Battle of Dazar'alor Race Day 10: Limit Video and Blog

Recommended Posts


There's still more to be had from the race, as a third guild still hasn't made it across the finish line and we have both Limit's kill video and a nice rundown of their entire raid week in written form.

A short update today as no progress has been made in the actual race, but we did get a lot of information on the Limit side of things. After yesterday's stream from GM Max today we got the kill video and a blog talking about Limit's entire raid progression, what they spent most time on and what exactly went wrong on that final day of the US reset, how almost all raid members race changed to Trolls and had managed to get the boss down to 8% before the reset. The blog also covers why it took them so long to down the boss after the reset, but let's first take a look at the video:

Then it's on to the blog by Tagzz over on HeroesHearth, with many interesting details like these:


Day 6 (Monday)

This was our last hurrah, but because of the troll racial discovery we were actually very confident that we could land a kill.  Our entire raid aside from paladins and demon hunters race changed troll, and we entered the raid with a strategy that we were sure would work if executed correctly.  At this time we started raid as far as I remember Method had a 10% pull with their burn, and it looked like they had plenty of room to improve on that. We still thought that it wouldn’t be enough for them however…  By the end of the day I think they improved to 8%.

When we got into phase 3, it was clear that Bliz had changed Jaina again and made it so she didn’t skip Orb of Frost in her Ice Block anymore (all of her abilities now delayed instead of some being skipped).  This hurt our strategy, but it would still be possible. We had numerous pulls that got as low as 10% (and in these pulls we definitely had the damage and healer cooldowns to kill the boss in time, but in each pull we wiped to a mechanic in phase 3).  It was apparent at this time that Method had definitely passed us in progression as their phase 3’s were much more clean than ours, although we had had more phase 3 reps. This fact is what hurt us most; we did not work on the mechanics in phase 3 to make it consistent due to continuously flip flopping strategies earlier on.

We ended the night in defeat, having never been able to make it cleanly past the Siegebreaker. Every time we successfully suicided the Siegebreaker (if the target dies, the Siegebreaker will not go off), we would die to some other mistake.  We went 2 hours later than our normal raid time this night, but eventually admitted defeat as our pulls started getting worse as people got tired.  We had missed our chance.

Make sure to head on over to HeroesHearth for the full blog, as it really gives you the full picture, along with Method's stream, of just how the race went down.

      Crucible of Storms Mythic opens next week and the next World First race comes along with it. Despite the fact this raid is a whole lot smaller than Battle of Dazar'alor, the only relevant part for the top raiders competing for WF is its difficulty. Considering Blizzard have stated that Uu'nat, Harbinger of the Void is supposed to be as difficult as Lady Jaina Proudmoore, and the first 8 bosses of Dazar'alor all died less than two days after the raid's release, we might actually have a serious race on our hands once again!
      Unless the raid gets cleared in a few days, Method and Limit will be going at it once more, battling it out for the top honors, and this time around we're getting an additional treat! Limit have just announced that they will be streaming their progress through the Crucible of Storms live!
      Limit will also be raising funds for St. Jude's Children's Research Hospital during the raid:
      While Method still haven't announced any specific plans for Crucible, they will definitely be streaming again, which means we'll be able to watch both sides of the race! The last two raid races were incredibly close, with Method coming out on top both times, but we've never been able to check in on Limit's progress as it happened, so we could get the full picture. This means Crucible of Storms will be a really amazing experience for the race, just as long as those two bosses survive for a while.

      Recently, one of Method's raiders, Cayna, spoke about the one day/16 hour advantage NA guilds have over the EU side of things, delving into the advantages and disadvantages of the situation, as well as going over some solutions. It's a very relevant discussion, with the potential short duration of the upcoming race, and you can check out that video here.

      As usual, we'll be covering the race in our daily summaries, as well as posting any breaking news as it happens, so here's hoping this raid proves to be a worthy challenge for the top players and is an exciting one for those of us watching!
      The two-boss raid will be live-streamed by the two top guilds.

      Ashran Broadcast Text
      There's also some broadcast text for Queen Azshara and Nazjatar.
      Perfect! Good Job! Keep Trying! What are you waiting for? We have the enemy in our sights! Fire! "Ah, good. Our guests have arrived." Behold the wonders of Nazjatar. The finest sight your eyes will ever behold... and the last. "Please, do stay. Explore all the comforts my kingdom has to offer." "Queen Azshara, more landwalkers approach." They seek the tidestone... but I will not leave it unguarded as they so foolishly did. "At once, my queen! "I must say, that was a delightfully dramatic entrance." "$n, you made it! I wasn't sure you would after Fenn told me of your task. What have you found?" "You are bound to the Tidestone's might, Zharessa. Use it to wash away this unsightly incursion." "A most devious arcane puzzle will lock my prized possessions, so that I may return one day and claim them. Now, to deal with all of this water flooding my chamber..." "I have sealed the chamber, nonetheless this is quite alarming. I shall finish locking these chests and then enact a most brilliant escape that I simply have not thought of yet." "I must say, you naga take orders well. These weapons are among the most powerful I have ever created." You again? I should have known. Workers! Deal with this intruder. Nothing halts production! "This won't end well for you, I'm afraid." "Only the most brilliant, like myself, will be able to complete my intricate puzzles. This one I have fashioned after the ley lines that cross our world." "Ah, another puzzle complete. Let us see the thieves take my possessions now. What in the world is going on outside? It sounds like... the ocean?" $n! Adaru told me of your task. What were you able to find? Blademaster Okani has offered to aid us. Let's ensure the ankoans have whatever they require. "I will lead our allies back to safety. Be cautious, $n. The naga won't relinquish their weapons easily." "I'll lead our allies back to safety, but use caution, $n. Our enemies won't part with their weapons willingly." "An arcane lock will protect this chest as well. They key, of course, is to never cross the ley lines." "Another of my possessions, secured for the ages. One day, I will return for you." "Yet, what if another of my genius should happen upon this cache? Ha! I made myself laugh. Another of my brilliance... how droll." "Another ley lock secured. Even with the water entering my abode, to use my mind in such a fashion... I astound myself." "The most difficult lock, for the most delicate prize. Try your mind against this, looter." "The whispers from the deep call to me, but I have been hearing whispers for far longer than this. My things are all that matter to me now!" I've got him free! Stay close. I'll get us out. You face far greater forces than you know., This is your last warning! I can still offer you mercy. Leave now and I will call off the assault. Azshara! AZSHARA! You cannot leave me here to die! We had a deal! "Contain yourself, human. Show faith in your queen." It's safe to assume that the naga are keeping a stockpile of these weapons somewhere nearby. "If we can locate their cache, then we can strip them of their arsenal and arm our own forces." It's safe to assume that the naga have a store of these weapons somewhere. "If we're able to locate the cache, we can take the weapons ourselves and arm our allies." Oculeth has been working on a way to detect even trace amounts of azerite. Let's ensure that he has whatever he needs to complete the task. You! Get away from that! Incompatible presence detected! Unworthy subjects will be neutralized. Uh oh. That can't be good. Skaggit! Get that thing under control! "Hang on, I've got an idea!" Gimme that gnome! "Hey, Brighteyes! Over here!" "Phew! Looks like you handled that situation, boss!" Good thing we kept one around. Now we've got a lead on the next location!, Hah! This has gotta pay off! Unworthy?! I hand-picked these tinkologists myself! They're the best and the brightest! Th-This can't be right! It's malfunctioning! ,Amazing! The expedition has been saved by the Tinkmaster's technological expertise. Most perplexing... I couldn't find a failsafe protocol. "Thank you, Gila!" "And now, with the coordinates in hand, our next stop is Mechagon!" "Ah, looks like an intruder activated my arcane trap! You poor fool, you simply had no chance against my genius." Annihilated. "Obtaining the tidestone must be our top priority, but we cannot press further into Azshara's realm without first knowing what we're up against." Azerite Powers

      Learn more about how to unlock flying in Battle for Azeroth. This post goes through requirements as of the initial 8.2 Build 30080 that was recently pushed to Public Test Realms. 
      Flying in Battle for Azeroth
      Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two enables flying in Kul Tiras, Zandalar as well as Mechagon & Nazjatar in Patch 8.2. It will take approximately a month for players with Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One to unlock it. If you haven't completed the first part of the achievement, we recommend you doing so right now, so that you can work on Part Two right after Rise of Azshara hits live servers.
      As of the latest 8.2 Build 30080, there are three requirements to unlock flying:
      Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part One Revered with Rustbolt Resistance (New 8.2 Mechagon faction) Alliance: Revered with Ankoan (New 8.2 Nazjatar faction) Horde: Revered with Unshackled (New 8.2 Nazjatar faction) Rewards
      Completing Battle for Azeroth Pathfinder, Part Two unlocks flying in all Battle for Azeroth zones, including Mechagon and Nazjatar. You will also get the Wonderwing 2.0 mechanical parrot mount. You can find more details about the mount in this post.
