WoW: Season 2 Affix brings Torghast into the M+ dungeons - including Animaboni?

The PTR for WoW Patch 9.1 has been up for a while, but there was still a lot of content and customization missing. In the latest build, a whole bunch of these missing things finally came into play - including the long-awaited Season Affix. This one will, as expected, be based on the new Sanctum of Domination raid. However, apparently not on final boss Sylvanas, as was often speculated in advance. Instead, the dungeon master has his fingers in the pie once again.

  • In the Mythic-Plus-Dungeons of the 2nd Season we get to deal with the forces of the Dungeon Master.

The system cannot really be tested on the PTR yet. Only the information about it has been dug up by the dataminers. In addition, a name for the upcoming affix is still missing so far.

  • [PH] SL S2 Affix - Defeat the Jailor's forced to gain cool powers!

What this means in practice is that there will probably be several of the Jailor's fighters scattered throughout the dungeons that we can defeat with our party and receive a buff of some sort as a reward. Currently, there is speculation about whether we might get Animaboni as a reward. After all, we will be able to use these in the upcoming raid outside of Torghast. While this scenario sounds very likely, it has not yet been confirmed by the developers.

It also remains unclear for the time being how the enemies will be distributed in the dungeon and whether we as players will know in advance which enemy and which bonuses will be given. Possibly this will result in completely new routes through the dungeons, in order to avoid ineffective enemies and to collect fat bonuses elsewhere.

If we really get the Anima bonuses that will be used in the upcoming raid, then we have attached the list at the end of the news for you. In it you will find all the anima bonuses found so far in connection with the Sanctum of Domination.

Opinion of the author: In principle, the new affix sounds extremely cool. However, there are some things that Blizzard can't mess up. For example, the selection of the Animaboni. These should not be random at all in my eyes. RNG we have in WoW (now buy 14,99 € ) already enough. If now my time in the mythic dungeon also depends on how lucky we got with our bonuses, then the feature is dead for me. But if instead, let's say, five to ten enemies are spread throughout the dungeon, each offering a fixed selection, then it fits the bill for me. We can figure out exactly what bonuses we want and plan our route accordingly. Oh, and hopefully the bonuses aren't +x percent versatility all the time or boring stuff like that.

Here is the list of Animaboni from the Sanctum of Domination raid:

  • Blade of the Lifetaker: Your attacks have a high chance to steal health from the enemy equal to 10% of your maximum health.
