I've read through some pages of a thread about the worst possible wipes in WoW's raids. It's really heartbreaking to see posts like "Anub'arak had 5600 hp left when we died" or "0% wipe on Kil'jaeden". Browsing through the Net, there's no thread or site where people register their closest kills, though.
So let's think positive. What's the closest kill you've ever had fighting a raid boss? On what boss did that last 0.2% tick off because a lone mage hit Iceblock just in time?
Back in TBC, my guild was progressing through Kara when WotLK scourge invasion hit (yes, we were pretty bad...).
We head to Prince Tenris Mirkblood, the extra boss in there, and start the fight.
Not much is going on, the fight itself is really easy. However, MT drops; then OT drops too. I think there was an issue with healers' mana.
Boss is at 20%. He reaps through some clothies, a dps warrior desperately tries to stop him, but in the end, I'm left alone with him; me at half hp, and he at 2400 hp or so, with no dots on.
I wanted to scream out of disbelief when my Arcane Shot made him collapse a few steps from me. I was so overjoyed with such a simple accomplishment that I passed on the Arcanite Reaper, but to this day, I have the feat of strength for the batling pet!
What about you?
