I was creating abilities for a contest at SC2 mapster and got bored, so I decided to make a little remake of the Thaddius boss fight from WoW. It turned out to be a very difficult and micro-intensive fight. Even I have only beaten it once on faster speed.
The three abilities are:
- Polarity Shift: After 10 seconds, units next to units of the opposite polarity create an explosion of electricity that damages all nearby units.
- Shocking Grasp: A random Target will be paralyzed and take damage over time. If any other unit comes within range of the afflicted unit, shocking grasp will jump. This can create a chain reaction.
- Spawn Volatile Spark: Two volatile sparks are spawned, serving as summoned adds that should be DPSed down right away.
You can use game speed as a difficulty. Slower is easy, whereas faster is very difficult.

Let me know if you manage to beat it.
