People need to stop voting based on what encounter is harder for players. If you assume that Anomalus isn't too dumb to move, he wins the fight by default. He moves out of dangerous things, spawns endless adds to counter the waves of adds, and goes immune for half the fight, during which time MORE adds are spawning and unhealable AoE damage is flying around in the tight confines of the room. On open ground, where the Tribunal's adds can move away from Anomalus' adds and AoE, this fight might be interesting, but even then Anomalus would accomplish the goal of keeping Brann alive just by setting up tons of portals near him. Any adds that come near Brann will be destroyed.The Tribunal is way harder for players, but by the rules of the contest, Anomalus is simply unbeatable. All he has to do is spam portals in the doorway and dodge nasty stuff. Any adds that manage to squeak through can be cleaned up easily.

Anomalus goes immune, doesnt pick up adds, adds kill bran, Anomalus looses.

you got to think of how he fights, Anomalus dose not just contentiously spawn adds, its got a CD, and he wouldn't be able to spawn enough to take care of the wave after wave of adds. Also like Xetan said, the second Anomalus goes immune everything is going to go after bran, and that's all she wrote.

When he goes immune, he still has all his adds and portals up. When you fight Anomalus and he goes immune, do you just sit there? No, he's still attacking you, you just can't hurt him until you clean up the portals. The tribunal adds are going to be focused on Brann, not the portals. As soon as Anomalus goes immune the AoE starts and anything in the room gets nuked.Remember, the fight isn't Anomalus versus the Tribunal and their adds, it's Anomalus and ALL HIS ADDS against the Tribunal and their adds.

People who disagree with you are being biased and missing the point. Got it.

Helig, You are very right on this.But the Tribunal's adds are too dumb to really care. They'll either go after the portals because theAE damage has angered them, or they do a beeline for Brann. If those golems get to Brann, the rock him pretty hard pretty fast. I've had an entire fight go perfect and then one golem just ignored all of us, walked up to him and boom, Brann got smeared into a fine paste.The damage over that fight as you pick up adds will take it's toll on Brann. Even if Anomalus cared about him, he would be hard pressed to grab all the adds. His adds would just go around killing stuff at random and wouldn't specifically pick up the guys on Brann. That's the only problem I see with it. His adds hate everything, they won't go after Brann's adds to the exclusion of everything else, and even if they do, they are not as numerous as as what the tribunal is throwing around. Add the fire and random AE being thrown around and I don't see Brann surviving.

@ Heilig Maybe its time you stopped voting for your favourite of the 2? Anomalus would lose simply because he wont be able to keep up with the speed that the waves come + the lazer eye will do a large bit of damage to him, even if he moves.REMEMBER "Anomalus loses; he dies or is unable to protect Brann Brozebeard." It doesnt take many adds to slip through to kill him.These 2 bosses imo are both easy so dont go claiming that people are voting for "the encounter they find hardest"

Both fights are a walk in the park, very easy fights as long as the idiots know how to "stay out of the fire."However in this case, I think Anomalus would win period.Think about it, both fighters summon up adds to deal with each other but the only difference between the two is how the adds come. Here is the plan, if he was able to keep the portals up and shift over to "god mode" (Rift Shield) while both the adds are clashing, the portals would be dealing damage over time. He could take anything Tribunal would have to throw at him (Searing Gaze and Dark Matter come to mine). Now if Anomalus's adds die off, portal just summons up a few more.The only thing that make this an unfair fight for Tribunal is she (yes, I am declaring Tribunal a she) "dies" after a certain amount of time passes, which would be Brann hacking into her systems.
