Killing Bosses While Everyone's Dead Is All the Rage These Days

Recommended Posts

It seems there's a new way of doing things in Castle Nathria, as it's no longer cool to just kill a boss, you have to be as absolutely crazy close to also wiping as possible, to the point of everyone in the raid being dead as you win.

What we actually have are two pretty funny examples of the closest wins possible (and a third that's not as close), as the entire raid lies dead as the boss is still alive and kicking, but they still win in the end. We start with the big guy himself, Sire Denathrius, and this actually beats our current "closest Denathrius kill ever" as well!

Then it's on to Mr. Tokyo Drift himself, Sludgefist, and we're not quite sure what happened there, as he lost a pretty solid 0.4% chunk of health after the all-dead section (possibly a Necrolord with the post-death 10 second activity Soulbind or just a lot of DoTs):

And finally we have another Denathrius kill, this time with some players still alive, but with literally the entire room being filled by the, uh, blood gunk? The pizza thing? In any case, Desolation Desolation covers the entire room:

Was it sarcasm? I mean the video title is "ez venthyr" and General Draven's Stonehusk did the last blow to the boss :D. Even i do not raid mythic yet, i had several of those moments my self with my BDK on Venthyr with General Draven as soulbind. Same situation this week on Sludgefist HC, healer and me were the last, healer dead, then me and Draven did the last blow. (for about 47k )

Okay, then interaction here brings even more wisdom! 😄

Since my last comment i had this experience also on Tarvold within Sanguine Depth's. Healer ran panically around being the last one alive and then Daddy Draven managed to blow away Tarvold saving us the mass rezz! 😄

      A player in World of Warcraft tried out how many times they could fit the word "Silvermoon" into everything game-related and the result is pretty amazing.
      Heavily inspired by the Revolver Ocelot meme, we present you Sílvermoon of Silvermoon member of the Silvermoon guild located on the Silvermoon server in Silvermoon City!


      Now let us break things down a bit to make this less confusing:
      The character's name is Sílvermoon. They obtained the "of Silvermoon" title from Exalted Champion of Silvermoon City. The player plays on a server named Silvermoon and is a member of the Silvermoon guild. The player is located in Silvermoon City.
      Next, Sílvermoon summoned a companion who also happens to be called Silvermoon.

      And to conclude everything on an epic note, Silvermoon (the companion) received a silver moon mark above its head...

      On May 6, we reported about the world first player who earned level 99 in the first Diablo 2 Resurrected Ladder Season 1. Now, another player achieved the same feat but on Hardcore. Congratulations to EazyE!
      While the video isn't available on Twitch yet, we have a snapshot from the leaderboard confirming the world first.

      Many portions of Torghast are located on a single big map separated from each other. In the game, you'll get generated floors out of these pieces.

      Blizzard have decided to scrap the initially planned button that would re-configure the pillars inside the Enigma Arena, and it will launch as it it right now on the 9.2.5 PTR, with a static configuration. 
      Engima Arena (Source)
      As we previously mentioned, our initial intention was to release the Enigma Crucible with a unique mechanic, a central button that allowed players to manipulate the pillar configuration throughout a match. During implementation, we found some concerns like pathing and line-of-sight issues that could have sporadically affected players and some of their class abilities. So to provide the best play experience and avoid potential frustrations, we have decided to go forward with the version that is currently available on the 9.2.5 PTR which has a single pillar configuration that remains locked throughout the match. We do not plan to pursue the initial version at this time.
      Thank you for your understanding and we’ll see you in the Arena.

      We're checking back in with Mythic+ and have a fresh old face back in the top 3, with two of the classic M+ specs setting up shop at the very top, and Destruction having a look in as well.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      These past 2 weeks were:

      Fortified, Spiteful, Necrotic
      Tyrannical, Inspiring, Quaking (and Encrypted)
      All Keys
      95th percentile
      While the very top remains the same as it's been for a LONG time, with Subtlety reigning over everyone, we see a big shift in No.2 with Fire returning to the top after a long absence, pushing Destruction out of the way. Survival drops 2 spots as the AoE nerf takes effect, while Windwalkers remain steady in 5th. The numbers drop off quite a bit after the top 5, and we see Frost Mage and Demonology switch spots, as well as Fury and Havoc rise up together and push Marksmanship down into the final top 10 slot. The bottom remains pretty much identical, with Rogues, Druids and Shamans clustering up together for warmth.

      All Percentiles
      Interestingly enough, Fire is actually doing worse than last time we checked in the generalist bracket, as it drops 1 spot down to 4, with Destruction taking its place in the top 3, as Subtlety and Survival stay on top. Windwalker moves up two and claims the final top 5 spot, pushing Marksmanship and Demonology down one, while the tail end of the top 10 remains the same.
      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      +15 Keys
      Old faithful, the +15 bracket is as solid as a rock and just as interesting, as you'd need a microscope to see the differences here. Within these microscopic changes, we see Survival remain on top as Windwalker takes 2nd from Subtlety, and Arcane actually moves up quite a bit and slips into the top 10.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      +20 Keys
      Windwalkers are making some moves in the high keys, as they take 2nd from Destruction and knock Subtlety down to 4th. Fury is moving up for a change, after a long period of stagnation all over, taking 7th and replacing Demo, while Enhancement and Assassination make some serious moves up, as they round out the top 10 four spots higher than last time we checked.
