World First Classic 3-man Onyxia Kill

Recommended Posts


Onyxia has been bullied quite a bit recently, with 33 druids killing her, 33 hunters taking under a minute to down her, even naked raids taking her down, but it's time for another humiliation for one of WoW's oldest bosses.

Draven, Wuggreed and Starly from the guild Midnight took it upon themselves to undertake this feat a little earlier than Vanilla WoW, where the dragon was taken down by a triad only after Naxxramas (and its gear) came out. It's important to once more note that Classic is significantly different from Vanilla, and can't really be com pared directly. It took them 46 minutes to remove Onyxia's head as well as solid amount of consumables (around 260 gold for all three players combined), but it was well worth it! Congrats to them!

Here's the video description for more details:


After weeks of planing, preparations and test runs the characters Draven, Wuggreed and Starly (Server Gandling, Guild Midnight) was finally able to do the world first 3 man Onyxia. Recreating the 3 man Onyxia kill from Vanilla several months early without the Nax/Aq gear. Fight lasted 46 Min. (Also world record for slowest Onyxia?!)

Notable consumes used: (So not including the normal ones like moongose or Spirit of Zanza) Draven: Crystal Spire x 5 (from gives a thorns buff from un'goro crater) Greater stoneshield potion x5 Goblin sapper charges x4 (Special gear Glimmering Mithril Insignia x Thunderfury and FR gear)
Wuggreed: Major Mana Potion x 11 Demonic Rune x 8 (Special gear none)
Starly: Crystal Charge x6 (Like a budget sapper charge for none engineers. 400-500 aoe dmg) Major Mana Potion x4 And 5 "small ones", must be poor or something. (Special gear Arcane Infused Gem and FR gear)

Special thanks to: Poskulis Torch Jones/Niva Carly


And here's some additional info from the reddit thread:


On gold spent:

The paladin spent around 100g on runes and 40g on mayor mana potion.

I spent maby 100g on sappers/gffp/giants/armorpotions.

Hunter 20g mana potions. And then some mana oil and moonguse for many 20 more gold?

Not counting the ungoro crater crafts sence those can't reliabley buy the mats on ah.


Skullflame shield swapping on breath:

3 reasons.

  1. From time to time the FR aura bugs of so I lose 60 FR

  2. 315 is only a soft cap. You can have more but the return from 315-330 is less then 300-315.

  3. It looks cooler


On Sunder Armor refresh every 5 seconds:

Going to post this coment someone said on YouTube.

"Sunder can proc Thunderfury so it's not useless damage-wise, and he's already pretty rage starved throughout the fight and wants to be using BT on cooldown. HS is a huge rage-dump, so Sunder is going to be better threat generation when not dual wielding. He absolutely doesn't want to risk losing agro due to a wing buffet, so having max possible threat output is preferable. Also it really doesn't matter much, so it's a lot easier to just spam sunder and worry about positioning and stance dancing the fears when you're in a pressure situation like that."

I am in no way an optimal player, reason I got TF is bcs i try my best and raid lead. There are ofc ways I can still improve


Is 2 man possible?

Well, if u have 100 Mana potions and 100 hours on your hands. In theory yes

      Blizzard have stated that the BC Classic beta is coming soon, but didn't specify when exactly. Today the Battle.net launcher's app catalog was updated with the TBC Internal Alpha, visible only to Blizzard but datamineable nonetheless!
      Right at the bottom there, the Internal Alpha most likely won't last too long and many have speculated that the beta won't be too long either, as there aren't as many issues to be dealt with as there were for Vanilla Classic. The release date is up in the air but hopefully Blizzard won't put it too close to patch 9.1, as many players will want to play both.
      In any case all we can do now is make sure we've opted-in to the beta (here) and wait!

      The level 58 boost option that is offered with the arrival of  Burning Crusade Classic has caused quite a bit of controversy and Blizzard have now tried to clarify the details on it a little, clarifying that the boosts will only be available on the new BC realms, while the Classic Era realms (where characters will stay if they don't transfer to the new BC  realms) will not have the boost available.
      Boost (source)
      I think it might be helpful to note that what we’re now calling WoW Classic Era realms start at Level 1, and we feel the same as we did two years ago: no Boost would ever be needed (or appropriate) there. When we originally laid out our principles for WoW Classic, the 1-60 experience was the only thing to which we could refer.
      Burning Crusade Classic begins at level 58, and we’re configuring this new Boost service to avoid minimizing the accomplishments of existing players or skipping any new content at launch. It’s for players who want a way to quickly join their friends in Outland.

      While BlizzConline may be done, the interviews sure aren't, and we got a lot of new info on the Burning Crusade Classic from MrGM's interview with John Hight and Brian Birmingham!
      The biggest takeway from the interview is the fact that BC Classsic will work in the newest Shadowlands client, meaning we may get new graphical options like Ray Tracing and other goodies!  Raid attunements will mostly work as they did, but there will also be improvements, like everyone getting attuned instead of 1 person, and possibly non-current raids no longer requiring attunement at all.  The release Phases themselves aren't 100% set in stone, there's still room to tweak them depending on community feedback. Fresh Classic servers (meaning starting at Phase 1 of Vanilla) may happen, but not until after launch. They did not mention fresh BC Classic servers, however (meaning new servers that you can start on when BC launches). Leatherworking Drums will be changed/nerfed as they feel too powerful and mandatory. The fact that the whole expansion is based on the final patch, 2.4.3 was reiterated, and it was chosen because they felt that was the best balance the expansion had. We hope it won't have similar adverse effects they way Vanilla Classic's class tuning did. The XP curve will also be as it was in 2.4.3. There will be other quality of life improvements that came either with the final patch or even beyond it, like mounts at level 30. Collector's Edition items from the original Burning Crusade will be given to accounts that have it in Classic as well. And here's the full interview, very helpfully marked with each question in the video timeline/progress bar!

      The Burning Crusade Classic will follow the same route Vanilla Classic did but with a twist, with a lot of the game being based off of the expansion's final patch.
      As talked about in many in panels and interviews, the approach to BC Classic is different than Vanilla Classic, with a new motto to replace "no changes". "Some changes" means that class balance will be based on patch 2.4.3 of BC, but the rest of the game's features might not. The developers talked about quality of life improvement changes from the final patch and beyond, but not everything will be taken from it - attunements will still be needed for current phase content for example, as well as both Paladin seals being availabe to both factions. The XP curve will also use the final patch changes instead of the BC start values.
      Luckily, the raid bosses themselves will actually be in their pre-nerf states (although we're unsure to what degree, as some were potentially impossible), so the difficulty should be significantly greater than in Vanilla Classic, where everything was much easier than the original, with more powerful classes due to the final patch tuning and some extremely nerfed bosses. 
      So the approach and "some changes" mantra seems like a good one, as each improvement/change is individually vetted and then added to the game if it fits and is a quality of life improvement. Not all details are clear yet as Blizzard are still deciding on what goes in and what doesn't.

      In case you missed it in the giant pile of news coming out of BlizzConline, there's already a beta opt-in for the Burning Crusade Classic and you don't want to miss it! You can head on over to the game's page and scroll on down to the bottom to click the opt-in button.

      Blizzard also mentioned there will not be a gold cap for charaters transfering from current Classic onto BC Classic realms in a interview with Blizzard Watch.
      And in case you were still fuzzy on some of the key issues, here's the official FAQ:
      FAQ (source)
      Do I need to purchase Burning Crusade Classic to play it? No. Access to Burning Crusade Classic is included in and available to all players with an active World of Warcraft subscription—no additional purchase required.
      Will I be able to level up blood elf or draenei characters in advance? Yes. Sometime before Burning Crusade Classic is released, the game client will be updated, and players who wish to level up a blood elf and draenei character up to level 60 can do so without restrictions.
      I have never played WoW Classic but I'm interested in Burning Crusade Classic. How can I join my friends? If you don’t have characters ready for the journey beyond the Dark Portal and are interested in adventuring in Outland with your friends, we will offer an optional Level-58 Character Boost service closer to the launch of Burning Crusade Classic. 
      This boost will not be usable on Classic Era realms or on the new blood elf or draenei races; in addition, players will be limited to boosting only one character per World of Warcraft account. Further details, including details around pricing and availability, will be announced at a later date.
      Will Burning Crusade Classic support value-added services like Character Transfers?   Yes. Like in WoW Classic before it, Burning Crusade Classic will offer the Character Transfer service. We have no plans at this time to offer new services, but keep an eye on https://worldofwarcraft.com/news for future updates.   What will happen to my character if I choose to transfer it to an Era realm?   Characters transferred to an Era realm will not be able to progress past the Shadows of the Necropolis content update. They will not be able to level up past level 60, go to Outland, play as Blood elves or Draenei, or otherwise access any features available to players on Burning Crusade Classic Progression realms.   Can I transfer my character from a Progression Realm to an Era realm? No. Once the decision is made to leave a character on a Progression realm, you can no longer bring that character back to an Era realm. Choose wisely!
      Can I keep my character in an Era realm and a Progression realm at the same time?   Yes. We’re introducing a new character ‘clone’ service. You may purchase this service only once per WoW character. Once you do, that hero will be allowed to venture forth into Burning Crusade Classic while their copy continues their original adventure on a Classic Era realm. Please note that it is not possible to unlock a single WoW Classic character across multiple Era realms in this way.
