imho something has gone wrong with Vortex Pinnacle. Bosses are way too easy, definitely much easier than trash. Hope it will be more challenging in heroic, 'cause the place looks fantastic.
Ok - so it wasn't me then. I've only run 4 of the instances so far (Throne, Blackrock, Stonecore and Pinnacle), and I actually found Pinnicle the easiest of the 4 of them but I do particularly enjoy the super mario brother-ish jumps and pinball effect on the tornado's that get you to different platforms.. :)
So far, I think they did a great job on the look of the instances I've run so far. But the throne and Pinnacle are my favorites so far. It's nice running an instance in the bright sunshine and an aquarium, instead of the dark, dank dungeons.
But as far as what you said about the Pinnacle - if heroic isn't too much harder, this may be the UK of the new expansion...The one that when everyone is running heroics a year from now to get their valors, they say "YES!" when they see the load in screen, because it'll may be an easy, fast run.. lol :)
mmmm, tbh each time I got UK I screamed "boooring!" :D
VP seriously lacks in boss mechanics. On Normal they don't deal enough damage to force players to use strategy. And the last boss, with the pyramid drawing... that's just silly. I mean, why would a boss create a safe spot for you prior to his most powerful attack? It doesn't make any sense :-)
On the other hand, I find the last three regular instances (grim Batol, Lost City and Halls Of Or.) to be extremely satisfying. Hard to master and actually exciting to beat.
As a tank, it's a thrill to see the healer scream "OOM" with the boss still at 50%, then pop all your DCs and once you've gotten down to 3000HP see the healer back to half mana and able to heal you again.
Sure, it's harder now but it makes each boss encounter worth remembering.
