So, I went back into Vet. FG today (this morning) with a group to help them out a bit. They were all new so I was explaining the boss fights to them.
When we get to Vila Theran, I find out that the shackle/sword phase no longer executes you and the beam phase does not require as much distance as before.
Also, Ciirenas the Shepherd's spider pets die as soon as she does.
I mean...I don't remember seeing these in patch notes. Sure, they are minor changes, but it makes the fights easier...I think it was an unnecessary nerf, in my opinion. These dungeons need to be challenging...don't nerf them like that.
The Vila Theran fight really upset me...I did that fight the "hard" way. It was fun working out the mechanics and it made me not only a better player personally but a better member of a group.
