    Default Please fix Port Scion (rushing boss)

    Scion is totally sucky right now. Every game, both teams just rush the boss and whoever has the most dps wins in under 2 mins.
    Hell I don't even wear PvP gear anymore, since nobody even gets First Blood most of the time.

    Is this a warfront or what?! Where's the PvP?!

    Bosses either need removing totally from the win possibilities or something needs changing to stop rushing them. Something needs to stop this warfront being just a PvE DPS race.
    It's no fun at all to play.

    I honestly have no ideas which kinda sucks.

    Your own Bosses health should be shown at all times when it's under attack so you know whether you need to defend it.
    That 'might' help in that one team would know they are losing, so come to defend rather than attack.. unlikely though.

    Maybe bosses could be immune for x minutes at the start - but would that just push back the rush until exactly that minute ticks over?

    Any other ideas?

    They're buffing the bosses health next patch.
    People should probably look at the PTS part of the forums every now and then.

    But it's so much easier to just complain about it.

    Ah that's gd, I've never looked at the PTS forum since my thinking was those changes are not final or confirmed.

    I still hope the UI shows when it's under attack and the health.. imo those are much more important than just giving them more health.

    Personally I think those mini-bosses need to hit harder or do more AOE attacks in addition to the HP boosts.

    personally I love this approach to this wf. Those long drawn out hour long matches are just horrible for low ranked players and net almost no favor or prestige for such a ridiculous amount of time.

    They seriously need to implement a time limit for this wf.

    Yeah.

    So there will be 4 minute boss rushes instead of 2 minute boss rushes.

    How about, oh I don't know, camping on your boss and using him to help you wipe the rush?

    Just a crazy idea, I know.

    I cringe whenever i see that port is the daily pvp quest =/.

    I love how port is the only wf were i have to sit for 30mins in a losing game from begining to end. Really hate them buffing bosses hp; i rather get the map over with fast.

    Port is why I think they need to monitor raid makeup when form a PUG.
    Basically, just spread the Clerics around so each side has a chance at winning.

    Increasing the health will not change anything though, if people are playing it as (who has more dps wins), then it will still be the same thing just a bit longer?
    See you all in Wildstar!

    For EACH boss mob.

    So I guess it depends on whether you stick around to kill the sub-Bosses.

    So.

    Have the boss inactive until the 2 idols are down and the attacking side has controlled the bridge. Then you can get your body count up.

    Im not sure how to feel about the Endless quest, the other chest quest in that zone, but the other 3 are important.

    OR.....

    Let the boss be attackable from the beginning, but if the idols are not down, then his hp is higher by at least 100%, and only really starts fading when the idols are down......during which time all subbosses are hunting the aggressors, and must also be dealt with.......thus, 2 idols giving boss a 25% hp boost(each), and 2 subbosses giving 25% hp boost ( each) - I can't remember off hand if there are 2 or less sub-bosses, sorry.

    I actually like the ability to Boss-Rush; cause Im usually doing PvP dailies and WF while waiting to do things with my guildmates.
