Top Race to World First Guild to Offer Up to 10 Million Gold Per Item in Sepulcher

Recommended Posts

The Race to World First is almost upon us, with the Heroic week coming in only a couple of days, and things are already heating up. The current No.2 guild, formerly Limit and now renamed to Liquid after their joining the Team Liquid esports organization, have offered huge sums of gold for Sepulcher of the First ones items, while others are offering quite a bit for even Sanctum of Domination ones.

In case you weren't aware, during splits week the top guilds split their raiding rosters and alts throughout many, many raid groups and fill them up with guild fans, stream viewers, and anyone who is willing to help out - also paying out large quantities of gold for those that get the drops needed and trade them to guild players. This has been going on for many races, but it seems the prices have drastically inflated.

Tuesday brings Heroic splits week to the RWF and Liquid are upping their game by quite a bit, as they are offering up to 10 million gold for individual items!

This is in stark contrast to their previous race philosophy, when they were not offering any gold for items, but instead giving away AOTC carries, raffles and similar. The big change this time around is the trading restrictions and tier pieces being worth so much, since you can't trade items at all unless you already have that same item level from before, making each one much rarer.

Pieces, the current No.3 guild, had originally gone the highest back in the Sanctum of Domination race, offering around 1 million gold per item, but even they have significantly upgraded for the Sepulcher:

Meanwhile, the current No.1 guild, Echo, are also offering rewards for items as they did before, but they didn't escalate from the last raid quite as much:

However, they are offering the same large sums for Sanctum of Domination droops today:


At the end of the race when it's all said and done, guilds have been known to spend over 300 million gold, but that number will inflate quite a bit this time around, at least for Liquid, as the Sepulcher is the final raid of the Shadowlands, the new esports partnership for Liquid and them wanting that No.1 spot back very badly is already pushing that number up. It's going to be an incredibly interesting race to say the least, especially with 3 untested and completely unseen bosses that weren't ever put on the PTR showing up on Mythic week for the first time. I can't wait!

Nah...there's no such thing as pay to win in WoW. World first race is becoming more and more of a joke.

Indeed. Everyone knows the only thing stopping guilds from competing with Limit/Echo in this race is how much gold they can toss around.

Hmm, I know I dropped that /s around here somewhere.

Maybe...maybe not...but it would sure be one hell of a different race if that kind of gold wasn't being made available.

edit: plus with actions like those posted here it also starts to become a popularity thing. More fans = more gold.

How are Russian guilds affected by.... recent events?

This is hardly the place to discuss politics.

For now, WoW playerbase remains unaffected, but no one can tell what kind of developments are going to happen, both online and offline in weeks to come.

You can PM me if you want to know something specific, though.

When the currency of passion is replaced by the currency of gold. 😬

I think you'll be surprised by the RWF viewership this time around.

      We have a very Dracthyr-looking piece of concept art from way back pre-Vanilla, as xperio28 spotted a bulkier version of the new race coming in Dragonflight in the Art of World of Warcraft book!
      There's been a lot of talk about the look of the Dracthyr, mostly focusing on their size and bulkiness, and while the art below almost certainly isn't of this specific race, as it was made pre-Vanilla WoW, it's looking very similar:

      Source: xperio28.
      The text is very hard to make out, but enigmapenguin and YendorWons in the thread may have figured it out, at least partially:
      Greater whelp grown to man size will hunt other dragon whelps then larger dragons feed on The whole "feed on" aspect is particularly interesting, as there's plenty of speculation going around on whether or not Galakrond, the OG dragon-eater will have something to do with Dragonflight's story (especially with the potential for the Infinite dragonflight's involvement).
      We've have plenty of bipedal dragon-like creatures in WoW over the years so the connection isn't direct, but it is interesting to see how far back the idea of playable-looking dragon race goes, especially since we know the original plan was to have many more playable races, including naga.
