Can bursting with pride be interrupted? 🤔
Arcane Mage, kill Pride right before boss, lust... PEW PEW PEW PEW.Kinda funny how such a simple affix can open up so many possibilities.And it's also not an annoying affix.Mplus going to be even more fun in Shadowlands, still going to miss Awekining though. Skipping annoying trash and traps/environment mechanic is fun :p
Neat! Just neat! Can't complain or suggest anything about it
I'm curious if the buff stacks. I know that the mobs cast an ever increasing group wide damage, but if you are able to cc them and stop those from going through during the cc then I can see lots of possibilities with this affix and think it could lead to some pretty creative strategies.
I'm not really a super heavy key person, but under normal circumstances I can't see a group killing a prideful thing, getting its debuff, downing another 20% of the trash, and downing another prideful thing in one minute. If your idea is to kite the thing around and keep it alive until you spawn another one to try to stack the buffs, note its bursting with pride pulsing aura gets 40% stronger each tick.
you may be able to drop combat with one, spawn another and fight them both at the same time to start the stacks low
This looks amazing. Can't wait to test it out:)
Actually looks quite fun, looking forward to the next season
I really like the idea of this affix. I think it will provide a bit deeper gameplay that folks originally suspect, as doing certain routes, to proc the manifestation at certain places, will be key to clearing high keys, and utilizing the buff to its fullest potential while it's up. Also, congratz to Arcane Mages, who should get an absolutely massive dps increase from this buff, getting to maintain 4 arcane charges for the entire duration in addition to 30% increased dmg should be pretty bonkers.
Looks like they kinda took something out of the two best BfA seasonal affixes (reaping & awakened) and put them together, I like it!
Wonder if it pulls unkilled ones when spawned like reaping did. Might have some interesting interactions if you can get them low and then spawn a new one to aggro if the buff can stack or extend.
This sounds like alot fun I can't get them all low then pulling final boss and get that sweet super dmg
I swear,if u use Fleshcraft on his corpse,then party gets SUPER MEGA ULTRA dmg buff,which can oneshot every boss in 30+key
Sounds alright. Don't think it will be a huge problem
This seems like a lot of fun if not pretty broken. 30% damage buff before every boss is rather absurd though.
I don't think the buff will stack, but it'll still be advantageous to kill a Manifestation before or during a boss fight, especially if it's a difficult one. To me, the ideal reality would be each Manifestation being killed relatively quickly and making a big chunk of the next 20% easy to clear, leading to the next Manifestation, etc. Save one for nastiest boss, whether it's in the middle of the dungeon or at the end. Should be fun to play with.
Looks like an interesting affix to mythic plus and a lot better than any other affix except reaping in bfa
