Today was looking to be a slow day, filled with stat comparisons between the current situation in the Tomb versus the same point in Nighthold's progression, but Chinese guild Alpha had other plans.

Alpha had been going at Fallen Avatar for quite a while, having amassed over 750 wipes before this heartbreaking 0.1% wipe happened:

Normally you'd think, well, that's it, they have it and are going to down it very soon, but it wasn't quite that simple. It took them almost 100 more wipes to actually get that World 3rd, Asia first kill - a grand total of 842 tries. But get it they did and now we all get rewarded as we can actually watch Kil'jaeden progress live, as they'll be streaming it on this channel when they resume raiding. And here's the actual victory clip featuring copious nerdscreams:

After the big kill today stats seem a bit less sexy, but let's get into them anyway. We can take two different approaches to comparing ToS and Nighthold at the same stages of progress - wipe counts and actual time it took each guild to down a boss after the previous one fell. Both have issues: the wipe counts don't take into account the length of each try, so for Fallen Avatar the wipes tended to be faster since guilds could get into phase 2 and practice the hard part fairly quickly; the issue with time spent on a boss is that we can't know how much time the guilds spent actually playing in that time frame. In any case, let's take a look at the stats themselves and then everyone can decide for themselves.

Just to get an idea of where we were at this point in Nighthold, the race was basically over, at least for the top spots. We had three guilds done with the raid (Exorsus, Serenity, Method), having downed Gul'dan and another 7 that had gotten past the penultimate boss of the instance, Elisande, compared to three that have gotten to the final boss in Tomb. The actual wipe counts for Fallen Avatar look like this: Method at 453, Exorsus at 527 and, as mentioned above, Alpha at 842. We'll compare them to both Gul'dan and Elisande wipe counts, just to be thorough, but the Elisande comparison is more apt. It took Exorsus 198 wipes for Elisande and 246 for Gul'dan, while Serenity clocked in 229 and 347 and Method needed 205 and 270 for the same two. In terms of time spent from the previous boss, it took Method 5 days and 7 hours for Fallen Avatar and Exorsus needed almost exactly 8 days. In Nighthold Method took 2 days and 4 hours for Elisande and 5 days 22 hours for Gul'dan. Exorsus needed 2 days and 3 hours / 4 days 22 hours for the same.

So, it seems Fallen Avatar doesn't quite have Gul'dan beat for the No.1 guild to down him compared to the same guild's performance in NH, but pretty much beats every other statistic, and almost doubles all of the stats compared to Elisande.

We've already discussed how the top guilds feel about Kil'jaeden compared to Avatar and in general, and it's safe to assume he'll be seeing another reset and will be getting even bigger numbers than Avatar, making him the hardest and longest living boss of Legion so far, and perhaps even further back (Archimonde also lived three resets back in HFC). Some good news, however, as it seems Blizzard are indeed keeping an eye out for Kil'jaeden balance, as Sco recently tweeted this:

So, there may be some progress to be had on big red after all! In any case, the race continues and you can follow it live over on Method.gg.

0.1% wipe, good god, that is painful. Anything under 10% is usually depressing but that is just a couple of attacks at best. The collective guilt would have been bad oh if only i applied one more dot, oh if only i refreshed that one ability. Glad they stuck with it and got their kill :D

Not sure why Asian guilds are even counted as legitimate - it's well known that due to their 'environment' they're allowed to buy perfect gear sets etc.

Perhaps you'd like to elaborate on the ever so subtle "environment" comment? The very top guilds are the ones selling the loot runs etc if that's what you meant, not sure what you're referring to.

The fact that such a huge % of their playerbase comes from PC Bangs/Internet Cafes/Whatever you want to call them where they pay by the minute.  There are various vendors etc specific to the Asian client that allows them to skip, for lack of a better word, the actual game and focus just on raids.

Uh, I feel stupid here since I still don't understand how anything you mentioned has to do with them having an advantage in the race? Genuinely curious as to what you mean. There are in-game vendors that sell the best loot? Afaik the PC bangs and the whole pay per hour instead of per month thing has nothing to do with, well, anything?

In other words, blizzard stands to lose those players if they have to put in the same grind time we do, but at per minute/hour rates. So they don't.  They basically get what the old ptr premade toons did - optimized gear with no work required.

Um do you have an actual source on this? And what does that mean that EVERY player on Asia servers get the best gear? That sounds entirely not believable.

Its a pretty easy search. But yes the Asian WoW model is a paid per hour instead of a monthly sub since they generally have to play at a cafe or such. Thats why they have not been included in the race for a very long time. The way they get gear and certain drops is different then on normal servers.

So are some of you people actually going to SAY what's different about the way they get loot? I know their sub model is different, have known it for a long time, that has LITERALLY nothing to do with anything and it was NEVER a reason for them not to be counted in the race. Can you please just say HOW their loot system is different and how it is easier/they get instant best loot/ they have an unfair advantage over US/EU?

Unless of course you're referring to the outdated instance of them getting double resets or double warforged upgrades from back in WoD and MoP, but AFAIK they have 0 advantages over EU and US servers since Legion. Please correct me if I'm wrong with actual facts and not just random statements with "easy to search for" behind it. Both of you keep bringing up the hourly sub model, yet neither has been able to explain wtf that has to do with this perceived advantage? And easy to get loot?

Sorry thought it was pretty obvious from what was previously said. But the easy search come up with this quick list.

The way World of Warcraft works in Asia from a raiding standpoint:
Raid lockouts:

  1. 25 man instance bosses have 8% more health and damage; 10 man is the same as in EU/US.
  2. Gear is 8 ilvls higher 
    Even with the 8% scale when compared to the item level and the overall picture the ilvl scale simply gives players a big advantage. 8% increase simply isn't enough of an increase for it to be on the same difficulty level as EU/US WoW.
  3. If that wasn't enough, the "weekly" rest for raids in Asia is only 3 days. Garrosh was killed on the 28th I believe. That's 17 days after the patch went live.
  4. In Asia, there are also different 25 and 10 man lockouts. That's right, you can do both 25 and 10man on heroic in the same "week" or "lockout".
    Putting these 2 together: 17 days on a 3 day raid lockout means 5 resets. Being able (and the guild that got Garrosh down did) to do 25 and 10 man in the same week puts the number to 10 raid resets(2 normal; 8 heroic) while EU/US had 3 (1 normal; 2 heroic).

Since when was Mythic Raiding in Legion 10 or 25 man?  Got anything more current than 2 expansions outdated.

Actually, if you look, Fallen Avatar has 7.159 Billion Health for both Method (EU) and for Alpha (CN), which you can see Method's WF kill video and Alpha's nerd screams twitch VoD.  After that, you can see the Alpha player mouseover one of the loot items in the dungeon journal, guess what it says?  930+ aka the same as it says in the NA/EU dungeon journal.  BOTH of your points are wrong.

No? They still have higher ilvls... look it was asked why they arent included and reasons were given. You can keep nit picking but I am not going to keep giving you google searches for you to argue with. Go look for yourself and see how they get there loot.

Burden of Proof always falls on those who claim otherwise.  You have provided 0 search links and 0 links at all to your sources.

And as of right now you are claiming that what I linked through my search as otherwise. Again go search for yourself, I was just trying to answer the guys question and right now i am still the only one that gave any answer that iv seen to be true.

You haven't given us any actual source for what you "linked" (aka copy/pasted from wherever you got it).  What you linked is also around 3 years outdated, given the change to the raid system away from the 10/25 man normal/heroic system to the flex-sized normal/heroic and 20 man mythic.

 

At any rate, this quarrel has gone on too long, so I suggest both you and I drop it, as it seems to me at least that neither of us is going to get much further in convincing the other that they're wrong.

      We have some more class changes on the beta in the new build, with the focus moving o to Fury Warriors, who are getting some really huge changes. The big ones come to Enrage (moving to a Haste and movement buff), Execute getting a cooldown and generating rage, there's also tweaks to Rage generation, Raging Blow, Furious Slash and a lot more.

      We also get some more info on Discipline Priest talents, with the new one mentioned yesterday, Sins of the Many, not currently working, as well as even more tweaks to the spec.
      Fury (source)
      This week's beta build caught the Fury Warrior changes mid-flight, and is an incomplete picture of the overall changes. Work is still underway – the spec is currently being iterated on. To give some more information on the overall direction of the spec, here are some points we are looking to address:
      More tightly adjust/control Enrage uptime and Rage income (both of which heavily impact pacing, flow, and the feel of the spec) throughout the expansion, rather than letting both scale up dramatically as gearing happens. Reduce the amount of stacking damage bonuses on the spec that are available simultaneously, which reduces the desire/need to stack multiple at once, which now feels much worse to do now that virtually all of them are on the global cooldown. Figure out Furious Slash’s place on the spec.
      Enrage
      Getting mad and being better and stronger is definitely still the fantasy of Fury, and Enrage is staying as the spec’s core base mechanic and Mastery. However, Enrage is changing a bit into 25% Haste (still being adjusted) and 10% Movement speed. It’s currently 100% melee attack speed on live, and was 50% melee attack speed previously on Beta. Haste is something that’s much more felt in terms of pacing (button presses, cooldowns compressing) compared to auto attack speed, which mostly gets covered up by ability animations anyways.
      The 20% increased damage taken during Enrage is being removed. Along with this, the 15% passive increased maximum health the spec had is also going away – this was largely added to counteract the increased damage drawback that Enrage had. Now, Fury will simply have the bonus of ~8% more health than other non-tanks in the same gear level, due to being able to dual-wield a pair of 2-handed weapons.
      In terms of Enrage uptime, our current thought is we’d like to try targeting Enrage uptime to around ~60%, and not growing wildly throughout the expansion as gear improves. I think there exists a sweet spot for Enrage uptime where it’s not up so often that it’s taken for granted and you don’t have to think at all about playing around it, but also not so rare that it feels bad.
      Because Enrage uptime is a function of Enrage duration and Rage generation (which is directly proportional to the time in between Rampages), Enrage duration going up means uptime can get too high, which means time in between Rampages can get too high, which then feels bad. Currently, Enrage duration is back to 4 sec, but Rage generation has increased significantly since this round of Fury changes, so the spec should feel much faster now and the uptime on Enrage shouldn’t feel low.
      Raging Blow
      Raging Blow now Generates 12 Rage, has 2 charges, 7.5 sec recharge (reduced by Haste), has a 20% chance to instantly reset its own cooldown, and no longer requires being Enraged to be usable. It’s more similar to the Inner Rage version than the live baseline version, where it has no cooldown but requires Enrage to be usable. Raging Blow is doing a lot of things for the spec here:
      Raging Blow was changed to fit together into Rampage and Bloodthirst, both of which we thought were good and didn’t need any notable changes. Being usable only while Enraged, meant you very frequently pushed it multiple times in a row for 5 Rage each time, which didn’t feel super engaging. Having 2 charges baseline felt better, as a version with either a 6 or 7.5 sec cooldown but no charges meant it collided with Bloodthirst’s cooldown very frequently, which did not feel good. Additionally, charges on Raging Blow is sort of the only actual resource you manage on the spec, since Rage is technically a resource but only spent on Rampage and nothing else. Having a 20% chance to reset itself is the random proc on the baseline spec that adds an amount of unpredictability to the rotation.
      Furious Slash
      Furious Slash didn’t really found its place on the spec. it’s a no-cooldown free filler that didn’t feel great to press, largely as a direct result of being the lowest priority/impact ability by design. The version of Furious Slash you’re seeing this week is a first iteration, where we tried giving it more tie-ins to your core rotation/mechanics: Generates 3 Rage, has 10% chance to trigger Enrage.
      Playing this version some more internally, we thought the button felt better, but still didn’t feel great to press. Additionally, it overlaps some with Whirlwind, which is also a baseline no-cooldown free filler. So we’re going to try removing Furious Slash baseline and making Whirlwind the baseline filler in single-target. Whirlwind has the benefit of having better audio/visual feedback, and generally feeling better to press. It also just fits the fantasy of a whirling blademaster/berserker pretty well. It will generate 3 Rage + 1 additional per target hit, up to a maximum of 8 Rage (this is intended to also speed up the AOE rotation). Furious Slash is being merged together with Frenzy (talent) and becoming a talent in that slot, without the new experimental 10% chance to trigger Enrage mechanic.
      Whirlwind's Meat Cleaver effect
      Whirlwind will now cause your next 2 single-target attacks to gain the effect of striking up to 4 additional targets for 40% damage. With the changes to Raging Blow, it made sense to add Raging Blow to this effect, but at that point the only thing not included was Execute and Furious Slash, so we've added them too.
      Execute
      Execute being a Rage spender caused it replace Rampage entirely during execute range (against enemies below 20% health). We are trying a version of Execute where it has a short 6-sec cooldown, and generates 20 Rage instead of spending it, so that it adds to your rotation and helps fuel your Rampages, rather than replacing one of your core buttons. In the current design of the spec, it feels more correct for Rampage to remain the almighty and only Rage spender, and Execute to be a more support role (rather than the spammed Rage spender), even if it deals similar damage to Rampage on paper (because Execute is available less frequently and Rampage Enrages you).
      Recklessness
      With Enrage no longer coming from Bloodthirst critical strikes and instead coming from Bloodthirst at a consistent 30% rate, the spec no longer has a core critical strike mechanic, and it made less sense to have 100% critical strike chance as Fury’s baseline cooldown. Thinking about it more, 100% critical strike chance would make more sense as Arm’s cooldown, because that spec is slower-paced and more about setting up for fewer, larger hits. Fury is currently much more about flurries of many smaller hits, speed/haste, and Rage generation. To that end, Fury’s cooldown turning into double Rage generation from all sources (and some critical strike chance for flavor) made more sense, both in terms of feel, theme, and gameplay.
      As a side note, one of the upsides of Fury’s resource model is that it can support a huge amount of burst/temporarily increased resource income in a way that feels great (something many other specs can’t do as well), because Rampage spends 85% of the Rage bar – we’re consciously leaning into this more with the Recklessness mechanics changes.
      As always, thanks for all of the feedback.
       
      Discipline (source)
      Quick clarifications (all still subject to ongoing change), since this build was in a slightly intermediate state.
      --Sins isn't correctly working in this build. The buff appears, but isn't increasing damage or Atonement.
      --Tuning is pretty preliminary, but for context on the 75 row, Contrition is likely too strong, because it skews the choice between the modes of Penance too much. Contrition's heal should be weaker than a Penance Atonement, so that it's still a choice about doing more group healing vs. focusing on one target.
      --Also on the 75 row--we're currently planning to replace Orison with Shadow Covenant.
      --Luminous Barrier is still intended to replace Power Word: Barrier, as before.
      --Current plan is to buff Shadow Mend a bit, as mentioned yesterday. Less sure about Power Word: Shield after reviewing more. Shadow Mend was more strongly propped up by Mastery: Reverence.
      We're seeing all the feedback on relative balance of talents within a row, but I don't want to make any claims or promises on which talents might eventually land higher/lower. We just rearranged a lot, and whatever I say will probably be proven wrong once we give a more thorough look and heavier testing happens on beta.
