Kil'jaeden outlives Archimonde, 7 guilds have downed Fallen Avatar, Method's WF Avatar video and more.

It's official, Kil'jaeden has outlived his boss, Archimonde! Now sure, that's already happened in the lore, but this time it's progress-race canon as well. Archimonde was the holder of the "lived the longest since Cataclysm" title until just now, as his record of staying alive for 16 days has been broken by the Deceiver just a few minutes ago.

VV3hzzS.jpg

It was Method that got the Defiler down back in Hellfire Citadel almost exactly 2 years ago and they seem poised to take down the Deceiver as well, possibly on the anniversary of Archimonde's death? The next "longest lived boss" on the list KJ might set his eyes on is Al'Akir from the Throne of the Four Winds in Cataclysm, but that particular record will almost certainly not be toppled, as the Windlord eluded death for a whopping 42 days before Paragon ended him on January 24th, 2011.

Meanwhile, we've had 4 new applicants to the Kil'jaeden killer job listing since the last time we checked in, with Chinese guild Style War getting the World 4th, Asia 2nd (with 839 wipes, in the second reset), ScrubBusters finishing off the top 5 with with their EU 3rd (and only 364 wipes - due to their more relaxed raiding schedule, the increased item level from the third reset and the videos having been released). Memento are currently in 6th/EU 4th and the most recent Avatar kill was AFK R in 7th/Asia 3rd. While it's still most likely that Method will be the ones carrying home the gold in the Tomb of Sargeras Mythic progress race, with 6 other guilds at the final boss with three resets' worth of gear, and the several nerfs/fixes Kil'jaeden has gotten over time, it's still anyone's race!

We also got Method's World First Fallen Avatar kill, featuring 5 rogues:

And that's about it for today's race update/history lesson. Big red has eluded death for now and more and more guilds are piling up on his doorstep. If you're getting really anxious about him dying, you can always check out the live coverage over at Method.gg and find out exactly when the Deceiver dies and that green bar gets filled up to the end!

I know a lot of people will not agree but i'm actually glad that Kil'Jaeden is still alive for a few reasons.

 

Lorewise K'J is a badass and would be a handful for any group of people to take down.  I mean if it were so easy Khadgar would have killed him long ago.

The raid difficulty is Mythic and by definition it is exaggerated.  I mean in my mind Normal difficulty is the average player, Heroic difficulty is the player that knows how to better themselves and can push forward.  Mythic difficulty is what it's shaping up to be, untouchable by most and killable by a handful.

It shows that blizzard can still make things a true challenge.  Looking back there were plenty of raid bosses that have eclipsed the current timeline before they were downed due to difficulty.  Some needed nerfs to be killed (C'thun, being the biggest example), but some weren't nerfed before they were downed (4HM in Naxx comes to mind).

 

Now personally I don't ever expect to see Mythic Kil'Jaeden.  I don't have the time to put into pushing myself that hard, nor do I want to.  Seeing the downing of a few mythic bosses i'm ok with, however I feel like things have been so easy for the casual gamer lately that it's refreshing to see a challenge for the hardcore gamer.

 

On the flipside I can completely understand why with the top guilds being who they are and as good as they are Kil'Jaeden being alive still is frustrating due to overtuning.

I just hope personally that he's killed before any nerfs to his fight, because that truly would be an achievement.

Oh I totally agree with you and I'm glad he's still alive as well, I just wish he was alive due to "fair" difficulty instead of artificial blocks and bugs (if you believe the top guilds that is).

Also I think there should be a separate achievement for killing Mythic Kil'Jaedan pre-nerf.  An achievement called "You are prepared..."  It should be a feat of strength that he was killed before any tuning changes were made to his fight.

Let's just be honest here for a moment, the only reason they are struggling is because the encounter has a "check" system. It clearly means they aren't geared for it yet. However these guilds just go and go at a boss until it dies unlike random pugs/guilds that disband after a couple of wipes. Once each player increases their item level it becomes easier and easier. Even a fairly casual guild can down mythic bosses into the expansion because it's all about gear at that point. They already know the encounters and mechanics behind them at that point it's all about GEAR.

 

That has NOTHING to do with difficulty, that's all MMO grinding my friend.

I agree. The Guilds are just whining because the boss is more old school, not just to be wrecked in one shot with the other bosses.

I'm not taking part in the race but it's a lot more fun to see that it isn't a matter of 1 reset.

I know this is a bit nit picky. But I would like to clarify that Archimonde is NOT, Kil'jaedens boss. Archimonde was in fact KJ's apprentice from before the eredar were integrated into the legion. He was promoted to his position and rose in power along with KJ after Velen fled with the rebellious draenei.

Yea I already got my lore ass handed to me over on facebook and you're right :D Failed my lore check like a noob, but I was mostly thinking in terms of how they were presented in the games themselves as Archi was always more of the big bad than KJ.

Here's the thing, if that's the case then fine, I can totally accept that. BUT the problem here is, and this is something that only people that play/ed in the very top guilds can know, sometimes bosses aren't just overtuned but are actually impossible due to bugs and mechanics that are either purposefully or accidentally made so that you literally can not do them until they are changed. Blizzard has already changed several things about the KJ fight (and only one of them was public in the hotfixes) and we don't really know if those were just tweaks or of some (or all) of those made the fight even possible.

If we're to believe what the guilds are saying the guy was impossible before this reset and I VERY much doubt it had anything to do with just 1 reset's worth of gear. We'll get the full story after progress, so I guess we'll see.

The apprentice thing is new to me.  I know that before Sargeras brought the opportunity to join him to Argus there were three leaders of Argus.  These leaders were Velen, Archimonde, and Kil'Jaeden.  The Triumvirate is what they were called if i'm not mistaken.  To me that leads me to believe there was no apprenticeship.  Once Velen left Argus and turned his back on his fellow leaders Archimonde became Sargeras's left hand and became the commander of the Burning Legion forces, while Kil'Jaeden on the other hand focused his abilities on assimilating as many races and worlds into the  Burning Legion as possible.  While they had different roles they still held the same title and rank to Sargeras as his Lieutenants.

They do keep changing and adding  stuff all the time though, it's part of the reason I've given up on caring about the lore pretty much. The Chronicle straight up retconned a bunch of stuff because it didn't fit their current storyline, although tbh it's been happening since the beginning with BC and the eredar/dranei story so I guess changing canon is as canon as canon can be at this point :D

Very true, and to be honest I hate when companies do this because it takes away from the story and feel.  Example, there's a story somewhere that I read about an Elf?? Hunter of some kind (might be demon hunter in the old sense, might be true hunter, or something) that for eons fought Sargeras and chased him in and out of the twisting nether.  She was finally able to almost kill him until he retreated into the nether again and disappeared.  Now the lore is that Broxigar cut his leg.  The other story just gave a better feel to the lore imo.

Said elf is the new Big Bad after 7.3, likely after killing her husband off.

      Call of the Scarab micro-holiday is back with new temporary faction mounts. The event is active through January 23, 2018 and the mounts last for 7 days.
      2018 Updates
      Players who have completed Antorus, the Burning Throne raid need to talk to Rhonormu near the gong to enter the correct event phase of Silithus. The Scarab Lord Black Qiraji Resonating Crystal mount received a brand new model this year. You can find more information here. Two new mounts can be purchased for 1 Abyssal Crest during the event. Ruby Qiraji Resonating Crystal can be purchased from Warlord Gorchuk. Sapphire Qiraji Resonating Crystal can be purchased from Field Marshal Snowfall. The mounts are not permanent and last for 7 days. Blizzard (Source)
      *1/21- The Call of the Scarab Micro-Holiday is now live. Players who have completed Antorus , the Burning Throne and who are in a different phase can speak to Rhonormu near the gong to enter the correct event phase.
      On January 23, 2006, a bloody war was triggered by a simple sound: the banging of a gong. No rallying fanfare, no bloodthirsty yell; just an eerie silence. Those long, uneasy seconds of dread. The calm before the storm.
      Standing shoulder-to-shoulder before the Scarab Wall, no one could have predicted what would happen—an epic ten-hour battle that claimed the lives of thousands of Azeroth’s bravest—or fully comprehended the effect it would have.
      ACTION FIRST, FACTION SECOND
      That’s not to say the battle at the gates of Ahn’Qiraj came as a surprise. When the menace of C’Thun turned into an urgent threat, leaders across the world pored over plans and forged unlikely connections as pressure mounted. Both factions knew war was coming and personal glory was a hubris no-one could risk. Any notion that one army could defeat General Rajaxx and his colossal battalion was soon abandoned as fantasy.
      It was a unique time: scattered armies with varying allegiances were thrown together and faction pride was put aside. Let’s be clear: the battle at Ahn’Qiraj was won purely on the principle “united we stand, divided we fall.”
      WARMONGERING VS. GOLD HUNGERING
      This uneasy alliance was not without its critics. Some showed their disapproval by shunning the war effort altogether, but others expressed opposition through acts of aggression. Rogue elements on both sides, unwilling to stomach this perceived betrayal of their faction, did not sit idle. Just as neutral auction houses became a tool for factions to share resources, they also became virtual battlegrounds. Crucial resources were picked up for next-to-nothing and sold on for personal gain. As with all wars, those who profit aren’t always the brave.
      The sheer scale of that war effort is almost unimaginable when we live in a time of extended storage and fast mail. But back then, backpacks and cloth stacks were smaller. Getting precious resources gathered, sorted, and sent took many hours. And it took several weeks to source bandages, food, and equipment—resources that were in high demand and would soon dwindle.
      THE IMPORTANCE OF REMEMBRANCE
      There are parallels with current events that are impossible to ignore: once more, we Azerothians stand united against the Burning Legion as they wreak havoc across the Broken Isles. We attempt to put aside a complex, bitter history in order to defeat a common enemy. We eye each other suspiciously, even as we fight side by side.
      We would do well, in these dark times, to remember the courage and spirit of those who were there at the Gates of Ahn’Qiraj. We must have long memories if we’re to make quick work of the demon forces we now face.
      From January 21–23 we ask that you join us as we remember the fallen and celebrate the victory. All of Azeroth are invited to a special holiday, ‘Call of the Scarab,’ where we will gather to perform acts of remembrance and share our factions’ pride.

      Allied Races
      Patch 7.3.5 contains files for Allied Races, giving Blizzard the opportunity to enable them at any time after the patch goes live.

Dark Iron Dwarves and Zandalari Trolls are gated behind the new expansion's campaign. We still have no information about their class options, but in a Q/A, Blizzard mentioned they are exploring the option to allow Dark Iron Dwarves to be Death Knights and Zandalari Trolls will be able to roll Druids.
      Unlock Requirements
      You must purchase Battle for Azeroth and have an existing character of at least level 110 on the destination realm of your Allied Race character. Allied Races are also gated behind reputation and various achievements. All requirements are account-wide.

      New Companion Pets
      A new Pet Battle meta-achievement and two new companions can be earned in 7.3.5.

Defeating Algalon now rewards both titles (Observed) and completing the Ulduar raid achievements both mounts (Glory of the Ulduar Raider). There are probably no plans to introduce a transmoggable Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings and the raid now has a single difficulty.

      Vicious War Fox Mount
      The PvP mount datamined back in Patch 7.3 is finally available for 1 Vicious Saddle.

      Zone Scaling
      A highly anticipated feature of 7.3.5 is the introduction of zone scaling. Zones have level caps, difficulty and quest rewards scale with your level. At level 58, you can choose between Outland or Northrend, at level 80 it becomes a choice between Cataclysm zones & Pandaria. Find out more about zone scaling below!

      Zone Chapters
      In addition to zone scaling, all zones now have chapters and completing a fixed number of quests is no longer required for Loremaster achievements.
