Firelands Raid Hotfixes Sept. 20
edit: also.. if your gonna nerf things so much... why not fix the achievements? >_> 10m heroic Rag is way easier than 25m... but share 'realm firsts' ...
Honestly so many of the three heal fights are now two to one heal fights, it just shows how over the top the nerfs was.
Maybe Ill get a rag kill sometime this week and heroic shannox will start being common among PuGs. Other than that one boss I wonder if PuGs will start doing any other bosses on heroic, otherwise Ill have to find a guild to run with in order to find content that doesnt put me to sleep. I was enjoying doing current raids in PuGs =/
How long should blizz wait?
Till you guild is done with the heroics? And what timeline is that? Your timeline?
I'd say they should wait until the next patch comes out.
All I can see coming from this is a lot of people unsubbing until 4.3.
Walking through firelands is about as easy as the Zandalar's right now.
The RNG hates us though, about 80% of the gear that drops gets disenchanted.
I understand making easy modes accessible to all players/pugs to allow everyone in the game to at least experience what the raids have to offer but why did you water down Heroics this much? I saw groups that couldn't down Rag on a regular basis go 5 of 7 HM in 4 days.
That's not a nerf that's just stupid.
Now I have nothing to look forward to until the next patch.
I'm all for allowing players of every quality to see content, hell, I never stepped foot in Naxx (40) or AQ (40) back in Classic. I never once raided Sunwell in BC. So I know what it's like to not get the chance to experience content. With that said, there is a compromise that doesn't spit in the faces of other raiders out there and Blizzard already has it in the works (the LFR system).
If this is going to become the standard for Blizzard, gutting content while it is relevant to allow broader access, then I think this will be my last expansion. And sadly, Blizzard has already stated they have every intention of nerfing the new raid in 4.3.
I have no issues with normal mode nerfs, but in the future Blizzard should really keep heroic content hard until at least the next tier of content.
