Lumbering form - while a nice stat increase - can be really hurtful in the mists phase when you need to stack in a pretty small area. can accidentally cause a wipe
This looks awesome!
OH HELLOthis is gonna be a fun encounter
I'm not sure how the stat increases won't be the immediate choice for everyone? Seems like such a huge increase to ignore when a lot of the other powers are more difficult to use properly.
Oh great, and entire boss with rng powers. We haven't gotten enough of the lottery rolls dictating our damage before. I sure miss infinite stars!
I was having a blast testing this boss earlier on the PTR with my team, it's fun to have the very first boss of the raid have these gimicky powers, hilarity ensues, and it's only the first boss of the raid, so Blizz were allowed to have some fun with it which they typically wouldn't be able to do with the final few bosses of a tier.
they need to keep this in! it's so much fun. i know it wont happen but i hope there is going to be a full anima instance where you can get more anima powers against all bosses. ofc this wont drop gear just for the funs like torgast. but that might be to much.
If you get these two powers you can literally stand still for the entire fight:Ever-Beating Heart You become immune to Fear and Stun effects.Oddly Intangible Key You take 90% less damage from area of effect attacks.The first one lets you soak all chains.The second one lets you stand still during the aoe phase where you have to find a clean spot on the floor.We used this method to kill it on PTR today.
Some of these seem like they are going to be tuned, either to be better or worst or not work for certain effects. Some feel like its going to be a "you must pick this power dps, healers, tanks" for mechanical reasons.
I think this is a creative, fun, interesting and unexpected...I like it.
This seems like one of the most fun raid encounters they've come up with in while, can't wait!
This is gonna be so fun in guild runs but a bit of a nightmare in pugs considering the troll powers.
Very cool. And also it's the first boss, so it doesn't really matter if it's "too easy" if you get the good powers since first bosses don't really matter
What a fun looking encounter.
