Oondasta and Nalak Loot Eligibility Change

Community Manager
Back in early March we made a hotfix to remove loot and bonus roll eligibility for players that defeated Oondasta and Nalak while visiting from a different realm. At the time, the change was made to address realm stability issues. Since then, we’ve address those issues by making tuning adjustments for Oondasta such as increasing the spawn rate, and reducing Oondasta’s health by 50%.

In an upcoming hotfix, players coalesced from a different realm will be eligible to receive loot or use a bonus roll after defeating Oondasta or Nalak once more. Keep in mind, players are still only eligible to receive loot or use a bonus roll once a week.

This change will take effect in each region after their scheduled weekly realm maintenance.

Good change for low pops now that Oondasta doesn't seem to be crashing servers anymore. If you're on a low pop I recommend making friends with someone on a high pop. :)

Hoorah!

I can't tell you how many times the "but I won't get loot" conversation has come up when trying to kill these bosses with real life friends that play on different servers!

Thank you!

    Thank you. This was a stupid thing to change to begin with and I'm glad it's being set back the way it was.

    Now maybe I can actually get to kill Oondasta.

    I like the change, but this won't fix how overpowered Oondasta is. It's Piercing Roar mixed with a few stacks of Growing Fury, wipes the entire alive population fighting at once.

    Now if we can raid tot with friends from other servers you wouldn't get so many complaining about merging low pop servers.
