Official Raider.IO RWF Event Guide: Castle Nathria Edition



We have waited, and waited, and waited some more, but the Castle Nathria Race to World First (RWF) is finally upon us! Even with the Covid-19 pandemic throwing a damper on many guild’s plans, this is shaping up to be the biggest and most exciting RWF yet. We are especially excited to have partnered with the many guilds and organizations world-wide who are putting on RWF events, to provide them with seamless raid and character data integration.

It is easy to lose track with so many different events going on, so we have compiled a RWF Event Guidebook, complete with all of the details you’ll need to tune in and watch your favourite guilds race for raiding glory. In addition to this Guidebook, everything you need to keep up with the RWF is right here at Raider.IO. Keep that browser tab open for live global coverage, updates, insights, and more!

Here are the details for all of the events we are partnered with, and more around the world, sorted by world rankings in Ny’alotha.
