Just curious about 8man Dread Guards, what are the DPS of your 4 dps at enrage? 2500 each? 2800?

The best run I've seen so far in the streams had Kelsara enraging are ~50-60%. In that fight the top dps was at 2422 dps with the others not terribly far behind (I forget the exact numbers but i think they were all between 2250-2400). Given the down time while DPSing down Ciphas' shield, that's pretty substantial.

This actually makes me look forward to the content more than I was before reading about the roadblock.

Well, at least bioware did what they should do, start it at impossible and slowly tune it down, instead if making it too easy and lots of guilds clearing it in the first few days

I agree. We've had the other extreme for too long.

difference between hard and impossible

the healing check alone in the fight is a fun challenge, not easy but still doable and only the top tier healers are going to be able to handle it.

You mean difference between hard (mode) and nightmare?

I know you guys want to unseat us as the top PvE guild on The Shadowlands , but in it's current state, this fight is mathematically impossible given the enrage timer. Everything else about the fight is PERFECT.

I would like to see everything about the fight left as is, but increasing the enrage timer.

Managed to get it to around 60% with tanks constantly DPSing the correct mob, healer adding DPS whenever possible, and AoEs on phase 3 hitting Kel'sara and the 2 spare adds after controlling them and DPSing the caster solo. Still enrage.

Seems a couple of guilds are skipping the second boss now in HM and continuing in nightmare, I presume that won't count towards the world first clear.

I'm just busting balls

We're going in as 16 off the bat this round though; so we'll see if the trend started in SV has continued.
