Lowering the difficulty will not change anything. People will just complete it for the achievement and that will be all. However, if you have content that is hard to do, people will spend much more time on it.
Yes but for how long do you keep it like this? Do people still do DF, DP, TFB, EC, SNV nim? Can only 1 % of the pop complete these ops? Definitely more then 1% can clear these and it's not just because of gear it's also because they have been nerfed.

But again, I don't care whether you want to nerf GftM MM after 6.0 hits. It will be way easier than before anyways because of the new tactical items.
I am giving you arguments and you don't really give me any back.
Ok I've misunderstood you all along I was of the assumption you were talking about after 6.0. Yeah at no point did I call for a nerf prior til then.

This shows you how easy GftM MM really is. We are in the process of proving that, expect results in 1-2 weeks.
Still proving?

I don't get it!? Why do you want to remove the title? Every server has at least 5 groups selling NiM Items and Titles. Why do you want to remove this title, and not all the others. You want to be special, but simultaneously you sell everything, that makes you special/what other players can't get alone. I don't see why this title is different?

I haven't cleared gods NIM so maybe I am biased to that, but something someone said here makes sense. Every other NIM has a chance to drop a mount or a gaurenteed drop. Since gods NIM doesn't drop any mounts unique to it, the reward for completing it should be the title unless a mount is going to be added.

That said, I think in 6.0 it should be made slightly easier, as many have mentioned just slightly less dps required on certain things and slightly less heals required. Anyone who disagrees I have to ask, is it not kinda dumb that some specs or even classes have yet to clear Nahut NIM? I mean I understand some specs are better then others for some fights but straight up 90% of the groups who have cleared Nahut ran atleast 2 PT DPS to do so. I understand what makes PT, IO, and Anni maras so good on this fight but I think a group should be able to run say a Scoundrel, Guardian, Sage and Commando and if all four have a mastery of their class they should be able to clear it. The fact that they can't constitutes a slight nerf in 6.0 or if you don't even want to call it a nerf, just when they rescale it make it not scaled quite as insane with the dps and heal checks.

If people really feel the need to feel more special then others in a video game, firstly I am sorry you have nothing going for you in RL! Secondly you can just brag about your "on tier clear" and make fun of those who killed in 6.0.

That's my two cents

I think the OP makes a great point and that many of the people who have posted in this thread are incredibly out of touch with the player base. I agree that it's absolutely a time for a nerf to NiM Gods and that it only makes sense to remove the Slayer title concurrently with said nerf. Up front, I'll say that I'm 5/6 on timed runs in 5.0 but haven't even cleared Tyth yet in NiM.

Many of the people posting in this thread are the ~100 people who have already cleared NiM Gods. These are clearly the best raiders in the game, and I think it's great that Bioware puts out content that's this exclusive for a period of time to give these players a challenge. However, it's clearly a sub-optimal use of scarce resources to tune the game towards these players indefinitely. While these players may be some of the loudest voices on the forum, they are by no means even a small fraction of the player base.

I think it would be a great idea to nerf NiM gods to make it more accessible to a greater percentage of the player base. This isn't going to destroy the raiding community - the older NiM raids are still played constantly. Recognize that even the people capable of doing older NiM raids is still not *that* high, I'd guess maybe on the order of 10-20%.

Overall, I think it'd be healthy for the broader NiM raiding community to have a newer, more challenging raid to progress through that is tuned for good, competent NiM raiders instead of the top 0.1% of players.

I think nerfing gods is the wrong way to go about it, it's a really hard raid to do, something people have been asking for. when it finally comes along, people want it nerfed instead of trying to get better and work towards clearing it. but, lets assume that getting good is not possible, a simple solution could be just allowing Nightmare Crystals to be used inside gods nim. but maybe not grant the Slayer title if crystals are used.
