Mythic Keystone Customization in Battle for Azeroth?

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.

would be amazing to set affixes instead of having a weekly set wouldnt be completely dead weeks anymore with this

Considering past experiences (Mechanar and Maw of Souls M+ farming) I don't think Blizzard will let people reroll all M+ keys.

Should be bad if they make it too easy and casual M+ as well... There are no dead weeks just people who can't handle mechanics.

I imagine this is the "behind the scenes stuff" the devs use rather than a fully customisable dungeon experience in the pipeline.

Right now you "have to" play every given set of affixes (atleast to obtain a good item in the weekly chest). Would they make it a free choice.. i mean, why should i ever roll for Bursting or Bolstering ever again (urks, i hate them so much as a fire mage) or go for Halls of Valor on high tyrannical? I don't think they will implement this or atleast i hope they won't.

I dont think this will become a completely free choice or an consumable that we use on stones.
Those datamined scripts could be just the mechanics that the "key customizer" uses on your key.   :)

But what i could imagine more is a smaller window of free choice.

Imagine a world where the key you have, is COMPLETELY random generated. So no fixed affixes. And then maybe each week they will have some dungeons and some Affixes in an "active" state. When you would approach the new Location or Object which functions as a key-customizer, you can choose to change your completely random stuff into one of those active dungeons or affixes.

Lets say i got a Cathedral key, with bolstering, explosive and tyrannical. when i go there i can change the dungeons to Darkheart-thicket if its active, or roll bolstering out for one of the affixes that is active that week, if i like to keep explosive.

That would make it at least not so disappointing if a week has fixed affixes that you dislike, making it a dead m+ week for you. And i would really like a system where not all, but some little choices can be made to change stuff at least away from stuff that i might hate.

Or another idea for the use of those datamined lines is, that they allow us to slightly modify our keys.

Lets say they keep the M+ system as it is now. And they will just add a "key customizer" somewhere, where you can choose to change ONE aspect of your key. If the affixes are shitty you can roll out one of them to another, or change a dungeon you hate to another, or if you want to go another level of the keystone you can change that. So you can slightly change the keys to your liking, but dont have total freedom. if you change the level of the key, you got to live with the dungeon and the affixes, if you want to change the dungeon you have to live with the affixes on that level.

This scenario i would like even more, than my previous comment :)

      Here's a statement by Adam who's working full-time on Deadly Boss Mods about the future of the addon.
      If you've ever been in a guild, chances are you've come across various boss mods, since they're pretty much mandatory for raiding. BigWigs and Deadly Boss Mods are the two best-known boss mods for World of Warcraft, but this post isn't about recommending either of those addons, but merely to address the future of Deadly Boss Mods by the author and help a community member out.
      All these years, Deadly Boss Mods has been maintained full-time by a single developer, Adam aka MysticalOS who has been tirelessly providing updates for the addon since its inception, without getting much in return, despite helping millions.
      Today, we simply ask you to read the appeal he posted earlier this week and if you want to support his work, please click the image below.

      Here's Adam's appeal taken from the Deadly Boss Mods website.

      Harvest Festival is now live for one week! Alliance players can honor Uther the Lightbringer by lightning a candle at his tomb, while the Horde can show their respect to Grommash by leaving a bottle of spirits in Ashenvale. The event does not count toward What a Long, Strange Trip It's Been.
      Blizzard has updated Uther's Tomb with new visuals in Battle for Azeroth. We don't know if there are any plans to use it in future content patches at the moment, but it looks great! The event will be up for one week.
      For more details check out our Harvest Festival guide.
      Blizzard (Source)
      The yearly Harvest Festival is now underway in Azeroth. This is a solemn time when the Alliance honors Uther the Lightbringer by lighting a candle at his tomb in the Western Plaguelands, while members of the Horde show their respect to Grommash Hellscream by leaving a bottle of spirits at the base of the Hellscream Memorial in Demon Fall Canyon in Ashenvale.
      When: September 18-25
      Where: Outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar
      Commemorate those who have sacrificed their lives to help friends and allies. Feasts are also held outside Ironforge and Orgrimmar in honor of these fallen heroes.

      The race has settled in to a more stable pace, but it's also the tensest it's ever been, as there were only a few new kills today, but Method and probably Limit and Exorsus as well, are getting closer and closer to a kill.
      A lot of G'huun news today, as Method continued their streaming and we got to see a lot of their low % tries, including this 14% replay, which was followed by a 12.4% attempt a little later on.



      Method was so motivated that they raided an extra few hours into the night, stopping only at 3:30 CET, as their fatigue started showing and more and more mistakes were being made on pulls and they'll be back around 11 AM CET. Now, this doesn't necessarily mean Method is actually in the lead, as we simply have no information on Limit or Exorsus progress on the boss, so they might actually be getting him to even lower percentages.
      Limit will be facing a tough choice today, though, as their reset has arrived and they must decide whether to "lose" a couple of hours or more re-clearing the raid and getting some much needed extra loot (which is the standard procedure on progress for the top guilds) or risk it and extend their lockout, continuing on G'huun and banking on getting a kill as is. There are still 5 hours left until the US server reset, although it's getting pretty late over there, and it seems Limit has called it a night and will be coming back later and after the reset.
      The other big G'huunian news was a nerf mentioned in the hotfix notes a just a little while ago, but we're not exactly sure when it went live, or how big of an impact it might have on the kill attempts.
      G'huun nerf (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Uldir G’huun Bursting Boils should no longer spawn close to the boss. In other kill news, we had three more guilds down Mythrax the Unraveler and move on to 7/8 and get to try G'huun: Memento with the World 4th, EU 3rd and Pieces completing the World top 5, while Jitianhong just missed it but did get the Asia first on the boss! Wildcard Gaming almost got the 6th kill as well, but they managed to miss it by 1% as Jitianhong got it just a few minutes after that try.
      And so we're on to the possibly final day of the Uldir Mythic race, as G'huun seems to have made it at the very least to the US reset intact, with just 1 day left for him to officially be the toughest endboss of the first raid of an expansion since Nefarian 2.0 back in Cataclysm (that's presuming the Asian guilds don't get him the day after that, but it seems very unlikely)! Today will be very exciting, as Method have a bit of time with the boss, with only Exorsus potentially being a threat, as Limit (most probably) re-clear.
