World Of Warcraft Highmaul Raid Has Been Completed, Who Got The World First?

World of Warcraft: Warlords of Draenor's first raid Highmaul has been defeated. Less than two weeks after the raid was released, one guild has managed to clear all seven bosses on Mythic difficulty.

Finnish guild Paragon finished off Mythic Highmaul late Saturday night by killing final boss Imperator Mar'gok. They managed to edge out over a dozen other guilds who have currently killed six of the bosses. Here are the current standings as of tonight (via Wowprogress):

"Thanks to the people who helped us gear in 30man heroics: Aishera, Arx, Baltha, Carwe, Cipaku, Courtinia, Daewyn, Dhoryd, Djenga, Ely, Faelia, Lockyon, Lounas, Lutkukka, Manni, Mursu, Nacosta, Nikzy, Paradar, Pasi, Pelzz, Pulshu, Rihma, Roope, Scyler, Sterkku, Tasydan, Tombolo, Turhis, Utiz, Wyviku, xenophics, Zaeg, Zelys, Zohtaren. And a special thanks to the best farmer eu: Wantmilk," the guild said on their website.

They also revealed how often they wiped on each boss. From the tally, it looks like the difficulty in Highmaul is a bit uneven. Some bosses caused them no trouble while a couple others accounted for most of their wipes:

  • Kargath Bladefist: 0
  • Twin Ogron: 0
  • Brackenspore: 13
  • Tectus: 18
  • Ko'ragh: 38
  • Imperator Mar’gok: 122
  • The Butcher: 121

The name Paragon should be very familiar to WoW players. They've regularly been among the top guilds in the game for years. They were the first in the world to beat heroic 25-man Anub'arak and heroic Sinestra among other honors.

The race to world-first in Highmaul was a close one. Paragon trailed behind other guilds throughout Mythic mode. The only other world-first they had in any difficulty for Highmaul was the Heroic version of Imperator. They managed to kill Mythic Imperator and previous boss the Butcher within hours of each other to leapfrog the competition.

It's possible that Paragon could've completed Highmaul even faster than they did. Blizzard staggered the release of the raid. The Normal and Heroic difficulties opened on December 2nd, while Mythic wasn't available until the 9th.

Paragon and other top guilds won't have to wait too long for a new challenge. Blizzard plans to launch the next raid, Blackrock Foundry, sometime in January.

More casual players, meanwhile, are still waiting for access to the rest of Highmaul. The last two wings of Looking for Raid difficulty, the easiest version, will be rolled out in the coming weeks.
