I'm just talking from a healer perspective, the damage on the PTS was never very challenging to heal through and I figured it was because they hadn't tuned it as they would on live. But it seems basically the same, I don't think they changed the damage at all. Except for last phase of Brontes I don't think any of these fights have a healing check, and it makes me sad.

The fights do not challenge the dps either. Very disappointing.

Took us ~2h to kill Bosses 1 up to 4. Really disappointing. Well, at least we know that Brontes is hard. So maybe she makes up for the letdown on the first 4 Bosses.

I only took a Screen with Timestamp for Zero, as the race isn't actually a race anymore cause it's a) to easy and b) a lot of guilds could start before us.

Anyways:

Correction, only the last phase of Brontes is remotely hard. It actually feels like Nightmare power is bugged/not operating correctly since things seem to die quicker and hit softer than most of the stuff on the PTS when we were playing with > 200ms.

Yeh have to agree, now with a normal ping it feels a lot easier than on PTS. Can be however that our high experience on the Bosses let it "feel" easier. I still think that it would take some time for groups to kill these bosses if they face them the first time now.

Still, the overall nightmare quality feels really bad now if you compare it to SV and TfB nightmare...

That's a very good point indeed.

It's also the reason there is no true progression race in this game. If you've downed the bosses on the PTS and then clear them again when they go live thats not progression for your guild/group, thats closer to farm lol.

Yeah I'm in two minds. On one hand I really want to give feedback to genuinely improve the fights but on the other if one guild goes on the PTS, practically every other guild has to to remain competitive.

Granted S&V no one got passed Thrasher on the PTS, that was a fun race.
