Dungeon Tips and Tricks from Mythic Dungeon International Cup #1
The first Mythic Dungeon International Cup took place this weekend. During these dungeons, some interesting tips and tricks were used by the teams and we wanted to highlight a couple strategies that you may be able to use in your own dungeon runs.
For the Results of the MDI Cup #1, check out the bracket on
. Raider.IO also includes links to the VoD timestamps and provides the Talents and Azerite Traits that were used by each of the players.
The Night Elf racial
is a very powerful tool in Mythic+ dungeons, as it allows players to completely drop combat with any mobs that they are in combat with. While it's unlikely for a full Night Elf group on live servers, this is another possible method of skipping mobs, other than
We've linked some example clips from the MDI.
Shrine of the Storm Elemental Skip
The Elemental miniboss has a massive amount of health and puts out incredible damage for only a very small amount of trash count towards the dungeon. Thus, all groups in the MDI decide to skip it.
The Tank (ex. Prot Warrior), pulls the
to the front of the bridge, while the rest of the group runs past.
The Tank then quickly runs forward (ex.
) and joins the rest of the group in
If the Elemental is too close when the group tries to
, it will fail as the
has True Sight.
The MDI teams also time a Reaping Wave with this
, allowing them to skip most of this wave. You can see Abrakeydabra (left screen) complete this skip below.
As stated above,
also will drop combat with Reaping. Certain Reaping mobs also have True Sight, but there are cases when players have traveled a large distance away from the Reaping spawn, allowing them to
and avoid a Reaping wave.
In the below clip, you can see Method NA (right screen) skip an entire Reaping wave by all using
after the Tentacles die. They are out of range of all previous mobs they've killed so they don't aggro any Reaping and skip the wave.
Atal'Dazar - Dodging Merciless Assault
is a deadly ability in Atal'dazar, especially on high keys and/or with the Fortified affix. It's a very fast cast, deals very high physical damage and is it very difficult to dodge. However, there is a way to use the terrain to your advantage to avoid the mechanic entirely.
The key is that
players at ranged
, meaning that if all members of your group stand in melee except for 1 person,
will always be cast on them. However, if the target of
is on an elevated surface, the
cannot find a path to charge to the target, and the cast fails. You can see the two elevated positions where you can perform this trick below by Method NA (left screen).
Freehold - Cannon Barrage Friendly Fire
actually deals Friendly Fire damage to all other creatures in the instance (other than
himself). This includes Harlan's summoned add
, all the trash surrounding Harlan and Reaping waves!
Before 60%, a single
won't do much damage but
at 60% which provides 4 sets of
s, one debuff on each of the DPS and on the healer. When these 4 debuffs are stacked together, they will destroy anything under them. If you time your Trash pulls with the
, you'll be able to obliterate trash and Reaping waves similar to Fourty K (right screen) in the clip below.
The MOTHERLODE!! - 2 Pillar Mogul Razdunk
's Intermission Phase, the general strategy is to bait Mogul Razdunk to
on top of the three pillars to end the phase. However, there a strategy that can be done with certain classes to only have to break two pillars. On high keys,
does a lot of damage every time it lands, but skipping one
also saves about 10 seconds.
In order to skip one
, you have to get a Pet hit by the second
and for some reason it counts as an extra hit, removing an extra stack form
which should break him out of the Phase. You can see Method EU (left screen) accomplish this using a Monk's
in the clip below.
Waycrest Manor - Opening Raal's Doors
Depending on what route Waycrest Manor has you taking in the dungeon, your entrance to
may be less than optimal, forcing you to clear extra trash around the hallway to get to the open door. However, if you have a Rogue in your group, they are able to open all of the doors to
's room for the rest of the party.
The Rogue will stealth and head to Raal's room through whatever door is open. They will then pull Raal and quickly
is pulled, all his doors will open. You can see this done in the Method EU (left screen) below.
