But not a lot Sad

Here's the closest I've come to finding proof as to whether undying/immortal is available or not... from wowhead

We did it, we completed it no deaths. Buuut no achievement. After 3 days of waiting for the ticket the GM pretty much said "sorry for the confusion, but the achievement is completely taken out of the game." He also gave us the usual "Post on the suggestion forums."

Sorry guys. Ya, we weren't happy Razz

sounds like even if I wasn't a grade-A tool we'd still have not got it.

I definitely remember reading a pre-cata patch releases note (might have been the 403a notes) saying that both of these achievs were taken out (i think becoming FOS).
The reason was that the content was becoming trivial.

I've never attempted it. Too scared to make another display of my huntard skills.

After doing a little research, I couldn't find my sources and actually it could be more complex than just removal.

Another example why the GTFO addon is a great thing to d/l. Nothing like sirens going off when your standing in shit.

Not true... I HAVE got GTFO installed... not only did it not fucking sing a peep, but i also saw no void graphics until i'd already died.

I get a "Bing" from GTFO when I even sneeze near a brazier in orgrimmar (-12 damage), but 120k in KT, "Oh sorry I wasn't looking"

I think I read somewhere that it has an option that turns off warnings for trivial encounters. Maybe it considered Naxx as trivial?

Of course I have yet to personally try it so this is just conjecture.

This is probably because KT's spell places the void zone underneath the player's location, without any sort of targetting or debuff, or any other event that allows GTFO to trigger

Oh... I figured it would work for Naxx just like it works everything else.

So far like you said it almost works too good. Even when I do TB dailies it goes off for those little poison clouds from the spiders.

Would be good if they had an option where it only works for raids and heroics.

Kaz, you shouldn't make yourself feel bad about this.

That's my job.

I don't know much about the GTFO mod, but I'm betting that it works by checking your debuffs and damage taken. As explained by Rubber, this will not work for sources of damage that are not telegraphed by a debuff. Mods can help but they're ultimately no substitute for awareness!

Raiders can also use other mods to achieve similar functionality. For example:

- setting up a large debuff tracker that is obvious to you. To minimise clutter, you can filter out debuffs like Sated and Temporal Displacement.

- using a floating combat text mod (like MSBT) and making sure that any damage taken pops up in BIG numbers. This helps to alert you to damage from lava pools etc. Won't help you to avoid 1-shots though. Melée can also configure such mods to prominently display when your attacks are parried. This helps to alert you to situations where you are wrongly positioned and attacking from the front.

Does the spider poison actually hurt? I remember avoiding it my first day there but now I just stand in it and take it like a man.

For posterity,

It doesn't actually hurt... that is the annoying part. GTFO is still beeping when your in it. It takes account any damage your taking whether is large or small.

You should be able to turn it off. I haven't used it personally, too busy pulling aggro and dying to that to worry about void zones.

I blame Gallow for not briefing properly...

Oooooh look... Denying the Scion has been fixed (and applied retroactively)

Also you no longer need undying for glory of the raider.
