I'm glad to see some solid rounds of buffs and nerfs to heroic bosses, I'm hoping that this will make dungeons have a more clear and stable level of difficulty. There always seems to be a boss that is far too easy or far too hard compared to everything else (like the dragon in VP) and that puts much added stress on pugs.

YES! This! I've been trying to beat this idea into the head of my friends since the changes were announced. Dungeons have a really disorienting roller coaster of difficulty as it exists right now. Bosses go from ridiculously easy (Silverlaine, Ptah, Anraphet, Assad, Grand Vizier) to pug-shatteringly hard (Ashbury, Setesh, Altairus) and then back again.

Yes, it's a joke how the dragon in VP, with all the wind direction changes + tornados is several steps above the last boss of the instance. Either that fight is overtuned (too many tornados maybe?) or the last boss is incredibly undertuned.

I didn't know people thought Altarius was hard, he seemed like one of the easiest bosses to me o.0I once had our tank die because he got knocked off the edge and we had fury warrior throw on a shield and tank the boss just fine. On heroic. In a pug./shrug.

I don't think it's a hard fight just annoying and a bit random. If you hit a tornado you can have the bad luck to be flung into another then another and off the platform with a lightning bolt hit, you're dead.
