Deaf Guild Defeats N'Zoth Mythic, Gets Cutting Edge

Recommended Posts

Mythic raiding takes quite a lot of coordination between the players and many still don't manage to achieve the Cutting Edge achievement, but today we have quite an accomplishment on the subject. Undaunted, a deaf and hard of hearing guild has managed to down N'Zoth Mythic without any voice comms (obviously)! Not only that, but we get to see their version of the now standard "nerdscreams" just as the kill happened! Their "comms exploding" chat pop-up is a particularly cool detail:

Huge congratulations to the guild, as this is truly an amazing accomplishment! Here's the full kill VoD:

And here are some comments from the reddit thread by the raiders themselves:

Whitely:
In case anyone is wondering, it took us total of 377 attempts to kill this boss! Yes, it's a bit a lot comparing to other mythic guilds but that's with a full no-voice guild with Deaf and Hard of Hearing players in it! It's a huge accomplishment for us!
...
Geddyn:
Recruiting has actually gone super well for us since the guild moved from Ner'zhul to Area 52. We've also seen a huge influx of new players since Wowhead did a feature on us a few weeks ago. As things currently stand, we're on track to have TWO raid teams in Shadowlands.

Also, we don't discriminate against hearing players, so long as they understand that we don't use voice chat. (We do occasionally use Zoom for ASL meetings on difficult bosses, which are transcribed for those who don't know the language.) We do have a few hearing players who participated in that Cutting Edge kill.
....
I think we will. We got a very late start to the tier, since the guild was on Ner'zhul at the beginning of the tier and couldn't consistently field 20 people to make any significant progress in Mythic.

After switching to Area 52, we were able to tackle Mythic consistently, although we still devoted time each week to Heroic clears for loot.

OP here - if you're interested in joining our guild we are always recruiting. There's no application process to join as a casual/social and if you're interested in SL raiding with us you can find out more about us at our website https://undaunted.enjin.com like how to join our discord or learn more about us by checking out the info tabs on top!

We are a guild founded by and for deaf and hard of hearing WoW gamers since Cataclysm but we do not make deafness a requirement for membership - we have hearing players who join for various reasons and we welcome you!
...
Yes that's true. We are based on NA but please don't be shy about joining our discord and use our discord as a social outlet. We have an @Europe role (as we do have quite a bit of EU deaf/hard of hearing players just hanging out in the discord!) and perhaps this would help you connect with other like minded EU deaf players. Discord link is a tab on the top of our website https://undaunted.enjin.com please come say hi!

the title should say Cutting Edge, not ATOC 😄

Yep fixed! Not sure what happened there, clearly wrote Cutting Edge in like the first sentence of the article, then proceeded to put aotc in the title AND social posts lol.

In my case it's not important you achieved cutting edge. I'm more impressed what you stand for. It's awesome to integrate deaf and hard hearing people and build a community around em. Congratulation for this REAL achievement!

      One of the cinematics that got us most hyped for its expansion when it first showed up, WoD's upgrade makes it even more impressive! SnazzyAI continues the WoW cinematic improvements, and it's now Warlords' time to both shine and get smoothed out! While the 4K upgrade looks great in its own right, it's the 48 FPS that's the bigger difference here, especially with the orc facial animations.

      It seems the pre-patch keeps bringing us new Scourge invasion-like oddities, despite the event not starting yet! The squish/scaling hits again, this time uncomfortably mimicking the real world, as we have another possible outbreak! This one isn't quite as lethal as the original Corrupted Blood epidemic, and it's a lot harder to spread, but there's still fun/mayhem to be had.
      The actual disease isn't anything new and has bee around a long time, as BlazingShadowAU and their group were doing ICC and when they were done they returned to the Great Seal, where people started dying all around them. They accidentally brought back Necrotic Plague, and the initial outbreak didn't quite last long as the disease isn't nearly as deadly as the old-school Corrupted Blood. However, if you have a group determined to have some fun with it...

      So, Necrotic Plague works differently since the pre-patch, as it apparently scales up quite a bit, to the point of 1-shotting players! Unfortunately this didn't quite work everywhere, and the Orgrimmar fields of Corrupted Blood death were not to be, with the main casualty in Org being the innkeeper and a few players. But, there was a better target available, as the scaling in BfA and Legion was quite deadly.
      It still took some effort, as the plague is on a 15 second timer and keeping the stacks high was part of the fun as it made it deadlier. And to do that you have to spread it to someone by dying, come back and get infected again by someone who has survived - and the higher the stacks get, the harder that is to pull off because players die faster and faster! Dispelling the disease also spreads it, but removes a stack, so there was probably a better way to get this done.
      In the end, the outbreak was limited to just a bit of fun in the Great Seal, as that's where the scaling was highest, and the close-by rez spot made spreading the plague easier.
      Unfortunately the reddit video embeds are still not working properly, but definitely head on over there and check out the full video!

      The stacks were getting pretty high at the end there!

      And so the group had a little bit of fun and there wasn't a full outbreak, with the Lich King's power growing a lot as players were dying all over the place and spreading the disease (perhaps if Bolvar had access to this, we wouldn't be in this whole Shadowlands mess to begin with). The pre-patch certainly continues to deliver on the weirdness, and we can't wait to see what it shows us next!

      The first Mythic Ny'alotha nerfs have arrived in the Shadowlands pre-patch. Blizzard reduced the health of enemies and nerfed Carapace of N'Zoth. More details will appear in today's hotfix update.
      (Source)
      Late yesterday, we made the following adjustments to Ny’alotha on Mythic difficulty:
      Damage and health of all enemies reduced 10%. Carapace of N’Zoth Infinite Void damage reduced by 50% per stack, Black Scar damage reduced by 10%, and Mandible Slam damage reduced by 25%. These hotfixes are live, and will appear in our next hotfixes update.

      Here's Rextroy's brand new video where he utilizes Shaman's Frost Shock and the Hailstorm that persists even when you switch specializations to one-shot players.
      Here's a bit of background information on how to perform the combo.
      Here's the Frost Shock combo in action.

      Learn more about how to reach Exalted with the Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour!
      If you're working on the 100 Exalted Reputations achievement and are still missing some reputations for the title and Pureheart Courser mount, we've got some good news for you!

      It's possible to reach Exalted with Gelkis and Magram Centaur Clans in Desolace under an hour. Note that both reputations count as one.
      If you completed the quests in Desolace before Cataclysm, you must complete a series of quests which take about an hour up to Death to Agogridon. Pick all quests in the surrounding area to get started. Don't forget to toggle the filter on your minimap to see quests that are below your level.
      If you completed the quests up to Death to Agogridon post-Cataclysm, talk to Karnum Marshweaver at 57, 48 who will provide you with enough reputation to reach Exalted with both factions.
