Thanks again

I'm curious on how Baleroc's Decimation Blade is effected by this. Does it do 65% damage now instead of 90%?


Good question. We usually get 3 - 4 decimations per Bale fight, and the best I did was 8 dodges out of 9, so it won't hurt us that much. But I'm sure a lot of raids out there have problems healing the off tank back up to full. If the damage from decimation is also reduced, it may help a lot of raids out there.
GG blizz!! more welfare gear for people !!! WELFARE LINE STARTS TO THE LEFT!!!
Step aside nerf stick blizz just took out the nerf Baseball Bat
Wow. Not sure how I feel about this.

The way I understood it was that one boss would be nerfed each week until 4.3 came out. Wasn't expecting them all to be nerfed.



Nowhere did they say they were going to nerf them like this.

They simply said nerfs to the encounters will begin this week.

not in increments; not by boss.

I'm sure this is only the first of them. They will be seeing how things go throughout the week and determine if more nerfs are necessary depending on the amount of guilds that clear the content.

To be fair: ".. we’ll be toning down the difficulty of both normal and Heroic raids through hotfixes in the coming weeks"

It sounded like it would be a more gradual process. So.. I would assume that we may see more nerfs coming up beyond what we saw today. In either case, I don't mind. Let the experiment of heavy nerfing before the next major patch begin.

LOL seriously
Wonderful changes - I predicted upwards of 40% - which might of been accurate if the heroic and normal nerfs stacked - either way I'm ready to one shot things faster.

Interesting nerfs; 4.3 please?

As announced in the ‘Firelands Raid Changes Incoming’ blog post ( http://us.battle.net/wow/en/blog/3494581/Firelands_Raid_Changes_Incoming-9_12_2011 ), we’ll be making the below hotfixes which have gone into effect during today's raid reset.

Normal difficulty

• The Wings of Flame buff duration on Alysrazor is now uniformly 30 seconds.

Heroic difficulty

• The Wings of Flame buff duration on Alysrazor is now uniformly 30 seconds.


Arn't these two changes hurtful and not helpful?
Daaayum. Guess my scrub guild can finally down Rag.

4.3 better be coming soon though... or there will be a lot of bored raiders out there...

No? I think it lasted ~15 seconds before? You may be thinking about the initial buff from picking up a feather, which lasts 15 minutes. This refers to the buff you get while flying by going through the rings.

Been there weeks ago.
More concerned /w getting my final HM kill pre-nerf. (baleroc)
The 15% nerfs aren't as bad as I thought they'd be for heroic firelands.

Looking towards the bright side, more people raiding and getting heroic gear. This will hopefully mean it will be easier to recruit people.
