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!

      This week's Patch 9.1.5 PTR build has arrived! The Available in Eight Colors achievement is now account-wide, Timebound Ruminations now boost your Companion to level 30 instead of granting 5,000 XP, and more.
      (Source)
      Achievements
      Available in Eight Colors – This Achievement is now account-wide and grants all color options for the X-995 Mechanocat mount to all characters on your account. Dungeons and Raids
      Timewalking New: Legion Timewalking Timewalking Mage Tower Testing of this feature will be available for 24 hours, starting October 21 at 10:00 a.m. PDT. Visit this forum thread for submitting your feedback on this feature. Items and Rewards
      Timebound Ruminations – Set an Adventures companion to level 30. Requires one companion to reach level 40. Cannot be used on companions level 30 and above (was grants 5000 experience points directly to a Adventures companion of your choice). (This change will be available in a later PTR build) Developers’ note: After reading player feedback feeling that the Anima cost was too high for the amount of companion experience granted, we made changes to the item to set the companion to level 30 instead. The original design of the item was intended to be a supplemental augment to get companions through very low levels quickly, and not to be replacement for interacting with the system. Upon further inspection after player feedback, we agree that cost was too high for 5000 XP and made the changes to be a level boost to 30 instead.

      Yes, I can confirm that we intend to offer bundles of realm-to-realm character transfers for a discounted total price in a future update to World of Warcraft and the in-game Shop. This new offering will allow players to select multiple characters that are on the same account and move them all to a destination realm in one purchase.
      We don’t have the final sizes, pricing, and date these new bundles will become available just yet, but we’ll let you know all of that as soon as possible.

      The upcoming "Sylvanas" book by Christie Golden will be delayed and out on March 29, 2022, instead of February 22, which gives us a pretty solid hint at when we could expect Patch 9.2 to go live.
      Christie Golden is currently writing a book about Sylvanas. It was supposed to come out on February 22, 2022, according to Amazon, but today, those who pre-ordered the novel received an e-mail about the delay.
      It's reasonable to assume that Blizzard would like to have Patch 9.2 up on live servers when the book releases, as it possibly includes some interesting story spoilers. It also happens that March 29, 2022, is Tuesday, as pointed out by @Tyrsenus.
