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.

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 5/11-Heroic 11/11-Normal Antorus, having killed every boss we've pulled.
      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:  YES. Ranged DPS - will consider all, but would love to pick up a hunter, mage, and elemental shaman. Melee DPS - prefer enhance shaman or survival hunter.
      Healers: NO. No current needs.
      Tank: NO. No current needs.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you the inside picture on how we operate as a raid team.

      Method released their kill video for Antorus' penultimate boss earlier today and Limit followed suit soon after:

      Today also saw another big bunch of Aggramar kills, with the total number of guilds on 10/11 rising to 19. We had two more Asia kills (regional 3rd and 4th place), as Skyline and Ding Xin grabbed the 10th and 11 overall spots, Libertad with the EU 6th in 12th, Honestly with the US/OC 3rd in 13th followed by 6 more EU guilds.
      Argus survived another day and has only 1 more left before Method and Exorsus head into the second rest, with US guilds already in week 2 and Asia guilds getting a bit more time after EU servers reset.

      Adois (Illidan-US) was Limit's fifth healer. He sent his other co-healers spoofed links that forced them to disconnect to get a raid spot for himself.
      Limit is currently at 10/11M in Antorus. Jeathebelle posted a series of interesting tweets today, revealing that one of their healers DDoSed other raid members to get a raid spot.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126010703597570 He also added that the Restoration Shaman was the worst players on the roster.
      Placeholder for tweet 940126081251725312 Limit only found out, because Adois started sending short links to other healers.
      Placeholder for tweet 940131880279662592 The only healer who had clicked the link had disconnected from voice chat, discord, and the game. Adois always miraculously came online to be available at the time of the disconnects.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132077936111616 Adois has been doing this for a long time to get a spot for Avatar and Kil'jaeden in Tomb.
      Placeholder for tweet 940132413254066176 Placeholder for tweet 940145295534510086 We wish Limit the best of luck and hope that this negative experience won't affect their Mythic progress in Antorus!

      A Mythic only phase video, many Aggramar kills and Method GM Sco explains why Argus isn't dead yet in detail.
      It's been a few days since we've checked in on the Antorus Mythic progress race, but not that much has happened since then as, thankfully, Argus is still alive! The big news is that a whole bunch of guilds got past Aggramar, resulting in us getting some footage of the Mythic-only phase of Argus the Unmaker, courtesy of Chinese guild Style War:
      You can also follow Style War live as they tackle Argus Mythic right here:

      Everything started with Finnish guilds Memento getting the World 4th on Aggramar, catching up to the standard top 3 of Method, Exorsus and Limit, followed by the above mentioned Style War, who managed to nab the Asia first as well. Bleached Bones (EU 4th)  were next on the Argus access train, followed by Alpha (Asia 2nd), ScrubBusters (EU 5th) and Easy (US/OC 2nd), and so we now have 9 guilds progressing on the probably final boss of Legion. We then have a large group consisting of 22 guilds that have downed Coven of Shivarra and are at Aggramar's door, with another 11 still fighting the Coven. Today should bring Method's Aggramar World First video, which will swiftly be followed by Limit's and perhaps Exorsus' own videos as well, so stay tuned for that.
      Today also saw Method's GM Sco reveal the very complex and intricate reason why they still hadn't killed Argus, as he explains in this video:
      As the second reset approaches, Method and Exorsus still have 2 days to make Antorus into quite an easy race, whereas Limit only have one to finish it all up before the significant influx of gear that is the 2nd round of clears. With so many bosses dying on the first and second days, it's at least a little bit of a relief that Argus wasn't that much of a pushover. Now let's see if he can salvage the entire raid by living a bit longer.
