Here we are in day 25 of the race, still with no World 2nd, 6 full days after Method's WF! There are technically 22 guilds fighting for that silver medal, but the most likely to take it are Exorsus, Alpha and Style War, who've had more time on Kil'jaeden.
While Exorsus do have a 3 day advantage over the two Chinese guilds, Alpha and Style War have been going at it very hard, each racking up over 900 wipes to date. The incredible thing is that after said 900+ wipes and 11 days of tries on the final boss of the Tomb, Alpha have "only" gotten him as low as 39%, as the dark phase of the encounter is quite crazy. We don't have any info on Exorsus' progress or wipe count, but they did announce they would be taking it easier from last Saturday, so their lead may not be there at all.
You can check out the full try here. You can also check out Alpha's progress live on their stream)
A lot of people are commenting on how it's taking such a log time to get a World 2nd, but if we take a look into the (actually not that distant) past we can see that the 6 days it's taken to get a 2nd place finisher isn't that unprecedented - we only need look back to WoD and Blackrock Foundry to find Paragon taking 5 days to catch up to Method on Blackhand. We then move a bit more into the past, to the Mists of Pandaria and Throne of Thunder, for both Ra-den and Lei Shen. While Ra-den doesn't technically count due to his limited attempts, it still took 7.5 days for Blood Legion to finish up after Method's win, and the same two guilds were 5 days apart on Lei Shen.
The real target for Kil'jaeden at the moment is Firelands Ragnaros from back in Cataclysm, where Method took 7 days to clean up the raid after Paragon's World First. KJ seems poised to break that record, and we don't really have any stats for Vanilla and BC, so after another day he may indeed get another accolade to his name. We also have to mention the Lich King, again not really comparable to any of the above due to his limited attempts, but it did take For the Horde 16 days to get that silver after Paragon's win. All of the above stats are for the raids' maximum difficulties and for 20/25 man mode.
We also got some more info on Method's Kil'jaeden experience, with Justwait's stats for their progress pre and post-fixes (Y = combat time X = pull) :
Another strange factoid is that Method actually downed KJ on the same day as they did Archimonde in hellfire citadel, 2 years earlier.
So, 22 guilds at the final boss of the Mythic Tomb of Sargeras, three in serious competition for the silver medal, and Method taking a well deserved vacation from progress. Who do you think will fill out the top 3?

It seems we're getting some more tuning next reset. A lot of it is actually tuning the class legendaries and it's not that many classes that will be affected: Frost DKs, Ret Palas, Rogues and Subtletly in particular, as well as Arms Warrs are getting some slight to not so slight changes!

We're looking to make the following changes with maintenance in each region next week:
Frost Fixed a bug preventing Hungering Rune Weapon from generating a Rune at the correct rate of once every 1.5 seconds. All damage abilities increased by 5%.
Blade of Justice damage increased by 10% (unchanged in PvP). Crusader Strike damage increased by 10%.
Mantle of the Master Assassin duration reduced to 5 seconds (was 6 seconds). Subtlety Denial of the Half-Giants cooldown reduction reduced to 0.2 seconds per combo point spent (was 0.3 seconds).
The Great Storm's Eye damage bonus per stack reduced to 2% (was 4%). Ayala's Stone Heart now procs 40% less often for Arms Warriors.

Converge has been around since WoW Vanilla and has been raiding together since Molten Core; most of our members have been playing together for years. In its older days, when most of us where young, we were more raid focused and demanded a lot from our members. Over the years we had to adjust our playtime and priorities with a growing list of RL responsibilities and are now a two day raiding guild; we had to cut our total hours spent playing WoW but we still remain just as competitive and result oriented.
Basics: be ilvl 890+; 52+ points in MS Artifact Weapon.
Raiding 101: be able to execute/avoid fight mechanics; communicate in English and use a microphone.
We raid twice a week, a total of 6 hours; attendance of 90% is mandatory. We require you to function at 100% from the second the raid starts all the way to its end; if you cannot commit to a raiding schedule and be online on time this is not a guild for you.
Currently we are trying to build up our roster to start Mythics.
Raid Times: 8:00 PM – 11:00 AM Eastern Time – Monday/Tuesday.
Recruitment: Ranged DPS / Heals / Melee DPS (Rogues only)
EN 7/7 Heroic
ToV 3/3 Heroic
NH 10/10 Heroic
ToS 4/9 Heroic
