    Trolled hardcore by Elegon in LFR

    So yesterday in LFR this happened in the last phase at 30%..

    Apparently it was time for Focus Power. Orbs came out, hit the pillars and floor actually disappears and kills us all. Anyone seen this happen before? Absolutely no way to survive if he decides to do this.. I tried to bolt for the edge anyway but not happening with 4 fps >.>

    *blink* So wait... you pushed him to phase 3... before there had been 2 rounds of focus power or...?

    I'm trying to get this, was it a bug where there was a random 3rd phase 2?

    Or did the dps push the boss so hard that he decided it was time for the 3rd phase and just cast focus power over it anyway...?

    Haha, that is amazing. A serious lack of programming from Blizzard there ...

    Essentially, what you've done is push to many phases to occur at the same time. Nothing you could've done, as the beam around the edge would've killed you unless you had good healers and cooldowns popped.

    Hasn't happened to me as I haven't done MSV LFR in many many weeks, but yes, weird things happen with high DPS on Elegon LFR. Some of my guildies would purposely go in there as a group to intentionally try to break the fight, as the typical LFR has more of a spread in skill/DPS level so it happens less often.

    This was an extra third spark phase. Last phase started normally, energy cascade and everything looked fine until 30% when he started casting. Raid dps was pretty bad as well- notably a few dummies dove into the pit, someone lusted on the pull AND no one killed the sparks at the back so we didn't actually kill any spark waves which is the only factor I can think of that could have caused it.

    Yeah, he is not programmed too well.
    We had the 2nd p1 and p2 occur at the same time the other week on heroic 10man.
    He was 1) spawning protectors, 2) breathing, 3) spawning the orbs.
    We managed to kill 2 waves of orbs with the protectors and having to tank the boss.
    However, when an orb hit and the walls were raised, when we ran out he did his aoe deathgrip thing and pulled us all back in lol.
    I think it was because we pushed him to 50% before he started p1 back up again.

    Had this a few weeks back in lfr on an alt. The raid dps was so high that elegon pulled the whole raid into him when everyone was outside with the pillars.

    How do you survive anything running at 4fps?

    Lovely coding on Elegon there, also like to note the chat log in the third screenshot. Sums up LFR quite nicely.

    My old computer would get 2-4 FPS on Elegon 25 and Sha of Anger. 30+ on everything else. Luckily I do 10 man normal, not 25, so it was only ever an issue on LFR Elegon and Sha of Anger, both of which are too easy to matter.

    I posted a strange behavior of Elegon long ago :

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post18786996

    First Orb phase, 9 stacks, health below 50%. He started his second Orb phase while the pillars were popping, resulting a pillar bug and endless adds with immune boss...


    Edit : for low FPS, turn off Recount
