Today, we are going to obtain an insane buff, that gives us a total DPS increase of 500% (or more) and destroy Durotar.
The buff is obtained from Ravenous Frenzy
, the Venthyr ability. It seems like refreshing the duration, by either logging out and waiting for the cooldown, or going through the Proving Grounds, will allow you to keep all the stacks you gathered.
This means we are able to get it to 99 stacks, which is usually not possible! For a 198% damage buff, 99% haste buff and more than 100% crit!
Thanks to the Sinful Indulgence
legendary, it will last about 25 seconds
I thought of a hilarious way to showcase this, and decided to go boomkin. I got as many possible modifiers for my Starfall
, including trinkets, potions, mastery / versa stacking, Skyfury Totem
and Blessing of Summer
The ultimate damage it would do, was about 80-100k over 8 seconds (sadly it doesn't scale with haste). This means everyone who didn't pop a major defensive cooldown or flee for their lives was destroyed!
I also wanted to see if it was possible to nuke a raid boss for a speed record kill!
So I gathered 7 friends who played Druid, and was going to summon them with a fully stacked Ravenous Frenzy. According to my calculations, if everyone succeeded in keeping the buff for the boss, he would die within 20 seconds.
Sadly, only 2 people managed to retain the buff at once (over 3 different attempts), most people lost it because of a slow loading screen. Their characters were idle for 2 seconds, which means the Ravenous Frenzy got lost before they could do any actions.
I thought of doing more attempts another day, to finally succeed in the record kill, but many people got to know about the bug, and it is too risky to leave it unfixed since word might spread of it. So I had it reported shortly after the tries we did!
Anyway, for the druids that succeeded, their DPS jumped to 60k! If we had 10 druids summoned and all managed to keep the buff, the boss would have been obliterated within just 15 seconds
Would have been a glorious sight...
