    As a tank I love it. The Anima powers are small individually, but add up to a huge damage and survivability increase overall.

    Also, echoing what's been said, routes are far easier to plan out now and depending on affixes it's much easier to tailor your run for the best time savings.

    Oh and, omega pulls are awesome with volcanic knocking everything up lol

    Prideful was awful, routing it was a complete nightmare. I'll take this affix setup EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.

    Yeah after having this affix for a few weeks now I've learned to like it. I retract my earlier comment :P

    Full agreed, Prideful wasn't my fav - and I think it also comes down to the issue of me only ever pugging. Because I only pug, pushing prides past 16 was incredibly hard for me due to the fact that I heal and people wouldn't care how many stacks those pride got up to.. I was healing for 10k HPS for minutes at a time and people wouldnt understand why people started dying.

    I again just stopped at 16's last season because it was bananas how bad people were in the beginning. Now that this season has 20's for those teleports gives people incentive to push at least toward the end for 20's in time.

    Loving it so far. The mini bosses are much easier than Pride was and you don't have to worry so much about losing the buff due to it running out. It's also not tied to those 20%s of percentage. The effects are pretty funny, especially the volcanic one, the rest are stat buffs or shields which is always welcome.

    Might be my second favorite right after 8.3 m+ season, or possibly even top 1.

    Did like 30 keys and I'm always choosing the exact same powers - every dungeon. They should add way more powers and make it more random. Quite sure the intent was to choose but at this point, it's no more a choice.

    Powers are pretty bad, would be nice if they came up with newer ones every month or so, but they won't do that.
    We've only ever had prideful in SL dungeons until 9.1. After running hundreds of keys in S1, routes this season seem really odd.

    I think it's excellent. The only change I would make is to make the minibosses far, far easier. They should be almost negligible to the point you can pull them with trash. Anything that makes affixes less impactful on the dungeon's difficulty is the right move IMO. Let us make our own difficulty by increasing the key level.

    As a casual mythic + tank this affix is very welcoming. Having to coordinate all pulls around 20% trash was really annoying.

    it's great, i only wish there were more powers to choose from.
    With the way its right now, its just picking one and the same fixed powers over and over again.

    it's an alright affix, but i think the 4 miniboss approach was done in a more interesting way in 8.3.

    i was expecting the anima powers you got to be different from week to week.

    Anima power are a bit underwheling but it's still way better than prideful

    I'd add an anima power rotation personally. The only ones I sometimes vary are those coming from the ice guy, otherwise it's 2x Champion's Brand and Ward of Stone like 90% of DPS classes, looks like.

    Minibosses are a bit easy TBH, but not easy enough that you want to pull them alongside trash in most cases. So they come across as a bit of a speedbump to me.

    Still, not having to worry about % and getting a permanent power boost is cool and welcome so I like it all told.

    my experience in 12s is completly different though (i cba to push further for now untill i get couple of resets of GV ) - those dungeons are a joke now when for example a party of 220 is doing +12 - we just did NW 12 with 10 minutes spare. when people will be like 245+ in couple of weeks they will be blasting through 17-18 without problems.



    It's not bad, but if we are honest a heal for 20% every 45 seconds isn't overwhelmingly good. Not when people get hits for 60% of their health every 5 seconds. It helps, but it's not awesome. I do enjoy the "Fast Food" anima. That one is creative and useful. But I would like some more diversity.

    As it goes everyone picks the same 4 powers every run because you only have a very limited selection. In my mind it would be great if we got one specific power that is absolutely necessary and then a big selection of additonal ones that can pop up and give some cool effects.

    What makes Toghast fun (for me) is getting the animas that are changing your playstyle and turn it on it's head. I wish we had those in M+

    Yep, same here.
    Sounds like the people in your group should take less avoidable damage or make the effort to get better gear.

    it's great! seasonal affixes in SL so far are MILES better than bfa. bfa had two absolute trash affixes in infested and beguiling, an ok one in awakened, and an awesome one in reaping. i loved loved prideful, and i really like tormented, so doin good! SL keys are my favorite iteration so far.

    It's alright.

    I just don't like how picking up the powers is so buggy. Sometimes it's difficult to click the big Orb, and why do we have to click twice again?

    I don't want more random.
    Failing a key because you got shit powers would suck.

    What they do need, however, is to make it faster to select your powers. Right now it's 10+ seconds of fumbling around the mawsworns corpse trying to click it, wait for the cast, click it again, and then select your power. Just make it spawn the final orb at the start like it does in Torghast, that'd be way better.

    You have to click the mawsworn corpse, not the orb. The orb is a trap.

    But yes, having to click it twice sucks ass
