Everything you need to know about the Mythic World First Race in WoW Patch 9.1
With Patch 9.1 came the Sanctum of Domination, and another race for World First!
World of Warcraft: Shadowlands has released their next major raid, The Sanctum of Domination. The Mythic Raid opened the floodgates earlier today, Tuesday, July 13th. The Sanctum of Domination features ten bosses, including the fan favorites of Kel’Thuzad and Sylvanas Windrunner. Before the raid’s launch, Blizzard promoted both the race for World First and the organizations participating.
The Lineup – Can BDGG take the crown?
Leading off the pack is Big Dumb Gaming. Quite contrary to their name, this organization has had a major presence in the PvE World of Warcraft esports scene. BDGG is also partnered with Golden Guardians, who have have massive influence over the recent PvP WoW side.
Best of luck to everyone today 🤞
A lot of folk put in months of hard work that we begin to see today and tomorrow. Here's to the raiders, officers, helpers, producers and devs alike 💛

With an impressive record, BDGG could be contenders to take it all.
Complexity-Limit siege the jailer
Perhaps the favorite to take the World First title, Limit has a history of winning World Firsts. No stranger to success, Limit are acting as the defending champions from the past World First. Now partnered with the professional esports organization Complexity, Limit will defend the throne once again.
Get in here and watch us get the party started with some Mythic Tarragrue!

One of the most impressive lineups of raiders in recent memory, Complexity-Limit have another opportunity to flex their PvE muscles.
Ex-Method Echo squad
Formerly of Method, Echo have risen the ranks of European World of Warcraft PvE once again. The squad will get to display their veteran expertise on another raid in the Sanctum of Domination.

Method strikes back
Perhaps the most notable name in World of Warcraft esports is making a run at the World First title. The winners of countless titles in both PvP and PvE WoW esports, this win would add another trophy to their already extensive collection.
This Race to World First is going to be a grind and it's important for everyone to stay hydrated. 💪
Method has partnered with @liquidiv to ensure everyone this RWF feels better, faster!

With the race being anyone’s guess, all four organizations will have to be at the top of their game if they hope to be the first to defeat all ten bosses.
