It is about time another raid boss got one shot!
This is probably one of the most broken bugs I have discovered, at least recently...
It is a bug with Fame Insaziabile
, the Venthyr legendary for Death Knights
This legendary makes your Nebbia Sciamante
explode at the end for damage that depends on how much runic power you spent while it was active.
A thing I discovered after playing around with it is that if you remove the legendary before Swarming Mist expires, the explosion never happens, but you will keep the damage buff on the ability. This means you can stack up the damage, and delay the explosion until you want it to go off!
I wanted to do it against a raid boss, but it would take a very long time to stack it up (8-10 hours) even if I used benefits such as the Calice Traboccante
I ultimately decided to go for it, and went into Proving Grounds since it is the perfect location where I can be alone so no one interferes. I can also reset all my cooldowns on demand, which speeds up the process considerably!
I had a specific haste set to stack it up as efficiently as possible against the bronze DPS challenge. The time I stacked was about 5-6 hours total. It was quite horrifying since a single mistake of being being too slow to unequip the legendary, or server lag, or random stuck in combat bug, would make it explode and all progress would be lost!
I had some additional DMG modifiers such as Fatal Flaw that I played around with, but ultimately I didn't need them since the DMG was 25% overkill.
I had some friends join me to help with the trash mobs! I also had them battle the boss, just in case I needed the additional DMG boost from DH 5% magic debuff, or Benedizione dell'Estate
If you wonder if it was soloable? It definitely was, I could use a cancelaura macro to make it explode instantly, like I did against my friend CarlosMatos in a duel!
Important note: The bug is fixed, I reported it right after one-shotting the boss and it was solved surprisingly fast
Special thanks to everyone for helping me out!
Oh and btw, don't mind my friend Panic saying he want to abuse it for glad, he was definitely joking and is a real honorable guy!... I think
