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!

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'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)

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). 

EU:

US:

Enjoy your weekend, and we will continue to be here updating the race until the Top 20 has been finalized. Happy raiding!

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 @ and the crew on the NGA BBS for keeping us up to date on the Asian scene.

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!

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.

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
Nythendra(M) 399
Elerethre Renferal(M) 115
ll'gynoth(M) 12

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.

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.

minor
UPDATE - 29th September, 2016, 5:22 am (GMT) By starym

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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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!
