Nerfing LM seems weird, it wasn't that tough on tank healers. The only thing i can think of is it is to make it more pugable for the weekly raid quest.At the risk of one of those QQing scrubs yelling for easier content - why not nerf 10man lady deathwhisper instead? :P

You are kidding, right ? My group found Lady Deathwhisper to be the easiest encounter on 10man.

In 25 man it was the opposite.Marrowgar was easy, Deathwhisper is much harder.If I were a betting man I would guess they nerf 25 man Deathwhisper next and/or fix Deathbringer so you can't get rid of the Blood debuff.

We one-shot 25-man Marrogar, but Deathwhisper is giving us fits. Getting all those adds under control is very difficult, not to mention getting them DPSed down fast enough to turn attention to the shield on LD.10-man Deathwhisper, my raid took her down in 2 tries, no worries.There is a huge difficulty gap between 10 and 25 for LD.

Sorro: I assume you're running 3 tanks in 25s? Don't even bother putting one on Lady Deathwhisper until phase 2. Your two strongest tanks go on the side alcoves, and your weakest one goes in the back, along with your best Hunter. Put Rogues on Deathwhisper, and maybe a couple other DPS (whatever you can spare without losing speed on the adds), and profit.That's how we did it and two-shotted it (first time we didn't realize an add spawned in the far back, lol).

Because 10 man Deathwhisper is WAY easier?Marrowglar didn't scale down that well, he was demolishing tanks. We actually had to 3 healer him, something which we didn't even come close to having to do in the rest of the instance.Deathwhisper in 10 man? One shot, with alts and friends who had never seen it.

No doubt that Marrowgar is easier than Deathwhisper in both 10 and 25, but Marrowgar's tank dmg was stupidly high for a 10 man. I had much easier time healing the tanks in 25 due to having more healers and them taking roughly the same dmg as the 10 man version.

I find it funny when someone in a guild with 25-man gear says how easy a boss in the 10-man is. I would hope so. It's balanced for players a whole tier below you.

LM is easy in general, once everyone understands his very basic mechanics he's a walk in the park.@Morcego: I think Lady Deathwhisper's difficulty -highly- depends on your raid make up. She was extremely hard for my group who had 1 range DPS and 5 melee DPS (we 2-healed so we could have extra DPS to get through her mana shield faster). I could see a good group with 3-4 ranged DPS though just laughing at Lady Deathwhisper; she's just not melee friendly.

When I said I wanted a new Nerf for Christmas I meant the MAVERICK 6 shooter (clear plz). Why are we getting nerfs already? There are 28 days for people to clear this content and most of us cleared it last Tuesday. Nerfing right off the bat will only create boredom 28 days...wait for it...later.

I am happy for this nerf personally.We have 2 groups going. The first group, both tanks are in ToC 25 gear, 2750 gear score, and with some good healers, they are able to kill Marrowgar but it is intense. Our 2nd group, we have 2 tanks around 2600 gearscore and try to heal them in painfully intense. The healers have to be on top of their game 110% and even then it is rough to keep the tanks alive.This nerf will allow our 2nd group the ability to continue clearing content so I vote Yay!

My guild mostly just runs 10s so that's what we're geared for and Marrowgar was our most difficult fight of the 4. Getting everything together for Deathbringer took more tries I think but there weren't wipes because a tank got 2 shotted like Marrowgar. We did end up doing 3 heals and it was still rather close sometimes on tank health. We still did it of course, but man, it was way rough.

Our group seemed to have more trouble with Deathwhisper than Marrowgar. I did receive a few comments from my wife (also my healer) that I was being hit like a truck by Marrowgar though.I don't know that either of these fights needed a nerf to be honest. Our guild is a fairly casual "friends" guild and we got both fights down. The wow-heroes gearscore average for our group was 2602.

Marrowgar made me regem EH instead of avoidance. 1k down the drain that will never be needed. I hope Arthas beats me up or I'll feel like I wasted money.
