The rng of getting these is going to be really annoying I can already tell...
The powers still seem very unimpactful overall in my opinion. Most of these won't change how you play or what you do in the dungeon.
Ok so volcanic nerfed, I get it, it was insanely strong in the previous build. Now, does the knock-up part work then?
i mean, instead of having a system over a system, and needing all the time and effort to balance it, why not have a simple affix and this indy company focusing on balancing specs and classes instead of wasting their time on borrowed powers? blizzard will never ever learn
One BIG problem at higher keys now will be that you are pretty much FORCED to do these mobs since they empower last boss ..... BUT the buff you get may not be as much useful. Just like with Pride, now you try to skip as many you can above level 24+ keys since the time it takes to kill Pride is not worth the static buff you get. In the case of Anima Powers tho, if you don't kill those mobs, the last boss gonna be pretty much impossible.Maybe a better middle ground solution will be to further nerf the buffs but let them scale with keys and higher the key, the buff scales % is reduced with each key level. Or have them NOT empower last boss, so if a team doing +25 key wants to skip them rather than spending 3 mins on each for some lame buffs, they can do so and consequence only being no extra self buffs rather than making last boss impossible.
Surprised that the Overflowing Chalice hasn't been nerfed already.The healer powers are very straightforward there's a clear better choice for each of the 4 bosses this affix will be quite boring for healers and make Paladins even more OP compared to other specs.
I just dont understand why they wont put in better affixes for fortified/tyrannical. How does adding affixes that affect health and dmg when we already have this via the key level we are doing it make it enjoyable? Why is it so hard for them to look at other games with similar mechanics and take inspiration from it, aka fractals from gw2 is a good start.
