The first fight after patch showed very little change so I am wondering if it isn't fully applying the changes
That was from the fight starting 10 mins after patch dropped. There was also a mass dc, so there could be a bug where Drakkar itself isn't fully changed. IIn case I miss the next round to test again - could anyone doing it post here to see if they notice any significant changes during the next rounds (or if they experienced something different on a diff map shard). Right now the fight is on par/easier than pre-patch, but I am hoping that's down to a glitch.
edit: Second run we got a little caught out with barely anyone on 3rd champ. It made no difference. The shield was never in danger (why does it even have a health bar?) and the event still completed without issue. The fight in my opinion needs a whole rethink. It needs phases, it needs to pull people apart more to reduce the visual overload. It needs mechanics that mean something. Right now, it's a long champ fight and that is it.
What sleep is here? What dreams there are in the unctuous coiling of the snakes mortal shuffling. weapon in my hand. My hand the arcing deathblow at the end of all things. The horror. The horror. I embrace it. . .
