Things have slowed down as the world's best guilds narrow in on Blackhand, with a new top two having emerged over the weekend. Dozens of guilds sit at 7/10 and 8/10, respectively, trying to catch up to the leaders working on world first Mythic clear.

 

World first Blast Furnace and the title of overall leader going into Blackhand himself went to Method on Sunday, overcoming their world 4th Iron Maidens kill. Paragon was able to clinch the second Blast Furnace kill worldwide later that evening, and no one else has caught up so far.

 

Midwinter published a video showcasing their Mythic world first on Iron Maidens:

 

 

Will either of the leading guilds, or one of the others chasing their heels at 8/10, see a Blackhand kill this week? We'll be keeping a close eye on the race if not going into this week's lockout...

Just out of curiosity, do the guilds chasing after world first clears start fresh with a new lockout or do they extend last weeks lockout? It makes sense that they would extend the previous week's lockout but I wasn't sure if there was a rule about that or not.

Even at this level of progression, guilds rarely extend lockouts - the added benefit of the gear from an additional week's worth of bosses is a useful numerical advantage, even at the highest levels of play.

 

Lockout extension is fairly uncommon amongst top progression guilds.

      And there we have it, the very first Mythic +28 dungeon has been completed in time! This time around it's the Naowhxoxo, Imbanane, Fragnance, Frankstér and Gingì team that's made a new record, getting to +28 in Lower Karazhan! It was Bursting, Quaking and Fortified week in case you were wondering and they finished exactly 2 minutes and 59 seconds before the timer expired.
      Huge congrats to the team!
      Here's the clip of the moment of victory and the full video below it:

      A sample of G'huun's blood, animated and run amok. Considered by the Titans to be an infection capable of killing every living thing on Azeroth. Its primary disease strain was dubbed the Omega Vector.
      Overview
      The Blood of G'huun creates instances of Omega Vector which bounce endlessly between players during the encounter. When Omega Vector jumps between players it leaves behind a stack of Lingering Infection, which has no duration and cannot be removed.
      Mutagenic Pathogen is the source of new copies of Omega Vector, with one Omega Vector being created whenever Mutagenic Pathogen expires from a player.
      Damage Dealers

Help tanks survive several attacks of Mutagenic Pathogen as they try to minimize the number of Omega Vector jumping through the raid.

      Blizzard seems to be experimenting with an option to allow players customize their Mythic Keystones in Battle for Azeroth.
      A new Alpha Build (26095) went live today and we found many spells related to Mythic Keystone customization.
      Note: This is Alpha and everything is subject to change at any given time. The feature may be purely experimental for testing purposes and might not go live in any form.
      Dungeons
      It's very hard to determine under which circumstances would players be allowed to customize (reroll?) the dungeon of their Mythic Keystone runs. I would personally just spam Maw of Souls. The spells below are only listing Legion dungeons at the moment, so this may go live even before Battle for Azeroth. The names of Legion Dungeons could very well be placeholders for BfA dungeons and may get updated in a future Alpha Build.

      Mythic Keystone Customization
      The newly introduced Blight affix has been renamed to Blighted.
      In addition to that we found many spells that allow customization of Mythic keystone runs. We covered that in a separate post here. Based on various spell descriptions, players should be able to set a desired keystone dungeon, level and add affixes to Mythic Keystones.
      Note: The customization options may only be intended for Alpha testing.
