I'm guessing (ie: hoping ;) ) it's a bug, since I've not seen any blue confirmation nor anything in the patch notes. Unlike when they buffed Hakkar, for example.

Another nice bug - Time lapse now sets maxhp to 1 for anyone affected for the duration.

They become unsheepable once you've killed 4 yes....... that's normal :P

And the CoII team has been dispatched to investigate the Ony issue!

Time lapse actually makes the encounter significiantly less annoying. 50% hp and heavy aggro reduction on dps ftw.

As long as its not coupled with Ignite Flesh, time lapse is a god send for dps and makes the fight significantly shorter

Yes Onyxia seems erm bit harder now, but I'm not 100% sure its a bug even tho i'm hoping it its.
First thign you will notice that right after phase2 has started lot of whelps spawn, ALOT. I'd estimate around 15 and as we were quite unprepared for this, a blurry swarm of black death decimated some of our healers quite fast on first try.
Second thing was the deep breaths. I won't go saying she will breath no matter what as we had the whelps first which caused some chaos and after that came the first breath and the second and the third and the fourth. We did not do any extensive tests so additional breaths might have been cause by bunched up ppl or lack of dps, but she did do deepbreath ten times on our last attempt.

Some of our member claimed that its easy to avoid the breaths by checking which way the are going, now I clearly suck at this cause got burned on 1st breath everytime. Onyxia does not seem to be made impossible but lot harder. I'm guessing Blizzard got few up with the "how easy is onyx to do" threads and decided to give her a small boost so that ppl killing her would be worth of tier2.

And no, we did not get her down.

Yeah guess they weren't looking forward to the inevitable "5 man Onxyia kill!!!11one".

you don't suppose while making hunters mark and that mage mark thing not counts as debuffs they messed up the entire systems of defuffing her to prevent DB spam?

If she just do more deep breaths (as in the old days btw) - you just need to learn how to stand by her right/left side at all times to avoid it.

Seems fair to me since she has been nerfed into oblivion over the last 9-12 months (phase I and II that is).

Our guild went to her lair yesterday, and the 2nd attempt was heated by 10 DBs. :)

And I might add that having Ony do 10 DB in 1 attempt is a bad idea when you brought alot of new ppl along to show them what raiding is about :P

The COII team tried to 17-man her. Was not a good idea.

that means that we won't be able to kill her with 20?...

damn... 2 x 20 raids were so much better... twice as many Nexxus... :(

It's a bit trickier now...

1) Onyxia begins to take a deep breath.
2) Everyone runs to the sides.
3) Onyxia suddenly turns to a different angle.
4) Everyone goes "WTFOMGBBQ?!"
5) A second later, Onyxia exhales.
6) Fire. Pain. Horror.

On a related note, Nightspider & Goblins just killed Ony in her super-bugged mode. Took us only 3 attempts (could have done in 2, but she managed to go into Evade on top of everything).

Remember: When in doubt, throw several hundred GFPP at the problem! :D

Hmm... if they say that Chrom's Time Lapse is 'working as intended' as well, I'll be... mmm... surprised :)

EDIT: no, they confirmed that it's a bug. Thanks, Blizzard! :)

After seeing screenshots of GMs telling that controlling Scarshield Spellbinders constitutes an exploit, I became a firm believer in "If it's not blue, it's not true". :)

that settles it then... so now the question is... does she spam it more than is reasonable?
