    Default Fragment of Kaaz'ra Sucks

    I'm not usually one to complain, but I just spent a half hour doing Fragment of Kaaz'ra on Faeblight and the multiple raids of people were able to get the Fragment to around 88 million health before it failed. The eggs phase is beyond tedious, the mini bosses take far too long. The last boss itself wouldn't be too bad if you could clear the eggs and mini bosses in a respectable amount of time. Nerf some aspect of this thing down because as it is, it's not worth even trying.

    It is rather long-winded.

    Most people ignore this event now because of how long it takes to complete. The adds hit like raid bosses, and as youre Killing the eggs, adds randomly spawn and **** anyone in melee range. Its nice that you can get a relic quality costume cape, and ive received one from doing this event, but I wont even bother doing it unless the boss is already up.

    I rather like the idea though, but the four spawned mobs could probably scale a bit less. Not sure you should change the fragment itself though - it's so much fun seeing people get one-shot because of them trying to ignore the damage reflection ;)

    Of course, I'm a sucker for punishment.

    Just a quick follow-up on this:

    We've made some changes to the NPCs that spawn out of the Roe of Kaaz'Ra so they are far less punishing and have less hitpoints, making them less of a death sentence if you pick-up aggro.

    Across the board we've brought the hitpoints of all the Colossi that spawn during the event down to much more reasonable levels to allow for ease of completion.

    Last but not least, the hitpoints on the Roe of Kaaz'Ra have also been reduced to a far lower number.

    These changes coupled with the rewards on the event and the (new) time it takes to complete, should make this a much better Risk vs Reward for those of you that have been avoiding it because of the unintentional difficulty.

    You should see these fixes in the next scheduled patch.

    Thank you very much for your patience!

    Awesome. I apologize for saying the event sucks -- it wasn't a constructively worded title. The quick response to this is really amazing, don't ever stop the great work you do.

    At least, make the rewards worth the effort.

    Instead of making this just another zone event, you could have kept the difficulty, removed the mob respawns, and multiplied the rewards by 4-5. This would have made it a unique, worthwhile event instead of just another easy 300 stones.

    Honest opinions are great, it helps us to take notice of issues with the game that need to be addressed!
