    That new sliver is pretty damn impressive if that is right. The sliver is probably in Morban given the name and death theme of the zone.

    Believe its a sliver, as its only 4 bosses and the rapid assault is only 20 mins like ToDQ compared to 1 hour for both EE and FT. It would have to be a really small 20 man.

    Are you basing this off of its implementation order or the difficulty? I'm referencing the difficulty. TOTDQ is the DH of 10 mans. It's too easy.

    Anyway, PTS notes are up:

    Implementation order. You're right in saying that ToDQ is easy, but whos to say that the new one will be harder? Its the same tier. Half of the reason you're thinking DH was so easy is because you were already geared in T1 raid gear by the time you did it for the first time. It was only easier mechanically, not technically.

    Guess the Sliver isn't a part of 2.2.

    Well, this kinda gets my hopes back up that we'll see the new CQ maps with 2.2 :P

    Also, hardmodes on the first 2 bosses of FT and EE

If your guild is feeling extra brave, tired of dying to Regulos, hit item limit in your dimension, etc. please hop on and give them a go. How to activate them will be fairly obvious once you get there.

    Please PM any and all feedback to myself or Halvon; specifically Gelidra and Progenitor to me and Zaviel and Kain to Halvon. If you ask nicely we might even give you our e-mail for the direct line + coffee chat uplink. Also if you plan to test at specific times let us know and if our schedule allows we might show up to help and/or laugh at you.

    Thanks!

    Oh, I didn't realize you knew what gear I had going into DH the day it was released.

    If you were a raider at the time, you were most likely full or nearly full T1 gear.

    Dendrome is not part of the current plans for 2.2 - it is a future release and it has developers working on it actively right now.

    DH was such a joke the day it was released it was pathetic. GP was legitimately very difficult when it was released. TotSQ was very easy when it was released, hence it is the DH of Storm Legion. As various people pointed out on official forums the placeholder achievements for Grim Awakening are the TotSQ ones so we currently don't know how many bosses it will have or even whether it is 10m or 20m.

    It is very strongly likely it is a 10m though, given Hardmodes coming for 20m soon and another observation someone made:

    Gilded Prophecy - what-happens-if-Laethys-wins
    Drowned Hall - what-happens-if-Akylios-wins
    Rise of the Phoenix - what-happens-if-Maelforge-wins
    Primeval Feast - what-happens-if-Lord-Twyl-wins (since Greenscale is dead)
    Triumph of the Dragon Queen - what-happens-if-Crucia-wins

    So Grim Awakening will be - what-happens-if-Regulos-wins

    The Dummy Foundry was an area built for players in the Storm Legion Alpha to aid with testing 1.11 specs at 50. Initially it just had a few level 50 and 52 Dummies. Over time we badgered the devs into adding in a Level 60/62 version, CQ Lever, PA Consumables, Gear Vendors and finally after my persistent efforts a bunch of tanking dummies
    It is amazing and probably the best instance in the game, bar Hammerknell of course.
