WoW raises the bar with Mythic+ Seasons in Battle for Azeroth
Mythic+ dungeons have been one of the Legion’s most successful additions to the game. For some, Mythic+ dungeons are an alternative gearing path for raids. For others, Mythic+ dungeons represent their primary PVE endgame activity. And in Battle for Azeroth, the developers are continuing to improve the system. First mentioned in an interview between Twitch streamer Slootbag and Lead Encounter Designer Morgan Day at PAX East, Mythic dungeons will have Seasons in Battle for Azeroth, much like PVP. Thanks for the intrepid dataminers at Wowhead, we now have a first look at what Mythic Seasons will be like in the expansion in the form of datamined achievements. (Though remember, this is the beta and this could still change.)
The expected Mythiupdates
The first two achievements are the expected updates to the Keymaster and Keymaster Guild Run achievements.
- Battle for Azeroth Keymaster: Complete the following Battle for Azeroth dungeons using a Mythic Keystone
- Keystone Master Guild Run:Complete a Level 15 or higher Mythic dungeon within the time limit while in a guild group.
The current Realm First achievements have been changed to specify Legion only, with new Battle for Azeroth versions. Love or hate Realm Firsts, they are back for Mythic+ in Battle. These don’t have the seasonal component, so it looks like a one time achievement for all of Battle.
Realm First! Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Participated in the realm-first completion of a Level 15 or higher Battle for Azeroth Mythic dungeon within the time limit.
Realm First! Legion Keystone Master: Participated in the realm-first completion of a Level 15 or higher Legion Mythic dungeon within the time limit.
Introducing Mythic Seasons
Then there are the new Mythic Season achievements Keystone Conqueror and Keystone Master. These go hand in hand with the seasonal affix, Infested, which infests non-boss enemies with a a Spawn of G’huun. The big change here is you no longer need just a single dungeon on +10 or +15. Now you must get +10 or +15 on every Battle Mythic dungeon.
Battle for Azeroth Keystone Conqueror: Season One: Complete all Battle for Azeroth Mythic dungeons at Level 10 or higher within the time limit, before the end of the first Mythic Keystone season.
Battle for Azeroth Keystone Master: Season One:Complete all Battle for Azeroth Mythic dungeons at Level 15 or higher within the time limit, before the end of the first Mythic Keystone season
This is an altogether more difficult task and worthy of a reward, but the achievements are missing any mention of one. PVPers get titles and mounts, and it would be nice to see something similar for PVE. My favorite reward would be something like the Mists of Pandaria Challenge mode sets, but we’ll see what happens.
