The Original Onyxia Wipe Animation
This is an animation I made back in April 2006 about an unsuccessful, but yet disturbingly hilarious, attempt to defeat the dragon Onyxia from World of Warcraft.

The audio was created by "Dives" from the guild Wipe Club, I had nothing to do with its creation, I only made the animation.

Note: This was made pre-BC. That's right, the level cap was still 60, so you couldn't solo her back then.

PS: Cheers to the guys from "Wipe Club" (link not available) for making the sound clip!

Check out this animation made by MadSeasonShow of Wipe Club's Ragnaros Wipe: https://youtu.be/HGXjoAqjKFU

Orlando Bloom - Pirates of the Caribbean
'Priest' comic - Flintlocke's Guide to Azeroth (http://pc.gamespy.com/flintlockes-gui...)
Audio - "Dives", Wipeclub (link not available)
"Two Rows" image - The Wartime Biggles Band
Additional Info:
- DKP: Dragon Kill Points: essentially a barter system where you gain points for killing bosses, attending raids, etc and use them to buy items that are dropped by said bosses.
- Why is Orlando Bloom the whelp? Because in "Pirates of the Caribbean", Captain Jack and Barbosa have a conversation in which they refer to Will as a whelp.
- The song in the background is "Marco V - Godd", or so I've been told. I can't confirm this, as I've never heard the song myself (except, of course, during the video).


Ok, for anyone that gives a shit, I've updated the transcript for the video! There's a good chance I've made one or two mistakes (particularly with character names), but I figure it may help out those of you who can't follow it. Also, as ever, answers to the most commonly asked questions are in the "About" tab, so stop filling up the comments with already-answered questions, kthxbye!

I finally know why the Raid leader card in hearthstone says "Handle it"

Despite all the swearing and general abuse, Dives does actually give pretty good instructions.

Obviously the antics of the raid leader are the core of this video, but I feel like not enough credit is given to the animator. He truly solidifies it as an internet treasure with the animation.

This brings back memories of me in my guild. Warlocks had their own channel and we LITERALLY ignored the entire guild during raids. We simply talked trash and threw as little dots as possible, because we HAD NO RESET. And yet, all the other classes, that didn't play lock, and never played lock, were like, ooooh I see you put dots on the dragonz, 4 locks, 4 dots, good job. We'd just snicker.

My first raid with them, I threw on like every dot I could think of, got agro and almost died. Lock leader was like, woah woah woah, hold on sparky, that is not how we do things here.

It was like winning the presidency and then the real power players taking you in the back room, and saying, we know what you promised the voters, but this is how it really works.

I first saw this animation when I was 13 back in 2006. Nine years later, and this whole thing is still unnaturally hilarious to me.

I always lost my shit at the extreme tone shift at 2:40, and I honestly always will no matter what.

Trying to explain this to someone who's never played an MMORPG before:

"OK, so this guy is directing a 40-player raid in World of Warcraft-- "

"What's a raid?"

"Know what? Never mind."

The "run to the centre!" and "don't stand next to other people!!!" always gets me.

And this, ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't join a guild with a DKP system.

Honestly, this guy wasn't a bad raid leader, he told people wtf to do and at the right time.  He just had severe anger issues (obv) and misplaced priorities.  I know you want to kill this dragon and get your obsidian edged blade, but if you've been wiping for hours on end, just sotp and go play tetris or something.

I listen to this while raiding. 10/10 would wipe again.
