Killing Firelord Nomi for 7.2 PTR Stress Testing
Players took their revenge on Nomi today as part of 7.2 PTR stress testing, a Blizzard event designed to test server strain by encouraging players to free-for-all PvP in Dalaran. Nomi was by far everyone's kill target, although he proved difficult to kill due to dangerous abilities like
mixed in with the stress test lag.
If you're unfamiliar with Nomi, he started off as an adorable Panda we tutored in Mists of Pandaria. However, something mysterious and terrible happened to Nomi in Warlords of Draenor as he emerged in Legion eager to burn everyone's food to a crisp and provide players with
Legion Cooking Orders
The 7.2 PTR Stress Testing was one of Blizzard's most memorable PTR events due to all the spawning bosses, GM participation, and the satisfaction of taking down Nomi. Blizzard made things difficult by spawning multiple copies of Nomi as well:
After the PTR Stress Test completed, Blizzard held a special impromptu event to spawn Nomi as a raid boss. Employees like Zorbrix and Celestalon showed up to participate - Zorbrix as a flying turnip, Celestalon as a sparkledragon with a pokeball constellation. Nomi was a difficult boss to defeat due to the lag, and once he was killed, the Blizzard employees kept spawning famous NPCs. Hogger, Fel Reavers, Iron Reaver, and even Whale Sharks all joined in the fray.
As part of the fight, Nomi uttered phrases from popular demonic fights including Gul'dan and Jaraxxus. He used the abilities
as befitting a demonic chef. Quotes included:
Invaders, you dangle upon the precipice of oblivion! The Burning Legion comes and with it comes your end.
WHAT? Who dares to disturb the Burning Legion.
Let the echoes of doom resound across this wretched world, that all who live may hear them and despair.
Break yourselves upon my body. Feel the strength of the earth!
You face Jaraxxus, Eredar Lord of the Burning Legion!
