The Stupidity of Human Beings is a new series of posts where I make some extremely angry remarks about playing online with fellow gamers. Be warned, I use a lot of vulgar language here… because this is the only way to expel my rage. For the inaugural post, I shall talk about World of Warcraft: Mists of Pandaria’s raid boss, Galakras (from Siege of Orgrimmar).
When Galakras lands after being shot down, he has one dangerous ability called Flames of Galakrond:
1. It is a fireball attack that travels slowly towards a targeted raid member.
2. When the ball reaches the target, it explodes dealing massive raid-wipe damage.
3. However, EVERY enemy that the ball touches before exploding, will reduce the damage of the explosion.
4. Therefore: ALL raid members need to stack in the same area, so that when the fireball is cast, it will hit everyone in a straight line, reducing the explosion damage.
You can view an explanation of the fireball mechanic in the Fatboss video guide above (10:05 mark).
“However, each player the ball goes through before it reaches its target will reduce the amount of damage it will do severely.”
To everyone in the raid fight who kept insisting that “the tank should face Galakrond away from the raid, the DPS needs to be on its tail”, I have only one thing to say to you.
FUCK OFF LAH CHAO CHEE BYE.
I fucking explained the mechanic to you in raid chat, I even fucking LINKED you the fucking description of the fucking ability in the FUCKING dungeon journal (default hotkey: Shift+J), yet you still fucking insist in being a FUCKING idiot who is going to get the raid wiped.
It absolutely pisses me off that the entire mechanics of the boss fight are already explained within the game, but these people can’t even be arsed to learn it properly. You don’t know the fight, no problem. I just explained to you how it works, and you still want to be a fucktard and have it your way? Even after we already wiped multiple times?
Don’t ever fucking join another raid EVER. Piss off and die in a fire (oh wait, YOU ALREADY DID — MULTIPLE TIMES). You all can go fuck yourselves. Good luck beating Galakras, you will NEVER, EVER win if the entire team doesn’t stack in the same spot.
