A bit of a change in the leaderboards as Skyline took down the Harbinger some 2 hours before Aversion, netting them the World 7th, Asia 5th and bumping Aversion to World 8th!

And so we have our new entry to the World First endboss hall of fame, making it 14 now. The last time we have a new guild enter this hallowed group was Exorsus back in Legion, 8 raids, 2 years and 8 months ago, when they got Xavius down.

While we've been focusing a lot on the final boss (obviously), a whole bunch more guilds managed to get the Cabal down and we actually have exactly 40 progressing on the final boss! While it was to be expected due to the small nature of the raid, it's still great to see that many guilds going at an end boss at the same time.

A big day starts very soon, as the Uu'nat nerfs kick in and the final day of the EU reset begins. We have a whole lot of guilds pretty close to each other in the top 5, with Method still being on top, but by very little (and still no word on Pieces' progress, making this very reminiscent of the BoD final EU reset day). Aversion are the closest to Method's 24.5% best try, with this impressive pull, under 2% off!

Exorsus are a bit further away, with their 33.5% pull:

Alpha are just as close as Exorsus, which is doubly impressive due to their 1-2 day disadvantage, sitting at 34%. You can check out their video here.

Method keep pushing further as we're down to 24.5%!

Another Cabal kill has arrived, this time from the US. Club Camel have grabbed the World 8th, US/OC 3rd and are now headed to Uu'nat on 1/2.

And here's another perspective for Limit's Cabal kill:

minor
UPDATE - 25th April, 2019, 8:02 pm (GMT) By Warriorsarri

Aversion is the latest guild to get past The Restless Cabal, giving them a world rank of #6, and EU #4.

minor
UPDATE - 25th April, 2019, 2:02 pm (GMT) By Warriorsarri

Exorsus seems restless in their pursuit of the top spot, and snagged the World #5, EU #3, kill on The Restless Cabal.

minor
UPDATE - 24th April, 2019, 10:41 pm (GMT) By starym

Pieces' lead is growing as no other guild has downed the Cabal just yet, with Aversion coming the closest by far, with a 0.3%/9% wipe! Limit are still at their 9%/7% try from yesterday and Method have progresses a bit more, but are still only at 17.4% total, as you can see from this clip:

And so we have Pieces progressing on Uu'nat alone and pulling ahead constantly. If the final boss is progressively harder as they tend to be, it's going to be a solid challenge, as so far Crucible of Storms has been a pretty memorable race.

With the raid only having two bosses, we're deprived of all the early bosses dying real fast, so that we can know which guild looks to go the hardest and strongest. Only real way to know is to watch the guild that stream and try to figure out their best pulls. This gets further complicated by there being two bosses, so does guild A have better progress if they have one at 15%, and the other at 35%, or the guild that has both bosses at 25%? 

With that in mind, I won't try and list who is currently in the lead in EU, but most all of the streaming guilds have the bosses in the 20-30% range, and in essence are trying to get past the last two runes. 

This raid truly show what happens if you remove all the bosses that get killed in 1-5 pulls, and instead just implement the final two, hard, bosses!

The kill is getting ever closer for Limit, as their best try so far has the bosses at 9% and 7% with 104 pulls. Limit has also gone for a 10 Priest raid comp and Big Dumb Guild's best try is still at 18%, while Wildcard Gaming's is at 11%/28%.
Whether they'll be able to get the boss down today is pretty unclear, which bodes well for the race in general, if Uu'nat is progressively harder and this isn't just another Imperial Vizier Zor'lok situation.

Big Dumb Guild are actually ahead of Limit, having their best try at 18%! BDG have usually gotten a lot of early first kills, but with the difficulty of this particular boss it's impressive that they're this far ahead of Limit at the moment. Of course these percentages could turn out to not matter much, as getting to low % and actually killing the boss are two very different things.

We have some progress as Limit have taken the Restless Cabal down to Fa'thuul at 29% ,and Zaxasj at 23% as their best attempts after 59 pulls.
