Method and Exorsus to Stream Raid Progress

Recommended Posts

jl24aLk.jpg

 

Uldir marked the first time a No.1 guild streamed their progress live, as Method took a very successful step forward in the raid race world, with over 200,000 people tuning in on the final boss fight alone. Now it's time to take that one step further as Exorsus have also decided to take their raid progress public!

The two top guilds will be facing off next week when the Mythic difficulty in Battle of Dazar'alor opens, joined by US guild Limit that gave Method quite a run for their money in the last race, as well as Memento and Pieces, who round out the top 5 from Uldir, and they all could be streaming as well, but we don't have any info on that just yet. As you can see below, Method have quite the show planned over at the Red Bull Gaming Sphere, with special guests and a high level of commentary throughout.

Battle of Dazar'alor could prove to be one of the more exciting races so far, as two of the three top guilds' strategies will be open to everyone, and with Limit doing extremely well last raid, on top of the fact that they'll be upping their play time in this one. As always, we'll also be covering the race with daily updates, so make sure to check back for the latest daily summary come Tuesday, January 29th!

Sascha Steffens, Method Co-owner, Co-founder:

For more than a decade, World of Warcraft’s Race to World First was a competition that took place behind closed curtains. Livestreaming made it possible to spectate the best players and teams in the world achieve greatness but the raid race remained to be a secret competition until last September. The livestream of Mythic Uldir was an incredible experience. For the first time we showcased the tenacity and willpower that raiders are required to have in order to achieve a World First. Admittedly I was worried that watching hundreds of failed attempts on the same boss could lead to viewers tuning out eventually. But the opposite happened, every failed attempt watched got you more invested in the race. I’m incredibly excited to announce that the Method guild will livestream their attempt on another World First in Battle of Dazar’alor. See you all next week!

The Race to World First – Battle of Dazar’alor livestreams will begin in the early morning (GMT) on January 30th 2019. Make sure to follow the Method Twitch channel with notifications on to not miss out as we start the race! More announcements regarding the event to follow, stay tuned.

      We have two pretty great videos of Priests taking matters into their own hands, as Leap of Faith "helps" the DPS do the mechanics properly... and sometimes not so much.
      The first clip is a truly amazing example of "healers have to do everything"/babysitting the DPS, as this Priest took control and completed the Lady Inerva mechanic using a puppet:
      However, there's always a flip side to things, as this Priest had the same idea, with a somewhat different outcome on Stole Legion:

      Bellular had the opportunity to interview Steve Danuser and Morgan Day. Interview highlights include deliberate parallels between Anduin, and Arthas, the story of Garrosh, Ner'zhul, and Yrel in Shadowlands, and more. Check out our recap to learn more!
      Interview Highlights
      There are some deliberate parallels between Arthas and Anduin in the new cinematic, but also differences. For a brief moment, Anduin was horrified about what he's done before the Jailer's power of Dominion took hold of him again. That didn't happen with Arthas. It appears we're going to learn more about Ner'zhul in Shadowlands. Garrosh Hellscream also has a small role to play in Patch 9.1. They don't want to reveal any spoilers, though. We will also hear more about Yrel, who wielded the light's power to destroy Mag'har Orcs in the Allied Race unlock scenario.

      We've skipped one week due to BlizzConline, but we're back checking out the most popular DPS specializations for Mythic+ in Shadowlands Season 1!
      DATA RELIABILITY: The data used in this article comes from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.
      This Week's Affixes
      Tyrannical Raging Quaking Prideful Total Runs Recorded
      We've looked at the total runs recorded for each DPS spec during the 10th week of Mythic Season 1. Based on the numbers, we filter out the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

      Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+
      Unholy Death Knight remains the most popular melee specialization for Mythic+ with more than 2 million runs accumulated so far in Shadowlands Season 1. Havoc Demon Hunter is second, and in third place, we have Outlaw Rogue (up from 4th position).
      The least popular melee specialization is Survival Hunter. The spec swapped places with Assassination Rogue.
      1st: Unholy Death Knight - 2,097,235 runs 2nd: Havoc Demon Hunter - 1,637,153 runs 3rd: Outlaw Rogue - 1,609,677 runs 4th: Retribution Paladin - 1,567,321 runs 5th: Windwalker Monk - 1,484,006 runs 6th: Arms Warrior - 1,306,343 runs 7th: Fury Warrior - 1,112,379 runs 8th: Subtlety Rogue - 975,157 runs 9th: Enhancement Shaman - 841,074 runs 10th: Feral Druid - 377,938 runs 11th: Frost Death Knight - 346,118 runs 12th: Assassination Rogue - 100,465 runs 13th: Survival Hunter - 98,163 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance
      The meta starts kicking in at around +16, where most specs start losing their share of representation to the metaclasses. Some non-meta specs stay stable in mid-range keys and only begin disappearing at higher levels.

      Share of Melee DPS Specs at Each Key Level (Weekly Top 500 Runs)
      To see how the meta changes during the season, we sample the top 50 runs for each dungeon (a total of 6,000 keys) for each week. Next, we count the number of times each spec appears in the weekly top 500 sample.
      The data has a zig-zag quality to it. Spec numbers go up and down each week, which is the Tyrannical/Fortified split effect. On Tyrannical weeks, pushers are likely to bench their meta-class mains and play non-meta alts.

      Most Popular Ranged DPS for Mythic+
      Nobody is going to beat Marksmanship Hunter. The spec has accrued almost 5 million runs in Season 1 so far. Balance Druid is second with over 3.2 million runs. Fire Mage occupies 3rd position.
      The least popular spec is Demonology Warlock, with just +30k runs in 2 weeks.
      1st: Marksmanship Hunter - 4,902,342 runs 2nd: Balance Druid - 3,262,862 runs 3rd: Fire Mage - 3,077,748 runs 4th: Shadow Priest - 1,897,133 runs 5th: Affliction Warlock - 1,434,623 runs 6th: Beast Mastery Hunter - 1,275,258 runs 7th: Frost Mage - 1,120,937 runs 8th: Destruction Warlock - 875,969 runs 9th: Elemental Shaman - 853,552 runs 10th: Arcane Mage - 432,427 runs 11th: Demonology Warlock - 305,421 runs Detailed Look at Spec Performance

      You can instantly go from Hated to Revered with the Netherwing faction this week and unlock some really cool mounts!
      Sign of the Twisting Nether increases Burning Crusade reputation gains from combat and quests by 50% this week. The buff is beneficial if you're interested in Netherwing mounts. If you played during the Burning Crusade, you probably know how tedious the grind was back then.
      Normally, you would go from Hated to Neutral with the Netherwing faction when you complete the quest line that unlocks the faction.
      With Sign of the Twisting Nether, you will go from Hated straight to Revered! If you haven't done the quest line yet, now's the best time to do so! You can start the quest line at the crystals south of Warden's Cage in Shadowmoon Valley (Outland), where you need to talk to a blood- elf quest-giver (Mordenai) wandering around the crystals. You can find more information here.
      At Exalted with the Netherwind faction, you will receive one Netherwing mount free and can buy the rest for 200 Gold from the vendor. The available mounts are:
      Reins of the Azure Netherwing Drake Reins of the Cobalt Netherwing Drake Reins of the Onyx Netherwing Drake Reins of the Purple Netherwing Drake Reins of the Veridian Netherwing Drake Reins of the Violet Netherwing Drake Here's a screenshot to better illustrate their appearance.
