True World First Hakkar with 5 High Priests Alive

Recommended Posts

There's been a lot of discussion and complains about the "World Firsts" in WoW Classic, with some community members complaining that the term cannot be correct since the bosses were already killed in Vanilla, and others pointing out that it's simply a WF for WoW Classic. Well, this particular World First won't have any such issues, as the kill was indeed the first of its kind to ever be done in World of Warcraft in general!

The guild BLaDE of KiLL has managed to accomplish a feat that no Vanilla guild had before, which is to down Hakkar the Soulflayer in Zul'Gurub without killing any of the 5 high priest bosses before him. This was a feat considered basically impossible back in Vanilla, but it seems 15 years of experience and private server access, as well as some very impressive gear, has made the difference!

The boss himself took under 1 min and 30 seconds, with the entire raid taking them 8 minutes (which makes sense when they're skipping pretty much everything).

The hard mode for the boss adds an ability for each High Priest not killed, making him progressively more and more difficult, even able to down tanks in seconds. So how did they do it? To start they had 4 fury/prot mix specced warriors so someone could keep agrro due to the insane DPS needing to be put out, as well as a whole lot of world buffs as well. The rest of the raid consisted of 11 warriors total (of which 3 had inv_sword_39.gif Thunderfury, Blessed Blade of the Windseeker and  inv_axe_12.gif Annihilator for debuffs), 3 paladins, 1 mage, rogue, warlock and druid, and 2 priests, with the lock using spell_shadow_unholystrength.gif Curse of Recklessness, so it seems that short kill time was actually absolutely mandatory, as they even skipped a hunter for spell_nature_drowsy.gif Tranquilizing Shot in order to max the DPS . A lot of their players are also Rank 1 in PvP, so their gear is pretty much Naxxramas level already, which explains the fast kill time and being able to do it at all.

Here's one of the tanks' PoV:

This feat was also attempted by current Game Director Ion Hazzikostas and his guild Elitist Jerks back in the day, but even they weren't able to get it done, wiping at 2%! Now the Classic client isn't the same as Vanilla was, so there's plenty of room to argue here, but one thing is certain, this definitely is a World First, regardless of how you look at it!

Huge congrats to BLaDE of KiLL!

These "WFs" are meaningless imo.

Just because people weren't around when the game launched doesn't mean they can claim the titles of the OGs.

This is like China going to the moon and saying World First Moon Landing!!! (by china using a different spacecraft).

Nah man

Typically I'd agree that the classic WF are a shell, but this one actually has some teeth. Skipping everything was deemed suicide back then. This also blows the worlds fastest record out of the water, which means it's at least going to hold one record even vanilla people can't dispute. Makes me more and more sad how the game is a shell of itself though, mostly due to min-max mmo culture and limitless shared information.

I knew ZG wouldn't put up a fight since BWL didn't and it was clearly the harder of the early raids. I doubt if even Naxx will since 99% of people did it in Wrath and it's not drastically different.

I don't know if this is harsh (not intended), but alot of the reason(s) that people couldn't get gear for raids and do things for and in raids was because of how much info there was lacking, leaving people doing either nothing or dumb things in hindsight.

When you realized it wasn't just your character that gained experience and leveled up over 15 years.

Obviously you haven’t heard of the deplorable actions this Group of people did.

At least one guild killed the hardmode hakkar in vanilla WOW.

It was the guild "The 7" which was as famous as "Stars" in China between Vanilla and TBC. They killed the hardmode hakkar with full T3 gears before patch 2.0 was released in CWOW.
They only posted the kill thread and video at Chinese wow forum, so most of the Chinese WOW players knew the kill of hardmde hakkar, yet they were not sure whether it was world first.


This is the thread link they posted: ngabbs.com/read.php?tid=1027991
And the video: www.bilibili.com/video/BV1tJ41177Ub?p=2

For the thread they posted, I use google translation to get the English version content:

[Exploration and Leisure] [One District] [Flame Peak] Seventh Heaven Guild FD Full Skill Haka & Free Raiders and Video [2007-06-26 00:06]

The last challenge before 2.0! The first paradise of the Seventh Heaven Guild of Flames in District I [Haka]

The idleness before the version update made us feel lack of challenges, so the day before the update, we rushed into Zug with the idea of ?playing full-skilled Haka. After entering the door, he jumped directly into the river from the left, went to the Hakkar stairs to clean up a few mobs, started to tease Hakkar, changed staffing in half, and temporarily borrowed the account of an old acquaintance from another guild.

When I first saw Haka, I was surprised that he was much larger than normal, about 2/3 black dragons, but I forgot to take a screenshot.

Based on the available information and our one-night trial, we summarized the full-skilled Haka skills as follows:

1. The guardian of Yeriklik, silence for 5 seconds and add about 2000 points of damage, once every 21 seconds
2. The guardian of Marri usually launches on the highest hatred target. The target will appear with a disappeared thief icon, permanently clearing a large amount of hatred from the target. Four tanks must take turns to accumulate hatred. The last successful treatment was ot 9% of the time. But we finally rushed it off.
3. All poison skills are around 450 damage every 2 seconds, can resist, the frequency of launch is relatively high
4. Strengthen and rage skills, rage can be concentrated, control MT, old talk
5. Stun the current highest hatred target for 6 seconds. At this time, MT is the most likely to be crushed and die. If you encounter the silence of the first skill at the same time, the only way is to pile up the health of MT and pray that Haka do n’t crush. , All MTs must maintain the stone shield potion throughout the journey.

Among these skills, the most important are skills 1 and 2. The silence is added with 2K damage, and the tank is easily socked; after 2 bloodsucks, the hatred will be very chaotic.
After trying, we found that the most crucial point is that the guardian of Yecrek has a blind spot, the principle is the same as BWL 4 BOSS, and the location is about 7 levels on both sides of the stairs, and the poison can also be avoided here.
According to the characteristics of BOSS, we sent a combination of 4MT, 4 priests, 3 paladin, 1 druid, 2 mage, 4 thieves, and 2 hunters. 1 priest + 1 druid is responsible for the safety of this group of people. Evade the protection of Yelik, and immediately come out to add blood to the current MT when others are silenced; 4 tanks, when 3 tanks have Marri's guard or one tank has twice Marri's guard, all The thieves disappeared immediately (the thieves' talents are all prepared and disappeared twice). The mage is mainly a sheep-controlled MT with BOSS, with DPS. After the third blood-sucking, the treatment of hatred has been out of control, and the top three priests in the amount of treatment have OT, but in the end we still stepped on the full skill Haka!

The moment when Haka is down, it prompts "Copy progress has been saved"

The personnel configuration for the battle is as follows:

LOOT chart (most of the combatants are the main force of 1 regiment, and almost no one needs ...)

ps: Some friends asked us if this is the world FD. We dare not say that, after all, there are so many WOW players, there are hidden dragons and tigers everywhere, and there are many people in the low-key guild, but at least it is Realm First, ha ha

      Here's another crazy accomplishment, as Rommildrey managed to finish up their huge Classic goal JUST before Burning Crusade Classic hit, and got 60 characters to level 60 without boosting, dungeons or questing!
      Yes, you read that right, all 60 characters were leveled exclusively by killing mobs, completely reliant on rested experience. So how long did this all take? Around 316 days played, including everything related to it (bank transfers etc), and if you calculate that you'll probably conclude there was some multiboxing happening, or they spent basically ALL their time on leveling for the past 2 years.
      While the below images only show 58 characters, Rommildrey assures us that there were 2 extra level 60 Warlocks there, but they had to be deleted. And really, why would someone lie when 58 is just as insane a number as 60.
        
        
        
      Source.
      And here's a whole lot more info from Rommildrey on this awesome goal that they accomplished:
      In WoD I decided to level 100 characters to 100 for the fun of it, as leveling was super easy with recruit a friend, heirloom gear and just overall more smoothed out leveling. It didn't scratch the itch for a hard leveling experience, so when they announced classic WoW I pretty much instantly knew I wanted to do 60 60s, knowing that the leveling in the game is the slowest and hardest that it ever was.

      I was motivated the whole way through because I knew that I wanted to do it, I knew it was going to scratch that itch and make me stop wanting to do big insane projects like this. I think it worked, I only kinda want to do 70 70s for Burning Crusade.
      ...
      I wouldn't say I had a favorite zone, I would basically find humanoids of the levels I needed at that particular time so I rarely interacted with the rest of the zone apart from the inn keeper and and the mobs I was grinding.

      There were plenty of areas that sucked at times, like grinding the trolls in northern STV, had tons of traffic from ZG and a huge number of 60s helping level 30 warriors grind for their Whirlwind Axe. Not often very friendly. The blood elves in Azshara were also pretty painful at lower level, their aggro range is huge and their heal is massive if you fail to interrupt it.
      The gear I was leveling with was basically just the best greens for that class, passed on by the other characters that didn't need it. So when a green str/agi item drops on my warlock, instead of vendoring it I can give it to a warrior, rogue, feral druid or paladin etc. So for the most part I had best in slot green gear on most of my characters.
      ...
      I love grinding, so to me it was basically just a super chill grind the whole way through until I was nearing the end and closer to pre-patch. Going mob by mob means I had a lot of free time to watch shows, movies, listen to and discover new music etc.
      ...
      Haha I was waiting for someone to call me out on that! In my final days of grinding 2 of my warlocks to 60, I had to continue grinding despite knowing they were going to be deleted in a few days to be replaced by paladins. I assure you they did exist!
      ...
      About 316 days played working on this project, including banking, transferring items etc.
      ...
      I found 3 pairs of Edgemasters, 1 Wardens Staff, 2 Glowing Brightwood Staves and probably 45-50 other random epics worth very little. I also got every single bad BOE blue possible, just not a single good one.
      ...
      Until I decide if I want to continue on to 70 70s and 80 80s, all of my Faerlina and Stalagg characters will probably just rot, I was fully prepared for blizzard to cap characters allowed to be brought into BC since boosting was such a big thing, so I never really had any intention of doing anything with them after classic wow.

      I do plan on going fairly hard in Burning Crusade, I will probably get use out of most of my Herod characters.

      A really crazy feat, and we hope to see Rommildrey again with 70 level 70ies in two years time!

      With World Buffs leaving the Classic meta tomorrow with the Burning Crusade's launch (at least for those that decided to move on to the expansion), awesome and funny machinima maker Gorak decided to give them a fond farewell, by comparing the original Vanilla experience with the buffs to the way they were handled in Classic! The results are pretty great:

      Blizzard have announced specific plans for the Classic Era realm connection process, detailing which specific servers are getting connected in both US and EU regions.
      Classic Era Realm Connections (source 1, source 2)
      US:
      As we approach the moment when WoW Classic players will make the choice to move on to The Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5.1) or stick with Classic Era (version 1.13.7), we will be connecting many Classic Era realms during maintenance on Tuesday, May 18.
      This means that in each region/locale, we will create connected realms among groups of Classic Era PvP realms, or groups of Classic Era Normal realms, or Classic Era RP realms.
      In this region, we will connect:
      Anathema, Arcanite Reaper, Bigglesworth, Blaumeux, Fairbanks, Kurinnaxx, Rattlegore, Smolderweb, Thunderfury, and Whitemane Arugal, Felstriker, and Yojamba Ashkandi, Mankrik, Pagle, Westfall, and Windseeker Atiesh, Azuresong, Myzrael, and Old Blanchy Benediction, Faerlina, Heartseeker, Incendius, and Netherwind Earthfury, Herod, Kirtonos, Kromcrush, Skeram, Stalagg, Sulfuras, and Thalnos Our goal is to maximize the opportunities for Classic Era players to establish strong communities and carry on enjoying their way of play. We hope to see healthy populations of connected realms for Classic Era players, and we’ll continue to monitor and consider further connections in the future.
      Thank you!

      Blizzard is lowering the price of the WoW Classic cloning service from $35 to $15, in response to some fairly heavy community criticism on the decision.
      (Source)
      Salutations, WoW Classic players! We’d like to inform you about a course correction we’re making.
      When you log in to WoW Classic after the patch next week, each of your Classic characters will choose between staying in Classic Era (version 1.13) and progressing to Burning Crusade Classic (version 2.5). For those who want to play a character in both versions, we’re offering a service to purchase a character clone in the other version of the game.
      This service – providing a player with a second copy of a character in a different game – is new for us. Our original concept of the value of this service was largely based on how we price other optional items and services. We want players who choose Classic Era realms to feel as though their choice comes with the possibility that they’ll be able to build relationships and guilds with other players they can count on.
      However, over the last week or so, we’ve gotten a very large amount of feedback from the community, and we’ve decided to lower the price. A lower price will likely still accomplish our goals with the new service, while allowing many more players to explore the option of playing characters on both Classic Era and Burning Crusade Classic realms.
      After careful consideration, we’ve decided to lower the price of a cloned character in WoW Classic to $15.00 USD ($20.00 CAD, $20.00 AUD, $24.00 NZD). You’ll see the lower price in-game when the service becomes available next week.
      As always, we deeply appreciate the passion and thoughtfulness of the WoW community. We play WoW alongside you, and we can’t wait to join you next week on Classic Era realms, in the Burning Crusade Classic pre-patch, and as we step through the Dark Portal with you in June.
      Thank you very much,
      – The World of Warcraft Development Team

      Blizzard just clarified that the character transfers will be returning on pre-patch day, soon after maintenance as they still need to keep them offline until then due to the characetr copy snapshotting. We also found out there would be a new gold limit on them, raised to 5,000 gold! 
      Server Transfers (source)
      Hello yes! We intend to turn on the character transfer service soon after realms go live with the update next week. We need to keep transfers offline until we’re done snapshotting all characters, but that will be finished during maintenance, so realm transfers can be resumed thereafter.
      On a related note, we’ve made a small change to realm transfer restrictions. Previously, a player-character was restricted to taking a maximum of 2000 gold with them. Going forward, that maximum has been raised to 5000 gold.
