    Hi all,

    Yes I know molten core has been cleared many times before by lvl 50 twink guilds throughout times. However to my knowledge nobody has done it in this expansion, legion, yet. Therefore I created this thread to keep all 50 twinks and everyone else interested updated on Molten core process by 50 twinks here in legion. So we can send our screenshots here, our recruitment for the raid and tips and tricks for the encounters.

    So far from my testing, I found protection warrior actually to perform better than my pala tank and druid tank. However that was only with 1 healer and for the 2 first stone giants in the raid.
    On Sunday we will have our first raid in a long time, and hopefully we can fully clear it, but better not to expect too much from first try in a long time, it is mostly a 'test current specs and gear out' run.
    Until we have found the best spec and class setups we plan to go into AQ40 as well, if of course, there will still be enough people actively playing 50 twinks. This is important or we can only continue dreaming about progressing in AQ40 obviously.

    could be fun if others actually tried to accomplish the same and maybe with other class and spec combinations. We couldn't get further than these two mobs though as the next one either silence or spawns adds and we didn't have enough dps to survive it.

    The first raid in recent time is already on THIS Sunday 29th October from 16:30 (but feel free to hang on for later as some people join later) on EU Alliance. Add my btag Andrakla#2568 or join us on discord https://discord.gg/Jdkdw4Q if you want to join and got a 50 twink outside Ravencrest and Carried by ilvl (our guild). Discord WILL be required, at least to be able to listen. We'll probably raid for 3-4 hours or as long there are enough people staying to continue progress or until Ragnaros is dead!
    The event on XPOFF Calendar: https://xpoff.com/calendar/50-twinks-in-molten-core.50/event

    So far 12 have signed up internally. But all 50 twinks are welcome across Europe. All are welcome, but solid tanks and any healer are highly appreciated!

    Tanks
    Atm, Guardian druid and Protection warrior seems at the top for tanking, BM tank is relatively untested and paladin tank is also viable if someone wants, but doesn't seem to be on pair with the others.

    DPS
    Hunters are very viable and ranged. Rogues and warriors are decent as well. Other classes and specs are also viable, but many still mostly untested for the most recent gear and adjustments.

    Healers
    Druids serve fairly well as raid support healers and tools BR/innervate etc. Disc priests with great externals, shields and effective and fast heals are ranking very high. Mistweaver monks together with disc priests are probably the top healers. With resto shaman, druids and paladins after.


    Wish us luck with our first run in a long time!

    The raid will be streamed live here: https://www.twitch.tv/andrakla

    from last testings in MC. Brewmaster seems indeed to be a viable tank. High hp and delays dmg works well for our situation where the mobs does extra dmg on us (crushing/crits). Regarding healers, I forgot to mention holy priests which hasn't been tested recently, but has been before, and has powerful heals and cds too. Holy priests are probably one of the top healers.
    Dpswise from todays testing Rogue>warr>shammy. Assa rogue works really well with their dots as they can't miss after applied.
    Holy pala also seems to be ahead of resto druids for healers and indeed viable.

    yay, I know it, it is up to date still as no new changes has been done to the enchant scaling. However, we soon know which ones is for what etc. as it has been a while since it got changed, but thx nonetheless ^^.

    Perhaps I should make something like that for gearing hmm.

    If I were to do this at 60, how easy would it be? I like the idea of being able to wear the items that drop. Like would a 2 man team destroy all these raids? What's a good comp, probably disc I imagine for dps/heals.

    Thank you Sponsor. We'll also be trying AQ40. Hopefully we'll get an as big show up as today, it was a blast with almost 20 50 twinks in the raid! and still more people logging on after the raid who wanted to join but we simply just cleared it too fast ;)

    Congratulations to Ravencrest 50 twink guild <Carried By iLvl> and all 50 twinks who were in the raid today on our first Ragnaros kill and full clear in Legion!

    With almost 20 twinks in the group it was a smooth run, without any real wipes. Our only requirement for our runs is that you are lvl 50 with xp locked and that you can come on discord (mic not requirement but to listen is).

    Thanks for everyone who came, and hopefully this is just the beginning of more succesful 50 twink raids to come again in the near future. Next stop AQ40!
    (unless we can get summoned inside BWL somehow something)
    For everyone in CBI, I've made mutiple attendance check events in the calendar where you can sign up the days you are available to raid. We will pick the day with most sign ups.

    have already cleared old hillsbrad about a year ago, as guardian+mistweaver. Wasn't hard enough unfortunately.
