About our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Pottm from Serenity.

1. Mythic Changes

Besides all adds and the boss having more health and all abilities doing more damage, there are a couple of new abilities and mechanics in the Mythic mode of the fight.

1.1. Phase One

Adds behave exactly in the same way as in Normal and Heroic mode, although spawn patterns may be different. The explosion of Nightmare Ichors is slightly different though. Instead of only dealing damage to nearby players, it also applies a stacking DoT on them, ticking twice in 4 seconds for a mild amount of Shadow damage.

There is also an entirely new mechanics called Death Blossom Icon Death Blossom, which seems to be cast approximately once per minute by the Eye of Il'gynoth. It has a 15-second cast time. When the cast begins, as many as 20 Death Blossoms (small void zones) start appearing at random locations in the room. When the cast finishes, the blossoms detonates, dealing high Shadow damage to all players standing in the blossom and granting them 50% increase movement speed for 6 seconds. If there is no one standing in the blossom, then the entire raid takes a mild amount of Shadow damage and then low Shadow damage every 2 seconds for 50 seconds.

1.2. Phase Two

In Phase Two, there are two new mechanics that we have not seen during beta testing. From the Dungeon Journal, it looks as if they add more damage and reduce the space available inside the chamber.

2. Strategy

It is too early to propose a proper strategy for Mythic and we will update this section once we know things more certainly.
