Video games: teaching kids to kill their bosses

One of the sites I visit regularly is Not Always Right Having worked in a service based industry most of my working career, I find some of the customer stories rather amusing and relatable.

They have a Warcraft related encounter I thought I would share.
You can read the whole encounter here
Numa Numa Meets The Beaches of Normandy

but the funniest part is

Customer: “I don’t care about your ‘World War’ game. No wonder there is so much violence in this world – video games teaching kids to kill their bosses

So I was thinking what would a Boss – Boss Fight entail?

The Boss

This is a Multiphase fight.

In Phase one
Boss is a Friendly NPC when the encounter is first activated. Once you’re in the office room and the raid   team walks in through the glass door,
random mobs start spawning – Meetings – Overtime – Complaints – Audits – These should all be dealt with quickly and efficiently. If one or more are left up too long they add a stacking debuff.

The Boss will tank these adds so let them get up some argo before dpsing.  The Boss will randomly proc Early Mark or Raise. Which will increase haste and +spell damage. In addition they will randomly approve Leave requests or Promotion.

Phase two
The Boss will change colours during this phase, you should avoid going too close as The Boss has a AOE that causes stress damage to all party members in range. You only need one tank- and the healers should be spamming moral support. Range DPS should fire office Gossip in random directions while avoiding the Boss during the enrage.

Co- Worker or Middle Managament adds may spawn during this phase encounter. These can be cc’d as they will despawn at random intervals but can interrupt the healers and DPS.

If the boss is not beaten quickly a Sacking Debuff will effect random party members. This will stack, and some party members will leave party and Work Quit. The boss must be cleared before the Bigger Boss is activated

Loot tables include –
Better Office with View
Own personal Printer
Dual Screens
Additional paid Leave
Expense accounts
and Cab Charges.

Rare drop includes : A Car and driver.
