    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.
