Mythic Keystone Seasons Coming in Battle for Azeroth

Recommended Posts

A Seasonal affix has been added to the game along with achievements hinting at Mythic Keystone Seasons in Battle for Azeroth.

From Slootbag's PAX East 2018 interview it's clear that Blizzard wants to add Seasonal affixes to the game in Battle for Azeroth and make achievements more in line with Ahead of the Curve / Cutting Edge achievements.

Seasonal Affixes

Inspired by Uldir's final boss G'huun, we found an interesting new affix called Infested.

Affix Description
Infested Non-Boss enemies have been infested with a Spawn of G'huun.

Seasonal Achievements

In the latest Beta Build 26707, they've added the following achievements related to Mythic+ Seasons.

I like the idea in theory, but it depends on the rewards if it matters or not.

M+ never about "physical" rewards, its' about RESPECT!

Btw hope they bring more goals than this two.

Err I guess so, I just want some decent cosmetics, because I think everyone agrees that Legion dungeon transmogs were a) hideous b) repetitive.  I'd really like to see them do something like they do with raids and PvP, extra tints for doing the content at the hardest level.

Like

N/H/0-5: Base LFR pleb look
6-10: Slightly better.
11-15: Better again
16-20: Pretty damn good.
20+: God-Tier.

It would work with your idea of respect too, walking around with full 20+ transmog would like working around in full T3 back in classic.

Sorry, nope. There are a ton of players just doing 1 weekly mythic + key at lvl 15 to just get the best reward. But its okay, if you feel more respected by doing mythic +, this is also a good thing :-)!

Rewards would be nice but just the achievement will make me care about doing all m+15 this time around :)

Love the idea.

More groups searching for rewards, means more chances for peole to earn them and more interest in them overall.

Even if its just achieves and toys, its super easy to do and I cant imagine the programming part of it is 'expensive' for Blizzard.

All that matters for M+ anyway is your R.IO score and ability to pick and switch to current FOTM class.

Eh. Smart people do them (easily) with guildies.

Unless "20+" means less than 0.1% obtain it by the end of the expansion, this isn't going to be happening.

Well it was an example but honestly what percentage of the player base is timing +20 keys? A very small one I'd say. I know I'm not, I've timed exactly one +20 and that was on an easy week, I mostly hover around 18/19.

I hope that they make mythic plus more meaningful in bfa. I do endless mythic + but all my gear is from the few hours of the week I spend clearing the raid and the weekly cache for M+. I honestly barely do anything besides the weekly these days because the reward is so little compared to the time spent.

 

Also, this is kind of off topic, I know they had mentioned how weapons wouldn't be titan forged, and I'm very concerned about that, especially in M+. Cuz it was meant to be at least a partial alternative to raiding and forcing me to go to raids for weapons would be annoying.

I'm pretty sure the way M+ loot is handled will change, at least slightly, in regards to how it warforges/titanforges. Frankly it has to, other than the cache very a lot people are very unlikely get a non-forged upgrade from a 15, hell the cache itself hasn't gave my main an upgrade (or even an offspec upgrade) in months.

M+ was the big hit of legion as well, they'd have to be mad to neuter it as a gearing choice.

      Handclaw is back to his race/class armor set roots, and as he mentioned in our recent interview, he's taking another swing at a set he'd already created. He said he views all of the sets as just a starting off point, and it seems the Tauren paladin one needed a remake! We got both an illustration style piece and and in-game armor looking one this time around, as well as a timelapse of how it was created!
        
      Some really impressive work there, and definitely better than the original he'd made before:

      And here's the creation process for the illustration:

      Twilight Dev 3 and Masterful 3! Another reset has come to MOTHER, the Preserved Contaminants/corruption effect vendor, with the US realms getting the new stock while EU realms need to wait a bit more, with their reset arriving today at 9 PM CET. It's again time to get your Echoes of Ny'alotha ready and get what you're missing, until June 9th when the list resets again.
      Avoidant Rank 1 (8 Corruption) - 2,400 Echoes
        Racing Pulse  Rank 1 (15 Corruption) - 4,125 Echoes
        Strikethrough  Rank 1 (10 Corruption) - 3,000 Echoes
        Surging Vitality Rank 2 (20 Corruption) - 5,000 Echoes
        Void Ritual Rank 2 (35 Corruption) - 7,875 Echoe
        Masterful Rank 3 (20 Corruption) - 5,000 Echoes
        Twilight Devastation Rank 3 (75 Corruption) - 15,000 Echoes
        You can still buy last week's Contaminants on Eu servers, with the list here.

      Here come some more PvP adjustments, as Corrupted Glad Spite and Breach get tweaked, along with the Versatile Corruption Effect, Reaping the Flames, Conflict and Strife and the Mistweaver Chrysalis talent.
      PvP Tuning (source)
      We’re working on a set of PvP tuning changes that will go live with scheduled weekly maintenance (early on June 9 in this region). This is what we’re currently testing:
      Items
      Corrupted Gladiator's Spite can once again stack more quickly when multiple Corrupted Gladiator’s Spite trinkets are used against a target. Void Portal summoned by Corrupted Gladiator's Breach is now slightly larger and easier to interact with when there are nearby units. Corruption Effects
      Versatile ’s effectiveness has been reduced by 33% when engaged in combat with enemy players. Azerite Essences
      Reaping Flames (Major – Rank 3) no longer activates on player-controlled targets such as pets, totems, or guardians. Resolved an issue that prevented Conflict and Strife (Major – Rank 2) effect from providing additional defensive benefit from versatility under the effects of certain class stuns. Monk
      Mistweaver Chrysalis (PvP Talent) now reduces the cooldown of Life Cocoon by 25 seconds (was 45 seconds). As always, we’ll let you know if there are any further changes to be made, or adjustments to those above, and we’ll report the final live changes in our Hotfixes Update.
      Thanks!
