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.

      We've already taken a look at some previous iterations of AI taking a shot at various WoW-related things, from lore characters in the real world to characters singing, and more recently, story generation and artistic interpretations of expansions. Today we have a lot of images from that last category, as Whittz0r has been poking around the Dream Wombo AI app and entering various WoW raid terms with varying results.
       
      Whittz0r actually went through all of them, expansion by expansion, to see what the AI would cook up. Here are a few I thought looked interesting and you can check out all the rest here.
           
      You can see which elements it picked up on in the Vanilla raids, as it's going more for the generic terms instead of WoW-specific ones, although the insectoid theme of AQ is a pretty good catch.
           
      For the WotLK raids it did manage to get the snowy and Yogg-y themes of Ulduar right, which is a very WoW-thing, and with ICC you can almost imagine having the Frozen Throne there near the top! As for the Eye of Eternity, the image has nothing to do with WoW really, but I thought it was a pretty cool one nonetheless.
           
      The next three picks cover Cata and MoP, as the Firelands do look generic, but tell me you don't see Lord Rhyolith in there! As for MoP, the Throne isn't quite the building it is in-game, but the spiritual vibes work well, and Orgrimmar is looking pretty orc-populated and authentic!
           
      And finally we have a pretty accurate BRF and EN, with a spot-on theme for Ny'alotha!
      Again, you can check a lot more of these over here, with every single raid getting its own image courtesy of Wombo AI and Whittz0r. You should try the app out yourselves and see what you can get with some more specific WoW-related terms! Also, here's two bonuses, with and an interesting take on Castle Nathria and a pretty accurate bonus Yogg-Saron, courtesy of joe_the_insane.

      After a mistake with the Honor calculations in Season of Master Blizzard have now corrected the system and are in the process of changing existing player ranks to the intended levels. 
      PvP Rank (Source)
      6:00 p.m. PST
      At this time, we’re running calculations that will bring Season of Mastery players who have earned Honor to the correct Rank. This may take a little while to complete, and if you aren’t seeing your correct Rank thereafter, logging out and back in may be required.
      As soon as we can, we intend to remove gear from player-characters who do not meet the Rank requirement to have obtained the gear. With that in mind, we advise players who have found themselves in possession of a high Rank piece of gear to not waste any resources on it, such as enchantments.
      Thank you for your patience as we continue to fix this.

      Even though we saw one of Sylvanas' new models, her other 9.2 model remains encrypted in the game files, as of the latest 9.2 PTR build.
      Sylvanas is getting not one but two models in Eternity's End. One of her new models has her wearing prisoner garb and her eyes no longer glow red, which all makes sense. We'll use her knowledge to save Anduin and crack Domination Magic to beat the Jailer, but what about her other model?

      The second model remains encrypted, at this time, which means something's brewing up for the Winrunner, and Blizzard doesn't want us to know until the patch hits live servers. The Sylvanas novel was likely postponed to March 29, 2022, due to spoilers.
      Many new 9.2 sound files that potentially contain juicy spoilers also remain encrypted for now. This week's 9.2 PTR build contained new sound files where Sylvanas reflects on her past.
      Let's see what they have in store for Sylvanas in the final major content update of Shadowlands.

      Blizzard shared some details about the Protection Paladin 4-piece set bonus in 9.2. Currently on the PTR, it's not working properly. They plan on increasing its internal cooldown from 0.1 to 1 second in a future build, and more.
      The Retribution 2-piece set bonus isn't properly working either.
      (Source)
      Hello Paladins,
      We’re looking into reports of the Protection Paladin 4 piece bonus not properly casting Judgment when it should be. The intent of this bonus is that it does cast a real Judgment when it triggers - debuff, Holy Power, and damage. Also worth noting, in a coming build, its internal cooldown will be increased from .1 seconds up to 1 second. This will help keep the bonus’s power from scaling out of control when tanking large numbers of enemies at once, while still rewarding the intuitive behavior of “trying to block as many things as you can.”
      With regards to the Retribution 2 piece, it is a bug that the set’s Seraphim overwrites an active Seraphim. The intent is that it will extend one, so the value of the 2 piece is consistent whether you are running Seraphim or not.

      The latest 9.2 update revealed an interesting new PvP trinket called Gladiator's Echoing Resolve.
      UPDATE: The spell is not a PvP Talent as we originally anticipated, but a new trinket effect.
      The trinket increases the duration of incoming CC effects by 20%. When affected, it protects you from the next spell interruption and CC effect, lasting 30 seconds.
      Gladiator's Echoing Resolve - Duration of incoming crowd control effects increased by 20%. Does not stack with similar effects. When affected, protects from the next spell interruption and crowd control effect, persisting for 30 sec. In earlier builds, we also discovered new Gladiator trinkets with interesting effects that you can check out below.
