Raid Adjustments Discussion

With weekly maintenance in each region, we’re applying some hotfixes to raid encounters as a step toward their final tuning.

Serpentshrine Caverns

  • Morogrim Tidewalker – Tidewalker Lurkers’ health has been reduced to their post-nerf values.
  • Lady Vashj – Persuasion no longer provides crowd control immunity.

Tempest Keep

  • Kael’thas Sunstrider – The encounter is now set to its post-nerf configuration.

Again, these adjustments will be live following maintenance tomorrow, November 9.

Upon further review, we’ve decided to give this at least a week and discuss it some more. We will not be implementing the changes above with maintenance.

We’ll continue to look for your feedback here and update you with our revised plan, if any, in the next couple of days.

November 15

We’re still discussing this and looking at options from a design perspective. We haven’t made any decisions yet, and we won’t be making any changes of this sort in the next week.

Please feel free to continue the discussion, as your feedback is highly valuable to us.

November 18

The previously-mentioned adjustments to Morogrim Tidewalker, Lady Vashj, and Kael’thas Sunstrider will be implemented with weekly maintenance the week of December 14.

Thank you very much for your feedback and discussion. We really appreciate it.

Well… I’m glad my raid group cleared the content already and had the challenge.

That’s great. Now how about all those dead/dying realms out there? Any plans for those?

This is unbelievably cringe. If a guild can’t clear t5 as it is they should try to improve not just get carried by nerfs. I wish them luck in tier 6 and Sunwell. Thats disgusting.

Why even? Too soon.

To appease the casuals? Like hvh was?

I haven’t been a part of downing SSC/TK here, but I did clear it in retail.
The people that couldn’t…had room to get better. That is the entire point of progression.
This guild was very, very set on beating it before the nerf. Bad news for them.

You couldn’t maybe give us a weeks notice?

Any guild that wanted to do a final speed push with the current difficulty which is all wcl is going to count just can’t now.

Because you idiots don’t even realize how people in classic play the game.

I’m so glad you’re forming a council that you’ll also ignore

Jesus Christ come on stop shooting yourselves in the foot for two seconds please.

Please don’t nerf them this soon… When you make fights easy they are just boring. The difficulty is what made them fun

Typical. No communication until it’s released and nobody asked for it. What players want is a solution to dying servers, not going back on your word to nerf once the next phase comes out.

Laughable how often Blizzard mishandles their game. Who asked for this?

This is awful. Many guilds were maybe 1 or 2 pulls away and suddenly a no notice nerf.
