All the MMO's these days are just too easy. They are all soloable. Raids are tiny. Raids are easy. The game can really be easily understood by a 5 year old. Of course, it amazes me how dificult is is for most people that play the games, and how terrible people are at following directions, even on the simplest of things such as... don't stand in the mob when it is AE'ing. The games even went as far as making it just as simple as stepping away... and half the mobs even give a warning that they are going to do an AE.
It takes me back to one raid in EQ... Simon Says..
With how well (or terrible rather) these idiots play today, I just cannot imagine any guilds ever getting by this quest. I know if any of these people I have seen on WoW, AoC, Rift and SWTOR that cannot follow simple instructions were in my guild at the time, they would have been removed from the guild after one error from something so simple..
I know you will more than likely not read this, but if you are bored and want to see what a pretty challenging raid at the time looked like this is one. I miss these days. Even if you do not read, look at how long the strategy is for just 1 Boss... a short 15 minute fight or so.
So here is the raid... who thinks these WoW and their clone noobs could ever do something like this.
Room Emotes: Everybody in raid sees these at the same time. If you do not make it on time... 5k base Dmg. (Figure at this point in time people have between 7-12k Hp Max... 12k being tanks and that was a very well geared tank)
The room begins to heat up dramatically. The north side looks safe.
The room begins to heat up dramatically. The center looks safe.
The room begins to heat up dramatically. The south side looks safe.
The room begins to heat up dramatically. The east side looks safe.
They are pretty self explanatory but I am sure it would be too dificult for many to understand as now nobody uses directions they use left right straight and down.. because they are too dumb.
Kyv Emotes: Individual Emotes 7,500 Dmg Each (Occur more frequently over time and per death)
From the corner of your eye, you notice a Kyv taking aim at your position. You should move.
(Move around... keep in mind you still have to do the raid itself and follow the room emotes)
From the corner of your eye, you notice a Kyv taking aim near your position. He appears to be leading the target, anticipating your next movement. You should stand still.
(Stand still... of course this sucks if you also have to move around and/or go to a specific area in the room) I would guess most idiots nowadays would not figure that well this does 7,500 dmg, the room emote does 5,000... which 1 do you think is more important to dodge
From the corner of your eye, you notice a Kyv taking aim at your head. You should duck.
This one is not so bad because you could duck and move...
At the start the emotes were minimal by the end of the raid you could have 10-20 emotes in a matter of seconds if your going to wipe because people keep dying. Probably about 5-10 if your doing well.
The Dragorn before you is developing an anti-magic aura.
Do not cast spells on the mob
You notice that the Dragorn before you is preparing to cast a devastating close-range spell.
Move out of melee range...(5k Dmg)
You notice that the Dragorn before you is preparing to cast a devastaing spell. Doing enough damage to him might interupt the process.
Obviously... full dps.
A haze of unnatural steam billows near your feet. You should find higher ground.
Run to center stage or higher ground all around the room.
The Dragorn before you is sprouting sharp spikes.
No melee dmg this is a Damage shield... major damage... Few hits on the mob and you will kill yourself.
The Weapon in your right hand begins to heat up dramatically. You should remove it.
Remove your primary weapon or take Dmg.
There was also an emote to remove your rings, but most people do not keep their rings on for this fight due to this. But if you were to keep them on, obviously when you get message take them off.
And finally, while doing all of this you are killing 6 mobs that are spawned circular around the room.
Kill all 6 and you win.
