    Default Regulos kite boss borked in last hotfix?

    Was wondering if anyone else had the issue of the kite boss on regulos hitting for 50k+ (crits), this is not something we had experienced before. We normally have a cleric and a chloro do the job but last night (after several one shots on the poor chloro) we had to start using 2 clerics with 400+ toughness.

    Adding toughness eliminated the one-shots but seems like an odd change if it was intended. Unless trion was trying to require real tanks on that platform (using the bridge bum-rush strat), would be hard for a newly-progressing guild to field 3 tanks and 2 400+ toughness clerics.

    Yes we actually had this happen to us last night - was going to post about it but then I forgot. Our cleric facing this issue had to put on a bunch of toughness gear and keep popping cooldowns on himself to keep it from killing him. Something is definitely out of whack. It may be a change trying to force an actual tank to be on that platform? However this is unlike trion because it's technically "buffing" the encounter.

    Same experience, our non-tank kiter got one shot by a crit. Ended up putting on some toughness gear and it was fine.

    Same thing happened to our kiters. Glad to know it wasn't only us that had that issue(not really an issue but rather annoying).

    I didn't notice anything too odd. I solo it every week as a 61 Defiler and I think the biggest crit I had was 13,996. Not wearing any toughness gear either. 2nd platform is done by a tank, so I'm sure the numbers I included below will be a bit skewed because of that.

    It did feel like the damage output was higher than average last night because I had to pop a CD at one point.

    Last night (both kite phases)

    Code:
     Ability		Damage Done	Hits		
    		Total	%		#      Avg	  Total		
    Attack		91,504	69.56%		23     3,751.09	86,275
    Spinal Wound	40,052	30.44%		12     3,337.67	40,052
    Last week:
    Code:
     Ability		Damage Done	Hits		
    		Total	%		#      Avg	  Total		
    Attack		77,863	71.66%		25    3,114.52	77,863
    Spinal Wound	30,789	28.34%		12    2,565.75	30,789

    If this was the case we didn't even notice since we have tanks do it anyway.
    Nope.

    Pretty sure this stealth change was just so the Devs could go, see you needed all those relic cleric tank wands and shields.

    No issues last night with 2x clerics alternating (non-tanks) platform 2 last night with non-toughness gear. This included 1 fail attempt sub 25% so 4x platform 2 kills

    The purifier healer (which was me; the one who eosmeep was referring to!) was having some annoying issues on the shambling mini-boss. The defiler healer didn't appear to have these issues, unless i was seeing things.

    Previously was being hit for 48 to 55k critical hits. I put on two 125 toughness pieces, and went on my way. When i did get crit, was being hit for 22-24k with toughness. In addition to utilizing most (read:all but one) of my CD's on the 54/22 puri/sent build. Seems this was a ninja change of some sort, alright... I will be sure to put more toughness on next week as a puri/sent! Apparently I am a semi-tank now.

    I did it as sent and our puri did it just fine. Had nothing more than a 13k crit

    Is there any reason not to do it with tank actually?

    When NQ did progression people got crit quite frequently.
