There's a bow on Tortos. It might not be an upgrade depending on what you have, but it's there.

The ToT ones are totally unnecessary at this stage.

It's the worst of the ranged weapons. Not one you would want to spend a bonus roll on. The squid-on-a-stick from Durm is the best.

For us. I expect Blizz would only make these big blanket nerfs if they're seeing a notable proportion of guilds getting stuck on Horridon, Council, and Tortos (even we got stuck on Tortos for a while, and still don't kill it cleanly).

Yeah, so anyone getting stuck on Horridon or Council is likely just failing execution (though TBH the Sul-nuking strat that gives the cleanest kill is not the most obvious strategy), but Blizzard don't like to leave people stuck for too long or they lose players.

But we're only 6 weeks into the tier. We were only stuck on Tortos for a week and on Durumu for two. Hell, that's not even "stuck" that's just learning and executing the fight. "Stuck" is when you spend a month on something that goes nowhere.

i agree it does seem kinda early
if anything i would have almost prefered a trash nerf
but that is just me saying that due to only raiding one night a week and unless we one shot hte first boss, we spend most of the rest of our night getting TO horridon and not working on him (ToT for 2 hrs and then old content for the next 2 due to one of our raiders having to go to bed)

Amirya:Why yes, your penis is longer than his because you hit 30k dps in the first 10 seconds. But guess what? That raid boss has a dick bigger than your ego.
Flex:I don't make mistakes. I execute carefully planned strategic group wipes.
Levie:(in /g) It's weird, I have a collar and I dont know where I got it from, Worgen are kinky!
Levie:Drunk Lev goes and does what he pleases just to annoy sober Lev.

We've only just gotten to the stinky Troll Council last week (yes, I know, we suck), and while we spent two of our three nights on them, they didn't seem completely insurmountable as they were.

But w/e, I'll take the nerf. At the end of the day, I care more about killing stuff with my guild than doing it first or best.
