Read more carefully. Before it was possible to climb a cliff and run to Kephess door with skipping about 3-5 trash packs, depending on picking the chest in between or not.

Stealth nerf is called because it wasn't said in patch notes. And yes, 2nd commendation chest is bugged for all.
I can only please one person a day. Today is not your day, and tomorrow does not look good either.

I'm sure it was never intended to be able to skip the trash - why would it be? The only reason to be upset over this change is because you've gotten too used to doing it the easy way. This isn't a big deal and probably took no time at all for Them to fix. Was it nice being able to skip? Of course, but youre crazy if you didnt realize you were taking advantage of an oversight. No reason to make a big fuss over it.

2 frownie faces isn't a fuss. its just an annoyance. Trash packs are fairly tedious in EC. We enjoyed it while it was there (and honestly, it broke the tedium and gave people in vent a chance to laugh at each other for failing to jump, that was the most enjoyable part)

Wheres the stealth nerf to skipping EC trash? or KP trash?

Trash is part of the game, no issues there. ToC was horrible in design because it was a loot pinata in both normal/heroic with a solid guild. We one shot Jaraxxus 25 the 1st night of release and didn't know a single mechanic, learned as we went. I do think the trash in EC is a little too much currently, and can do with 1 less pack before ZT, 1 less for 2 Tanks, 3 less for Minesweeper, and 3 less for Kephess.

ToGC was ok, it was innovative for its time. the champions fight was a real eye opener for a lot of people who simply didn't understand pvp, and having to use more than their primary buttons.

the real key to trash, is tempo. having to fight trash to get to a boss is ok, but not when everyone feels like they're dragging an anchor behind them while getting there.

i agree with your number of trash drops. it is such a groanfest after the tanks. f'n trash city.

it's like Bioware saw how short the instance was taking, and just threw in more and more trash until it was at an acceptable amount of time based upon their super-secret-best-in-industry-metrics.

There was nothing wrong with ToC it was fine for what it was meant to be, a filler raid till Icecrown.

haha the amount of time you have before you get instakilled is brutal too, you cant avoid a death if you so much as try to get up on the cliff now. At least if you try to climb over the trenches before vorgath you get a second to get down before you die.
Honestly if i was gonna nerf this I would have put an ambush up there and left it at that.

There was no time to put an ambush up there with the current system but is instead slated for 1.6 release after they work out the mechanics of how it would work, what teams would be involved, and then of course leaking information secretly on twitter.
