World. It warms this warlocks heart to see so many guilds making the RWF dream one step closer to reality.
Limit sees a best attempt of 33.7% on Painsmith Raznal as we inch closer to end-of-day for NA. The pull count is 109 and climbing. I think it is safe to say they are not done until Painsmith is done.
BDGG claims victory with Remnant of Ner'zhul dead on the floor taking World 5th, NA 3rd with 4/10 for day 2.
Skyline downs Tarragrue taking 2nd for Asia.

Asia is online and already at it! China guild, Aster grabs the first Tarragrue kill for the region.
After 128 pulls and a heartbreaking 0.7% wipe, Soniqs Imperative sends Remnant of Ner'zhul home. World 4th kill achievement unlocked, placing them in World 5th overall at 4/10.
Soulrender still lives for many guilds, unfortunately. Method comes close with a recent best attempt of 20.24% 18 pulls in. Interestingly, Instant Dollars (29.1%) and Midwinter (29.8%) are catching up at a steady pace.
Method refusing to relent on Soulrender Dormazain with a new best attempt of 29.64%. Echo is fighting hard to claim World First Painsmith Raznal hitting 38.4% for the latest best attempt so far.
Method is gaining solid traction on Soulrender Dormazain reaching 36.4%, 9 pulls so far. Instant Dollars hit 29.1% and Midwinter is at 36.5%.
Soniqs Imperative is so close to a Remnant of Ner'zhul kill, we can smell the Spite! 104 pulls and a 0.7% wipe are both amazing and painful. BDGG is holding tight 15.2% with 51 pulls. Pieces are also hanging in there with 33.9%, 14 pulls in. Blood Legion, Flashpoint KTB, and Camel Club are also on Ner'zhul.
Limit and Echo are inching closer to putting an end to the aptly named Painsmith Raznal. Echo reached 51.6% with 29 pulls and Limit reaching 50 pulls hitting 38.7%.
Let's check-in around the nerd world and see how the RWF guilds are progressing halfway into day 2.
Painsmith Raznal, the spike, ball, and fiery death enthusiast is living up to his name for Echo and Limit. Echo with a best attempt of 68% and Limit continues steady progress with a new best attempt of 49.42%.

Method downs Remnant of Ner'zhul, sniping world 3rd and EU 2nd.
Echo takes down Soulrender Dormazain giving them World 2nd and EU 1st. This puts them neck and neck with Limit at 5/10 Mythic bosses killed.
Echo go close on Soulrender Dormazain, with a 1% wipe on their 22nd pull!
For those just tuning in, here's a recap for you! It’s been a busy day in the EU region and we have seen a plethora of guilds trying their best in the Mythic raids since it opened this morning at 10:00 CEST. The first boss, The Tarragrue, seems to be a fairly easy boss for most guilds, while Eye of the Jailer presents a little more of a challenge. The third boss, The Nine, has actually taken most guilds less pulls than they required on the Eye, with 10 EU guilds currently having passed this point without much difficulty.
At 3/10M guilds are presented with the choice of tackling either Remnant of Ner’zhul or Soulrender Dormazain. Both bosses are proving to be a ramp up in difficulty, despite the hotfixes that came in overnight on Soulrender.
Thus far only Echo of the EU guilds have managed to kill Remnant, claiming the World 2nd and EU 1st. They are currently in the lead on Soulrender too with a current best of 6.8% after 17 pulls.
Pieces and Method are battling out on each of these bosses with Pieces on Soulrender Dormazain with a best of 17.1% after 24 pulls. Method meanwhile chose to progress Remnant first and have a current best of 13% after 29 pulls.
Aversion is doing HC splits after a break and some splits. In the Mythic Raid they are head to head with Method on Remnant with only 5 pulls and a best of 34%.
Bloom, Unwealthy Homeless Men and Sloth have all halted raiding at 3/10M for now and have head into HC splits and M+.
Whilst all of this is going on, race leaders Complexity Limit have just booted up their stream!
Pieces continue their progress on Soulrender Dormazain, with a current best of 26% after 23 total pulls. Echo are down at the 7% range after 17 pulls.
Method meanwhile record a new best on Remnant of Ner'zhul on their 25th pull at 35%.
Echo go close on Soulrender Dormazain with a 6.8% wipe.
Elsewhere Unwealthy Homeless Men become the 10th EU guild to defeat The Nine.

Bloom have conquered The Nine after 10 pulls, securing EU 9th in the process.
FatSharkYes have defeated The Nine after 4 pulls, putting their kill at EU 8th.
We have two more confirmed kills on The Nine, with Exposed and Impact claiming EU 6th and 7th respectively!
FatSharkYes and Impact come in with the EU 9th and 10th kills on Eye of the Jailer.
Unwealthy Homeless Men secure EU 7th Eye of the Jailer!
Closely followed by Bloom who secured the EU 8th kill, defeating the encounter on their 24th pull!
Echo go close on Soulrender Dormazain with a 7% wipe on only their 5th pull, hitting the enrage timer.
Method also record a new best on their 5th pull on Remnant of Ner'zhul, hitting 45.6%.
Progress continues for the EU guilds that have reached Soulrender Dormazain, with Echo and Pieces on 47% and 42% respectively. It is worth noting that Pieces have been on the boss for longer however, given that they opted to work on Soulrender first rather than Remnant of Ner'zhul.
Method have opted to head to Remnant before Soulrender, the order that Echo and most NA guilds opted for.
Aversion's break looks to be over as they head back into the raid to continue progress on Remnant as well.

Both Echo and Aversion are back underway with pulls on Remnant of Ner'zhul. Echo's current best is 38% whilst Aversion's is 34%!
Pieces are currently on a break, whilst Method and Bloom continue with their progress on Eye of the Jailer.
Aversion have conquered The Nine with an impressive EU 2nd, requiring only a single pull! Will be interesting to see now whether they choose to move on to Remnant of Ner'zhul as so many NA guilds opted to do, or whether or not the hotfixes to Soulrender Dormazain will make that encounter the EU next boss of choice.
Method have defeated The Tarragrue, EU 9th and are officially in the race!

Currently we have Echo at the Remnant of Ner'zhul, having had 1 wipe so far.

The EU servers are live and guilds are ready to go!
Today, we see guilds opting to do Torghast, daily quests, Mythic+, PvP and a quick World Boss.
Echo are preparing to start Mythic Sanctum of Domination.
Rejoicing in their victory and a solid day of progression, Limit is calling it night for the stream. Likely doing a couple offline pulls to what they're up against for RWF day 2.
Soniqs Imperative is really giving everything they got to see Remnant of Ner'zhul die, making it to 4% with 88 hard-fought pulls. BDGG is also still doing the Ner'zhul square dance, reaching 15.2% with 46 pulls.
Limit downs Soulrender Dormazain claiming World 1st, bringing them to 5/10 for Mythic Sanctum of Domination.
As day 1 for NA starts to wind down, a quick check of the current boss kill numbers proves telling for the number of guilds engaged in Mythic progression this tier. Seems while the veteran raiders focused on Heroic splits, many guilds took advantage by logging kills.
Current Mythic kill count thanks to the hard-working raid logging enthusiasts at Warcraft Logs.
- Tarragrue has been killed by 287 guilds.
- Eye of the Jailer has been killed by 34 guilds.
- The Nine has been killed by 20 guilds.
While Remnant of Ner'zhul falling only once to Complexity Limit so far. I do appreciate we are only 4 boss kills on day 1 for North America as of this update. Really makes for a fun race with a smaller gap, giving many guilds the opportunity to step into the light.
Limit is back, post Soulrender Dormazain Echoing Screams nerf to see this boss go down by their hands before night's end.
BDGG (25.7%) and Imperative (5.5%) are still making great progress on Ner'zhul.

Seems we have the first progress blocker as Soulrender Dormazain continues to deny further meaningful progression.

MOAR HEALS! Limit changes up their approach on Soulrender Dormazain in hopes of changing their best attempt of 31% to dead. Using 6 healers to save the chain damage day and double Blood DK's for the heavy lifting.
Similarly, BDGG has 5 healers and is also using double Blood DK's.
The Eye of the Jailer just can't catch a break today. Fused takes out Eye grabbing the World 7th spot.
