Massive Kil’jaeden Nerfs

The most difficult bosses in Tomb of Sargeras have received some long awaited nerfs today: Fallen Avatar and Kil’Jaeden should be a bit easier to overcome now.

Especially the Kil’Jaeden changes were already overdue. Almost four months after release, still only 220 guilds have defeated big red on mythic difficulty.
