Potential World First World Boss Solo Kill: Valinor Falls to a Warlock

Recommended Posts

p1ukljz.jpg
 

Here comes a big one as the first raid boss of the Shadowlands has been soloed! While it's "only" a world boss, it's still a pretty big deal, and seeing Valinor, the Light of Eons fall in Bastion to a lone Warlock is awesome and impressive, and it's most likely a World First as well!

Bliztivision made use of a very powerful buff to enable the kill, with Theotar's Fury Theotar's Fury (Damage taken reduced by 60%; Damage done increased by 150%; Haste increased by 20%) coming from the Venthyr chapter 5 Covenant campaign quest Disloyalty, alongside the Assist Assist ability from the same quest, which calls down Draven to do some damage. It still took quite a few attempts and Bliztivision had to fight through personal mistakes, DCs and the most difficult thing of all - keeping other players from hitting the boss! While there were players that came up and attacked it, Bliztivision would just reset it and start over, with the key move being phasing to the Moonguard server which isn't as populated. In the end there were 6 minutes of no interruptions, after about 3 hours of either failed or interrupted attempts.

Here's the video, including a detailed explanation of the build used, the quest buff, PvP talents and more at the end:

The closest we've seen to a true raid boss solo is the 3-man Shriekwing and Artificer Xy'mox in Normal Nathria, and considering the buff that was needed to pull this one off it may take a while until the next non World Boss solo appears.

So congratulations to Bliztivision on the very clever use of game mechanics here and on the most likely World First World and even raid boss in general kill!

99% sure it's not a world first, I've seen people solo world bosses since SL came out and I've done it myself with Nurgash.

Is there any video or logs or similar for that? Basically I couldn't find anything so assumed it was the first, and haven't seen any soloing in-game, there's always at least some people that come in and help. I'd assume if someone purposefully went and tried to not get any help like this guy did they'd announce it somewhere.

      We're back with the weekly Mythic+ updates, as this week sees Fire rocket even further away from the other specs and Fury rises the most among top players! Luckily Fire will be toned down come 9.1, but it's going to remain the extreme top dog for a while more.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Inspiring, Necrotic (and Prideful).
      All Keys
      Fire remains far above all the other specs this week in the 95th as even Balance and Outlaw, who were hanging in there the last two weeks, fall back down with the rest of them! The two specs also switch places in 2nd and 3rd, as Fury is the main mover in the top, jumping 2 spots to land just outside the top 5, as Affliction falls one to accommodate it. Frost Mage jumped the most spots overall, however, sneaking into the top 10 with a 4 spot leap, as Assassination drops a few to make room.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All percentiles follows the top ones this week, with Balance taking 2nd and Fury rising, with Elemental actually topples Marksmanship, unlike in the 95th.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      The +15 crowd is as stable as ever, with only Elemental rising a significant amount, and Assassination falling off 3 spots but remaining in the top 10. Feral had a decent week, dragging itself up from dead last a whole 5 spots, leaving Demo and BM to languish at the bottom. Increasingly this bracket seems to be the actual most realistic benchmark for the specs, as more and more players play in this particular sandbox.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Th twenties are actually quite stable this week and it seems the Subtletly game is up, as it spends another week down around the bottom. Shadow also dropped a little, with the biggest mover being Feral, who went down to the penultimate spot.

      In this week's 9.1 build, Blizzard made the legendary Hunter bow from Sylvanas upgradable.
      Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, the legendary Hunter bow dropped by Sylvanas Windrunner in Sanctum of Domination, can be upgraded with two items that drop on higher difficulties.
      Wraithwisp Sinew drops on Heroic difficulty and improves the bow to item level 246. Ethereal Fletching drops on Mythic difficulty and the item improves the bow to item level 259. Hunters will be able to obtain Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, which grants them the Wailing Arrow ability, and a quiver (Dark Ranger's Quiver) with a unique effect that synergizes well with the bow (Withering Fire) in Chains of Domination.

      Wielders of the bow will also earn the following Feat of Strength achievement that was added this week in Build 39015 - Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper.
