Hardest World of Warcraft Boss, With Exactly 1 HP Left, Wipes Raid

Even after nerfing him, with 464 million hit points and an extra third phase, Hellfire Citadel's final boss Archimonde on Mythic difficulty remains a tough challenge for guilds. And sometimes it creates truly unlucky moments, like this attempt from a German guild.

They were really close to killing Archimonde but ended up dead against a boss with only 1 HP left. Ouch. With everyone in the raid doing thousands of DPS, this is just not right.

The video is in German, but you can hear the moment when they think they killed him, but actually didn't. And it's a custom UI so the red HP bar you're looking for is in the middle bottom part.

The game's mechanics prevent bosses dying during certain casts, and as you can see Archimonde starts casting Seething Corruption basically at the same time when the killing blow should happen. If they'd been a tiny bit faster they could have succeeded.

It's a happy ending though. Instead of uninstalling the game, cancelling their subscriptions, disbanding the guild and deleting their characters, they killed the boss later that day.

    Eff that shit. This is one reason for giving up on the old world of warcraft. Too much time to be invested and too little free time on my hands. Cudos to the raid though for finally beating him now what have they left to do?

    I've benefited from that kind of mechanic before, killing a boss and surviving on a smidgen of health. Of course, in Bloodborne the Blood-Starved Beast had to reach out and kill me from beyond the grave, right when I was doing my victory dance... :-(

    A wipe video, with nobody screaming about positioning or a 50 DKP minus?

    Boo! Zero stars.

    Despite the intentionally transparent nature of this sentence, I feel like most won't take the point to heart.

    "Vas" (sp. was) is german for "what", if you didn't know.
    "Oh my fucking Gott" on the other hand, I have no idea what that could mean.
