Update, March 22:
The 50-minute mark has fallen in the WoW Classic raid Naxxramas this Darkmoon Faire period after all! The EU guild none of the above from the EU server Firemaw defeated Kel'Thuzad after an insane 48 minutes and 48 seconds (via Warcraftlogs).
Incidentally, the guild claimed this achievement during a community tournament called "Naxxramas Raid Masters," which took place from March 10 to March 21. The prize pool was 10,000 US dollars, the players of "nota" could now secure 4,000 US dollars of it.
By the way, the EU community Tribe from Sulfuron also set a very good time, with 50:32 minutes. If you'd like to watch the event after the fact, check it out here on Twitch.
Original news from March 16:
The WoW Classic guild from the author of these lines usually takes between three and four hours to completely clear Naxxramas. Sure, that doesn't really pass for a "speedrun", but it's not our goal at all. We want to master the content with a manageable expenditure of time and gold, take some desired loot pieces with us if possible, enable newcomers to get their first skills and experience chilled and fun raid evenings.
On a completely different level, the guilds are preparing month after month for the week when players can get an extra world buff at the Darkmoon Faire. The March edition of this "It's Speedrun Time!" week is over, and once again various communities were able to set personal, faction-wide, region-wide, or even world records. Here are some concrete achievements from the last few days (via Warcraftlogs):
- The Chinese guild Noobs beat Progress' record from February by 43 seconds with a time of 50:53 minutes. Congratulations on the new speedrun record for Naxxramas!
- The two EU record holders Progress and SALAD BAKERS were not able to set new best times in this ID. However, their February times are still good enough for 2nd place (51:36 minutes) and 3rd place (51:44 seconds).
- The fastest US guild is Reign, from the "streamer" server Faerlina, and defeated Kel in 52:46 (5th place).
- The fastest Horde guild is from the EU server Gehennas. Dreamstate defeated Naxx in 56:39 minutes (10th place).
- The first German guild to beat Naxxramas in under an hour was For teh Horde from the small but mighty realm Heartstriker - congratulations!
- The home server of the author of these lines is also represented quite high up: The Horde guild Invoke brought Kel'Thuzad to its knees after 1:11:37 (DE#4, Horde#22). Congratulations!
By the way, it's possible that we'll see a record or two in the coming hours. From experience, many guilds secure the associated World Buff again shortly before the end of the "DMJ Week" in order to take off once again with the new ID.
