    Default Fragment of Kaaz'ra event... it needs a change or something

    So, I am sitting here on the hailol shard... looking at the Fragment of Kaaz'Ra zone event. This event really needs a retune on the starting phases.

    - HP on the "Roe of Kaaz'Ra Foothold" needs to scale much less when there is a much lower population on the shard/zone.
    - The initial adds that are active... swarm in droves and appear to not respect Anti-planar/holy champion being active. So it's the full on damage once you attack a Roe/Foothold.
    - Adds that appear to spawn every 10% from the five individual footholds need to have their damage retuned.

    It just feels the overall damage for this event is a bit too high for the general level of the ashora zone.

    When I jump to multiple shards during the evening/morning hours on the Deepwood cluster, and see no one participating in it, or even wanting to remotely participate in it, that's concerning enough that this event is not worth the effort. Making note, this event lasts for an hour and 20 minutes - and i see no one even remotely poking with it 30 to 45 minutes into this zone events duration, is very worrisome.

    I'm not asking for it to be soloable, i'm just asking for some of the damage to be tuned down or the population of NPC's around in the vicinity to be slightly reduced.

    I think cut the health of the Roe and the sub-bosses that spawn when the Roe are killed in half, leave the last boss the same. Then it'd be doable. As it is, it's just the most tedious thing ever and then it fails. :/

    Hey guys,

    Let me talk to the team so we can remove the suck and put in the fun.

    Thank you for the feedback!

    Just a quick follow-up on this:

    We've made some changes to the NPCs that spawn out of the Roe of Kaaz'Ra so they are far less punishing and have less hitpoints, making them less of a death sentence if you pick-up aggro.

    Across the board we've brought the hitpoints of all the Colossi that spawn during the event down to much more reasonable levels to allow for ease of completion.

    Last but not least, the hitpoints on the Roe of Kaaz'Ra have also been reduced to a far lower number.

    These changes coupled with the rewards on the event and the (new) time it takes to complete, should make this a much better Risk vs Reward for those of you that have been avoiding it because of the unintentional difficulty.

    You should see these fixes in the next scheduled patch.

    Thank you very much for your patience!

    The changes to this might be to little to late. I have tried to get this event done since it came up and only one time did I find a raid there that end up giving up due to lack of time left. Now when I go to check if a group is there whenever its up no one is there. It's a fail event. People don't go near it anymore.

    After the changes it is absolutely doable - I ran into the event with a twink two weeks ago, there where only 18 people engaged, and we finished it without a wipe at all. Only problem is that it still takes very long to complete, plus it's hard to find people who are willing to do it. I suppose this is because nobody who did it pre-nerf will ever do this event again

    I ran it a couple of weeks ago oand I'll be honest. The only reason why I completed it was to do that daily quest in Ashora where you're meant to kill 100 architects. Even then, well, due to the fact the quest just about completed with just two colossi to go it shows how the event is. It was iirc a raid of around 15-16 people, some left and joined so not necessarily the same people. and it still look over an hour on a fairly populated shared, too.

    The problem is I think people want events like the Dendrome hunt ones. You get quick, fast and clear stages and the whole thing takes less than 30 minutes. The Kaaz'ra one really feels like wading through fudge, and I felt a masochist for staying that long. I don't see anything wrong with making world events challenging, but this is still flat out boring. I can't think of anyone in their right minds who want to sit there for an hour killing well over 100 elite architects where stones etc could be best earned elsewhere.

    This might seem a bit negative but...yeah. It's probably something I'll avoid too from now on.

    To necro this thread, is this event no longer in game?

    Following a bout of eternal weapon zone event farming, this is one of the few zone event achieves I am missing. However, searching the last month of rift zone announcements on discord, I don't see it having popped once in europe or na? Or does it operate under an alias or with a trigger?

    (And I'm referring to a zone event in Ashora, not the zone boss in Dendrome. I think).

    Yikes!

    Devs, could you move the achievement to legacy so that it doesn't taunt me? (or feel free to re-enable the event -- what could go wrong...)
