    Default Ultane's hitbox

    Why is it so tiny? Makes the fight annoying for anyone in melee, including the tank. WTB bigger melee hitbox please!

    Yes yes I know you killed Ultane walking barefoot through the snow gramps, doesn't mean the fact that he has a tiny hitbox isn't annoying. No reason us younger generation can't ask for improvements right.

    It's specifically part of the mechanics of the fight. Don't run out in time = death. Run too close to center during beam = death.

    What? Are you talking about Salvarola? His hitbox is fine. It's Ultane that requires you have to get way up too close and personal with him in order to hit him from melee.

    I have always wanted a bigger hitbox on him since way back, but then they go and nerf everything else about the fight not really much point, I mean everything in the fight is hitting for like as half as much as it used to, no one should be dying to anything.

    now the Hitbox on the 3rd add at abom make that as big as the 2nd add and I love Trion forever

    The Kain model has always had hitbox issues. Since Trion loves to reuse skins the hitbox stays the same.

    The last boss of one of those new raid rifts uses this model, i don't recall having issues with his hitbox.

    ... then again, I don't remember having issues with Kain or Ultaine either.
    So long, and thanks for all the fish~

    Why do you play melee if you can't adapt to a hitbox?

    It's fine. Every bosses hitbox is different, and you adapt to that fine (I assume...) why would this be any different?

    If you can't adapt to it, play a ranged spec.

    Play warlock, if you can't (because you're not a mage) then reroll mage. Problem solved.

    Wow it's wonderful to see someone of your generation be so supportive about people who aren't comfortable with the class they currently are and want to change to something else. That's not an option for me though, since the class I currently am fits me and I don't feel like I'm actually a mage forced into playing something else.

    So yeah your solution isn't really a viable option for me sorry or for anyone else who wants to melee Ultane.

    The answer was actually ironic and purposely as stupid as the question. I've asked one time to change the color of the beam of the fight because it was very asimilar to the green trinket proc (trinket that loot on ultane and proc that lasts 5sec). What was the answer ? Make a kalert, open your eyes more, etc. Yeah stupid too heh ?
    Same here, Asking for a QoL change on this fight ? Then stupid answer, not constructive etc. Because this fight (and/or the community ?) deserves it.

    Nothing personally, really.

    PS : optionally, I support your idea as the only time I've played harb on this fight, I suffered hell...
