Pieces Take the World First on Restless Cabal
- Someone other than Method and Limit took down a really hard boss! Check out their setup and more.
Crucible of Storms M Race Day 1: Cabal Lives!
- Limit get the bosses down below 10%, use a whole lot of Shadow Priests and we have their best try video as well. ______________________________________________________________________
The Crucible of Storms Mythic race started today with NA guilds having started their day around 4 hours ago. There were some authentification server issues, but they were resolved within an hour and the first boss, the Restless Cabal, has survived so far. We have Limit at 43 attempts with their best at 39%/46% on the two bosses, so at least the first boss isn't quite as much of a pushover as the others in the larger raids.
While Crucible only has two bosses, the race is really only about the final boss, as we saw in Battle of Dazar'alor, where all 8 pre-Jaina bosses were defeated in two days but she still made it to the very end of the first week. Blizzard have stated that the tuning on Uu'nat is supposed to be on the same level as Jaina, but it's slightly unclear if they meant today's Jaina, after all the nerfs and with the huge item level bump from a fully cleared and farmed Dazar'alor or if they meant the difficulty of Jaina while the top guilds were progressing on her back in February.
In any case, Crucible of storms might just be a really quick two-day affair with Limit cleaning up before EU guilds get a real crack at the win, but it could also be as much of a race as Uldir and Dazar'alor were, or even more so. For comparison, Trial of Valor took three days with its three bosses, and Helya was a pretty decent endboss, although it still wouldn't be considered a "proper" race due to the length.
In other race-related news, Method's Cayna recently talked about the guild's preparations for the race and how they differed from Uldir and BoD, as well as whether there will be much of a competition at all and what he thinks of the raid overall. As always, head on over to Method's raid progress coverage for live updates.
Will Crucible be a quick couple of days clear, or is Uu'nat going to be a real challenge after all?

Well, it seems Crucible of Storms may yet be one for the books! We have our first World First of the raid, and it's a very special one. Pieces have managed to grab the kill on the Restless Cabal and clear 50% of the raid, ahead of both Limit and Method. This is a pretty big deal as we haven't had a new contender for the World First title in quite a while, especially not from the EU. And while guilds such as Wildcard Gaming and Big Dumb Guild have gotten plenty of WFs in the past, it was only on early bosses with the NA advantage. So for a EU guild to break through and take the boss down, while Limit sit at 9%/7% with their headstart, and Method at 14% and 22%, is incredibly impressive.
Here's their raid composition, with "only" 8 Priests - 5 Shadow and 3 Disc.
While the roles and specs aren't all processed yet, they're easy to figure out from the Azerite Powers.
We don't have any kill clips or killshots, unfortunately, or nerdscreams most importantly (although they wouldn't be that crazy considering it was a one-day kill). In any case, huge congratulations to Pieces, and welcome to the No.1 spot of WoW raiding, for now at least. Now let's see if they can get Uu'nat before the two top dogs as well! Meanwhile, you can check out both Limit and Method's progress live, as they're streaming right now.
There's currently a display error which causes the "Against Overwhelming Odds" quest to show incorrect item level of the reward. Blizzard increased the item level of Azerite rewards to item level 400 and non-Azerite rewards to item level 395 yesterday.
When Patch 8.2 goes live, "Against Overwhelming Odds" will be removed from a character's quest log if it hasn't been turned in before it becomes unavailable during the weekly reset. If the quest's available three weeks in a row and you accept it during the first week, it won't be removed from your quest log unless you turn it in.
There is currently a display error which is causing some characters that are eligible to receive the “Against Overwhelming Odds” quest to see an incorrect item level listed as the reward. However, the rewards are working as intended. Azerite rewards are now meant to be item level 400 and non-Azerite rewards are now meant to be item level 395. The quest chooses one at random for each character. Thank you for your patience as we work to resolve this issue and have the correct item level displayed.
As an additional note, when Rise of Azshara releases, this quest will be removed from a character’s quest log if it hasn’t been turned in before it becomes unavailable during a Tuesday morning weekly reset.
It’s not going to be removed just it won’t carry over from week to week.
Right. So if the quest is available 3 weeks in a row and you pick it up during the first week, it won’t be removed from the quest log unless you turn it in, at which point you can pick it up the next week it’s available. The quest itself will continue to exist.
