      So we've seen a lot of crazy things in the Amirdrassil Race to World First, and despite the top two spots being taken already, I couldn't skip this one. Chinese guild Skyline, playing on Taiwanese servers, have been in the top 5 for a long time now, getting as high as 3rd. They have been struggling a little in Amirdrassil, or rather with one specific boss.
      Tindral Sageswift, Seer of the Flame has been the bane of pretty much every guild other than the first three to down him, but Skyline actually reached the insane mark of over 1000 pulls. Now, the boss isn't exactly a short one either, with 3 phases and a total length of 8 minutes. The earlier pulls were shorter, from 3-6 minutes, but that's a LOT of time.
      The kill itself was pretty dramatic too, so here it is in all its glory, after 1004 pulls. The World 6th, Asia 2nd Tindral Mythic kill:

      Now, Skyline aren't the only guild with some crazy pull counts and time spent on the boss, as guilds that still haven't downed the boss (but are close) are sitting at almost 800 pulls themselves. And so congratulations are certainly in order, as a pre-nerf kill is still very impressive. Now let's see how they do on Fyrakk!

      We've seen geo-guesser type games already and now it's time for a Wordle version! Wowdle asks you to guess the character based on attributes you find out after first typing a random guess and then narrowing it down. If you're into World of Warcraft lore and enjoy a good guessing game, thismight pique your interest.

      Reddit user Zen15 updated his WoW-inspired Wordle game after receiving feedback that the game was too easy, and he still considers it to be in an alpha stage of development.
      As you can see from the screenshot, today's objective of the game is to guess the name of a WoW character, with hints leading you toward a correct answer according to the categories of the character's expansion, gender, race, zone, and class.
      I managed to guess my Wowdle for the day, so head on over and give it a shot yourself and let us know if you did too.
