World First Ragnaros and Onyxia Kill on Classic by APES - Gehennas EU
It only took a week to see the first world first kill of Ragnaros and Onyxia on the new classic server, and we owe the crazy performance to on the European Gehennas server!

The original world first kill of Ragnaros was 154 days after the initial release of the raid, years of game knowledge and practice took this down to just 6 days!

    Seem to remember a buncha naysayers when I said it would die during the first reset a couple weeks ago.

    seems like I was indeed correct.

    1.12 version of MC lol. Not to mention 16 Boss debuffs vs 8. Of course it's go down fast, the raid mechanics weren't hard with today's knowledge, even more easy with 1.12

    1.12 mechanics is stupid, WoW Classic should have been Maraudon patch mechanics, not Shadow of the Necropolis mechanics.

    Half of you sound like it was you who killed Rag and Ony, but I bet 50% of you still fighting boars in the starting zone.

    When WoW first came out there really weren't to many other MMO's that had raiding or anything like that. Wow is now going onto 15 years old. The mechanics for Classic WoW raids are actually extremely simple. As the game progressed players progressed with the game as well. Each expansion brought in harder and more complicated raid mechanics. Therefore, as players grew with the game, the old mechanics from Vanilla became easier and easier. Classic WoW is the exact same basically as it was in Vanilla. The only real difference is people are much more knowledgeable when it comes to the games raid mechanics.

    and to came back to the topic : mc 1.12 is not the same that mc 1.03, multiple nerf/up and 1.12 was done for later raids with spell change etc.. and add that that raid like those knew mc after all thoses years , people who thought classic would be mega hard dont really remember, vanilla was just a long grind and boring grind, raid was unknow to everyone and everyone was a noob

    It's not, they already had all the preparation done, which shows how easy classic actually is, but you know, nostalgia is strong and can cause blindness.

    Lol someone is salty much. (or I don't get the joke )
    Yes, it's a fact, it's been clear even back in vanilla, that most of the PVE content is trivial, it's just most players are bad as hell. It's still easy to find videos of original world/server first kills and laugh at the obvious incompetence the players display. Sometimes even in Naxx.
    Saying this as someone who really enjoys replaying classic. It's a sad fact, pve is trivial.

    Why are people mad, anyone who played Vanilla expected this. 1.12 is a huge buff to classes and nerf to bosses in it's own way. The game isn't over, bosses drop 2 pieces of loot, they'll still spend the next 4months gearing everyone if they care to, and even then the average guild won't be doing this anything soon.
    These guys had a goal "Kill this and this before anyone else"
    99% of classic players just have the goal of hitting 60 and raiding in general, but these guys came to classic from a similar version of the game they've played for years while everyone else has been progressing with expansions with this specific goal so it's no surprise

    Good for them, they had a goal, they reached it, it's an accomplishment in it's own, but it's no surprise.

    You understand that by mocking him and throwing that limit comment in there, you yourself are being immature right?
