We’ve downed him in the last two weeks, but it’s a really frustrating fight for melee so here are some recommendations to make the fight more friendly to melee.
If you don’t know what the fight is, go look up a guide… jeez.
1. Instead of having Thok gain speed as the pursuit phase goes on, have his fixate slow or snare the target in an incremental manner. This means Thok’s speed does not increase so melee can keep up with him and it still keeps risk on the pursued subject. Yes, they can still use movement cooldowns to help. Again, the fixate gets incrementally more slowing so you still have to end the phase before it becomes unmanageable.
2. Increase the hit box for this mob. It’s not really all that large despite the size of the mob. Durumu had a bigger box *giggle* than Thok does and Thok is far larger. Yes, it encourages people to get closer to hit him… well, melee, range pretty much doesn’t care.
Note: Item 2 need not be done if you do item 1.
Melee happiness increased.
