What are split raids in World of Warcraft?

Published

on

When it comes to World of Warcraft’s Race to World First (RWF), top guilds like Complexity-Limit and Echo will take any opportunity to eke out whatever small advantage they can. 

As teams fight to be the first to complete World of Warcraft’s latest raid, every piece of gear that guilds can get for one of their top raiders is crucial. And there are specific ways that guilds can optimize how players get that gear.

A “split raid” in WoW is when a guild clears a raid multiple times with different groups of players. In the context of the RWF, split raids are usually something that guilds will do in the first few days following a Mythic raid’s release. 

While the guild can’t do split raids on Mythic difficulty at that point, they can instead do split raids on lower difficulties, like Heroic, and try to funnel specific gear to characters that need it for Mythic progression.

Due to the personal loot system in retail WoW, split raids typically consist of guilds loading their raid composition exclusively with characters that share an armor type or weapon that they can equip.

By making as many people in the raid as possible all comparable in armor type, guilds can highly increase the likelihood that a specific item drops. And no matter who gets it, the guild makes sure that it can be traded to whichever character needs it for RWF progression.

In retail WoW, players can’t trade items that are an item level upgrade for them. So this means that all players in top guilds like Echo and Limit spend large amounts of time maintaining and gearing alternate characters that can be used to feed gear to ones in the main raid’s progression.

Once the RWF is over, top guilds will continue to do split raids, except they’ll do them on Mythic instead of just Heroic. This ensures that alternate characters have higher item level gear so that they can again help to feed gear to main characters in the next RWF.

Additionally, the roster of top guilds in RWF is deep enough that they typically have multiple players who may not be in during the progression of a specific boss encounter. While players are on the bench, they’ll usually do in-game activities like run Mythic+ dungeons to get targeted pieces of loot. Sometimes, those pieces will be for a main character that the guild wants to use for progression on a later boss. But sometimes those pieces might be for alternate characters that need to get gear of a certain item level so that they can later feed a specific piece of loot to a main character during split raids.

Some guilds that aren’t fighting for World First kills run split raids, but as you can imagine, the time investment required to have two or more characters prepared to raid is immense. Even the best guilds in the world regularly use social media and other outlets to try to recruit average players to help feed them gear for split raids during the RWF.

Many hardcore players and fans who aren’t rostered on a team like Limit, Echo, Pieces, or Method jump at the opportunity to support their favorite guild in-game by trying to give them a better chance at getting gear in the first week of a new patch.

League players attempt to set record for largest shield on one champion with over 38,000 shielding

Published

on

If you’re trying to set a world record, maybe all you need is a whole bunch of patient friends and a ton of time on your hands. In the case of this group of League of Legends players, they were determined to set the world record for the largest shield on one champion.

After much deliberation, they got a shield that was just over 38,000 strong, but it took them multiple tries and plenty of experimentation. You won’t be able to achieve this supershield in a regular game, but it’s still fun to see this massive shield on an unkillable Sett.

Cypher player highlights wall bang setup on Ascent’s B site

Published

A Cypher player discovered an excellent setup for B site on Ascent that can help defend the site and secure a few easy kills. 

Using abilities effectively in VALORANT can easily determine the outcome of a match. Players who are unprepared for an enemy push can be overwhelmed and die quickly or be forced to retreat. But setting up a strong defense can help you hold the site or at least buy time for your teammates to rotate. For example, VALORANT player khemyc uploaded a short clip explaining how to use Cypher’s ability to easily hold B site on Ascent.
