The Number of Wipes It Takes

This is my particular brand of crazy — some may even call it a gift. The truth is, I can wipe many, many times without become too frustrated, at least before we score that first kill. (Wipes after that first kill…well no one’s patience can last that long.)

Since I am nearly done wiping in Cataclysm, here are my all time high scores, complete with recent pictures I’ve taken while wiping.

Dragon Soul


normal: 1
heroic: 41

Warlord Zon’ozz

normal: 4
heroic: 50

Yor’sahj the Unsleeping

normal: 0
heroic: 91

Hagara the Stormbinder

normal: 5
heroic: 62


normal: 5
heroic: 36

Warmaster Blackhorn

normal: 4
heroic: 231

Spine of Deathwing

normal: 14
heroic: 193

Madness of Deathwing

normal: 12
heroic: 162

Total Dragon Soul wipes: 911

My deadliest boss in Dragon Soul is Warmaster Blackhorn. On 10 man, that fight takes a long time to perfect because it’s random. Whereas Spine and Madness are more difficult to learn at first, they’re easily mastered. It takes a while for Blackhorn to reach that point. At least the wipes are fast.

My wipes for Morchok are pretty embarrassing. We had the strategy completely wrong for the first two hours and wipes many times before one of us bothered to look it up. Many, many fast wipes.

Bonus Round


heroic: 243

And the deadliest boss of the Cataclysm is….RAGNAROS YAY!! I actually have more wipes than that, but I only started using DBM a few days into our Heroic Ragnaros attempts (because it had the most up to date molten seed timers at the time). So sadly I don’t have any numbers for Sinestra or Al’akir or any other bosses.
