Right now, I'd imagine the most competitive guilds and their 16 optimized, biochem characters are on the PTS ironing out the last 2 or 3 bosses in hard mode so they can just deliver on live the moment they hit 55.

I would honestly be surprised if the first 4 bosses aren't killed within 2 / 3 days of the early preview.
Doubtful. The progression race is going to come down to who can complete the content with the least gear, as even SM S&V/TfB is tuned for a tier of gear above 63.

As I said in my original post:

"Note: We realize that almost all (if not all) of these guilds are on PTS killing this content (most of us are currently on the last boss as I write this). We agree that S+V HM (and basically any hard mode version going forward) isn't really progression for us - NiM is progression raiding. So consider this a dry run of using this system for when TFB NiM goes live, of which I will then make a new thread."

So yeah - this is a dry run to test the new ranking system more than anything. Anyone that uses this to actual rank guilds is probably misguiding themselves - as mentioned above, it will be more of a race to see who can get 16 level 55s and then do it with the least amount of gear needed more than anything.

Also - as I mentioned, one guild has now cleared it on PTS - the rest have killed the first 6 of the 7 bosses (the rest being the guilds that were previously top ranked).

Two clears I believe. FF pre patch and Level Capped last night, post update.

And yes, nightmare is the real deal.

I just watched your kill video props and I wasn't sure if it was indeed the kill video considering he hit enrage at 10%.

Grats on the kill

<Chosen> supports this system too and will be participating. I am very interested to see how BW balances the bosses for the final release. What seemed like a cake-walk of an instance was retuned in the final week of PTS to have some easy bosses and some difficult, and varied greatly with 8-man's difficulty (some harder on 8man, some easier).

Mmmhmmm. We popped in on Sunday and found some fights that had been a breeze tuned up quite nicely


Can't wait to get started! See you all in a few weeks for HM, and some Nightmare *hopefully* not too far out.

Now that S+V is out and some people are raiding with 16 man already - please remember to post your kills here for tracking purposes!

Remember to take a proper proof shot as well - especially important to have the date on there because of PTS kills.
