Aberrus Mythic Race to World First Day 3: 4/9, Liquid Enter, Many Guilds Compete

Recommended Posts


It was another big day in the race and this time we even had quite a few top guilds enter and get some kills! Liquid ended the day strong but there were more guilds progressing on un-killed bosses than ever, with some World Firsts on the menu as well.

The first part of the day was all about the Forgotten Experiments, as more and more guilds ran up against the first real test of the raid. 3/9 was now a common spot be in, with over 90 guilds ending the day there. A very intense battle took place across the (CET) day and into the evening, as guilds like Conspiracy, Tony Halme Pro Skater, Sabotage, Veneration, Vesper, Melee Mechanics, Honolulu and more trying to get that World First. However, in the (CET) evening some top guilds decided to finally join the fray, first with FatSharkYes moving into Mythic, followed by BDG.

The two quickly overtook the other guilds and one-shot most bosses leading up to the Experiments, and in the end it was the obese sharks that took the fourth boss down World First, after a 1% wipe and 12 pulls:

BDG also moved past the other guilds, some of whom had been working on the boss for 1-2 days, and grabbed the World 2nd.


Rashok, the Elder had been almost entirely ignored up until that point, despite being available at the same time as the Experiments, but now he was the only way forward, so we once again saw a buildup of guilds gathering. FSY and BDG gave up after a few tries, the EU guild going to sleep and the US one back to splits and Mythic+. This once again created some serious competition for the World First, and this time it was Vesper, Melee Mechanics, Vision and Instant Dollars going at it. Vesper held the lead a while, but as soon as Instant Dollars got to the boss it just clicked for them. Previously the first few tries for any guild came to around 50-60%, and the then best was around 45%. But, at pull 2 of Rashok, Instant Dollars just destroyed the boss's health and managed to get it down to 21%, a pretty incredible feat. The next pulls weren't as spectacular, but ID later proved that it wasn't just a fluke, as they got another great pull, this time at 23%.


While all this was happened Liquid had entered the raid. After almost 3 days of non-stop splits the guild had racked up 442 boss kills between Normal and Heroic to gear up their characters, with the help of... well their helpers. As they 1-shot the first two bosses they went directly to the Forgotten Experiments, and while we may have been expecting just another 1-shot, the boss actually was much harder than the others, even for Liquid! It took them 5 pulls to take it down, and they headed to the Zaqali after, actually wiping there once. After that it was time for a break, but progress continued and they found themselves in front of Rashok, the Elder.

Here's the item levels and tier set bonuses for the guilds that pushed on Rashok:


Liquid's very first pull instantly became the best on the boss, as they got him down to under 20%. The second pull was even lower, as Liquid dropped a healer to try and take the boss before the scaling damage got to be too much, and they got the boss to 15% on pull 2, and then even further down to 8% on pull 3.

Liquid is still going at it right now, still at their 8% best, so if you want to catch that potential World First, head on over to their stream.

Update: After two 1.6-1.7% wipes, this happened:

Aaaand then this:

I can't really express just how great it's been covering all these different and new guilds fighting for World Firsts, despite everyone being aware that whenever the top guilds arrived they would grab whatever was available in terms of WFs. Even the progress graphic is looking much more colorful and cool, with many different guild claiming first kills! The rest of the logos on there will almost definitely be white and/or orange, but this same-week Mythic isn't quite as bad as I had feared. Splits as a GOOD thing for us viewers? Now that's a weird one.

At the end of the day we had 10 guilds in the top 4/9 pack, all standing in front of Rashok. Echo and Method came in but are still on their splits/Mythic+ regiment, but we should be seeing them in Mythic by the end of the day.

      Season 3 week 2 is behind us and we have some very solid data to work with! Augmentation is the king of the hill as Arcane drops a fair bit, and Fury is on the rise as well. Also don't forget, we just had some class tuning this week which may impact the below rankings this week.
      Warcraft Logs Points
      The below 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.
      All Keys
      95th percentile DPS
      It seems Arcane's rise was fairly short-lived, as last week's No.1 finds itself down in 6th, with Augmentation taking over the 5-man scene. The Evoker leads Outlaw and Fire in the top 3, with Havoc and Demonology looking in just behind, also having moved past Arcane. Balance is the most stable spec in these first few weeks, both here and in raids, as it holds on to No.7. Fury is very much on the rise, up 5 spots and pushing Assassination down to 9th, with Beast Mastery closing out the top 10. The other two Warlock specs find themselves at the very bottom, joined by Marksmanship.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      Arcane only drops 4 spots in the generalist bracket, as Aug still sees its way to the top. Havoc is also doing slightly better, as it rises 3 spots to the tail end of the top 3, while the Mages stick together beneath it. Balance is still stoic in 7th, as Fury moves to 9th and Assassination closes out the top 10. Things are very similar to the top percentiles here, more so than usual, as we see the bottom 3 is the same as well.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      U.GG DPS Rankings
      U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks.
      The top 2 remains the same in the pure DPS rankings, but Outlaw gets replaced by Demonology in third. Arcane actually moves up a spot here, as Arms drops two, with Enhancement pushing up as well. At the bottom we're seeing the same issues with Augmentation we've seen in raids, as their raw DPS is not being measured correctly on Warcraft Logs, with other specs getting the benefit of what is supposed to be the Evoker's damage. You can watch this video for the details.

      Mythic+ All Keystone DPS rankings by u.gg.

      For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs and u.gg. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides, as well as our Mythic+ guides and Mythic+ tier list.

      Get Tender Every Month
      At the first of each month, players with an active account in good standing will receive 500 Trader’s Tender automatically every month from a chest called the Collector’s Cache. If you don’t have active game time on your account or aren’t a subscriber at the start of a new month, don’t worry. Your Tender will be awarded on the first day of the month when you do have game time or an active subscription. This will be the same amount for everyone, regardless of how you pay for your game time.
      The Traveler's Log
      Complete monthly activities listed in the new Traveler’s Log. Each month features a rotating, themed set of activities. These activities provide the opportunity to earn up to 500 additional Trader’s Tender. There’s only a set amount of Tender you can earn each month through completing activities, so you won’t need to complete all the ones in the log each month. You’ll be able to pick and choose from a variety of fun in-game activities to easily earn Tender. Players can choose to earn by continuing to play the game as they already do, such as completing quests, competing in battlegrounds, participating in holiday activities, and even running Mythic+ dungeons. But you can also choose to take part in activities uniquely designed for the month.
      Freeze an Item
      Before the month comes to an end, if you haven’t purchased that one “must-have” item yet, don’t worry. You can “freeze” an item so you can purchase it later. When you freeze an item, it will stay available month over month until it is purchased or replaced.
      If this month’s offerings didn’t have the items you wanted, you can hang on to your Trader’s Tender to spend later. It won’t go anywhere, and unspent Tender will continue to accumulate each month.
      What a Tender Moment
      As a way of saying “Thank you” to the community for continuing to play World of Warcraft with us, we are awarding a bonus 500 Trader’s Tender to players who purchase Dragonflight and add it to their account†.  This bonus Trader’s Tender will also be rewarded retroactively to players who have already purchased Dragonflight. Players can collect this bonus Trader’s Tender from their Collector’s Cache.
      Learn more about the Trading Post in our previously published news post on the official site.
      *The Trading Post feature is not available in WoW Classic titles.
      **Requires World of Warcraft Subscription or Game Time
      ***Requires Level 10 to access the Adventure Guide.
        †Bonus Trader’s Tender is granted only once per Battle.net account.

      Returning items are highlighted in a separate section in the Trading Post UI in Patch 10.2.5.
      Blizzard continues to refine the UI in WoW and Patch 10.2.5 is no different. The latest update includes a new section within the Trading Post UI that informs you about items that were previously on the Trading Post.

      The latest Patch 10.2.5 PTR build adds a new Sylvanas quiver. Will the Banshee Queen return in Seeds of Renewal?
      We haven't heard much of the Banshee Queen ever since the Shadowlands epilogue, but a new item surfaced on the 10.2.5 that mentions Sylvanas, specifically her quiver. We don't know at this time if Sylvanas will be part of the new Night Elf questline or Gilneas reclamation.
      Here's the quiver icon.

      And here's the quiver model, courtesy of keyboardturn.

      The latest 10.2.5 PTR build adds a home for Night Elves and one of the NPCs in Bel'ameth is a Night Elf Paladin!
      While exploring the new Night Elf home in the latest 10.2.5 PTR build, MrGM stumbled upon Delas Moonfang. You might be asking, what's so special about this NPC? Here's the catch! Delas is a Night Elf Paladin. However, Delas isn't exactly new to the game. We saw her in Warlords of Draenor and Legion.
      Although Blizzard hasn't introduced any new race/class combinations in Patch 10.2, this could be a hint of things to come. Could we see new combos in future updates like Patch 10.2.7 or the War Within pre-patch?
