Uldir Race Day 6: Method Catch Up, Mythrax Video

Recommended Posts

While we've already covered the biggest events of today in an update to the previous summary, we'll just go over them again and add the few other things that happened as well. The big news is that Method caught up to Limit, but it did take them a fair amount of time to do so. Now, the numbers here are a bit iffy, since we'd have to count sleep hours and rest into it, but just as a frame of reference, Limit got Mythrax down 1 day and 8 hours after Zul while it took Method 1 day and 22 hours for the same feat. Now, even if you figure some 8 hours sleep in there for Method, as Mythrax died before Limit went to sleep, that's still a 6 hour quicker kill for the US guild. It really seems Limit is pulling out all the stops on this one and it's down to G'huun to determine who will come out on top. We also got Limit's Mythrax the Unraveler killshot:

The other news of the day is a pretty big comeback from Exorsus, who were hanging out around spots 4-7 during the race, but they kicked it up a notch and got Mythrax World 3rd, EU 2nd! For reference, it took them 1 day and 6 hours to down the boss after their Zul kill, but again, tracking when which guild took their breaks and how long they slept gets a little tricky. But it does seem Method may have been struggling just a little on Mythrax, or perhaps in Uldir in general, but we'll see what happens come the endboss kill.

And here's the stream cut of Method's Mythic Mythrax the Unraveler World 2nd kill:



The number of guilds that got past Zul, Reborn rose to 16, with Honestly, Alpha, FatSharkYes, ScrubBusters, Future, and Aversion, as well as Alpha getting the Asia 3rd. That's 13 guilds now progressing on Mythrax, trying to tie it up with the top 3 and get access to G'huun and the final rankings.

The number of guilds on 5/8 aka the Fetid Devourer fanclub, is the smallest after the top 3, with only 4 members, followed by the 76-strong 4/8, 171-strong 3/8, 643-strong 2/8 and finally, the 1158-strong 1/8 group! The race continues today as we get closer and closer to that second reset, and if G'huun makes it that far, he'll be the first endboss to do so since Cataclysm and Nefarian in Blackwing Descent!

It'll be particularly interesting to follow Method's streams now as they're progressing on the final boss of Mythic Uldir, so head on over there if you're interested.

Interesting to look at setups. Limit used 5 healer 3 tank and 5 rogue, what is pretty weird again, Method also needed 5 healers, but already can take him down with 2 tanks, Russians did with 4 warlock 3 mage and also 5 healers. I think the most guilds will be have a lot of setup problem at this boss.

Gotta admit, I'm amazed this raid lasted as long as it did! Still, with the whole Devourer misshap it appears to be a challenging raid after all.

Not sure "length of time lasted" means anything with an admitted "mathmatically unkillable" boss holding things up as it did.

To be fair, it was only unkillable for around a day. Also not sure which length of time lasted you're referring to, as the time mentioned in the article is for the latter bosses only, Fetid isn't a factor in those numbers at all.

      This week's bonus event is Burning Crusade Timewalking! Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons for the weekly quest to receive a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City.
      Timewalking dungeons drop item level 425 loot. You can get item level 445 loot from Black Temple Timewalking. You can obtain Arsenal: The Warglaives of Azzinoth on your Demon Hunter if you earned the Warglaives of Azzinoth prior. Reins of the Infinite Timereaver has a small chance to drop from all Timewalking bosses as Personal Loot. Blizzard (Source)
      ILLIDAN AWAITS
      Head to Outland to face Illidan and his cohorts once more in The Black Temple!
      The Black Temple raid is available throughout the Burning Crusade Timewalking event. The difficulty is set to Normal and, like any Normal level raid, will not be available through Raid Finder. To take on this challenge, you’ll need to get your guild or a group of friends together, or head to Group Finder > Premade Groups. The raid scales for your group size (between 10 — 30 players) and your level and gear will be scaled back to match the raid’s challenges.
      Want to relive the time you first defeated Teron Gorefiend? Face (face, face) the Reliquary of Souls once more? Witness the showdown between Maiev and Illidan before the final fight? Now’s your chance. Inside you can earn transmog sets, the pets you need for Raiding With Leashes III, a Music Roll: The Burning Legion, and gear drops. And for Demon Hunters, there’s the enticing possibility of obtaining the legendary Warglaives of Azzinoth. Are you, this time, prepared?
      DUNGEONS IN THE BURNING CRUSADE TIMEWALKING
      All week, open Group Finder (default hotkey: i) and then select Dungeon Finder and Timewalking in the Type dropdown. When you hit ‘Find Group’, you’ll be matched up with other players and sent to one of the following Heroic dungeons:
      The Arcatraz The Black Morass Magister’s Terrace Mana-Tombs Shattered Halls The Slave Pens Your character and items will be scaled down to a power level fitting for the challenge at hand, but bosses will yield loot appropriate for your natural level. Timewalking dungeons also have a chance to drop items that usually drop when you run them on Heroic, and you’ll earn reputation with a faction that is interested in the dungeon. For example, when you Timewalk through The Slave Pens, you’ll earn reputation with the Cenarion Expedition, which could open access to purchasing the Cenarion War Hippogryph mount.
      Look for the following all week long:
      Chronicler Shoopa in Zuldazar or Chronicler Toopa in Boralus has a quest for you has a quest for you. Or, if you forget to pick it up there, you can start it from within the Adventure Journal. Quest requirement: Complete 5 Timewalking dungeons. Rewards: Artifact Power and one loot box containing a piece of gear from Normal difficulty Ny'alotha, the Waking City. EVERY WEEK
      The Bonus Events system consists of a rotating schedule of different activities, currently scheduled to run each week beginning on Tuesdays. Each Bonus Event grants a passive bonus to a particular game activity and offers a once-per-event quest with a noteworthy reward for accomplishing a related goal. The in-game calendar can serve as your one-stop reference for the event schedule. The Adventure Guide also offers a direct link to active Bonus Events, allowing you to easily accept any associated quests.

      To prevent players from quickly killing world bosses, Blizzard recently added spawn protection for Nalak and Rukhmar, meaning the bosses will be immune to damage for a few seconds after they are attacked so that more players can tag them.
      Similar to Sha of Anger (Reins of the Heavenly Onyx Cloud Serpent) and Galleon (Son of Galleon's Saddle), spawn protection has been enabled for Nalak and Rukhmar.
      Nalak can be found in Isle of Thunder (Pandaria) and has a chance to drop Reins of the Thundering Cobalt Cloud Serpent.
      "This is a descendant of the irascible Nalak. Lightning erupts from its scales and arcs over the saddle. Dare you sit?"

      Rukhmar can be found in Spires of Arak (Draenor) and has a small chance to drop Solar Spirehawk.
      "Looking into the eyes of this mystical beast is like peering into the heart of the sun. Goggles are recommended when you're riding."

      Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorms on Mythic difficulty after they buffed the drop rate to two mounts per run. As a result, she has been reverted to only drop 1 mount until the underlying issue gets fixed.
      Blizzard is currently investigating a bug that affects Mythic Jaina in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid and she now only drops one Glacial Tidestorm until further notice.
      Customer Support won't be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted, according to the official support page.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We should have received two mounts after today's hotfix, however after we kill Jaina we receive no mount at all.
      We identified an issue were Lady Jaina Proudmoore was not dropping any Glacial Tidestorm mounts on Mythic difficulty. She has been reverted to now drop only 1 mount again while the underlying issue is investigated.

      Customer Support will not be granting additional mounts while the drop rate is reverted.
      In the latest round of hotfixes, Blizzard buffed the drop rate of Glacial Tidestorm and Ny'alotha Allseer to two per run, because it took up to 20 weeks for a full Mythic group to get the mounts for each member. You can find more details here.

      Redditor Arang_Choi is back with two more recreations of Warcraft lore icons in Minecraft, after his Lich King one we've already covered. We get to see how Illidan, Ragnaros and Deathwing were made in their truly massive scope (or megabuilds, as they're called), and they're really impressive.
      While I'd say Ragnaros came out the best of the three, Illidan is really great as well, even coming off a little Protoss/Zeratul-y with the low details in his face - or maybe he's just wearing a Defias mask:
      Ragnaros is his old fiery self, but it seems this version is post-Molten Core, as some raiders have taken Sulfuras from him and/or doused it in a whole lot of Eternal Quintessence!
      Deatwing is appropriately gigantic, and maybe we can get him and the Stormwind recreation together to re-enact the ending of the Cataclysm intro cutscene.

      Which one is your favorite?
