  • The next stage of MDI starts in two weeks (March 27).
  • The objective is to complete three dungeons with preset affixes as fast as possible.
  • The final Time Trials score is the sum total of each team's fastest time on each dungeon.
  • All teams will have unlimited tries on the Tournament Realm.
  • Only the top 8 scores for each region move onto the Regional Bracket stage.

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 :).

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas is now live talking about Patch 8.1 in Battle for Azeroth.
      It's time for the Alliance to strike back. Tides of Vengeance is the first content patch of BfA. Incursions are a new feature reminiscent of Legion assaults. We're going to be looking at Saurfang, Tyrande (what is she feeling? Aftermath of seeing Teldrassil burn in front of their eyes) and what has become of Vol'jin. All this will be explored in Tides of Vengeance. Heritage Armor is coming to other races. Dwarves and Blood Elves are first. No massive rep grind is behind this. If you're at max level and Exalted with Ironforge, you can start the quest for racial identity and get Heritage armor. On the Blood Elf side they will explore the Dead Scar (not many know that it was the aftermath of Lich King's incursion). New Warfront is coming. Alliance is going to try and reclaim Darkshore. The Warfront is heavily themed after Undead & Night Elves. The outdoor zone of Darkshore will be updated similar to Arathi Highlands. We're going to have two new Islands. A vrykul-themed Island as well as a gloomy abandoned Gilnean city. New Raid Zone in Zuldazar: Quite different from any raid they've done before. The foe in this raid is the opposite faction. They have two complete separate experiences. Slight spoilers ahead, one of the thing that the Alliance War Campaign is leading to is to strike the Zandalari Fleet. You will join the Alliance forces, fight your way up to the pyramid ascending to the top to confront Rastakhan. Horde players will rush to its defense, beginning on the northern side of the pyramid ending with fighting Jaina in the High Seas. Six bosses are going to be introduced in this raid. The Crucible of Storms (under Shrine of the Storm) raid with 2 bosses that opens later. Hints at Azshara. Trial of Valor of the expansion. It is going to give the Horde more Stormsong Valley lore, because they haven't had the chance to be properly introduced to the zone. The patch is going to refine Azerite traits, the goal is to make them more complex, closer to set bonuses that have been removed. Champions of Azeroth reputation will be made account-wide. Game Director Ion Hazzikostas revealed what's coming in Patch 8.1 titled Tides of Vengeance.

      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.

      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.
