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.

      Here come some big spell batching changes to the Classic PTR, with a huge rediction in the batch window:
      PTR 1.13.7 (source)
      Today, we’ve opened the WoW Classic Public Test Realm (PTR) to test version 1.13.7 of WoW Classic. In this upcoming version, we intend to reduce the spell batching delay.
      There are numerous class abilities and spells from Original World of Warcraft that were re-implemented in WoW Classic with spell batching in mind, and we initially expect bugs or adverse consequences with spell batching reduced. In this PTR, testers have an opportunity to join us in finding such issues. Raids and battlegrounds are available in this PTR to facilitate testing in a wide variety of game content.
      Initially, the spell batch window is set to 10 milliseconds on the 1.13.7 PTR, a reduction from the 1.13.6 live window of 400 milliseconds. Please use the in-game bug reporter (default hotkey: mouseover+F6) in the PTR to submit your bug reports or feedback on abilities with spell batching reduced.
      8
      When logged into the PTR, you can mouse over any item, spell, or talent and press the assigned hotkey to initiate a bug report for that item or spell. Bug reports created in this way include valuable metadata about the spell, your talents, and your player-state when the bug is submitted.
      If you’ve unbound your “Open Bug Report” hotkey, you can rebind it in Keybindings -> PTR.
      5
      If you wish to discuss class issues related to this update with other players, we’ve opened a new discussion thread in the WoW Classic Bug Report forum here 34.
      Thank you for testing WoW Classic with us!

      Salad Bakers have cleared Naxxramas in WoW Classic under 60 minutes. This is the fastest speed clear of the raid so far. Congratulations!
      Salad Bakers have beaten their own record (1 hour 3 minutes 56 seconds) by a couple of minutes and the guild cleared Naxxramas in 59 minutes and 44 seconds!

      Here's a video of their speed clear. As TehBananaBread pointed out, a boss died every 4 minutes, which is insane!

      As the Castle Nathria RWF is going on we thought it was time to share the spotlight, as another, equally as impressive and dedicated group of players has taken down the antagonist of many low level players. You can see top level raid leading, the tactics and strategies below, as things get very hairy at the end, with all cooldowns popped and the tank having to kite!
      Unfortunately for the pro group above, this isn't the World First, as it's actually been done before - by a single player:
      Whether this is "end of expansion" type activity or just some usual clean fun, it's always great to see players just doing their own thing and finding their own fun in WoW!

      After the recent survey that went out and talked about interest in the Burning Crusade Classic, we now have a fairly reliable source talking about more news on the much expected continuation of Classic coming before the end of the year!
      Nano, formerly a core staff member of the Nostalrius private server team, who had a meeting with Blizzard about how they made their server while Vanilla Classic was being developed, tweeted this yesterday:
      While he may theoretically have been referring to the survey, the tweet was posted significantly after it, so it seems more likely this is related to an actual official confirmation/announcement, especially since it refers to a schedule specifically. This comes after Nano correctly predicted/leaked the release schedule for Naxxramas, but also had a time set for the TBC Classic beta in said earlier leak:
      So this source has been pretty reliable in the past, and this tweet sure makes it sound like we won't have to wait for BlizzConline to hear about the Burning Crusade coming to Classic!

      Blizzard have timed their releases very tightly, as Classic Naxxramas also seems to hold/produce a river of souls of its own... however a very different one than the Shadowlands Maw version. In both cases souls are going to their doom, although in Classic at least they get to have their bodies back!

      Just in case you're not quite sure what you're looking at, that's a whoole lot of players running back to the raid after death, in a very organized fashion, and it really does look like, and to some extent is, a river of souls.
      And here's the real one from the Maw for comparison:

      Interestingly, none of the souls in retail seem to be screaming about having to go back to Naxx and the Four Horsemen.
