To be fair to Khahan that doesn't mean there is no glitch with his specific video card, graphics drivers and overall system setup colliding in some bizarre way. The best way to demonstrate this is the one he abjectly refuses to do, of course.


I'll know in a week when my new comp is here and put together.


In case you're confused, people are asking for a screenshot because the internet is full of liars. In order for anyone to believe your underlying assertion, you have to provide them proof that the issue exists in the first place. You are highly unlikely to get any meaningful input until you provide that evidence; otherwise you're going to get a lot of 'you're doing it wrong'.

At least (and it is more) 52,600 people according to Wowprogress have successfully done the maze.


Wowprogress tracks players' handling of specific mechanics now?

Well, I'm assuming since 5,260 guilds have killed Durumu normal, at minimum that many (assuming all 10m which its not ofc) people have successfully navigated the maze since you aren't killing it (certainly not in 10m) with a single person dying to the maze each time because they "can't see it". They all might've struggled, but they all eventually learned it. It's not a mechanic you can do hand holding. Everyone's gotta do it.

That should tell you more than a screen shot would when I just described exactly what the screenshot will look like. Get a mental picture of durumu's room. Now put the boss in floating in the middle and cover the whole room in that purple gas cloud. There's your screenshot.


The problem is ethos. No one on the internet knows who you are, so they have to assume you're dumb, because 99% of the time (made up, but it should be clear) of similar claims are stupid people.

It's nothing personal, but if you listened to what people posted on the forums, pigs would be flying during durumu.

I also really don't understand the purpose in that gif that was linked of backing up into the initial opening. it opens when you're still standing in an open area, just wait for it to open ahead of you and go in...


Oh I would say going back into the spots is a complete waste of time.

It's a perfect demonstration of the phenomenon where the safe spot is clearly visible but people are too busy staring at the ground and then crying about how everything is a BLOB OF PURPLE THAT THEY CAN'T SEE ANYTHING IN.

It goes beyond that; if there is an actual issue and it's related to certain types of hardware, the only possible course Blizzard has to fix it would be identifying the hardware, setting up something in-house, testing it personally and testing any changes they make against that.

A chat log snippet of someone whining in raid chat doesn't really achieve the same thing.

All of this:
"Blizzard has the info they need, the raid numbers, the times, a chat with me with. And the gm never asked for a screen shot. Its not needed."
is none of the info that Blizzard needs. It's about as useful to them as you blogging about what you ate for breakfast.

How so? If you don't go back into the safe zones and instead wait for the maze to develop around you, it has a pretty good chance of developing on top of you instead, which if not fatal is certainly suboptimal.

I'm colorblind, I have a hell of a time seeing anything and have to follow a raid member. So stuff your making excuses comment. I welcome any changes where I don't hinder our raid.

It was hard to see for maybe the first 3-4 attempts during our first week. Since then we don't lose anyone to it?

Go slow, inch along, and be comfortable with being inches from the beam. Heck, don't move based on the beam's speed/location, just ignore it.

It's performance fixes and a change to the way the initial safe zones spawn. I hope this clears up the problems some people were having doing the maze.

It doesnt cause any performance issues.

Delete your WTF folders and clear your cache and turn off addons.

Also, LFR now leaves an entire pie slice open, it's ridiculous.

14 dead to lazer before it started still.

Ran this again again last night. Needless to say the maze is absolutely pathetic now. Congratulations Blizzard, you ruined another fun boss after only a few weeks. If they nerved heroic too I'm uninstalling
