i understand the necrotic change, it was just the insane affix, making all tank fear,but for bolstering & raging, why ?* bolstering is easy to handle, except if they want us to do triple packs on bolstering ? it's not the purpose of the affix to take care about the pack size & mob kill ?* raging nerf, why again a nerf ? for non disenrage groups ? 3 classes can remove enrages, and it's not so hard to kite a bit.
Better necrotic nerf would be to make the stacks not refreshing the duration endlessly.
I have a feeling they'll buff the damage Bolstering buff gives to mobs, since it only lasts 20 seconds, they will prolly make us kite or immune some mobs that get a lot of stacks. On the other hand, they might not. You never know with these things! ^^
Bolstering is easy in what context? Doing a +15 for completion where you pull one pack at a time? Bolstering has been awful from the start. It is such a polarizing affix that changes how you can do dungeons, but not in a meaningful or interesting way. Raging is also easy in weekly 15s when pulling one group at a time.However, when you do higher keys, there are a lot of mobs that have abilities that are not avoidable and the Fortified dmg bonus + key level dmg bonus + 75% Raging bonus quickly turns into people just getting one-shot.
Bolstering is not "difficult"..... It is anti-fun and boring. You must pull less or you end up having to do an extra 5 million damage or suicide to reset stacks.
8/14/2021 it looks like there was fortified raging explosive. Or week 7 of this seasons affix combinations
Would really like to know how the bolstering 20s duration works.1. If you kill another mob within the 20s timeframe will it refresh the 20s for total stacks?2. Is the 20s based for EACH debuff. Meaning 1 stack will get removed every 20s.
m+15s arent difficult. except ur all 220 ilvl + low reknown ^^
Just remove necrotic so i can go to reddit and be happy there isn't 60k posts about how this evil affix murdered someone's family.
