A particularly affected person World of Warcraft participant has managed to solo a current-tier raid boss in the course of the Dragonflight pre-patch (opens in new tab). It took the Brewmaster monk Vennbrew over 5 hours to down Rygelon, the penultimate boss from the Fated Sepulcher of the First Ones raid.
The “world first pre-patch solo kill” occurred this previous weekend and was made attainable partly because of the introduction of Dragonflight’s class skills and their overlap with present Shadowlands powers. A number of the new class skills are themselves variations of covenant skills or legendary powers and a number of other lessons can profit from having mixtures that have been by no means meant for use collectively, making them fairly overpowered within the ultimate weeks of the enlargement.
It took Vennbrew round 90 makes an attempt to get it proper with the precise kill taking simply over 5 hours. That is not 5 hours’ value of tries—the precise encounter took that lengthy. Principally, as soon as the mechanic occurs which ought to enrage the boss and wipe the raid, Vennbrew needed to auto-attack for the remainder of the combat.
“As soon as I knew it was attainable, I simply needed to do it,” Vennbrew instructed Raider.io (opens in new tab). “I’ve watched individuals like Rextroy (opens in new tab) for a very long time, and I’ve all the time been enthusiastic about attempting to solo bosses. After three months of brainstorming on how this boss could be soloable, the thrill of truly doing it stored me going.”
It is common to return and solo raid bosses when you’re after a particular mount or wish to add to your transmog assortment, however raids typically aren’t soloable till they’re an enlargement or two outdated, because of the way in which energy scaling works for legacy content material. Raid bosses are supposed to be taken down by a minimal of ten gamers, so to see Rygelon defeated legitimately whereas the raid is an element of the present tier is absolutely fairly a feat.
All I can say is that when you’ve acquired any urgent plans to solo a raid boss, you’d higher get it completed earlier than Dragonflight launches on November 28 and people further powers go away for good.
