Comparing Kel'Thuzad Strategies from 2006 to Classic WoW's Modern Approach
took a look at their guild's first Kel'Thuzad kill (from late 2006) and decided to compare it to the modern day videos of Kel'Thuzad kills that are happening on Twitch. While watching the video, user marmotzero decided to make a list of all the interesting things that have changed for the community over time.

Differences from 2006 to Modern Kel'Thuzad Kills
Back in 2006, Easy Company didn't regularly get World Buffs for raids. This is apparently the first time the guild ever went and got world buffs, for their first Kel'Thuzad kill! Back in 2006, getting and stacking world buffs for as much time wasn't really a strategy for most guilds. You can even see in the video when the guild
runs to Naxxramas from Light's Hope Chapel
, instead of using level 20 Warlock Alt summoners.
For Easy Company's first kill on Kel'Thuzad, they ran 16 healers. 8 Holy
, 4 Holy
, and 4 Restoration
. This point isn't actually too different by modern guilds, as ONSLAUGHT
did use 16 healers for Kel'Thuzad
when they achieved world third on Classic WoW. It seems most guilds are getting KT down with around 12-16 Healers. Most guilds are only using 1 Druid, however!
As to be expected, all four of Easy Company's
Tanks are deep into the Protection talent tree. Back in 2006, nearly every guild was rocking Deep Prot Warrior Tanks, because it just made sense. If you're tanking, you should be in the tanking tree. Oh, how times have changed!
Both Thunderfuries that Easy Company acquired leading up to this kill are used by Fury Warriors, instead of a Tank! On top of that, nobody in the raid was using
, one of the most important items in the entire game for non-Human and non-Orc Warriors.
Easy Company's Kel'Thuzad kill was
12 minutes, 30 seconds long
. By today's standards, that would be the slowest kill in the world by a mile. As of the time of this article being published, 135 guilds have killed Kel'Thuzad, ranging in kill times from 2:54 to 8:04.
Easy Company killed Kel'Thuzad for the first time and they
already had an
This is because their first Anub'Rekhan kill was June 21, 2006. Which means they had been farming Naxxramas for
before they finally brought down Kel'Thuzad! This is actually in line with most guilds in the world at the time, surprisingly.
