It seems all it takes to finish Antorus' fifth boss is one Prot Paladin and one Affliction Warlock! While most of the fights, aside from Argus were slightly too easy in Mythic for the top guilds, it seems Normal mode is pretty easy for everyone else as well, as demonstrated by Demo (963 ilev) and Darmonevil (959 ilev).

First I want to say good job.

Second I want to say, and this is why Blizzard has trouble balancing the game.

 

I forget the DH tank's name that solo'd all those Mythics and Mythic +'s, and while that is an extraordinary feat, as is this with just a prot pally and Aff lock, it goes to show that when Blizzard tries to make things a bit easier people will take advantage of it.  This in turn makes it look like Blizzard has no clue what they are doing.

I'm not trying to take anything away from anyone that has solo'd current content (or duo'd)  I just want people to understand that the more this type of thing is done the harder it is for Blizzard to balance the game.

That would be Mione, who has been solo-ing stuff since Mists of Pandaria (or longer ago), on a DK and now DH.

Thanks, I thought it was that I just didn't remember how to spell it and didn't want to mess it up.  and Mione is a bit of an exception, all of the content that Mione has soloed this expansion has been a bit over-geared for it, not to the point it's just stupid easy but not soloing at current content ilvl.  And I guess that's the thing with the duo Eonar kill is that they were both over-geared for it.  And like I said i'm not trying to take anything away from anyone that is willing to attempt and achieve a feat such as these, more power to them for trying, it's more that most of the subscriber base is willing to do.  I just feel like Blizzard kind of takes a stance (could be completely wrong about this) that when people solo things like this they feel it's too easy and want to make it more difficult which in turn makes it harder for those that are trying to progress on it.  I hope that's not the case though.

No offense, but calling Mione overgeared isn't quite right: https://blizzardwatch.com/2017/07/25/mione-solos-court-stars-19/
I at least wouldn't say that anyone is really overgearing votw +17 or cots +19 currently.

But I do agree of it being not easy to balance the boss fights right and there's most of the time someone coming out on the short end, but that's why there are currently 4 raid difficulties to make it at least easier to balance out, which still needs the proper tuning for sure, but there also have been many difficulty specific fixes in the past, which wouldn't be possible otherwise and does show, at least I think so, that the difficulties are mostly tunned to those they are intended for (e.g. normal not for mythic raiders, but those doing normal "progress").

There's no way I would call Mione overgeared for a +19 or +17, or hell even a +15 solo.  But at the time that she soloed the +3 VotW her ilvl was 893 equipped which  at that time was overgeared for it.  

 Does that take anything away from her skill? Not at all because she has done what most people would run for the hills after contemplating.  I know that I couldn't do what she's done.  I don't have the patience to push myself that far.

 

I do agree that raids are tuned for "progressive" tiers of guilds.  Normal guilds will never progress to mythic because that's not where they want to be or they are not willing to push themselves that far.  Even some Heroic guilds are the same.  

 

I just hope that Blizzard can find a good balance between the mythic raiders that solo normal content and the normal raiders that struggle with heroic bosses.

      No more Battle Chests or purchasing previous expansions, all you need is an active subscription!
      Well, no one has to to buy base WoW anymore, ever! Everything you need to do to play up until the upcoming expansion, Battle for Azeroth, is an active subscription. No more battle chests and individual purchases, just pay that monthly fee and access the entire game as it is at the moment, with nothing missing until August 14th, when you'll have to buy BfA for the new content. Additional digital deluxe items from each expansion are available at the Blizzard shop individually, but it's now easier than ever to jump into the game and just start playing.
      Recruit a Friend has also been updated:

      We found a cutscene with Vol'jin that presumably takes place after players defeat Blood God G'huun in Battle for Azeroth or at the end of the Zandalar Forever Scenario. This article contains spoilers.
      Now, remember this is an Old God expansion and we can't be exactly sure if it's really the good old Vol'jin or some sort of illusion that we're dealing with here.
      In the cutscene, Spirit of Vol'jin tells Princess Talanji to become the leader of her people and show them some sort of blade that was possibly used to kill G'huun. It's interesting to see that King Rastakhan does not appear here, suggesting he might be dead and it might be the right time for Princess Talanji to take over. The cutscene is a throwback to to the Black Panther movie. Credit to LeystTV for the video.
      Transcript
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem, leader of Zandalar. Show da blade to those dat need to see it da most. Give dem peace. 
      Princess Talanji: Dis was not my achievement.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya brought de champion to dese shores against ya father's will. Ya learned da secrets of G'huun when no one be listenin'.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Ya set in motion what be needed ta save ya people. Now, more than ever, dey be callin' for a leader dey can love and trust.
      Spirit of Vol'jin: Show dem da blade. Become da symbol dey need.
      Princes Talanji: Behold de blood of G'huun. By his will were borne de deaths of Shadra, Hi'reek, Torga, and ...and Rezan.
      Princess Talanji: By his will were borne de deaths of so many of our brothers and sisters.
      Princess Talanji: Let dis glaive be displayed as a reminder dat no matter how far we fall, no matter how much we lose, we are Zandalari! We adapt, we find a way to survive!
      Princess Talanji: If it were not for dis hero of de Horde, our losses would have been far worse. DIs proves, more than ever, dat it is time for us to adapt, to become part of de world again.
      Princess Talanji: Zandalar forever!

      The patch is now live on EU, NA and AU servers, after some difficulties with offline realms and connectivity issues, so Blizzard have shared some known issues as well as some additional info on upcoming hotfixes for BoA legendary acquisition via Wakening Essences and the honor/prestige level changes.
      Known Issues (source)
      Hello all,
      Below is a list of known issues for patch 8.0.1. Please note that this list is not a complete depiction of what we're aware of, but a sampling of issues we believe players may encounter more often. We'll try to keep this updated with trending issues when possible.
      General
      Mounts: Gladiator's Proto-Drakes do not display information on how to obtain mounts in journal.
      Sometimes when summoning a player as they change zones, the summon prompt will not appear.
      Stat & Spell Squish Impacts
      There are multiple issues with legacy spells & monsters scaling incorrectly.
      Dungeon and Raid
      Legacy Loot: Many raid creatures no longer drop gold.
      Highmaul: Highmaul bosses are not dropping the appropriate amount of gold when the raid is set to mythic.Dungeon Journal - Baradin Hold: There exists an option to view Baradin Hold in 10/25 man Heroic even though the difficulty does not exist.
      A Lua error may occur if you try viewing the dungeon journal from the bonus roll prompt while outside of the instance.
      Communities/Guilds/Groups/UI
      Communities will reference "Starter Edition" accounts as "Veteran Trial".
      Guild: Inviting players who are currently in your group to a guild may produce an assertion.
      Opening the Character Pane after equipping a newly acquired item on a character may result in a crash.
      Looting the corpse after a boss encounter while in a group may produce an assertion.
      Communities: Blank spaces will appear in Guild rosters if players have not logged in for multiple years.
      Players may be unable to whisper cross realm when selecting whisper from Communities UI.
      Compatibility
      DX12: Intel PSO caching issue with Intel unreleased driver.
      DX12: Crash may occur when game uses more GPU Memory than hardware allows.
      Performance on some GPUs while using DX12 is lower than DX11.
      And here are some previous tweets we already covered, so you're up to date on everything in case you missed it, featuring Allied Race unlock requirements, Brawler's Guild currency conversion and Mythic mounts:

      The worldwide release of the pre-patch has not gone as smoothly as Blizzard would have liked and the Communities feature had to be completely disabled in Europe for now.
      Check out the list of known issues for problems that emerged after launch.

      Hi everyone,

      So, as you’ve noticed, today’s patch release has not gone nearly as smoothly as we would have liked. We’re sorry for how this has affected the stability and playability of the game while these issues have been ongoing. This has obviously not been the launch that any of us wanted.

      That said, we want you to know that there are currently several teams of people working hard to get you back in Azeroth and enjoying the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch as quickly as possible. We’ll share more details in this thread when we can.

      Thanks for your patience,

      The World of Warcraft Team Blizzard's working on a fix to enable the WoW Communities feature in EU. The in-game and guild chat channels remain are still available for use.

      As we work to identify the cause of these issues, we will be temporarily disabling the World of Warcraft Communities feature. The in-game and guild chat channels will still be available for use. The Guild Calendar may also be missing events while we address these concerns.
