Ulduar: Algalon Defeat Dialogue

Long and long ago I got the key for Algalon's room. I killed him a short time after but forgot to get shots of the dialogue. When we went back and killed everything on 25man a couple of months ago I remembered to take screen shots.

Algalon the Observer yells: Your actions are illogical. All possible results for this encounter have been calculated. The Pantheon will recieve the Observer's message regardless of outcome.

Algalon the Observer yells: Witness the fury of the cosmos!
Algalon the Observer yells: Behold the tools of creation!

Algalon the Observer yells: I have seen worlds bathed in the Makers' flames, their denizens fading without as much as a whimper. Entire planetary systems born and razed in the time it takes your mortal hearts to beat once. Yet all throughout, my own heart devoid of emotion... of empathy. I. Have. Felt. Nothing. A million-million lives wasted. Had they all held within them your tenacity? Had they all loved life as you do?

Algalon the Observer yells: Perhaps it is your imperfections... that which grants you free will... that allows you to persevere against all cosmically calculated odds. You prevail where the Titan's own perfect creations have failed.
Algalon the Observer yells: I've rearranged the reply code - your planet will be spared. I cannot be certain of my own calculations anymore.

Algalon the Observer yells: I lack the strength to transmit the signal. You must... hurry... find a place of power... close to the skies.

Brann Bronzebeard yells: I know just the place. Will you be all right?
Algalon the Observer yells: Do not worry about my fate, Bronzen. If the signal is not transmitted in time, re-origination will proceed regardless. Save... your world...

Amusingly enough, we actually did this with only 10 people, even though it was the 25man raid. Ulduar has some tricky spots still, but Algalon relied on a big hits from the boss to make it a hard fight. With 85s and current gear he's not a hard fight anymore.

I don't remember who ended up getting the reply code, but I was back in Dalaran in time to hear Rhonin yabber on about it.

Rhonin yells: Citizens of Dalaran! Raise your eyes to the skies and observe!
Rhonin yells: Today our world's destruction has been averted in defiance of our very makers!
Rhonin yells: Algalon the Observer, herald of the titans has been defeated be our brave comrades in the depts of the titan city of Ulduar.
Rhonin yells: Algalon was sent here to judge the fate of our world.

Rhonin yells: He found a planet whose races had deviated from the titans' blueprints. A planet where not everything had gone according to plan.
Rhonin yells: Cold logic deemed our world not worth saving. Cold logic, however, does not account for the power of free will. It's up to each of us to prove that this is a world worth saving.
Rhonin yells: That our lives... our lives are worth living.

I'm still quite dubious that it was the right thing to do to defeat Algalon. Between Deathwing and the Old Gods it might not be a bad idea to have the Titans come back and help fix things up. Of course by this point the Titans are going to come back, take one look at us and what we've done to kill Old Gods, beat up Algalon, kill two of the Dragon Aspects and strip the others Aspects of their power, and they will just straight up destroy Azeroth. If the Titans are smart they'll nuke it from orbit and never give us, whatever level we are by the time they get here, a warning or a chance to fight back. If they aren't smart... well perhaps at level 100+ we'll be fighting Aman'Thul and the rest of the Titans.
