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.

      Ah yes, the World of Warcraft South Park episode. It spawned many memes and was a pretty big deal for WoW at the time, bringing it even further into the pop culture mainstream. It seems the episode still echoes in people's minds, as ianxplosion took it upon himself to reenact the boys' plan to level to (the then max) 60 killing only boars. Obviously this has only recently become possible with the old world level scaling changes in 7.3.5, and while he didn't only kill Elwynn Forest boars (even heading to Outland for a short while) he did stay true to the episode's ideals and dinged 60 a few days ago. 6 days played, a month and 19 thousand boars later, here's the clip of the final victory, and a longer section of the stream from the final day:


      Live to win indeed.
      And finally, just in case you aren't familiar with the episode in question, or just haven't watched in a while, here's the inspiration for ianxplosion's quest, and one of the better South Park episodes in general, Make Love, Not Warcraft:

      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 Elemental Shaman.

      The Nitty Gritty
      If you're intrigued, please check out our wiki on the <Karma Horde> subreddit. This will give you a deeper dive into the raid team.
