WoW: Shadowlands' Sanctum Of Domination Raid Finally Cleared On Mythic Difficulty, But Not Without Some Drama

  • World of Warcraft: Shadowlands' newest raid, the Sanctum of Domination, has finally been cleared on the game's Mythic difficulty following an intense world-first race between the game's top guilds over the last week.

    The honors went to the European guild Echo, who defeated the raid's final boss, Sylvanas Windrunner, after 176 attempts over four days and with zero deaths on their final attempt to boot, according to Icy Veins. For a while the race was neck and neck between Echo and the guild Complexity-Limit, but Echo managed to eke out the victory, despite taking a break overnight.
