Brutallus encounter hotfix


A few days ago it was reported on the PTR that those dastardly evildoers of dastardly deeds (aka: Warlocks) managed to enslave Brutallus. These vile locks then took their newly enslaved demon out to play. And playing for a creature of pure darkness means letting them wreak havoc onto the unsuspecting citizens of the Isle of Quel'Danas. I would have expected a hotfix to this almost immediately, and some form of public announcement that the bug has been fixed. However as of Saturday at 7 p.m. EST, there has been no such luck. Instead, Blizzard decided to hotfix the Brutallus encounter inside Sunwell Plateau, the new 25 man raid.

The hotfixes Blizzard has given the encounter are:

  • An overall health decrease from 11 million to 10 million.
  • Meteor Slash damage increased from 10,000 to 20,000, with the duration doubled. Meteor Slash will now hit you 100% of the time, no exceptions.
So an interesting hotfix for those of us trying him out. Less health, but a heck of a damage increase.

If you've had a chance to play with this encounter, what do you think of it?
