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.

        We're revisiting Pandaria in Patch 8.3, so Blizzard added a new soft pink recolor of the good old serpent mount to the game. The source of the mount is a placeholder and unknown for now.
        Chalcedony Cloud Serpent
        The gentle Chalcedony Cloud Serpents love to play in the petals that fall in the Arboretum, coloring their scales a soft pink hue.

        Hallow's End has arrived on live servers and there are no notable updates this year. The Headless Horseman's loot has been adjusted to item level 395. Check out our Hallow's End guide for more information about the event.
        Blizzard (Source)
        It’s time for Tricky Treats, costumes, and—of course—the return of the Headless Horseman during this year’s Hallow’s End!
        Hallow’s End celebrates the break of the Forsaken from the Scourge.
        Fun and mischief reign as the Innkeepers of Azeroth give treats, and tricks, to whomever asks.
        The spookiest time of year has arrived once more, and the Headless Horseman rides forth to strike terror into the hearts and minds of Azeroth’s citizens.
        When: October 18–November 1
        Where: Trick-or-Treat throughout the inns of Azeroth, Northrend, Pandaria, Outland, Draenor, and the Broken Isles (Dalaran) for tasty treats and currency to buy Hallow’s End delights.
        All together now! —the Headless Horseman is back to set fire to Razor Hill and Goldshire once more. You’ll need to lend a hand on the bucket brigade to put them out and face the infamous rider.
        It would be a lovely time of year to take a stroll through the Scarlet Monastery’s Graveyard if the Headless Horseman hadn’t decided to make it his new lair. If you're lucky and succeed in routing this menace from within, you may ride off with his steed.
        Throughout Hallow’s End, characters level 20-120 will be able to queue up for this ghoulish encounter in the Dungeon Finder.
        This year you’ll be able to exchange your Tricky Treats for a newly added 2018 toy:
        Headless Horseman's Hearthstone Head to Val’sharah to undertake a quest that begins with the Hag of the Crooked Tree in Bradensbrook. Follow the tale through to its culmination and you’ll receive some Tricky Treats and a chance of receiving one of four utterly bewitching hats.
        Hat of the First Sister Hat of the Second Sister Hat of the Third Sister Hat of the Youngest Sister ACHIEVEMENTS
        There are a total of 21 achievements that can be earned during this event. Completing the Meta-Achievement, Hallowed Be Thy Name, rewards the title: The Hallowed.

        Ny'alotha, the Waking City comes with a raid skip and once you defeat the first boss, you'll receive the raid skip quest and must collect 4 Corrupted Flesh Samples from the raid's penultimate boss to gain access to the skip.
        Players on 8.3 PTR discovered that once you defeat Wrathion, you will receive the "Ny'alotha: MOTHER's Guidance" quest, which unlocks a raid skip, granted that you've defeated the raid's eleventh boss, Carapace of N'Zoth, four times. After that, you should be able to skip straight to Carapace of N'Zoth without having to deal with the rest of the bosses.
        Ny'alotha is a twelve-boss raid and it's a good thing that they decided to include a raid skip.

        Cross-Realm Mythic Eternal Palace opens next week and Blizzard just announced nerfs for Lady Ashvane and Queen Azshara on Mythic difficulty to go live with it on October 22.
        Blizzard (Source)
        Hello!
        Earlier this week, the Mythic Hall of Fame for Azshara’s Eternal Palace reached its capacity, and guilds around the world have until the next weekly reset in each region to earn their Feat of Strength. At that time, Mythic difficulty will become available to cross-realm groups.
        Along with the closure of the Hall of Fame and the Achievement, we intend to make the following tuning changes during weekly maintenance in each region:
        Dungeons and Raids
        Azshara’s Eternal Palace Lady Ashvane Lady Ashvane’s health reduced by 5% in Mythic difficulty. Waterlogged periodic damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Rippling Wave damage reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Queen Azshara The "Stand Together!" and "Stay!" decree combination is no longer possible in Heroic difficulty. Overzealous Hulk and Tidemistress health reduced by 10% in Mythic difficulty. Draining Azshara’s Ancient Ward now reduces its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Empowering a Ward of Power now increases its energy by an additional 5 points in all difficulties. Healer-specialization characters are now less likely to be targeted with decree combinations that include “March!” in all difficulties. Short Circuit now drains 10% less energy from the affected Ward in all difficulties. Essence of Azeroth now has an increased duration if there are fewer than 20 players in the raid in Normal and Heroic difficulties, and lasts 30 seconds (was 25) in Mythic difficulty. As always, we’ll let you know here if we decide to make any further changes.
        Thank you very much!
