    How do you know its a World First? Thats the problem with these kinds of threads and why they get the flaming they deserve. You should title your thread "World First person to do Algalon 4 man and thinks its worth posting". Because it isn't any type of first or progression leap that is actually monitored or matters, there is no way to verify that you were even first. This could have been done by 4 people a month or two months ago, but never posted anywhere. I'm not saying it isn't interesting, so better yet just post it under the title "How to 4 man Algalon" under raids or or something, but it doesn't belong in a world first forum, and will justly be flamed for appearing there.

    I don't think you get it, nor do others who flame this 4man... in order to get that kill they had 2 dps pulling 10k each, they had their tank and the healer. The normal way to do the fight requires 2 tanks, so to 4 man the fight with 2 tanks, you'd only have 1 dps and 1 healer. With that setup, it is highly unlikely that the enrage timer would be met. So to do the fight with 2 tanks and make the enrage timer, you would need 2 dps and the healer making it a 5man kill. The fact that they pulled it off with 1 tank is fairly amazing, and definitely shows skill on their part.

    With that being said, it is fairly unlikely that anyone has attempted to kill him with 4 people before, if they had, there would more than likely be vids or ss's about it since it is quite a feat.

    And with that said, grats on your 4man kill, very impressive.

    Not a great achi, but the fact that it was a realm/world first is pretty cool (:

    Grats on the kill.. very nicely done and good use of threat mechanics etc.

    Personally I ignore trolls on here, just be proud of your achievement. As for the OP headline, Yeah you can't prove its the first 4 man kill, but if someone else had pulled it off they would have posted already or something to that effect and if they did, the trolls would have got them too!

    Well done again

    This thread just shows that internetters will give anyone a hard time about anything!
    Grats on the impressive kill- It sounds like it was a lot of fun.

    We're working on a 3 man Sarth 3D 10, which is incredibly difficult so far, and a 4 man 25 Malygos!

    Wow nice gg,but if your trying to hide your friends people can just go and take the pop-up you put their,so either you mess up the video your self or people can see your friends.

    Actually it is those "World first Kill by micronesian guild" or "World first kill while hopping on one leg". Especially "Wold first with less members but old content" are also usually dicey...I mean..who would care about anyone soloing MC nowadays?

    So, in short: the internet.

    Pretty sure they deserve all the props anyways. Would love to see a video of you doing it. inb4 troll

    Grats on the kill. Nice video too. Algalon is still my favorite boss in WOTLK.

    Because four manning, 3 manning, 2 or even soloing some old boss is worthy of being called a world first? Oh right - outgearing content means you're good, I forgot.
