    Thok Video - Max 99 Stacks No Phase 2 - New Record!

    Last week I posted a video of 65 stacks, this week we didn't quite manage to get Thok heroic so we did this instead!

    BTW, Thok only goes to 99 stacks! Enjoy


    Sorry my cam wasn't available for this stream : ( No bear hat.

    Blue post said he gets no stack in LFR.

    Finally, I've seen a few references in this thread, and elsewhere, to Thok. The change made to Thok last week was entirely a bugfix. Based on our final days of Raid Finder testing on PTR, we decided to completely disable the Acceleration mechanic that increases Thok's energy generation in Raid Finder, since he changes phases based on health % thresholds in that mode. That change inadvertently removed the mechanic from all difficulties, and the 20-hour time period for which the bug was active represents the time it took us to track down the cause, implement a fix, and test that fix before applying it to the live environment. Thok's current energy regen rate is identical to the values seen for the better part of PTR testing. Had we changed nothing, Thok would have been the easiest encounter in the zone rather than one of the more challenging ones, and we are always going to fix bugs that completely trivialize raid encounters. That was a bug that we fixed ASAP. The upcoming Norushen adjustments, however, are design changes that we're going to roll out along with raid resets next week so that they affect everyone equally.

    Really impressive stuff!

    Do you have a log of that available? Would love to see the healing going out.

    Fun fact: This was our original Heroic 25m Thok strategy and we managed to execute it with 10 healers. Once we reached about 20%, the Blizzard encounter team managed to push a hotfix through which made Acceleration with >=30 stacks on heroic deal 3 times the original damage. Rage ensued!

    You should feel bad. We kept wiping upon reaching > 30 stacks on 25 HC and were wondering why, until somebody checked the logs and saw that it did 3x as much damage :s No tooltip fixes/dungeon journal fixes were given that day!

    How are you guys barely taking any damage? Screech hits for about 450k physical yet your health pool on ALL raiders barely drops by even 20%.

    I was just taking a look through our logs, on average Deafening Screech is hitting for 250k. With Healing Rain, Efflorescence, rejuvs, eternal flames and bubbles that damage doesn't last very long : )
