In reviewing the the plans for Update 1.5, I wish to raise concerns about the new planet bossing getting harder after each kill. Will this be based on the group or in general? Thus several groups can cause this guy to die over time and then a new group comes along and have a extremely difficult encounter with him.

What are other peoples thoughts on this and how it will be placed out.

If there are no players in the immediate vicinity, the boss's stacking difficulty buff resets to 1. So, this really shouldn't be an issue.

He also drops a "dreadful essence" consumable. When used, it'll make him more powerful. The stacking difficulty buff is temporary, and I don't know if the dreadful essence is tradable. It shouldn't be too much of a problem by the sounds of it.

It does beg the question of can someone grief the raid fighting him by running up and applying some of the dreadful essence buffs and thus whipping the unprepared group?
Not sure exactly how that's going to go.....

From my experience today, Dreadtooth is spawning with 1 stack every 30 minutes, whether you kill him with 1 stack or 2 stacks.
