    If they go with a mind control affix, I doubt it would affect the tank. That would be a death sentence for higher keys where one melee hit from a Fortified mob can be enough to kill a DPS.

    ?

    Pretty much every affix is mainly for dps or tanks to handle. Where does Blizzard love to abuse healers?

    But a non bitter answer will be something that is a negative but has a positive attached to it since the last 2 seasonal affixes have followed that path. And won't affect bosses that much because that would make Tyrannical an even harder affix (that's why grevious is never tied to Tyranical). 2 sets of 2 players are chained together (like sludgefist) and if you don't break the chain for XX seconds you get a buff, but if you do you get stunned ... although knowing blizzard a nasty dot.
    Couldnt be more wrong. Playing with bad people in pugs means you punish yourself - not that Blizzard punishes healers.

    hmmmm i would guess a few things:

    every 20% forces Anduin comes and you have to stave him off until he reaches 75-50% hp before sodding off, and we get a buff similar to the pride buff

    random person gets MC'd every 5 minutes for 30 seconds, you can choose to CC or bring them to 5% (200-300% extra hp/damage) makes the pace of the pulls something to be considered.

    a "tower sentinal" is placed in 5 locations about the instances that reduce secondary stats by 10%, can choose to kill or leave them (like with season 4 BFA)

    I'm surprised so many people got triggered by my completely off-handed comment which was meant to be nothing more than a light-hearted joke.

    One of the issues is that they have to figure out a way to compensate for the prideful dps we will be losing. Trying to do many tyr bosses (at the appropriate gear level) without it is already miserable.

    Going through this list: https://www.wowhead.com/affixes
    Explosive: tank/dps.
    Explosives die in a single hit. As a healer if you're not helping kill explosives with some instant like frost shock, moonfire, whatever you're fucking up

    Even as a healer I acknowledge that tanking is a way tougher and more punishing job

    Looking forward to find out, loss of control if not straight up MC seems likely.
    If you knew the candle was fire then the meal was cooked a long time ago.

    a random mob in a pack gets buffed, whoever last-hits it gains some bonus damage/healing/secondary stats. Que dps drama.

    -A Mawsworn Soulbearer spawns when entering specific areas in the dungeon whom throws a chain onto every partymember and attemps to drag them with her, killing chains will remove this and force her to fly off emptyhanded. If broken free, gaining 25% movement and invisibility for 15 seconds.

    My dream.

    i really hope it won't be an affix with fixed % you need to have at certain points in the dungeons... i'm thinking about switching over to tanking in season 2 but if it's anything like prideful and you need to plan the route meticulously then i'll probably just not tank regularly...

    i think we won't get another "at x%, something happens" affix 2 seasons in a row.
    so most likely some new maw-type mobs that alter the dungeon similar to Beguiling
    or changes to existing mobs with a Domination-buff/debuff.

    i really hope it won't be a mind control, as those have the tendency to ruin CDs.
    saving up Combustion for that really dangerous mob in the next pull? let me waste it to cast 2 fireballs at the shaman and then sit in iceblock real quick.
    The above mentioned remarks, ideas and notions are simply my thought on this topic. I do not wish to aggravate, denounce or criticize anyone who, for whatever reason, may disagree.

    I hope it's not mind control because it would be just frustrating

    A boss in each dungeon has been dominated by the jailer? Adding additional abilities and working as a way to balance the dungeons more evenly by choosing easier / more difficult bosses based on experience in s1?

    Would so much rather have new dungeons. Mythic plus is boring :/

    But I am guessing it is some sort of blistering dot AoE or maybe a healing debuff.

    Well so far every seasonal affix has only been a trash thing, I don't think that's been a coincidence.

    In keeping with most boss fight mind control mechanics it would more than likely significantly increase the player's health and damage/healing dealt by them. Every other boss fight in the game has done that exact thing when a player got mind controlled. If they did add a mind control aspect as an affix then that would make sense. Group has to deal with a pack of mobs + someone randomly getting MC'd that now has as much HP as a boss and deals as much damage as a boss could spell out wipe.

    Probably something will mindcontroll you and after you got freed you will get a damage buff or something.
