"Once the number 8, being the eighth percent, be reached, then runneth towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."

Bashiok (formerly Drysc; real name Micah Whipple) was a long-time Blizzard employee (October 2003 to July 2015)[1] and was a Community Manager for the US World of Warcraft forums before moving onto the Diablo 3 Community Team. He is a large fan of both the bands Tool and The Mars Volta.[citation needed]

In the public test realm for Patch 2.1.0, Drysc summoned 40-man raid bosses in Shattrath City.

A Draenei NPC in the Exodar's Crystal Hall is named after the CM's first avatar (Drysc). A rare mob in Gorgrond is named after his second avatar (Combat Bashiok).

At the end of July 2015, he announced[2] he was leaving Blizzard.[3]
