The Raid History World First Timeline

Recommended Posts

Y6zWdeN.png
 

Method.gg have just finished a pretty huge project, bringing over and significantly improving the old Manaflask raid history timeline. As that site no longer exists, they've also updated the timeline with Legion content and will continue to update it with Antorus and onward. You can find all World Firsts, as well as kill videos for all the major raids from WoW's history (or rather just the maximum difficulty and maximum raid size ones) and articles related to the raids in question, all in one place.

You can head straight to the timeline right now, and there's also this handy hype video to go with it:

Here's what the guys over at Method.gg had to say about the project (and by guys over at Method.gg I mean myself):

The timeline itself might loo familiar to you, as it was originally part of the Manaflask site. But, as that page is gone, with the Method site taking over World First progress race coverage, it was a natural fit for this project, since Method as a guild have been in the raid progress race almost since the beginning of the game. We've upgraded the old Manaflask site as well, but also brought over some of the better articles from the history of raiding, including old raid progress coverage articles, guild interviews, raid retrospectives and more! Some of the new and upgraded features include:

Updated kill dates and guilds

We went through all the boss kill dates and corrected some mistakes, as well as added some new World Firsts that have been found since the original site went down. In fact, the very first kill registered on the timeline is brand new, as Onyxia was killed by Korean guild "The Chosen" before the previous World First by US guild "Ruined".

World First kill videos

We've also added videos for each boss, finding the highest ranked kill where available, and adding non-WF and even unranked ones where we couldn't find any better ones.

Continued raid and expansion coverage

As Manaflask is no longer live, the most important aspect of this new timeline is that it will continue to be updated with new kills as they happen, with Antorus: the Burning Throne progress starting next week, we'll be adding new World Firsts and videos as they happen.

Raid related articles

We've salvaged the best of the older articles from Manaflask, as well as added our own from Legion onwards and will be adding new ones to the timeline as they are created. So not only will you have an overview of all the World Firsts and videos, you can also take a look at some of the older articles related to previous raids, including guild interviews, raid progress overview series like Sonie's Healing Method or Mancy's Ensidia, Wormie's Vanilla overview, as well as older raid progress coverage.

I'm pretty sure Molten Core lasted 154 days because nobody knew it existed for the first 90 or so. 

More like because Rag was bugged/insanely overtuned for most of those days and unkillable :D

I'll have to take your word on that - I didn't join the raid scene until right around the time BWL came out.

Did you do the 'send warlocks into BRD and summon the entire guild' method of attunement?

Don't think so, at least i don't remember that specifically. We weren't hyper hardcore during MC tho, I remember the first time we went into the raid we weren't even a full raid and had people who hadn't even dinged 60 yet.

Shockingly, we wiped on the first Molten Giant pull a number of times, managed to down them then couldn't get past the first fire elemental guy.

      Chaoswithinx cleared Torghast's Upper Reaches Layer 8 under 5 minutes and shared a video of their clear.
      The player started speed-running Torghast and managed to find out some crazy strategies, which they used to clear Layer 8 in 4 minutes and 56 seconds with a Marksmanship Hunter. Congrats on the run!

      While advertising boost sales in the chat channels is not against ToS, it is very annoying and by now comprises the majority of all chat that we see in the game. This is without even mentioning the Group Finder spam, which IS against ToS, is constantly being reported, but it's still there, clogging everything up and making legitimate runs harder to find (but has gotten a little better since the ban).
      Luckily there's some solutions, none of them perfect, that can help out.
      Chat Channel Spam Solutions
      There's a very new addon by rowaasr13 called SR13-AntiSpam, which works on the chat channels and using pattern recognition:
      Then there's EasyFilter, which has a lot of advanced filtering options, but hasn't been updated in quite a while (but still works).
      Group Finder
      LFGSpamFilter is a relatively simple one as well and also offers very simple reporting options.
      The Premade Groups Filter addon may not have been made with this purpose in mind, but it helps! The issue is there's a lot of input needed from the player, as you'll have to enter the filters yourselves, and the sellers tend to use non-standard wording so not everything can be filtered out. You can check out some more details on how to use it here, or try some simple filters like this one suggested by chymmi:
      Bad Boy
      We've talked about this one before and it covers both above categories, is an excellent all-rounder with its Group Finder and chat channel coverage, but it's also been known to miss a lot of entries. But it's definitely worth having, as it's the least fuss and gets at least some stuff out of the way.
       
      The only ultimate solution is to install most/all of these and hope they can clean things up enough to make it tolerable, although it seems unlikely we can get rid of all of it, as boosting is a part of WoW now and isn't going anywhere, and whenever there's real money to be made, you can be sure people will push way too far and not go away any time soon.

      Here we are in Castle Nathria week 7! Things have stabilized after the tuning pass from two weeks ago and we can get a proper look at the situation in the raid, as the headline is Feral climbing up very high! So we'll be taking a look at the spec, as our class guide writer talks about it and we'll also check out Elemental.
      The hardly played specs for this week are the usual suspects, as Survival leads the pack with 132 logs and only Assassination is anywhere close to as low, with 275, as the other not-so-much-played hover in the 600-900 range, as Frost DK, Demonology and Arcane also didn't get much Mythic play. For comparison, the most played specs (Marksmanship and Fire) have 57,000 and 45,000 logs.
      In the actual rankings we can see that Fire has surpassed Windwalker, as Feral and Arcane jumped a whole lot as well (although considering the low number of logs, that might just be an anomaly)!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Feral Druid by Wordup:
      Elemental Shaman by Stormy:

      And finally, let's take a look at the Heroic data as well, as there are a lot more logs present there and while the very top looks somewhat similar to Mythic, the rest is pretty jumbled.

      As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here.

      With the second potency conduits unlocked for many companions, the options have also opened up significantly and players are now much more likely to want to swap their Soulbind than before.
      Luckily, while you still have to be at a Sanctum Forge to change your Conduits, you can actually switch your Soulbinds in any resting area! Whether it's the main Torghast hall, any random inn or similar, you can swap away at your leisure! You can even swap it at the Torghast vendors or with the Kyrian Steward!
      You just head to your Covenant screen (next to your minimap) and select your current Soulbind to access the menu:

      You can also select different trees on this screen, and while you still can't change the specific Conduits, you can still swap them around a little on your pre-set trees, which could help (a little) with the same Soulbind for off-spec problem.

      An even easier way to swap is if you're changing spec, if you have a different Soulbind on the different spec, it'll automatically switch to it as well.
      While a lot of you may have known this already, hopefully it will help out at least a few players and avoid some Sanctum return-trips.

      According to the latest player reports, Legacy raid scaling is still bugged two months after Shadowlands release.
      A lot of players enjoy soloing old raids, be it for transmog, pets, and mounts. The problem with Shadowlands and Legacy content is that players cannot solo encounters that were easily soloable back in Battle for Azeroth.
      We're now 2 expansions behind Legion, and players are incapable of soloing Mythic Nighthold, especially with getting "The Demon Within" down before being overwhelmed by the stuns and exponentially increasing damage from Parasitic Wounds. What is more, it's complicated finding groups for Legacy raids these days, so one would assume it makes sense to make content easier rather than more difficult.
      In multiple interviews before the pre-patch squish, Blizzard mentioned we should be able to solo bosses that we could solo before the squish.
      Card
      Some players were doing N'Zoth, and due to scaling, the raid leader refused to invite more players to the group because it would not be easy to defeat BfA's final boss.
      Card
      Mackpack thinks the current trend is a clear departure from how Legacy content worked for the last 6 years. In Warlords of Draenor, Blizzard apparently introduced a hidden buff that allowed players that overleveled content by more than 10 levels to solo bosses quickly, but something went awry with 9.0 scaling.

      What has your experience been with soloing Legacy content in Shadowlands so far?
