SK Pieces to Stop Raiding and Retire From the Race to World First

Recommended Posts


The long-time No.3 of the Race to World First, SK Pieces, has called it quits on the race and seemingly guild as well, as players were told that the guild would not be raiding anymore. After a grueling progress race in the Sepulcher and them stopping day raiding at a certain point, it seems it was all too much as we found out today:

The guild had just signed up with the SK organization before the Sepulcher race and finished in 4th place despite the difficult conditions and prolonged progress, so this does come as a bit of a shock. Here's what guild founder and organization CEO Luml had to say on the matter in a TwitLonger:

SK Pieces Disbanding

It saddens me to say after 10 + years of working for this guild to become the best it could be that I've decided that it's coming to an end.
The market has become very competitive when it comes to the amount of hours everyone from top to bottom has to put in, it's just no longer sustainable without sacrificing everything Irl.

I wanna thank everyone from the people that we're here in Cataclysm to the world first on Uu’nat to our short journey with SK gaming. You all touched my life and gave it meaning and I’ll be forever grateful for that.

Wherever all of you end up I’ll be cheering for you and who knows maybe we will meet under different circumstances in the future.

I’ll be taking a break and a few steps back to evaluate what I wanna do personally with my life. Maybe I’d be part of RWF in some other way on a smaller scale. The scene is growing and it’s an interesting landscape where some people finally get rewarded for their time and talent.

To Echo and Liquid I hope you kill it and bring the wow scene to new and greater heights.

The guild held many World 3rd endboss kills (Sanctum, Nathria, Ny'alotha), as well as win in the Crucible of Storms with a World First on Uu'nat, and have been around since 2010. We're sad to see them go and wish the players all the best.

      Blizzard has updated some abilities cast by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the first Release Candidate of Patch 9.2.5.
      Introduction to the Season 4 Affix
      The Season 4 affix is called Shrouded and causes groups of mobs to hide a dreadlord that gives you stackable buffs upon death.
      Shrouded - Nathrezim infiltrators have disguised themselves among enemies throughout the dungeon. Cartel Ta will reward you handsomely for assisting in their capture. How Does the Season 4 Affix Work?
      At the beginning of each Mythic+ Dungeon, there is a bounty hunter NPC who offers you Critical Strike/Haste/Mastery/Versatility buffs for each dreadlords you help capture, stacking up to 20 times.
      Bounty: Critical Strike - Critical Strike increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Haste - Haste increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Mastery - Mastery increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. Bounty: Versatility - Versatility increased by 2% for each dreadlord captured. This effect stacks. After you make your choice, you will be granted a 2% buff to the secondary stat of your choice.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators
      Throughout the dungeons, some NPCs will have a purple aura and the Disguised debuff. These will transform into Nathrezim Infiltrators when you enter combat. Nathrezim Infiltrators replace regular trash mobs in dungeons, so this might directly affect Mythic routes.
      Nathrezim Infiltrators cannot be stunned or death-gripped. The spells are not interruptible.

      When the dreadlord is captured you will receive another +2% secondary stat increase (on top of what you had at the beginning, as this buff stacks up to 20. Shortly after the dreadlord is captured, you'll receive another buff which restores 6% health and mana every second for 3 seconds.
      Restoration - Restoring 6% health and mana every 1 sec. What Abilities do Nathrezim Infiltrators Use?
      Nathrezim Infiltrators will use 3 abilities. The first one is a frontal cone which reduces healing received for a short duration, the second one heals the dreadlord for a portion of the damage inflicted and the third one puts the player into a statis.
      Blizzard adjusted two abilities used by Nathrezim Infiltrators in the Patch 9.2.5 Release Candidate this week. We highlighted the changes below.
      Vampiric Claws - Strikes the target inflicting 50 45 Shadow damage and healing for [ 10,000% of E1 ]% of the damage dealt. (20 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 1.5 sec cast)
      Carrion Swarm - Inflicts 35 38 Shadow damage to enemies in front of the dreadlord and reduces healing received by 25% 50% for 10 sec. (100 yd range, 3 sec cooldown, 2.5 sec cast)
      Nightmare Cloud - Creates a wandering Nightmare Cloud for until cancelled. Coming into contact with a Nightmare Cloud afflicts players with [email protected] (3 sec cooldown, 2 sec cast)

      The Simpsons have been running for almost 30 years now, and it just so happens that the animated sitcom "almost predicted" the events of the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      "The Old Man and the Key" was the 13th episode of Season 13 that aired back on March 10th, 2002. Here is where we first saw the famous "Old Man Yells at Cloud" scene that later became a meme.
      With the launch of the Shadowlands pre-patch, Blizzard released the Dark Abduction cinematic, where we learn what happens to the racial leaders after the events of the pre-patch, and here is where it gets interesting!
      Sylvanas abducts some of the leaders, and on the Alliance side, we have Genn Greymane yelling at her as she disappears.
      Funnily enough, Greymane looks like he is yelling at a cloud in the cinematic, which clearly indicates that the Simpsons have predicted the events of the Shadowlands pre-patch 18 years ago!

      It has arrived! The very first release candidate for patch 9.2.5 is upon us, indicating that the patch will be coming pretty soon. While we don't have a strong indication for a specific date, as release candidates come and go during the PTR cycle, it is definitely close, as we've seen as little as under 2 weeks from the first appearance of a candidate to the actual arrival of the patch.
      It is important to note that while 9.2.5 does bring some massive changes, including cross-faction activities, Season 4 will not be arriving at the same time as the patch, so we'll have to wait longer for Fated raids and the new Mythic+ affix and dungeons.

      You can check out everything that's coming in the patch here.

      Last week we made the big switch to focus on Mythic logs and today we're going to be taking a look at the tank and healer situation in the maximum difficulty for the Sepulcher, as well as our usual DPS roundup.
      95th Percentile
      Destruction moves even further ahead in Mythic this week, as we see some additional movement in the top 3, with Frost DK dropping 2 spots to Demonology and Survival. There's actually been a lot of 2-spot moves this week, starting with Windwalker's rise to 6th, moving past Elemental and Retribution, who are having a bad week as Unholy also slapped them both down to move into 8th, but at least they stay in the top 10 (and swap places). Havoc remains firm at No.10, with Frost taking the Mage crown and finishing the week in 11th. The bottom remains much the same, with only Assassination managing to crawl out of there, rising 5 spots!

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      A very firm top 5 in the generalist bracket as we see no changes from  last week, but then a bit of a reverse from the high percentiles as Unholy drops 1 spot to Marksmanship. Havoc is just as stable here, but a little bit higher up, with Windwalker and Retribution closing out the top 10. 

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tank DPS and Healer HPS
      While tank DPS isn't exactly the most crucial stat there is, we at least have something to compare them with here, so let's take a look. Guardian has stepped it up a notch as they take the crown, but both Paladins and Warriors are very close, with DKs not too far behind either.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers are very stable, as the Mythic rankings look identical to the Heroic ones from a few weeks ago, with Druids and Monks dominating.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Frost DKs are back at No.2 on Heroic, as Demonology rules over all and Destruction remains in the middle of the pack. Havoc is rising this week and has positioned it self at No.4, knocking Shadow down one, as Balance hops 1 up into 6th. Subtletly has a big drop this week, as it moves all the way down to 14th from its previous top 10 spot.
