That's a real strange thing to change. Has any other raid fight been like this before?
please reset void eruption, please reset void eruption, please reset void eruption
Might as well give Painsmith this treatment too while they're at it.
really weird change to make blizzard. like of course no one wants to sit there waiting to stop dps but i dont know about this change. seems like some temporary bandaid fix for a badly designed boss.
Meanwhile on Fatescribe... zzzzzzzzzz
Why is this 9.1.5 instead of live?
Seems like an interesting change. I haven't done this fight on mythic but from what ive gathered doing the fight on LFR and Normal usually you would put melee / hunters in there. So doing something like this might make putting some ranged in for Cooldown resets may make the fight a bit more fun for some people.
Thank goodness. Literally A%^&*! during a boss fight is so awful. Half our raid was watching shows and playing Runescape on another monitor while progging a penultimate Mythic boss, hugely positive change. Any boss where the best strategy is just full stop everything, AFK mid fight, is a bad boss design.
Having never done the boss so have no knowledge of how it feels, but having heard about the "stop DPS meta". This at least sounds like an actual game-design fix. "Dark Surge". Works for the boss and the theme, and is not just some timer change or bandaid math fix.If the feel of the boss fight works out well with this, it seems like someone actually sat down and did some game-designing at Blizzard. Not just hotfix/bandaid.
On Mythic KT you have to sit around for like 1-2 minutes waiting for peoples CDs to be up to push the boss. The reason is because you have to blow 4-5 spikes at once and use every single healing/group wide defensive to survive as its the easiest strategy.
Huh? Can't they just hotfixed it LOL
I've never understood any fight that requires DPS to hold DPS. It makes zero sense and frankly feels awful. I'm not a big fan of Pilav but I agree 100% when he blew up about that. DPS want to compete at the highest levels and push as hard as they can through an entire fight. There's always one or two bosses every raid tier like this too and it's mind boggling. Blizzard has a lot of work to do to earn the respect of the community back. They should drop 9.1.5 and scrap the rest of SL. Go back to the drawing board and in a year or two release the best WoW ever. I love WoW but I refuse to sub again until it's fixed.
Stop making fights that punish you for having good dps.
