I just got him yesterday. I didn't even know about the follower and the random group decided to go for it. I either hit the jackpot with LFG or it isn't as bad as people think. We even had to go AFK for 2 minutes while we waited on him.
Totally brings back memories. Having started playing in April 2005, I was in awe of level 60s who did things like Leeroy and his guildies in UBRS.
That was hilarious. First time seeing the video.
I love this explanation by Perculia of what the video shows:
The raid leader sounds like Cartman giving out orders in that SP WOW episode.
@ thebl4ckd0gUS or EU? And Horde or Alliance? I'm EU Horde and I'd gladly help you get those. They aren't super difficult, but if the rest of a pug isn't interested, it certainly can be.On topic: This whole Leeroy thing has really gotten out of control. There's way too much of him in the game! Also, I think the video is as fake as it gets, which ruins the entire thing. Why would someone explain tactics with one (or more) people AFK. What is that stupid succes chance number that guy brings, that's not even plausible. And why would they even run in with him.. if he ninja pulled, they could just stay out of the room. Sorry, but it's stupid!
Thanks for this post! It brings a huge smile to my morning. Actually, showing the Leeroy Jenkins video to my spouse many years ago may have been the turning point.... With curiosity piqued just enough to listen to my explanations of the game and why the video was so funny, we got the trial version, and then the hook was set! Thanks to the original Leeeeeeeeeeeeeroy! team, PALS FOR LIFE, and thanks to Wowhead for being so well attuned to the WoW community to understand the joy this anniversary brings - even for the trolls who are constantly seeking outlets for their unending vomit of vitriol.
Others talking about getting old......I was sitting here reading about the achievement and thinking, "I don't remember having to do all that. Seems we just ran in, killed all the bats, and got the achievement/title. No having to find his corpse or kill anything else.And then I remembered how many years (and x-pacs) ago that was....
Leeroy. I don't like Leeroy. Who was he? A guy that charged into a room full of whelps and wiped his raid. He became famous doing that. Fangirling over someone that does that is just inciting bad behavior. Everytime it happens in LFR i say "Looks like we have a Leeroy." Never caught on though.
This video is was obviously staged as well as the wipe. 33.3333% rate of success... uhhhh, wtf was this guy using as his calculations? gtfo
i saw the video in that time but i never be able to play (too expensive in my country in that days)
Never gets old.
Times up, lets do this!
"F!" Leeroy Jenkins. You can quote me on that.
This is the video that made me pick up Vanilla as a 7th grader a decade ago.
