Had eyes glued to the screen waiting for a 32k proc so I could make an audio trigger for it... eyes are bugged out after casting it probably 100 times in AG west.
Anyone wanna save my eyesight and know the exact text for the proc?

I am skeptical about the summoned nukes that druids get since its hard to find mobs that it work on. Some creatures who are called Summoned so-and-so's will give me a message " this only works on summoned creatures" ?? Just what will it work on?
Is there list somewhere of which mobs Annihalate and the lower level versions actually have worked on?

AtU works somewhat differently then the previous spells in the line.
AtU works on Summoned and Constructs.
If mobs are flagged correctly (which is fairly hit and miss), AtU will land on:
Summoned: Elementals, Summoned Creatures, so forth
Constructs: Golems, Gargoyles and the like
If you think a mob should be summoned, and it's not - /bug it.

What I was hoping was to get specific creatures and the zones/expansions from people who have tried the spell and had some success. Perhaps, like me, many druids have not bothered to load up the spell since its rare to find anything that responds, so I will be trying it out in raids to see what it works and post my findings as I come across them.

I use it on mobs that look like mage pets or gargoyles. Besides that i often don't have the spare spell gems to be randomly testing it on mobs.
Offhand, raid mobs i can think of are Zi-T in Demi, plus gargoyle trash and the Gargs in MM event.
ToB trash gargs and Valik the Cruel.. and Enforcers/Watchers in the first DK event (we're not past that yet so can't comment further).
Basically any Gargoyle in DoDH it works on.. Aside from obviously elementa looking mobs, i havent tried it on any other trash from either expansion.. and don't frequent other expansion enough to bother testing it.

it's a wonderful, wonderful spell and I love it! 32k procs rarely but it does and it's great. And like it's been already mentioned, it works on constructs too. Thalassius missions, puddles and golems there... boom boom! Zi-Thuli in Demi and gargoyles etc etc. I have yet to seen it resisted and usually hits for high damage and I get 7-8k crits often. Way more than with fire or ice nukes. Or maybe just my imagination...

I've had 11k off it before. It's base damage is close to EB and better than RC.

Its nice to hear that it procs for you and does damage, but again, since its only going to work on certain mobs its good to know which. In addition to the ones mentioned, I have found it works on these mobs as well.
Relic- A roving cyclone
Thallasius-sea dervish, puddle of water, elemental construct, elemental watershaper, construct of surf ( I believe more probably in this zone, the whirlwind models, constructs and puddles or different names and I shall check as I do various missions)

Just to add my greedy perspective - this spell doesn't seem to me to proc anywhere near enough.

I had this land 3 times on Valik in Theater of Blood a couple weeks back. I believe the average chance to proc is 2% or 1 in 50 castings.
I've also noticed that it does crit more then either our Ice or Fire DD spells. I have the most fun with the spell in Ashengate West where it lands on *all* of the statues, goos, and elementals.
For those asking about making audio triggers, the 32k proc emote phrase is:
"Explodes in a burst of elemental energy"
I made a custom audio trigger from an old Firesign Theater spoof on the 79's era "AVON Calling" radio commercials. Here it is:

Hmm, is there somewhere a list of maybe DoDh, PoR and TSS raid mobs which are ice or fire resistant and which are summoned? Or anyone can recommend some good site for raid strats especially for druids?

I started the little quest series in Steamfont where you have to kill LB and DB minotaurs and steamwork mobs. I tried out Annihilate spell on the steamworks and clockworks and to my joy it worked! Not sure if everyoen already knew that, but was news to me :) So hopefully this spell will be useful also in SoF.
Annihilated me arse off in Gyrospire Beza (http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/zone.html?zstrat=537) & Gyrospire Zeka (http://everquest.allakhazam.com/db/zone.html?zstrat=538)
Landed on everything except Gnomes & Brownies.:buttrock:
