Well, this was the inevitable final outcome of all the special raid compositions, from all druid to all paladin, shaman etc, the endgame has always been all naked it seems. We have 40 absolute madlads (and madladies) taking on Onyxia with nothing but their pride equipped (and one warlock who put on a trinket accidentally mid fight through an accidental key-bind click, so I guess the run is null and void!!11), so that's no weapons, gear, trinkets, nothing.
It is a truly terrifying world out there with the crazy amount of world buffs indeed. As you'd expect, this is the least warriors ever seen in a Classic raid, as they tend to be pretty useless without weapons, but we did have 12 mages, 7 warlocks, 3 hunters, 1 ret pally, 1 shadow priest and 1 balance druid as DPS, 8 priests, 5 holy palas and 1 resto druid as healers and a single prot pala tank. Here's the Warcraft Logs page for more details and here's the video:
Big congrats to them on this very fun achievement!
We have a big change to the anti-botting measures put in place for instance farming, as the limit of 30 instances per day has been moved to a per-character basis instead of a per-realm one! It should be as effective against bots, but much less so to real players.

Time-based instance limits are now enforced per-character. Developers’ notes: The newer limit of 30 instances in a 24-hour period is an extension of the 5 instances per hour limit, which was tracked per-realm since it was first implemented in 2005. The intention behind both of these restrictions is to reduce the profits for new bots when they first come online and haven’t been removed yet. We’ve concluded that a per-character limit will be just as effective, while being less restrictive to legitimate players who have multiple characters on the same realm.
The most recent Blackwing Lair fastest speed clear didn't quite last long, as we have a new best time! Progress are back on top, pushing faction rivals Onslaught down to second, as the Alliance guild clears BWL 23 seconds faster, downing Nefarian in 18 minutes and 51 seconds!
The Blessings have outperformed the totems for now, and the raid composition saw the usual melee stack, with 22 warriors, 5 rogues, 6 priests, 3 paladins, 1 mage, 1 warlock, 1 druid and 1 hunter. You can check out all of the run's stats here.
Some players have been having issues getting the extra bag slots from adding an authenticator to their account and Blizzard have explained it's related to out of date addons:
Bad Slots Fix (source)
We have seen accurate reports of the new bag slots not appearing in-game, due to out of date addons.
It looks like disabling addons reveals the new bag slots in that case.
The guild Onslaught of Skeram (US) was able to speed-clear Blackwing Lair in just 19 minutes and 10 seconds, beating the previous record by over one minute!
You can find more details about the run by clicking on the image above.
It is worth noting that healers in the raid used a total of 59 Flasks of Distilled Wisdom throughout the run since it gives you 2,000 Mana instantly on no cooldown.
Watch the run over on Twitch.tv!
We recommend watching the VoD muted, as it contains strong language.
