Raider.IO Presents: Class Clash!
Now that Season 3 of Shadowlands has kicked off, and the Race to World First has finished (congratulations to winning guild Echo!), it’s time to get into some keys and win some prizes! That’s right, the first Push Week of the Season is here. After some community feedback from the last Season, we’re looking at making more Push Week events that have a special flair to them, similar to our Break the Meta event…some set of rules or challenges that go beyond just pushing keys as high as you can. Let’s mix it up and try something new!
We’re excited to introduce the first of these new Push Week formats: the Raider.IO Class Clash! It’s time to pit Druids vs. Warlocks vs. Death Knights, and more. The Class Clash will be a live-server event that starts this coming reset, April 26/27 (Americas/Europe), where teams made up of 5 of the same Class will compete for in-game prizes. We imagine this will be a hey-day for hybrids, but anything can happen in Push Week!
*Note: To enter this competition, you will need to join the #class-clash channel of our Discord - more directions on How To Enter can be found below!

How it Works
This event will take place on LIVE servers, and the competition period will be from server reset to server reset the following week for the eligible regions.
The competition is open to all players who complete a keystone with 5 players of the same Class during the competition period in either the Americas/Oceania region or the European region. The regions will be combined to create one competition, with the players completing the highest scoring keystones earning a prize.
While we are not requiring registered teams for this event, we do want to format it around the bracket system that we use for team leaderboards. While we want to encourage a fun new key-running experience using 5 of the same Class, we still aim to maintain our bracket format to allow for multiple different levels of competition.
After the competition period is over, we will be awarding prizes to the players that complete the highest scoring keystone - of any dungeon - on the Class Clash Leaderboards for each of the following brackets:
|Diamond||+26 and up|
|Platinum||+21 - 25|
|Gold||+16 - 20|
|Silver||+11 - 15|
|Bronze||+2 - 10|
As per all of our Push Week events, each Battle.net Account is only eligible for one prize. In order to ensure the integrity and fairness of the event, each group of players is only eligible to be considered the winners of one bracket, and any dungeon completed with minimum 3 of the same players will be considered the same group. A group will earn the prizing of their highest bracket won, and if the same group ends the competition period with the highest scoring keystone in a lower bracket, that run will be considered ineligible and the next highest scoring keystone will be determined the winner!
Keystone score is based on keystone level and completion time.
Class Clash Leaderboard
In order to keep track of your runs and the competition, we will have a Class Clash specific Leaderboard that will only show Timed Runs that are made up of 5 characters of the same Class!
You can find the Class Clash Leaderboard here.
At this time we are unable to provide prizes for players from the Korea, Taiwan, and China regions, so they are unfortunately not eligible to win anything. However, we’ve included those regions on the Class Clash Leaderboard so that those players can still play along and compete for Class Clash bragging rights!
We will be awarding prizes to each member of the groups that earn the highest scoring keystone within each of the above brackets, across both eligible regions (Americas/Europe), that are made up of 5 characters of the same Class. Prizes will consist of Blizzard store mounts, Blizzard store pets, and World of Warcraft game time. The prize value for each bracket increases as you climb into higher brackets, so you will be rewarded for pushing into the highest bracket your team can reach!
|Bracket||Prizes per Player|
|Diamond||60 days WoW game time & 1 store mount|
|Platinum||60 days WoW game time & 1 store pet|
|Gold||60 days WoW game time|
|Silver||1 store mount|
|Bronze||1 store pet|
Each Blizzard Account is only eligible for a single prize.
We strongly recommend that you run with the Raider.IO Live Tracking enabled in your client to ensure that all your runs are properly tracked and verified! Read more about this feature here.
- Players must be in either the Americas & Oceania region or the Europe region.
- All members of the winning teams must have completed the winning runs on a character that is the same in-game Class as the rest of the party.
- Each Blizzard Account is only eligible for a single prize.
- Winning dungeon runs must be properly entered into the Competition (see below).
- In order to facilitate prizing, please have each member of your group link their Discord and BattleTag IDs to their Raider.IO User Profile. If we cannot get in touch with you, we cannot award you prizes!
The competition period lasts for the entire in-game weekly reset:
Americas & Oceania: April 26 - May 3, 2022
Europe: April 27 - May 4, 2022
Winners will be announced by May 14th, 2022.
How To Enter
As mentioned previously, the event will not require Team registration, as we do not wish for players to be potentially held back by Team membership when putting together full groups of the same Class. Therefore, entry for this competition will be based on the specific Dungeon Run that you and your group complete. In order to enter the Class Clash event, please follow these 5 steps:
- Join the Raider.IO Discord and make your way to the #class-clash-registration channel.
- Link the URL of your Completed Dungeon Run in the registration channel*.
- Make sure each member of your party has their Discord and BattleTag IDs linked to their Raider.IO User Profiles, or your entry will not be accepted.
- Once the Warchief Bot has confirmed your entry, you are good to go!
- If you improve your score for any previously entered runs, simply enter again with the newer, higher-scoring run.
*In order to link the URL of your Completed Dungeon Run, click on either the Rank, Dungeon, Level, or Time column in your specific run, and it will bring up the run-specific page. Example: https://raider.io/mythic-plus-runs/season-sl-2/9802408-27-the-necrotic-wake
Time to Rally the Rogues, Wrangle the Warriors, Purvey the Paladins, and Muster the Mages, to compete for Class Clash dominance!
