I couldn't. Took a lot of unnecessary damage from the crap he left on the ground (played a rogue). It was about that time that I decided to quit until I upgraded my computer. You should have seen my Elegon fight. I was rocking 1 fps on various parts of that fight.
Would be nice to be able to play the game on something that isn't bare minimum.
Elegon would make me lag really bad for odd reasons. Some weeks it would be fine, some weeks we would wipe because I'd DC (was tank at the time).
Probably all of the transparency screwing with graphics rendering -- the floor being see-through, the boss itself being see-through, LOTS of flashy attacks and little particles flying everywhere, etc.
Before I upgraded the computer in my room, it would do ~80FPS in Valley of the Four Winds or some-crap.
On Elegon, I was getting ~20-25FPS with very noticeable choppiness and I'd oftentimes hear complaints from the rest of the raid about "omg laaaag" etc.
Hopefully Blizz learned their lesson about not stressing peoples' computers too much on boss fights. I know we all like to laugh at the "idiots" who fall on Elegon, but sometimes extremely low FPS can have something to do with that too.
