Every SINGLE one of my toons is getting one-shotted by Gaurrundar the Vile. Every. Single. One. If it's not him, it's the Wyrmspeaker.
I thought the whole purpose of Mod 16 was "balance." This game is NOT balanced. I get it's a skirmish and supposed to be tough, but I'm watching people drop like flies and we're eating pots or stones every 18 seconds while doing HAMSTER poor damage.
I play this game, 'cos I enjoy the action combat. I'm not BiS as I'm *NOBODY'S* slave. No one is going to tell me how to play a game. Not elitist players. Not Cryptic.
But I'm running a respectable 20k TR, with purple insignias, a Legendary Augment Companion, Rank 10s, heal mounts, etc and I'm watching myself get one-shotted, even when I dodge in this skirmish. My 19k GF is losing 70% of his health, when he's blocking, 'cos my stamina is completely drained in a single hit.
Cryptic, let me spell a few things out:
1. Not everyone is BiS, so scaling a skirmish to Level 80 and then NERFING the item level by 2/3rds is insane.
2. Not everyone wants to group as a lot of end game players are HAMSTER and if you don't play the way they want you to, they'll kick you out of the dungeon/skirmish.
3. I was under the impression that the whole reason we had the changes in Mod 16 was to keep end game players from ROFLSTOMPING end game bosses, but it's okay to let the mobs ROFLSTOMP the casual players?
4. 10 -12 pots for a 3 minute skirmish is just wrong. This is *NOT* fun.
