New seasonal affixes are in development and will be available for testing later as a part of the PTR cycle.

No Seasonal Affix For Season 2

In an Interview with Morgan Day, Associate Game Director, he stated there will be no Seasonal Affix anymore for the upcoming Season 2 of Dragonflight.

“In terms of the philosophy of affixes in particular for Season 2, we’ve definitely taken a big step back there and are looking at it holistically. One major change we’re making is we’re actually just not going to have a level 10, that is to say the “seasonal affix” like Thundering. There won’t be a replacement for Thundering and Thundering is being retired. So at level 10, the scaling will continue to kick in but there’s no new affix there. Seasonal affixes were created as an idea, I want to say, back in Battle for Azeroth, where we had the same dungeon pool. We would add one or two dungeons here and there but you could be playing the same dungeons for many many seasons, and really we added those Seasonal affixes to try to solve the problem of it feeling like Dungeons were solved, like there was a specific route, there was a specific way everyone approached the dungeon. Seasonal affixes were there to mix that up and change the way you approached the dungeon. Going into Dragonflight, we were like “well we don’t need to solve that problem anymore, but maybe there’s a way to add some amount of gameplay that feels like more like a persistent element of the dungeon but ultimately we’ve heard a lot of feedback around complexity, like how much stuff do I have to know, to do and what’s going on and how many wrenches are you going to throw at me, not even just dodgeballs but wrenches we’re throwing at you that you have to dodge. Definitely taking a really close look at that with Season 2, so not doing the level 10 affix.”

Keystone Level 7+ Affix Rework

Additionally, Morgan Day stated that they are currently looking into the Affixes which appear at Keystone Level 7 or higher, causing a lot of troublesome for players engaging into Mythic Keystone Dungeons. The Affixes which start appearing at Level 7 or higher are Quaking, Grievous, Volcanic, Storming and Explosive.

“Then, we’re really taking a closer look at the level 7 bucket and how much opportunity is there for counterplay. How much of that is making your healer’s life harder versus how much of that is there an opportunity where if I play really well, I can negate this affix and use my utility really well or whatever it may be. So we’re definitely taking a look at the whole level 7 bucket, so really more along the lines of an affix refresh for that bucket, as well no level 10 affix.”
