Now would be an excellent time for some new JMod Events? We could do a mass for Nex so that players like me could try out this new Boss without hindering any groups. Please Jagex allow more JMod Events.

Thank you and stay safe.

I really like that Jagex left the graphics pretty simple. Given how much pvm has advanced since 2011, I have two suggestions to improve Nex.

1. I think Nex's
shadow smash
delay be shortened to 2 ticks. Currently it is 3 ticks and people these days are capable of casually switching protection prayers within 2 ticks, let alone simply moving out of the way. This will make attention slips a bit riskier. Perhaps we can shorten the delay for
blood sacrifice
and the
curse as well.

2. I think Nex's bodyguard mages need protection prayers, particularly protect range for 40% damage reduction. Range is functionally OP at many bosses given how players today can just sit back and camp twisted bow, bow of faerdhinen, armadyl crossbow w shield, and essentially outlast most bosses, taking minimal damage.

Players today play very casually with all of the maxed gear very widely available. I think shortening the delay for certain attacks will make up for preserving most other features.

It'd be nice for the delay of
ice prison
to be reduced as well. You won't have 3 seconds to get out of the way; a long time for player reactions in 2021.

I've been really enjoying killing Nex since the release. I like especially how the difficulty can be easily scaled up or down by having bigger or smaller group and yet still having a chance for drop whether you're MVP or not. I think it's my new favorite PvM content to be honest. Well done!
