Tindral Sageswift remains alive and well, cementing this race as a 2 reset affair! In today's RWF Recap, Dratnos and Tettles discuss the incredible difficulty of this boss and compare it to previous bosses of similar difficulty like Halondrus, as well as other penultimate bosses like Stone Legion Generals, Rygelon, and Fallen Avatar. Fallen Avatar holds the crown for pull counts in the modern era, but Tindral is hot on its heels and with a hundred or so more pulls could take the record.
Further nerfs to the boss could of course interfere with that, but Dratnos and Tettles expect that those nerfs won't come until after Liquid and Echo have killed the boss.
Though Tindral is certainly a difficulty outlier, it's unclear if that's a bad thing, as the majority of the players fighting the boss are having a good time. Bosses that are brutally difficult and unfun, like Stone Legion Generals, are certainly a problem, but when they're hard AND fun it's great! The difficulty, of course, needs to be carefully tweaked over the coming months to ensure that it's killable for the guilds reaching it later, to avoid the problems of the first few months of Seplucher which killed several guilds.
