Here we are in day 25 of the race, still with no World 2nd, 6 full days after Method's WF! There are technically 22 guilds fighting for that silver medal, but the most likely to take it are Exorsus, Alpha and Style War, who've had more time on Kil'jaeden.

While Exorsus do have a 3 day advantage over the two Chinese guilds, Alpha and Style War have been going at it very hard, each racking up over 900 wipes to date. The incredible thing is that after said 900+ wipes and 11 days of tries on the final boss of the Tomb, Alpha have "only" gotten him as low as 39%, as the dark phase of the encounter is quite crazy. We don't have any info on Exorsus' progress or wipe count, but they did announce they would be taking it easier from last Saturday, so their lead may not be there at all.

A lot of people are commenting on how it's taking such a log time to get a World 2nd, but if we take a look into the (actually not that distant) past we can see that the 6 days it's taken to get a 2nd place finisher isn't that unprecedented - we only need look back to WoD and Blackrock Foundry to find Paragon taking 5 days to catch up to Method on Blackhand. We then move a bit more into the past, to the Mists of Pandaria and Throne of Thunder, for both Ra-den and Lei Shen. While Ra-den doesn't technically count due to his limited attempts, it still took 7.5 days for Blood Legion to finish up after Method's win, and the same two guilds were 5 days apart on Lei Shen.

The real target for Kil'jaeden at the moment is Firelands Ragnaros from back in Cataclysm, where Method took 7 days to clean up the raid after Paragon's World First. KJ seems poised to break that record, and we don't really have any stats for Vanilla and BC, so after another day he may indeed get another accolade to his name. We also have to mention the Lich King, again not really comparable to any of the above due to his limited attempts, but it did take For the Horde 16 days to get that silver after Paragon's win. All of the above stats are for the raids' maximum difficulties and for 20/25 man mode.

We also got some more info on Method's Kil'jaeden experience, with Justwait's stats for their progress pre and post-fixes (Y = combat time X = pull) :

Another strange factoid is that Method actually downed KJ on the same day as they did Archimonde in hellfire citadel, 2 years earlier.

So, 22 guilds at the final boss of the Mythic Tomb of Sargeras, three in serious competition for the silver medal, and Method taking a well deserved vacation from progress. Who do you think will fill out the top 3?

      In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
      Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
      Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.

      It's time to poke our friends over at exceL and get some hints and tips for Mythic+! It's up to you guys to dig up all the interesting info and ask the right questions, whether it's about the recent MDI Invitational, Mythic+ in general or even next season's new Reaping affix!
      As you'll remember, they rose all the way to the top in this year's Mythic Dungeon Invitational and claimed the grand prize, as well as more recently participated in the MDI All Stars Invitational at BlizzCon earlier this month and the org itself has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more.
      Tthe Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra, so submit your questions right here in the comments over the next 7 days and the awesome players of exceL's Angels will answer when we collect all of them.
      Have any questions for the M+ team? Come and ask them!

      It's a good day for solos it seems, as we now have a Mythic Helya kill, right after the amazing +11 Atal'Dazar! Durendil went into Trial of Valor on his own and faced the tentacles and light water splashes of Helheim and came out on top in what he describes as a fight that has everything he ever wanted from a solo encounter.

      We saw him solo Freehold +9 and now Iway is back with another impressive soloing video. With item level 382, he managed to clear Atal'Dazar +11 alone!
