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.

You'd think that they'd take this week to enjoy their smug superiority before they have to jump back into the race.

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.

      Who We Are
      Tequila Sundown is a growing raid team formed within the <Karma Horde> guild on US-Stormreaver. Lead by a husband/wife team with high-level raiding experience dating back to WotLK, we're a "positively determined" progression team that maintains a light-hearted atmosphere while tackling mythic difficulty content. We're mature adults with jobs and family seeking like-minded players who have a passion for the game but want to avoid the needless angst or drama that often gets associated with progression raiding. We log on to have fun - so come have some fun with us!

      A Team Within a Community
      Our raid team is one of four within the larger guild of <Karma Horde>, which was formed back during WotLK. As such, the guild and Discord are very active and social. There are always people around online and in-game. The community atmosphere is welcoming and friendly to players of all levels. The guild enforces a Code of Conduct that has zero tolerance for hate/offensive speech.

      We care more about the people we play with than their item levels or progression rankings. We want players who are going to log in on non-raid nights and be down for all the other things we're into: pushing mythic+, doing world quests, PVP shenanigans, achievement hunting, hyper-competitive fishing.. there's so much to do and so many ways to enjoy the game. This is our favorite hobby and we'd like to play with you if it is yours, too.

      Progression Goals
      We are 3/11 Mythic, Heroic AOTC Antorus progression.
      We strive for a fun environment that takes the challenges of mythic seriously and giving the content the respect it deserves. Our aim is, as all mythic teams, full clear of content but with always keeping the friendly spirit of camaraderie alive. Performance matters, but so does staying positive and finding the fun in the difficulty of a raid.
      We do not require mythic raid experience to join our team but we do expect mythic-level dedication and accountability from all of our raiders.

      Raid Days/Times
      Our mandatory raids are:
      Tuesdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Thursdays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Optional:
      Sundays 8:45pm PT - 11:45pm PT
      Sundays are for raiding the previous raid difficulty.

      Recruitment Needs
      DPS: Will consider all specs, but would love to add a dedicated Shadow Priest & Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty

      The latest Alpha Build added Blight - a new Mythic Keystone affix. Damage and healing done is increased when injured, and reduced when healthy.
      Blight is a new interesting Keystone affix added in Battle for Azeroth Alpha Build 26032. Damage and healing done is increased when injured, so it will be up to the healers to find the sweet spot between having party members deal more damage and dead, because healing a player to full health will not be efficient if your party wants to utilize the damage increase.
      Affix Description Blight Damage and healing done increased when injured, and reduced when healthy.
      Relentless is a second affix that might be added in Battle for Azeroth. It has been around for a while, but hasn't been implemented yet. When the affix is active, trash mobs are temporarily immune to Loss of Control effect, meaning they can't be feared, mind controlled, stunned, rooted etc. for a short period of time.
      Affix Description Relentless Non-boss enemies are granted temporary immunity to Loss of Control effects.
      We'll keep you updated about new affixes as they become available.

      The WoW MVP program will be moved to an application-based recruitment system soon. Existing MVPs should reapply for the process. Open recruitment begins early next week, after the President's Day holiday in NA.
      Blizzard (Source)
      <This is going to be a bit of a meta discussion, and not something focused on World of Warcraft, as a whole. Those of you who are active on the forums and among the other World of Warcraft communities will probably have more thoughts on this than those who visit the forums on rare occasion.>

      Hey guys!

      Over the past year we've had it on our plate to breathe a bit of life in the MVP program for World of Warcraft (you may have seen me mention it here and there, and I know the MVPs have been eagerly waiting for movement on this). After nearly a year of discussions, we're finally ready to start moving forward with a refresh of the MVP program for World of Warcraft!

      Most of our active posters here know that when the MVP program was founded, it's goal was to recognize active forums poster who contributed to our community through things like high-quality class guides or assisting and guiding new players with helpful information. While being active and posting in a constructive manner will still be something we take into account, we realize that we now live in a world with Icy Veins, Wowhead, Reddit, and numerous other communities that didn't necessarily exist at the onset of this project. This leads our MVP group to not being able to actively fulfill it's original purpose on our singular forums platform.

      All of this led us to think we needed to be realigning the purpose of the program slightly, as we want to more actively empower the group to engage in discussions with us on various community issues, happening on the forums and in our greater community. This would also include working to provide insight into community and gameplay feedback they may see around the community, with direct conversations between the WoW community team and the WoW MVP group as a whole on a regular basis, much as we do in our conversations with folks on Reddit, Discord, etc., something that hasn't been utilized to its best.

      To facilitate this, we will be moving the WoW MVP program to an application-based recruitment system, which will address a few concerns we have currently with the recruitment process, as well as letting us asked targeted questions to candidates during certain recruitment periods, and hopefully widening the audience. We expect to open recruitment early next week, after the President’s Day holiday, so be on the lookout for a thread if you're interested!

      Of note, these changes DO NOT affect any region or franchise outside of World of Warcraft in North America, and these changes also do not apply to our awesome Customer and Technical Support MVPs who do great things.

      We look forward to getting to work on the program and hearing your feedback!
      I hope this doesn't mean Crepe is losing his MVP status. I notice community MVPs are not listed as being spared these changes.
      We're asking the MVPs to reapply for the process, but we will be keeping everyone who is able to meet the newer standards going forward! 

      I wouldn't expect any of the familiar faces you know to go away unless it's their own choice.

      It seems Blizzard plans to remove First Aid from the game in Battle for Azeroth or completely overhaul it.
      In Alpha Build 26032, First Aid achievement have moved over to Legacy.

      In addition to that, Deep Sea Bandage and Sun-Bleached Linen Bandage have been added to Tailoring instead of First Aid, which leads us to believe that Blizzard either plans to completely remove the now obsolete secondary profession or completely revisit it.
