Echo Claim World First Lords of Dread, 9/11

Recommended Posts

A HUGE move from Echo today as they have not only shown an insane strategy to down the Lords of Dread, but then executed it perfectly to claim not only the World First, but also the lead in the Sepulcher race on 9/11 bosses!

The strategy involved the Necrolord Bonesmith Heirmir Soulbiund Forgeborne Reveries Forgeborne Reveries ability that revives you for a while after death, as they tanked the enraged dreadlords to gain more and more time, ending the fight about a minute after the actual enrage! Here's the full pull and raid composition:

Huge congratulations to Echo on both the strategy and execution. Now it's on to Rygelon, and that one... well, I don't want to say it's not doable since Echo are the experts in that, so let's see.

Now I don't really follow the RWF but something about 5 Healers and 12 Melee DPS seems so strange to me.

It is quite a specific boss yea - although weird comps like that are basically what the race is about, finding that ONE way you can take the boss down.

Dreadlords are 2 bosses on top of one another the entire fight, with a 20-sec phase that deals enormous raid damage, but Dreadlords take double the damage from AoE abilities for its duration.

Since the raid damage is predictable and comes in 2-min interval, Venthyr HPalas rotating Ashen Hallow (4min cd) and Kyrian Disc Priests rotating Boons/Raptures covers the burst healing (plus an abundance of raid damage reduction cooldowns), with HPriest to help sustain AoE healing outside of it.

As for DPS you have 4 Arms Warriors who are notoriously good at 2-target cleave (and also have 4 Rallying Cries), back up by Enh Shaman and their Windfury Totem, Frost DKs (4 AMZs in total) and Survival Hunters for the "AoE burn" since most of their ST abilities also dub as AoE, Havoc DH for magic damage buff, and a Warlock for... healthstones, I guess. Maybe Mythic requires a gateway.

      Content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      Blizzard clearly stated that guilds will remain single-faction in Patch 9.2.5 in a blue post about cross-faction instances.
      (Source)
      Guilds will remain single-faction, and random matchmade activities like Heroic dungeons, Skirmishes, or Random Battlegrounds will all remain same-faction (both because there is less faction-driven pressure around random groups, and to avoid compromising the opt-in nature of the feature by randomly placing a queuing orc in a group with a night elf). However, content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to break the system and create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The group went with a guild charter into Torghast and created a guild there. Probably any cross-faction content would work to replicate the bug. Players of the opposite faction were able to sign the guild charter it and when the guild was created, each player could invite players from their faction into the guild, meaning Alliance players could invite other Alliance players to join and vice-versa.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
       
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      Source.
      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      ...
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      ...
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.

      Content creator MGM found out during Patch 9.2.5 testing that cross-faction queue works for Timewalking raids, which is a neat feature!
      Cross-faction grouping comes with a few limitations; you must be Battle.net Friends with the person you're inviting or you both need to be members of the same cross-faction community. So far, we thought the feature was limited to Mythic+, raids, and Legacy raids.
      It turns out you can queue up for Timewalking raids cross-faction as well. You can learn more about cross-faction play in our overview.

      We're looking at some interesting Genn Greymane audio files from Patch 9.2.5. This post contains spoilers.
      The audio files play during the "Eyes of the Wolf" quest when Greymane sends you to meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken as they're gathering in Tirisfal Glades for an unknown purpose.
      Transcript
      Genn Greymane: You must don a disguise and travel deep into enemy territory. Do not let down your guard.
      Genn Greymane: In life, Calia Menethil endured more than her share of sorrow. She may not be a typical undead, but the Forsaken are not to be trusted. 
      Placeholder for tweet 1528767413696733184 Sylvanas no longer unites the Forsaken and your goal is to find out what they are up to. Genn also says "Calia is no typical undead". Do you think Genn will try to hunt her down or attack the Forsaken at their gathering?
      I wouldn't be surprised if he secretly planned a coup. After all, it was Sylvanas who killed his son Liam Greymane.
      Most of the Patch 9.2.5 content remains encrypted, so we don't know exactly what will transpire until the patch hits live servers.
