It didn’t take long to get from Thunder Bluff to the Echo Isles – Ankona took advantage of a wyvern so she could think and plan before getting to her destination. She had information to confirm with the spirits – was Gromnor dead? Was he really in the northern part of the Eastern Kingdoms, somewhere […]

So this Deathwing character…

People keep telling me they end up getting nuked by him. That he sets zones on fire and stuff.

I’ve never seen it though, on any of my characters.

I think it’s a conspiracy.

*I’m invoking Murphy’s Law on this one, figuring if I say something about it, I’ll actually get to see the event.

  1. I have seen him nuke zones twice on any character. I still have not actually managed to get toasted, though. D: Standing in the flames after-the-fact did no damage on either occasion. Sigh.

  2. The trick is not to go looking for it. Instead, laugh with an air of smug superiority at the people willing to get immolated for an Achievement as you go to Uldum and work on your Archaeology.

    Then wonder in /gchat why the sky is getting red.

  3. If it wasn’t for last night I’d be right there next to you discussing whether he’s a myth or a conspiracy. However, I got it on an alt while overlooking 15’ish other people (with a total of 30 within the relative vicinity) roleplaying in Northern Barrens. General chat was spammed with various expressions of cheerful surprise.

  4. Kayeri has been in zones with him twice, but avoided being nuked somehow… my paladin, on the other hand…

    Innocently passing through Tanaris on her way to do some mining in Uldum… yep, well, suddenly Deathwing was yelling and everything was on fire and this achievement flashed across my screen…. She’s the only one of the lot, though…

  5. Like Leaf, I was a doubting gnome until this past weekend as Spriggle flew into Gadgetzan. I was jumping in my chair gleefully watching the flames all over Tanaris (finally! Deathwing!) while Spriggle rather quickly developed full blown panic as her mount’s singed feathers made them lose enough altitude that they were overcome. She awoke to medical treatment as Gadgetzan slowly tried to recover. I thought it was AWESOME! She, not so much.

  6. I have a slightly funny story about this from last night.

    My young Feathermoonie was plodding about in Eastern Plaguelands, gathering skill farming. She had just stopped in Light’s Hope Chapel to vendor a few things, check her mail, and generally feel uncomfortable in the present of those Argent fellows that had so recently kicked the collective, Scourgey asses of her and her once-brethren, when the sky suddenly shifted and the world went red.

    Deathwing flew in from the north, impossible to miss despite that he was halfway across the zone. Partly because he was huge and horrifying. Partly because he was spewing fire at the ground, scorching everything and anything.

    Everything and anything EXCEPT Light’s Hope Chapel and the surrounding area. The gargantuan avoided it as if he were as susceptible to whatever was under that hollowed ground as the Lich King had been.

    Curious (and more than a little bit shocked), my little DK decided to venture beyond the bridge, to feel the heat of Deathwing’s fire on her face. She never got close enough to burn, but she did feel… the achievement inherent in living to see the devastation that the World Destroyer brought with him.

    (Fancy-words aside… I got the achievement without dying just by stepping close enough to the fire. I was amused. 🙂 )
