      I’m looking for the Blaze ability and can’t find it either. Google, ZAM, and wikia have been no help.

    So : no more factions needed to get the epic weapon 2.0 !! why not running instances in solo one instead of heroic KA ones ?

      The faction removals were for the fighter epic 2, and they still need 50k Shields of Maldura, 40k Sel’nok Brigade, 40k Clan Skleross, and 40k Legion of Danak.

        I already had 50k with Maldura. Wasn’t looking forward to those last three, but then again, I never did any JW quests. Thought Thrael’Gorr might be kind of fun actually because I didn’t spend much time in Eastern Wastes. The Hole factions would have been a pain, especially since I maxed Underfoot on the low end.

    Glad for reduced hitpoints on Iksar Hero. Skyfire had, for the most part, all but given up on the PQ… If you don’t get a full raid there within first few minutes of it starting, there was no point in trying. Don’t want easy mode, just want doable.

    Not sure if the other two needed lowering, though, but I know if it’s not an overly dps heavy setup, it can take a long time, but still doable. Not a bad change, imo

      I gave up on them because everytime I showed up, the mobs were always insanely durable and never dropped. I spent like 30 minutes on the Fens raid once.
