Nighthold Mythic WF Race Day 2: EU/Serenity Day

Recommended Posts


EU guilds finally got into the race, catching up with the US quickly and Serenity took the lead, with 7 bosses downed and Limit posted 2 World First kill videos.


Day 2 has finished and brought the dead boss tally up to 7. The EU part of the race started today and played out quite similarly to the US counterpart, with Serenity starting slow and going for Heroic splits first, just as Limit did in the US, leaving the first few bosses to others, only to come back later, clean house and ultimately head into the lead on 7/10.

But we're getting ahead of ourselves. Exorsus, Pieces and From Scratch went into mythic Nighthold extremely early, downing Skorpyron within 20ish minutes of the instance reset and all three took down the first three bosses as the...well, top 3. Way too many threes there. Spellblade Aluriel, the first even remotely challenging test of the raid didn't hold up for long either, as Exorsus and From Scratch just kept on clearing, joined by Method in the No.3 slot.

After Aluriel, things got a little more complicated, as the field was open as to which boss could be next. Krosus emerged as the easiest target, and saw Serenity get back from their Heroic splits to get in-between Exorsus and From Scratch in the No.2 slot, all three closely followed by Method and Pieces. This is where it became obvious that Serenity had made the right choice to do the splits before heading to Mythic, as they immediately pulled away from the pack and cleaned Tichondrius' clock under 2 hours after downing Krosus. Exorsus caught up and got the World 3rd, EU 2nd on Tichondrius, but Serenity weren't stopping, as they went on to get the World First on High Botanist Tel'arn, but it did take them almost 4 hours to do so (which, incidentally, is the same amount of time it took them to down the first 4 bosses combined, with the first 3 taking 25 minutes).


Serenity were sitting pretty at 7/10 bosses down, the only ones to have done so for quite a while (4 hours, in fact) before anyone came a knockin, and the one who knocks was Limit, who were back after their break, getting the World 2nd and US 1st on the Botanist. It would soon be three guilds in that top 7/10 group, as Exorsus joined them a while later, but everyone else seemed to be stuck behind Tichondrius, as From Scratch, Method and Midwinter have stayed on 5/10, perhaps taking it a little more easily. The Asia servers also came up very recently, and Koren guild AFK R took the first three bosses ahead of the many Chinese guilds chasing them very closely.

There were also some lag issues on EU servers for almost all the top guilds, making the day  frustrating to progress on, so let's hope for a cleaner day 3 and that at least Elisande and Gul'dan make it to the next reset, with High Augur Etraeus being our next best hope of stemming this crazy top guild onslaught!

Limit also posted two World First kill videos, Spellblade Aluriel and Krosus:

Does really anybody care about the US an Asian guilds in the race? We all know that US who got the raid one day earlier and the asians got it  2 days later or smth. I don't understand how Limit can say they are world first on some bosses. C'mon they got it earlier than Europe, and European guilds still smack them even with the 1 day extra they got. I think the world first should be time calculated from the opening of the raid on a region.

Shouldn't the hardest PVE content in the game take more time to beat?

With current itemisation system ( Mythic + ) and so on, and due to this inability to balance trinkets and other items it is pretty hard to do some decent raids. Add here the popularity of the game and raids, Blizzard makes them for huge mass of players, so that it was possible for everyone to beat them. That is why the mythic race is so fast. Add here all those PTR tests and so on.

To be fair Limit isn't calling themselves "World First", other people are. And they techically did kill it world first, unfortunately the system is really stupid and unfair. Also Asian guilds have gotten WFs in the past, as soon as a raid takes longer than 1-2 resets they are back in competition.

Looks like ToV Mythic pre-nerf will stay as the hardest raid in Legion

Gul'dan is much harder than the rest of nighthold. Plus there is Star Augur and Elisande that are also going to be much harder than the bosses that have been killed, so I don't know which will be harder.

      We have a big one today as Lorekeeper.net got a hold of Narrative Lead Steve Danuser and got a whole lot of new info from him on many different aspects of the Shadowlands. We even got an answer to the very frequently asked question about what happens to Alternate Universe souls when they die, aka is there an AU Shadowlands! And even thought the answer is somewhat vague, it's a definitive one - there is only one Shadowlands and all souls from any parallel universes end up there.

      We also learned a lot more from the interview, like:
      Time is different in the Shadowlands and that affects everything else (related to most of the other answers below). Other cosmic force characters (Life, Death, Order, Disorder, Light, Void), like the Naaru, don't go to the Shadowlands when they die, as they go back to their point of origin and reform over time, barring any intervention. Some Necromancer class rumors were dispelled, Maldraxxus wasn't intended as a tease for it. We got an explanation as to what exactly happens when someone is raised from the dead, with the Forsaken in focus and their relationship to Death as the cosmic force that now anchors their souls to their bodies, whereas Life served that function when they were alive. And so their souls are not in the Shadowlands but simply bound to their bodies by a different source than in life. We also found out what the relationships of couples and close relationships are like after death in the Shadowlands - with another relatively vague answer with Draka's example - basically she's busy with the events in the Shadowlands to think about her mortal life, and since time is different she doesn't really perceive it as an issue. There are additional parts of the Shadowlands the team didn't get to explore, but will in future updates. There's a whole lot to more unpack and read about in the massive interview, and all of it is extremely interesting, and not only for lore enthusiasts, as the Shadowlands really does act as a big setup for expanding the Warcraft universe. Definitely go check out the full thing as it's full of pretty huge revelations, even in addition to the highlights we pulled out above.

      We have some more very interesting maps to take a look at, as redditor ChromeDragon has created a new territorial/political map for Classic/Vanilla, featuring both the civilized races and the somewhat more savage/adversarial mob races as well! These two maps are also interesting to use as comparison to how things changed later down the line in Warcraft's history, especially with the Cataclysm and more recent, tree-burning and Warfront events.
      We start off with the new map, featuring the less civilized or forgotten races of Azeroth or rather the player antagonists int he game, those that don't show up on other similar maps. They don't hold quite as much territory, what with players coming in every 2 minutes and ransacking their homes, but it's still interesting to see where some of the more prominent settlements are. From Murlocs to Furbolgs, Centaurs, Harpies, Quillboars and so on, there's many of them out there controlling a lot of territory and while there might be some missing, it's still a great overview!

      The exact description from ChromeDragon for the above was "Basically a political map of azeroth if you removed all the races capable of building two story buildings", which sparked quite a fun conversation over on reddit, so make sure to check that out as well.
      And then there's the older, more traditional map, created quite a while ago, covering the territories of the races and tribes we're more familiar with, from playable races to NPC ones, like Orcs, Night Elves, Dwarves and organizations like the Scarlet Crusade, Cenarion Circle etc.

      Source 1, 2.

      Here come more realm connections, and the citizens of Khadgar are terrified. The postponed connection of their realm with 3 others caused a little time travel accident and reverted many characters to their Mists of Pandaria days, or as Blizzard refer to it below it "ran into issues".
      Let's hope it goes smoothly this time around, as the aftermath of the previous "issues" is still being resolved.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Following regularly scheduled weekly maintenance on Tuesday, September 29, the following realms will be taken offline. During this additional maintenance period:
      The Exodar and Medivh realms will be connected to the Alleria and Khadgar realms. As many players know, this connection was previously planned and ran into issues.
      On Tuesday, we’ll begin the additional maintenance period for these four realms at 8:00 am. PDT (11:00 a.m. EDT), and the realms will come back online when the connection process is completed, which we’re estimating to be around 4:00 p.m. PDT (7:00 p.m. EDT).
