Blizzard announced on Monday 3/11 that they had reduced the health of the Gurubashi, Amani, Drakkari, and Farraki adds on the Horridon encounter.
We’ve been attempting Horridon, for 2 nights now, and we didn’t have a clean transition from Gate 2 to Gate 3. We still had 3-4 mobs alive when gate 3 opened, and it would soon overwhelm us and wipe us. At 25 wipes in the first week of 10 Normal, we were about to give up and wait until we get more gear upgrades.
However, Monday’s hotfix, brought new hope and we decided to raid and give this more attempts, even though it is usually an off night for the group. The reduced health of the adds makes the transitions really smooth, and we had the boss down in a couple of attempts. Woo hoo !
For those wondering, our group has an average ilevel of 492-494 – and no heroic gear from tier 14. So this boss is now possible to kill without having an ilevel of 502, as was previously required.
Next up, Council of Elders, but before that it is time to hit LFR today evening and get some upgrades.
