Do they really think XT-002 needs any more nerfs? Your group should never get hit by gravity bomb unless:A. They're retardedB. You get EXTREMELY UNLUCKY with a grav bomb right as a tantrum goes off, but even then it is possible to get away.

Are you stupid? We run 2 25 man ulduar runs and XT has hit someone with GB and Tantrum each time. Having that amount of damage is retarded.That is not challenging, it is just killing off players because it is not tuned.The bugged trash pulling a dozen robots at once what challenging? That is also retarded.Nerfing untested trash content is not a bad thing as you still then have to defeat the boss.We joke in our guild that some trash mobs should drop badges/ilvl219 epics as they are stupid retarded.Quit whining about it and comeback when you have defeated all the hard modes of all the bosses in ulduar.

Gravity bomb does not do that much damage to the player, and they have ample time to move out of the way. The only time it may kill a person is during tantrum which shouldn't happen (although it bugs out occasionally). The trash before XT-002 is different. The stratagy is you actually have your raid move far, far back and then have something like a druid kite it. The little mechanical gnomes that pop those shields up move VERY VERY SLOW giving you ample time to just aoe down the rest of the easy trash (just make sure to watch out and kill razorblade). You can then deal with gnomes easily.really the trash was different, not impossible. Yes, my guild wiped on it 3 times before figuring out what to do. And as far as the "lol go do hard modes" argument... just stop it. It's a stupid argument in this case because I'm not complaining about the overall difficulty of ulduar, I'm just stating that XT-002 was perfectly fine for an average raiding guild to take down. I am in no way a part of an amazing guild. We have 6 bosses down in Ulduar 25 right now which compared to top guild progression is a bit behind.Really my only point is that XT-002 doesn't need to be nerfed anymore. Gravity bomb is an easy mechanic to deal with, its people who don't move that pay the price.

Once we dealt with the bots we moved to the gnomes and they were kind of spazzing out spam casting the defensive shield in packs of 2 (which never actually went up until we started attacking them). Considering that they spazz out when they try to exit XT's room and move perfectly fine when you try to engage them from inside the room I'm going to take a wild guess and say it's wasn't intended to do the kite to Vael's room strat.

It's easier to have a hunter or mage kite the gnomes away from the group, take out the salvager (they throw the saws, doing a lot of dmg), then take them out one by one, having the kiters bring the gnomes back last.

For us it just looked like their mechanic is to just cast that shield every few seconds or so. Bug or not I thought it was interesting.
