When Your Cat Kills Your Hardcore Character

Recommended Posts

There's been many stories of deaths in the Season of Mastery so far, from PvP incidents to overpulling and general carelessness, but this one is special, as cdank was betrayed by his own pet, and not the Hunter kind either!

While getting into a little trouble to begin with, with quite a few mobs and a necessary escape from the situation via Target Dummy, cdank could have still gotten away with the small error, but his cat had other plans... and there went the level 40 character with 72 hours played:

While you can't really see it clearly, the cat not only alt-tabbed, but also drank a weaker heal potion as well, pretty much dooming the poor Warrior to this fate. This is probably not the first casualty to a keyboard warrior pet, but might be the first Season of Mastery one, and in either case it's a pretty funny one!

Here's what cdank had to say about the situation:

Still can't believe this happened. 72 hours /played gone in an instant.

...
I’ve escaped worse with dummy. To be fair, I don’t disagree that I put myself in a “escape or die” situation, it was 3:30 am. The point is it was easily escapable, though I’m sensing this isn’t super apparent to everyone.
...

I should have pointed out the target dummies on my bar in the video.

Also the exit was completely clear.

Also he used the weak potion bound to Z, so I couldn't use my good one.

It might not be easy to see, but I had a very safe exit from this situation. The unfortunate timing of the cat was what turned this from a highlight to a lowlight.

(still love him btw)
...

It happens, honestly he just wanted some love, which I gave him plenty of afterwards.

      Here's another from the Season of Mastery hardcore/die=delete character files, and unlike the raids where everything has gone off without a hitch so far (with 4 bosses dead), and the unintentional real-life feline assassinations, we have an actual death to a mistake here, and a very dramatic one, as while one player did die, the rest of the group was running for their lives!
      Duran and his group were clearing UBRS with the usual 10-man raid when a pull went very wrong, which resulted in a very tense bout of run for your life - and not everyone made it out!
      Here's the details of the pull:
      So there was a poly'd mob still in the room after we kill the mobs at the beginning of the video. The tank goes to break it, but as his shot goes off it pats, while in sheep form, close enough to the far back to social aggro when the poly breaks.
      The far group comes and on their way they social another side group.
      TLDR: Sheeps move, don't break them in a bad spot, don't sheep mobs too close to other packs.

      Duranasaur  and the HC Elite guild went back into Molten Core during the weekend and pushed further in with their death = delete Season of Mastery characters and conquered two more bosses, putting them on 4/10. They're currently the only hardcore guild that's gotten any bosses down in the raid and, as you can expect, they're going at it very carefully, but are not using non-hardcore characters to "scout out" the best strategies for survival (but are checking what other guilds did via logs).
      There's much fewer melee players in the raids as expected, with Magmadar hosting a pretty impressive 9, but Garr going down to 5 with only 1 Feral, 1 Rogue and 3 Warriors. It's also very interesting to watch a boss kill while staring at the player frames and seeing every drop below 80% be a dramatic moment, so it's definitely a unique viewing experience.
      You can check out the raid logs here and now let's get on to the video:

      More progress is coming this weekend as well, and I can't wait to see how it goes!

      In his latest video, Rextroy trolls players on his naked seemingly AFK Paladin and obliterates everyone who attacks him.
      This Classic combo is built around Reckoning and Invisibility. Rextroy stacks up Reckoning on some NPCs and baits people into thinking he's AFK. He's also naked wielding just the Unstoppable Force.
      Once the enemy attacks Rextroy, he stealths and leaves the enemy confused. While most think a queue popped up and he phased out, he's loading up a swing to obliterate them. You can find the exact gear Rextroy used to execute the combo in the video description on YouTube.

      It seems the Season of Mastery hardcore community has finally decided it was time to brave the Molten Core and risk their lives, since they are running a pretty strict death=delete policy on their characters!
      Duranasaur and company dipped their foot into the lava of the Core yesterday, as they weren't quite ready to go for a full clear, only daring to face Lucifron and Gehennas! The aim wasn't to go as deep into the raid as they could, but rather to get a use out of the reset in order to get the Tome of Tranquilizing Shot and some epics from the two easiest bosses, ahead of some serious pushes into the raid after the holidays. I'm not going to spoil how it goes here but if you're wondering whether anyone died head on down to below the video.
       
      I can't wait for the post-holiday attempts and the hilarity/tragedy of the Geddon pull(s).

      Blizzard have announced that the Season of Mastery World Bosses are arriving this Thursday, so let the Benediction/Anathema farming begin! 
      World Bosses (Source)
      Heads up! The world bosses Azuregos and Lord Kazzak will begin appearing on Season of Mastery realms on Thursday, December 16 at 3:00 p.m. PST (6:00 p.m. EST)/23:00 GMT (Friday, December 17 at 0:01 CEST).
      This means the beginnings of some Season of Mastery players obtaining Benediction or Anathema, which are started by Lord Kazzak, and the Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina, which is dropped by Azuregos.
      See you in Azshara and Blasted Lands!
      ______________________________________
      et ready to put your skills to the test in WoW Classic Season of Mastery. The world raid bosses Lord Kazzak and Azuregos will arrive on December 16.
      Lord Kazzak
      Gather a group of your best trackers and fighters to venture into the Blasted Lands. Lord Kazzak resides deep in the Tainted Scar and patrols the area, ready to smite all who dare cross his path. Prepare yourselves for a fast and furious battle against time and watch out for his Shadow Bolt Volley, which causes massive amounts of raid-wide damage.
      Location: Tainted Scar—Blasted Lands
      Suggested Level: 60
      Players Suggested: 40
      Associated Quests: Priest—While players have a small chance to get the Eye of Shadow as a random drop from elite demons in the world, Lord Kazzak is guaranteed to drop it. Following the quest, The Balance of Light and Shadow to its completion will reward the weapons Benediction or Anathema. Learn more about this iconic weapon in Wowhead’s guide.
      Azuregos
      A member of the Blue Dragonflight, Azuregos makes his home in Azshara, guarding the magical artifacts left behind there. You’ll want to gather a group of comrades-at-arms to withstand his frosty reception and lay claim to the items he protects. To the victors go the spoils, and for some Hunters this means laying claim to the Ancient Sinew Wrapped Lamina. This item has a low chance to drop on elite blue dragons, but is a guaranteed item drop from Azuregos.
      Location: Azshara
      Suggested Level: 60
      Players Suggested: 40
      Season of Mastery has an accelerated content release schedule, and Phase 3 content (including Blackwing Lair and the Darkmoon Faire) is currently planned for early February. We'll have more details to share closer to that date.
      Epic new challenges await—happy hunting!
