[Frosthold] Secrets of Ulduar and Furious Gladiator Season - Ulduar difficulty!

Recommended Posts

Graal    139

Hello there,

It's just 5 days till Ulduar will be opened so maybe it is time to show you what we have prepared for this challange.

First and foremost, both Ulduar 10 and 25 modes will have only prenerf values with two exceptions: Yogg-Saron 0 Keepers and Algalon on 25 mode will be boosted.

Anyway, there are lots of general changes and we wanted to accomplish the following things:

  • We have rewritten melee damage value for all Ulduar's creatures according to our pre-nerf researches. Many of creatures will hit harder/differently than before.
  • Each boss has parry haste mechanic enabled except for Kologarn.
  • We have decided to boost only Realm First encounters (blue values) but it doesn't mean rest of hard modes will be easy. Prenerf statistics are tricky and most of you won't be able to complete Ulduar in first IDs. Blue values are related to 25 man mode only.

 

Full list of encounter changes:

Maybe, both Algalon and Yogg-Saron 0 Keepers will be boosted with one more mechanic. If we decide to change anything you will be informed.

Apart from the fact that we have focused on encounter changes, we had also put some minor fixes on trash mobs in general, for example:

  • Add Unquenchable Flames spell to Molten Colossus.
  • Rewrite Snow Mounds in The Halls of Winter.
  • Correct several trash scripts like Champion of Hodir, Faceless Horror, Clockwork Sapper or Magma Rager.

 

We really hope you will enjoy Ulduar journey :)

Best Regards,
Sunwell Team

Profound Darkness application is every 1200ms, not 2000ms.
Every Profound Darkness application heals Vezax for 0.5% HP
Can u add this to Vezax,at least make it a bit harder ????

Good buffs, but in my opinion Vezzax should either have boosted hp like on angra or the faster tickrate of animus aura with heal. Right now its gonna be easiest hardmode. But thats just my opinion :)

So how much hp is Thorim gonna have in 25m hm? :)

 

Should be 2.9m (10man) and 14.6m (25man) as it has no buffs on hit points.

Angrathar timers for Algalon and Vezax would be wrong, but other than that, I don't recall other custom changes Angrathar had that would alter the timers.

Hello there,

We will implement one more boost regarding Yogg-Saron 0 Keepers version on 25 man.
It has been already added to table on the first post.

  Yogg-Saron
Yogg-Saron Alone in the Darkness (25) Phase 3 starts when Yogg-Saron's Brain is down to 30% its health. Phase 3 starts when Yogg-Saron's Brain is killed.
Change is affected only to Yogg-Saron 0 Keepers version.

Table is now closed, there will be no more (blue values) added to this list.

Best regards,
Sunwell Team

I would like to correct you on one thing.

Hodir Hard Mode 

Pre-Nerf - 2 minutes

Post-Nerf - 3 minutes.

Can confirm that on wowwiki due to the history in retail WOTLK. Please fix it.
