Well, here is my theory on this.
In the same interview, he says that Bahamut's Coil is harder than The Crystal Tower. Well... CT is coming in patch 2.1 "sometime in 2013."
If it's considered easier, it probably has lower iLVL gear. This gear is probably a gap in content, like Ilvl 80, while the gear in Bahamut's Coil is iLVL 90 (The alaggan items in the latest DAT mine).
So I imagine, that the people who clear it will have to do so with iLVL 70 gear, making it much much harder until patch 2.1.
Just my theory.
Ugh, so they're doing what they did in XI with the Adoulin Delve vs Skirmish vs Bayld gear cluster@#%^?
SE: Release the hardest content first! Watch them struggle hahaha.
SE two weeks later: Oh wait, there was an unexpected exploit and now our player base is divided into haves and have nots! NERF IT... but don't roll anyone back. Everyone else complaining, you're doing it in the wrong order. Go back to Neo Nyzul Isle before you try this Extremely Hardmode Content (that is now easy mode for the Haves.)
Merf. We're still
recovering from that. Edited, Aug 23rd 2013 5:22pm by Catwho
