Rextroy Solos Taloc Normal

Recommended Posts

egyjSTp.jpg
 

Rextroy decided to lower the number of Protection Paladins facing Taloc by 19 (and accordingly reduce the difficulty), getting the solo World First on the boss. As usual, he employed a trick/cheese, this time involving simultaneously getting the boss to berserk and phase transition, making the final 35% possible/trivial. He also reported the method he used and tried to re-do the kill to see if a hotfix was implemented, and even though he's not 100% sure, he couldn't quite get it done again, so he went ahead and posted the video.

Since we're on the topic, you can check out our interview with him before his ban was overturned where he goes into detail about what constitutes an exploit vs. creative use of game mechanics, as well as the original ban post where there's a lot of discussion by the community on the issue.

 

Quote

When the Taloc training dummy meme goes full circle. The hardest part was (obviously) the first 12 minute of the fight to last until his Berserk. But also bringing enough DPS to get him to 35% HP before berserk kicks in

Why is he just standing there?
So the strat for this cheesy solo is that you bring the boss a bit above 7973k HP (about 36%) just before Berserk. This causes him to start the transition into p2… However if he goes Berserk during the ”transition” moment he will stop the transition and start attacking you!...

Unless you time is so well that you get him into berserk the moment he lies down on the ground when he goes into ”standby”… This causes him both to interrupt the transition to phase 2, but also he will be unable to continue meele hitting. Since gameplay wise, he is suppose to stop attacking until the end of the lift phase. But since he is never able to go into p2, he is stuck in this helpless mode.

It has to be timed really well however, since he will quickly get the buff ”Powered Down” and that marks the beginning of p2. Even if he is in Berserk, he is harmless. Since his abilities on normal aren’t scaling with it, only his meele attacks and Retrieve Crudgel! So he ends up just standing there and not doing much... An easy prey!

Interesting parts:
Berserk 8:00
Kill 12:25

Btw for anyone wondering, I have started streaming recently... So feel free to check it out ? https://www.twitch.tv/rextroy
 

As usual, I had this bug reported before uploading! If it been fixed or not... I tried a few times to time the berserk but he kept hitting me, so assumed it been fixed (or I had a really lucky timing when I recorded this...) Either way it shouldn't be an issue on Mythic since he got both Enlarged Heart and Hardened Arteries that he (assumedly) keeps using during berserk and "p2", which would most likely one shot the whole raid.

Its normal difficulty, probably a fury or arms warrior could tank this boss :-D. But to be said: To solo this boss you need selfhealing as tank. Probably DK and DH could do this as well. But even then, it has to be properly executed, gz to Rextroy 🙂

Only if they have like 500% leech as fury or 100% parryuptime.... this wont be the case without any kind of third party program / hack. And i didnt mentioned nhc or hc or mythic, because you wont have big issues at this boss with prot warrior.

I meant it should be possible to tank this boss in normal difficulty as Fury or Arms with healers in your back, not to do it solo 😄 . I can't tell about mythic difficulty, but i do agree, it's not a big deal to tank it as prot warrior on normal and heroic. And while many guilds have 2/8 mythic without 8/8 heroic, it should't be a thing an mythic as well.

why is this guy not banned yet? he does not work for blizzard, therefore he has absolutely no right to go through the game purposefully looking for exploits. exploiting the game is exploiting the game. period. any one of us would be perma-banned immediately if we did stuff like this. it doesnt matter if he is reporting the exploit; he is still taking advantage of the exploit and using the exploit for his own personal gain, and actually MAKING MONEY by doing so. this kind of horse shit really sets me off. the rest of us have to follow the rules, but this asshole doesnt?

What harm does this do?  You understand he reports the issue to Blizzard and waits for them to hotfix it, right?

No one is going to imitate this because there is no benefit to anyone in it, it's just a bit of news / trivial entertainment.

that is flat out ignorance. he encourages his youtube followers to recreate the same scenarios. go to this video on youtube and read his first comment; a few lines down he is encouraging someone to do the same exploit. that is beyond proof that he is doing this with the intent of helping others exploit the game. 

just because your mush brain cant understand "what harm" this type of behavior does to online gaming communities doesnt negate the fact, it simply exemplifies your ignorance and stupidity.

Dude, you really need to smoke some weed or something and chill out.

Sure, it's exploits that he's exposing. But because he's showing them they're actually fixing them. Maybe Blizzard should make less mistakes. And it's all for content that is FAR from progression at this point, so in a way who cares that he gets outdated stuff? Things like Games Done Quick, and other speed runs, that use exploits (i-frames, cut scene skips, etc) are from these same "harmful communities" and all they've done is raised over 16 million dollars for charities and support numerous gamers financially so they can enjoy doing what they're doing.

Mate here's the piece of advice - do not take the guy who named himself "Demonpuke" seriously. I don't))

This is an article on him soloing Taloc on NORMAL difficulty.  Explain the harm in it. 

The ignorance and stupidity I leave to your overtaxed mush brain.

      We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
      Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
      The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

      Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
      Blizzard (Source)
      It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
      Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
      Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
      The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
      When: October 18–November 1
      Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
      All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
      It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
      Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
      This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
      Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
      Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
      There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

      Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
      Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
      Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

      Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
      Blizzard (Source)
      Hello!
      Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
      Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
      Dungeons and Raids
      Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
      Thank you very much!
