Still only 2 guilds beat the Avatar in the entire world even after the previous nerf. And he's not even the last boss. Blizz, why are you waiting so long to introduce nerfs.

at the end of the day its a challenge, i am sure blizz is aware of the difficulty and will nerf as and when they feel they need to. the game would be so boring if we all just one hit the bosses.

You guys really see this as black and white. It's gotta be doable only by the top 0.01% (That's the representation right now) because otherwise everyone would "one hit" the bosses.

 

There's a gray area, you know?

You have to remember how nerfs impact the world first race, though. By introducing too much of a nerf mid-race, you can very quickly ruin it. If, for example, Method spend a week wiping on Avatar, then it gets a small nerf and they kill it, fine. If you then nerf it further straight after, a guild might then kill Avatar after only 1 day of wiping. This then means that guild and Method are both on KJ, despite a hugely different length of progression on the previous boss. That difference has nothing to do with skill, but instead to do with Blizzard's interference.

      Shackled Ur'zul received a new color tint ever since we looked at Patch 7.3 mounts. The mount will be a 100% drop from Mythic Argus the Unmaker until next expansion.
      The 100% drop chance of Mythic mounts is always drastically reduced when a new expansion's released and the raid becomes trivial.

      A lot of dungeon and raid tuning today, as Blizzard look into the Cathedral of eternal Night, a bit more into Upper Karazhan and a lot more into Lower, as well as Harjatan and the Desolate Host in the Tomb.

      A first look at upcoming Antoran mounts from the new raid.
      Two new Antoran hounds were added in Patch 7.3 and they're sharing models with the Hounds of Sargeras boss encounter in Antorus the Burning Throne raid.
      Description
      Sargeras' own hound was maybe once a felstalker, but over the years the Dark Titan reforged and reshaped his companion into something much more powerful. When, at last, he was pleased with his creation, he set about creating more of the hounds, and imbuing them with shadow and flame.
      Antoran Charhound looks like Shatug and Antoran Gloomhound looks like Fharg.

      Images taken from our 7.3 boss models thread
      The mounts (or at least one of them) might have a low drop chance from Sargeras's dogs encounter in Antorus, just like Abyss Worm from Mistress Sass'zine.
