World's first Kil'jaeden kill

World's first Kil'jaeden kill

Kil'jaeden, the final boss of World of Warcraft, has finally been put in the ground.

European World of Warcraft guild SK Gaming has claimed the first ever kill of Kil'jaeden, the current endgame boss of World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade according to reports from Eurogamer.

Kil'jaeden was the final boss of the Sunwell Plateau raid dungeon, first released in the Fury of the Sunwell update two months ago, but until now nobody has been able to bring him down.

SK Gaming though has claimed the honour of bringing the second cycle of the game to a close, as Blizzard will not be adding any more major raid dungeons to World of Warcraft until the release of the next expansion pack, Wrath of the Lich King.

Reaching and toppling the beastie apparently took SK Gaming a total of three days on their server, Vek'nilash. Interestingly though, even though the gates to Kil'jaeden have been open a day longer in America, no US guild has managed to yet bring the monster down. The kill also marks the end of a run by SK Gaming's rival clan, Nihilum who had previously held the honour of being the first guild in the world to down every single boss in World of Warcraft since C'thun was first put in the ground two years ago.

SK Gaming managed to grab themselves a load of phat loot for the achievement, obviously - a Hammer of Sanctification, Thalassian Ranger Gauntlets, Cover of Ursol the Wise, Cover of Ursoc the Mighty and Hand of the Deceiver. The proud adventurers consisted of on feral druid, three hunters, one mage, two paladins, four priests, three rogues, five shamans, four warlocks, two warriors and one girl.

Want to pass on your congratulations, or just make snide comments about the rampant geekery? Either way you can do it in the forums.

Because there are no girls on the intarweb, clearly :D.

Anyway you heard it here folks! The game is now over, you may all return to the loving embraces of your families, friends and significant others, I'm sure they've all been missing you terribly!

wow is their job...

just like in every other mmorpg the raiding elite is also the elite if it comes to other aspects of the game, including acquiring in game coin, now what would they spend that coin on if they get all fancy loot "for free", they have the choice to stockpile it or sell it for rl money to the noobs...
now what sane human would choose the first option?

played wow for 3 years, as the so called hardcore elite.

I get 35 days holiday a year. Plan the world first kills out and people just take off Wednesday Thursday Friday for the kill. Id think 90% of sk actually does have a job. I know most of my guild does.

Hardcore isnt very hardcore when you only raid 2 days a week for total clearance of everything anyway. (mh bt is doable in 5hrs both zones ) sunwell a day. Hardwork ? hardcore? i think not

your story is outta date btw

Well I play on a private server. All the bosses are much easier because they are only partially scripted. But they have not implemented Sunwell yet so I have not played this guy. No doubt people will be beating him they day they put him in though.

One day they will get it close to retail difficulty though. At least it doesn't take me 3 months to get to lvl70 like it would on retail. I really don't understand how millions of people have to time to play WoW like they do.

Didn't they get the Sword of a Thousand Truths ? (South park reference for you guys ...)

There are several minor mistakes in this news post I'm afraid.

Nihilum had the world first on C'thun yes, but not every boss after that. They did kill the Kel'thuzad (Naxxramas end boss) as world first, but nothing in between.

With the release of The Burning Crusade, there were several other guilds who have got world first kills: 7 world first kills were done by the now disbanded Death & Taxes, most on T5 content which is why some don't give them as much value, but in truth at the time this was more difficult than what Black Temple and Mt.Hyjal offered afterwards. There's also two by Curse (now known as SK-Gaming) and one by Afterlife.

Nihilum did manage to get all the world first kills in Black Temple, where the former, before Sunwell, end-game boss Illidan is. With the Sunwell released (patch 2.4), Nihilum has only had one world first, which was the 4th boss, Eredar Twins. Though they claim they were only aiming for world firsts on the last two bosses in Sunwell just prior to it's release, due to the way Blizzard allowed the encounters to be tested on their patch test realms.

Another thing worth mentioning is that even though Sunwell was released long ago, the instance structure was such that it was not possible to gain access to Kil'Jaeden until very recently and in my opinion the news post fails to explain this.

Sorry to be nitpicking freak, but I don't like seeing wrong info on bit-tech =]
