Echo became the World of Warcraft Race to World First Sepulcher of the First Ones champion after taking down the Jailer in 277 pulls on Saturday.

Immediately after defeating the final boss, the players cheered and celebrated their victory. A clip featuring the moments before the Jailer’s defeat was posted on Twitter by EchoGuild.

Celebrating the Race to World First players

“Jailer has been jailed but kinda sad that the progress is over now,” Echo’s xerwo wrote on Twitter. In addition to saying that the Race to World First Sepulcher of the First Ones event was enjoyable, xerwo added that the bosses were well-tuned.

Fellow competitors, fans and supporters also congratulated Echo on their victory. Many of them expressed their experiences on Twitter.

“Huge congrats to @EchoGuild for the amazing finish,” wrote Dave Greco, the senior visual development artist at Blizzard. “My heart can’t even take it just from watching.” Greco then acknowledged the other World of Warcraft guilds that are still racing to defeat the final boss.

The Race to World First continues

Echo also acknowledged efforts of Liquid, who decided to pause on the raiding for some much-needed rest. “Please respect their decision, and remember to treat people how you want to be treated yourself. GGs!” wrote Echo’s Naowh.

During the livestream, Max “Maximum” Smith said his team will be flying home after a meal and will resume the race after the weekend. He said he wanted to give the players that time off. “People are just checked out, the race has never gone this long. Playing from behind is extremely, extremely taxing,” he said. The state of stress and fatigue played a part in the decision.

“Said this on stream but we’re stopping after dinner tonight and flying home tomorrow,” Maximum tweeted. “We’ll finish the race strong on Monday and onwards if necessary, but right now we’re all burnt to a crisp.”

In addition to Liquid, the other top guilds racing to defeat the Jailer include SK Pieces, Method, Skyline, BDGG, Team Aster, Jitianhong, Chao Jie and KeaHoarl.
