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.

Congrats to both players and great job, especially on the Garothi one for even thinking of doing it, let alone actually executing the strat!

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.

      Update: It seems Limit will be returning to Horde once their faction transfer cooldown expires, so we won't be seeing an epic Alliance vs. Horde showdown in the race after all, they just popped in on the blue side for some loot. Since they'll be transferring back before the reset they won't be getting net week's PvP ilvl 400 item, however, it seems there's another ilvl 400 in the mix as the Alliance Darkshore Warfront quest is up as well, so their total will stay at two.
      ___________________________________________________________
      The pre-race preparation war has already started and has been turned up a notch, as Limit have faction transferred to Alliance in order to get the benefit from the Against Overwhelming Odds quest that, as of this reset, will reward an item level 400 piece of gear each week. The 30% buff to Artifact Power gains isn't that relevant, as most top raiders will have already gotten to the level 42 point necessary without it, although it could help some stragglers that took the grind a bit less hardcore.
      The Limit GM commented on the matter, stating that they only used gold to buy transfers, and other sources say it was only 51 characters that were transferred.
      Limit have said in the past that they'd go extra hard at it in this particular raid race, as they're taking more time off work to compete (aka going at it on the same level as Method and other guilds) and, unlike Method and Exorsus, they will not be streaming their progress, keeping their tactics to themselves. As you'll remember, Limit were extremely close to getting the World First in Uldir, missing out only due to them extending their lockout since they thought they could down G'huun with the gear they already had. If you want to go more in-depth on the discussion surrounding the transfer, head on over to the reddit page where, as you'd expect, MANY opinions were oh-so subtly shared.
      So, it would seem that we will have a genuine Horde versus Alliance face-off in the race to world first in Battle of Dazar'alor, as the top two guilds find themselves on opposing factions. What's more, we may even see an Alliance endboss World First, which hasn't happened since Dragon Soul and the Madness of Deathwing encounter (taken down by Korean guild KIN Raiders).
      Weird fact: the only other two Alliance endboss WFs are also on dragons, with Halion in Ruby Sanctum (which doesn't really count as the raid was a bit of a joke) and Nefarian back in the original Blackwing Lair!
      It seems the incentive Blizzard has introduced for people to play Alliance has paid off, at least in terms of top-guild representation, unless of course Limit transfer back at a later date. In any case, the Battle of Dazar'alor Mythic progression race is already exciting and it hasn't even started yet!

      There's a new patch in town so the hotfixes are flowing. Today we see a Jani achievement tweak and some more bug fixes in the new raid, multiple rewards now going by spec instead of class (weapon caches, emissary armor and faction assaults), PvP changes that make certain Gladiator effects dispellable and more.
      January 23 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Battle of Dazar’alor The achievement Can I Get a Hek Hek Hek Yeah? now requires all members of the raid click on the Mysterious Trashpile before the fight starts to receive Jani's Favor, and then complete the existing criteria for the achievement. Fixed a bug that prevented some players from receiving the achievement The Hidden Dragon on Normal difficulty. Fixed an issue that sometimes caused Arcane Torrent to remain available when changing factions. Items
      Emissary armor, weapon caches, and rewards from faction assaults now reward the item by loot specialization. These were previously rewarded by class. Player versus Player
      Sinister Gladiator’s Safeguard’s shield now has a duration of 6 seconds (was 10 seconds), and can now be dispelled. Dread/Sinister Gladiator’s Emblem now has a duration of 20 seconds (was 15 seconds). Sinister Gladiator Maledict’s heal absorption can now be dispelled. Xalziax’s Veiled Eye’s shield can now be dispelled. Developers’ note: With the start of Battle for Azeroth Season 2, we introduced two new trinkets that are acquired via PvP, Sinister Gladiator’s Maledict and Sinister Gladiator’s Safeguard. In agreement with feedback we’ve been receiving, we’ve made a few changes to these items so that they provide more of an opportunity for counterplay when encountering enemy teams using these trinkets. We’ll continue to keep an eye on the strength of these trinkets as the season progresses. Professions
      Season 2 crafted Engineering goggles should now refund Tidalcores or Breath of Bwonsamdi and Expulsom when scrapped. Quests
      Fixed an issue where Alliance players who had faction transferred to Horde could not see Nathanos in Dalaran to accept "The Warchief Beckons". Nazgrim is once again available in Grommash Hold in Orgrimmar for Horde players on the questing experience to unlock Pandaria. World Quests
      Faction Assault World Quests now properly give credit for the Weekly Quest "The World Awaits". Pets should now summon and path correctly on Airships during Faction Assaults. Previous hotfixes.

      There's more new content coming in, both on and off the live servers, as the 8.1.5 PTR just got an update as well. We're getting many new quests from the War Campaign to Magni's (probably woon-related) future and the Hunter Hati quest, in addition to the Brawler's Guild opening up. There's also two new micro-holidays up for test: Wanderer's Festival and Free T-Shirt day, as well as class and racial ability changes.
      8.1.5 PTR January 23 (source)
      We’re updating the PTR with a new build today, and with it comes several new things to test.
      Many new quests are now ready. These include questlines for the Alliance and Horde War Campaigns, Magni’s future, and Hunters’ reunion with Hati.
      The new Brawler’s Guild is now open for testing. There’s more to Brawler’s Guild this time around, with a mysterious new questline that’s slightly different for Alliance and Horde, in addition to the challenging fights.
      We’re also set to take a look at two new micro-holidays: Wanderer’s Festival and Free T-Shirt Day. Please note that these may not be turned on at all times on the PTR.
      Hunters should now see a visual on their target when they slow it with Concussive Shot. Marksmanship Hunters will see an improvement to Explosive Shot: it now explodes at the target’s location after 3 seconds, even if the target dies before the explosion.
      Several class teleport spells have been updated to be better at returning you to a spot that is much closer to where you expect them to. The spells updated are Teleport: Moonglade, Zen Pilgrimage, Dreamwalk, and Death Gate.
      This week, the PTR also has some updates to the new Allied Races. For Zandalari Trolls, Pterrordax Swoop no longer shares a cooldown with Goblin Glider, and all of the Zandalari embraces have been tuned down significantly. Both new Allied Races now start with riding trained (like other Allied Races), and Shaman should now see their racial totems on their character selection screen.
      Thanks again for testing with us.

      Update: We have a tweet from the devs clarifying the 50% nerf to Azerite traits in PvP, noting that it supercedes all previous individual nerfs:
      _____________________________________________
      Original post:
      Here come the first hotfixes of the new patch (which, for some reason, isn't patch 8.1.5, or 8.1.1 for that matter...) featuring a flat 50% nerf to ALL Azerite traits in PvP, Mythic+ changes in the form or Fortified and Bolster affixes not affecting Reaping ghosts and the Motherlode getting some enemy forces tweaks, as well as some invisibility potion changes.
      January 22 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Fortified and Bolster will no longer increase the health of the Reaping ghosts. The MOTHERLODE!! Fixed an issue causing Venture Co. Earthshapers to count double towards Enemy Forces criteria on Mythic Keystone difficulties. Slightly reduced the total Enemy Forces count. Items
      Potions that grant the player Invisibility (such as Demitri's Draught of Deception ) now place a 5-minute cooldown on all other potion types (was 10 minutes). The shared cooldown time for invisibility potions remains 10 minutes. Fixed a bug that prevented Tome of Town Portal from being properly affected by Seafarer’s Hearth. Player versus Player
      Every portion of Azerite powers that scale with item level have been reduced by 50% in PvP. Developers’ notes: This addresses how the additional new ring of traits affects power in PvP. The change includes all spec- and class-specific traits, as well as all multi-class traits, regardless of which ring they’re on. This change also overwrites all previous reductions to Azerite Traits in PvP that occurred during Season 1, as they will all now have their reduction set to 50% effectiveness. Non-scaling and non-stacking effects are unaffected by this adjustment. Resolved an issue that caused Sinister Gladiator's Maledict to not strike enemy players who have moved out of line of sight after the initial activation of the trinket. Quests
      Players on "The Lord Admiral's Lament " while on the Saurfang questline should now be able to see Isabella. “Quartermaster's Bounty ”, in which you turn in 10 Quartermaster's Coins to get a Battleborn Sigil, is now a weekly repeatable quest.  
      Previous hotfixes.

      Wildcard Gaming finished up the Battle of Dazar'alor, downing Jaina Proudmoore World First on Heroic and crossed the finish line on 9/9 bosses down! It's a Horde first kill, which usually isn't that relevant, but since this raid has a particular faction-themed bent it's slightly more so. The speed of the kill was expected, as pretty much all Heroic endbosses die on the first day. The real race starts next week and we'll have plenty of content to enjoy, between Method and Exorsus streams, our own daily race recaps and the live progress coverage over at Method's raid race site as well.

      And here's the video of the kill:
