    Sylvanas Windrunner Additional Hotfixes

    Sylvanas Windrunner Additional Hotfixes

    After we posted about yesterday’s hotfixes, we finalized some additional updates to the Sylvanas encounter, which will go live with maintenance in this region early tomorrow.

    The changes are:

    Sylvanas Windrunner
    • The total damage players must do to Sylvanas Windrunner has been reduced by approximately 5% in Normal and Heroic Difficulties.
    • Sylvanas Windrunner now transitions out of Stage 1 at 84% on Normal and Heroic Difficulties.
      • Developers’ notes: We felt that players were losing too much uptime due to mechanics, and getting out of the first phase much later than originally anticipated, so this is meant to curtail the length of the encounter without affecting difficulty too much.
    • Veil of Darkness radius has been reduced in the third stage of the encounter.
    • Banshee Wail and Banshee Scream radius reduced.
      • Developers’ notes: Our goal here was to help ease the space constraints imposed by larger raid sizes, without substantially reducing the difficulty of the encounter.

    We’ll have the changes above noted in our next hotfixes update.

    Thank you!

    they couldn't figure this kind of thing out from the testing that was done on the ptr? yet another example of bad management at blizzard not noticing obvious things.

    Oh these are great news. A bit easier to kill as it’s slightly overturned for my taste but maybe some people like it.

    Not overtuned, you are supposed to get gear from previous bosses or maybe even m+ and renown ups weekly. After guild is closer to 236 ilvl with additional renown level it's easy. It's called progress.

    No mention about all the annoying RP and the cutscene? The only interesting news for me would have been if they had chopped off 4 minutes of the fight.

    To be fair, assuming Blizzard just refused to learn something from the PTR isn't that far fetched. Every patch there's a pile of glitches and errors present that were all repeatedly documented by PTR testers and then ignored.

    And yes, this isn't an example of that.
