Jaina Heroic World First Kill Video

Recommended Posts

dCrjwUA.jpg
 

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:

Expected a cinematic ?.

I think I read from wowhead's twitter last night that Daz has two cinematics, so that's more than the usual one; it's just that we have no ending cinematic. 

Speaking as an Alliance main player though, I think it would be rather indulgent to have another clip of Jaina Gandalfing her way through everything and everyone and detract from the recent emphasis on Tyrande and Malfurion.

At least she doesn't die. MERELY A SETBACK.

Kael'thas would like to have a word with you.

Why does it always have to be a race? And they wonder why people complain about available content. Its because nowadays people clear it all the day it comes out, and want more. No company can keep up with that. I wouldn't expect them to.

You could make it harder, and more difficult to clear in one day, but people would complain about it being too hard - asking for nerfs. Developers just can't win imo.

That is people for you. Never happy, always complaining.

Also, the race is merely for bragging rights, which no one else really cares.

It's called Mythic. Also, people have been racing for world first since Vanilla WoW so this really is not anything new...

I dont think he is wrong.

As you say, it can be a race, but it would be great if this take longer, like months as it was on vanilla, bc, wotlk, not days like this is now.

Think his opinion is valid: if its too hard, people complain, if this is easy, it ends on the same day. Imo, dont think a harder content would be that bad.

Im not sure that's possible. People didn't teiad as much as top guilds do now back then. Basically the only way to tune a boss to live for more than like 2-3 weeks is to make it impossible or to gate it behind a VERY specific DPS check that requires the exact item level from the exact specs (and Blizzard can't tune that well, they can barely tune this level of difficulty).

The people racing that clear it in one day aren't usually the ones complaining about no content. Most the people that complain "no content" also don't touch the hardest parts of a raid. Especially because this is just heroic and not mythic, but I doubt people still worry about heroic that hard.

Method isn't sitting there right after they beat a mythic raid and being all "Oh man, there sure is no content in this game!"

As I said before... there is Mythic. And Starym took the words out of my mouth on the issue of making raids longer.

 

Also, Takamura7 made a statement as if people are complaining that they have nothing left to do after finishing the raid. His comment is more out of place since guilds race for world first all the time, so of course they will go through it. But I must remind you, it was completed on heroic. I do agree that there are people out there that actually go through content too fast and complain on the forums, but it's their fault (and sometimes the devs). Besides why does it matter if someone blows through all of the available content. Not that it affects you, me, or anyone else.

There is a big difference between the guilds that are clearing the raids within weeks of their release and the typical guilds. The ones clearing it that fast are the top 1% of guilds that raid 40+ hours a week and push themselves to the limit. For the majority of guilds it still takes at least a month or two after the major guilds finish before they can clear mythic. About half the player base will never even complete it on mythic while it is still relevant and only see the end because of raid finder.

      Here's another Mythic+ non-meta victory, with a controller using tank finishing up the achievement in the worst Covenant for the spec in M+, in PUGs!
      We look at the log rankings, tier lists and various other optimizations and standings a lot here, so it's also important to point out that you really can get most non-highest end content done with any spec you want. Berub proved this and then some, as they got KSM while tanking as a Blood Death Knight Night Fae, the worst Covenant for M+ for the spec AND used a controller while doing it! And the best part? The reason Berub chose Night Fae is because of the armor looks!

      And while many others have completed KSM with off-meta specs, and some did with a controller as well, the tank + worst Covenant + controller part is especially impressive, and Berub didn't quite mention the control method to the groups, or those runs probably never would have happened at all. Here are some comments from the journey:
      Hopefully examples like this encourage players to try new things and now be quite as limited by the meta, despite it being pretty hard to get into groups, especially for DPS.

      This week's world boss is Mortanis and you can find him in Maldraxxus.
      Mortanis
      One of the most studied necromancers of the House of Rituals, Mortanis has been working tirelessly on a means of transforming himself into a more powerful form. Now, he is only a few moments from succeeding.

      Mortanis drops Item Level 207 loot along with various Legendary Power recipes and Conduits. Do not forget to pick the Renown weekly quest for 1,000 Anima before killing Mortanis. We are listing the full loot table below. 

      Memory of Fujieda (Warrior Legendary Power) Memory of Keefer (Monk Legendary Power) Memory of a Guile Charm (Rogue Legendary Power) Band of the Risen Bonelord (Ring) Mortanis's Ribcage (Mail Chest) Bone Crushing Vicegrips (Mail Gloves) Bone-Cleated Footpads (Leather Feet) Spine Crawler Waistcord (Cloth Belt) Shoulderblade Vambraces (Plate Wrists)

      There seem to be some new issues with the EU authentication servers, as many players are unable to log in. So if you're having trouble playing at the moment, don't worry, it's not just you:

      Anyone having issues loggin in (EU)? fix the servers Blizzard have also responded on the matter, but it seems to still be ongoing:
      So we'll just have to wait a bit more, although the issue has been persisting for about an hour now.

      Are you wondering how your spec performs in Mythic+? Here's a tier list with all specializations!
      DISCLAIMER
      In this article, we are taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so it is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Spec Tier List for Mythic+
      S-Tier
      Fire Mage - 2.02 ratio Balance Druid - 1.75 ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.74 ratio Vengeance Hunter - 1.64 ratio A-Tier
      Holy Paladin - 1.37 ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.36 ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.33 ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.28 ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.15 ratio Fury Warrior - 1.14 ratio Discipline Priest - 1.08 ratio Affliction Warlock - 1.08 ratio B-Tier
      Guardian Druid - 0.89 ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.75 ratio Shadow Priest - 0.73 ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.72 ratio Restoration Druid - 0.71 ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.61 ratio Protection Paladin - 0.53 ratio Holy Priest - 0.5 ratio Elemental Shaman - 0.5 ratio C-Tier
      Enhancement Shaman - 0.47 ratio Protection Warrior - 0.41 ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.41 ratio Feral Druid - 0.41 ratio Survival Hunter - 0.39 ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.39 ratio Frost Mage - 0.37 ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.35 ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.35 ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.31 ratio Subtlety Rogue - 0.31 ratio Arcane Mage - 0.31 ratio Arms Warrior - 0.30 ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.28 ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.19 ratio
