    Did it. It was easy.

    Got an issue? Get a tissue, and perhaps L2P your goddamn class for once. Might help with not being reduced to a shitstain on the ground on the TI.

    Get your ego out of here db. You can hardly kill some mobs because you can't possibly put out enough DPS before they take too much of your health.

    What's funny is I bet the people here bragging would get owned in PvP.

    Repeated quote: "All attacks avoidable" I agree it's an endurance test but so is killing a high priest of ordos solo (without heroic raiding gear), and it's not that difficult to do. Insulting people just because they find content easy that you didn't isn't very convincing.

    Hey! I wiped a ton of Disruptron and Mingus Diggs (like... a lot). Some people found it easy... they must be supermassive ego dipshits that are lying about their gear level NO WAY they had it easy on a fight I didn't.

    I mean... there's that remote possiblity they could just be better than me... nah, if it's hard for me it HAS to be hard for them I'm just sooo high up. Or at least I'd own them in PVP! HAH! /strokes self.

    I'm in full normal/flex gear & I still die if I don't pay attention to the mobs abilities.

    While they are actually quite easy to dodge, I'm glad they made it so it's not BRAIN DEAD easy especially for melee & tanks who (like me) enjoy pulling large group of mobs & just blow our cooldowns killing em.

    Now before people say you can still aoe pull & not die, try pulling 10 gulp frogs at once

    Undoubtedly they are harder than any other "world" mobs. I still do not say the place is very "difficult" though because of my (admittedly more hardcore-based) gamer definition of "difficult" which I stated several times ITT already.

    What's difficult is if content is a literal brick wall for you. That elite you just cannot kill in Diablo III because it 1-shot nukes you or is camped on your body (and you still have to find a way to kill it). Or in Warcraft, wiping constantly to solo and group bosses and then having them reset on you (so you're hardly closer).

    Soloing the high priest of ordos can almost count as difficult in my books (2 man is easy because he will not leave combat). It's not really rewarding or required for the most part though (I think there is 1 item you can farm though).

    Honestly I am not sure what was particularly hard. I came on an undergeared alt, ran around for about an hour and got almost fully geared up without killing a single mob. If you are fighting mobs and are way undergeared, sure it is going to be hard, but that isn't particularly unique to the isle. Most of the rares are dead easy. There are some mobs like the gulp frogs that you do have to be careful of, but here is the thing there are plenty of easy mobs to kill that offer the same rewards, there isn't much of a reason to screw around with mobs like the gulp frogs. Generally the harder mobs with better drops are going to have a group killing them anyway so chances of getting killed then aren't particularly high.

    The whole game is about avoiding and mitigating damage. People with this logic would never admit to anything being difficult.

    I think that is a pretty big exaggeration. 99% of the game you can drool all over your keyboard and do fine without ever mitigating or avoiding anything.

    I gave hard, concerete examples of things that I find difficult in that very post you quoted (would never admit...???). Disruptron is also about avoiding and mitigating damage but the scenario you are given makes it a lot harder than most/anything on Timeless Isle despite being a LOWER gear check.

    So we're basically saying nothing in the game is hard.

    Therefore Timeless Isles relative difficulty to rest of the game=difficult.

    It's possible if you have very high avoidance.

    I thought we were talking about difficult or not difficult, not "compared to breathing picking my nose is hard".
    You can run around the island and get most of the chest rewards without killing anything at all, that is the very definition of free epics.

    Yeah it was great to polish off abilities I hadn't used since questing. Looking forward to more of this kind of content in WoD.

    Somewhat class based as well, the above is extremely difficult as a Rogue.

    Similarly, the Kilnmasters regularly annihilate melee but eg, locks can totally trivialise them since their tank pet is immortal.

    Curious what abilities? I can't say it's done the same for me, the only one maybe would be Blinding Light but even then I hardly use it on TI.
