About

50 DKP Minus / Onyxia Wipe / More Dots refers to a series of remix videos based on audio from a disasterous World of Warcraft raid, similar to the Leroy Jenkins. In the video, a World of Warcraft player known as Dives instructs his fellow teammates as they attempt to fight the dragon Onyxia, during which Dives warns of losing 50 DKP (Dragon Kill Points) and delivers an explictative-laden rant as the campaign fails.

Origin

In early 2006, a raid member of the WoW guild Wipe Club recorded audio of an attempt to complete the Onyxia raid, one of the most challenging levels at the time. As the campaign goes awry, guild leader Dives can be heard delivering a series of explatative orders and interjections, expressing his horror and dismay.

On March 25th, 2006, World of Warcraft player Deluthor created a Flash animation to accompany the audio recording. The video is in the style of early Group X videos, featuring hand-drawn stick figures, simple animations, intentionally incorrect spelling and using related images to represent individual words (for example, using the image of a set of scales to represent the word "way", which sounds the same as "weigh").

While the original video is no longer available on its original platform, Deluthor (under the YouTube account Alachas1985) uploaded the animation on December 8th, 2007. In 15 years, the video has received more than 9.4 million views (shown below).



On the 17th of March, 2022, Deluthor uploaded a 1080p quality version of the video to Youtube (shown below).



On the 4th of April 2022, the original Youtube video was removed for violating YouTube's policy on violent or graphic content. Deluthor uploaded a "YouTube Approved Edition" of the animation to YouTube with all of the supposed offensive material replaced by stills from the video "Real Dick Vs. Dildo Challenge".





Spread

On April 21st, 2006, YouTuber dar2 shared a remix of the audio entitled "Onyxia Wiped." Within 14 years, the post received more than 91,000 views (shown below, left).

On May 19th, 2006, Kotaku[1] interviewed Dives, calling the player "This Year's Leeroy Jenkins."

Two years later, Urban Dicationary user brochillxcore defined "50 dkp minus" as "What you say when someone fucks up a raid in World of Warcraft. To get the entire effect, you have to add a few "fucks" and "shits". Also, DKP is a commonly used system to distribute gear in higher end raids." The post received more than 195 upvotes in 11 years (shown below, right).

On September 22nd, 2009, for World of Warcraft's 5th anniversary, Blizzard reworked the Onyxia Lair raid into its current level 80 version. This update also added two achievements: More Dots![2] and Many Whelps! Handle It,[3] which could be achieved by completing the raid in under 5 minutes and causing 50 dragon whelps to hatch within 10 seconds of Onyxia taking flight, respectively.
