    Armory Stats - Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry
    Today we are taking a look at the Highmaul and Blackrock Foundry achievement completion rate of players. The data used today is a sample of 6.1 million characters from 3.1 million accounts. We also did this for Siege of Orgrimmar during of Mists of Pandaria, which you can see here.

    yeah or basketball where they pass the ball around for 20 seconds. (holinka)

    It does have a timer, 15 min, which I personally think is way too short, I'd like longer games.
    20 in RBGs though. (holinka)
    it's also 15 in wargame tournament rules unfortunately. Slightly skews rbg tournaments
    Sounds like a bug. (holinka)

    Misc
    Besides WoW PvP do you watch any other E-Sports?
    I have enjoyed watching Smash, League, Counter-Strike and Heroes. Only scene I follow besides WoW is Heroes. (holinka)

    Heroes of the Storm - Tomb of the Spider Queen
    Blizzard released an overview video of the Tomb of the Spider queen map added in the latest patch.



    Rift - Wardrobe Update
    Rift is also getting a Wardrobe feature in Patch 3.2.

    • When any armor or weapon is added to your inventory, its appearance is automatically unlocked for you across your entire account.
    • You can create and save wardrobe sets to allow easy switching of your appearance.
    • You can use dyes to color the armor in any slot.
    • A future patch will also add Wardrobe sets you can collect, with the UI showing your progress towards collecting the full set.

    Thats a pretty neat Rift update. I havent played in years but it was the only MMO to catch my attention outside WoW.

    The wardrobe feature is neat - It's been used in GW2 for a while now.

    First only 1.8% with best ring (wtf?!) and now 1-2% that did any mythic BRF

    I'm sure we'll get that in WoW too. In about 2-5 years.

    That means that it is only a sample.

    Those statistics are pretty bad imo, Wowprogress can give you a better view on raiding stats.

    How big is the sample? Where do they get their stats.

  13. #13
    Is the sample restricted to lvl 100 characters?

    Wowprogress statistics only include players who raid current tier content in a guild and aren't representative of the whole userbase. This sample includes all kinds of players, including PvP players, RPs and casuals who haven't stepped into any current tier raid.

    The sample is 3.1 million accounts as you have noted earlier.

    Looks like Mythic 20 is a total failure from a design standpoint. Darmac is the most downed boss at 1.4% of the playerbase. Basically very few players are even caring about Mythic these days, making it an utter waste of time from a design standpoint. Time for them to cut their losses and go back to what worked before, but with less difficulty options to prevent burnout.

    please blizzard bring this xpac fast as you can to an end!

    its better for us all!

    for the game, for the players and for you!

    Or it's a success because that's exactly what Mythic is for and the reason why we have 4 difficulties. And also, way over 10% of raiding guilds have killed bosses in BRF Mythic.
