Wow, did the Gunship battle in ICC need to be made easier? Seriously, thats the easiest fight in the whole place (besides Marrowgar, but its a toss between them).

I don't think this will really make it easier, just faster. Note that they just said the cannons are more powerful; I read that to mean both our cannons -and- the enemy gunship's cannons, so the net difficulty shouldn't actually change.

True, that could probably use a wee bit of clarification, I saw it more as "our cannons" since ICC has been subject to several re-adjustments in difficulty.The heat decay thing is definitely a buff in the player's favor. It doesn't go down as fast, which makes it more predictable, which means people will be able to hit closer to 99 before hitting 2, maximizing the damage from it. Its decay before would make it sketchy on how many times you'd really need to hit 1 to get it to the sweet spot.

The enemy gunship doesn't have cannons , it has Rocketeers.

The cannons were nerfed in 3.3 to do less damage and have heat decay faster. They are returning them back to normal.

@LathenaReally? Cause unless that was an undocumented change (and I kind of doubt it), it's not on the official patch notes from what I've seen.And yeah, that's why I said that, I never remembered the opposing ship using cannons, just the rockets.

Last time I did gunship battle my cannon seemed to have a double cooldown. When I would fire a cannon blast it would cooldown once and then cooldown again, so I had to wait double the normal time between firing. This made the battle take much, much longer than it should have (about twice as long). For a second I thought we were actually going to fail at gunship battle it was taking so long.

It was an undocumented change. Possibly unintended as well. It was a little harder to get the heat up to full to fire, and it felt like it took longer to fire every cannon ball as well.
