Mythic Keystone Customization in Battle for Azeroth?

Recommended Posts

27843-mythic-keystone-reward-increases.p

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.

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.

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 :)

      Allied Races and the Pandaren will be finally able to become Death Knights in the near future, as Blizzard added creature textures together with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Darion Mograine in 8.3 Build 32151.
      It seems Bolvar is going to forge a new line of Death Knights in Patch 8.3. Death Knight textures for all Allied Races (Including Lightforged Draenei) have been added to the game along with encrypted sound files for Bolvar Fordragon and Highlord Darion Mograine, who's likely going to narrate the new Death Knight intro. There's also an encrypted map of an area, which is likely the one of Icecrown Citadel.

      Datamined Pandaren Male Death Knight Texture
      It seems there's going to be a brand new Death Knight intro, but at this time, we don't know if the Allied Races are going to start at level 20 or 55 and how that's going to affect Heritage Armor acquisition.

      In this week's 8.3 Build 32151, Wrathion's Legendary Cloak has been renamed and updated to have a higher base item level.
      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is now called Ashjra'kamas, Shrould of Resolve and the base item level is up to 445.
      The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces the Sanity loss from all sources by a percentage, which is mandatory for completing Horrific Visions, as your Sanity bar depletes and the reduction allows you to stay there longer and earn better rewards. You'll upgrade the item level of the cloak with Horrific Cores up to a maximum item level of 475 at Rank 15.
      Rank Item Level Reduces Sanity by % 1 445 5% 2 445 8% 3 445 10% 4 445 13% 5 455 25% 6 455 28% 7 455 30% 8 455 33% 9 455 35% 10 465 50% 11 465 53% 12 465 55% 13 465 58% 14 465 60% 15 475 75% You can check out our initial preview of the cloak here and we've updated the article to include the latest changes.

      At Ranks 5 and 10, the cloak gets an enhanced appearance that is added to your transmog tab.

      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud is a Legendary Cloak given to us by Wrathion in Patch 8.3 that can be leveled up to Rank 15, just like Heart of Azeroth using Corrupting Core and Horrific Core. 
      Patch 8.3 Build 32151 Update
      The cloak has been renamed and has a higher item level as of the latest build. You can find more information in the article linked below.
      Other Patch 8.3 Content:
      Visions of N'Zoth Class Changes Visions of N'Zoth Development Notes Official Mechagnomes & Vulpera Preview Corrupted Rings with Kiss/Curse Effects from Ny'alotha Assaults in Patch 8.3 Vulpera Tidbits: Racial Mount, Shaman Totems, Hunter Pet N'Zoth's Model in Patch 8.3 Mechagnomes & Vulpera Unlock Requirements Ny'alotha Raid Boss Names & Descriptions Goblin & Worgen Heritage Armor Sets Preview Visions of N'Zoth Content Update Preview Initial Ny'alotha Raid Testing: October 11th The cloak's effect (Blacktalon's Experimental Protection) reduces Sanity loss from all sources, especially important within Horrific Visions, which cannot be completed effectively without it..

      In Horrific Visions, your goal is to kill enemies and a miniboss before your Sanity bar fully depletes.
      As previously noted, you can level up the cloak. The initial item level is 400 (Rank 1) and the effect reduces your Sanity loss from all sources by 5%. When you purchase the cloak on PTR, however, the base item level is 430, but it becomes lower when you upgrade it for the first time, which is likely a bug.

      At Rank 15, Experimental Blacktalon Shroud has an item level of 425 and the effect reduces your Sanity loss from all sources by up to 75%.

      Experimental Blacktalon Shroud gains an enhanced appearance at Rank 5 and Rank 10.

      Ahead of tomorrow's PTR testing, Blizzard deployed a new build to 8.3 PTR with fixes for the recently-previewed Alpaca mounts.
      The mounts will likely be tied to the new reputations in Visions of N'Zoth. Previously, the saddle was incorrectly placed on the model, but the issue has been fixed in 8.3 Build 32151, and here are the mounts in their full glory!
