This season’s theme is more like a season’s meme. These random attacks do not do any damage to the enemies. I was farming some keys on t6 when I first got the laser breath. I had a normal death maiden in front of me. I channeled this breath for the entire duration and I am pretty sure that I could hear the death maiden laughing as though I was tickling her because she took very little damage, if any at all. A bit later on, I got the firewave and actually had enemies on the screen around it. I thought this would clear the trash mobs around it, nope it did nothing as well. The snowball also does not kill anything. The tornado seemed like it might have been doing a little damage, but I am not completely sure. The green meteor seemed to do very little as well.
The effects of all of these attacks are quite aesthetically appealing, but it does absolutely nothing in terms of assisting us in our pursuit of slaying monsters. I’ve played extensively since season 2 or 3 and cannot remember the last time the season theme (since it’s inception) was so lackluster. This could be the first time that it is just go and do the season journey and not play the season. A lot of my friends are saying the same thing.
Blizzard, please do something to change the season theme to something meaningful before the remaining players all find their way elsewhere.
