Onyxia World First Goes to APES As Well!

Recommended Posts

As it turns out, Onyxia was the tougher of the two endbosses, strictly due to the attunement process, but APES have come through once again! It took them quite a bit longer than Molten Core to get the quests done, but they have done it as they farmed Upper Blackrock Spire for a long time to gain access to the lair. Onyxia actually resets differently from the bigger raids (in 5 days instead of 7), and they actually got the kill only a couple of hours before EU servers go down, which makes their move to go to MC first pretty risky, but it paid off in the end.

Some 5 hours after the Ragnaros kill, we're still only 5 days out from Classic launch (5 days 7 hours to be exact) and it took almost exactly 10 minutes to down Onyxia after the pull. Fear Ward played a big part of the kill, as in Vanilla, and once again she went down on the second try, twice as hard as Rag!

As a little bonus, here's Monkeynews talking about the earlier bosses in Molten Core on his stream, since we didn't get to see them on-stream:

And of course, huge congratulations to APES from Gehennas EU for getting Classic raiding done before the reset, in just about 5 and a half days!

I fell asleep around 4am with everything on mute and woke up within 1 minute of the kill. I really must have ESP when it comes to boss kills, as this has actually happened before in several raids.

Yeah I suppose fear ward and BoSalvation make onyxia somewhat tank and spank.
Not to mention the sheer number of debuffs available nowadays, I suppose it is no surprise it was so trivial.
Well played.

So as I expected boss are a joke, not gonna play classic anymore tbh..

The real end game of Classic is PvP, hence why most of the APES went with Gnome Warriors and such. PvE with the knowledge we have right now is very, very easy!

I'm more interested in future raids, as MC and Ony were set to their easiest levels from Vanilla.

There should also be way more guilds competing and streaming on next raids, as leveling won't be an issue anymore! 🙂 we are only getting started.

My bet is your going to be disappointed. Any vanilla raid on private servers got cleared on the night of release easily. They even cleared worldbuffs on zoning in. On classic it's going to be exactly the same (gamebreaking bugs aside)

Ye possibly. Which is why I really think a pass at raid difficulty would have been a good idea.

Next time people will have insane gear from all this MC farming (Monkeynews got Onslaught Girdle which is literally bis for DPS Warr on par with Naxx belt) and obliterate even more 😛

I find really funny how people are saying that Onyxia is easy. People have been fighting her for over 10 years. And of course the ones that downed her were WoW veterans that really know their stuff.

Onyxia was considered one of the hardest bosses in Vanilla. Heck, there is a reason why the classic "Onyxia Wipe Animation" is so popular.

I'm not saying whether she was or was not hard, but I really don't think that's the big thing of why that was popular. It was just a funny video, and people love to hear people freaking out over things like that.

 

The people saying she's easy are comparing it, and really vanilla raiding in general, to today where we have way more mechanics. So being "one of the hardest bosses in Vanilla" isn't necessarily saying much. It's been said time and time again, but things that made the fights harder was poor connections, poor computers, less general game knowledge. All things that are vastly improved today, so she's going to pose a lot less of a threat now then 15 years ago.

      The mono-class raids are back in full swing it seems, after yesterday's (almost) all mage Ny'alotha, except this time it's on Classic (and there's not that 1 Demon Hunter a lot of the other "mono" raids tend to use, which would be somewhat difficult to pull of in Classic anyway). Хасу (Hasu), GM of <Нам Везёт Мы Играем> took 39 more shamans into Ragnaros' lair and came out victorious!
      The full clear took them around 3 hours, with the DPS consisting of mostly elemental specs, the tank obviously being enhancement, and the fights starting at 8 restos and ending at 12 at Majordomo and Rag.
      Here's the full Ragnaros run, and you can check out the rest of the raid by skipping through the VoD. Enjoy the FULL RP section, in Russian, because I'm feeling cranky!

      And here are some comments from one of the raiders, from before the run took place:

      And here's another shaman art piece by Peter Lee, because Tauren shaman > all! And also because I couldn't find the author (D.H.) of the header image to source it.

      Blizzard has enabled a second layer for Herod and Whitemane in the North American region.

      Over the next few minutes, we’re enabling a second layer for the Herod and Whitemane realms. This is a step we’re taking very carefully to make it so that players can enjoy playing on those realms during peak hours.
      It has been a very high priority for us to understand why, after we de-layered ten realms on May 14, these two realms reversed course and experienced this, while the others did not. We will continue to pay very close attention to this situation and make adjustments to the game service as necessary.
      As before, Herod and Whitemane remain restricted from the Character Transfer service.

      We have some crazy pulls today as both a mage and a paladin have been doing some massive mob gatherings over in Sunken Temple, downing almost all the dungeon's mobs in 1 pull (with around 100 elites for the mage and 72 for the paladin. First off we have Taiwaneseninja using the mage's frost spells to control the pull and get pretty much all the dragonkin and trolls in the temple to 1 location, while using the many ledges/glitch spots to better bunch the mobs up (and manage to use a bandage or two).
      But that wasn't quite enough for the mage, as he decided to get some nature resist gear and head back in for a faster clear time:
      Then we have the same principle, but a paladin has to be a bit less enthusiastic, since he can "only" manage all of the dragonkin at once, and also has to rely on some engineering bombs to get the job done (he also explains how to get some non-engineer bombs in the video/description as well).
      Both of the players have been optimizing this for boosting purposes, with 1-3 other players just sitting at the entrance and getting quite a bit of XP.

      Blizzard is working on a series of hotfixes that they hope to release in the next few days. First, they are increasing the spawn rate of Black Lotus. The second hotfix affects some Warsong Gulch places that should not be accessed by players. The final hotfix tags you as busy if someone else tries to start a trade with you if you are engaged with the mailbox or bank.
      (Source)
      Via hotfixes, we’re working on several quality-of-life improvements that should go live in the next few days.
      Black Lotus scarcity has been consistently among the top issues we’ve seen player feedback about, so we’ve decided to update how we handle Black Lotus spawns. Since the launch of WoW Classic, the game has used the spawn times and locations from original World of Warcraft, but population and social factors have led to Black Lotus being much more scarce than it was in original WoW. While these issues affect all mining and herb nodes to some degree, Black Lotus is especially affected because it has the special property of only having one spawn up at a time in each of the zones it spawns in.
      In original WoW, designers planned Black Lotus around a technical limitation – only 10 spawn locations per node type could be active at the same time in the same zone. We no longer have that limitation, but it gives us a design intention that we can work with: Black Lotus was supposed to spawn in the widest variety of locations, while there could only be one up at a time in each zone. As always, our goal is to minimize differences from original World of Warcraft, and we feel this is a case where we can follow that design intention in a way that is warranted by modern conditions as well as beneficial to players.
      We’re going to increase the spawn rate of Black Lotus, and we’re going to add many additional possible spawn locations in each of the Black Lotus zones. With a different hotfix, we’re working on making it so that a player cannot see a Black Lotus on-screen or on their minimap if they’re dead, unless they have 300 Herbalism.
      For Warsong Gulch, we’ve identified a number of locations in the battleground where clever players have found ways to get to a place they were never intended to go. These exploits are decidedly unfair, so we’re putting a stop to them. In most cases, the way we prevent such things is to place an invisible gate that blocks the unintended path. However, that’s sometimes impossible, so we make the out-of-bounds location fatal.
      We’re also working on a hotfix that should put a stop to one small annoyance – now, if a player is actively engaged with the mailbox or bank, they will be considered “busy” if someone else tries to initiate a trade with them.
      We’ll have all of these changes noted for you in the next Hotfixes Update that follows them going live.
