Amirdrassil RWF Day 10: A Detailed Look at Fyrakk, and a Lot of Progress

Recommended Posts

We've reached the final face-off of the race, as both Liquid and Echo are on Fyrakk and progressing side-by-side! They day didn't see that much movement percentage-wise, but a whole lot of it fight mechanics-wise.

Echo managed to catch up during the day and when Liquid came back the two guilds were truly neck-and-neck on the attempts. Liquid did have a bit of an edge, considering their 45 or so off-stream pulls during the previous night, as they did take the lead. Echo ended their day on a 62.66% best, just pushing through past the dragon orb bonanza intermission into add-healing phase 2.

Let's start off slow with the entire fight of that Echo best pull. Also, if you want to get a deeper understanding of what the hell is happening in there, you can check out this post by our own Rogue guide writer, Seliathan.

Liquid were also hovering around that 62% mark and soon had a new best of their own, a 58.84% which would stay the lowest the boss got until the VERY last pull of the day. We're taking a look starting from the phase 1 into 2 intermission.

The fight also has some peculiarities, like the flame patches actually bouncing forward if you don't get the overlap right:

And then there's this little detail: the players went back to get an old Battle for Azeroth engineering belt enchant, the Belt Enchant: Personal Space Amplifier Personal Space Amplifier. They use it to corral the small soul adds towards the big infernals in phase 2 so they can AoE them all down, and out of the way of the small heraler adds so they don't transform them into more souls.

That's around when Echo went to bed. A little before that we also saw the Tindral World 3rd by Method, who also got a few pulls in on Fyrakk and called it a day as well. That left only Liquid to progress on the boss for the entire night, and while there was solid progress and plentiful phase 2 visits, it took until Max literally called the last pull of the night for our next BIG look deeper into P2. This time we're starting right at the P2 beginning.

That's a LOT of new information, with the second wave of infernals, the three big healer tree adds and a new best (although by 0.18%). Here's another look at the pull replay, with commentary from Liquid's main stream casters:

The wipes in phase 2 vary from the infernals not going down fast enough and getting their 100 energy cast off, or the healer adds dying and transforming into enemies, even Amirdrassil itself running out of HP as not enough healers go through. Also, here's a raid composition comparison between the three Fyrakk-progressing guilds:

And, just as a treat at the end with so much fight footage, here's what happens when the days get long and the pulls intense.

 

A very big day indeed as Fyrakk was looking pretty impenetrable almost right up until that final pull of the day. He still may be, but there's room to go. Echo are going there right now as they started their day already, so we'll see how far they get, and if they can see Phase 3 before Liquid wake up.

      Heirlooms in the War Within pre-patch will become soulbound if you enchant/equip them. A fix for the issue is coming when the expansion releases in Patch 11.0.2.
      (Source)
      Thanks for your feedback on Heirlooms! We originally planned to convert heirlooms to be Warbound until equipped to keep gear consistently using the new bind type. Upon further consideration, we’d like to continue to support the playstyle of setting up heirlooms with enchants and gems, then passing them to alts as needed. Given the 11.0.0 patch is today, we can’t easily fix this in the current patch, but it will be changed back in the upcoming 11.0.2 patch.
      While unfortunately your gear will become bound if you enchant/equip until the next patch, once it comes out, your heirloom gear will revert to Warbound, allowing you to again pass it between alts after equipping / enchanting it. We apologize for the temporary inconvenience and again, thank you so much for the feedback.

      Blizzard has posted an update on Mythic+ affix changes coming in this week's Beta build.
      A new Xal'atath's Bargain affix called Oblivion was added. It revolves around void crystals that can be absorbed by enemies or players. When players absorb them, they'll gain increased Mastery and Leech. Many affixes have been adjusted based on community feedback. (Source)
      Greetings, dungeoneers!
      Thank you all for your feedback on our new Mythic+ affix system. As we continue to review community responses for future adjustments, we’ve made updates in this week’s Beta.
      New Affix
      Continuing with the theme of Xal’atath’s Bargain, where players can harness powerful boons granted to dungeon enemies by the Harbinger, we’re adding a new affix to our Beta testing this week. Xal’atath’s Bargain: Oblivion
      While in combat, Xal’atath manifests crystals from the void that can be absorbed by enemies or players. These crystals spawn near enemies and move towards them until they are absorbed by players or collide with their target enemy. Players that absorb these void crystals gain increased Mastery and Leech. Affix Adjustments
      Voidbound is receiving adjustments to ease positioning requirements, and increase the value of defeating it to offset its damage requirement. Xal’atath’s Bargain: Voidbound
      Void Emissary now follows the Tank player after being summoned. Void Emissary’s health adjusted, and its health no longer scales with Fortified. Dark Prayer now grants 5% damage to all enemies in combat every 2 seconds, adjusted from 10% damage to all enemies in combat every 3 seconds. Dark Prayer now persists on enemy creatures if the channel finishes without the Void Emissary being defeated. Blessing from Beyond now grants 20% Cooldown Reduction in addition to 20% Critical Strike chance. We’ll see you in dungeons!

      Blizzard has posted an official preview of the updated character screens and services in the War Within pre-patch.
      (Source)

      With the release of the pre-expansion content update and Warbands, you’ll notice a difference in the character screen that will affect how you use  Character Transfers, Level Boosts, Race Changes, and Faction Changes on your characters.
      As the character selection screen shows all characters on the Battle.net account in one convenient location, some may show up as “gray” in the listing and are not available to select to use a Character Service on. To use a service for that character, you will need to select the realm that the character is from first by clicking on the “Realm” selection at the top of the screen and then apply the service to that character.
      You can also hover your mouse cursor over a character listed on the right side of the screen to see additional information including the realm it is currently on.
