    Fuck me. How can people STILL not understand it does not change anything but the amount of HP is shows you to have. You still do the same percentage of damage and nothing will change soloing wise.

    As Blizzard have said multiple times and even used very easy to understand graphs, the squish will do NOTHING to your solo ability.

    If your attack takes 10% of a mobs hp now it will take 10% of a mobs hp post squish.

    Seriously? How many freaking times do people have to say this? THE STAT SQUISH WILL NOT (according to blizzard) AFFECT OLD CONTENT SOLOING. IN FACT, IT MIGHT ACTUALLY BECOME EASIER DUE TO BLIZZARD MAKING IT SO IF YOURE WAY ABOVE A MOBS LEVEL YOULL HAVE SOME SORT OF HIDDEN ADVANTAGE THAT MAKES YOU DO MORE DAMAGE OR WHATEVER.

    This should be a requirement in every member sig.

    Blizz quote "It's important to understand that this isn’t a nerf—in effect, you’ll still be just as powerful, but the numbers that you see will be easier to comprehend. This also won’t reduce your ability to solo old content. In fact, to provide some additional peace of mind, we're implementing further scaling of your power against lower-level targets so that earlier content will be even more accessible than it is now."

    Now im a cynical bastard who doesn't believe a word anybody says but im gonna trust blizz on this one BUT if they renege on this im gonna be super pissed

    Soloing shit is one of the few pleasures i get from wow.

    The relaxation i get from farming mounts and hopeing for mog gear is one of the few reason i still sub now until WoD.

    A lvl 60 will be able to solo lvl 60 raids now. It'll make PvE twinking really OP. It won't affect lvl 100s though since they'll be scaled back as much as a lvl 100 will be scaled back.

    The buff is for people like you who need even more assurance that old content will be soloable. Its not needed, but it will make you shut up about killing your level 90 raid bosses and under, at 100.

    Best way to explain this is: You can still solo everything that you've been able to solo, just with smaller numbers for HP, damage ect
    This is my Sig, there are many like it, but this one is mine.

    Are peoples brains really still having trouble getting this? I don't understand really how many times blizzard has to say that soloing old content will not be affected in any way.

    Why easier?
    Because the squish has zero impact on the overall mechanics. It's just number crunching. We do less damage, targets have less health, bringing it down to exactly what we have now too. You need 10 hits with 100k right now to kill a 1mio health mob. You'll need 10 hits with 10k to kill the mob which has then 100k health.
    And since you leveled from 90 to 100 and are farming old content, you hopelessly overpower the old content which you farm right now, even more.
    Tempest Keep mob will fall over as trivial then, like Molten Core mob falls over now.

    Well then don't believe them. I mean..you come here asking how things will change and will it be harder to solo old content. We give you all the info that we have i.e: Blizzard's statement (that you could have found yourself). You tell us, you don't believe Blizzard anymore for...whatever reasons and things they did lately...

    Well..were does that leave us honestly? We haven't played anything after the itemsquish. We don't know. But ok..since you distrust Blizzard, then here is your answer: Yes..it will be impossible to solo old raids ^^

    I can understand peoples anxiety over this

    Blizz hasnt done a very good job explaining it.

    People have visions that ragnaros in MC will have about 50k health instead of over a mil health and that it will look weird seeing bosses with greatly diminished health pools doing greatly diminished attacks.

    I can more or less one shot raggy in MC and at level 100 it wont even be funny so the fact we are suppose to be more powerful but not look as powerful looks strange and weird to people and i can understand that.

    For one because it's not just a flat percentage decrease but making all the exponential increases from vanilla to MoP linear. That being said I do recall Blizzard saying that, if need be, they'd apply a buff to a character in pre-WoD zones if you're the only person there for soloing purposes. I'm interested in what they do but I am certainly glad I have nearly every in-game mount pre-MoP and the ones I still need probably won't be too difficult to do even after the squish.

    OMG no stop asking these useless questions. Nothing will be affected. It's all relative ffs.

    Or we could just wait and see...

    But no, let's spend our time trying to predict the future. That works so much better.

    I'm amazed with people on these forums. Just the other day Blizzard said AGAIN the the soloing shit will not only be the same, but probably easier. And then there are those that say "I don't believe anything that Blizzard says". Good for ya, but that doesn't make you sane

    That's just what some people do. I ignore it all, but others can't help but get baited into it. Numbers won't be as big on the screen, but things will still die at the same rate and probably even faster next expansion. That's all you need to know. lol

    As I understand it, they're reducing the scaling up each old tier received. I don't know if they're just going to flatten the ilvl of all level 60/70/80/85 epics, or just reduce the spaces in between them, but if they do remove them, it stands to reason that they'd be similarly nerfed, for instance you could imagine them bringing ICC down to Naxx levels if the rewards are no longer ilvl 264 but 200 instead. Gives them more space to bring down the quest reward ilvls for the next expansion.
