First of all, this is not one of the "OMG 2 HARD NERF NAO" threads:) However, I hear some people saying that they cannot do dungeons after patch while they perfectly could prepatch, that vet dungeons had been buffed. I cannot confirm this because I never did vet dungeons pre-patch.
I did however try them after the patch. And...um. Well, that was a REAL challenge, to put it one way=P I have my own group, we've been playing together for quite a few dungeons by now. We steamrolled through Coldharbour dungeon with dying like once or twice only. I like to consider ourselves good, but THIS...we tried once at vet 1 and got REALLY wiped at boss #2(that was Spindleclutch, mind you, but we did try Fungal with same result). We came back with better gear/skill and got wiped again, this time on boss #3, or its ads rather - never even saw the #3 Spindle boss trigger, his ads wiped the floor with us. We came back again at vet 2-4(3*vet 2, 1*vet 4 me(healer)) yesterday and WE DID IT. Gods we did it. But it was definitely not easy. We made all new supercool gear, got our stats/skills up, made strategies, used potions...the ads of boss #3 are still almost unbeatable for us. They had us like 12 times before we got them - just barely, too. It doesn't help that it seems we had remains of wave 3, wave 4 AND boss all on us at the same time by the end of it.
After that, Flesh Atronachs are a joke, and last boss is perfectly doable even without killing his heals. But the ads...I cannot for the life of me think of a better way. My resto staff is 50, I like to consider myself a pretty good healer but I cannot heal THAT much damage from 50 ads running around. And then they have healers, too. We did CC them, we silenced them, we tried our best to avoid their aoe, it's still incredibly difficult(but possible...you have no idea how happy we were when we finally made it xD).
So my question is, is it supposed to be this way? The dungeons are supposedly vet 1-5, I certainly cannot see them at vet 1, atho I did hear some people claim they did it then. Has the difficulty been increased after the patch or is THIS the actual way it should be?
And tho I plan to NEVER return to that dreadful place again, if you managed the dungeon easier than us, please share the secret for beating ads of boss #3=)
