Nightarish, Plagued, Electrified, Molten

Wizard
I just encountered this in game...

I thought there were rules against this kind of thing....
from a single mob? what mp are you in?
Was on a bunch of snakes in act 2 in the vault of the assassin. mp7
ah yes mp7. yeah affix combos are crazy in mp7. hey at least it's not with arcane. nothing like running into the length of the laser due to nightmarish.
there is nothing wrong with that.

Here are the categories: 1 in 3 chance to get this "Strong CC" (Limit 1):
Knockback
Nightmarish
Vortex

1 in 10 chance. thats why missile dampening is rare. "Defensive" (Limit 1):
Avenger
Extra Health
Health Link
Horde
Illusionist
Missile Dampening
Invulnerable Minions (since removed)
Shielding
Vampiric

no limit. means you get 2 of 13 to 4 of 13 (depending on whether strong cc/defensive are present) "Aggressive" (No Limit):
ArcaneEnchanted
Desecrator
Electrified
Fast
Fire Chains
Frozen
Jailer
Molten
Mortar
Plagued
Reflects Damage
Teleporter
Waller

--
so you can tell that there is a up to a 4/13 chance of getting reflect damage (30% chance)

I have seen that on mp10. I think RD and electrified is probably the most annoying for CM wiz. Nightmarish is fairly easy as I just position myself against a wall so they cant fear me far. It is not a hard combo but I have a personal hatred for shielding and nightmarish just over shear annoyance factor.
frozen. :D frozen. :D frozen. :D
Frozen - Vortex - Arcane - Molten

Best option is to kite a bit, unfortunately, to prevent "kill zones" from being set up for you to get vortexed into.
Nightmarish is great name. Its my least favourite. Especially if its those fat sorcerers. They buff each other, don't stand still, and spread out the whole time. Couple that with molten, then its a nightmare.
