Over the course of Blackrock Foundry’s testing, we’ve made a handful of changes to encounter mechanics that are not currently being communicated in the Dungeon Journal. The Dungeon Journal will be updated with those changes in Patch 6.1, which is currently on the PTR, but we'd like to share those changes to minimize confusion.

Changes to the encounters that are already live, but not in the Dungeon Journal:
  • On The Blast Furnace encounter, Slag Pool is used on all difficulties; but the journal currently incorrectly suggests that it is Mythic only. In 6.1 the journal will accurately reflect that Slag Pool affects the Heart of the Mountain during Phase 2.
  • Hans’gar and Franzok’s Crippling Suplex ability no longer deals damage based on maximum health of the tank who was picked up. It deals a flat amount of Physical damage to both tanks who are thrown together. (200,000 damage on Raid Finder, 450,000 damage on Normal, 600,000 damage on Heroic, and 700,000 damage on Mythic)
  • Gruul will instantly regain 50 Rage if his Inferno Slice fails to hit at least 4 targets on Mythic difficulty.
  • Blackhand will regain energy after using Massive Shattering Smash if it fails to hit at least 4 targets.

Known issues that will be fixed in Patch 6.1:
  • When grabbed by Hans’gar or Franzok in advance of Crippling Suplex, tanks are currently unable to use abilities. They will be able to use abilities while grabbed in 6.1.
  • Flamebender Ka’graz’s Singe debuff currently appears as a dispellable magic debuff on unit frames. It is not intended to be dispellable; this display issue will be fixed in 6.1. 

Edit 1: Added an additional note for Slag Pool during The Blast Furnace encounter.
Edit 2: Updated Crippling Suplex with new hotfixed values.

Being unable to pop a defensive CD for the Suplex is a bit messed up, are we supposed to just get killed on every Suplex until 6.1?

Crippling Suplex's damage has been reduced via hotfix and is active as of yesterday.

  • Hans’gar and Franzok’s Crippling Suplex now deals 30% less damage, (200,000 damage on Raid Finder, 450,000 damage on Normal, 600,000 damage on Heroic, and 700,000 damage on Mythic).
