Any idea why this change was made? Patchwerk has always been in his own way an 'iconic' encounter and in the current 10/25 man iteration, not too terribly difficult but a definite test for entry level raiders, healers in particular.
In this test, Patchwerk doesn't Hateful Strike but instead becomes increasingly more damaging as time passes.
I expect the number of players in Naxx to decrease significantly when 3.1 goes live and many people running it will be alts. Just....strange.
your hat may be nice, but I have the little white tank top that says Legendary right across my boobs. I win. (or more correctly, H wins)
