The Echo Clan officially claims the world’s first legendary difficulty kicks off the recently released Sanctum of Domination raid world of Warcraft.
The raid was released just a week ago, and since then the five major clans have battled for the title of the world’s first mythic clearing of the Sanctum of Domination raid. World’s First Contests are popular competitive events in many MMO titles, including world of Warcraft, fate 2 and FINAL FANTASY XIV.
The Echo Klan claimed victory yesterday (July 20), recording the world’s first kill of Red Boss Sylvanus on the hardest difficulty. The clan attempted to take down the boss over the past seven days, and came close on several occasions.
During one run, Blizzard updated the game, ruining the clan’s strategy mid-raid effort. The update stopped the clan from using a tactic where one player would inflict damage on an enemy, while the rest of the team focused on inflicting damage on boss Sylvanus.
The update, which was implemented mid-run, left the tank vulnerable because spawned enemies now had a rage time, meaning it could take down the tank immediately.
You can watch the moment the team raided in a clip below. Fair warning, it’s very loud, and contains strong language.
It is one of the many first clear ones in the world for the Echo clan, which is currently the world’s number one clan. The Echo Clan also ended the run flawlessly, meaning that none of the players died during the raid attempt.
The second team to finish the raid was Complexity Limit, the world’s first clear in the previous legendary raid, Castle Nthria. The two clans congratulated each other on Twitter yesterday (July 20) after they were approved.
Congratulations, you guys played a crazy game at this level, a well deserved win indeed!
