Most insane Affix Combos

  • #1
    The other day i was happily farming A3 when this nightmare showed up...Had to ditch the MF gear to be able to kill it without dying.

    Also the damn thing caught me with WOTB on CD just to make my encounter a bit more cheerful. When it was almost dead the CD expired but then i just finished the job without burning it again...

    How about u guys, seen anything as nasty as that lately?

    Well since the image is not working (I simply suck at this forum business) It is a Succubus, Frozen, Molten, Plagued and Arcane Enchanted.
    Now if anyone will be so kind as to enlighten me how the hell do I do to post a picture here it will be much apreciated.

    Great story with no affixes listed

    In other news, not sure how everyone gets 'caught with xxx on CD'.. you pull the monsters... not the other way around

    Edit - as WD the hardest I really encounter are champ/minion packs with horde. I think that's the hardest in the game depending on what gets rolled for the minions

    I have never hit a combo that I felt was 'impossible' though, I hear that all the time, makes no sense to me

    There are some nasty affixes I always hate on my WD (vortex+molten being one of the most loathsome), but I find most often the annoying factor comes from the monster type and their baked-in skills. Tremor beasts, Corrupt Angels, etc. are almost never easy. Many ranged caster type monsters are also very frustrating with any kind of ground-polluting effects since it makes corralling them into a corner difficult.

    Nah that impossible deal is a lie.
    Even pre patch Invul Minions were killable, just required a bit more care and in my case some trash mobs around it.

    But there really are some that are just plain annoying... Like Vortex, Jailer, Frozen, Desecrator for example.

    Sorry I couldnt link the image, I dont know how to do it.

    Molten, frozen, arcane, electrified, plagued shouldn't be able to spawn on 1 elite pack. They should put it into AOE category like they did with CC affixes.
  • #8
    Lets see, Fast, molten, electrified horde or vortex. Coupled with monster types like snakes that can just run up to you and bypass most of your damage, or a fast mummy (accursed) which are already so fast. I bet haedrig and the other merchants plant these mobs, for serious repair profits.

    Off-topic: If our character loses, then the world is over, and everyone dies. But I still pay through my nose for repairs. C'mon, at least let me run a tab.

    edit: My off topic rant didn't make sense before.

    I hate fast or vortex on allready fast mobs like spiders or reapers (frog like dogs, idk really name) and add reflect damage, extra health and jailer....
    90% of the time I die at least once before I kill them with my DH. Crazy affixes!

    First upload your image to somewhere internet (for example there is a gallery in your account here diablofans where you can upload images). Then link that image here as a link or using image tags [IMG.]address to your image[/IMG.] (just without those dots).

    The hardest one I encountered so far (and still remember, I got the 5K elites achievement a while ago so go figure^^ ) was one in hell A4. The mages in the second part of the act who summon meteors with Illusionist, mortars and fear. Illusionist on those guys is bad enough already because there is not a single area without an incoming meteor but fearing mortars on top of that was ridiculous.
  • #13
    Every single soul lasher elite/champ pack I have ever encountered...basically the only thing that kills me in Act 3 farming.
  • #14
    Shielding, fire chains, vortex, arcane/fast/frozen :(
  • #15
    Soul lasher with illusionist at the entrance of the dungeon. The remaining affixes were something like extra health, molten, shielding. Greatest problem was the inability to move at all.
  • #16
    Pre-patch I once had some waller, arcane, shielding and.. I think extra health demonic tremors... tried to kite, zoom 500% movementspeed, tried to nuke went from shielding to their "defensive stance" to shielding, tried to tank, got surrounded walled and arcane spammed... yea, not worth the trouble.
    Now post patch I've yet to encounter anything close to impossible, waller+arcane is still annoying, also those blood moon shamans (not sure if correct name, those fast guys in a3 that shield others :P) with molten and fast, hell they still run away forever.

    There's no combination of affixes that can't be made even worse by being on just the right type of base monster.

    A particular horror I encountered was multiple shit-on-the-floor affixes (might have been Frozen, Molten, Plagued), plus Fast.. on some ranged mob that liked to run away. Fast. What a disgusting mess that was.

    i had one really bad with my monk yesterday.
    plagued, molten, electrified, reflect damage. All that on a succubus pack (atacks from range and curses my armor to half)

    i had a bad time here.

    Vortex+Molten/Firechains/both, or Teleport+Firechains, god these are IMPOSSIBLE once they tire of you ,zoom they vortex you in and it's almost insta death... or Fast Demonic Tremors... (because apparently 1000% innate movement speed increase just because they are elites, isn't fast enough... (I know it's not 1000%, it's just to show how insanly fast they are)), or Fast plus any already fast mobs, like fast zombies, Soul Lashers, those things that burrows underground

    When they do that, just pop your defensive CC to escape, and run away until it cools down -- or when you see vortex, make sure you LOS yourself so that when it fires, it pulls you against a wall or something instead of in to the pack, then fight for a few seconds until they can cast it again
