Warlords Of Draenor's First Raid Is Live, 7 Guilds Already Cleared It

Warlords of Draenor's First Raid Is Live, 7 Guilds Already Cleared It

Although Warlords of Draenor has been out for a while, players had to wait till yesterday for Highmaul, the expansion's first raid, to go live. Seven top guilds, with the veteran Finnish super guild Paragon leading the list, already rushed through it without any trouble.

We can say Highmaul is a relatively large raid with its seven bosses (with two of them being optional, and some of them with some really funky mechanics, such as the Twin Ogrons in Method's video below). Not as big as Ulduar, Naxxramas or Icecrown back in the old days, but you can have fun with 7 bosses for weeks.

According to WoWProgress, this is how things look at the moment. You can see the guild names, their faction (red = horde, blue = alliance) and their progress on the bosses. If you've followed WoW raids in the past you can find some familiar guilds there. But not everyone. Where is Blood Legion? Or Method? Those guys are always on top.

They all did it on Heroic difficulty. It's the currently hardest one, but Mythic will be even harder when it opens next week. We have to wait a few more days for that, and probably that's when all the missing top guilds will show up.


    I look forward to completing this raid in 6 years time. :)

      Don't know if you have played in a while but lfr and flex ( now normal ) difficulty make it accessible to everyone

        I totally forgot about LFR. I meant more in the fact that I have just being soloing the raids BC now. I've only just come back since leaving just before BC launched. so there is so much stuff to explore

          Ah k, well after LFR has been out for a bit and people know the fights relatively/get some gear, people will start pugging normal (which is the old flex).

    All I've got to say is pay attention to the mechanics and it's not to bad, ignore them and fail continuously.

    It is an entry level raid, so extreme complexity isn't to be expected (not that it gets much harder further on)

    We cleared up to Twin Ogron last night and it was a blast. I'm thoroughly looking forward to the remaining tiers of this expansion. As someone stuck on flamethrower duty on Spore, I thought the mechanic was immensely fun. Pop burning rush, sac pet bubble and flame up all the mossy badness!

    Anyway, good raid :) Keen for foundry!

    Didn't blood legion fall apart recently? or am i just imagining things?

    We tried on Wednesday, but the issues with the Oceanic servers meant we only got Kargath down. Trying again tonight.
