A little update on Alpha and their search for that World 2nd on Kil'jaeden: they've wiped 784 times on him so far and their best try was at only 58%!

After the weird coincidence of Kil'jaeden falling on the exact same day as Archimonde did 2 years earlier, I though I'd look through the history of raid progress every now and then to see if anything interesting happened on this day. Well, it's 1AM in Europe, so it's the 19th, and what else do we have that happened on the 19th of July?

Why, it's Paragon's Ragnaros Heroic World First from Firelands and Cataclysm! The boss died on the very last day of the second reset, almost making it to the vaunted 3rd reset, but he just missed it and so Al'akir remained the youngest boss to have lived beyond week 2. Until Archimonde dethroned him and then Kil'jaeden after that. Rag v2.0 also lived for 11 days after the penultimate boss, Majordomo Staghelm, was first defeated, compared to the 12 days KJ lived after Avatar's demise.

And so the WF for ToS has been decided, congratulations to Method for sticking it out with KJ all this time! Now it's time to see who can claim that silver, if it'll be one of the Asian guilds like Alpha or Style War, or if Exorsus, despite their reduced raiding hours, will hold on to that 2nd spot. One big thing that Method's WF did is that is showed all the other guilds that the boss is actually killable, and the Raider.io raid setup (if it's not messed with through logouts etc like Exorsus did on Gul'dan with that low ilev Paladin) should help as well.

So, Method won as expected, but place your bets for the silver and bronze!

Another dawn Kil'jaeden (who is Archimonde's equal, and not lower than him in the Burning Legion food chain, as has been painstakingly pointed out to me in various places) gets to see, and gets ever closer to that fourth reset, today let's take a look at how far other guilds have progressed into ToS.

The numbers here will be somewhat approximated, as Wowprogress doesn't keep track of Chinese guilds (despite the fact that they weirdly did manually add Alpha and Style War, but not KeaHoarl and Stars Gaming).

We already know there are 11 guilds on 8/9 and progressing on KJ, so, let's start with Maiden of Vigilance and Mistress Sassz'ine:
At least 42 guilds have gotten past the vigilant one and are currently progressing on Fallen Avatar: 29 EU, 11 US/OC and 2 Korean.
There are actually fewer guilds that got past only the naga lady than the tall lady, as only 32 guilds sit at 6/9:  21 EU, 10 US/OC and 1 Korean.

The rest we'll just round up more quickly: 339 on 5/9, 272 on 4/9, 774 on 3/9, 343 on 2/9 and 717 with only poor Goroth down!

Edit: It seems there may have been some kills on avatar from Chinese guilds before FatShark got to him, so we'll see if we can get the exact details there and keep you updated.

It's reset day for the EU and the top 2 guilds, as they re-clear to Kil'jaeden and have a much better shot at him with another week's worth of gear. The Asian guilds haven't had their reset yet so Alpha and Style War get to play with big red a bit more.

Kil'jaeden has to live one more day to outlast our previous 3 reset champion, his direct superior in the Burning Legion (before he died anyway) Archimonde from Hellfire Citadel back in WoD.  For future comparison, here's the wipe count for Archi: Method 472, Paragon 675, Exorsus 749. I feel pretty sure that the count for KJ will be significantly higher, in fact it's probably higher already! And if you're the historian type like me, the other boss to have lived past 2 resets before Archimonde, if we don't count limited attempt boss Ra-Den, was way back at the beginning of Cataclysm, namely Al'akir in the Throne of the Four Winds, taken down by Paragon!

  • [With realm restarts in each region] On Mythic difficulty, 5 Shadowy Blades now spawn (was 7).

If you want to know what utter disappointment looks like, it seems Alpha have just the clip for you. After around 750 wipes on Avatar they managed to get him down to 0.1%. And then...

At the end those would be the very definition of anti-nerdscreams. As someone that's been in situations like the above plenty of times, I can tell you there really isn't a worse feeling in the game. And it just keeps getting worse and worse for every attempt after it that you don't kill the boss. In any case, good luck to Alpha, as that World 3rd is looking more and more likely!

With the reclears well on their way in Europe and across the pond in the Americas, it seems like most guilds have hit quite an unexpected new wall. With the reset Blizzard have done some small changes to the Miss Sassz'ine encounter. You can no longer handle the beams by simply letting your Blood DKs taking the full hit, as it now stuns no matter what sort of immunities you have up, it also stuns for a far longer duration.

Let's see how long it takes and what guild manage to figure out a good way to handle this encounter, so that they may continue their progress on the latter bosses with their new and improved gear!

With EU re-clear day well on the way it's time to see just how fast the guilds get back to their respective maximums, especially with Method as Fallen Avatar might still take a while even with a winning strategy and a new reset's worth of gear.

It seems there's a bit of a lull at the moment, with the most recent kill being Honestly's US/OC 4th Mistress Sassz'ine, so I wanted to share this pretty damn amazing trailer that just came out. It has a special significance for me in relation to the World First race, as Naxx was the first raid where I really felt that true WF rush (C'thun was just stupidly tuned and then hotfixed at a time more convenient for EU guilds, so I never really considered that such a big deal), and that Kel'thuzad first was truly an incredible feeling and really established Nihilum as one of the very top guilds at the time. In any case, Hurricane made this incredible Naxxramas trailer and you should check out his channel for even more cool stuff, like the Burning Crusade T5 trailer.

There has been a rash of Harjatan and Demonic Inquisition kills recently, and we now have 53 guilds that downed three bosses in the Tomb! There are also 35 that only managed to get two and 70 that only got poor Goroth down. The top remains the same with only Limit and Easy on 4/9, Big Dumb Guild and Exorsus on 5/9 and Method at the top with 6.

And I'm back and updating, pleasantly surprised we didn't see any new World Firsts, but it seems Method and Exorsus are living up to the hype and at the forefront as usual. Taking the route the US/OC guilds laid out it's now a three way tie at the top and four bosses left less than 24 hours after the raid was live. Let's see how fast Method and Exorsus separate from the pack and if this early clear was any indication for which of the two will finish ahead.

It seems word of my playing Diablo has gotten out as we have two more guilds join the race at 1/9! Both Alacrity and Fused got passed Goroth and are looking ahead to that big 3/9 pack. We also see the return of the loudest guild in the race, WHATEVER WERE AWESOME, at 1/9 as well.

As expected, the very instant I started up Diablo 3, 2 kills happened. Benched joined the other three guilds on 3/9 by clearing up Demonic Inquisition and Storm joined the Mythic guilds by downing Goroth and 1/9ing!

It also seems Limit are having a bit of trouble with 2 raiders getting stuck:

Unsurprisingly Limit move up in the world quickly with the W3rd Demonic Inquisition kill, and they'll probably be on 4/9 pretty soon as well as they remain the favorites for the US/OC crown. And so we now have three guilds on 2/9, but of those only Limit went for DI before Harjatan, who seems to be the more popular/easier choice.

It seems things have actually calmed down now as Easy and Big Dumb Guild work on that 4/9 and we haven't had any new guild entries in a while. To compare the pace with Nighthold, the first three bosses went down around an hour faster back at the end of tier 19, but as you'll remember the fourth boss was Spellblade and she was quite a leap in difficulty. But, if we go by the NH comparison, ignoring the 1 extra boss in the raid, the next kill isn't even close, as we'll be seeing it around 3AM CEST, aka some 6+ hours from now.

Also, it seems Wowprogress finally updated Big Dumb Guild's Goroth kill and it's now properly marked as World 2nd, as we previously reported, hopefully ending any confusion anyone may have had.

Now that I have a minute to breathe, it seems we have two guilds neck and neck, each choosing a different path after Goroth. And just to clarify for those of you also following Wowprogress, our rankings are correct and it was Easy that downed Goroth first, by about 5 minutes. Right now it seems these two will go at it until they reach a relatively difficult boss and then probably head to split Heroic for some gear, and we should begin seeing some more guilds enter the race relatively soon as well.

The new boss thumbnails and banners are up and they're pretty damn good if I do say so myself, courtesy of @SkogDesigns!
The progress page itself has also been upgraded, so you can decide just how much info you want to see and can jump right to the boss tables, killshots and videos, progress-related articles, or just see the text updates only! We also removed the killfeed and replaced it with a more standard top 5 guilds ranking, so let us know how you like the changes and if there's anything you want added!
