Eternal Palace Day 10: Limit in Phase 4 and 3 Adds Down, GM Calls for No Nerfs

Recommended Posts

While the title is slightly misleading, it would have been a bit too long with the full context: Limit have managed to push into Phase 4 earlier today, and also very recently had a separate pull with 3 adds down!

While day 10 was mostly uneventful overall, we did get some action towards the end from Limit, with a whole lot of excitement when they managed to get to Phase 4 for the very first time, with some pretty important information gleaned as well, that they tried very hard to keep secret. Now in that try, the 3rd add was still alive, but they made it to the console at the very end in an exciting finish, with only a few seconds in P4. But why narrate the event when we have the whole thing in a VoD:


10:30:10

We also had two separate 3 adds dead pulls, with the second being more recent, but both featured 3 very dead adds, followed by some very dead raiders:


19:14:14

We had two more major news for the day, as one set of hotfixes went live and another was announced for later today. The first one didn't have that big of an impact:

Queen Azshara

  • Cyranus should no longer throw his Charged Spear Charged Spear if he is defeated just before throwing it.
  • Changed the magic school of Charged Spear Charged Spear from Arcane to Nature for all difficulties.
  • Reduced the duration of Arcane Vulnerability Arcane Vulnerability to 5 seconds (was 7 seconds) on Mythic difficulty.

    But the second one that will be coming around 4-5PM CEST today is a massive one:

    Blizzard LogoJuly 26 Announced Hotfix (source)

    We have a hotfix in testing that we intend to apply to change the Queen Azshara encounter tomorrow morning (PDT):

    • Queen Azshara’s minions now Berserk after 3 minutes in Phase 3 of the encounter on Mythic difficulty (was 2 minutes).

    We’ll confirm when the hotfix is ready and going live tomorrow morning.

    Considering the thing that's wiping guilds is the 2 minute enrage timer, this one will change everything and will almost certainly see the top guilds progressing into Phase 4 and getting the boss down by quite a lot. Whether there's some more surprises waiting for us in Phase 4 (maybe even an additional Mythic-only phase?) remains to be seen, but it'll definitely be worth watching when those hotfixes arrive.

    Limit's GM also commented on the upcoming nerf, saying he didn't think it was actually necessary:

    And so we are on to day 11, which may turn out to be the most exciting day so far - whether there's a possibility of an actual kill isn't quite certain, but what is certain is that we'll be seeing more progress on the boss than we've seen since they first pulled her! Check out the action at:

    It may not be what was wanted hotfix wise but as mentioned phase 4 could hold a different twist or unexpected surprise that the top guilds will have to rethink their priorities again with the fight.  Nothing is worse than reaching past a 50% marker on a boss to use beneficial CD's, due to force circumstances, just to find out that you should of saved them further for a different set of mechanics of a phase.

        A calm week in Mythic+, where we see Windwalker move up in its weakest bracket and Fire actually see a drop anywhere, while Subtlety has a very good week and might be ready to dethrone the eternal blue king.
        Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
        This past week was Tyrannical, Bolstering, Explosive (and Tormented).
        All Keys
        Windwalkers return to the top 3, correcting their drop from last week while Subtlety actually comes much closer to Fire's eternal throne. Arcane rises two into the top 5, pushing Affliction and Balance down, as Shadow sees the biggest movement in the high percentiles, jumping 4 into 8th. Marksmanship drops one and Havoc gets in-between the Warriors in the middle of the pack , as the bottom 5 remain the same, with Retribution dropping to dead last.

        Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
        The all percentages bracket is starting to look more like the 95th, as Subtlety takes 2nd place here as well, but Affliction is still doing a lot better and keeps its 3rd place at least. Arcane is doing even better here compared to last week, jumping 4 into 6th, while Fury dropped 3 spots seeing Havoc, Unholy and Survival pass it in the middle of the pack.

        Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
        High Keys
        Fire hasn't managed to take over the +15s quite yet and the standings remain the same in the top 5, but 6th sees a big change as Havoc moves there, rising 2 spots. Survival and Assassination are the next to rise, 3 and 4 spots respectively, as Fury drops 3. All the specs are incredibly close in the 15s still, so even the bottom of the pack is doing really well here.

        Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
        Windwalker retains its No.1 spot in the 20ies and Fire actually drops a space, as Subtletly had a really good week across all keys it seems. Arms and Arcane both moved up, with the Warrior spec surpassing the Mage along the way. Havoc jumped 3 spots and almost made it to the top 5, while Assassination was the biggest mover, rising a whole 7 spots into 8th!
        Mythic+20 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
         
        For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well, which have tier lists, dungeon rankings and more.
