The newest raid in World of Warcraft, Battle for Dazar’Alor, is one of the most interesting ones added to the game yet. There are cross-faction switches as players navigate the story around the Alliance’s raid on the Zandalari capital, and the chance to battle major lore characters like High Tinker Mekkatorque, King Rhastakhan, and Jaina Proudmoore. On January 29th the Mythic phase for Battle of Dazar’alor was opened up. This started the race for World First!.
Method took stage, sponsored by Red Bull, and streamed the whole event live on Twitch. Pulling in over 100,000 viewers at some points and having nearly 3 million hours spent watching the stream over the past week. Viewers we able to watch a fully commented version or some of the raiders were also streaming their POV. It took over 300 pulls for the guild to finally beat Jaina.
Although Limit did not stream their progress, viewers were able to track the guild’s progress through Dazar’Alor; Limit beat Method on the race to Jaina, but were unable to defeat the sorceress in time to claim the title of World First. It would be nice to watch a side by side stream of the two guilds going at it the next race.
