Wyrmrest Accord Guild Achieves Realm First Kil'Jaeden Mythic, Disbands Afterwards

Recommended Posts

You read that title correctly: we may be almost two months into Battle for Azeroth, but a guild managed to down the notorious end boss from the penultimate raiding tier of Legion only yesterday.

The Feat of Strength was achieved by  <realm first btw> 1 year and 3 months after the release of Mythic Tomb of Sargeras. The guild proceeded to disband afterwards, although -  according to a comment on Reddit - it was originally created with the sole purpose of achieving this realm first kill. They even shared their nerd screams for this great achievement on Twitch.

Wyrmrest Accord is one of the most well-known RP servers on the US. Players are obviously not that focused on the competitive aspect of the game, but there's still some raiding presence. Five guilds have cleared Mythic Antorus and four guilds are currently on 2 out of 8 bosses on Mythic Uldir.

Kil'Jaeden was the only boss that had gotten away. The first guild on Tier 20 killed Mythic Fallen Avatar two weeks before the release of Antorus and it seems that afterwards nobody bothered with clearing Tomb of Sargeras.

Wowprogress still hasn't updated with the KJ kill - if it ever does, given that it was done by a disbanded guild

We all remember what a pleasant walkover of a boss Kil'Jaeden was on Mythic difficulty. The big bad guy, thanks to whom the "mathematically impossible" meme became relevant again, remained alive for 19 days when first released. It took Method 3 resets and 654 wipes to achieve the Kil'Jaeden world first, making it one of the hardest bosses in WoW's history.

Yea, even clearing the raid on Normal difficulty was a pain the keester. I remembered trying to pug Heroics and I just kinda gave up on Heroic Tomb once the pug groups I join keep hitting walls. If only my school/work schedule made it easy on which i can raid with an actual guild...

Wasn't C'thun the one who spawned that phrase? If I remember correctly, it might have even been Ion who came to that conclusion.

ToS was the most fun mythic raid in this game for me, I'm loved every progress there and was my favorite the Maiden where now every second pug can fail in 360 x ) Avatar and KJ was a killer, guild-breaking bosses but the mechanics was just aahw, so cool. I miss ToS so much!

Ah, you are probably right - I wasn't playing back then but I remember it now. Then again, the term meme didn't exist back in ye olde C'thun days ?

I heard the term used for Yogg-Saron 25 with no keepers as well.

Hi! I figured I'd give a little bit of history on Fallen Avatar and big bad ol' KJ himself.

The guild I was co-leading mostly had people that were in their late 20s to early 30s. We wanted to aim for KJ, but during Fallen Avatar progress, we ended up hitting Blizzcon and attendance became a rough topic for us. We would miss multiple raid nights at a time simply because people just had no choice but to focus on real life and with Wyrmrest Accord not really having much of a recruitment pool, we didn't exactly have an overflowing roster. At one point, we actually went almost two weeks without getting a pull in on Fallen Avatar, simply because the timing of when this raid hit us.

When we finally reached KJ, we had decided it just wasn't worth the stress to continue progressing on him. We managed to make it past the first intermission and push into phase 2, but people were already burnt. We wanted a break for Antorus so we all agreed with how things were going, it was probably best to just focus our time on relaxing before we had to immediately rush into new content. Funnily enough, Antorus for us ended with a guild sitting at -exactly- 100th US.

Rag was first, but C'thun was more famous because he was hilariously OP.

He wasn‘t just hilariously OP but absolutely unkillable.

And by that I mean that people have done simulations proving that the perfect raid setup wearing the best available gear and playing their class and the fight without a single flaw couldn‘t down the boss.

It was, in fact, mathematically impossible.

Interestingly enough, one of the the first people to determine this was Ion, back when he was a raid leader for Elitist Jerks in 06. He posted on their forum board about the raid needing to do a combined 240k DPS which was theoretically doable, but impossible in practice due to how the fight was set up. Because of this, I found it kind of ironic when he admitted that MFetid was mathematically impossible.

 

The next major boss that was impossible to kill was KT, although that was mostly due to how bugged his fight was. Between dead adds not dropping threat, invisible mechanics, and the shield having a longer CD then the spell it needed to block, the fight was undoable.

If I recall correctly, the next use of the phrase wasn't until Ulduar, with 25M Hodir HM and 25M Yogg No Watchers both deemed impossible due to fight mechanics. Hodir ended up needing the Flower Power buff from Freya's room to clear initially and it took an insanely complex kiting pattern for Yogg to eventually fall.

      It seems Blizzard are planning on bringing back BlizzCon next year, after an almost 3 year absence, as Blizzard President Mike Ybarra mentioned while talking to the Los Angeles Times.
      While talking broadly about the new culture at Blizzard, Ybarra talked about plans for a 2023 BlizzCon, saying that the company is commited to bringing it back:
      We previously announced we’re taking a pause on BlizzCon while we reimagine it for the future but do want to return to a live event that enables us to celebrate the community.
      We recently hired a new leader of BlizzCon, April McKee, who is hard at work on that plan. ... We are committed to bringing back BlizzCon in 2023.
      The interview goes in-depth on the topic of Blizzard culture, both new and old, as well as touches on Diablo Immortal's monetization, Jen O'Neal and more, so definitely give it a read.

      Blizzard have added some clarification and detailed recent changes to the Season 4 Fated system, from the reduction in boss kills per quest, to a catch-up mechanic later in the season, as well as  confirming new portals to the S4 M+ dungeons for +20 keys, and stating the endboss mount drop rates for the Sepulcher and Sanctum will actually remain until Dragonflight launches! 
      Season 4 (Source)
      Hey folks! Just a quick update - with Season 4’s release date finally announced, I wanted to circle back to this thread and talk about how some of these experiments will be tuned/updated based on your feedback. Thanks again to everyone in this thread & elsewhere for your thoughts!
      I won’t give exact numbers here as we’re still talking about them internally, but:
      As written above, players clearing 10 Fated bosses per week would acquire their season’s limit of Dinar (the currency used to buy Fated raid items) by 6 weeks at the earliest. We’re going to lower the number of kills required on each quest such that it’ll land somewhere in the 4.5/5 week range instead. We’ve also heard a lot of feedback about how if you joined late into Season 4 or had alts you wanted to play, you’d be met with a pretty large wall of Quests/Boss Kills necessary to access the system, which felt like it ran counter to the lessons learned with the Creation Catalyst. Exact details TBD, but after a certain period we’ll be heavily reducing the requirements for these 3 quests. This way the initial progression experience of early Season 4 is intact, but that the later it goes, you’ll be able to raid on a new character or with a new friend without being so far behind. Just to mention it, we’re not currently looking at changing the rate of acquiring the materials to upgrade a Fated item to Heroic or Mythic. It’ll stay as a 100% droprate from Heroic & Mythic bosses, and then require 20 to transform. Lastly, while this thread is specifically about the experimental Raid Rewards systems coming to S4, there’s been some questions elsewhere about Mythic Plus we can answer here. As many of you may know, Shadowlands Season 4 is changing the dungeon pool to both halves of Tazavesh, the Veiled Market, Operation: Mechagon, Return to Karazhan, and the Warlords of Draenor dungeons Grimrail Depot & Iron Docks - along with a new seasonal affix. We’ve seen it speculated, but to confirm: the Keystone Hero achievements for these dungeons (obtained by completing them on a +20 Keystone or higher) will give Hero’s Path Portals to these locations, and operate just like the ones that exist in Shadowlands at present.
      Thanks for reading, thanks for your feedback, and if you have major questions that haven’t been covered in this post (or the ones before it in this thread), let us know and we’ll do our best to clarify.
      P.S. While the ‘Ahead of the Curve’ & ‘Cutting Edge’ Feats of Strength are going away when Season 4 launches, the Carcinized Zerethsteed (from killing Heroic Jailer), as well as the 100% Droprates from the Mythic Sylvanas and Mythic Jailer mounts aren’t going away until Dragonflight launches (The Sylvanas and Jailer mythic mounts will stay in the game, but be significantly reduced in droprate as with previous expansions).
      See you all in Season 4!

      If there's a horn stuck on your back since Patch 9.1, here's what you need to do to remove it.
      If you're running around with this horn on live servers and wonder how to remove it, there's a simple solution for the issue.

      The horn is part of the Patch 9.1 questline that revolves around Odyn and disabling the Eye of the Jailer and its effect in the Maw. Therefore, you must complete (or abandon) related campaign quests! Open your Quest Log and search for any of the quests listed here:
      A Show of Gratitude Ease of Passage Grab Bag Hearing Aid Birds of a Feather The Caged Bird Claim the Sky A Hate-Hate Relationship Fury Given Voice Wrath of Odyn Mawsplaining Anger Management Tears of the Damned Focusing the Eye You can either complete or abandon them to remove the cosmetic horn.

      If that didn't help, try dying or entering an Arena or Skirmish which removes any hidden buffs from your character.
