We've opened the first wing of Highmaul Raid Finder (Kargath, Butcher, and Brackenspore) for the weekend. It's quite likely that these encounters are overtuned for the intended audience, but we'll be watching closely to make the required tweaks to get the experience to where it needs to be. In general, Raid Finder should be no more challenging than it was in Mists, so please tailor your feedback regarding tuning accordingly.

We have a hotfix going in now to adjust Brackenspore, removing the healing effect from Moss and generally reducing the health of most enemies in the encounter.

Highmaul seems to be open (before Twins) so technically he could be the first boss.


Ye but its very wierd that Tectus is simply not there. The achiev is called the Walled City after all and thats clearly the "first floor" of Higmaul. It would be senseless if the second wing started on Tectus and had the other 3 bosses when the area where the last 3 bosses are situated is clearly distinct from the area of the first 4. just make it so that the first wing has Kargath, Tectus, Butcher and Brakenspore and the second wing the other 3 bosses.

We changed the wing structure and the achievement hasn't been updated yet - that's fixed next build.

The first wing consists of these three bosses. The second wing consists of Tectus, Twin Ogron, and Ko'ragh. There will be some obstacles to bar your path when this is all finalized, and the zone-in location logic is currently letting you wander around parts of the city that should be inaccessible. Converting a non-linear layout into a linear path for Raid Finder is nothing new (e.g. the door to Blackfuse being locked when you queue for Underhold, or the entrance to Spoils being closed for Downfall). We want to keep Raid Finder wings to 3 bosses maximum unless we have absolutely no choice, to help keep the time commitment for doing a wing to a reasonable level.
