Any reason why this was changed and not announced?
Ok not going crazy
massive fu blizz
I jsut killed him with the Rain of fire coming after me but it jsut hit & i killed him so I'm scared of Meatball o.o
Though in a way it does make sense; 85k is still less than you're expected to pull on 3/4 rank 8 bosses.
11/30/2012 08:30 PMPosted by DonnictonI don't particularly like the idea that melee get to clear this fight while casters are supposed to just come back next raid tier when they have hopefully scaled up enough to do that kind of mobile dps.
Just for everyone else the dps requirement for this fight went from ~45k dps to ~85k.
Oh and buffing a boss so extremely is pretty weak. The fight itself is pretty basic - its pretty much a patchwerk.

You're going to hate Epicus Maximus. Seriously, if you can't dps with the movement on battletron, Epicus is going nowhere for you.
(how have people not survived epicus to berserk? He's easy to dodge, just takes a fair amount of moving around :P).
Well the movement thing for ranged prolly makes up for melee on the dark summoner. That was by far the hardest fight in there, gg engi i got on 3 goes and spent ~25 attempts on dark summoner (and ironically the day after i kill it they nerf it). Battletron aint hard, mechanically it's very simple. I just can't get the dps for it and won't for quite a while - purely restricted by gear. I think the dps requirements go from ~45 - 50k dps to beat enrage to 85k+ in one fight. Not much of a gradient.
Honestly im pretty disappointed - maybe if the fight was like this from the get go i wouldn't be so pissed off. But buffing a boss by doubling the dps requirement in a hotfix is just plain outright crazy/dumb/stupid etc etc.
Blizz, in future if ya gonna have hard gear checks just implement an ilvl check where u can't even queue if you dont make the requirements or at the very least have a min ilvl recommendation for each class - stop wasting other peoples time if you have no chance of killing the content. Better yet just have it scale like challenge modes - not every one enjoys endless gear grinds, fresh content like this, that for the most part is heavily based on player skill would be awesome every other patch.
