WoW WotLK Classic: All 3 raids are completed only 1 hour after release

Absolutely crazy! Just over an hour after the new WotLK raids opened their doors in WoW Classic, the first guilds have already sawn them all. His secret weapon: the death knights.

Who got the first kills? Exactly one hour, 4 minutes and 19 seconds after the opening of Naxxramas, the Obsidian Sanctum and the Eye of Eternity, the BEEF BAR European Horde guild of the Gehenna server has placed all 3 raids. They were only seconds faster than the competition:

  • Progress (Alliance, Firemaw EU) – 1h 5min 56s
  • Statement (Horde, Venoxis EU) – 1h 11min 23s
  • Noobs (Horde, 震 地 者 China) – 1h 14min 33s

The raids began at 12:00 sharp and just over an hour later the Race to World First was over for all three instances. Statement, here in 3rd place, is the best German guild by the way. For comparison:

Death Knight as the key to victory

How did they do it? All the best guilds rely on the Death Knights, the new class of WotLK. Cymbal holders are currently among the strongest DPS classes. While some guilds used a mix of Frost and Unholy Death Knights, BEEF BAR used 10 Unholy Death Knights.

According to wowhead’s calculations, their special ability to summon a gargoyle alone was responsible for over 19 million points of damage. To do this, the guilds used some game mechanics:

  • World fans like Sayge Dark Fate of Darkmoon Faire and Awakening of the Soul damage
  • Bootsweaving and Gloveweaving

A first trailer of WotLK Classic introduces the new Death Knight class:

The mechanics of “weaving” represents an exploitation of the engineering art. With the profession you can give gloves and boots special abilities. Players have brought multiple pairs of these to be able to chain skills.

In addition, of course, there is a large portion of experience. Wrath of the Lich King is 14 years old, and many players have been practicing on private servers for years or cultivating instances on their own. As a result, no one had to relearn the strategies.

For raids, guilds had to get their players up to level 80, but that too happened just hours after WotLK’s release. Where the “normal” player needs several weeks, the experts execute the game in the shortest time possible.

The community is bothered by the elite thoughts of many players in WoW Classic and demands that WotLK be enjoyed in peace. The performance of the corporations is still remarkable.

More raids and dungeons in the future

What’s next? After the opening of Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum and Eye of Eternity, further stages of the content follow:

  • Ulduar
  • Trial of the Crusader and Onyxia’s Lair and the Argent Tournament.
  • Icecrown Citadel and other heroic dungeons
  • Sanctum Ruby

However, we still don’t know exactly when these stages will appear. There is still no concrete data.

If you missed the big release, that’s no problem. As you can see, there is still a lot of new content coming up and those who want to sign up later also have some perks:
