    Firelands Raid Changes Incoming

    Firelands Raid Changes Incoming
    Originally Posted by Blizzard (Blue Tracker / Official Forums)
    With the final showdown against Deathwing approaching, we’ve been keeping a close eye on players' progress through the current Firelands raid content. Before patch 4.3 is released, we want groups who are working on Heroic-difficulty content to be able to get as close to Ragnaros as possible, and we want players who are tackling normal progression to be able to experience as many of the encounters as they can. To achieve these goals, we’ll be toning down the difficulty of both normal and Heroic raids through hotfixes in the coming weeks. In general, we plan to reduce health and damage of all raid bosses in both normal and Heroic Firelands by around the same percentage we brought difficulty down for the original Cataclysm raids when Rage of the Firelands (patch 4.2) was released.

    We're looking forward to seeing more groups of players face off against the Fire Lord in the weeks ahead. However, before we make these changes, we want to give everyone a final shot at the bosses at their current difficulty level -- so this is a heads up that we’re planning to apply the difficulty hotfixes beginning the week of September 19.

    Stay tuned to the Patch 4.2 Hotfixes blog for these and other live updates to the game as they happen.

    I don't really understand why people are mad. If you wanted the challenge, there was plenty of time.Honestly, if you haven't completed the challenge by now you weren't up to it in the first place. You can try again in 4.3.

    Nice, at least most of hardcore guilds will be able to clear at least 6 HC bosses by the time 4.3 hit. That will reduce the frustration of having to clear firelands every week till the end of the expansion to get more legendaries.

    They already cleared all the content a long time ago. If anything, they would welcome the change since it would make it easier to gear alts and make farm nights go by just that much quicker so they can do other things.

    Sigh, i can see why they would nerf normals, they need to bring back pugging and some fights requires you to think wich is unnaceptable for 90% of the playerbase but leave heroics fucking alone. Bads already have Shannox and Majordomo for free 391. Oh well, whatever not like there is much to expect out of this game anymore anyway.
