Taken at the Moment of my Death

August 30, 2013

Our guild is now 10/13 heroic Throne of Thunder.  The only bosses we have left to kill are H. Dark Animus, H. Lei Shen and Ra-Den.  It would be nice if we could get them down before 5.4 drops, but there’s not a lot of time left.  Also, these encounters are HARD.

Like, “Well, at least we’re wiping quickly” hard.

Heroic Dark Animus Wipe 2Stomping on our bodies to add insult to injury.

Last night Dark Animus went something like this:

OW!  Ow ow ow!  Why are they hitting so hard?!  Oh god, why?!?!

SPLAT!  Tank dead.

SPLAT SPLAT SPLAT!  One healer and two DPS dead.

RUN AWAY!  Try to brez someone but– SPLAT!  Now I’m dead.

“This is a wipe guys.”  NO, REALLY?!?!?

“You have wiped on Heroic Dark Animus at 1 min 4 sec.  You have 20 wipes on this difficulty.”

…Thanks for rubbing it in, boss mod.

Beautiful Image of Death

In between wipes I was chatting with Prinnie from That Was an Accident! on Real ID and she reminded me to take some epic screenshots of fail to post for everyone to enjoy.  I’m usually really terrible about remembering to hit Print Screen, especially when I’m in combat.  (I mean, come on, I’m trying to keep everyone alive, hitting Print Screen is dangerous!)  But there were a few moments (warning: understatement!) when death was inevitable and it really didn’t matter if I stopped to document our demise.  Though I had to be quick, because the wipes happened so darn FAST.

My favourite is this one.  I think it really gives a sense of what a clusterfuck last night was.

Heroic Dark Animus WipeI don’t think healers are supposed to have aggro on ALL the things.

I’m taking melee hits of over a million.  Also, I grabbed the shot just as I died.  Xperl is showing me as dead but Healbot hasn’t quite got the memo yet.

We did improve over the course of the evening though.  We’re hoping that if we get the first two minutes of the fight down the rest will be relatively easy.  *fingers crossed*

    First shot: Dark Animus comes for you. It’s practically running to your corpse just to stomp on it.

    Second shot: I like how your interface is all like, “-AGGRO-“. Aggro? YOU THINK NOBODY NOTICED!?

    I guess you can’t ALWAYS jump out the door.

      I do have a screenshot of me trying to get out the door even though I knew it wouldn’t work. I’d post it but my internet went down yesterday at 1 pm and the ISP isn’t sending someone to fix it until Sunday morning. That’s two days without internet! *twitches* Currently I’m at Barnes and Noble stealing their internet, because I had to see if anyone commented on my blog!

      Also, the internet went down while my poor baby Shaman was wiping in LFD. So the random pug people probably think that I ragelogged, and I can’t log onto WoW to rez my poor dead Shammy. 😦

      The internet has been a cruel mistress to me lately.

    I liked this and thought, oh, I don’t mean I liked that you’re all dead. I just liked the fact that I got to see in there where all the action is, lol.

      LOL suuuuuuure! You were probably wringing your hands with glee at the thought of our gruesome deaths! XD

      That’s ok, I understand. Just remember, this wipe was merely a set back! And so was the wipe before this one. And the wipe before that. And the wipe before THAT. Etc…

    Overkill, death-screenies are like bagging unicorns. It’s rare to get them at the right time, but you look FABULOUS while taking repeated punches to the face =).
