The Nighthold Progress page will be up soon and ready for Tuesday's Mythic opening, so check back here for the start of possibly THE most exciting and tense progress race to date.
Trial of Valor Mythic has come and since the guilds aren't quite looking at it as a proper raid and challenge we decided to cover it in a bit les grand manner. You can check out the progress coverage in this article: http://bit.ly/2fCuDZp
It seems ShadowCream nabbed the World 29th (Asia 6th) Xavius just before Nihilum and Indominatum, knocking down the two guilds from the previous update by one spot (updated that as well). Meanwhile, we had three US guilds cross the finish line in a short amount of time, with DNO Gaming leading the charge ahead of loudest guild name ever WHATEVER WERE AWESOME and longest guild name ever Strawberry Puppy Kisses (US 6th, 7th and 8th, World 32nd, 33rd and 34th).
A relatively quiet day as we only saw two guilds finish up the raid, my old alma mater, Nihilum, and Innominatum - also strangely connected through their latin names. World 30th and 31st!
More finishers and more news from the Asia servers. Starting off with the EU though, as Millenium grabbed the World 25th, EU 18th on Xavius, closely followed by Korean guild Right who grabbed the 26th and Asia 3rd 7/7. We also saw the Asia top 5 completed soon after, as both PanGu and Alpha took that short last step from Cenarius to Xavius. Congrats to all the 28 guilds that have so far finished the Emerald Nightmare!
And we have two more done! Impact and Embody claim two more spots for the EU as they down Xavius World 23rd and 24th, EU 16th adn 17th!
Style War crosses the finish line as the second guild in Asia, closely after Allstar. Xavius down, 7/7 and World 22nd!
Honestly is the next across the finish line, downing Xavius US/OC 5th, World 21st in the process!
And we have a top 20!
But the big news is that Allstar have claimed the Asia first and finished up the raid! 7/7 with Xavius down World 17th and their closest competition, Style War, only very recently downed Cenarius. We also saw a couple more guilds finish up Emerald Nightmare, with Easy claiming the US 4th and W18th, followed by Fusion (Фьюжн) and NollTvåTre. Gz to everyone!
Asia First, World 17th Xavius Mythic by Allstar:
And Prime are the next to be done with the Emerald Nightmare and down Xavius as World 16th, EU 13th. 7/7 and we're almost at the top 20!
We've got a kill in the US for the first time this evening; Easy has taken down Cenarius to hold on to 4US/W17. We should see a Xavius kill from them tonight, Easily (heh, sorry).
It would appear that Exorsus' Xavius World First video is around an hour away, and as an added bonus we found out it was made by the same guy that did their amazing Siegemaster Blackfuse video! Countdown starting!
It would appear that Allstar have gone and gotten the Asia first on Cenarius, 6/7 and, although it's unconfirmed, we do know they had it at a pretty low % a while ago so it seems very likely that they did get it. We'll just note it as a kill and let you know if anything changes. So for now, gz to Allstar and they're well on their way to finishing EN as Asia first as well since Xavius seems to take around 10-15 tries.
It's been a bit slow in the last few hours in terms of new updates or boss kills, but we do have Prime EU-Tarren Mill dropping Cenarius (EU13) and holding at the W16 position.
Set Sail For Fail (7/7M) has also made their combat logs public, you can check them out here.
US raiding is expected to start up again in the next 3-4 hours, and two positions remain in the Top 5 (US). With 7 guilds currently at 5/7M, it's really anybody's guess at who will get over the Cenarius hump. Several guilds have now posted their Cenarius kill video, whether any of the 5/7 teams choose to draw inspiration from these videos or stick to their own strategies remains to be seen. From my perspective, the most likely to move on to Xavius tonight is going to be SNF or Easy, but don't count out Strawberry Puppy Kisses or WHATEVER WERE AWESOME. Wipe statistics have consistently shown that Cenarius is by far the more difficult encounter right now, compared to Xavius - we're seeing most guilds only need 2-3 hours worth of work to down Xavius compared to 3-4x that for Cenarius in some cases.
Here's a look at the current total Boss Kill Count Updated 4:12PM EDT (US)
Another Xavius bites the dust as Prestige Gaming finish off Emerald Nightmare and are the World 15th, EU 12th guild to get to 7/7!
More Xavius kills seem to be happening by the hour, as Nova is the latest to join the all done crowd. They got to 7/7 World 14th, EU11th.
Entropy gets the US 3rd, World 13th 7/7 and Xavius dead. Gz!
Good morning from North America, if you're just waking up here's a review of what we've seen in the last few hours.
Pieces (EU-Draenor) just brought down Xavius to claim W12. Currently 3 teams are sitting at 6/7(M): Nova (EU), Prestige Gaming (EU) and Entropy (OC). Due to the current local time for those teams, it's likely we could see those Xavius kills come through in the next few hours before NA teams begin their raids tonight.
Limit and Midwinter finally got the US/NA on the 7/7(M) list with their Xavius kills last night, landing them the 10th and 11th spots, respectively.
Catching up on statistics, here's the current kill count for Mythic Emerald Nightmare bosses; Updated 9:50AM EDT (US)
Looking at Average Item Level, the list is dominated by EU guilds.
And breaking it down by region, we can see the top iLVLs by character as well - always interesting to note the classes that are missing from the list and compare those to how Top Guilds have been stacking classes. Despite Shadow Priests being a core part of most 7/7M raid teams, we don't see any on either the EU or NA list (the curse of Shadow Priests continues).
Enjoy your weekend, and we will continue to be here updating the race until the Top 20 has been finalized. Happy raiding!

Not much happening recently, but we did get a US/OC, World 14th third on Cenarius as OC guild Entropy moved on to the final boss and 6/7, and EU guild Prestige Gaming soon followed them up there for the EU 12th, W15th.
Midwinter cross the finish line as well, as Xavius falls an 11th time. US 2nd, 7/7!
And we have a US 2nd on Cenarius as Midwinter move to 6/7 and are very close to finishing the raid out.
After the top 10 finished we now have two more contenders for the next available spot: Pieces and Nova have crossed the Cenarius threshold and are now neck and neck on Xavius.
And we have two across the finish line, with ScrubBusters getting the edge and the World 9th, and Limit once again getting that US first and World 10th! Congrats to both guilds on the Xavius kill and 7/7.
The top 10 is done!
US first, World 10th Xavius Mythic by Limit:
It's FatSharkYes! They manage to make use of their slight lead over Limit and finish off the raid World 8th. Xavius down and 7/7. Congrats!
Our old friends ScrubBusters join the 6/7 club and may just be in contention for that World 8th Xavius with Limit and FatSharkYes. Cenarius down World 10th, EU 9th.
US First, World 10th Xavius Mythic by Limit:
Limit grab the US first on Cenarius, moving to 6/7 and now the race is on between them and FatSharkYes for the World 8th Xavius and 7/7!
One of my favorite guilds based on name, FatSharkYes is the next to sign up for the Xavius easy-kill express, downing Cenarius World 8th.
We have a World 7th! Openness (Открытость) down Xavius and go to 7/7, cleaning the Nightmare making it 7 EU guilds at the top.
set sail for fail! Xavius falls once again as we get our World 6th 7/7. Huge congrats to the guild who've been around a long time, well deserved
So far all six Xavius slayers have been from the EU, as well as the only guild currently on 6/7.
And we finally get another Cenarius kill and the first guild of the now 24 strong 5/7 group breaks through to Xavius. Russian guild Openness (Открытость) grabs the World 6th on the fallen demi-god and are now the favorites to finish the race in 6th place as well!
5 Asian guilds now past Il'gynoth - Alpha, Allstar, AFK R, PanGu, Style War - and in direct contention for those top 10 spots, also making it a whopping 32 guilds now on Cenarius with the World 6th coming from any of them.
�A little late as I forgot to post it before going to bed, here's the wipe count on the bosses from some of the top guilds. You should keep in mind that wipe counts aren't really indicative of much, just fun stats to look over, as some guilds like to do many faster pulls to get more info, while others prefer fewer pulls and take their time strategizing between them. It's just a question of style basically and the amount of gear each guild had on any given boss. And remember, the top 3 guilds all killed Xavius within pretty much the same amount of time after the Cenarius kill .
Well, I'm a little disappointed there were no US Cenarius kills overnight, but huge gz to Danish Terrace from myself as well.
Not a lot of action on the Asia server either but, as expected, Alpha did clear up Dragons after their Il'gynoth Asia first, just missing out to the A5th spot to Korean guild AFK R, and are now working on Cenarius, while others are still a little stuck on the eye. As usual huge thanks to @andyice_77 and the crew on the NGA BBS for keeping us up to date on the Asian scene.
The lads from Denmark pushed through exhaustion and Danish Terrace has landed the final spot in the Top 5 World, bringing down Xavius(M)
just moments ago. In the words of DT raider Falken on Twitter, "The (very sleepy) Danes finally had a pull with
everyone awake - and we went 7/7
Looking at Average Item level, Method currently is on top with 870.51 - however Prime is nipping at their heels with less than .10 difference at 870.43. Is EU-Tarren Mill extra lucky, boys? On the NA side, Midwinter (869.86) has over a full point lead on the next highest team, Easy (868.64).
With the current hold up of 18 Guilds at 5/7(M), every tenth of a point can make a difference when it comes to getting Cenarius down.
Image/data courtesy of wowprogress
On the NA side of the pond, Strawberry Puppy Kisses has downed Il'gynoth(M) and joins the logjam of 18 other guilds now sitting at 5/7(M). It's now been over 24 hours since Midwinter, Limit, and Easy took down Il'gynoth - who will be the first to get over the hump and put Cenarius out of his misery?
We've got action once again, folks! Danish Terrace has downed Cenarius 6/7(M) - leaving only Xavius as their final challenge. It's nearly 2am in Europe - will they stay awake and try to grab the kill and the coveted last spot in the Top 5?
It seems the 4/7s have been busy and a bunch of them came up to 5/7 while we weren't looking! Embody, Fusion, Prestige Gaming and set sail for fail have all downed Il'gynoth the eye/heart/kidney of corruption and positioned themselves to compete for the World 5th on Cenarius, which has now become the top spot available in the race. With 13 guilds in place to fight for it it's going to be a rough one!
Method also released not one, but five of their kill videos, obviously not Cenarius or Xavius though, and you can check them out on their youtube page. Meanwhile here's one to warm you up:
In the midst of video madness From Scratch have gone ahead and finished the Emerald Nightmare! World 4th on Xavius, 7/7 and congratulations!
Serenity is done! They've defeated Xavius, climbed to 7/7, claimed the World third and are leaving the Nightmare behind. Again, very close to Exorsus and Method, it took them under two hours to down the final boss after Cenarius so we can comfortably say that Xav was weak. In any case, congratulations!
From Scratch catch up to Serenity and down Cenarius World 4th. 6/7 and now the race to Xavius is on between the two EU guilds!
Serenity are back to killing bosses as they down Cenarius World 3rd. They are now alone on 6/7 and heading for that Xavius third as well.
We have another Asia first, this time it's a big one, with Alpha downing Il'gynoth, but not quite joining up with the big group on 5/7 because they went ahead and skipped Dragons for now. They're at 4/7 with the other four Asian guilds and since Dragons should be easier for them than the eye we should expect a kill shortly and our first Asian 5/7.
We now have four Asian guilds on 4/7, as the previously mentioned Allstar and Style War were recently joined by YiBoLiu and ShadowCream.
If you're just waking up in the US, here's a brief recap of what you may have missed along with the current (total) boss kill count (unfortunately excluding Chinese guilds).
- Exorsus (EU) took the World 1st Xavius(M) kill, only 17 hours after downing Nythendra(M)
- Both US guilds and EU guilds have experienced a bug where they could not proceed to Cenarius due to bugged portals. Blizzard was able to provide assistance multiple times, however we can assume that a hotfix has not yet but applied to servers due to the issue repeating itself
- US Guilds Midwinter, Limit, SNF and Easy + Oceanic Guild Entropy progressed from 4/7(M) to 5/7(M) overnight
- Updated 16:42 CEST Method (EU) landed the W2 Xavius 7/7(M)
- AFK R from the Korean servers are on 2/7(M) and Style War got the Asia 2nd on Dragons
- Social media was buzzing after the WF kill was announced - many fans expressed excitement for Exorsus, but disappointment in the lack of longevity to this race
Kill count updated 17:07 CEST
|Boss||Number of kills|
|Dragons of Nightmare(M)||26|
Method have broken through that Cenarius obstacle and gotten the World 2nd. They're on 6/7 and now we'll see if Xavius really is that easy or if Exorsus were just in another league. We should expect a kill within the next 2 hours if the Russian's progress is anything to go by.
World second Cenarius Mythic by Method:
Another Asia first as Allstar down Dragons of Nightmare and move to 4/7, getting close to the top US and EU guilds now!
It seems US customer support is quite a bit faster than EU as both Method and From Scratch are stuck on the same Cenarius portal bug that was troubling Limit and Midwinter, but where it took 10-20 minutes to fix in the US, Method have been locked out for around an hour. The problem is fixed now, however.
Pieces finally got updated on Wowprog, so as promised let's put them in their rightful place. They got World and EU 6th Il'gynoth, bumping all the US guilds down a peg. 5/7.
Entropy just grabbed a quick US/OC 5th, World 11th on Il'gynoth and are at the usual 5/7.
We have some updated Asian action on the early bosses, as @andyice and the NGA BBS give us the lowdown on the rankings. It's all Chinese guilds so far, and
as mentioned before ShadowCream got the first kill on Elerethe, but it seems YiBoLiu managed to beat them to Nythendra. ShadowCram then move to the no.2 spot on Nyth, followed by Allstar, Alpha, and PanGu. For
Elerethe it's ShadowCream, Allstar, Alpha, PanGu and then Style War.
Ursoc was also visited by a few more friends as Allstar, Style War, PanGu and ShadowCream got the 2nd, 3rd , 4th and 5th on the bear.
It took the Asian guilds a while to get into the Nightmare but now that they're in they're going full speed ahead. It seems a new player has taken the first two Asia firsts, on Nythendra and Elerethe: ShadowCream from the
Chinese servers. Two bosses down in around an hour and they're closely followed by Allstar, Style War, Yiboliu and KeaHoarl.
Meanwhile Alpha just raced ahead of all of them and grabbed the Asia first on Ursoc.
We'll be getting more exact standings a little later, but a huge thanks to @andyice_77 for keeping us updated on the Asian scene! And if you're unsure of who exactly these guilds are, you can check out the pre-race intro article where Andyice explained it all.
And here we have some words from Exorsus themselves, namely the GM Alveona:
Talking about Xavius - it's not bugged or something like that, however Mythic abilities and tuning overall is pretty easy. To be honest on 1% we've were just expecting some "Hidden phase" (we've datamined a lot of abilities), however he simply died. Cenarius, on the other hand, was a really tight and cool fight. Overall we've put enormous efforts in preparations for this content (~1 month), so we're obviously very happy with getting world 1st in EN.
As we wait for Exorsus' killshot, I thought I'd talk a little about this Mythic adventure.
First of all, let me start by again congratulating Exorsus on their domination of the Emerald Nightmare, they did a great job and really had nothing to do with how it turned out, they were just doing the best they could and, well, their best was TOO good.
Now. I mentioned my fear of Emerald Nightmare Mythic being a short one in my intro article to the race, but I was mostly referring to Xavius staying alive until the second reset, not the second DAY of progress. To be fair, it's very difficult to tune bosses when there's such a huge potential difference in item levels between the very top guilds and the rest, due to legendary farming and random 895 Titanforged procs, but really Blizzard? One day? If we count from the moment Exorsus stepped into the raid it wasn't even a full day, it was 18 hours.
Now I'm going under the assumption that this wasn't intended and that Blizzard expected Xavius to last longer, certainly he should have been more difficult that the previous boss, Cenarius. With everything in Legion being
SO good and having revitalized the game for a lot of players, myself included, this very unceremonious end to the expansion's premiere raid seems very out of place. Sure, we expected 5 bosses to probably die on the first day,
most raids are almost exclusively about the endboss these days, even when Cenarius died I wasn't that worried about the race. But this is, well, it's unprecedented for one. THE shortest living endboss for a raid was
well it was Kel'thuzad in WotLK Naxx, considered one of the easiest and most throwaway raids of all time, and even he lived for 3 days. Without any hard or mythic modes, he still lived longer than Xavius. The next
shortest isn't far off, but it was also one of three raids released in the first tier - Mogu'shan Vaults and it lasted 4 days. And if we REALLY want to get into it, Xavius was alive for 2 and a half hours. Hours.
So after that history lesson and I've calmed down a little, I guess it's not all that bad. It was a nice, short, pocket-sized, mini introduction raid to Legion, and we actually have two more of them coming up pretty soon, so this may not be as big a deal as I'm making it out to be. It was a great test for our own progress coverage and site, it showed us a LOT of you are still interested in the race and we've seen ways to improve. So if we look at the Emerald Nightmare Mythic that way, I suppose it wasn't all that bad.
As my rage boils, we have another US kill on Il'gynoth. This time it's SNF grabbing the Us 4th and apparently Pieces had killed it way back, perhaps even before Limit, but Wowprog hasn't updated yet so we'll keep you posted when that pops up as well.
So, very soon I might rant a bit about the Emerald Nightmare Mythic's "duration", but first Easy have gotten the US third on Il'gynoth and climbed to 5/7.
It's Exorsus! World First Xavius and 7/7! It seems staying up late has paid off for the Russian guild, but it also seems Blizzard completely messed up with tuning the final boss of the Nightmare, who was easier than Cenarius according to Exorsus themselves.
Two more in the now very large 4/7 group with ScrubBusters and Openness poking those Dragons in the eye. No not THAT eye. They're in 15th an 16th overall spots, respectively.
Danish Terrace are the latest Dragonsslayers and move up tp 4/7 to join the large pack of 11 guilds with three to go to end the Nightmare. EU 8th.
Method are the next ones to bring the eye of corruption or heart or whatever it really is down, World 3rd on Il'gynoth and now they're off to chase Exorsus and From Scratch on Cenarius!
Pieces move up in the rankings, to 4/7 to be exact and are the 12th guild in the world, 6th in EU to down Dragons of Nightmare. Millenium also moved up, to 3/7 by downing Ursoc EU 8th.
Another lull and a breather for me, but idle hands and all that so let's find out about some lower tier action! Following Honestly's 3/7 that we already mentioned we have two new guilds with three bosses down, namely Russian guild Fusion, who we remember from the Heroic race coverage, and Pieces.
Further down the line there are now 26 guilds that have gotten past at least two bosses, with Dawn and Danish terrace being the latest additions to the group with DNO Gaming and Exiled Legion sitting at the top of the 2/7 pile. 12 guilds that are actually ON 2/7.
The at least 1/7 crowd is 90 strong, so Nythendra is not having a good few days, but she was dead to begin with so I'm not sure how much of a change being double dead is going to be, all she did was lay around in the foyer with bugs and oozes all around anyway. 74 guilds that are "only" on 1/7.
In any case a big congratulations to all guilds that downed any boss in the Emerald Nightmare Mythic and, hell, GZ to all of those still trying to re-deaden Nyth as well!
In all this World First crazyness another Russian guild also grabbed a kill, with Prestige Gaming joining the now second group of guilds that are on 4/7, getting the Dragons of Nightmare Eu 5th. Honestly also moved up a while ago, to 3/7 with the US 12th on Elerethe.
It's Exorsus! World First on Il'gynoth and 5/7! The Russians show us that consistency and stability are huge assets and pull ahead in the race by what appears to be a significant margin. With only Cenarius and Xavius left for them, now it's time to see how the other guilds react.
World First Il'gynoth, the Heart of Corruption Mythic by Exorsus:
So, it seems Prestige Gaming has been going strong and racked up three kills, including two EU 5ths on the first two bosses and a EU 4th on Ursoc, getting them into the 10th overall spot!
Also we'd like to apologize for the current slowness of the site, there are really MANY more of you than we expected, but we're working to find a solution, so thanks for coming here in such big numbers!
It's getting hectic in the EU as another guild gets past Dragons of Nightmare! Serenity bump up to the top group with 4/7.
From Scratch are going strong early in the race as they tie up with the top 6 on 4/7, getting EU 2nd, World 7th on Dragons!
Method takes down Ursoc, within moments of Serenity taking down Elerethre - putting both teams at 3/7.
On the OC side of the race we had the first guild with Entropy kill Ursoc about an hour ago. World 6th, 3/7.
Method joins the race! EU 6th Nythendra - 1/7.
Serenity killed Nythendra - EU 5th. 1/7.
EU 4th Nythendra kill by Embody - 1/7.
Exorsus takes the EU 1st kill of Dragons of Nightmare and is now at 4/7. Meanwhile Открытость downed Nythendra and Elerethe Renferal EU 3rd respectively.
Exorsus catches up by killing Ursoc EU 2nd / World 7th and is now at 3/7.
And we have a EU 1st / World 6th Ursoc kill by From Scratch. They are now at 3/7.
From Scratch downed Elerethe Renferal as EU 1st.
Nythendra has been downed by Exorsus and From Scratch in the EU, possibly by a couple of other guilds. We are still waiting to see the respective position of these kills.
The EU race has started and seems like most US guilds have stopped. The latest US kill was by Strawberry Puppy Kisses with a World 5th Dragons of Nightmare.
Easy join the very top on 4/7 with their World 4th Dragons of Nightmare kill! Midwinter, Limit, SNF and now Easy ruling the roost and banging their heads against an undefeated Il'gynoth, waiting to see how the EU guilds do.
After a bit of a lull we have a second guild on 2/7, with exiled Legion downing Elerethe World 7th and 19 guilds have now broken that first boss barrier so far.
We've added the killshots to the image on top. When the videos start coming in we'll either replace them or add another icon, depending on if it gets a bit too spammy on the image.
Strawberry Puppy Kisses are on a roll as they claim their second World 5h, this time on Ursoc and go 3/7! We are also up to 15 guilds with at least one boss down.
And we have our first change in rank of the race! Armory just remembered that DNO Gaming actually got Nythendra before Strawberry Puppy kisses for the W5th AND that just downed Elerethe World 6th as well to get to 2/7. There might be more of these coming up so we'll just save those for a single bigger update, unless thery're at the very top. It also means we now have 12 guilds past the first boss, as Laid Back have also downed Nythendra.
So it seems it was armory that flared up with many guilds now popping up in the rankings, allowing us to say that the top 10 on the first boss of Emerald Nightmare and the first raid of Legion is done! Exiled Legion, Razzia, Emphasis and Mind Games round out the coveted first ten past 1/7, but that's not all! Strawberry Puppy Kisses also moved up to 2/7 by downing the usual 2/7 suspect, Elerethe Renferal World 5th.
Now we're getting somewhere. It seems a lot more guilds have been trying Nythendra (or armory has just started updating) as the influx of parties in the Emerald pary has grown quite a lot in the last hour or so. Joining SPK and Reckoning are Exiled Legion in their little Nythendra free corner of the Nightmare. Don't forget that techincally any of these guilds can nab the World First on Dr. Il'gynoth directly after Nythendra.
Easy are back after a short stint in Heroics and they've taken out the bear! World 4th on Ursoc, tied up with SNF on 3/7.
Reckoning! We now have 6 guilds deep in the Nightmare. And by deep I mean at least with one boss down. Nythendra (NOT Nythendera as I've been writing for half the updates here) has fallen yet again and Reckoning claim the World and US/OC 6th kill, 1/7.
Another player enters! Strawberry Puppy Kisses is the next to join the undead dragon lady slaying club and earn themselves a 1/7 in the Emerald Nightmare Mythic, grabbing the World 5th on the way. We hope to see more friends joining in soon!
An exciting dozen minutes or so as we get another high ranked kill, this time a little bit more unexpected with SNF taking the World 2nd on Ursoc ahead of Limit who are hot on their heels getting the same boss down probably only a couple of minutes later for the World third.
World second Mythic Ursoc killshot by SNF:
And Limit are on a roll! 2/7 with the usual progress path of Elerethe second, World 4th again for the presumptive US favorite, after they did some Heroic split raids when the reset started. Click here for the pretty cool killshot.
Limit have also broken through the first boss and put a point on the scoreboard. World 4th on Nythendra, 1/7.
We finally have a third member of this race show up, with SNF entering the ex-Emerald Dream and downing both the undead dragon lady and the spider-bird! 2/7 and World third for SNF on Nythendra and Elerethe Renferal, gz to them.
Limit just poked their head out on twitter to share this, so we're going to see those tables start filling up soon and Midwinter and Easy better watch their backs!
And around 10 seconds after I announced I was making food a kill happened. Midwinter went for Elerethe as well and downed her for the World second, 2/7. Rumor has it that she wasn't exactly in a satisfactory place, difficulty-wise, so she got significantly buffed after the World First kill.
And here are the killshots:
Edit: Now confirmed with armory and added killshot.
Now we're cooking as we're up to 2/7 already with Easy moving ahead in the Emerald Nightmare and downing Elerethe Renferal for another World First! This is still unconfirmed but it seems Vapour in the comments is a trusty source for now, will verify here when the armory updates.
What is confirmed is that Midwinter have now also downed Nythendra for the World and US/OC second. 1/7 and they're on their way.
Easy Elerethe Renferal World First killshot:
