World of Warcraft’s latest expansion, Shadowlands, has been out for a little over a month – and just over a week ago, the first raid opened its doors to Mythic contenders in the race to World First – with all the effort culminating today.

On December 15th and 16th, the Mythic difficulty of Castle Nathria opened for North American and European World of Warcraft servers, respectively. With this, came another iteration of the race to World First, which involves multiple guilds trying their hardest to attain the kill on the final boss before the rest. One thing to note is that the mythic difficulty is far tougher than the previous three: LFR, Normal and Heroic, with the final boss having a secret phase – never seen during beta testing by the public eye.

For the last week, teams have been fighting tooth-and-nail but two quickly pulled out ahead – Complexity Limit and Echo, one possibly more well-known than the other. However, Echo are an extremely well-known group of players who were once part of the infamous Method guild who have claimed multiple World First kills within the game.

Multiple guilds streamed their race via Twitch, allowing viewers to witness the amazing fights in action and maybe catch a glimpse of the race being won. However, Echo made an executive decision to not stream yesterday, knowing that the NA Limit team would get an advantage from their earlier reset and possibly utilise any great strategies too. But that did not matter as Limit went into today set for some absolutely amazing pulls and were able to claim the first kill for themselves as Sire Denathrius fell.

Here’s a list of the classes the 20-player group utilized for their massive achievement (thanks to Wowhead and Raider.io):

  • 2 Tanks: Protection Warrior and Vengeance Demon Hunter
  • 4 Healers: 1 Restoration Shaman, 2 Holy Paladins, 1 Discipline Priest
  • 6 Melee DPS: 4 Unholy Death Knights, 1 Windwalker Monk, 1 Arms Warrior
  • 8 Ranged DPS: 3 Marksmanship Hunters, 2 Boomkin Druids, 1 Fire Mage, 2 Affliction Warlocks.

Unfortunately for Rogues, they were the only class left out of the equation in this extremely difficult fight but that’s not to say that they were not a great choice in general. As we continue to learn about everything that Shadowlands has to offer, we will have to wait to see if Complexity Limit will continue to dominate the World First races or if Echo, or someone else, will take Shadowlands by storm. Congratulations to Limit on their fantastic achievement.
