    Same difficulty as Putricide ~ only difference was really that most of the mechanics of the fight were established before it was released.

    congratulations on the kill you guys
    Better to keep your mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.

    Can anybody tell me the name of the addon on the bottom left corner of this video ? The one with the in-combat timer and the buttons that look like logging information or some type of data export.

    Thanks

    If the boss is down the first day it is released its not worthy of a world first post, simply because it tells you nothing about them being the best if its truly that easy. Bosses that take days for anyone to down are normally downed by a highly skilled guild, and that is what makes it worthy of a post (and significantly more worthy if it takes weeks, such as HM Yogg, HM Anub, or Muru or something later in SWP).

    Not to take anything away from killing him, but anyone who does 25 man clears (which is plenty of guilds) should be able to do this today NP

    Re: World 1st Blood-Queen Lana'thel, Adept - Dreadmaul

    I don't get the point of worlds first boss kills considering different servers are opened at different times, some have extended downtimes , some guilds practice on the PTR for days before the release of the boss and the update usally finishes on tuesday or wensday morning when alot of people are at work or school and then theres the point that the USA servers open up like 24 hours before the EU ones.

    all these varirables affect the world first title too much to be worthwhile.

    For example A level students, GCSE students and uni students are taking exams this week and the past week meaning they cant miss an exam or a last class/ lecture just to kill a boss so that there guild gets world first.

    the term world first is offensive to EU players because it is basically saying they have lost at somthing which they had no oppotunity to win, first usa kill is less offensive and wouldnt provoke as much hatred from eu players that would probally have killed the boss quicker if the servers all went up at the same time anyway.

    Some guild also practice on the PTR for hours per day, i would be much more impressed if a guild that hadnt been on the ptr managed to kill the boss in the first week rather than a guild that has been practicing alot just to basically play a repeat performance on the launch day.

    Its similar to someone having 100 driving lessons and bragging about passing the test on the first time to someone having no driving lessons and passing on the 3rd time.

    As I see it, all of this arguing boils down to how many other guilds clear it this week. If every guild around also clears it within a couple hours, well yeah I guess it wasn't that impressive after all. If relatively few guilds clear it over the next few days, then this was arguably an impressive first. Either way, I was happy to be informed that someone did it so soon, so thanks for the post and grats Adept!

    Blizzard has stated that they intended for the final bosses of each wing to be especially challenging, so to say that this guild has not accomplished something that is especially challenging is to say that Blizzard has failed at their goal for the encounter. So let's be careful who we blame.

    When I looked around to find strats and see videos for this based on PTR fights, like at www.stratfu.com, I only saw vids of solid raiding guilds wiping - so I had the impression that it was not an easy fight. I'll definitely be watching www.guildox.com for the next couple days. Who knows, maybe (gasp) it actually is a hard fight!

    Firstly, yes I am acting immature in this topic I apologize.
    However I must point out a few things.
    They might be attention seeking, HOWEVER, Putricide world first was put on the front page due to him being an end wing boss, this guild did not do it for blood princes, they announced the world first about a END WING BOSS, which blizz themselfs stated to be challenging, therefore i see it as appropiate posting of world first and not so much attention seeking.

    You said i got "use better we killed faster", firstly i am not from USA and secondly, find a post where i said they were better and EU was shit or anything of the like? all i did was make fun of your post and say gz to the guild for the world first kill.

    And Thirdly, if thats the case, People should be offended also if TW does not get a kill, cause dont they get it like 3 weeks after EU does? and was it not a guild from TW that got world first alone in the darkness? They should be included also, yet they are dismissed and by your logic all world first by EU that was done Before TW gets it, also is offensive and unfair.

    It use to matter because it use to take at least days if not weeks to months for some to get world first, now (as is the rest of the game) its a joke but people still feel the need to boast about it.

    Maybe that was so in the past. However, Icecrown gating, being it's the first instance that's truly been gated in Wrath that actually has some decent difficulty normal modes (you can't say ToC was ever difficult on normal, and that was unlocked one boss at a time).

    In TBC, bosses were permanent hardmode, and didn't come with +drakes or +keepers style modes. You didn't do Kael with 1/2/3 sidekicks. You didn't do Veras Darkshadow with 1/2/3 of the other council members present as a hard mode. You just did it as that was how the encounters went. Additionally, while it's a good addition, the problems that adding 10-mans brought with regards to "outside the game itself" mean it's very difficult to get a good grasp on how good a guild is these days. In TBC, you had a clear ladder of who was at the top and who wasn't. Now, it's either being ranked #1-10 in the world, or being blurred in the lines that adding 10-mans caused. This led to a 2nd problem where you've got exceptional players, who are stuck in guilds where the others just can't get their act together. There's no guilds outside "good" and "bad", there's no "we're average" guilds, and you either need the achievements, gear and experience to be able to get into the good guilds, or you're stuck with being in a bad guild, regardless of how good you actually are as a player. This is what it's come down to, and it's the reason everyone and their mother is spamming up the forums with World First kills that aren't actually fair due to the maintenance time differences.

    I also don't know when Asia's maintenance is, but yes, the point remains and is still valid, and until they get it, world first kills can't be classed as fair, whatever part of the world they're from. I suppose you're gonna come back and say "well since China doesn't even have wrath..." to which i say, piss off. Tell you what, Mars doesn't even have WoW yet, shall we phone the aliens and boast about getting a kill in something they don't even have access to? Because that's basically what posting "OMG WORLD FIRST" before content is available to everyone feels like.

    On topic, nice kill to the OP, i don't mean to make it look like you're a bad guild because it's apparent you're not, it just frustrates me to see people posting "World First" on things that no one outside the US realms has access to. I guess that's Blizzard's fault though.

    Isn't Adept an Aussie guild? All the USA vs EU stuff in this thread is kind of funny if so. ;D

    Re: World 1st Blood-Queen Lana'thel, Adept - Dreadmaul

    Only people who take the game too seriously have a problem with others getting e-points before them.

    Furthermore, if you do take it so seriously that you whine and cry about it on these forums, perhaps you should take a break from the game and try some things outside and get some world firsts for yourself.

    There is no secret that Aussies are better than EU and US.

    Connection Issues, constant 300 ping and a smaller player base yet were never too far behind on cutting edge content.

I was sleeping when they did this, I'm not going to be a jerk and say "This wasn't a real world first because I was sleeping so couldn't do it".

    Congrats again.
    They are on an Oceanic server. Oceanic servers are mostly Australian players or South East Asian players/Perth players with +8GMT, meaning that their server comes up when it is 3am/6am their time. So, yes, they had to have told all their raiders to skip school/work to do this and wake up early, which is a bit extreme just to be able to post on MMO and stroke their epeen.

We held off on Putricide because we believed the encounter to be bugged, and we didn't want to waste attempts. This time we didn't need to do that - and got the first kill.

    As people have said, Heroic mode(s) will be the real test. In the meantime I'm going to enjoy the #1 ranking (until wowprogress changes their system yet again...)


    *I say 'we' advisedly - I didn't get up early with the other guys, because I had to go to work. Boss was dead before I would've had to leave though, so I wish I had!

    I'm happy to see an aussie guild get world first, maybe you all want to spark a EU vs US war. if a EU guild downs lanathel in approx 1and a half hours after server comes up they can claim world first otherwise zip the lip and look forward to your own attempts
