Deathwing will KILL US ALL! (Achievement Alert!)

Recommended Posts

BLUE POST REGARDING THE ACHIEVEMENT

"One of Azeroth’s oldest adversaries will soon tear through the Elemental Plane to reforge the world in flame, but this foe won’t be conducting his reign of terror from the confines of a castle or lair. Deathwing is a destructive force the likes of which adventurers have yet to see in World of Warcraft, and his appetite for devastation can only be satisfied by the shattering of the world. Following his explosive escape from Deepholm, Deathwing will cast a deadly shadow over the people of Azeroth as he wreaks indiscriminate havoc across the land.

Once free to terrorize the world, Deathwing will randomly choose territories in Azeroth to attack each day until his ruinous reign is brought to an end. A blackened sky will be the only warning before every living creature caught in his approach is consumed by his terrible fire. The unfortunate victims of his malice will receive a rare Feat of Strength... as well as a repair bill and corpse run.

When Deathwing returns, you'd best keep your eyes on the skies. "

AMG OH NOES!

But seriously, this achievment is AWESOME! I never thought I would be so excited for a repair bill! Thoughts? QQ's?

If you scroll there is another post:

"There is very little warning once he decides to strafe a zone. If you're not in the zone already, you have virtually no chance of sacrificing yourself to his flame.

If you're in the zone, you're almost definitely screwed. "

Q u o t e:

So he's doing that now or soon?

Gonna have to start hanging out in old world.. .. fishing...

Saw his in game model at BlizzCon.. He's so huge!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

His true terror reign will begin as soon as he tears out of Deepholm, resulting in the shattering of Azeroth.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q u o t e:

So does this mean he's going to strafe zones all through Cataclysm until the 4.x patch when he's killable and he's dropped on a realm sometime?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Yes, this isn't a permanent event, but will last so long as he's free to roam the world.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q u o t e:

Will Deathwing be crisping the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor only, or will the frozen wastes of Northrend feel his firey wrath?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This will be specific to the Eastern Kingdoms and Kalimdor, though he will choose his locations quite indiscriminately.

The achievement is a Feat of Strength since it won't be available forever. Given the rate at which this occurs and the random way in which he chooses to attack, virtually everyone who earns the Feat of Strength will get it by accident -- it's a wrong place at the wrong time sort of thing. ;)

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q u o t e:

If you're in the wrong place at the wrong time, do you have to be a certain level to get the achive?

I can smell the QQ already from players who can't have fun. Like, low levels thinking they should be safe from everything, and will cry during the event if they die - then later will cry as higher levels when they can no longer do the event.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deathwing doesn't care what level you are.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Q u o t e:

Will there be any zones not open to attack?

Do all zones have an equal chance of being attacked?

How best may I sacrifice myself to my lord and masters righteous flames?!

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Because his flames literally kill any creature, critter, NPC, or player in Deathwing's path, there are a few places we're not having him go for gameplay reasons. The large majority of the zones on the two continents are fair game though. :)

So, ok.

We get together this 40 man city raid, starting in, say.... badlands. Then Deathwing shows up and wrecks our shit.

Fast forward nine months. Deathwing is a raid boss. How exactly are we supposed to kill him if he can just torch all of us and insta-kill us?

No villain is infallible. His attacks on entire territories probably will cost him a lot of energy, not to mention added 'repair' to keep the metal plates keeping him together from wearing off his body.

when the raid is released, players will probably be told that they'll be attacking him during one of his periods of rest/repair, when he'd be weaker from having expended himself and thus more vulnerable.

Kind of like Onyxia when people kill her after rudely waking her up, but probably operating more like Nefarian mechanic wise... with a like-ability to blast down consuming fires that will kill anyone not equipped with a proper item.

No, killing Onyxia was done by Varian when she fucked up and kidnapped the wrong kid and pissed off the wrong king who happened to be two separate people somehow.

Actually, they didn't really do this with Wrath against the lore characters who were truly powerful at all. So I doubt they'll do this with Cataclysm.

Pre-3.1:

Naxxramas: Argent Dawn are credited for the fall of Naxxramas (For the most part) the first time, and the 'adventurers' are credited for it this time. Reason? Kel'Thuzad, while powerful, is nowhere near the level of strength of the 'leader' type enemies.

Sartharion: See above

Malygos: Here is where it begins. It's pretty evident that Malygos could have just slaughtered us if he wanted to (Beginning of Phase 3.) It's because of Alexstrasza and her dragons that we win.

3.1:

Ulduar: I'm going to go out on a limb and suggest that once the "official" lore is written for how Yogg-Saron is "killed" it's going to be that the Watchers (I'm going to guess that they're gonna write it with all 4 being up during the fight) were the real reason that the heroes had any chance for defeating Yogg-Saron

3.2:

Same as Naxx/Sartharion. Anub'arak is powerful, but he isn't anywhere close to the strength of the 'leader' type bosses.

3.3:

Arthas makes it quite clear he could slaughter the entire raid in the blink of an eye. Which he does. He is defeated because Tirion shatters the Frostmourne. Honestly, the players probably did little to nothing in terms of the lore impact of the fight.

This leads me to believe, in addition to Metzen stating that ALL of the Dragonflights will be involved in Deathwing's fight in some fway (As well as Thrall), that the majority of the fight will be the players harnessing their allies' power to defeat Deathwing, and would have been hopeless in their fight had they been alone.

Oh god.. I will just hang around in pornshire after cata until Deathwing gets Elwynn. I can't wait to see a shitload of ERPers die. All I gotta do is turn chat off and wait for it!

On Moon Guard, I mean. TN's Goldshire isn't very populated.

All I can say is THANK GOD we don't have to deal with another Lich King type Villian who shows up 7-8 times and then SPARES you after you ruin his plans again and again. Deathwing don't got time to deal with your shit :D

Lol this will be funny as shit, but not fun like the whole zombie apocalypse thing and being able to work with the opposite faction to take down a capitol city of orde or allaince, I miss being able to talk with the allaince via zombie language, but I do think this is gonna be for some great laughs on vent, like when a mage plays portal roulette and you got the one guy saying "I swear to god if I get stonard I'm gonna fucking kill you" 10 seconds later all you hear in vent is same guy screaming in his mic "FUCKING STONARD!!!!" and everyone else laughing their asses off untill their completely out of breath.

That'd be funny. City raid is attacking Stormwind 40 v 40, and Deathwing comes to play. I can hear the QQ, and bust-a-lung laughing now.

Oh lord. If he actually strafed cities and ruined peoples auctions and banking, there'd be SO MUCH QQ.

If he did it while we had a raid attacking Stormwind, I would fall to my knees, shake my fist at the sky and scream "CURSE YOU DEATHWIIING!"

And then burst into flames.

That would be AWESOME if he hit cities, but while people like ME would enjoy it, the QQ levels from people who take video games too seriously would drown out the laughter by scrubs like me who are much worse but actually enjoy myself while playing.

I wonder if SW will REALLY get hit or show the remains of his landing. Hmmmm

I'd just like to see how some people will pick up from rping that. o_o Carry-on and pretend it didnt happen? RP that you ran like hell and somehow still made it for cover? BUILDING FELL DOWN AND YOUR STUCK BENEATH THE BURNING RUBBLE!??!

Lots of ways.. Just.. interesting to see how that would pan out. xD

'Cup of tea?'

"Oh dear me yes! I am parched!"

'I say, it was sunny just a moment ago, what happened to the sun? How many sugars dear friend?'

"Two please.. though I must point out that there doth appear to be a dragon in the sky."

*People screaming, the world around them is burning, but in their pocket, nothing is touched.*

'Oh-ho! Look! It rained fire! How splendid!'

"Very splendid indeed! Now my tea is warm again! Cheers!"

'Cheers!'

I'd like to think the escape route, like OH SHIT and you made it out lucky sort of thing.

That scenario you just played out, will be mostly avoided because Silvermoon wont be touched!
