It''s no secret that World of Warcraft Classics raid races are far less of a spectacle than those of today WoW. While retail WoW races set the benchmark for lengthy raid races last months Sepulcher of the First Ones race lasted 19 daysClassics raids are continuing to be a test of lightning-fast quickness for participating guilds.

The Sunwell Plateau, the most recent released raid of The Burning Crusade Classics, was found just 51 minutes after it was released by the Chinese guild Old School earlier today.

According to WoW stats tracking site WarcraftLogs, Old School''s composition was composed of one tank, five healers, seven melee DPS, and 11 ranged DPS players. While KilJaeden died anywhere between seven and 10 minutes after pulling him, the boss was just six minutes and four seconds old.

According to historical data from WoW raiding guild Method, Raid mechanics were much simpler in the early years of WoW, and since players have had knowledge of how these mechanics work. For reference, the original Sunwell Race to World First was a walk in the park for many experienced players.

Five minutes after Old School claimed the first TBC Classic kill of KilJaeden, European guild Avatar followed up with their clear of the raid. In fact, the top ten most successful guilds participating in the race all earned their kills on the final boss within 90 minutes of the raids opening.

The Sunwell Plateau is the final raid of TBC Classic. The Classic community will begin to set its eyes on the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic, a rehashed version of WoWs third expansion, which will begin later this year.
