Raszageth Mythic World First Kill by Echo

Recommended Posts


And it's done! Raszageth has fallen on Mythic difficulty as Echo takes her down after a very tumultuous progress period, with several nerf rounds (including one at the very end). After a grueling 263 pulls they manage to pull it off and get through all three phases of the boss, despite it looking pretty impossible back in the phase 1 intermission.. and in the phase 2 intermission... and so on, before the holiday-motivated modifications by Blizzard. A third Race to World First win in a row for the guild, after the Sanctum of Domination and Sepulcher of the First ones wins.

After 3 massive nerfs waves, and the 4th just before the kill, each taking a major chunk out of some part of the fight or another, the boss fell over and Echo got their World First.

Here's the full kill try:

The official congrats:

And the raid composition:


It seems there was a last minute nerf involved as well, as Blizzard decided to significantly tune the boss one last time. This hasn't been 100% confirmed by Blizzard, but many experts watching the race think so, including Liquid's GM Max, and Echo's own Naowh:

And there's this datamining snippet as well:

From Raider.IO's coverage:

We have now heard from multiple sources, including Maximum from Liquid, that there have indeed been some hotfixes that reduced the difficulty of P3 and allows guilds to continue the fight quite a bit longer than in earlier attempts.

The specifics, as far as we can tell and were told, are as follows:
  • Slightly adjusted the timing of events at the start of Phase 3
  • Reduced the rate at which motes of Storm-Energy are spawned
  • Slowed the rate that the Raging Storm closes in

While no official bluepost confirms these changes yet, datamining hotfix files that were pushed somewhere around 20-30 minutes ago confirm these changes as well.

Comparing individual pulls from earlier in the day, and the kill, it seems fairly clear that these changes happened sometime prior to the RWF kill from Echo.

This doesn't tarnish their achievement whatsoever, as they have shown an incredible performance throughout the tier, pulling off unthinkable plays and getting the boss down to 8.34% in less than 250 pulls already.

The nerf did arrive while Liquid were still not back for their raid day, however, Echo were in the lead by a significant margin before it as well (not to mention the kill pull was extremely clean and a great one in general, regardless of the nerfs), having gotten the boss down to 8%, compared to Liquid's 14%.

You can also check out a more detailed look at the nerfs over on Raider.IO's progress coverage page.

IDK man I'm a Liquid fan but they just throw every tier on the last boss lol.

This is like the 4th time.

Can't take anything away from Echo. They get it done.

It's the fact that Blizzard waited for Liquid to log off, then nerfed the boss

This can easily be fixed for the future. Just announce a time each day that nerfs will go live (if any) and nerf on the same time each day, once per day. This way all guilds will know when to expect it and can plan around it. It will also add an element of suspense "should we push? or wait for the nerf timer!"

It will be fair that way.

      During one raid, we got to see the Fyr'alath bad luck protection buff work wonders, yielding 12 drops from a single Fyrakk kill.
      Sacolas shared an interesting shot on Reddit, showing 12 Fyr'alaths dropping simultaneously! This might just be the record for the most Fyr'alath the Dreamrender drops we've seen from a single kill to date. Sadly, the original poster missed out on the quest item, and looted instead a Greater Ember of Fyr'alath. Here's hoping for better luck next week!

      What's the highest number of Fyr'alaths you've seen drop from one kill? Let us know in the comments below!

      The World Quest for Fathom Dweller is finally up on EU servers after almost a year. Check out how to summon Kosumoth the Hungering and get the mount before others do!
      Here's what the mount looks like.

      The quest won't pop up by itself. Instead, you must unlock it.
      First, download a WoW Addon that shows you coordinates to figure out where you are and where you need to be. Something like MapCoords or TomTom will do. Head to Broken Shore 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul. Head to 57/52 and enter the Musty Cave. Click on the Mound of Dirt that is hard to notice. You will receive Weathered Relic. Return to 37/71 and talk to Drak'thul again and go through all his dialog options. Now comes the more difficult part. You must click on 10 Hungering Orbs in the exact order. If another player clicks on them, it takes approximately 20 minutes for them to become clickable again, so they have a cooldown. Here are coords for all the Hungering Orbs: Azsuna: 37/37: The first orb is located in a secret cave behind the tree. Stormheim: 33/75: The second orb is located in a cave where Kangaxx is. Val'sharah 41/80 Find another secret cave located inside a tree. The third orb is guarded by an Elemental.  Broken Shore 31/76: You will find an underwater cave that hides the fourth orb. Azsuna 59/12: Behind the crystals is yet another secret cave. The fifth orb is located on the ground next to a broken table. Stormheim 67/14: Near the underwater shark is a crevice that leads to a cave that contains the sixth orb. Try to avoid the steams, as they deal high damage. This orb may be the most difficult for you to get. Highmountain 52/36: Enter the Haglands and follow the path to your right. Above halfway down (55/36), you want to jump down to a ledge with a cave. Do not enter the first cave since it's a decoy. Instead, turn right and head to the actual cave to find the seventh orb. Azsuna 54/26: Under the bushes near a tree is another secret cave. The eighth orb is somewhat hidden, too, located in a bush near a pillar inside the cave. Broken Isles World Map 50/91: Find underwater wreckage to get through a secret cave. This one is hard to explain, so we advise you to check out MadSeasonShow's video (timestamp). You will find the ninth orb to your right. Broken Shore 37/71: Head back to Drak'thul and click the final orb on the table behind him. After you click it, the DANGER: Kosumoth the Hungering World Quest spawns at 46/49 on the Broken Isles World Map. Kill Kosumoth to receive Fathom Dweller. Note that you have a chance to get the Hungering Claw instead of the mount. It just so happens that the reward is the mount right now. Check out the video guide by MadSeasonShow for more details!

      Blizzard have announced that they will be significantly changing the Oracle Priest Hero Talent tree, following player feedback and internal testing. It seems the tree's focus will no longer be on replacing Power Infusion.
      Oracle Hero Talents (Source)
      Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the Oracle Hero Talent tree.
      One of our goals in sharing these Hero Talent trees so early in the process was to give us adequate time to evaluate and change things as necessary. After reading your feedback, discussing the talent tree, and playtesting the concept internally, we’ve decided to revisit the Oracle tree, especially regarding its focus on replacing Power Infusion.
      Thanks again!

      The sixth week of Patch 10.2.5 is here and we've looked at the current Mythic+ Tier List!
      The following post is based on data from U.GG. Therefore, the data presented here may differ from Petko's Mythic Tier Lists maintained on our site.
      How the Data is Calculated
      U.gg's tier list is created by evaluating damage and healing scores from the very best players and factoring in the frequency of each spec's appearances in the highest rankings of the current Mythic+ season. The tier list of each spec is determined by its effectiveness and prevalence at the highest levels of Mythic+ play.
