I am really excited about the new dungeon opening up, and my guild is ready for some high quality raiding! What kind of adds do you want to see with the new bosses? What about a boss that was nothing but adds? That might be an interesting experience. Maybe a boss made of adds whose adds spawned adds?

    Here would be an interesting idea: What if, at the start of the encounter, there was a "Reserve Troops" counter at the top of the screen. The boss only had so many reinforcements he or she could call upon, and as you defeated them, the counter went down.

    Now, here's the key to the encounter - the boss would be more of a "leader" than a direct combatant. They provide powerful buffs and such to their troops. There would be elements in the combat area that would give you or the enemy combat advantage - such as elevated areas that can only be accessed from 1 side from which archers and casters could attack from.

    I'd also like to see adds only spawn from sensible entrances - ones that can be blocked or otherwise disabled during the fight.

    I don't mind adds if they are reasonable and fitting, but the current trend of them just insta-spawning is a cheap cop-out.

    Let Foundry Creators do that stuff if the Devs are too lazy or not creative enough... Im sure you arent the only one that would love such things :)
    The current Bossfights are a shame.. adds,aoe,adds,more adds,aoe etc.. Tho i did manage to die vs Bosses,so i probably shouldnt talk lol..

    I notice nobody has selected option 2 yet. Could it be that you don't want more adds? That's crazy talk and I am calling shenanigans.

    At the very least, adds should *only* be of the lowest enemy category... the boss bringing in adds that are of the higher tiers, which drop aoe's and attacks which lock you out or otherwise mez you is just too much...
