Nice. Would love to see Necrotic and Grievous nerfed to the ground (or removed completely) as well.
Now do necrotic next. Nerf that #$%^ affix already.
Now just get rid of tyrannical and fortified. Create something in between.
Necrotic isn't bad, it already got its nerf. There has to be some challenge to a challenge mode. The debuff immediately falls off after combat, just pull smaller or kite better.
Dammmmm, now get rid off necrotic and we are gucci.Hope they remove affixes and add new ones, like they did this xpac. Every new xpac new afixes.
but does another bolster stack refresh the duration ?
Interesting duration. 20 seconds is equivalent of four deaths which is just a little better than a full wipe. I'm interested to see how extreme Bolstering can get in the MDI now that it's only temporary.
Cool, nerf necrotic already or just outright remove it thx
The new/old color value on Raging looks weird and slightly confusing :D I know it "makes sense" when going from 75 -> 50, but I think it's still clearer to just do 7550
I've said it before and I'll say it again, nerfing for the sake of nerfing isn't good. The bolster change is welcome, and an affix that used to be extremely restrictive and unfun now has multiple ways to outplay it and different ways of still keeping huge pulls and being capable of keeping up with it if you're skilled enough.Raging though... Idk. The nerf from 100 to 75 was already unnecessary. Raging was a free affix if only you had a single soothe those weeks last season. The huge glaring issue is that you mixed FORTIFIED with it. Fortified is a base +40% so that coupled with raging made mobs like Raging Mask in DoS literally one shot my healer. But in tyrannical weeks it'll a nigh non existent affix. Might need to get a little more technical with the changes imo to not completely trivialize an affix half of the time. Just my two cents. Nerfing just cause isn't healthy for the game. Making grievous for example not deal any dmg wouldn't be healthy, instead add ways to work around it like this Bolstering change. Have your own self heals contribute to it, or add a similar stack-drop mechanic to necrotic that you could drop on your own if you play well enough. But raging seems very weak in tyrannical weeks right now
Now if only they could replace tyrannical with something else, and tone down necrotic.....
The way I'm reading it is its a permanent health increase but a temporary damage increase. Correct?
Nice change, especially to Bolstering, but would really, really love to see Necrotic get nerfed. It's just not a fun mechanic whatsoever, and any week it comes up, it makes me just not want to run keys at all.
