    Putricide, 01/06 Hotfixes, MLG Orlando, Blue posts

    Updated Paragon kills Professor Putricide (25)
    I do not usually posts about normal mode kills but so far it looks like Professor Putricide won't be an easy fight, even in normal mode. Paragon (EU-Lightning's Blade) was the first guild to defeat him, congratulations to them!

    V A N Q U I S H (US - Blood Furnace) was the first guild to kill him in the US, followed by a few other guilds. (GuildOx / WoWProgress)

    Just as a point of clarification. The Professor Putricide encounter is working as intended. You are only allowed one abomination up at any given time in both 10 player and 25 player modes.

    [...] We are attempting to reproduce the spawning of multiple aboms. It's definitely not intended and will be hotfixed.

    [...] Wing end bosses will all be extremely difficult and should feel like a step above everything else - even in non-heroic difficulty (10/25 person). They will, of course, reward appropriately for the rise in difficulty, granting tier 10 armor tokens (25 player/10 player heroic only).

    If anything the 10 man version might be slightly overtuned. We'll be keeping a close eye on the fight and watching player feedback/stats. (Source)

    Upcoming changes to Forge of Souls for casters
    We do recognize this as an issue to an extent. I don't have any immediate plans for changes to Bronjahm to share with you at the moment, but we do plan on changing the Spell Reflect abilities of some of the creatures in Forge of Souls in an upcoming minor patch. We plan to implement a cast time on this ability, reduce the number of reflection charges it provides, and decrease its overall chance of reflecting spells. (Source)

    Ashen Band of Courage Proc Rate (Ashen Band of Courage
    So far it seems to be working right and we suspect that avoidance may be the cause of the issue. I don't have anything else to share but just wanted to post here to let you know that we are aware of the discussion regarding this ring and keeping an eye on it. (Source)

    Melee/Caster Friendly Encounters
    Providing creative and fun boss encounters is tremendously important to us and too an awful lot of players. We're not going to guarantee that every boss will be equally good for every spec, nor even that there will be an even and alternating pattern of them. We don't even want raids to fall into a predictable pattern like "Oh, here is the gear check single target guy. Here is the lots of adds guys." The game is five years old and we've gone through a lot of bosses. Our team will commit to keep throwing new fights at you. (Source)

    Classes DPS disparities in raid
    It is a big deal, in our minds, if some specs are legitimately holding back progress. The problem comes when players believe in their hearts that this is either happening or will happen in the near future. It rarely happens anywhere to the degree that it is expressed on the forums. Most hardcore guilds tend to run with the best players they have. Most pugs tend to run with whoever they can get. There are misinformed raid leaders out there who say dumb things like "I don't bring Elemental shaman on my raids," but we don't balance around the misinformed.

    If we things will get too far out of whack, we'll adjust them accordingly. In the mean time, focus on beating the bosses not beating your fellow raid members.

    [...] Now some guilds will constantly swap people in and out for particular fights, because that's just what they do. Fewer guilds than you probably think actually do this.

    But do we think mages, warlocks, Elemental shaman, Balance druids, hunters or Shadow priests are going to be "Sunwelled" (defined here as parked at the curb because the group benefits more from bringing someone else), no, we don't think that's going to happen.

    [...] If mages et al. have an important job on a boss, then defeating the boss is partially contingent on mages doing that job well. What puts me in sarcastic mode is the contention (from some of you, certainly not everyone posting so maybe this doesn't apply to you individually) that because mages have to manage adds or dodge poison clouds or whatever that they aren't important on that fight or that it's not fair that they can't do rogue damage because they're doing other things.

    If the mage and the rogue can't compete on the theoretical perfect fight target dummy then it's a problem and we'll get it taken care of. If rogues out dps mages on Saurfang (given how the Saurfang fight works) then we're not worried about it.

    I agree players do and should care about their dps. My advice is to work hard to make sure your dps is as good as it can possibly be. If you think you're doing that, well I'm skeptical, but beyond that, gratz, you won WoW.

    [...] Nobody really cares about winning the target dummy (at least they shouldn't). But when you balance a fight around an encounter what that means is that you shouldn't really have the expectation that dps will be similar at all depending on the encounter mechanics. Wow, DKs and Fury does great on Anub'arak. Well, sure, they can cleave everything to death. WoW, Arcane mages do awesome on Jaraxxus. Wonder why.

    One of the things I try to stress over and over is not to treat max dps as some real world number the way you can measure temperature or miles per gallon or clicks per minute. There is no test bed case for dps under idealized circumstances because those circumstances don't exist in a raid. In some sense every fight if a gimmick fight. Yes, it's possible for your dps to be too high or too low and we adjust that when we think it's out of alignment (and players will come here to try and convince us that it is or it isn't). But for the most part, you should focus on maximizing your contribution to your raid. There are specs that still do underperform in raids, and that is something we want to get fixed, but at least those classes have alternative specs that fulfill the same basic role. For the most part everyone else is getting to raid if they are interested and halfway decent. If you're not getting a boss killed, I can almost state for a certainty that it's not because you have e.g. more mages than rogues in your group. (Source)

    Meh. Its only a matter of time until they nerf putricide. Even though they don't want the boss to be a "freebie", they probably don't want it to be this difficult for 25man guilds.

    Remember that over time in addition to adding more attempts there is going to be a zone wide buff in the form of inspiration from our respective faction leaders.

    Thus its part of the design for ICC to slowly get easier, on normal at least.

    Deathbringer’s Will trinket will now proc haste as a replacement for armor penetration.

    very nice change ..for ous seeking the hard cap goal(im feral)..this trinket is nearly a moust if you whant to be hardcaped
    ..and the former arpen ploc on it was really a big waste if you already are hardcaped cheers to that change.

    and yes do not nerf more in ICC .. as many have said its the end game content and it should be "hard" to achieve..not a walk in the park


    and grz Paragon ..Professor Putricide is evil idd

    Gratz Paragon!

    I find it funny how after the first day I go onto the forums to hear "Putricide 25m is bugged" just because hardcore guilds couldnt do it. Blizzard say "everything is as intended" and Paragon succeed

    Its kind of like if you down the boss, its too easy and blizzard should make harder content. If you cant kill the boss, it must be bugged and impossible to do.

    Did U.S get Putricide down?

    If we things will get too far out of whack, we'll adjust them accordingly. In the mean time, focus on beating the bosses not beating your fellow raid members.
