MMO-Champion - Upcoming Heroic Elegon Hotfixes
Upcoming Heroic Elegon Hotfixes

​This week will see some changes coming to the Elegon encounter in Heroic mode Mogu’shan Vaults. The Discharge effect that occurs whenever an Energy Charge is defeated was not dealing damage in Heroic mode, which had the effect of making a portion of the fight easier than it should be. Since a few guilds had already beaten Heroic mode Elegon before we were able to apply a hotfix to the issue, we chose to hold off on resolving this issue until now to keep the field even during the first week of Heroic progression. In addition to the fix to Discharge, Elegon’s health will also be reduced to offset the loss of Draw Power stacks resulting from the Discharge resolution.

The following fixes will be in place when raids reset this week in each region:
  • Discharge now properly deals damage in Heroic difficulty.
  • Elegon’s health has been reduced by approximately 12.5% on Heroic difficulty.

    Yet more proof that world first is more about time than it is skill, nearly every tier one or 2 bosses has some mechanic completely broken that only big name guilds get to abuse then its "fixed" for the masses.

    Wait, so something was bugged, and so they're nerfing the fight to accommodate the bug being fixed? Wat.

    Having 3 seconds of DPS time between spark waves is by no means comparable to pushing an additional 2 waves.

    Sparks explode for a tiny bit more damage than normal mode, and our healers didn't even come close to struggling in normal mode to keep up the sparks.

    Not to mention the sparks have more health in heroic, so they have more time to heal.

    They want to keep the field clear and at the same difficulty from here on out. They don't want to make the fight harder then it was last week and have the ones who have already cleared it before the hotfix have it killed when other guilds that are still working on it get to face the harder version. They just realized a mechanic in the fight was bugged, so they fixed it, but instead of fixing it and making the fight harder for everyone (especially those who haven't killed it yet) they nerfed a different part of the fight to keep it the same difficulty.

    To be honest, they could've left the health and just added in discharge.

    Adding in discharge will literally give my group another 1-2 wave clears.
    I'm convinced you live on these forums. Last I checked you guys were 2/6? Skipping bosses huh? tsk tsk

    "Blizzard fixes "flower power" in Ulduar (Hodir hard mode I think?) without changing anything else"
    MMO: "WTF Blizzard cockblocking people after Nihilum(?) defeats it"

    "Blizzard fixes Elagon then tuning the fight down so that fight difficulty is comparable before and after fixes"
    MMO: "WTF Blizzard why nerf fights"

    Can't make everyone happy.

    Actually this fight is pretty balanced comparing 10 with 25 man, it's so much RnG on either.
