And the amount of scaling has been heavily increased in 3.3, so it's even easier than in 3.2.2a.
Wicked idea, balancing people's hatred of the instance with their love of "phat" loot.
Cool they made it "better" or more appealing.But what they should REALLY focus on, is CoS. No matter what, it takes longer than 15 mins. Most annoying place ever, next to VH.
This is somewhat delicious.Will probably get more people running Oculus and Malygos.
This would happen right after I get Blue Drake.
Strangely enough, my first random heroic today was Oculus. And everyone was actually excited to be there.The bag is called "Blue Sack of Gems," and it must be looted from the chest manually by each eligible member, like how you used to have to loot the completion items for the daily heroic dungeon quests.Now to find an alchemist willing to give me their cooldowns...
this is cool an all. . .but omg occ is insanely easy now. . .imo it didn't need better loot.i've not had a wipe in this over the last few weeks, been in occ at least 10 times now.but least now there should be a lot less quitters, so that i'm looking forward to.
I never ditch occolus lol, but this will make a it alot more attractive then you get fail player in your grp. Thanks for pressie blizz!
Heh. A dungeon so unpopular they have to bribe you to run it!Hilarious.Reminds me of the joke about the kid so ugly his parents had to tie a pork chop around his neck to get the dog to play with him...
I might consider it if it was a frost emblem.
This is the direction blizzard should've been moving in for a long time, and I am very surprised at this action. I knew something was going to change in Oculus, because so many people saw it and bolted. Blizzard doesn't like people avoiding their content, so I knew something was in the works. To be honest, I expected a nerf, as that is there current M.O. Instead they surprise me with this wonderful surprise. Instead of lessening the difficulty, they are added more rewards. This is a great move and one I hope they continue. How much better would this game be, if the difficulties stayed unchanged but the rewards got more enticing?
err... are you serious? Occ was never bad, its only getting better because as gearscores rise, so will drake hp making it easier... only baddies left group anyway...
I'm pretty new to level 80. I've run Occulus three times, all through the Dungeon Finder. The first time, Eregos went down smooth as butter. The other two times? Somebody wasn't doing something right because we just had wipe after wipe. I'm not doing dungeon runs just to rack up a repair bill, you know? What does Blizzard expect me to do? Throw money down a hole whenever Occulus comes up?
i have run oculus once since tueasday, got 2 extra triumph badges and a bag of gems which contains 3 autumn's glow, no drake though. i think by defination, rare gems means 2nd tier gems, the ones u cut into +16 hit , +20 spell power, im jc myself, "rare gems " doesnt likely contain epic gems.
