Blizzard has released another hotfix that nerfs some of the bosses found in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. These include the adjustments for Anduin Wrynn and Rygelon.

Anduin Wrynn is a popular figure in WoW’s lore and he is the eighth boss in the Sepulcher of the First Ones raid. That said, it seems that defeating him is now more achievable due to the changes he received, especially on normal and heroic difficulties.

For one, his Wicked Star ability, which not only damages you but also renders you unable to cast spells and abilities for a short period, has its duration reduced to just two seconds. On top of that, both Anduin’s Hope and Anduin’s Doubt have their HP and movement speed reduced by 20%.

Rygelon is the penultimate boss of the raid. The Dominated Constellar may be easier to defeat on the mythic difficulty for a number of reasons. First, Rygelon’s HP is reduced by 6%. Second, the damage of Stellar Decay and the health of Unstable Cores have been reduced by 25% as well.
