I must say that I really do enjoy the fractals design. The boss fights so far have all had a unique mechanic (2 have been range spank but still had a diffent mechanic). However, they haven't been very hard (granted I've only done 5 out of possible 89). I hope the Agony system isn't just a crappy "you take constant damage" mechanic though (haven't triggered it yet). And the drops are decent.
So far, I'm on level 3 and each chest has only dropped 5 fractals. The grind, in terms of sheer tokens, to get ascended pieces is really really steep so far. However, it feels less like a grind because its not the same dungeon every time you go in. But, if you dont like dungeon crawling, which is what this system boils down to, then you won't like it period and it will be a worse grind for you. After about 2hrs I've made just over a gold and replaced some gear.
I also still dislike the power creep, but I need to see the different stats attached to the ascended upgrades to know for sure if it really is more powerful than exotics.
