Amirdrassil RWF, Day 4: The Perfect RWF Day?

Recommended Posts


Well... Day 4 was when all the pent up boredom and monotony of the splits era exploded, and we saw some truly crazy and intense head-to-heads, the top guilds caught up and we got a brand new World First as well! It's almost everything you'd want from a RWF progress day.

We started of slow with some final splits for Echo, but by the EU evening we had both Liquid and Echo in Mythic, taking down bosses left and right. Liquid started a little earlier and took out everything that was already killed by others in 17 pulls, reaching Smolderon, the big bad for the day, and killing 6 bosses. Echo went just as fast on the first 3, but ran into some trouble on Flame Keeper Larodar, taking double the pulls Liquid did, clocking in at 14. This took around 1-2 hours out of their day, and they stayed late to get it done, so they stopped at 4/9 before calling it a night. You can check out all the videos of the big Echo and Liquid kills here.

We also saw a few other EU guilds push up, as Conspiracy and FatSharkYes got some kills, with Conspiracy actually managing to down Nymue World 3rd and end their night on 5/9! The Asian guilds also caught up top the 4/9 status quo, as Skyline, End Myth and 火锅英雄 all got on the Nymue starting line.

We then moved into the crazy part of the day, around 5 hours ago. Liquid waited the double orb bug out and came back after Blizzard fixed it to get some serious Smolderon progress done, BDG and xD got into a massive scuffle over World 4th Larodar/overall 3rd, and Skyline and End Myth were also facing off over Asia first Nymue. These three fronts provided some intense clips and wipes, like this truly painful BDG 0.04% Larodar:

While BDG were constantly in the lead and getting some serious 1-2% wipes, xD, who had come to the Larodar party much later, kept up pretty closely and with half the pulls BDG had. BDG wiped at 1%, xD wiped at 6%. And so on. In the end the win did go to BDG, but just 20 SECONDS after that... xD had their first sub-1% wipe. xD luckily managed to get their kill a little later as well, but had to suffer through another 0.8% wipe before that.

Meanwhile, Liquid were getting some serious progress done, instantly getting the fire generator lower than their 29% pre-bugfix best. Little by little they got it down below 10, 8 and then we entered heartbreak territory:

That's around when I said "this boss is dying with 1 tank alive and soloing it, isn't it?". That wasn't the only 2% pull however, and the current champions kept on pushing! At the VERY end of their raid day the kill finally came, and I just missed my prediction a LITTLE bit, as it was actually TWO tanks that carried out the kill on their own in the end! It took 56 pulls to take down Smolderon, and he truly was a worthy RWF boss in the end. Without that 13% HP buff Blizzard ninja added when Instant Dollars first got to him... not so much, as he would have died at least 3 hours sooner.

The full pull VoD:


In closing, day 4 is everything I want the RWF to be from the start. And honestly, if we have to suffer through 3 days of mind-numbing splits to get here... that's ok too.

      Reddit user Bonelord911 tried to organize all specializations by their alignment to the cosmology chart and here's the result!
      There's just one slight inconsistency as ItisCaleb and Evonyte pointed out. Monks should be at Spirit, close to reality, since the Chi is a Spirit element according to the Chronicles.

      The individual items that comprise the Dark Ranger General's transmog set have been added in the latest Patch 10.2.5 build. The armor set allows players to resemble Sylvanas Windrunner.
      Hunters will probably be happy with the addition of the Dark Ranger General's armor set! Here's a preview of the set. At this time, the source of the ensemble remains unknown. It is possibly tied to the Gilnean Reclamation or Trading Post, we'll see.

      Blizzard added a new Night Elf child model in this week's Patch 10.2.5 build.
      The model is used NPCs that have moved to Bel'ameth and Belanaar harbor, as indicated in the latest development notes.
      Many Night Elves are now starting to arrive in Bel’ameth and Belanaar harbor to settle in their new homes. In addition to these new hubs, explore other areas across the island to find new night elf cosmetic treasures. Here's a detailed look at the new model. The model looks a bit creepy and the feet are somewhat low texture. Hopefully this will get fixed in a future build.

      For more details about the new Night Elf home, check the detailed zone preview by MrGM. Did you know Bel'ameth is a neutral city? Even Horde players can enter!

      This week's Patch 10.2.5 build brought an updated map of Amirdrassil. 
      We're talking about the non-phased Amirdrassil zone available to everyone in the latest update. For comparison, here's the old map from the previous PTR build.

      And here's the updated map from this week's Patch 10.2.5 build. Bel'ameth has been marked on the map along with other areas like Belanaar port.

      Amirdrassil has also been added to the world map in the previous PTR build.

      The new Night Elf home Bel'aneth added in Patch 10.2.5 is a neutral city. However, Horde players who enter the city will see a debuff informing them that they are being watched.
      The debuff's name is Eyes of the Sentinels and the tooltip reads: Seen and unseen eyes alike are watching your every move.
