Afflicted WoW: How to manage the affix in M+?

When Afflicted is active, entities named "Afflicted Souls" appear during battles. Unlike regular enemies, these entities must be healed to 100% of their health to disappear. If players fail to heal them, they suffer a 100% Hate debuff for 10 seconds.

Rather than healing Souls, it is best to remove one of the three types of debuffs (Disease, Poison, and Curse) present on Afflicted Souls. For this, certain classes with support spells will be essential in your group. Here is a list of relevant classes and spells:

  • Druid - Deliverance from Curse
  • Mage - Deliverance from Curse
  • Monk - Detox
  • Paladin - Purify
  • Priest - Purify
  • Shaman - Enhanced Purifying Spirit
  • Evocative - Eliminate and Cauterize Flame

These classes are even more crucial during weeks when Afflicted is active. It is recommended to include at least two of these classes in your Mythic+ party to effectively deal with Afflicted Souls. Having multiple options for dealing with these entities eases the pressure on the healer and increases the group's chances of success.
