World first Burning Crusade Classic raid clears - Gruul, Karazhan and Magtheridon

A European guild called <Progress> has managed to get three Burning Crusade Classic world-first Tier 4 raid clears less than 2 days after the expansion's release.

World of Warcraft: Classic players started streaming through the Dark Portal to Outland to level up in Burning Crusade Classic, and while most have not even reached level 70 yet, or even thought about unlocking flying, guilds have been racing for world-first raid clears in what can only be described as a feat of utter dedication. <Progress> became the first guild in the world not only to clear Karazan but also Gruul's Lair and Magtheridon. 

TBC Classic World First raid clears

At around 01:00 CET on 3rd June, roughly 24 hours after the servers for TBC Classic went live, <Progress> on Firemaw (EU) became the first guild to kill all bosses in Karazan, as well as Gruul's Lair and Magtheridon. 

This means the guild managed to level up many of its members to 70, but still have quite a few under 70 as well. That didn't stop them from taking down High King Maulgar in only three attempts.

The team then went on to Karazan to clear the first few bosses, then back to Gruul's Lair to finish off Gruul himself, and then killed Magtheridon as well.

They then moved back to Karazan (at this point a player even fell asleep) after gearing up in dungeons a bit to achieve the world first tier 4 raids clear in Burning Crusade Classic.

One of the <Progress> members, Tetsu, recorded their entire push for TBC Classic world firsts, which you can view via two videos below if you have time.

A huge congratulations go out to <Progress> who managed to get all three Tier 4 raids cleared first in Burning Crusade Classic.

Now, we hope to see the EU guild get some rest, this was a non-stop push since the release of the Classic expansion.
