Tonight my best friend and I attempted to do Herald of the Titans with our discord community and we were unable to help other players obtain the FoS due to the excessively large amount of damage Algalon does. The damage from the collapsing star explosions for the most part felt manageable, but when combined with the incredibly high amounts of melee damage Algalon deals to tank players, tanks were getting 1 shot nearly ever single time. Aside from the combination of abilities, the guardian druid and blood dk tanks in our groups were getting destroyed by Algalon’s melee damage before they could acquire enough stacks to taunt properly. As a community, we are not asking for Agalon to be nerfed to the point where he is no longer a challenge; however, with the way Algalon is in his current state, it’s not possible to obtain Herald of the Titans because the damage going out on the tanks is too high.

Just to be clear, the excessive amount of tank damage was not due to lack of optimal gearing. Both my best friend and I make sure each of our raiders is as optimally geared as possible and we have even created resources such as wowhead guides to assist our raiders with preparing for Herald. Last expansion, we were able to help countless members of our discord as well as members of other communities obtain Herald of the Titans and we hope to continue to do so. However, until something is done to bring Algalon’s damage back into a reasonable range, Herald of the Titans is not currently possible.

For reference purposes, here is the vod of our attempts. As I gather more data from other communities’ runs, I will post them on this thread as well (though it seems I can’t post links from warcraft logs here).

Just following up here that changes went live yesterday that should address these issues and make Herald of the Titans obtainable again. If not please let us know so we can look into that :slight_smile:
