The intense Race to World First in World of Warcraft’s Amirdrassil has come to an end, with Echo Esports claiming victory after a gripping battle against Team Liquid to conquer the raid’s ultimate boss, Fyrakk the Blazing, on the highest difficulty. The World of Warcraft development team praised Echo for their hard-earned win, and Echo expressed gratitude to Team Liquid for contributing to an unforgettable competition in the MMORPG’s history.

This race commenced a week after the release of World of Warcraft Patch 10.2, Guardians of the Dream. Amirdrassil, The Dream’s Hope, the final raid of the Dragonflight expansion, featured nine bosses and a legendary axe called Fyr’alath the Dreamrender as a coveted prize. Fyrakk the Blazing, one of the Primal Incarnate dragons corrupted by Shadowflame, stood at the end of the raid, posing a significant challenge for WoW players. The Mythic race began concurrently with Dragonflight Season 3 on November 14, following two initial days spent on the Normal and Heroic versions of Amirdrassil, allowing challengers to gear up and familiarize themselves before facing the Mythic difficulty.

After an intense two-week race, Echo Esports secured the world-first kill of Fyrakk on Mythic difficulty. Both Echo Esports and Team Liquid had brought Fyrakk down to 1% health on Sunday, November 26. Despite Team Liquid’s earlier claim to World First in the previous raid tier and their initial engagement with Fyrakk, Echo, based in Europe, triumphed with a decisive kill after over 300 attempts. With members from both guilds streaming their perspectives, World of Warcraft players witnessed each nail-biting attempt to defeat Fyrakk.

After the fiery dragon’s defeat, Echo rejoiced and commended each other for their hard-fought victory, marking their fourth world-first clear as an organization. The World of Warcraft development team extended congratulations to Echo Esports for their triumph. Echo, in turn, congratulated Team Liquid for their contribution to making the Amirdrassil Race to World First an exhilarating event. Players also expressed gratitude to Blizzard for crafting Amirdrassil into one of the most memorable raids in World of Warcraft.

Now that Mythic Amirdrassil has concluded, the World of Warcraft community eagerly anticipates Dragonflight’s final patches and the forthcoming expansion, The War Within. The question lingers on how the next raid tier will surpass the legacy of Amirdrassil.
