How many players does it take to clear a high-end raid in World of Warcraft? If you said “20,” you would be correct for Mythic difficulty. If you said “anywhere between 10 and 25,” you would be correct for every lower difficulty. If you said “five players in very good gear,” you… would actually also be correct, judging by the raid group that recently took on Blackrock Foundry with five people and managed to clear almost all of it.
There’s a video past the cut if you doubt it, even! While the run wasn’t a complete success (Blackhand was whittled down to 15% but not actually killed), it’s pretty surprising that a group of five could clear even the majority of the Foundry content on normal. Check out the video past the break if you’d like to see some of how it was done.
