i think you should be able to pug a normal raid, heroic i think should be more difficult, but 200ilvl loot means 180-185 gear should be able to handle it... that is not currently the case
No, the raid isn't overtuned. People are going in undergeared and not doing mechanics. They go into the raid after 2 weeks of mythic dungeons not properly geared and expect to do content that drops 20+ ilvls higher than the garbage gear they have. If blizzard caves and nerfs the raid, then people will complain about it being too easy in a few weeks after getting gear with better stats.
From a scrubs perspective, the fights don't seem overtuned at all. People just need to git gud.
This article thinks it's about the game. Actually it's about the players.
Which is a good thing. Heroic Sinseeker was doing like 15k every 2 seconds for 30 seconds, to 3 people. 184 item level only provides like 25k hp. This meant that even if each Sinseeker victim was getting an assigned healer to focus them, you could still potentially lose people to getting hit by any other mechanic - or just being unable to ~60% heal your target every 2 seconds for 30 seconds straight, then switch to the next victim for the entire fight length.
true, Normal feels "harder" then normal nyalotha was. we did out first raid today, we alreays clear normal once (sightseeing, get used to some mecanics) then we stick to HC and go into Mythic after a while and then clear mythic.we did 5/8 last night, 2.5 hours, and sure it wasnt "hard hard", but there deffintly is some mecanics that we already se can be really hard in HC already. i get a feeling that this will be a GREAT raid tier, and the mythic race will be amazing
I'd love to see Wowhead distance themselves from RMT and FatBossTV. All the advertisement's in LFG are for them. There are better sites to partner with if absolutely needed for video guides.
"as players get legendaries" many of which are in the overtuned raid.
