With the Proving Grounds of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational (MDI) wrapping up, we wanted to share more information on the next stage of the event, the MDI Time Trials!

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MDI TIME TRIALS

For last year’s first Mythic Dungeon Invitational, only the top 8 teams were invited to take part in the next stage. This year, we’re allowing even more teams to compete for their share of the $200,000 global prize pool. All eligible teams who complete the MDI Proving Grounds will receive an invitation to the Tournament Realms, which are specifically configured realms for the next stage of the tournament. All players will have access to the same top-end gear to equip their character and prove that they have what it takes to be crowned as the global Mythic Dungeon Invitational champions.

WHAT ARE THE TIME TRIALS?

Kicking off Tuesday, March 27, the Time Trials is a way for us to judge the overall skill, expertise, and flexibility of teams as they tackle three dungeons across different difficulties. Some teams are good at pushing high keys, or surviving nasty affixes, or maybe they’ve mastered a single dungeon. But in the MDI, teams need to have all these skills to thrive and make it to the top.

...

DUNGEON 1
MAW OF SOULS +20

Bursting
Quaking
Fortified

...

DUNGEON 2
UPPER KARAZHAN +22

Raging
Explosive
Tyrannical

...

DUNGEON 3
NELTHARION'S LAIR +24

Sanguine
Grievous
Fortified

These three dungeons will be the sole focus for teams during the week of Time Trials and all teams will have unlimited tries on the Tournament Realm to refine and master these dungeons.

Just completing the dungeons in time won’t be enough and teams will need to push themselves to see how fast they can run each of the dungeons. We’ll compile each team’s fastest time on each dungeon and add all three times together for their Time Trials score. Only the top 8 scores for each region move onto the Regional Bracket stage, so expect teams to be fiercely competitive to stay on top of the pack.

Make sure you submit your scores from the Proving Grounds period. All entries must be received by March 16 by 3:00 p.m. PDT. Only dungeons completed during the Proving Ground period will be considered.

Keep on top of all the latest news on our new MDI hub!

I love these.  Honestly almost as compelling as raid chasing, but significantly easier to make 'new content' for. 

Agreed.  Blizzard has done well with the MDI and Mythic plus to bring PvE into the esports scene.  I know there's not a lot of call for esports like competition during a WF Mythic raid teir, but the MDI brings that into the fold.

@Stan so my question is, Is the Upper a +22? It doesn't have a number next to it, so I'm assuming it's a 22 since the Maw is 20, and the Nelth's is 24.

Upper Karazhan is indeed +22. Updated the post :).

      The latest Mage class changes from Shadowlands Beta revolve around Venthyr Covenant Ability and Legendary Power tuning.
      Mage
      Mirrors of Torment has been updated to grant you Brain Freeze, Fire Blast cooldown reduction, or Mana when a mirror is consumed, based on your current specialization. It can now proc from auto-attacks, but can only occur once every 6 seconds.
      Mirrors of Torment (Venthyr Covenant Ability) Arcane: Conjures 3 mirrors to torment the enemy for 20 25 seconds. Whenever the target attacks, casts a spell or ability, a mirror is consumed to inflict (75% 60% of Spell Power) Shadow damage and their movement and cast speed are slowed by 15%.

      He's at it again... This time around it's a ridiculous amount of healing, but only outside of Kul Tiras and Zandalar, and only for Alliance players. The main ingredient for this particular crazy stunt is the Gently Squeezed Toad, which you can summon every few seconds, then attack for over a million damage due to the damage aura that makes you deal more damage to low level mobs. And that's it, you just need some amount of leech to get crazy healing very often, with 500K individual heals and around 50-60K HPS with about 30% leech in Rextroy's specific example! The only problem is, this only works for Alliance, as the toy is only sold by Old Loola in the WoD Ally garrison and is BoP, so Horde need not apply.

      Check out the full video for the details, especially focusing on the World PvP uses:
      Here are more details on the technique, including a useful macro!

      Reddit user Granny_knows_best spotted that using Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner gives you a hat in Flight Form. Another Redditor found out it also works in flapping Moonkin Form.
      Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner is a toy that has a chance to drop from Dread Ship Vazuvius on Timeless Isle. When used, you get transformed into a skeleton, but Druids will receive a hat in Flight Form.

      Druid in Flight Form receives a hat from Rime of the Time-Lost Mariner.
      Furthermore, Redditor DonSerrot confirmed this also works with Legion's Archdruid's Lunarwing Form and flapping Moonkin Form.

      It's time to look at the Hunter class changes and all their Covenant Abilities underwent some changes in the latest Shadowlands Beta build. Blizzard also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Hunter
      Resonating Arrow radius increased. When a mob leaves the area, you can ignore LoS towards them for 4 more seconds. Flayed Shot's bonus Kill Shot no longer costs Focus. The design of Wild Spirits has been simplified, and there's no longer a difference in behavior when using single target versus area damage with this ability. Blizzard has also reduced the Focus cost of Cobra Shot.
      Death Chakram (Necrolord Covenant Ability) has been fixed to no longer chain the targets under crowd control effects that break upon taking damage. Flayed Shot (Venthyr Covenant Ability) - Fire a shot at your enemy, causing them to bleed for (250% of Attack power) Shadow damage over 20 seconds. Each time Flayed Shot deals damage, you have a 15% chance to gain Flayer's Mark, causing your next Kill Shot to be free and usable on any target, regardless of their current health. Resonating Arrow (Kyrian Covenant Ability) - Fire a resonating arrow to the target location that fills deals (20% of Attack Power) Arcane damage to any enemy in the area, and fill the area with echoing anima for 10 seconds. The effect causes your attacks to ignore line of sight to enemies in the area, and you have 30% increased critical strike chance against them. Leaving the area of echoing anima will still allow the hunter to ignore line of sight towards the enemy for 4 seconds. Wild Spirits (Night Fae Covenant Ability) - Evoke the energy of Wild Spirits at the target location, applying Wild dealing (25% of Attack Power) Nature damage and apply Hunter's Mark to all enemy targets within the area for 15 seconds, increasing the damage you deal to them by 5%. While the Wild Spirits are active, each damaging ability you use against a target affected by the Wild Mark strikes the target or your pet use against a target in the area will strike up to 5 nearby targets for (45% of Attack Power) Nature damage. Beast Mastery
      Cobra Shot now costs 35 Focus (was 45).
