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):

Quote

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.

      This week's bonus event is Burning Crusade Timewalking! Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest to receive a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City.
      Timewalking dungeons drop item level 425 loot. You can get item level 445 loot from Black Temple Timewalking. You can obtain Arsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth on your Demon Hunter if you earned the Warglaives of Azzinoth prior. Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a small chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as Personal Loot. Blizzard (Source)
      ILLIDAN AWAITS
      Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
      The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
      Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
      DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
      All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
      The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City. EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      To prevent players from quickly killing world bosses, Blizzard recently added spawn protection for Nalak and Rukhmar, meaning the bosses will be immune to damage for a few seconds after they are attacked so that more players can tag them.
      Similar to Sha of Anger (Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent) and Galleon (Son of Galleon's Saddle), spawn protection has been enabled for Nalak and Rukhmar.
      Nalak can be found in Isle of Thunder (Pandaria) and has a chance to drop Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent.
      "This is a descendant of the irascible Nalak. Lightning erupts from its scales and arcs over the saddle. Dare you sit?"

      Rukhmar can be found in Spires of Arak (Draenor) and has a small chance to drop Solar Spirehawk.
      "Looking into the eyes of this mystical beast is like peering into the heart of the sun. Goggles are recommended when you're riding."

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?
