Tune duration of defense event in Storms of Winter meta

The group event to "Defend Raven shrines to keep energy flowing to Havroun Weibe"... can you please reduce the duration of this event, it simply becomes a matter of rinse & repeat to destroy minions and bombers over and over and over until it's really tedious.

This defense event should be max 6 minutes, not 12-13 like it is now.

    And perhaps while we are talking about bjora. Drakkar fight perhaps with one less phase, its tedious enough as it is.

  • And while you're at it, please add a button "Skip to the rewards" so we don't have to keep pressing 1 for so long. We all know we're going to succeed the meta anyway.

    Not sure why you want to be sarcastic about reducing the duration of one of the "pre-events" to the Storms of Winter meta. I'd like all to remain, but the defense vs those bombers, if you've got an organized run with a full map, it's just repetition for 6-8 out of those 12-14 minutes the event lasts. No challenge, no fun. We should definitely keep it in so we have to survive the "onslaught" but as it is, it's more of a formality and we kind of get the Fraenir's feelings after a few minutes, and then we can move on to next part of the corrupted shards.

    I'm up for this.
    Make it 5-6 mins, but when the Bomber succeeds in dropping the bomb at the shrine, it should permanently damage it. Three bombs and the shrine goes boom. The Icebrood portals should also spawn an invulnerable bomber that goes to the nearest raven shrine, and the only way to stop this one is to destroy its portal of origin.

    Make it faster, but more challenging.
