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.

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

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

      World Buffs are a very important part of the Classic raiding experience, both for the top-end, speed running guilds as well as a lot of the less hardcore ones, and the buffs themselves are somewhat controversial as they require a lot of additional coordination and effort, as well as pressure as 1 wipe will get a whole lot of people angry.

      One of three original World of Warcraft designers, Kevin Jordan, aka "the guy that designed all the spells in the game", has been talking about the buffs and how they came to be, as well as exploring why they're so important in Classic right now.


      "Just a bunch of dudes making content that was cool" is just the greatest thing to hear, as it showcases both the perhaps more creative way the game was developed and the problems that come with that more "free" way of doing things. He does also talk about logs and how he understands why players would use them there, and the discussion in the reddit thread is also an interesting read, going into the fast 1 night BWL and MC clears that utilize the buffs to be efficient etc.
