    Heroic mode? I don't see any heroic mode. Oh but there's a new normal mode.

    I'm happy that the nerf is here. Firelands normal was harder than it should have been, but at least my guild will be able to down Staghelm and get to work on Ragnaros finally.

    Thats a pretty substantial "initial" nerf. My guess is by the time 4.3 hits they will be giving away H mode achieves and gear just for finding the Firelands entrance.

    If you thought that Firelands normal was too hard, your guild is terrible and will not kill Ragnaros nor anything on heroic before 4.3

    It hit a lot harder than I though it would, I'm sure blizzard said gradually and in waves. They'll probably next or soon nerf most of the bosses abilties by like 30-50%. This was just the health/damage nerf, soon they'll nerf the amount of adds, stacks required for ryo, etc. I dont really approve this nerf, but eh. More content too see I guess.

    Yes, because the world is coming to an end. Do you need a brown paper bag to go over your head too?

    Pretty big nerf for being the first one. Oh well. So I'm guessing 4.3 is just around the corner?

    15% holy holy thats big nerfstick. I thought it would be 5% each week or something like that.

    Anyone knows Majordomo Staghelm and Ragnaros's health on 25-man normal after nerf?
  1. Gaimen's Avatar
    Yeah i was surprised at the size of the nerfs. I was happy to go 5/7 heroic before it but with that big of a nerf H shannox will be that much more of a joke.

    Wow bigger than I expected, looks like my guild will be seeing heroics finally (we're bad)

    pretty much my reaction as well, current hard modes should actually be hard because the extra challenge is their purpose.

    Not a nurf. A fix for the hardcore casuals.

    This is such a big nerf that it's already more-or-less the same thing as just giving the achievements for finding yourself in front of the boss.

    The summer ( holidays ) is a so nice period to release a new raid content and then giving some BS excuses about the whole " Our game is SOO hard, you deserved our love "

    So, you just want that every single tier would work like naxxramas at 80.

    It's supposed to get harder as the expansion proggress.
