There seems to be some issues with recent VoDs on Twitch so the recent Limit videos aren't available. Hopefully it'll be sorted out soon.

In any case, here's Supreme's Warlock PoV for the 52% pull:

The wipe count on Za'qul sits at 166 for Method, with Limit taking 185 to down the tentacled one. Keep in mind pull counts aren't the best at determining exact time spent on the boss, but it's still fun to look at stats anyway.

Now that Za'qul has finally been defeated in the EU we get to see two perspectives on Queen Azshara, and we get to see Method's plans, strats and comps for the fight!

The pull count is getting up there already on Azshara, mainly due to the pulls themselves being comparatively short, but Limit are already at 54 pulls, and have gotten the boss down to 77.4%!

Going back a bit, I seem to have missed Method's WF Queen's Court video release, in which we get to see the multi-pov aspect of the fight. We've also updated the kill video list with Limit's Orgozoa and Za'qul kills, but they're from Max's stream and are muted due to the music.

Limit keep going on Queen Azshara and they've just had the best try around 86%, with all 20 alive for phase 2 and the arrival of her majesty herself:

Method will be done with their splits soon and may go for a few Za'qul pulls before heading off to bed it seems, so it's pretty unlikely we see a World 2nd from them today. Pieces managed to get 0.5% closer to that Za'kill at 36% and FatSharkYes, the 0.2% boys, are already at 40% on the Harbinger of Ny'alotha!

We also had another Orgozoa kill, with Halcyon as EU 7th.

Back to Za'qul progress for a second, Method still haven't gone back to Mythic and are still on their 27% try from yesterday, while Pieces stand at 36.5%, JTH are on 35.8%, and Aversion on 38.6! It seems the 35-40% mark is very specific as they're all bunched up around there, and who knows, we may actually see a non-Method World 2nd!

Since we've been talking about low % wipes, while Limit's definitely takes the cake on overall impact, FatSharkYes actually had the second worst possible wipe ever, as they wiped at 0.2% on Queen's Court!

UPDATE - 20th July, 2019, 6:25 pm (GMT) By Starym

Let's not forget, as exciting as it's getting at the moment, these guilds are entirely focused on Azshara and nothing else. While Za'qul is in the way at the moment, getting the proper rest and having raiders comfortable and raid ready is much more important than even the 7/8 World First. The big picture is really all that matters so spending 8 hours doing splits or resting a little longer is currently insignificant as no one is progressing on Azshara, which is when the real "time wasted" issue begins, as learning strats, comps and execution on the final boss is when every minute counts.

minor
UPDATE - 20th July, 2019, 6:00 pm (GMT) By Starym
none none

Pieces and even Aversion are also now pretty much caught up with Method, as their best tries are at 36.5 and 38.6%, however we know Pieces farmed a whole lot of Mythic+ back before Lady Ashvane so their gear situation could be solidly better than Method and Aversion's, at least before Method's splits.

minor
UPDATE - 20th July, 2019, 5:52 pm (GMT) By Starym

While we did get a whole lot of non-Za'qul progress happening in the past 8 or so hours, it seems my own sleep break didn't make me miss anything huge, as Limit just returned from their rest yet and Method have been farming gear all his time, with Heroic splits finally on the menu! Since Limit are back a kill could be coming very soon!

It seems Za'qul isn't quite the pushover the Court was, as Method are still at their previous 39.9% best try, while Limit have gotten to 51.7%! With only two bosses left, let's hope this penultimate one survives a bit longer so we're not doomed to watch the same Azshara pulls for weeks!

Let's take a look at Za'qul and Method's best, 39.9% try, with a strat they're using that some seem to think will get hotifxed, but it's really interesting and showcases thinking outside the box. Namely when the delirium phase starts and all players are hostile to each other, Method are using mages to polymorph other players to heal them up (since healer's can't do their job due to being hostile to everyone else) and then breaking the poly with a low damage spell! Let's take a look and the lag at the end is on the video side, so don't go hitting your router (not that I have, honest):

It's really great seeing this level of competition and this amount of back and forth between two top guilds, it's been a while since our progress image has had some many alternating guild logos on it, so I have to say Eternal Palace is definitely my favorite race of BfA so far. The Queen's Court may be quit a bit undertuned, but considering Ashvane and Orgozoa were just right we can let that one slide, as long as Za'qul doesn't usher in Ny'alotha too quickly.

The Asian region have come up, and a bunch of guilds have caught up, and gotten 3/8 and now sit on Lady Ashvane. As always it's hard to know exactly what guilds from the Asian region are doing well, but at least Alpha and Skyline have reached her.

It seems the Queen's Court isn't quite on the level of Ashvane and Orgozoa, as Limit is already down to 45% after only an hour of progress on the boss. It may get more difficult on lower percentages, but so far, we may be on to the final two bosses sooner than anticipated.

Asia guilds have been busy progressing through the Palace and the top have reached Lady Ashvane, with Skyline going Method's way and pushing on the boss while Alpha and JTH moved away from her to farm up some gear first.

Limit has been pushing a little bit more on Orgozoa before their recent food break and managed to get the boss sub-40%, just barely, with their best try so far at 39.1%!

minor
UPDATE - 18th July, 2019, 12:52 am (GMT) By Starym

And so the day has ended around 50% Orgozoa, with limit actually getting under the half way mark at 47%. Method's pull count landed on 32 - it took 37 pulls to down Lady Ashvane, so it's safe to say the difficulty is still ramping up in the Eternal Palace, from an already pretty impressive fourth boss. Considering how disappointing previous raids have been (Crucible notwithstanding) it's really great to see an actual progression curve this time around, and even if bosses 6 or 7 don't live up to previous ones difficulty, the raid has already been impressive enough, and we can only imagine what Azshara will be like. So, for now, a big GJ to the encounter devs!

We have 75 guilds that have broken that 1/8 barrier and taken down Abyssal Commander Sivara only, 48 with an additional kill on either Radiance or Behemoth (with the big fish seeming to be the favorite), a whopping 141 having gotten all three down and progressing on Lady Ashvane, with only Method and Limit having been able to push to that 4/8.

Method has pushed to 21.7% as their best try very recently and here's the clip:

minor
UPDATE - 17th July, 2019, 5:34 pm (GMT) By Starym

So, day 2 has progressed and we're seeing the different approaches to Lady Ashvane already, as Pieces welt the Limit route and have been farming Mythic+ to get some gear, as they felt M+ was a better gear to time spent ratio for them, Limit has returned and immediately resumed their Heroic splits, while Method are still going at the boss, with Cayna saying that they feel they can get the kill with their current gear with some lucky RNG.

Just to get a general idea of progress on Lady Ashvane, Limit have her to 27% with the shield at 20%, and they've been doing splits for a long time now. The EU guilds will be entering the raid in an hour and a half so we'll see if they will have more luck with the fourth boss, as Pieces and Method clash today.

minor
UPDATE - 17th July, 2019, 4:17 am (GMT) By Starym

As the US raid times have marched on we're getting a whole lot more kills, as 28 guilds now stand on 3/8. The top has gone for some splits as Lady Ashvane has proved her worth to Azshara by stopping any and all from moving past her, and it's looking likely that the fourth boss of the Eternal Palace will make it through the first day alive!

minor
UPDATE - 16th July, 2019, 8:58 pm (GMT) By Starym
none none

While things are quiet, let's take a moment to compare current boss progress to previous ones. While Crucible isn't really going to be useful here, Dazar'alor will, and that was one of the faster raids to make it to the final boss.

The first three bosses were pretty much the same, and Big Dumb Guild even got to the 3/8 first in Dazar'alor as well, some 20 minutes slower than Radiance went down. The interesting part lies at the fourth boss, which died 2 hours after the third in Dazar'alor. This time around it's already been 4 hours since the third boss kill by both BDG and Limit, so we can say Ashvane is at least twice as hard as Opulence was. Now it could just be a matter of that one specific boss being difficult with the next few less so, but Eternal Palace has already proven to be at least a bit more difficult than Battle of Dazar'alor. With Uu'nat's difficulty back in Crucible, it all seems very promising for this race, as we should get to see a really good one where all guilds will have a chance at that World First on Azshara, regardless of reset times - well, at least hopefully, as the earlier extra gear on resets will still give an advantage to US and then EU guilds, but we'll discuss that when we get to it.

minor
UPDATE - 16th July, 2019, 8:08 pm (GMT) By Starym

The race has calmed a little as Ashvane seems to be a bit of an obstacle and a large step up in difficulty from the first three bosses, which bodes well for the rest of the raid.

We also got some hotfixes today, with these raid changes, including changes to the Azshara encounter:

Azshara’s Eternal Palace

  • Orgozoa
    • Orgozoa now transitions to phase two at 40% health (was 3.5 minutes).
      • Developers’ note: This change is meant to be neutral with regard to difficulty of the encounter, and aims to ensure that as player damage output continues to increase in the coming weeks, the overall pacing of the encounter doesn’t become skewed.
  • Radiance of Azshara
    • Fixed a bug causing Radiance of Azshara's Stormwraith Gale Buffet to increase its damage by 10% per stack, rather than the intended 25% on Normal and Heroic difficulties.
  • Za’Qul, Harbinger of Ny’alotha
  • Queen Azshara
    • Players with the Beckoned debuff can no longer be afflicted with Charged Spear.
    • Players broken out of Devotion should not be prevented from using their abilities.

A bit of a changeup as it seems Nerd Crew actually got Radiance of Azshara down World 3rd, bumping everyone else down one. They're on 2/8 with Sivara and Radiance down.

Now that we have a few seconds to breathe between updates, while it may seem the first three bosses went down rather fast, we only really need that final 3 to be difficult, at least to the point where some of them to survive the first few days. In Battle of Dazar'alor it was very disappointing to see Jaina be the only one left standing so early on, and especially with the streaming aspect of it, it removed a huge portion of variety for the race (there's only so many days you can watch the same fight over and over).

Blood Legion also go the Blackwater Behemoth route and join BDG and Vision on Sivara + Behemoth, while Limit's 2/8 stands at Sivara + Radiance.

We seem to have 31 guilds at 7/8 Heroic but no Azshara kills so far. Recent hotfixes announced that her transition into the final phase was fixed, but that was probably done quite a while ago, so it's unclear if guilds are actually having trouble downing her or if it's just the usual issue of kills not getting registered.

We have 7 bosses down already on Heroic difficulty (or well, probably more, but the updates are always slow), and we know that Blackwater are progression on Azshara, with Limit, Dark paradise and The Early Shift on 6/8. This info is courtesy of WarcraftLogs, since they're currently the only ones tracking Heroic progress!
