Battle of Dazar'alor M Race Day 2: Jaina Lives!

Recommended Posts


Day 2 has come and gone and we have one boss remaining, as Limit cleaned up Stormwall Blockade some hours after they woke up, claiming their 5th World First in the raid. The EU servers were already up at that point, but they hadn't caught up yet and they still haven't, trailing 1 boss behind the US No.1. We also have some Wildcard Gaming kill videos for bosses 3, 5 and 6.

The EU guilds started strong today, as Method, Exorsus and Pieces tore through the first 6 bosses in around 6 hours. Method were especially quick, beating even Limit's time by about an hour. Perhaps spurred on by Method's quick catch-up, Limit popped up with their huge 8/9 World First on Stormwall Blockade and moved 2 bosses ahead of everyone else.

After their quick defeat of King Rastakhan, the sixth boss, something changed for Method, as it seems High Tinker Mekkatorque really didn't suit them. They took a really long time to down him, getting overtaken by Pieces for that World 2nd, EU 1st kill, lagging around 2 and a half hours beind them and a whopping 5 hours behind Limit's time on that same boss. Eventually they did get him down and secured the World 3rd, but it was getting pretty late at that point, so they got some progress in on Stormwall Blockade before heading off to sleep. A bunch of EU guilds also ended their day on 6/9 after defeating Rastakhan, with Memento, Exorsus, Aversion and Future claiming the World 6-9th spots, and Vision rounding out the top 10 with their US 4th.

And here's Method's long in the making High Tinker Mekkatorque kill, directly from their stream:

I've also made a table for the kill times for the top 3 guilds on the last 3 killed bosses over on the Method progress site, so I'll share it here as well (measuring the time spent since the first boss kill of the raid and the one previous to the one mentioned):

  Rastakhan-30-01-19-04-46-27-6.png Mekkatorque-30-01-19-01-47-34-5.png Blockade-banner-21-01-19-03-41-12-1-31-0
     From 1st                 From previous From 1st                 From previous From 1st                 From previous
Limit 6H 46Min                 2H 34Min    10H 30Min                3H 44Min      28H 33Min                 18H 03Min    
Pieces 7H 42Min                 2H 14Min     14H                       6H 18Min  /
Method 5H 34Min                 1H 56Min    14H 23Min                8H 49Min     /

And so Limit are still quite a bit ahead, with Pieces and Method chasing, and both guilds have lost a fair bit of time with their slower progress on High Tinker, showing just how well Limit did on that particular fight. Whether Stormwall Blockade was also an amazingly fast kill by Limit or not remains to be seen, as the EU guilds will see how fast they can get it down today (if at all). Jaina still remains alive and we don't know much of anything about her difficulty at the moment, so here's hoping she not only stays alive (or, better to say undefeated, as she doesn't actually die at the end of the encounter) but also isn't bugged or impossible, which would almost nullify Limit's lead if she gets fixed later on.

We'll see what happens tomorrow (and hopefully get some videos for Tinker and possibly Stormwall) and if anyone has a chance at beating, or even catching up with Limit.

      We have some interesting statistics to take a look at today, as redditor Quasiwave created an infographic looking at population data for both factions, the most popular races and classes, as well as a (somewhat less relevant/accurate) "most commonly paired race/class combos" diagonal. There's not that much shocking info in there, with Blood Elves being staggeringly popular for the Horde and Night Elves and Humans for the Alliance, but it's interesting to see all the stats anyway.

      Now, the numbers can never be exact (or even close to it), as Blizzard doesn't share that kind of data anymore, but Quasiwave took the next best thing, as the data was taken from Warcraft Realms and features 300,000 characters (not unique players).

      Here's some more info on the methods used by the author himself and you can check out the reddit thread for even more statistics debate on the methods used, whether it's a realistic representation, and just how accurate or not those diagonal boxes are.

      We're back to small hotifxes, as today's have only one actually, with the N'Zoth fight getting that multiple Spike Tentacle cast on the same player bug sorted out.

      Ny’alotha, the Waking City N’Zoth the Corruptor Fixed a bug that could cause Spike Tentacles to repeatedly target a player with multiple casts of Pain Spike in succession rather than randomizing targets.

      Chromie is casually chilling on her hourglass near embassies in Stormwind and Orgrimmar, allowing players to pick an expansion/timeline they would like for leveling from 10 to 50 before heading to Shadowlands.
      New players that have not played through Battle for Azeroth and reached level 120 yet with at least one character won't be eligible for this option and must play Battle for Azeroth by default when Shadowlands goes live.
      Any subsequent characters you create will be able to pick from the following timelines for leveling:
      Kalimdor & Eastern Kingdoms
      Deathwing's emergence from Deepholm altered Azeroth's landscape forever and weakened the veil between this world and the elemental planes. Deathwing won't know what hit him!

      The Dark Portal has once again opened, and the demons of the Burning Legion are advancing on Azeroth! Make sure their plans have a rather... Azerothian-sized setback!

      The tragic fall of Arthas Menethil and his ascension to the frozen throne as the Lich King is a moment in history that has permanently left a lingering scar across all Azeroth. Stopping the Lich King would really put the Scourge's plan on ice.

      An ancient and mysterious land shrouded in fog for over ten thousand years appeared due to the events of the Cataclysm, and its people could really use the help of an adventurer like you. Going back to Pandaria is a great way to see that life is worth savoring!

      The orcish clans had a very unfortunate fate in our timeline, but the meddling of Garrosh Hellscream brought forth a force that threatened the very existence of all life on Azeroth--the Iron Horde. Travel back through time and meet the orcish clans and the draenei for the first time... again!

      Broken Isles
      The Burning Legion sought to conquer Azeroth and enslave its world soul and now that the Tomb of Sargeras has been reopened, they advance on our world. History will remember that you stood between the Legion and annihilation!

      You can return and talk to Chromie to select a different timeline whenever you feel like it.
      There is also a whirly screen visual and clock ticking sound when you select a timeline.

      Chromie also has some cool replies to go with your expansion choice:
      Vanilla/Cataclysm: "Who would have thought someone named Deathwing would bring about so much destruction?" Outland: "You look quite prepared!" Northrend: "Do not exercise restraint when showing your great power to the Scourge." Pandaria: "Whatever you do, do not get between a Pandaren and their brew. It'll be unbearably painful if you do!" Draenor: "If a scary orc offers you something to drink, you probably want to say no." Broken Isles: "If you find a powerful weapon, just make sure it isn't corrupted by the Burning Legion or Old Gods, okay?" Note that timeline icons are currently messed up on Alpha.
      Chromie Time allows you to select an expansion/timeline for leveling in Shadowlands.

      Blizzard just posted a preview of new Blood and Void Elf customization options that will soon become available on Shadowlands Alpha. These include new eye and skin color options. Both races will have the option to select blue eyes.

      Additionally, Blood Elves will have the option to choose from a variety of new skin colors and Void Elves will inherit the skin color options that are available to Blood Elves. Here’s a glimpse of the potential characters that you can create with some of the new options.
