Who is this Skitra change for? Mythic guilds either just skip it, or if they do still kill it go "lol alright, slightly longer fight". Meanwhile, people who are just now starting Mythic raiding have a more difficult encounter to overcome VERY early in the raid. Bad change. 0/10.
I was expecting nerfs on N'zoth, maybe even Carapace, but what we get is a buff on the second boss. lmao
Personally I'm glad to see blizz BUFF instead of nerf something for once.
This is bizarre. Why would they buff this when the tier is (pretty much) over? I could understand if they buffed Skitra when it mattered, but why now? Nyalotha raid opened Janurary 21st. It has been exactly 6 months and they buff this boss now? I don't know what is going on the decisionmaking at Blizzard recently.
I will take "Pointless Changes" for $2000 Alex.
Genuinely what's the point? Just making a boring, easy fight with repetitive mechanics take longer than it needs to.
This is clearly just a couple fixes got accidentally reverted in the patch
ONE OF THE most pointless thing blizz have done in the history of gaming
So enable autoleveling for raids now lmao. Stop getting better gear, raids become too easy! WTF blizzard.
On one hand I can see why they buffed Skitra. She was stupidly easy. I think a lot of even lower middle tier guilds drop her in 1-2 pulls. Meanwhile Wrathion and Maut both take a bit of time for guilds at that level.But why the hell now? This is a change that should've gone live within a month of Ny'alotha. Did a Blizz employee finally bother to raid Nya and suddenly find out how ridiculously under tuned Skitra is?
What is the point of buffing any boss at this point. Let people progress through the raid in a dead patch, geez. As always Blizz is sooooooo out of touch with the game and community, is really weird.
I've been pugging the first three bosses on Mythic for the last four weeks, including one run today. I can't say I even noticed any difference in Skitra's difficulty today compared to the last few weeks (we killed it in the first attempt, as usual). Skitra is definitely the easiest boss out of the first three.
