Afflicted die to spiders and spawn souls on Yazma fight

The weekly affix will literally spawn souls you need to DPS in conjunction with your actual player ones, and they will die to spiders (and kill people near them). If you don’t pull the boss away, they will 1-2x stack the debuff and wipe the group as well, which is super cool.

I’m not sure if this is intended, but it’s absolutely savage in push keys if you’re not expecting it.

At 11:09 a.m. PST today, we deployed the following hotfix:


  • In Mythic+ difficulties, Afflicted Souls will no longer be treated as players.

This was a bug that allowed Afflicted Souls to be targeted by enemy abilities and therefore trigger mechanics unintentionally.
