Raszageth's Inter Mission: Impossible(?): Vault of the Incarnates RWF, Day 7

Recommended Posts

Well well well well... Raszageth Mythic was upon us today and... yeeeea. Echo had a lot of progress on the boss and Liquid had even more, we got into the 150+ pull territory, both guilds got somewhat into the fight and reached some... difficulties - even with some nerfs that arrived. Let's take a look!

The very first phase of this 3-phase fight proved to be no joke as the boss just constantly pushed players off the platform and to their death, so most of Echo's day was figuring out how to get the damage in to transition into the intermission at 65% before the knockback breath, which is longer and longer every time it happens, yeets them off the stage. There were many tricks pulled to survive that by both Echo and Liquid, including some pretty cool chains of abilities like Evokers Rescue Rescue-ing Priests who would then Leap of Faith Leap of Faith Paladins, so the less mobile classes could live!

This also spawned a pretty great meme:

And the raid compositions even got a response out of the official Warcraft twitter:

Eventually, after a solid amount of hours they figured it out and managed to get by the first barrier of the fight, which also ended up being the final barrier of the day as well: the intermission. After barely making it on a huge 5-second lasting knockback breath, players need to go to two platforms where elemental adds are channeling and have to stop them. There's 2 platforms aaand, well, Echo didn't manage to clear even 1 platform with everyone heading over there (when the intention most likely is to split the raid between the two):

Here's their best attempt of the day, as they managed to get into the intermission pretty frequently in the last hour or so of their raid.

After that pull, they very quickly decided to call it a very early night, both because the fight was looking like it was definitely getting nerfed, and possibly because the EU reset was moved to 5AM CET on Wednesday, so if they wanted to raid then they'd have to start adjusting their sleep schedule now, and drastically (as they were raiding until 2 AM the day before).

Liquid started their raid shortly after that, and they seemed to be having quite a bit more trouble getting to the intermission, as they only had a few tries there over a lot of raiding hours. There were  also some nerfs to the encounter, but not extremely significant as they didn't seem to affect performance much:

  • Raszageth
    • Flamesworn Herald’s Flame Shield now absorbs 55% of its health (was 70%).
    • The initial cooldown time of Frostforged Zealot’s Shattering Shroud has been increased.
    • Players that are immune to the effects of Hurricane Wing are also immune to the effects of Hurricane Winds.
    • Fixed an issue where Discipline Priest Atonement was incorrectly being affected by both the damage increase and healing increase from the Focused Charge buff.

However, around an hour ago they had a perfect pull (No. 127) when everything went right and they performed phenomenally, getting VERY deep into the intermission, clearing almost all the adds that were needed, except...

That's right. They managed all that on ONE platform. Barely. As you can see there at the end of the pull, Raszageth just calls time on the intermission and starts nuking everyone, as too much time was spent there. On ONE platform. There are two. That's double. 2x even!

Joking aside, this tuning is either EXTREMELY tight, even including the second reset's worth of gear, or someone is missing something major about the fight, as the guilds are not consistently making it into the intermission, barely getting ONE platform cleared with the full raid on that side. This wouldn't even be that much of a concern if Christmas wasn't looming at the end of the week, especially with the guilds spending quite a bit of their time on re-clears and more splits when the resets come. Liquid did manage to get into the intermission much more frequently after this specific try, and on one of the following pulls (157) they actually managed to clear one full platform - and revealed some further truth:

So Rasz just starts off phase 2 after a while, with her giant  118 million HP shield up, spamming her huge AoE, with escalating damage, until the shield is destroyed - and Liquid only got one add platform cleared. There really must be something they're missing here because these numbers are very off. 

And here's one of Echo's latest pulls from their morning, as they run into the same issues:

All in all it was both a quiet day and a sporadically very exciting day on Raszageth, but that wasn't all that happened! BDGG got the World third on Kurog Grimtotem in their battle with Method, who had to end their day with a 2% best on the big tauren. Meanwhile Instant Dollars stepped up and got Kurog down to 23% during their non-day raiding pulls (after a Dathea World 4th),  as Skyline is progressing on the grimmest of totems as we speak, getting him to 68% in their 10 pulls so far. I also have to give a special shoutout to FatSharkYes, who didn't quite manage to down Dathea on their (also not day-raiding) evening, due to their heartbreaking 0.11% wipe, with 114 pulls on the boss.

So, Raszageth is very much no joke and will almost certainly require more nerfs, so now the question becomes when they will arrive and who will they benefit more. The US reset arrives today as Liquid will have access to better gear sooner but, as we've seen, that may not matter as much considering the mechanics here. Don't forget, this is literally just the INTERMISSION between phase 1 and 2 - and the boss has three phases. Yea.

Quick maths meme resurfacing on IV.

Wasn't even aware of that, not sure what it is - maybe I saw it somewhere and it stuck.

      We have quite a few class fixes in today's batch, both for PvE and PvP, as well as the Primal Chaos BoA vendor and more, including some Wrath Classic improvements!
      February 2 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Skull Bash will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting a Holy Paladin with Concentration Aura. Guardian Fixed an issue where Tooth and Claw did not correctly grant 15% magic damage mitigation. Evoker Temporal Anomaly can now be cast while moving when releasing it through Stasis. Monk Mistweaver Fixed an issue that caused Lesson of Anger to not duplicate some damage or healing sources. Items and Rewards
      Fixed an issue that prevented Blueprint: Utility Mechaclaw from dropping from the Caustic Mechaslime in Mechagon. Player versus Player
      Classes Evoker Quell will no longer trigger Precognition when successfully interrupting another player who is affected by Concentration Aura. Solo Shuffle Fixed an issue where summoned pets’ cooldowns were not correctly being reset between rounds. Professions
      Rabul of the Artisan’s Consortium now sells a Satchel of Coalescing Chaos that binds to your Blizzard Account. This item costs 80 Primal Chaos and provides 60 Primal Chaos to the character who uses it. Developers’ notes: We’ve heard and agree with feedback that players have amassed surplus Primal Chaos on their mains while their alts need all the Primal Chaos they can get. Some Primal Chaos will be lost in the transaction. This is because we want to make sure that while this is a great way for a main to help an alt, the best way to gear up a character should generally be via actually playing that character. Nonetheless, this should provide an additional use for your Primal Chaos, as well as a good way to get some powerful gear to your alts quickly. Inscription Fixed an issue with Darkmoon Decks where the Sagescale Sigil’s shuffle-when-jumping mechanic was being extended to all Darkmoon Decks. Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Classes Death Knight Fixed an issue where creating your first Death Knight would fail on the first attempt. Druid Nightsong Regalia (Tier 😎 4-set bonus heal now correctly triggers on each Rejuvenation. Developers’ note: The once-on-every-other-Rejuvenation cast is true to the behavior in patch 3.3.5. However, the wording of the Tier 8 set bonus does not reflect this, and instead indicates that Rejuvenation should provide an instant-heal on cast. It seemed like the fair thing to do would be to reimplement the once-on-every-Rejuvenation-cast trigger rate.

      Blizzard commented on their recent decision to make Primal Chaos transferable between alts.
      Earlier today, we reported about "account-wide" Primal Chaos and now Blizzard has commented on the quality-of-life improvement that went live via a hotfix.

      We’ve heard and agree with feedback that players have amassed surplus Primal Chaos on their mains while their alts need all the Primal Chaos they can get. With a hotfix that went live about 12 hours ago, we’ve added a method for transferring Primal Chaos to other characters on your account.

      It's been a while since we looked in on the Mythic+ logs and now's the perfect time, as we get to see the results of the new patch tuning! It's still looking pretty yellow on top, but there are plenty of changes all round as well, with Fire coming back with a vengeance.
      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:
      Fortified , Bolstering, Storming (and Thundering )
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top of the top percentiles didn't change much with the new patch, with Subtlety and Outlaw switching places in 1 and 2, we do see a big change after that, as an entirely different Mage spec has come to claim the bronze! Fire rises out of the bottom of the chart and claims 3rd, taking it over from Arcane which sees itself 8 spots down. Balance remains strong and doesn't budge from 4th, while Destruction rocket-jumps 12 spots up to claim 5th. Windwalker and Havoc only drop 1, while Shadow takes its cue from Balance and stands still, Enhancement drops a little and Feral rises 2 to close out the top 10. The bottom 3 shuffle around a little but are still the same old 3 specs, with Frost DK getting the short end of the stick this time around.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      The top 4 for the generalist bracket reflects the top percentiles with the patch changes, but No.5 diverges from that pattern and sees Windwalkers... remain in place as last time we checked here. Havoc remains stable as Destruction takes over Demonology's place, Shadow rises and Arcane drops. 

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Tanks
      Prot Warriors have taken the helm in Mythic+ and moved past Blood DKs, as Vengeance remains in third and Paladins move past Monks, with Guardians down in last - but at least they're getting some significant buffs next week!

      Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Healers
      Preservation stands at the top, just like in raids, and Resto Druids are extremely close behind, as the top two switch positions, while Holy Paladins shoot into 3rd, moving past the Priests and leaving Monks down in the dumps.
