  • Foe Reaper 5000
    • Molten Shield has been reduced from 50,000 fire damage to 20,000 fire damage on Heroic difficulty.
    • Molten Slag's spawn timer has been increased in both phases of the encounter on Heroic difficulty.
Firelands
  • Flamewaker Subjugator and Animator packs should now behave as originally intended. As Flamewaker Subjugators become damaged, Flamewaker Animators will be attackable, and must be killed quickly to prevent a significant buildup of Unstable Magma.

Items
  • Bottle of Dalaran Red, Bottle of Aged Dalaran Red, Cask of Dalaran Red, and Cask of Aged Dalaran Red should no longer award the player the next tier of Dalaran Red when placed on the ground

Quests and Creatures
  • The Brunnhildar transformation in the Storm Peaks should again be applied correctly to flying characters, and will not cause mounted characters to dismount. The transformation should not affect druids in Flight Form.
  • Alliance and Horde players are able to teleport to Anachronos as many times as they wish even after abandoning and re-accepting the quest "A Legendary Engagement".
  • Players will no longer go invisible in Uldum during the quest "Premature Explosionation". If players logout or disconnect during the cutscene, they will return to Khartut's Tomb instead of being ported to a nearby graveyard.

    Kinda weird that they have waited this long with the DM nerf tho.
    Its a mechanic that 1 dps per group has to do, if no-one has ever done it apart from the healer/tank, since those are the ones that did it before ofc, you are risking a wipe and if one does happen the entire party disbands.
    Might as well remove the entire mechanic from the fight :<

    Really? They are still going after cata dungeons ? Is there a demand enough to actually look into that kinda thing? It's ridiculous that there are so many other things in the game that are broken and this is a nerf that they implement... Meh, atleast I have my map of Black Temple. I hope they nerf that place soon.

    Pretty bad man. I tried to tank some all of last weekend and you wouldnt believe the amount of people who just plain dont know fights, dont know their class, and leave at the slightest sign of trouble. Im so happy that shit wasnt around when Cata released. We would never have gotten anything done.

    * o Flamewaker Subjugator and Animator packs should now behave as originally intended.

This wiped us 3 times because we were stil thinking you have to do it the old way .

    +1 I also play a tank and I'm continually amazed at folks who don't understand this fight. So many dumb-smack wipes on this boss. I'm happy to see the nerfs. Now maybe the group won't break up when we hit this boss.

    I just want the orbs, and this always gets in my way on this instance.

    Thanks Bliz.

    but its such an easy mechanic. stay at the bottom of the ramp, kill fire things. you even get to practice on the other harvest golems before the fight. Anyone with half a brain can get it. Its not necessarily a change that affects me, because I will get it regardless of how much damage the elementals do. But still, such an unnecessary nerf to an already faceroll fight. They aren't fixing anything here. They're just making fresh 85 players more and more shitty.

    I wasn't aware of there being more playable factions besides Horde and Alliance Steamwheedle Cartel members are not allowed to teleport?

    Huh, I never wiped on Foe Reaper ever before, maybe its because I always control the robot vehicle.
