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.

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.

      About the Lawsuit
      Last week, The California Department of Fair Employment and Housing sued Activision Blizzard over "frat boy" culture. The lawsuit was filed after a two-year investigation by the state agency, according to Bloomberg.
      Since then, Blizzard President J. Allen Brack sent an internal email to Blizzard employees. The former CEO and co-founder of Blizzard Mike Morhaime later also came forward with his own statement.
      More than 1,000 current and former Blizzard employees signed an open letter, condemning the company's responses, and sent it to multiple publications.
      The World of Warcraft team released a statement yesterday and promised to remove references that are not appropriate to be removed from the game soon.
      Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick also issued a statement, where he called the company's initial responses to the lawsuit and employee concerns "tone-deaf." You can read the full statement here.
      Activision Blizzard employees have now responded to Bobby Kotick's statement via IGN and are organizing a walkout protest today.
      Here is their response:
      Activision Blizzard Employees' Response to Bobby Kotick's Statement
      On the evening before our employee walkout, Activision Blizzard leadership released a statement apologizing for their harmful responses to last week's DFEH lawsuit. While we are pleased to see that our collective voices -- including an open letter with thousands of signatures from current employees -- have convinced leadership to change the tone of their communications, this response fails to address critical elements at the heart of employee concerns.
      Activision Blizzard's response did not address the following:
      - The end of forced arbitration for all employees.
      - Worker participation in oversight of hiring and promotion policies.
      - The need for greater pay transparency and to ensure equality.
      - Employee selection of a third party to audit HR and other company processes.
      Today's walkout will demonstrate that this is not a one-time event that our leaders can ignore. We will not return to silence; we will not be placated by the same processes that led us to this point.
      This is the beginning of an enduring movement in favor of better labor conditions for all employees, especially women, in particular women of color and transgender women, nonbinary people, and other marginalized groups.
      We expect a prompt response and a commitment to action from leadership on the points enumerated above and look forward to maintaining a constructive dialogue on how to build a better Activision Blizzard for all employees.
      Today, we stand up for a chance. Tomorrow and beyond, we will be the change.

      If you have spare Anima, seek out Anima Exchange Specialist To'kul, a new NPC in Oribos that lets you exchange Anima for various goods.
      To'kul sells the following items for Reservoir Anima:
      Korthite Crystal Geode -- contains 5 Korthite Crystal and costs 25,000 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Heavy Callous Hide -- contains 20 Heavy Callous Hide and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Elethium Ore -- contains 20 Elethium Ore and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. Shipment of Lightless Silk -- contains 20 Lightless Silk and costs 7,500 Reservoir Anima. This NPC must have been added to the game recently. Screenshot courtesy of absolis.

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is currently available on US servers. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount!
      Here's how the mount looks like in the game.

      First, you must unlock the quest for it to become visible on the map. Below, we posted all the steps that you need to complete to unlock the quest for the mount.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Gitoff speed-cleared Torghast Layer 12 in 2 minutes and 56 seconds.
      While most players focus on getting a Flawless Score in Torghast, Gitoff tried something different and managed to kill the Floor 5 on the highest difficulty under 3 minutes on their Demon Hunter.

      Here's a treat for all you RWF fans, and well, everyone else as well as Echo, the winners of the Sanctum of Domination race, have put together a "cinematic" kill/defeat video, with a cool intro and then regular multi-PoV footage going through the entire fight, the nerdscreams and the real-life footage at their event. There's also a cool thank you list to the many players that helped them with split runs which runs at the end, looks like an Avengers movie CGI artists list, and lasts 6 minutes.

      Congratulations on the World First once again, it truly was one of the better race events so far!
