A European raiding guild has announced that they have already cleared the available raid bosses in Wrath of the Lich King, World of Warcraft's latest expansion. The guild TwentyFifthNovember is a collaboration between Nihilum and SK Gaming - two staples of the cutting edge raiding scene for years now. And no, TwentyFifthNovember isn't the real guild name; it's when we'll find out what the real name is.
According to MMO Champion, the guild killed Kel'thuzad of the Naxxramas dungeon, Sartharion of the Obsidian Sanctum, and Malygos of the Eye of Eternity within a few hours of each other on Saturday afternoon.
With Wrath of the Lich King servers opening late on Wednesday night, it only took the guild 68 hours and 30 minutes to get to a stage where it could defeat the hardest boss.
A message from the guild on the TwentyFifthNovember site was critical of how easy it had found the 25-player raids to be.
"This is both a moment of triumph and a cause for concern," said the statement.
"Did Blizzard miscalculate in the tuning of these encounters? Or is this Blizzard folding under the weight of a large casual player base that demands to be on equal footing with end-game raiders?"
One thing the players from the guild may fail to realize is that they are even beyond what most people would call hardcore raiders. Most of the hardcore raiders won't be repeating this feat until at least a month from now. The majority of the casual raiders will be reaching the same point 3-6 months from now, just before whatever 3.1 will be. Which, timing and tuning wise, is just about right.
