ToS Mythic Progress Race Day 2: EU Catch-up

Recommended Posts

PYj9ZB4.jpg
 

Day 2 saw the usual EU catch-up, with Method and Exorsus leading the pack as expected.

After a very late fifth boss kill by Big Dumb Guild yesterday to bring US day to a close, EU servers came up and Exorsus went straight in to grab some early Mythic kills, knowing that the first bosses were a cakewalk and could be done before Heroic splits. Method and Nova had the same idea, with the three guilds sticking together until 3/9, quickly joined by Pieces as well. It took Exorsus a couple of hours to get to that 4/9 and Sisters of the Moon kill, with Method getting there mere minutes later.

This was when Method kicked things into gear, as they broke away from the pack and grabbed the World 2nd, EU first Desolate Host kill, making them even with the leaders from Day 1, Big Dumb Guild. Exorsus soon followed suit with the World 3rd. After the two 5/9s there was a pretty big break, with some guilds going for Heroics as they didn't have any information on the next boss from the previous day. We got to see all of Big Dumb Guild's World Firsts kills through VoDs of their streams and Method also released their first two kills as well (you can check them out over here).

Over 5 hours after their Desolate Host kill, Method took the lead in the race, downing Mistress Sassz'ine World First and climbing to 6/9. We can safely say that she was the first even mild test of the top guilds' abilities, as only one other guild has even killed her so far. As usual, in all the excitement Method forgot to take a killshot, so they had to improvise:

Pieces and Nova were the next guilds to climb to 4/9, while getting the Eu 3rd and 4th, making it 7 guilds in total with Desolate Host ahead of them. The next big piece of action was when Pieces and Easy both downed the Desolate Host, in under a minute from each other, with Pieces getting the upper hand and the World 4th. Exorsus finally caught back up to the top, getting the Mistress Sassz'ine kill a full 7+ hours after Method. We then had yet another US guild grab a big kill (or two) at the very end of the day, with Limit deciding to skip Desolate Host and head straight to Mistress Sassz'ine and claiming the World third and US first on her. But that wasn't enough for them, as not even an hour later they circled back to the Host and cleared him as well, setting themselves up as third in the overall rankings and joining Method and Exorsus on 6/9.

The final piece of news for day 2 of the race was that the Asia servers came up and we had a brand new contender, with Chinese guild Qidi getting 3 Asia first kills very quickly on the usual suspects bosses. The other top Asian guilds are still doing Heroic splits and will be getting into the race soon, and they might pose a real threat to Method and Exorsus if the race lasts log enough.

As we head into day 3 it remains to be seen if Kil'jaeden will be the only survivor at the end of the day, or if Maiden of Vigilance and Fallen Avatar can hang on for a while longer. As always, for live updates head on over to Method.gg's progress coverage!

      Il'gynoth returns as a boss in Ny'alotha, the Patch 8.3 raid, and with it comes another round of whispers full of prophecies. What do they entail? This article contains spoilers.
      We fought Il'gynoth back in the Emeral Nightmare and if you played in Legion, chances are you know that his prophecies have manifested themselves later on in Battle for Azeroth. He gave us hints on how Magni would become a pawn, which happened in Rise of Azshara, and much more. Now, he's back in Ny'alotha and his Voice Overs are full of riddles.
      Il'gynoth VO
      We've analyzed all whispers below.
      This refers to Mueh'zala who is also referred to as the Father of Sleep based on WoWWiki. Mueh'zala is the loa of death worshipped by the Sandury Tribe, and likely, Bwonsamdi's boss, whose identity has not been unveiled yet.
      The "Golden One" is Calia Menethil. Although the game did not contain information on how Sylvanas killed her and Calia got raised, 8.3 sound files hint at Calia becoming the new leader of the Forsaken and her plans to reclaim Lordaeron.
      Il'gynoth claims Calia will bring only darkness. This may refer to the events of Patch 9.0 and beyond. Remember, that we faced Il'gynoth as a boss at the beginning of Legion and his prophecies came true just recently in Patch 8.2 Rise of Azshara.
      The Val'kyr have some sort of pact with Sylvanas and it appears they are eager to fulfill her every wish. What that entails remains to be seen.
      "The Vessel of Life" probably refers to the Green Dragonflight. It foreshadows a traitor amidst their ranks. Merithra, the Daughter of Ysera, has seen some screen time in Battle for Azeroth and what the future brings is uncertain as for now.
      The Dragon Aspects have lost their powers after defeating Deathwing and in Battle for Azeroth, they're back helping us against N'Zoth. 
      Patch 8.3 Voice Overs suggest that Sylvanas, who's now wielding Xal'atath, wants to use it against N'Zoth to defeat him. Her deal with Queen Azshara was to bring the champions of the Alliance and the Horde to Nazjatar, and in Visions of N'Zoth, Azshara provides us with valuable information on how to defeat the God of the Deep.
      In World of Warcraft there are six planes (realms of existence). We are the "cunning ones" and it seems we only serve one master, which is death.

      Next, we're checking out the sound files for Queen Azshara and Sylvanas. They both had a bargain and in Patch 8.3, Azshara has the key to defeating N'Zoth. Spoiler alert!
      Earlier today, we looked at sound files of multiple characters, containing spoilers on the future of the Forsaken and their leadership.
      The sound files for Queen Azshara hint at the bargain she had with Sylvanas. Azshara would make both fleets crash to the ocean floor (Nazjatar) in exchange for Xal'atath. We know how that ended when Sylvanas claimed the blade for herself...
      In Patch 8.3, Queen Azshara is tortured by Xanesh in Ny'alotha, the Waking City raid. We defeat the boss, and ultimately, she sides with us and reveals the key to defeating N'Zoth. We learn  that he is the weakest of his kin and the blade can be used to defeat him once and for all, which is how the raid is going to end.

      Who are the Aqir?
      Aqir Flying Mount
      The source of the mount remains unknown for now. Do you think it will be drop from N'Zoth on Mythic Difficulty?

      After the events of Patch 8.2.5, the Forsaken are looking for a new leader in Visions of N'Zoth. This article contains spoilers.
      In order to learn more about the future of the Forsaken, we've uploaded new VOs to our YouTube channel. Key characters include Jaina Proudmoore, Calia Menethil, Lilian Voss, and Derek Proudmoore.
      Apparently, there will be a meeting in Patch 8.3 between Jaina, Derek, Calia, and Voss. Calia tells Jaina that she decided to leave Kul Tiras for Lordaeron, because Voss asked her for help now that the Forsaken have no leader. Derek wants to join Calia as both have been raised from the dead and have something in common.

      We've analyzed Il'gynoth's new whispers and one seems to have been tailored specifically for Calia Menethil.
      An article with a full analysis will be posted later today. In the meantime, you can check out Il'gynoth's VO below.

      100 Alliance guilds have finally defeated Mythic Queen Azshara and filled The Eternal Palace Mythic Hall of Fame, which means Mythic cross-realm raiding will become available for the raid next week after maintenance.
      Congratulations to Proud Manlets of Kel'Thuzad (US). They're the 100th guild to defeat Mythic Queen Azshara!

      On the opposite side of the spectrum, Horde guilds have filled the Hall of Fame on September 5.
