Two amazing feats as Antorus gets a bit of a reality check with double solos for Normal mode in one day! The expected one was Eonar as we've already seen the encounter defeated by two people and it was just a matter of time before an enterprising Warlock took it upon himself to do the deed alone - and it turns out it was Krieglocke that did it!

The less expected and far more insane of the two is the Garothi Worldbreaker Prot Paladin solo, as it took a crazy 8 hours and 11 minutes to kill! But let's get right to these amazing videos and hear what the soloers themselves have to say:

Well… This was a rather painful solo, and quite risky.

It appears Garothi Worldbreaker's Eradication, Fel Bombardment and Carnage got a limit of 60 yards range… And there is thankfully a place in the arena where you could stand that is further away than that! (It should probably get fixed)

Well there is a slight problem… Boss is in berserk and quite far away… way too far to reach with simple spells. So how will you possibly be able to hurt him without getting crushed into pieces?

Oh well good thing us Protection Paladins got a bunch of CDs to help us!... That’s right… CDS!

5 minute ones aswell… takes awhile…

This whole boss took 8 hours and 11 minutes to cheese down, and it was not faceroll either, having to pay attention all that time.

Can you imagine a single misstep? A bit too late Guardian of the Ancient Kings and he would be able to destroy you with a meele hit (he almost did at 10:57)… being a little careless with movement, or bubbling too early could also punish you severly.

At 6:30 you could see a misplay I did. I went too quickly back to the “safezone”, which lead to a bombardment hiting me, thankfully Aegis of Light got me covered (I knew there was a reason I picked that talent!)

DCs would also feel rather rough

Tactics:
ilvl: 963.
Traits: 79

So, the tactics are quite straightforward. But even then it is a real pain to do them for 8+ hours straight. You want to Ardent Defender, Avenging Wrath along with a trinket if you have one on the way to the boss. Drums can be used each second “rush”. The legendary “Chain of Thrayn” is VERY much recommended, so you are able to top yourself each Hand of the Protector. The legendary helmet Saruan’s Resolve is also recommended so you have 2 charges of your insta topping ability. When you are almost in meele range, use Guardian of the Ancient Kings so you will survive the meele combat. Get shield of the righteous going quickly, along with Eye of Tyr to increase your chance of survival. Make sure you get out of meele range quickly, before Guardian of the Ancient kings is gone, else you might fall to one of his meele hits (especially when he is below 20%, since he deals 40% more damage).

You need to save Divine Shield for Fel Bombardment. If you have the debuff on you, and he is in berserk it will deal about 100% of your HP each missile. Keep an eye on the debuff, it could come the moment you rush towards the boss or when you are about to leave. Oh and make sure that you are in the “safezone” quickly after Fel Bombardment is done, or he will put up another one on you within a few seconds.

At 60% HP and 20% HP he casts Apocalypse drive. Your damage taken will be very low during it, so if you have the Fel Bombardment buff kite it off… DO NOT BUBBLE IT! You need to save Divine Shield for the end of the Apocalypse Drive cast (since you won’t destroy any weapons, it will deal huge dmg). He gets a stacking dmg increase after each apocalypse drive. When he is below 20% he will therefore have 40% damage increase. This also works for his Annihiliator and Decimator weapons.

The Annihiliator and Decimator will keep hitting you during the encounter (they do not get a dmg boost from berserk tho, but they scale with the Apocalypse Drive dmg boost). I suggest using Aegis of Light for the annihilator right before you are about to rush. Since it will reduce the damage taken, which makes it go faster for you to top yourself with flash of lights.

Make sure you have 2 charges of Hand of the Protector ready once you rush in, you will need them.

I can't imagine spending over 8 hours on a sucessful kill. If it is dedication or insanity is a matter of debate, but it is impressive :P

The Warbreaker is nuts, I hope he doesn't have his account suspended or anything for exploiting that deadzone, it's an impressive testament to skill, timing and endurance regardless D: 

Eonar, lol. The Lootship of Legion.

      There's been some changes to the way Blizzard handle PvP disqualifications, specifically those from end of season rewards. Players that have been disqualified from receiving these rewards will also be unable to queue for rated matches in the same season. More details below:
      Season Disqualification (source)
      As part of our continued efforts to combat cheating and unfair play in World of Warcraft, we’ve recently made a change to our policies regarding PvP disqualifications.

      As of the Battle for Azeroth Pre-Patch, any player who is found to have engaged in unfair practices that result in their disqualification from end-of-season PvP rewards will also have their ability to queue for rated PvP matches immediately revoked. This restriction will continue through the remainder of the season in which they were disqualified, which includes the current “Post-Season” available until Battle for Azeroth launches.

      This change is intended to minimize the impact that disqualified players have on those who are playing legitimately while the PvP season continues, and is just one aspect of our ongoing commitment to upholding the competitive integrity of World of Warcraft PvP.

      We have the trifecta of hotfixes in three days, with today's bringing even more class tweaks, the cap for gold transfers upped to 1 million gold, enemy HP significantly reduced in EN, ToV, Nighthold and ToS, as well as the now standard quest, profession and dungeon bug fixes.
      July 20 (source)
      Classes
      Monk The Earth and Fire clone from Storm, Earth, and Fire should correctly mimic Rushing Jade Wind, regardless of the player’s target. Paladin Protection Fixed a bug preventing the Light’s Vanguard Battleplate 4-piece bonus from activating and deactivating as intended. Fixed an issue where Consecration occasionally failed to provide its self-buff. Rogue Assassination Fixed a bug where Blindside was not learnable until level 40. Warlock Demonology The Command Demon version of Spell Lock can no longer be cast without a target. Demonic Calling can now correctly be activated by casting Demonbolt.

      Characters at level 110 and above may now move up to 1,000,000 gold when performing a Character Transfer.  
      Creatures and NPCs
      Fixed a visual bug that caused some characters to lose the tops of their heads.  
       Dungeons and Raids
      The health and damage of all enemies in Emerald Nightmare, Trial of Valor, The Nighthold, and Tomb of Sargeras has been significantly reduced. The experience awarded on completion of a random dungeon has been increased. Antorus, the Burning Throne Fixed a bug preventing Death's Advance from functioning correctly in certain encounter situations, such as Aggramar’s Flame Rend. Eye of Azshara Damage dealt by Lightning Strike, Warlord Parjesh’s Crashing Wave, and Quicksand have been significantly reduced. The Nexus Chaotic Energy Bursts from Chaotic Rifts no longer inflict excessive damage. Obsidian Sanctum Sartharion’s Large Satchel of Spoils should again contain loot.

They will return to their former function in a future patch.

      Professions
      Fishing Fixed a bug that caused the wrong sound when casting.  
      Quests
      Fixed a bug with the reputation bonus on completion of "Death to Agogridon". If you previously completed the quest, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive your reward. The talking quest NPC should no longer appear for players who are nearby, but are not the Hunter on “Never Hunt Alone”. Players should again be able to complete “All Charged Up”.

      You can reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Patch 8.0.1. A bug prevented players that have already completed the questline to get reputation boost. Luckily, this has been fixed by Blizzard in North America and a hotfix will be up soon in Europe as well. The fix requires a server restart.
      Both reputations count toward the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement that rewards "the Esteemed" title and a mount (Pureheart Courser). You can find more details about how to start the questline here. If you completed Death to Agogridon before the pre-patch, speak to Karnum Marshweaver in Desolace to receive the reputation boost.

      Players continue to discover hidden perks of the 8.0 pre-patch. Redditor fgmenth noticed that it's possible to reach Exalted reputation standing with the Gelkis and Magram Clan Centaurs in Desolace.
      Update: A hotfix went live that allows players to directly talk to Marnum Marshweaver in Desolace after having completed Death to Agogridon. Check out this post for more details.

      The cool thing is that you only need to complete a couple of quests to get to Exalted and both factions count toward the new 100 Exalted Reputations that rewards "the Esteemed" title and the Pureheart Courser mount.

      Quest Chain
      Maraudine Prisoner Manifest is needed to start the quest chain and the item drops from Maraudine Maulers in Desolace. You need to complete some quests in order for it to drop, more details can be found here. Completing the final quest will give you enough reputation with both factions to instantly reach Exalted.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas answered your Battle for Azeroth questions today. Check out our roundup of the latest Live Developer Q&A!
      Q&A Highlights
      NA servers are briefly down for maintenance. Ion apologizes for 8.0.1, it was not the smoothest of pre-patch launches. "Players deserve better." They're working to bring Communities back. They completely overhauled the squish mechanism this time around so that they can bring down numbers with the press of a button instead of just scaling everything down manually. There are many issues with scaling, leading to mobs one-shotting you and various other bugs. The team's working around the clock to fix bugs and appreciate constructive feedback! When they fix a single bug, it can affect content that's several expansions old. If you earned Mage Tower appearances on one character, you'll be able to equip it on a second character of the same Class. No intent whatsoever to nerf Dungeon experience. The "weekly reward" is a visual bug. Warlock caster / idle animations are still in the works. Legacy Loot System won't apply to Legion raids in Battle for Azeroth at level 120. Personal Loot will be used for that, but if you're soloing Legion raid content, you'll receive loot as if you were in a 10-player group. The system was always intended for content 11+ levels higher. Mythic mounts should be tradable with Personal Loot. Azerite Armor is untradable in Battle for Azeroth. A piece of Azerite shoulders that's being looked at by multiple Classes has a different set of Azerite traits for each of them and they don't want you to give it to the Class that has the best traits on it. There shouldn't be a single best comp for all affixes. Mythic+ Seasons affect end-game rewards, so they want to align them with new raid tiers and PvP Seasons. In Battle for Azeroth, there will be Seasonal affixes activating at Keystone level 10. The first Seasonal affix will retire with the release of a new raid tier when they'll introduce a new one. Do we need a squish in every other expansion? Power progression is important for the game and there are too many tiers of progression and the high item level is what it takes for rewards to feel consistently rewarding. In BfA, players will begin to reach 10K DPS (as in Wrath). They didn't intend to increase the difficulty of Legacy content and old raids. Blizzard standardized camera anchor points for all Classes. When you start scrolling, you'll notice that the camera points to a point just above your head. No more claustrophobic camera snapping for Gnomes and Goblins! No plans to update traits on Underlight Angler for BfA. It's tied to Legion. Artifacts will override what you wear in your off-hand. They want to develop more customization options though. Azerite traits will have more depth throughout BfA. The vast majority of traits we've seen so far include less complex traits on leveling gear and feel lackluster. It's possible that a Mage Tower type of solo content will return in Battle for Azeroth. VoD
