Well, these looked fun
More of a reason to skip the minibosses in high keys, just like Prideful. Design an affix then force players to avoid it, good job.
Some of them needed changing but the whole thing is less impactful and fun than pride was. Pride was punishing at tyimes when you got the percentages wrong but still bosses on Tyrannical were doable. These powers are lacklustre.If they allowed some fun gameplay, ie some anima powers from torghast for specs it would have been a more fun environment. It could even have been a way to level the playing field. Instead of a fire mage, balance druid, outlaw rogue/ele shaman, holy pala and vengeance dh they could have given some really non-meta specs like survival hunter OP powers to make them more attractive to the meta slaves in pugs.
Lol nerfing already so undertuned powers... Really? Season 2 M+ gonna be horrible...
It was pretty clear that all of these affixes would be nerfed. It was to be expected for pretty much all of them to be tuned down so much that they basically are just "deal a little more damage, get a little more healing". That's the Blizzard way.Really, the only thing I am looking forward to actually is NOT having Prideful anymore. Accidentally pulled one mob or one pack too many? Well your percentages are now screwed and you'll get pride at the wrong point in the dungeon. Often that's already a depleted key right there, even if you are at the very beginning still. That was anything but fun. Now you can at least be more flexible and spontaneous in what you want to skip or kill.Prideful on high keys kind of turned into this surgical nightmare of having to manage the perfect dungeon route, not a single mob too much from the first pull on.I say no thank you to the mandatory second bloodlust. Especially if you wiped on a relatively high key tyrannical boss.. now what? No pride, no BL. That's it. Your key is over right then and there 90% of the time.
Curious if the powers stack like they do in Torghast. Taking Champion's Brand 2x for +420 (kek) mastery while I'm above 70% health sounds pretty good...
And wow... really bummed that the +12% haste while taking 5% damage every 3 sec is a healer-only anima power :/
People are acting like Pride wasn't the first kiss curse affix... All the seasonal affixes until pride were straight up forced time losses / negative impact only. The fact they are even giving us buffs is a nice plus. They could have just made it "kill them or they add auras to the final boss".
Those are some substantial nerfs. Some look pretty lackluster now....
The comments in this post are hilarious, I bet you idiots just read like the first 2 lines or something and assumed they nerfed everything.
Blizzard: We're going to nerf the seasonal affix.Playerbase: You're gonna nerf Tyrannical next, right?Blizzard: ...Playerbase: You're gonna nerf Tyrannical next, right?
What are people complaining about? The common consensus with people actually playing is that they want to play the dungeon and not just around the affixes. Having a handful of them be so good that weeks without them feel bad was not ideal.
Then what did we test on ptr for weeks? All powers either got nerfed or completely changed.
