wow Demon Hunter Solo Mythic Archimonde

We've already seen a Hunter solo Archimonde Mythic, but now it's time for an extra word in there and a more lore-appropriate adversary to take down the former CEO of the Burning Legion (no, Sargeras would just be the founder/owner of the company, calm down). Mionelol has taken on the big green/gray guy in a fitting demon hunter vs. demon fight and came out victorious!
Also: that's A LOT of infernals!

Void stars doing their best goomba impressions!

Ah, Mythic Archimonde. This fight was on the radar for quite some time, wasn't it?

This was a pretty interesting boss to attempt, with the first few tries happening right after beating Mannoroth, bringing me to p3 already, leading to my swift demise from the very first Source of Chaos 40 seconds into p3, over and over.

Thankfully, changes to the class, new legendary items, and additional gear allowed me to pass that first Source of Chaos eventually, only to begin a long chain of events involving Infernos, Void Stars (oh god Void Stars) and additional sources. (it goes Source, orbs, Source, orbs, orbs, Source, orbs, Source, orbs, enrage.)

Void Stars are hell when not managed cleanly. Infernos add a degree of messiness by being obnoxious visual obstructors in my face. Sources on the other hand required me to dedicate nearly all my offensive cooldowns to them, which in turns leads to pathetic boss dps.

Eventually, after dozens of attempts being pinballed everywhere by Void Stars and trying to recover haphazardly with Glide, I figured out a non-RNG way to deal with them, aka goomba stomp, which is pretty unintuitive (who wants to leap on top of them?) but works out nicely.

Finally, because those obstacles weren't enough, the enrage kicked in (the p3 enrage, not the actual 12min enrage - the 12 minute one is mostly irrelevant). It's a fun watch, and to be honest I chuckled a little when I discovered it. Turns otu that on top of buffing his melee attacks (like a regular enrage) he also spams Inferno every half-second or so. This inferno spam actually works in my favor by allowing a lot of Cinidaria healing, otherwise the increased melee damage from Archimonde wouldn't really be outhealable for long. Eventually the sheer spam of infernos ends up destroying my frame rate though, so it's not really sustainable endlessly.

Anyway this was a really cool fight, although diminished by the lack of anything meaningful in p1 and p2 (even the dps isnt relevant, considering you'd need to be quite slow for the 12min enrage to kick in before the p3 enrage itself). It was an interesting bite for sure. The video does a bad job of capturing the difficulty of the fight, it looks really easy when I re-watch it but it was hell during attempts :p

Usually I'd say that this concludes the expac soloing nicely but there wasn't much of a journey this time around, especially considering I completely ignored Mythic BRF so far. Next will be... idk really, maybe back to mythic+, maybe more mythic bosses, maybe something else.

With all due respect, wouldn't http://wow.gamepedia.com/Kil'jaeden be the CEO? It is cited "second in command" and "supreme commander" a few times.

 

This is further enforced by the fact that we will encounter Kil'jaeden in full force in the Tomb of Sargeras. Assuming WoD was "easier" than Legion in terms of adventurer (Which makes sense because you now need artifacts to beat these baddies while that wasn't needed for Archimonde), then Kil'jaeden would definitely be the CEO.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.

      The latest Patch 7.3 build added voice overs for the most important Argus characters as well as sounds for Antorus, the Burning Throne raid bosses. They're a great complement to the leaked Legion ending and our theory of Pantheon involvement in Antorus.
      Please note that this article contains major spoilers revolving around the Argus story line and Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Argus the Unmaker (Argus World Soul)
      Final boss of Antorus the Burning Throne.
      Aggramar
      Penultimate boss in Antorus.
      Aman'thul
      It seems he appears when Argus is defeated.
      Eonar
      A Valithria-style boss in Antorus.
      Sargeras
      Currently, he doesn't have a model, there's just a "Voice of Sargeras" NPC in the game files having the skin of an Infernal.

      Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now a two day raiding guild; we had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.

      Basics: be ilvl 890+; 52+ points in MS Artifact Weapon.
      Raiding 101: be able to execute/avoid fight mechanics; communicate in English and use a microphone.
      We raid twice a week, a total of 6 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
      Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
       
      Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 11:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
