Top WoW Player Secretly Helps Others in Raids

What to do when your guild in World of Warcraft has already dealt with the biggest PvE challenge of the moment? Follow the example of the Complexity Limit leader and use your experience to help other players raid. Preferably incognito.

Highlights:
  1. Maximum - leader of World of Warcraft's top PvE guild Complexity Limit helps other players in raids;
  2. The streamer tries to anonymously support groups of random players or those from smaller guilds with advice and, if necessary, a handful of in-game experienced friends.

If you've ever tried your hand at MMORPGs, you probably know that they don't always have much in common with relaxing fun. Especially if you are a member of a guild that takes its approach to subsequent raids seriously. Complexity Limit is one such guild, the first to complete Castle Nathria (the first raid from Shadowlands expansion) on Mythic difficulty back in December. This means that currently, guild members don't have much "work" to do, at least until new content is released. However, the leader of Complexity Limit - Maximum - doesn't complain about boredom. He's found something else to do in his downtime from beating records: secretly helping other WoW players with raids.

Maximum's idea is not complicated. The streamer chooses a nickname that is not associated with him and finds members from one of the smaller guilds that have problems with this or that raid. Usually in such cases, the players are found within so-called pug (Pickup groups or groups made up of random participants with a common goal). Maximum then watches the team's actions and advises them on how to tackle the challenge. If that's not enough, the streamer offers the option to invite friends to help. This was the case with the group trying to tackle Sire Denathrius, which proved to be beyond the players' strength. However, with the support of Maximum (who remained incognito), the team made significant progress. Finally, when Limit invited a handful of experienced players, with the raid lead's permission, it only took three attempts ("pulls") for the group to earn the coveted achievement for defeating Sire Denathrius.

For Maximum, this is not the first time. When many guilds were still trying to defeat N'ztoth in May 2020 (via Reddit), Complexity Limit's leader also rushed to their aid (though not necessarily directly or with anonymity). On his channel he publishes recordings from such sessions, but also materials with advice on how to run raids.
