Soa is a frustrating fight... frustrating mechanics and frustrating bugs to deal with. It is a very doable encounter though in it's current state... /shrug

we faced the pillar issue on 3 of our attempts the other night. Some attempts even had the pillar visibly hit soa, yet 3 melee who were standing off a ways (a distance that they stand other times with no issue) and all 3 died. Looks like the graphics arent matching up or something.

on something like 10 attempts (we are working on our first Soa HM kill as a guild), the pillar bug happened in 3 of them and two times in one of them. We, thankfully, did not experience the other bugs.

Wait you mean triple lightning ball ticks aren't an intended game mechanic?

Whoa, you mean the pylons hitting him aren't just a 75% chance to remove the shield?!


MADNESS!

There is no reason, at this point in the game's life that the first Operation they released is still this buggy. This encounter has been in the game for what, 6+ months?

The missing platforms can be avoided by manually resetting the instance after every wipe. Just have every wait outside before zoning back so the raid leader can do a reset and then go back in.

Funy last night was no option for reset instance. So from NMM we switch to HM and Soa was still hiting for same damage like in NMM. After few times try to disband ops, go to Karaggas go back, switch owner still no reset option we just giveup.

Which incidentally will prevent you from getting your speed run title. Better to just make sure no one uses exit area, and instead dies on every run. Cheer for jumping to your death!
