WoW: Uber monsters get Uber-er


Via Wired, Game | Life:
World of Warcraft v2.0.1 is barely over two weeks old, but some guilds have already seen fit to trample all over the new raid content introduced in the massive update. Case in point: European guild Nihlium downing uber boss Illidan just yesterday, with Curse following hot on their heels.

As a response, Blizzard is going to up the difficulty level through what is perhaps the most tried and true method available: making it hurt more when the internet monsters bite you. According to Blizzard designer Daelo, the decision to tweak the affected encounters was based on feedback from guilds already progressing through the newly-introduced raid content. Said Daelo, in a post on WoW's official raids and dungeons forum.
This will really only affect members of big guilds, and in my view, it's a wise move. All those legendary creatures seem to be falling a little too easily these days (making them seem somewhat less legendary), and while the guilds in question are probably more than peeved, I think they'll eventually appreciate the new challenge.

Thoughts from some of you WoW players?
