    Dungeons and Raids
    • Antorus, the Burning Throne
      • Coven of Shivarra
        • Corrected an issue that caused the health of Torments to not properly scale with raid size.
      • Eonar the Life-Binder
        • Players who are disconnected during the Eonar encounter will have access to Surge of Life once they reconnect.
      • Argus the Unmaker
        • Cheat Death and similar effects will not reset their cooldowns when you die during the final phase of the Argus the Unmaker encounter.
        • Boss Health increased by 10% on Normal and Heroic difficulties
        • Soulbomb and Soulburst now deal periodic damage more rapidly
        • Edge of Obliteration damage increased by 50%

    Items
    • Carafe of Searing Light now correctly shares a short cooldown with other "Use" trinkets.
    • Convergence of Fates primary stat increased by 13%. Effect reduced to 3 seconds of cooldown reduction (was 4 seconds).
      • Developers’ notes: This change is aimed at changing how Convergence of Fate scales with item level – or rather, how it doesn’t. For some specializations, the cooldown reduction effect is so powerful that the item level of the trinket is all but irrelevant. We’re shifting more of the item’s power to primary stat and less in the base proc to cause the trinket’s scaling with item level to be more similar to other trinkets in Legion.

    Buffing a boss one week after release? Pretty unheard of. Goodluck with that Blizz.

    Unsure about those spriest changes. 12% on their strongest damage ability is a lot.

    Yay for slight Outlaw Rogue buffs though.

    Yeah, and most of the healing trinkets are garbage, except the PL one, that drops from Argus...

    Probably because 25.5% of guilds who killed Heroic Garothi also killed Argus within the first week, while only 9.6% of guilds who killed Heroic Goroth also killed KJ within the first week.


    Argus was severely undertuned. To the point where decent groups were literally killing him with pugs within <20 pulls. I'd say Coven was much harder than Argus and even that was pretty faceroll with 3 tanks.

    12% on dot damage!? Come on man

    all these abrupt changes to raid trinkets and gear after the first raid week is making me dislike this game

    What is the point of 3 tanks on Coven? I haven't seen this yet.

    Small indie company, can't predict or make appropriate balancing because they don't have the resources to do so.
    Must feel great to use the playerbase as a live-testingground for big swing changes made.

    You can remove the downtime caused by immunity completely, which ends up being an overall increase in dmg even with the extra tank


    Shadow/Ice: swap on every ice cast
    Shadow/Fire: 2 tanks + 1 healer handle fire while everyone ones hammers on shadow the entire time
    Fire/Ice: 2 tanks + 1 healer on fire again. You need either a pally Hand of Freedom himself/the tank or put a BDK on ice to AMS the stacks off.

    That Vindicaar skybox image makes me think of the original Mass Effect title menu and its soundtrack ♥

    Well, they should remove the gear, achievements, and mounts obtained on week one, then. Since they won't, buffing him after the fact is complete BS.
    OMG 13:37 - Then Jesus said to His disciples, "Cleave unto me, and I shall grant to thee the blessing of eternal salvation."

    And His disciples said unto Him, "Can we get Kings instead?"

    ... Why? It's not the players' faults that Argus was undertuned. They did the content without exploit, and they did it fairly easier than what Blizz intended. Thus Blizz decided that they thought Argus should be buffed. Just because you couldn't couldn't get your toy when it was on sale doesn't mean Blizz should take the toys away from those who put in the effort to get it while it was on sale.

    Hell, even with the buff it's not too difficult. We 2-shot it last night, and that was with a few initiates who hadn't done him yet. With more and more people 945+ upgraded gear, 75 traits, and tier sets, the buffs are basically negated.

    They should NEVER make a boss more difficult after releasing it Live. I've seen what this does back in Classic and it ends up with the situation where they're tweaking Razorgore every week to defeat whatever clever strategy the big guilds used to cheese him and making life miserable for everyone else.

    AOTC should be removed for everyone who killed Argus before the buff
