Paragon World First Lich King HC Kill Video
Paragon finally released their video of the world first kill of the Lich King in 25-Man Heroic mode. Also, For The Horde (EU-Nazjatar) claimed the world 2nd kill of the encounter a few minutes ago! Congratulations to them!
These are the tactics that Paragon used on their first Lich King kill 26.3.2010. That week we had the 5% increased healing/health/damage buff active. Patch 3.3.3 had come out on previous Wednesday. The patch provided dps buffs to some classes (like frost death knight and moonkin) as well as it buffed priest shields and gave the 5% damage bonus to pets.
Basic stats on the encounter:
- Lich King: 103,9M hitpoints (dies at 10%)
- Valkyr Shadowguards: 3M hitpoints
- Raging Spirits: 4,1M hitpoints
- Vile Spirits: (blew these up)
The fight has 3 different phases and 2 transition phases + Frostmourne room in the last phase.
Obtained [Arcanite Fishing Pole].
Earned the achievement Master Angler of Azeroth for 20 points.
Cataclysm Class Preview Compilation
The past week has been crazy and I just couldn't report everything on the front page as soon as it was released. However, I don't really like the idea of not reporting information and I went back through all the blue posts from last week to compile all the information released for each class. Blue posters did an amazing job this week and gave tons of details on the changes, you will probably see a lot of new stuff there depending on your class. They are located in their respective forum to make the discussion easier.
If you're wondering how crazy it's been, we had an average of 10 000 forum posts each day for the past week. That's a forum post every 8 second, and that's more posts in a single day than during the first 6 months of the website. (And I'd like to take this opportunity to publicly hug the moderators for everything they did this week)
