May 3rd 2011 1:54AM Hotfix for the hotfix, seems to have fixed it.
May 2nd 2011 3:45PM I apologize about the use of you're instead of your. Should have proofread my post a bit. Doh.
May 2nd 2011 3:42PM Just thought I'd add that ZA - Akil'zon - is now broken. VERY geared group, DK tank, Arms Warrior, Rogue, Hunter, Disc priest heals. Most 355 item level or above. We're in vent, we're used to working together, and it was a wipe fest.
Brown birds, hitting for 15 - 17k rapid fire. Hit box on the boss is too small to have three people in melee range not stack the debuff. Having one melee outside running around killing kidnappers doesn't work either when you're getting hit for 60k every few seconds and the kidnappers go too high for melee to help effectively anyways.
We tried killing birds, not killing birds. Having one melee stay out on kidnapper duty, everything we could think of.
After about 15 attempts we brought in a second hunter to replace the rogue, one shot no problems. Yes we've done this instance before the hotfix. The hotfix on the 29th made it far worse. You're experience in a group with 1 tank and 1 melee, doesn't count. You're experience before the hotfix, doesn't count.
Short of shear luck, like never having a kidnapper grab your healer, and everyone's procs lining up just right, this fight is nearly impossible for a group with two melee dps.

Nov 12th 2008 8:23AM I was on last night, knew the bug was up, because frankly people were shouting about it in trade chat, but resisted the temptation. To be honest, it was fairly easy because there was no way I was risking a ban on my account the day before WOTLK comes out. Admittedly my guess is that based on the last few days of log in queues, bad patches, latency, and random server restarts... I doubt the game will be "playable" for any of us for the first few days, but at least I will be able to log in and pitch of fit with the rest of you as we run in circles in Shat complaining about how we can't play!
