Oondasta Health Nerf

Just noticed that Oondasta's health has been reduced to 436 million, 50% nerf from his 872 million.

Are other servers seeing the same numbers?

If so, lol heroic world boss.
Sargeras wiped at 8% earlier with the 872 million value, and when the boss reset he only had 436 million.

I don't think Blizzard has a clue what they're doing when it comes to world bosses.

If only there was a way that Blizzard could implement raid bosses in a zone all to themselves, that only your group could zone in and kill it, and it could be separate from any other group trying to kill the same boss. They could call them, instances.

And thus solving the world boss problem, by entirely eliminating them!

My point is that there was a reason Blizzard was hailed for putting bosses in instances in 2004, as a brilliant game change. There were a few exceptions but they were truly rare, 40 man only(at least on Argent Dawn) Why they felt the need to fix what wasn't broken is beyond me. It's lead to lag, server crashes, and all sorts of insanity. GG.

I mean they failed completely on their "Heroic level boss" so makes sense they just make him a loot pinata.

Just checked here, yep, 436m hp.

There are about 300,000 skeletons still on the beach from the last un-nerfed kill (read: zerg-fest) about 4 hours ago. >.<

They didn't failed. Playerbase just failed to follow the rules and used cheap tactics to kill Oondasta or destroyed their server.

They did fail, if they wanted it to be heroic level they could've done MANY things to discourage zergs yet they didn't. So it's not the playerbases fault, it's Blizzards fault for not properly tuning the restrictions of how they want the content to be achieved.

Would you say heroic raids would be fine if servers could bring 300 players to a heroic boss and down it, well you probably would but they they're locked to a certain amount of people for a reason. They could've easily put the GY across the water in kun-lai, make it so he can't be brought down the mountain, make him heal for every person killed, make him do more damage for every person killed, and the list goes on.

They failed on their model of a heroic level world boss, there is no denying that. They should stick with making Sha of Angers.

They did stuff to prevent zergs on Azeurogos.. a debuff that if you die and rez with in certain radius of your corpse you instantly die

why dont they have the health scale, like rares do on isle of thunder?

seems like a good anti-zerg measure

That would have never worked, because people can grief that so easily.

As did they with Doomwalker, and considering you couldn't grief DW, while you can Lagdasta, it would have been the worst thing ever.

Then we'll just get mad at the 6k DPS heroes buffing his healthtable.
