wow Warlords Raid Progression

For the first portion of the 17th tier of raid instances, Blizzard released Highmaul on December 2 and 9 on the flexible Normal/Heroic and 20-man Mythic difficulties, respectively. A shorter raid, clocking in at only seven encounters (separated by limited trash, at that), Highmaul has been enjoyed by a substantial number of players already in its first few weeks despite the holiday season.

 

Worldwide, the first Mythic Imperator Mar'gok kill went to Paragon, who managed the feat in the first week that Mythic Highmaul was available. US first went to the Oceanic guild Ascension the following week, edging out Blood Legion and Icy Veins partner guild Midwinter (who finished 4th in the US and 20th worldwide).

 

Paragon put together an excellent video of their Mythic Imperator Mar'gok kill:

 

 

As an instance, Highmaul has broadly been very positive. The encounters showcase an interesting blend of mechanics, and are distinct and varied in their overall difficulty. Certain aspects of the raid, such as the need to manually assign responsibility for a mechanic on almost every fight, have pros and cons - they allow guilds to choose who will be handling personal responsibility mechanics, such as triggering The Butcher's Cleave or who uses flamethrowers on Brackenspore - but add an administrative element to these fights that introduces additional complexity (as evidenced by overall progression - see below).

 

Wondering where you stand? Of guilds that have done raiding content so far in Warlords of Draenor at the time of writing:

 

- Only 38.5% of guilds have downed a boss other than Kargath Bladefist on Heroic.

- Just 15.26% of guilds have killed Imperator Mar'gok on Heroic for the achievement_boss_highmaul_king.jpgAhead of the Curve: Imperator's Fall achievement.

- Only 5.36% of guilds have a Mythic kill other than Kargath, and less than 1,000 total guilds have gone further than Mythic Twin Ogron - with a scant 70 having killed Imperator on Mythic.

What progress has your guild made? Close to any big kills?

My guild is part of the 60% or so who hasn't done past Kargath on heroic. 

 

The flexibility of Normal/Heroic difficulty and the Christmas season have made it hard for us to get our main raiders in consistently for Heroic, so we've been doing Normals to help gear people up.

      A guide that focuses on gold gain "on the go", no tedious tasks required.
      Highlights
      All materials sell fast No need to check out crafting value vs. profit You make gold "on the way" engaging in a wide variety of activities that don't focus on gold making, such as World Quests or Glory of the Legion Hero. Blood of Sargeras
      Get Boon of the Bloodhunter. It gives a lot of extra bloods. You will notice Bloodhunter's Quarry dropping from enemies. It will contain anywhere from 1-5 Bloods of Sargeras. Engage in content that gives you a lot of bloods, the best are Mythic+0 dungeons. After having acquired enough bloods at the end of the day, visit this website to determine the most recent gold value of Blood of Sargeras. On most servers, you will get the maximum value from Potion of Prolonged Power, but we'll be focusing on raw materials. Find Illnea Bloodthorn in Dalaran. If you found which item has the most value, create a macro depending on the item you'd like to buy: /run BuyMerchantItem(1) - Order Resources Cache /run BuyMerchantItem(2) - Lean Shank /run BuyMerchantItem(3) - Fatty Bearsteak /run BuyMerchantItem(4) - Big Gamy Ribs /run BuyMerchantItem(5) - Leyblood /run BuyMerchantItem(6) - Wildfowl Egg /run BuyMerchantItem(7) - Cursed Queenfish /run BuyMerchantItem(8) - Mossgill Perch /run BuyMerchantItem(9) - Highmountain Salmon /run BuyMerchantItem(10) - Stormray /run BuyMerchantItem(11) - Runescale Koi /run BuyMerchantItem(12) - Black Barracuda /run BuyMerchantItem(13) - Aethril /run BuyMerchantItem(14) - Dreamleaf /run BuyMerchantItem(15) - Foxflower /run BuyMerchantItem(16) - Fjarnskaggl /run BuyMerchantItem(17) - Starlight Rose /run BuyMerchantItem(18) - Leystone Ore /run BuyMerchantItem(19) - Felslate /run BuyMerchantItem(20) - Stonehide Leather /run BuyMerchantItem(21) - Stormscale /run BuyMerchantItem(22) - Unbroken Claw /run BuyMerchantItem(23) - Unbroken Tooth /run BuyMerchantItem(24) - Shal'dorei Silk /run BuyMerchantItem(25) - Arkhana /run BuyMerchantItem(26) - Leylight Shard Example: I found that I will get the most value from Fjarnskaggl, So I create this macro:
      /run BuyMerchantItem(16) You can adjust the amount of stacks you want to buy, but the best is to just spam the macro until you're out of bloods if you want to deplete them all.
      Enchanting
      Greatly synergizes with blood farming. You get a lot of gold by disenchanting everything. Don't disenchant BoE purples! Chaos Crystal is the main source of income and disenchanting epic gear has a chance to yield a Blood of Sargeras. The key is to obtain as much gear as possible from World Quests (look for quests that award purple items when doing your daily cache), Mythic+0 dungeons, LFR  and other sources. If you're doing Heroic dungeons, disenchant every rare item to get Leylight Shard. Disenchant all green gear you come across into Arkhana. Sell all crystals, shards and dust. Order Hall Missions
      To further improve your gold gain, don't forget about missions that award gold! If you're success chance is 200%, you're guaranteed to receive bonus gold. Don't forget to put everything in the Auction House.
      Closing Tips
      Mobile Armory is far more comfortable to use than the in-game Auction House. Legion Companion App can be used for Order Hall Missions. Sell all Defiled Augment Runes you get from LFR, Order Hall Missions.

      Build 23623 added five mounts that will be available from Reputation Paragon. For every 20,000 reputation gained beyond Exalted with Legion factions, you'll receive a new emissary cache that has a chance to contain one of the mounts.
      Mounts are tied to specific zone caches. No indications if they are a 100% drop though.
      Collecting 10 caches awards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement. You can obtain the following mounts (sorted as they appear in the video).
      Highmountain Elderhorn Wild Dreamrunner Cloudwing Hippogryph Valarjar Stormwing Leywoven Flying Carpet Highmountain Elderhorn and Wild Dreamrunner are probably only ground mounts.
      Which of the mounts do you like most?

      Mages are getting a flying disc (Archmage's Prismatic Disc) as their class mount in Patch 7.2. After talking to Archmage Kalec, you accept the quest Dispersion of the Discs and the objective is to complete a Ritual in the Eye of Eternity.
      These discs are radiating with power! It must be their proximity to one another. We must take them from here should they resonate further and cause a catastrophe in these sacred halls.

      I'll send them to the one place I know where we can reign their energies in, preventing any sort of explosion. I'm speaking of the Eye of Eternity.

      There we will be able to safely finish what Antonidas was unable to complete. Speak with me again when you're ready to leave.

      22 guilds have finished the raid and cleared all 10 bosses on Mythic difficulty, there's been some more quitting and a lot more videos.
       
      Back once again for the final update in the tier 19 and Nighthold progress race, and a lot has happened since the top 5. 22 guilds have finished the raid and cleared all 10 bosses on Mythic difficulty, there's been some more quitting and a lot more videos.
      Here's the top 20, courtesy of Method.gg, which includes Chinese guilds in the rankings, as Wowprogress can't track their armory. Set sail for fail also have a problem with their armory tracking so they don't appear on Wowprog's page either, in case you were wondering.

      It's very interesting to see the Asia guilds clustered up in spots 10 to 14, since they get the reset two days after the US and one day after EU. This particular progress was a little strange for the Chinese guilds, however, as they usually come out ahead of the Korean guilds, but this time around their Lunar New Year came down right at the very beginning of progress and so almost all their top guilds took some time off. The 21st to cross that final threshold was another Chinese guild, KeaHoarl, and the most recent Gul'dan killer was Fusion, who were previously banned for a week after exploiting Star Augur.
      Some more bad news struck as well, with Danish Terrace joining From Scratch and Midwinter in not participating in progress:
      And here are some more Gul'dan videos: the US first/World 5th by Limit and Asia first/World 10th by AFK R. If you missed the top 3 videos, you can check them out here.
       

      That's it for our Nighthold and tier 19 coverage, we hope you enjoyed these updates and their format/frequency. Do let us know if there's something you'd like changed and improved, and we'll see you in tier 20 and Tomb of Sargeras!

      Farseer's Raging Tempest is Shaman's Class Mount in 7.2. You're sent to the Throne of Four Winds to assist Thunderaan in the new Gathering of the Storms Scenario. 
      Gathering of the Storms
      Thunderaan has asked me to send you to the Throne of the Four Winds to assist him with a situation.

      Speak with me again when you're ready to leave, Farseer. The quest is quite short. Three color tints are available for the mount and in the recent build Elemental / Enhancement tints were swapped. Elementals have the fiery appearance now and Enhancement Shamans get the airy mount. The Restoration spec's appearance should be more watery, but what's weird is that it has more thunders than the Enhancement spec for now.
      Shamans get one of the coolest class mounts, because the vast majority uses existing animations of past mounts.
