i got destroyers end you silly mop babbys!
FoK spamming also won the fight (before they nerfed FoK).
##V (The action of pounding the left portion of you chest twice with your right hand,and then flashing the peace sign with the same hand in order to express exuberation.)
Anub'arak, we barely knew thee.
My weekly podcast can be downloaded here this week world cup soccer!
50 attempts, no deaths. We got to Anub'arak and a raid member was messing around and being stupid (Could tell on Vent they weren't taking it serious) so we killed it at 50 attempts 1 death, that one player cost us the achievement. We never bothered to get it again because it wasn't exactly that important. From personal experience doing it when the content was relevant? It wasn't hard at all, it was a cakewalk.
Anub'arak himself though? I loved the unit in W3, his voice was pretty badass and I thought the same of it in Wrath when they introduced him.

hahhaha wrath babies talking about MoP kids!. Calling MoP crappy while bringing up WotLK. People never cease to amaze me. LOL!
the problem wasn't that anub'arak was particularly hard to kill once everyone started getting the gear from ToC or even once everyone became decked out in ICC gear.
the problem was that you had ONE shot to not die per week.
the pvp bosses could easily straight out kill someone, and with leeching swarm draining 30% of someone's health every second healers just had to floor it without flooring it to keep everyone alive.
so all in all there's a reason not a lot of people are riding around on their ponies even though they beat LK 25 HC, it is because that achievement was HARD.
The raids in TBC were a pain and all the WotLK fights (minus the exceptions) were a lot easier. If you want the proof, check all the world first kills. I remember that the Black Temple went live when the last tier of raids wasn't even cleared. Nobody could even ENTER the new raid because nobody DEFEATED the previous tier of raids. When you compare that to WotLK (which had every raid cleared with ease on normal mode and took them some time to clear the HC), TBC was a lot more complex and harder. You couldn't just farm badges and hop into the last tier of raiding. Not to mention the 5man HC's back in TBC, where people with full raiding gear had a hard time clearing those places.
I. Like. To. Kill. Things.
Spiders are creepy. Next time try and leave out your rampant hate and just keep it as a tribute. I felt your tirade about dailies detracted from your main point.
Eh, firstly I do quite enjoy MoP, your post got a big negative from me because you opened it with being a douchebag. Praising WotLK, the expansion I feel was by far the worst, didn't help either.
Secondly, Anub'arak was amazing in Warcraft III, but WotLK cornified him. He lost all credibility as the once wise and mighty traitor king he was and became a very generic underling for The Lich King, both his voice and his lines were taken straight out of a 60s Batman show. "Your armor is useless against my locust!" See what I mean? His fight in Azjol-Nerub was nothing short of annoying and repetive, and his fight in ToC was okay, the chasing impale was cool, but other than that it was a very forgettable fight.
1 out of 3 amazing characters they butchered in WotLK, the others being The Lich King and Kel'thuzad. Sorry, but I'd rather forget him.

I too enjoyed the character Anub'arak from wc3. He was a bigass brute who betrayed his kingdom...what's not to like?
Then they made him a faceroll 5 man boss, and his subject, Anub'rekhan, was a raid boss. Then they brought him back for one of the laziest tiers of the game. Also it was only the second tier in the game which even had real hardmodes, so you saying it was one of the hardest hms at the time doesn't mean all that much.
"Mists of Dailies" bosses may not all have the physical history to the player of having been in Warcraft 3, but some of them are definitely harder than Anub, and are definitely more interesting fights.
How can a thread dedicated to Anub'arak not have the most important quote from him?
>8< Spider Pride! >8<
Anub'arak was amazing in WC3. A great, strong and wise leader of his people. Its sad to see that he was merely a 5-man boss, and than a raid boss in a raid that just didn't fit him.
Blizzard probably wanted Anub'arak to be the final boss in the Azjol-Nerub raid, because they orignally wanted to turn the place into a large raid. But since it got scrapped, they still had to use Anub'arak somewhere, and only ToC was left for him.
Kel'Thuzad deserved a far bigger role aswell. Amazing in WC3, a shadow in WoW. If Blizzard will ever make a WC4, I hope they bring back these characters to progress the lore after WC3: TFT further on.
I'd trade any current major WoW figure for you, a thousand times
