Antorus M Progress Day 1: 9 Down 2 to Go

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.

9 out of 11 already? I don't know whether to be impressed or disappointed. Ah well, at least Argus will look cool when they get there.

      There's a new PTR build up, bringing with it Ulduar Timewalking and an even larger focus on the new 1-100 level scaling mechanics. Blizzard are asking for help in testing the questlines in some specific zones as well, so get on there and test!
      Build 25700 (source)
      This week, we’ve implemented a new build that primarily brings bugfixes to the PTR. Our biggest focus for testing remains the new level 1-100 zone and dungeon scaling we’re introducing with 7.3.5. This is an extensive change to how loot, quests, and creatures work in the open world, so we continue to look for as much feedback as we can get about how things are working out.
      Thank you so much for all of the feedback you’ve provided so far on leveling in Azeroth. We hope you keep the feedback coming, and we’d like to ask you to especially focus some of your testing on the questlines in these specific zones:
       Blade's Edge Mountains
       Duskwood
       Hellfire Peninsula
       Icecrown
       Kun-Lai Summit
       Nagrand
       Storm Peaks
       Terokkar Forest
       Vashj'ir
       Wetlands
      Feedback on the difficulty, pacing, and most importantly, any bugs you might find while completing quests in the above zones would be most helpful. Please post your level scaling feedback here.
      We now have Ulduar Timewalking available for testing, and it should be available for the next four days or so. Please post Ulduar Timewalking feedback here.
      Also, a heads up—We’re planning a scheduled playtest of the new Seething Shore PvP Battleground. Get ready to Play With The Blues on the PTR on Tuesday, December 19 from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. PST. The Seething Shore is a 10v10 race to gather Azerite on an island near Silithus, and we hope you’ll be able to join us there and test it thoroughly on Tuesday.
      As always, thank you very much for participating in the PTR!

      The latest information about Patch 7.3.2 and beyond!
      Patch 7.3.2 went live this week and we compiled a hub with all important information.
      Welcome to our latest Patch 7.3.2 hub. We will keep it updated with latest news and hotfixes, so that you won't miss out on any important information! Our class guides have been updated for the latest patch.
      Patch 7.3.2
      Instead of releasing Patch 7.3.5, Blizzard went with the odd numbering and released Patch 7.3.2. Main goal of the patch are bug fixes and tuning in preparation for Legion's last raid Antorus, the Burning Throne. In addition to that, the patch introduced a new Primal Sargerite vendor and some exiciting lore details have been entirely omitted from the official patch notes for obvious reasons.
      Official Patch Notes Legion Live Developer Q/A with Ion Hazzikostas (October 5) Primal Sargerite Vendor Patch 7.3.2 Hotfixes
      The following hotfixes have been applied to live servers so far:

      Legion's last raid tier will open at a later time, probably after BlizzCon 2017. Here's a collection of all articles about the raid that we covered thus far:
