As we are patiently waiting for the Ulduar release on Classic WoW, this article will update you on how the newest classic raid will work on Warcraft Logs. Ulduar is a unique raid in terms of varying difficulties through hardmodes instead of normal or heroic. This means we have unique challenges to deal with in terms of handling progress, speedruns, parsing, and complete raids.
Combat Logging in Ulduar
As always with a new progress tier, we highly recommend you use multiple loggers for your raid to have a higher chance of capturing combat logs. We will not be able to verify progress or kills without working combat logs.
Learn how to log in our Getting Started article.
Read the full progress article for all information on progress handling.
We are doing progression points in Ulduar to handle the varying amounts of hardmodes throughout the raid. The optional bosses are not required, as we have never required optional bosses previously.
Flame Leviathan: 1-5 Points
Ignis the Furnace Master: 1 Point - OPTIONAL
Razorscale: 1 Point - OPTIONAL
XT-002 Deconstructor: 1 Point or 5 Points
The Assembly of Iron: 1, 3, or 5 Points
Kologarn: 1 Point
Auriaya: 1 Point - OPTIONAL
Freya: 1 (easy), or (3-5) Points
Thorim: 1 Point or 5 Points
Mimiron: 1 Point or 5 Points
Hodir: 1 Point or 5 Points
General Vezax: 1 Point or 5 Points
Yogg-Saron: 1-5 Points
Algalon the Observer: 5 Points
Defeating the Hardest Mode Assembly of Iron (Steelbreaker last), Yogg-0, and Algalon the Observer will award maximum progress points to the guild.
We have historically removed the downtime on some fights to not punish shorter kill times. Examples such as Reliquary of Souls in Black Temple had the downtime between boss phases removed. We are also implementing this on Mimiron intermissions and General Vezax hardmode (from 5% boss health to spawn of Saronite Animus).
All Star Points
With Hardmodes, we recognize the current ASP formula is lacking (from Sartharion testing). We will likely be changing the highest hardmode to 120-240 ASP, stay tuned for more details.
All Hardmodes rank higher than lower difficulties, similar to how Sartharion works.
Player 1 does 3k DPS on Hodir HM. Player 2 does 4k DPS on Hodir non-HM. Player 1 ranks higher as every HM parse ranks higher by default.
Boss Specific Changes
Read the full article on Ulduar Parsing Rules to see all the boss specific changes.
We will have statistics only for the highest hardmodes of each boss.
We are working on supporting Ulduar on Wipefest! This should be live in not too long, so stay tuned for more details.
