    Inspired by Diablo II

    Though I'm mostly known for making ridiculous AI, sometimes I get other crazy ideas too. This is The Countess predecessor, the one which invented runes magic (or something along those lines, make it up yourself).

    The whole idea is built around drawing runes, and there are a lot of them. So, replayability is pretty good, for WoW boss anyways.

    Details:
    • boss: The Duchess, lvl 83+
    • instance difficulty: 10 man
    • boss encounter type: tank&spank / survival
    • boss difficulty: from not that difficult to nearly impossible
    • amount of RNG: a lot

    Features / info:
    • players have to draw a rune patterns periodically
    • AoE effects from 33 runes, negative for players, positive for boss
    • 39 runewords (if you are unlucky)
    • constant AoE damage threat
    • total new spells: 140+
    • rows of code: 3k

    Pretty neat, but uhhh why do you have to draw runes? what does it do? and how effective is it with other players?

    Aesthetically it looks super cool but in execution, Im just sitting here like "what the fuck is going on?"

    +rep regardless.

    I just wanted something with D2 runes, so why not rune patterns, didn't even know what this boss creature is supposed to look like. I made this 'paint' thing, wrote an algorithm to check if any of existing patterns are contained within all drawn mess (there are couple such patterns for every rune and some leeway in terms of mistakes). Effect depends on a resulting rune type, which makes it difficult up to insane, since if player fail to complete any rune it will be rolled at random - up to Zod that is, and that's pretty much a wiper. The flame doesn't switch targets during rune draw sequence, but target is random so all players are supposed to know what to do if they are targeted.
    The unusual rune and runeword effects were kind of difficult to implement so I scripted what I could, quickly anyways, like crushing blow, static field, thorns%.

    I actually have video examples for every rune type, since I originally wanted to sell this script. But my sell thread wan't approved for some reason.
