While doing my orc team tasks, I reached the annoying wall of doing 900 dmg with Rain of Destruction, 900 dmg to casters, and 900 dmg to fighters…
While some of those you get naturally, 900 dmg with Rain of Destruction is really hard to do in a non-fel team. So, I was trying to have Gul’dan in every single match.
Eventually, I crossed the odd opportunity to go against an Elite Protector team + Brightwing. I killed all 3 protectors fast, but BW survived.
I found that to be a rare opportunity to farm the quest… and simply casted RoD on her, skipping my other merc’s attacks, as she healed into eternity. By the time I reached BW, I still needed 850 dmg with RoD, so I calculated 850 / 14(dmg) = 60 turns minimum to get the task done.
Welp, I straight up just did that like a bot, using the Hearthfire addon to track my turns. At exactly turn 40, however, all my mercs exploded… and I lost the match.
I was fully prepared to do it again for the remaining 300 dmg on RoD, but to my surprise, the task completed.
So, maybe a bug, or maybe Blizzard realizing their task is stupid… but their ainti-bot mechanic actually worked in my favor. I saved a good 10 mins of spamming the same ability.
