The vengeance fix didn't do jack diddly squat to the amount of average attack power we get over a fight, I think you need to re-read what was actually changed. It mainly combated people eating Annhilate/Massive attacks on spirit kings to achieve way more attack power than intended, still going to get the same amount of vengeance from tanking actual boss swings.
Garalon is probably the only fight where we lost a good amount of attack power from the hotfix since he doesn't melee at all and just spams swipes.
Yup this is arguably one of our best fights, I managed a startling 190k hps with 35k of that being effective in phase one. Average guard I tossed out was 415k, pretty brutal to say the least.Statue guard bubbles is giving me some pretty insane numbers on Wind Lord Mel'jarak because of 200k+ dps. Almost keeping up with the actual healers
