World of Warcraft: Being Rude to a 10.1 Boss Has Hilarious Consequences

One particularly hot-headed World of Warcraft villain has a hilarious reaction to players who are rude to him in 10.1. If World of Warcraft players use a certain emote on the antagonist in Embers of Neltharion, they may find themselves with a one-way trip to the closest graveyard.

Embers of Neltharion is the first major patch for World of Warcraft: Dragonflight. The content update is currently available on the Public Test Realm for all players, where they can experience the new Zaralek Cavern zone and some of the accompanying story found within.


Fyrakk, one of the Primal Incarnates and leaders of the Primalists, plays a major role in the Embers of Neltharion campaign. During the story, players will find Fyrakk bathing in a pool of lava, drawing power from the dark experiments of Neltharion. The giant proto-dragon cannot be attacked at this time, but he can be targeted. If players make the /rude gesture at Fyrakk, he responds with a gout of fire that inflicts the Roasted debuff. While Roasted, players cannot heal and take huge amounts of damage over time, killing them almost instantly.

This is not the only time World of Warcraft has done something like this. In the Eternal Palace raid during Battle for Azeroth, if players used the /rude or /spit emote while targeting Queen Azshara, the boss would instantly kill the offending player with a bolt of lightning. This led many players to prank their fellows by saying there was an achievement for performing these emotes on Azshara, tricking them into dying.

Hilariously, this warning will almost certainly cause similar results once Embers of Neltharion arrives in World of Warcraft. Now that players know of this secret interaction, many will go out of their way to get Roasted by Fyrakk at least once, especially since they can only do so during one part of the 10.1 campaign. Considering he isn’t a boss in Dragonflight’s new Aberrus raid, players will have to see if this interaction remains if Fyrakk appears as a raid boss in the future.

Unfortunately, dying to Fyrakk in this manner does not unlock the new Still Standing in the Fire achievement coming in World of Warcraft Patch 10.1. In order to get this, players must die to the proto-dragon’s fiery breath during the Fyrakk Assault world event when it arrives in the upcoming patch. This will no doubt be nostalgic to players during the Cataclysm expansion, where Deathwing would rain fire down upon players at random, instantly killing them and awarding the Stood in the Fire achievement.

World of Warcraft is available now for PC.
