"the ubiquitous partially-complete instances with a dense carpet of skeletons."With a giant cockroach on top.That first week of the first half of Heart of Fear in LFR was not fun. I remember giving up on Garalon after 5 wipes with a 40% player turnover on each new try.
I think this is a fascinating dev blog. We don't often get to see the thought process behind changing specific mechanics like this. The part about Ring of Frost being really tricky to change because 'easy' solutions would have wide-ranging new problems is really interesting.
Haha, that Garajal gate exploit - I did not know about it. Ever since we started heroic progress on it (3rd week I think), I suddenly discovered that boss can run past the gate and it would reset. It's really shameful how many times I used this forceful reset over the course of these months, and it's really shocking to know that it was based on bannable exploit. It works as a reset\\worked the bad way for Blade Lord Ta'yak too.Also - nothing about hotfixing Amber-Shaper's Combustion? Not even a hint about current, ehm, Tsulong situation?
It takes some skillful person to try to come up with "new" things. lol
