They still spawn fast, I was just lvling there a day or 2 ago... took awhile to break the cycle considering they just didn't stop spawning (you can see some standing around) I had to slowly move away from the building haha
very nice. I had a pathetic roll on ours tonight
Yeah I had a low roll as well. But I'm happy our guild got it! I plan to do the 10 man 3D this week as well.
Let me know how 10 man 3D goes. we've still only done 10 man 2D, gotta work on our setup more.
How was it broken?I'd like to point out that this patch changed it and the method no longer works, and was never intended to be the way to get the achievement. ;p
Some people felt that the requirements were too difficult, there was a decent advantage to be gained by bringing three death knights and 2 or more druids. The strat involved stacking ~4 sparks give or take one and burning him down when he takes off at 50% and hovers over the platform for about 10 seconds. 4 sparks increased damage by (1.5)^4 * 100 %. He would drop from 50% to 1% during those 10 seconds then you'd proceed to smash all the scions and nexus lords with that buff.How was it broken?
His fight mechanics were significantly changed to accomodate this new intended way of doing him. He now takes off at 40% instead of 50%, and power sparks now despawn after a set amount of time such that you can stack at most two or three. The timer for this achievement has also been increased by one minute.
So it wasn't 'broken', just too difficult and/or required a very specific raid setup.
Also, as far as doing the fight in a "normal" way, without stacking sparks, the timer was not really increased by a full minute. In the past, you could target Malygos during the phase2->3 transition, both on the ground for a few seconds, and then while mounted on the drake for ~30 seconds as he does his speech. Before, the only thing was he couldn't die during his speech, now you actually lose out on DPS time (this is also to fix the "I couldn't use my shield" problem that people had). They wanted you to have 5minutes worth of casting, and rather than put the timer at 5minutes and 43 seconds or whatever in the achievement, they put it at 6minutes.
So yea, sorry, 2 big changes went into the fight, 1 was their fix for the shields not working, 1 was their fix for 5minute Malygos not being done as intended. The change to 6minutes was to make the fight still possible, instead of a 4min20sec requirement.
Thought they added MC orbs now so you didn't *have* to have priests?
Oh, well alright then, don't mind me
