The current ID of WoW Classic provided a whole series of remarkable raid successes. We've already reported on the new best times in the Pitchwing Lair and Molten Core (beating Nefarian in under 19 minutes ... still awesome). In the last few days, we've also had two unusual raid groups head to Onyxia's lair to challenge the old dragoness.

Also noteworthy is a raid from Herod's (US) Fully Exposed guild that consisted of 33 hunters and set a new record time of 58 seconds (!) (via Warcraftlogs). Other classes like Warlock and Rogue only had the task of keeping important debuff effects like Curse of Folly or Weaken Armor active on the boss. They were joined by a Warrior and Druid each to grab the boss's attention, as well as two healing Shamans.


fact that the Waidmen are able to send Onyxia down so quickly is also due to the way
