There is no way its operating as intended.

It ticks for:
3,536 in 16M Story
3,598 in 8m Hard
6,413 in 8m Story

No way they'd design SM to tick harder than HM on purpose.

Bumping this thread, my guild had similar issues with SM Dread Fortress. The surprise enrage was particularly annoying.

If this is the nature of the mechanic then I am happy with Affliction ticking this hard.

It forces tanks to prepare for HM and not be a derp.

Bioware, any word, please?

SHORT VERSION: Guardians of the Fortress are casting AFFLICTION that hits for 6k per tick on STORY MODE 8-man Dread Fortress while the same debuff is hitting for 3k per tick on HARD MODE 8-man.

NOTE: This is NOT the mass affliction cast by the Corruptors.
Good. Bad. I'm the twi'lek with the saber.
DPS: Carnage Marauder - Combat Sentinel
Tanks: Powertech - Vanguard
Healer: Operative - Scoundrel

Le Bump.

Some official confirmation one way or the other would be much appreciated; nothing in the patch today and silence from BW is not helping anything.
