"Round 3 and Anomalus, being a wily one (he beat the Blue Dragonflight
at its own game; that has got to count for something), has a new strat," Saravok continued. "He just runs about, kiting the adds, while his own build up (though a few dying to the faces of doom). He goes immune again, and his adds win the day. Brann is fine, but had the fight gone any longer, Anomalus would have gone down; when immune, his adds can easily protect the rifts and keep hold of the adds, while the AoE rips them apart.
"Anomalus, the Arcane Elemental, is too much for a Titian Defense Grid. Shielding himself, his many adds to even the score of numbers, and his deft dodging of the Tribunal bring victory." Chaos rules
Even readers who felt the matchup offered the potential for a definitive victory or defeat believed that chaos would be the battle's defining characteristic.
"Anomalus is a physical embodiment of chaos and anarchy," noted Conrad. "I think he wouldn't recognize Brann as being 'on his side' and kill Brann either directly or via splash damage."
"Very high-end security system vs. a being born from pure arcane energy," mused Siaperas. "I have every bit of confidence Anomalus can survive the Tribunal event, but I don't think he could keep Brann alive during it. In fact, I think Anomalus would destroy the room and accidently kill Brann in the process. His energy is too unstable and too powerful -- so powerful that even the Blue Dragonflight couldn't control him. It would be like asking a bomb to protect Brann.
"As the fight goes on, Anomalus expends more and more arcane energy, and he would do that until everything is destroyed. Anomolus fails by accidently killing Brann."
Ccbutch concurred: "Never liked voting for this, but I think it's a tie. Just one or two adds slipping by will be enough to take down Brann; however, in the process, I think Anomalus will destroy the security system. There's just gonna be so much random chaos in the room. It would be like putting small rocks in a blender; the blender would destroy most of the rocks, but by the end, it would be cracked, chipped, broken and worthless.
"Brann dies, the security system is destroyed and Anomalus dies. Nobody wins. However, it would be very interesting to see."
