Palantir leaks suggest the new raid will feature 4 main bosses/encounters.

Bad omens... TLDR : no challenges in the raid, no class set bonuses

7. Will the new raid have ‘Challenges?’ or because of the introduction of tier 3, the only things that are changing in tier 3 are numerical - the morale/damage of the mobs? Or can we expect to see extra mechanics?

The current plan is to continue with Tier 3 instead of the time-consuming older method of T2C. By shifting to a tiered system it allows us to provide more content to you. That said, we appreciate your feedback.



8a. What was the reasoning behind moving away from class specific set bonuses for raid armour?

I don't have a specific answer, but will speculate that this was due to our wider efforts at both item, class, and game balance, and to have those items have more value to more players.

Like i said to Mindarfin yesterday in Kin chat: T2C is actually T3, nothing is missing from the old days, they just made it that Challenges can no longer be Optional to choose if you wanna do them or not, now you have to do them in order to finish the fight. Same goes for the greedy question people say about: Oh, we do not have enough loot because we just have one chest now. The Chests now are basically two chests stuffed into one (Favoured Chest).
They just made shortcuts for the old system. The game performs the same.

Even though that was their intention, it seems they forgot to add the challenge at T3. Mechanics are the same between T2 and T3 (with a flat increase in damage/morale). Examples:

- Karazgar has the same mechanics (adds, bleed, invisibility, bubble, etc). In T3 you just have to deal with them cause they do more damage. Same goes for the rest of the bosses (with the exception of the dwarf-king, where you have to deal with all 4 adds concurrently).
- Glimmerdeep bosses: exactly the same, just more damage.

No idea how different is the T3 fight in Caverns, as I don't really want to go in there Razz From what I've heard though, it's again the same just with more damage (which makes you having to heal the stalagmite to avoid the damage from the boss).

Is T3 harder? Of course. However, essentially, it's got the same mechanics (which you just skip in T2 cause of low damage). Challenge was supposed to add a layer of complexity to the fight and that's why it was so loved by the community.

Taking challenges out and now the class bonuses? Seems they're trying to strip the game of all its flavour. Soon, instead of raid bosses with a story we'll be fighting Fire-Dragon #13 Razz

As an afterthought, it's amazing how much space this guy wasted in the forum to not answer ANY question. All of his responses are vague and generic.
