Nefarian Dead

Posted in Team Lolcats on March 4th, 2011 by Kaylui

WE ARE RECRUTING:

-A DPS Warrior or A Ret Pally: You need to be skilled in your offspec as well. Warrior offspec is prot, Paladin offspec is negotiable but expect to switch to prot if needed.

-A Warlock. Be prepared to switch around specs as needed for buffs.

If you are one of the above classes, please check our forums and read our requirements. If you think you’ll be a good fit, post an app! Afterward, contact Stromm, Halie, or Fudax in game to talk about joining us.

 

After three weeks of random lag, disconnects, and a team member vanishing into thin air, we finally stepped into Blackwing Descent to settle the score with Nefarian once and for all. It might sound weird, but the Nefarian encounter is a super nostalgic fight, and not just because we fought him a few expansions ago!

At the end of a ton of role playing games in the SNES through Playstation era, all of the end bosses would have an ability that would take you to one hitpoint or something very low. Nefarion is no different! The crackles are like that insane, towering boss using his ability to get you to one HP and during the next few seconds you would just pray that he wouldn’t immediately use the ability that hit everyone at the same time. Some people hate those moments in games, and I understand why, but those short bursts of panic and relief are some of the most exciting moments in gaming.

Remember when you were little and you were playing your favorite game while your friend watched you? You would get to the last boss with only one life left, all of your abilities drained, and the only thing you had on your side was the desire to not see that GAME OVER screen again. The fight with the boss starts in your favor, and just when you think you have it, disaster strikes and you’re brought down to just one hit. One more hit, and it’s all over. One more hit, and your whole afternoon is ruined and you’ve let your friend down. Your friend starts shouting at you, “Kill him! Kill him!” You stand up, staring at the TV, your hands shaking and without thinking you hold whatever breath you have left as you smash the attack button one last time. Win or lose, those moments are the reason playing games are worth it.

That’s what Nefarion felt like tonight. We were all pretty much dead when he was at a few percent of his life left as the remaining people that were alive threw everything they had into the dragon. Just as he swiped our last raid member down, he finally succumbed to everything we had thrown at him.  It was close, but the cleanest kills are very rarely the ones that are the most memorable!

 

Let’s do this, hard modes!

Al’akir Down

User friendly recently kill Al’akir, it was pretty cool. We’re trying to kill Nefarian right now, but first we have to defeat the most difficult boss of all time: Canadian internet.
