    Default Sicaron 1.4.1 hotfix #7, nerf of buff?

    * Sicaron
    - Slightly reduced Hit Points.
    - Increased both frequency and potency of Unholy Contract.
    - Eye of the Void frequency increased.

    Ok, less hit points is a nerf, eye of the void frequency increased is a buf but... Increased both frequency and potency of Unholy Contract is a nerf or buff? The "potency" of unholy contract means the damage you gain from the blue bubble or the damage you take when your red bubble goes out? And more frequency means u can stack two blue bubble(+100% dmg)?

    Relative difficulty will involve the question of, "Does the increased damage reduce the encounter time enough to offset faster placement of the idols?"

    I'll let you know later.

    Unholy contract potency increase is a nerf to the boss.

    Explanation: the contract buffs the damage of any rain member standing in a radius close to whoever has it (it's a blue circle). The unholy part is that when the buff runs out an "icon" gets dropped, nothing about increased potency would make this part worse as if you lay the icon down on someone it's pretty much insta death anyway. There's a bit more to the mechanic, but this is why this is easy a nerf to the boss

    More contracts = more RNG on if your purgers get called at a bad time, which most good guilds can deal with anyways though. But yeah, 4 million less hp = a lot easier.

    looking at him right now. 14.9m. Practically everything is the same about him except that there is now less time when the boxes are red so gotta add a little extra time for the running to corners if not using competence.

    Less time? The unholy contract is a 20 seconds buff, and when u reach the second 5 the blue bubble convert into red blue and you need to move out. Is working different now?

    He means.. is the timer on the contracts shorter. Aka it used to be 15 seconds of blue, 5 seconds of red. Is it now say... 10 seconds of blue, 5 seconds of red?

    Were on Sic right now so i guess we will see shortly. Confirmed his health got nerfed to hell. 14.9.
