Antorus M Progress Day 1: 9 Down 2 to Go

Recommended Posts

Well, it seems Antorus isn't quite so Mythic after all. The tuning for the majority of the bosses (hopefully) didn't quite go as planned by Blizzard, as today saw 9 of the 11 bosses fall, significantly more than in Tomb of Sargeras where we only saw 5 of the total 9 down on day 1.

If there was any doubt left as to who the top US/OC guild was it's been removed, as Limit have taken all but the very first World First, constantly being at least 1 boss in front of of the competition, and are currently three bosses ahead. As usual, the EU guilds haven't had a crack at any of the bosses yet and despite the large amount of deaths it really is all about Argus the Unmaker, and if his tuning is on point, this setback won't matter or be remembered much.

Limit is followed by Big Dumb Guild, who also claimed the very first WF in Antorus. Easy, Alacrity and Midwinter complete the group of three trailing the No.1 and No.2, currently at 6/11 bosses down, and it's good to see Midwinter pop up again, coming back after quitting hardcore raiding during the Nighthold race. We have a fair number of guilds on 5/11: Fused, Benched, WHATEVER WERE AWESOME, Strawberry Puppy kisses and Lethal followed by a bunch of guilds on 4/11: Instant Dollars, , vodkaz, Encore, Storm, DNO and Metempsychosis. Nine guilds are on 3/11, nineteen on 2/11 and seventy guilds have only downed the first boss, Garothi Worldbreaker.

And so the EU servers are about to come up and there will be a lot more dead bosses soon - hopefully we won't be seeing any new World Firsts today, or Argus will be meeting the raiders far sooner than expected.

As always, head on over to Method.gg for live coverage, boss tables and more.

So last raid was to hard and everybody complainted and now this one is relatively easy, as we still have to see the last bosses to go down so not sure yet. And now we complain again. Strange.

I know english isn't my 1st language, but that doesn't seem to mean anything, though I understand what you wanted to say.

This honestly isn't too surprising. When my guild did normal we steamrolled in it in one night (only a few peeps were super geared) and heroic was not that bad either, a very low tuned raid difficulty wise. Now argus may prove a bit more of a roadblock but, probably not too bad. It's an easy raid but I still think its pretty enjoyable and has some replay value because having fun matters too....... right?

Pretty sure this is intentional on their part - save themselves the hassle of rolling out nerfs every week and just set it to the intended level to begin with.  More resources to dedicate to Kul Tiras Is Nagas And Also Jaina Is Queen Azshara And Alleria Is the Real End Boss.

I hear you there.  2 nights for us, but that was just a couple bosses on night 2.  

Heroic is much more of a challenge, but normal was...  almost LFR level easy.

Single night clear normal, Heroic was bumpier... Mechanics weren't too much more difficult but the bosses definitely hit a lot harder than their normal counterparts.  Imonar for example on normal barely scratches me without ironfur up, and on heroic I feel like i'm getting pummeled by a steel beam attached to a semi that's driving forward and then backing up over and over again...

I was kind of afraid of this. When I saw that Argus needed buffs, I got worried that the raid would be undertuned. They certainly need buffs, otherwise the world first of Argus could possibly be snatched away within the next few days.

Something seems really off with tunning on this raid tier, specially comparing small groups x larger groups. My guild is having a lot of trouble dealing with some mechanics with 12/13 people, while my sister's guild is zerging everything with 27/28 people on their team.

I don't know why, but seeing these guilds clearing 9 bosses on mythic in a few hours is a little weird tbh, specially because this is the last raid.

Haha you're right, the "saw" got lost somewhere in the many edits.

      The WoW community spent the second half of this week in anticipation of Blizzard's pre-patch release date announcement, only to come away disappointed. There has been plenty of speculation on the date, going from September 15th all the way to the current most likely date of October 6th (for the US). Also, a brand new clue/tinfoil hat conspiracy has come up recently as well, as some mobs are channeling once again!
      The Season End Warning
      First things first though, the real reason why October 6th/7th is the most likely pre-patch release date at this time is the warning Blizzard give out for the end of a season. Usually it's around 2 weeks, but it's been known to be less, and many players are hoping they'll just make it 1 week this time. However, with this being the end of not just Season 4 but also Battle for Azeroth in general, with many players still chasing AotC and CE achievements, arena rankings and everything else that's going away in the pre-patch, it seems unlikely that the now very standard 10-14 days warning goes down to 7 or 8 (as Monday would be the earliest they could announce at this point).
      The Channeling Mobs
      There have been several new reports of some very persistent casters channeling once more, as both the old controversial Xorothian Cultists and some new friends of theirs are at it again. Now this particular "channeling time is pointing to the patch/pre-patch/other important dates" theory has been debunked in the past, and several different mobs have been seen channeling pointing to random dates, so take this one with a giant grain of salt, but the new and old mobs are indeed channeling again and are pointing to October 6th and 7th (depending on is it's on US or EU servers).
      You can read about the Xorothian Cultists here, the new Shirakess Apprentice fellows here, and you can (and probably should) read the debunking thread from a few years ago here.

      The Reputation Buff
      As we've talked about before, the reputation buff is active through all of September and it seems a little strange/unlikely that it would remain active for only 2 days (or even 1 for EU) of the pre-patch arriving. Obviously this isn't that big a deal but it does point to the 6th and 7th being more likely as well, and at least we know the dates of the rep buff as a fact, unlike the above two reasons.
      Conclusion
      It's seeming very likely that we won't be getting the pre-patch on September 29th/30th, making Shadowlands' one of the shorter pre-expansion events, coming in at 3 weeks. Whether this has something to do with the controversial nature of the Scourge invasion event, which has been moved around the insane/difficult/slightly annoying/irrelevant scale an awful lot on the PTR, so perhaps Blizzard don't want it up for too long, or perhaps there's some technical issues or even just the need for more polish for the pre-patch itself, we might never know. What we do know is that the community is VERY eager to get into the pre-patch, with its fast leveling speeds, level squish, new player experience, invasion event and so much more.
      We can all still hope for the 29th/30th, but it's looking more and more likely October 6th/7th is the one.

      Currently on the Beta, something iffy is going on with Lava Burst. It's bugged in a weird way, allowing Elemental Shamans to can constantly spam the ability.
      Update: The bug is caused by the Windspeaker's Lava Resurgence Legendary Item effect, which triggers Ascendance on Lava Burst casts. Ascendance auto-casts Lava Burst on all active Flame Shock targets, and this can trigger a loop if you get lucky. Thanks to Bloodmallet for pointing out what's causing this!
      The bug seems to have something to do with the Primordial Wave, the Necrolord Covenant Ability, that spreads Lava Burst to nearby enemies affected by your Flame Shock.  

      Redditor Hakizu also posted a second video showcasing the bug during an Arena match. Warning, the video contains strong language.

      if you thought our boy Rextroy needs Corruption for his one-shots, you are wrong! In his latest video, Bloodthirst crits for 600K, and the combo is one of the more complicated ones by far and includes buff stacking, gear swapping, and PvP scaling.
      In the following paragraphs, Rextroy talks in depth on how to perform the devastating combo.

      Pirate's Day is once again upon us! Blizzard have posted an official preview of the activities for this year, and you can also check out our own guide here. Booty Bay is the place to be today, as the event has gone live and you can grab the achievement and have some fun roleplaying a pirate!
      Pirate's Day (source)
      Hoist sail and make way for Booty Bay because Pirate’s Day begins September 19!
      Bring Your Sea Shanty to Booty Bay
      Pirates have taken over the goblin town of Booty Bay and Captain DeMeza is recruiting any scurvy dog she can into her buccaneer ranks. Visit her or her henchmen in the capital cities if the pirate’s life is for you!
      Feeling out of place in Booty Bay without a proper costume? Don’t worry. /Dance one little jig with the Dread Captain DeMeza and she’ll be impressed enough to press you into her crew and outfit you properly. If you get attached to your new look, you can do the quest You’re Gonna Need a Bigger Boat! Succeed, and you’ll get an Emergency Pirate Outfit (or five) for when Pirate’s Day is but a distant memory and your inner pirate is clawing to get out.
      What good is a pirate without an avian companion on their shoulder? Captain DeMeza (for the exchange of a few shiny coins) can help you call forth a temporary companion named Petey to take with you wherever you sail.
      From time to time the captain will shout for a brave party to take on a terror of the deeps–an elite shark known as Ol’Eary. Make sure you have a hearty crew with you or you could become just so much chum in the waters of the bay.
      Join the Beach Party
      Once you and your crew have helped the captain handle Ol’Eary, you can celebrate with the crew at a little beach party just south of Booty Bay. Those with the Feat of Strength "Advast Ye, Admiral" can also purchase a toy from Edward Techt–the Jolly Roger to show off their dedication to the cause.
      If you’re really feeling generous, you can also purchase a Big Bag of Booty from Captain DeMeza and spread the wealth around to all your pirate pals in a burst of glittery glory.
