With everything dead and no WBs up, we decided to go check out the new Hakkar.

I really think Blizz did a great job on him.

The fight is actually fun now and not just a snooze party.

Also it's a more fitting encounter for a end boss.

I would imagine that ZG aimed guilds will have their hands full with him now, which really is the point of a endgame boss.


Oh, and healing tanks when Hakkar goes supreme is FUN :)

Aye, i like the new hakkar. Its a fun fight.

I also like the new epic drop rate. 5 epics (non primals not inc hakkar) in one run FTW i say.

He definately feels more like an end boss now, not just a bag of loot. Fun fight, would still like it to be a bit harder to be honest (we had a fair few cock ups on our first kill of new hakkar, and still killed him).

But yeah, massive improvement on the old version.

-_-, we killed all but hakkar on that run, just got a sick amount of bijous and not a single epic :\

Hakkar was just... meh, and when he enraged he 1shotted the entire raid :P

Asura? Block of Ice?
I think you're thinking of the wrong mage ^^

One just assumes that mage + surviving 10 seconds = ice block.

Hakkar was "hotfixed"... less HP now...

After careful evaluation of the Hakkar encounter, his hitpoints have been reduced slightly to put the fight's difficulty more in line with what was originally intended. The hotfix has been implemented and those attempting the encounter should notice the reduction in hitpoints.

They nerfed his HP last maintenance though, so the fight is not as hard as just after 1.9.

Yes, apparently they nerfed him after he was defeated by CoI this one time... :roll:
