Castle Nathria Raid Testing Schedule - August 28th - August 31st
Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)

Friday, August 28th

Revendreth’s Last Dance - LFR Castle Nathria
14:00 PDT (17:00 EDT, 23:00 CEST)

As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.

To facilitate testing, players who have not committed themselves to a Covenant can speak with Acquirer Ta’est inside Castle Nathria to temporarily bind themselves to one of the four factions.

Q: How do I get into the raid zone?

A: In Oribos, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade IV in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)

Q: What character should I use to test the raid?

A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players’ effective level to 60 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.

Q: How long does testing last?

A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we’re satisfied that we’ve received that information for a given boss, we’ll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

We appreciate you taking the time to test our content and look forward to reading your feedback.

Rextroy Soloes Maut Through Berserk
Rextroy, the paladin known for soloing bosses and breaking the game, has went above and beyond and managed to defeat Maut through berserk and a soft enrage at the same time!

To survive all that damage, Rextroy used damage reductions:

To reach 160% versatility Rextroy had to use versatility gems and enchants, Vantus Rune, Versatility Amplifiers, Ancients' Bulwark Azerite Trait, Conflict and Strife as Major Essence and Aegis of the Deep as Minor Essence. As for the encounter itself and how he handled mechanics, check out his video with commentary!
