    Last week's combo of Necrotic/Sanguine was really awful.

    Anything with Bolstering sucks, especially grievous iirc.

    As a tank doing fairly high keys (21-23) Fortified necrotic sanguine is painful, it's such a tightrope act, if you go in with low defensives the healer can offset the damage before necrotic stacks too high, and you will have the heavy defensives for when damage can really go out, but you risk getting splatted every time you do that. If you go in with heavy CDs you will survive pretty well, but now the usual things that keep you alive during necrotic (Trees, snares, roots) will cause tons of sanguine healing.
    It's a damned if you do damned if you don't scenario.

    Single affix? As a melee in often melee-heavy groups, I loathe spiteful and explosive

    Compounding affixes? Tyrannical, Bolstering, Grievous.

    Affixes that make trash more complicated/time consuming to kill in general are very dumb, especially when stacked like this weeks. Big pulls = more bombs, big pulls = more potential for mobs to bolster 1 or 2 to gigantic levels. Bolstering by itself is already an imbalanced affix. Depending on the dungeon it can be way worse, like Halkias shards in HoA. The Fort week that had Bolstering in S2 made HoA a big nope. Depending on the dungeon and how good/bad your healer is, Grievous sucks very bad. The worst is Shatter Reality in DoS and I go to solo my platform with a few stacks already on me before I port over and I die because I have no way to remove stacks from myself.

    Anything with grievous or bolstering.
    Grievous because it's significantly harder to heal than other weeks, bolstering because it means you can't pull big packs

    Inspiring also gets an honourable mention for just being annoying

    Since last week, for me as a tank it's sanguine + necrotic, that was such a shitshow I think about just not doing M+ during that combo anymore.

    My favorite are mobs that plant themselves and cannot be moved in a sanguine even with abilities that normally move mobs.
