Not even 1/7, whats up with that?
Not even 1/7, whats up with that?
They're 5/7 according to their armory right now. The EU Armory parsing for WoWProgress is currently non functional, so you won't find them on there.
5/7 after a day seems a bit slow compared to Vodka, maybe they're just biding their time and farming trash or something.
Edit: Nevermind, looks like EU parsing is finally working although incredibly backlogged, obviously.

Read their blog on their website. /thread
After seeing the updates on the Paragon Facebook and Twitter I felt the need and urge to make a short blog post to all of you who seem to be worried regarding the apparently slacking progress of the guild.
As of now Paragon, your most liked and beloved group of Finns since the Leningrad Cowboys, only has downed 2 out of the 7 bosses. What does that mean? Have they caught some weird disease that came over from DreamHack? Or maybe all decided to give WoW the finger and rather enjoy the sun, drink or dive for golf balls to make some extra money?
Before you flood them with queries, mails, posts and messages, take a minute to think about how this whole world first race works: When the patch is released, all bosses are ONLY available in NORMAL mode. If a guild kills all normal mode bosses this week, they will be able to start HEROIC mode next week, after the maintenance. So this week there is no race. All big guilds will clear the normal mode bosses this week without too much stress, farm reputation and BoE epics and just relax a bit more.
The race for the Heroic World First Ragnaros kill (trademark?) starts next week. Until then, keep your feet (or hooves) still and enjoy the Firelands on your own.

paragon and ensidia are being smart , farming trash and rep
Things will get interesting next week.
As for Paragon, they went to 2/7 on 25-man, and then cleared to 5/7 on 10-man, likely with alts:
I guess if you are serious about world first kills, your time is better spent practicing heroic tactics on normal mode this week-rather than steamrolling through the content.
Heroic tactics in normal mode, thats where they are. Guilds rushing to clear it in one day are silly. Also nobody who are aiming for world firsts considers Ragnaros normal a world first. But to his and there own.
Edit: Also forgot farming trash to get the revered trinkets. I'm guessing most of the higher guilds farmed the 55 rep mobs from honoured to revered.

I think they are taking it a little slower, because not many people really give about the normal modes of raids... and seeing as no body can physically do heroic yet, there's no real point in rushing - they'll make an appearance soon enough, you'll see
Not too sure what to have a signature...
Normals mean everything. They have lost all hope.
"It's clear this is another bash Apple thread. Such things are not conducive to a good discussion."
WRONG! Those are the BEST discussions!
You do realise that isn't true right?
I don't see why anyones worrying. Guilds have CLEARED firelands in 1 day. Paragon could leave it 0/7 until tuesday and then just clear the whole dungeon if they wanted to...
In all honesty any hardcore guild that DIDN'T farm trash is just fail, especially since blizzard have now nerfed trash drop rates into the ground. Why clear normal modes in 1 day when you can farm trash for a couple of days, then clear it later on? It's not like normal mode world 1sts mean anything.
Well there's a few issues here:
1) EU realms have a 1 day disadvantage. Before EU even had the patch, numerous US guilds had cleared 7/7.
2) Armory hasn't been updating correctly. I know personally after tuesday my armory didn't update at all until friday, so none of my new gear had updated, and my measly one firelands boss kill hadn't updated either.
3) These are just normal modes. It's basically impossible to win the normals race if you're not on US, so why would you even care? The race has been won before you even get to start, so it makes a lot more sense for them to just take advantage of farming the crap outa trash, getting every single BoE obtainable for all their main raiders, and then clearing it.
You could even make an argument for PURPOSELY wiping on bosses in order to practice the crap outa all the normal mechanics so that when heroic runs around, the normal mode mechanics don't even make you think. However easy you find the normal modes, it's a complete lie if you say that none of your raiders made any mistakes on any of the bosses on your first time around.
It's pretty safe to say that as soon as heroic comes live on EU, paragon will be doing their best to catch up with all the US guilds, they usually manage anyway.
The reason why Paragon are not clearing the instance is because they practice their hardmode tactics on the normal bosses atm.The world top guild is not so foolish to just rush the instance like most US guilds ,but US have always been not so ahead in the world first race anyway.Paragon, Method and Ensidia are just another class compared to the amateur US.
I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must never let them take it from us.
