World First N'Zoth Mythic By Complexity Limit

Recommended Posts

a7iOeWS.jpg
 

After leading the entire raid and grabbing 8 World Firsts, Complexity Limit have taken that final step and claimed their ninth as well, with their Mythic N'Zoth kill! The final boss of Ny'alotha and Battle for Azeroth has fallen and brought the first US raid endboss World First since the first tier of Mists of Pandaria in Heart of Fear in 2012. Huge congratulations to Limit who really dominated this raid, their lead never being in question, bumping up against many bugs and issues along the way, but pulled through nonetheless.

Here's the World First kill directly from the event stream, starting in the mythic only phase, with some 40% left on the boss:

Some truly impressive play, with the new tactic of having a player outside the raid throughout the whole raid, the GM and raid leader Max in this case, calling all the shots and looking over the players for almost all the bosses, which was somewhat adopted by Method as well, on one or two bosses. Method are currently on 33% and are the closest guild to Limit, with Pieces, Alpha and Aversion behind them. Also, over 100,000 people watched live on Max's stream as the boss went down, with another 80,000 on Method's with another at least 50,000 across all the other player streams.

As far as the US 16 hour advantage, the general consensus among all WF raiders is that "a World First is a World First", meaning that it's just about the first guild to down a boss, regardless of the US (and EU) advantage. In this particular case that doesn't seem like it will be relevant, as Method are very unlikely to down the boss in the next 16 hours, with the same applying to Alpha and their 30-ish hour disadvantage.

N'Zoth died after 274 pulls on the third day of the second week, which is perhaps just a tiny bit disappointing in terms of boss length, but with Corrupted items having an incredible impact on this raid, which was showcased by the postponed nerfs. It was still an incredibly impressive performance by Limit, showcasing their amazing players and preparation, strategy and execution. Huge congratulations all round once again!

The endboss and the raid in general had a much higher amount of drama than usual as well, starting way back on Heroics with some guilds getting two reset's worth of loot from N'Zoth, continuing with Ra-den where Limit, Method and then everyone else abused his short reset timer to stack up some big buffs to their opening DPS, and then heading to Mythic N'Zoth himself who had a massive bug get saved by Blizzard despawning the boss for Limit, but then also accidentally despawning him for everyone on the US servers, a big hotfix mid-progress that was then reverted the next day, and finally the crazy move of Blizzard presumably completely scrapping the final Mythic-only phase and more. We also took a look at whether the boss really was as buggy as it seemed compared to previous expansions, which you can read about here.

You can check out everything that's happened so far in your race coverage hub, or follow the race to World 2nd over on Method's site or stream, as well as celebrate with the champions on Complexity Limit's stream!

Limit played really well this tier almost unbelievably so, I've been following the race with so many streams open (though mainly Asian ones) and Limit's play has been really amazing.

While their choice of having Max watch from the outside and command/guide the raid is smart and interesting it still takes good players to actually perform those actions and execute on it and that has been the most impressive thing to watch I think.

Gratz to them, but I hope that the "coach" thing doesn't catch on.  I personally don't like it at all.  Also not a huge fan of the casters this race, seemed more spastic and annoying than informative and engaging.  Just my 2 cents

I'm not a fan of the coach thing either, but it's 100% going to be the new normal.

I hate that everyone still wants Method to beat it in 16 hours now so they can try to say Method should be number 1. That argument doesn't hold water anymore since guilds who watch the world first get so much strat info. I guarantee if they do it, we will hear that quite often. I am all for a global launch to make things more interesting.

Grats Limit! Very well deserved.

Wow, so what if they were being coached, it was a different tactic used and it paid off for them. If other guilds try it in the future then good luck to them, I don't see a problem with it. That would not make me stop watching world first streams so I won't cry about it like some people. Method were the best before N'zoth died and now they are not so they will be feeling the pressure. Good job Limit, well deserved!

And I get that the coaching thing will be the norm now, but it just means that I won't watch anymore race to world firsts. 

That's a pretty extreme reaction but ok.

If that really stops you from watching, you're just looking for an excuse. Almost every "e-sport" (and EVERY regular sport) has a coach. League, DotA, Counter Strike, etc. You might not consider it that way, but there's clearly enough money they're treating the world first races as an E-sports tournament.

The 21 man coach thing i think is fine. If you think about it, it kind of accomplishes the goal of weak aura's. If you watch methods attempts, you'll notice commands pop up in weak aura's and on timers like "Pre-spread right" , reminiscent of what max was calling out in real time. So in a way, a 21m coach is basically just doing what several mods that are already in game do, but in real time and fluctuate per pull, and make communication easier because everyone is communicating to max, and then he's relaying it back as commands rather than people having to think on the fly if their weak auras are innacurate or they put themselves in a bad position for a pull.

There is litterally no reason to not have a coach because the only thing that matters is taking the bosses down the most efficient way possible. people hung up "skills" should reconsider.

      Temple of the Jade Serpent has been cleared by a Level 20 player in 1 minute in MoP Remix!
      How is that even possible? The player has collected 8,000 threads, and Level 20 seems to be the cap for trial characters. This creates a new kind of twink where your power increases, but your level stays the same.
      Here's the full video of the clear!

      We're back to Aberrus in this week's look back at the logs! Devastation floats to the top, as Unholy fights to retain its overall No.1, while Assassination puts in a very strong showing as well. Let's get to it!
      Note: We are using Normalized scores instead of raw DPS for the Warcraft Logs rankings. The u.gg rankings at the bottom are raw DPS. Normalized scores take into account the outlier boss fights where certain specs could stack massive DPS (due to the nature of the fight, whether it's AoE spam or something else), which would then affect their overall score for the whole raid.
      Mythic
      Overall Damage 95th Percentile
      Devastation is profiling itself as the new overall-all-3-raid No.1, as it follows up its great performance in Vault with the top spot here in Aberrus! Only its poor performance in Amirdrassil is keeping it from the very top, but Unholy still holds on to that one, with another very solid No.3 this week. With Assassination it's a bit of an Aberrus-only great performance for the spec in No.2, while Arms is doing well across the board, easily grabbing the overall third spot! Shadow is at its best in Aberrus this week, while Retribution is very comfortable hovering around the middle of the top 10. Frost Mage is up while Frost DK is down as the two meet, while Arcane and Havoc close out the top 10. Subtlety is definitely the consensus worst spec in Season 4 Awakened raids, even beating out the incorrectly logged Augmentation for the prize. Fury joins the bottom 3 this week.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      Assassination takes the lead and shows just how good it is in Aberrus, as it's doing quite well in all the raids here in the generalist bracket. Arms is still the definitive No.1 overall, while Retribution is steadily moving on up grabs 2nd, with this strong third spot this week.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
      Unholy remains in charge overall, despite Assassination's win this week, as the two specs clash at the top, with Arms sitting comfortably in 3rd and Retribution in 4th across all three raids.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      As usual, Heroic doesn't really care what raid is up this week, as the rankings are pretty stable across the board, with Retribution doing a little better this week.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.

      U.GG Raw Mythic DPS Rankings
      U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks. This chart is for Mythic only.
      Aberrus is definitely the right spot for Assassination, as the Rogue finds itself on top in the raw DPS chart as well! Retribution is the overall winner across all three raids, however, with Arms coming in second. Devastation is doing really well both here and in the Vault, but Amirdrassil is still its weak spot.

      It's been a big week for game improvements, with many hotfixes coming in across three game modes, so here they all are! Remix: Mists of Pandaria lead the way with a huge amount of changes, mostly in the form of reparations for various hyperspawn farm spot removals. Many sources of Bronze and XP were buffed, scaling was nerfed for higher levels, and many bugs fixed.

      Meanwhile in Cataclysm Classic, there was a lot to fix after launch, from issues with high level PvP gear mistakenly becoming available, to Honor vendors missing, direct access to Vash'jir, many quest fixes and more! Even regular old Dragonflight 10.2.7 for a fix in!
      Hotfix Summary (Source)
      10.2.7
       
      Non-Player Characters
      Doc Nanners in Valdrakken will again offer players "A Cataloger's Paradise" upon reaching Renown 8 with the Dragonscale Expedition. WoW Remix: Mists of Pandaria
      For everyone that did not take advantage of the frog farming, we’re providing three additional quests with large Bronze rewards for reaching levels 50, 60, and 70. These quests will become available from Momentus the item upgrader at the Jade Forest Infinite Bazaar. These milestone quests will grant characters an additional 3,000, 7,000, and 30,000 Bronze, respectively. Level 70 Timerunners will be able to complete all three quests immediately for 40,000 additional Bronze when this change takes effect. Normal scenarios, Normal dungeons, Heroic scenarios, Heroic dungeons, and daily Infinite Bazaar quests now award a Cache containing 5x as much Bronze as before. Developers' notes: We intend for players to earn more Bronze as you level up, so you can more easily start purchasing upgrades and rewards. At level 70, these caches now award 8750 Bronze (this was previously 1750 Bronze). Fixed an issue where the Celestial Court bosses on the Timeless Isle would occasionally despawn. Fixed a bug affecting the scaling of certain Tinker gems. Putrid Waste enemies in Throne of Thunder no longer deal extreme amounts of Putrify damage. Brewmaster Blanche now queues you for A Brewing Storm when asked. The Paragon of the Mists title is now account wide. Added clarity to the quest "The Great Water Hunt" to speak with Mudmug before gathering water. Nostwin now sells Glyph of Shadow for Priests. Fixed an issue preventing the quest "Where are My Reinforcements?" from proceeding as expected. Improved the respawn rate and treasure from rares and rare elites across Pandaria. Increased the amount of bronze and raised the drop chance for threads of time from airborne bronze. Fixed an issue where players who faction-changed could not use the group finder for dungeons and scenarios. Fixed an issue preventing the quest “Riding the Skies” from granting the appropriate Cloud Serpent mount. Fixed an issue causing Wise Mari in the Temple of the Jade Serpent to not spawn Corrupt Living Water as intended. Hutia was out of control in the Jade Forest, and has been convinced to relax a bit and stop hitting so hard. We have made the following changes to improve Thread of Time gain for the Cloak of Infinite Potential. Our goal with these additional items is to give players access to more Threads of Time from daily repeatable sources. These should serve as readily attainable power-ups from a wide variety of content, so players can enjoy the breadth of Pandaria while also gaining additional power. There are four new items that grant players escalating amounts of power for the Cloak of Infinite Potential: Minor Spool of Eternal Thread Lesser Spool of Eternal Thread Spool of Eternal Thread Greater Spool of Eternal Thread Players will be able to find these new items from a variety of solo and group sources, ensuring all players have accessible ways to improve their cloak: Infinite Bazaar Repeatable Dailies First-Time Daily Scenario, Dungeon, and each LFR queue World Bosses Remix Achievements Each of these achievements are available for additional characters to complete as well for bonus Bronze - and now bonus Spools of Eternal Thread. Troves of the Thunder King scenario on the Isle of Thunder We’ve made the following changes and bugfixes are intended to address concerns about the balance of low- and high-level players in various Remix content. The health of creatures in heroic scenarios has been decreased by 20% - 25%, based on the players’ levels. Higher level players will see enemies incur a larger decrease. The health and damage of creatures on the Timeless Isle, Isle of Giants, and Isle of Thunder has been reduced. Several spell gems (that were not scaling up or down correctly based on player level) have been adjusted so that they provide a more-appropriate scaling effect. This includes Cold Front, Windweaver, Vampiric Aura, and Lightning Rod. Spell gems with shielding effects should no longer cause threat. Fixed a bug with Righteous Frenzy not canceling upon the end of combat. Timerunner’s Vial mana regen significantly increased. Adjusted the reputation granted from Granite Quilen to be more in line with expected values. Fixed an issue in Guo-Lai Halls causing trap tiles to flicker. Shirts and tabards can now be purchased from Larah Treebender <World Apparel> at any Infinite Bazaar, Mei Steadypaw <Barber> outside the Shrine of Two Moons and the Shrine of Seven Stars, and Hanchoon Yi <Guild Master> at Paw'don Village, Honeydew Village, Shrine of Two Moons, and Shrine of Seven Stars. Fixed a bug preventing Timerunners with a legendary Infinite Cloak of Potential from accessing Ordon Sanctuary as intended. Fixed an issue with the spawning of Voress'thalik which prevented the completion of "Devastation Below". Fixed an issue preventing players from learning Amber Pterrordax. Fixed a bug causing Gulp Frogs to unintentionally drop Lesser Charms of Good Fortune. Enemy power scaling, particularly in group content, has been adjusted to be less aggressive. This is particularly applicable in the player level 40 - 70 range, before players have been able to power up their cloak, upgrade their gems, and increase their item level. Gear drop-rates have been improved from world rares, rare elites, and quests. This will help players who have had their item levels fall behind as leveling speed increases, especially at higher levels when cloak bonus experience is powered up. Developers’ notes: This will also increase player Bronze and appearance acquisition by increasing the number of items to place into the Unraveling Sands for additional Bronze. The first-time bonus for queueing each LFR wing will grant a Thread of Experience in addition to the existing Lesser Bronze Cache. Developers’ notes: This should improve LFR as a viable choice for leveling main characters and alts, without players feeling like they need to grind the same LFR wing repeatedly. We have added bonus experience to each boss in normal dungeons and scenarios so they are a viable alternative to questing. Bonus experience has also been adding to the last boss of Heroic Scenarios. Heroic dungeon bosses will continue to drop bonus experience. We’ve increased the number of prismatic gems dropped from bosses in normal and heroic scenarios and dungeons. Developers’ notes: The increased stamina offered by Legendary Prismatic gems boosts player survivability considerably. We have increased the Bronze granted from all qualities of Bronze Caches by 25%. Developers’ notes: These caches are available from a wide variety of sources, both solo and group. This includes the Minor Bronze Cache, Lesser Bronze Cache, Bronze Cache, and Greater Bronze Cache. Fixed an issue where Sha-Skin Vestment was marked as Cosmetic instead of Cloth armor. Cataclysm Classic
      Fixed an issue where boosted characters were not properly learning their class and spec's Armor Proficiency. Fixed a bug with achievement completion tracking for the meta-achievement Classic Dungeonmaster. Death Knight Brutal Gladiator gear on the Outland Armor Quartermasters in Stormwind and Orgrimmar has been discounted so that their prices match those of other classes. Mor'norokk the Hateful can no longer be erroneously killed by players on the quest "On Second Thought, Take One Prisoner". Fixed an issue that was removing the Dormus' Rage aura from players who were teleported to Feralas. Fixed a bug preventing Diabolical Plans from dropping in Ashenvale for Horde players wanting to do “Never Again”. Cataclysm Honor Vendors should now be available in Stormwind and Orgrimmar to purchase ilvl 352 Blue PvP Gear for Honor Points. Conquest and Elite Conquest vendors will not sell anything until Arena Season 9 begins with next week's regional resets. Fixed a bug with the Thirty Tabards Fixed a bug preventing Engineers and Alchemists from making discoveries while crafting. Crafted “Vicious” gear that was unintentionally created at item level 377 has been adjusted to item level 339. In "Stonefather's Boon", the Stonefather's Boon buff duration has been reduced to 10 seconds (was 3 minutes). Fixed some quest issues. Erunak Stonespeaker should now still be visible to players who have advanced further in the quest line at the original location to turn in “Call of Duty”. “All or Nothing”, “Blood and Thunder”, and “Defending the Rift” should no longer fail to complete if you are sitting or mounted. Players experiencing phasing issues from Wrathgate or Battle for Undercity quests that are deprecated in Cataclysm Classic should now be in the correct phase in Orgrimmar and Undercity. Players may skip directly to the beginning of Vashj'ir using a portal in their respective cities. “Vashj'ir: Call of Duty” will remain available to players who skipped directly to “Sea Legs”. Hunter Hunter traps are now faster and more consistent in their arming times. Ancient Hysteria from Hunter Core Hound pets has been renamed Primal Rage. The debuff it causes has been renamed from Insanity to Fatigued. Fixed a bug preventing pets from displaying in the Stable as intended. Mage When Combustion gains damage from Ignite, that Ignite damage will not get increased a second time from Fire Mage Mastery Flashburn. It was already increased once by Flashburn when first applied. Shaman Fixed an issue with Shaman Greater Fire Elemental dealing too much damage with its Fire Nova spell. Warrior Fixed an issue preventing Slam from being logged properly in the combat log.

      The Tusks of Mannoroth cosmetic cannot be learned by non-plate wearers in MoP Remix. Find out what Blizzard had to say about the issue.
      Starting with the War Within pre-patch, you can easily collect transmog for other classes, but since MoP Remix gear will be gone and the inventory wiped when the limited-time event ends, many players were left wondering what's going to happen with their Tusks of Mannoroth cosmetic when the characters are ported over to retail.
      It turns out Blizzard will fix the item soon, but have no ETA on when that will happen.

      I purchased the Tusks tranmog item on my shaman and cannot use it
