    Default New Sliver "Grim Awakening" Available on PTS

    Hey everyone, we've opened up the new sliver on PTS for your testing pleasure. You can find the entrance in Kingsward around 4550, 8620. A few things to note:
    • This is a Tier 2 raid meaning you will need 500 toughness and hit.
    • There has only been a small amount of internal tuning so far. Some abilities will hit too hard, some not hard enough.
    • We're trying new methods to make testing easier/more fun without needing constant developer supervision. Let us know what you think and if there are other things you would like to have.
    • Even though you CAN disable all the base population we would like it if you tested it at least once.
    • All of the bosses have had VFX passes except for the final one, his are placeholder at the moment.
    • There will be bugs.

    We're probably going to try and get another PTS patch later this week to get the numbers in a better spot along with fixing any egregious bugs you may find. PM Halvon or myself with feedback.

    Thanks,
    Cyzo

    I guess it's time for me to stop passing up the raid drop rings.

    dammit!! I just Runebroke my 65hit neck since the BiS was crafted ;)

    Time to stockpile my hit runes for selling day 1.

    This was not expected to be tier 2...wow.

    I guess the drop upgrade ability does make for quicker 4/4 sets which means more guilds are properly geared now for tier 2 by the time this drops.

    Surprised Tier 2 coming first. Is this the first time we've seen a 10 man in the new tier prior to the 20 man?

    Yes

    GP/DH came way after GSB, Rotp came after HK, PF came after ID.

    The "exception," if you will, is TodQ, since everyone technically raided that before the 20-man. (Though it was released simultaneously with FT)

    I recall, though i cannot cite it directly, that the ideal was to release the 10 man first then the 20 man but that the 10 man idea got traction too late to catch up without altering their content release schedule, which is planned well into the future. Looks like it finally caught up with the expansion clean slate.

    You can macro the feedback now to save time:

    "Is this intended to be 10% or 5%?"

    As an alternative you might want:

    "I suggest a multiplier of N to the current debuffs/buffs when patched to the live servers"

    Fill in N with w/e suits your fancy and divide by two for the euro conversion trolololol

    For those testing, is raid gear available to bump us to 500 hit/tough if necessary? Or is this only open to those that have that level of gear already on live?

    slivers are alternate endings to the 20man
    only makes sense this way
    also the hit req will ensure a large portion of the community ..well at least the part that wants to be in on this level of content... will be ready for the 20man as opposed to just resting on 420 laurels
    who took my names!
