Timewalking Scaling

So something is seriously off with respect to TW dungeons this week.

The brute’s charge attack is doing substantially more damage than tank health, even when your back is completely against the crates. Even when doing this on a 20+ key, I never had to use a major defensive to survive the charge, but it’s now somehow required on a TW? It’s literally as though the boss is being affected by Tyrannical semantics and yet it’s TW.


The second boss slam is a high damage ability, but even with the same set of buffs up, no tank major defensives, it’s hitting the tank for varied amounts. Sometimes its upwards of 60% of my health and other times its only 15-20%, with no externals and no defensives used, just always having active mitigation up.

The third boss, its simply not doable. The damage output of the DPS is all lower than tanks, this causes a plethora of birds to spawn throughout the fight, despite them kiting them, and this just leads to eventual attrition and birds fixating the tank and causing a wipe.

I’m not sure what’s going on, but I don’t recall TW ever feeling like I was doing a +20 key and having to utilize so much control, finesse, and defensives; ergo, some scaling is clearly off in some of the dungeons and needs to be looked into.

Hey all,

We are aware that the gear level in Timewalking Dungeons is currently being scaled down more than intended. We are working on a hotfix and will deploy it as quickly as possible.
