That's neat and all, but to be fair Atal'Dazar is by far the weakest dungeon in terms of boss mechanics. The only boss I could see them having issues with is Vol'Kaal but even in the vod you can see even he was easy.  It would be much cooler to see them do a +15 Shrine or King's Rest.

Obviously so, but you must keep in mind its VERY hard to complete a +15 on any dungeon with the gear available right now. Even a simple +10 will drop 370 gear next week and these guys average 355 item level right now (brought down by Cirra, the healer).

They had to go through 5 or so +15 keys before RNG'ing into this one, which was finally doable. Funnily enough they got Freehold afterwards and proceeded to try +16 (and fail) before doing the world 2nd on the resulting +15 key lol.

Hope they keep it up, next level dungeon running here!

Oh trust me, I am aware of this. A key of that size is no joke, but Atal'Dazar it's a whole different story. But still, congrats to them I guess.

They did do +15 Freehold right afterwards to prove it wasn't just because Atal'dazar, lulz :)

Pretty insane I gotta say. For me, that's probably more of an achievement than a +30 back at the end of Legion, as we were all way overpowered.

Totally agree with this. 7.3.2 was just a.. not a really skill race. And lot of people can come with they did around 22-25+ and now they can't even finish 8+ in time : )  (and some of them in this gear like 355+). Sure as solo is impossible to even hit +10 in time.

Mistweaver, huh? And Prot Paladin? Definitely not a super meta team but I can understand how it worked.

Really?!?  A group completes a M +15 anything and that's your feedback.  You must be a real joy to those around you 🙂 .  Nicely done to the group from Kjell's Angels - I can't even imagine doing a M +15 anything at the moment.  Maybe we'll get lucky and Rhondis will post their awesome +15 Shrine or King's Rest win this week to shut me up 🙂 .

You are aware that this is my opinion right? I was not impressed by them clearing Atal'Dazar, but I did after all congratulate them on getting the world first +15. Besides, Seksi had mentioned they finished Freehold in time after Atal'Dazar so more kudos to them. 

Also welcome to Icy Veins, we are happy to have ya!

Very much a super meta team .. in Battle for Azeroth.

Class balance is completely upturned from Legion. MW monks and Hpriests who were terrible are now the best healers. Same with Prot Paladins who were non-existant in Legion.

I believe you that they're good, but they're not meta because it hasn't dispersed out to the community. Parse count in M+ dungeons on Warcraftlogs:

Healers:

1. Druid Restoration 7,481

2. Priest Discipline 6,860

3. Paladin Holy 5,630

4. Monk Mistweaver 4,953

5. Priest Holy 4,106

6. Shaman Restoration 3,480

 

Tanks:

1. Death Knight Blood 9,264

2. Demon Hunter Vengeance 6,372

3. Paladin Protection 6,087

4. Monk Brewmaster 5,276

5. Druid Guardian 2,933

6. Warrior Protection 2,547

 

I have my confidence that they could have chosen any combination of classes and done a +15 on time. And there will probably be more this week with different classes. It's great to see variety and to see classes that were under-represented in Legion making a comeback.

Jesus, they made Blood Dk's really good this expac it seems! I am actually really surprised that Prot Warriors are at the bottom of the barrel.

Blood DK's have always been strong at the start of an expansion, because their Mastery provides a strong absorb allowing them to push harder content earlier than other classes. That's been the case every expansion since Pandaria when they were the undisputed kings of Challenge Mode dungeons.

This time around, Demon Hunters got a substantial boost to their hit point pools, and Paladins got the Holy Shield talent allowing them to block spell damage - plus the ability to dispel Disease effects which is indispensible in several dungeons.

Protection Warriors have high DPS, and some players are getting good results out of them just based on that, but they definitely are in trouble on the M+ side.

And so far they are the only ones who can block spell damage since Blizzard removed spell resistance?

Unless you're using one of those weird Fire Resistance pieces, yup! It's not as good as a full absorb, and it doesn't work against all forms of magical damage, but looking at Details it is a pretty nice contributor to our survival as well as providing a nice amount of DPS from the riposte effect.

Well that's one way to popularize prot pallies than! I didn't see them all that often last expansion. Mainly because Brewmasters, Blood Dk, and Druid seemed to be the meta mid to late Legion.

Thanks Rhondis for taking my comments in stride.  I was amazed anyone had completed a M+15 at that point (even now).  My comment was more of a LOL articulation of the differences in our communication styles than an intended jab.  My style is more along the lines of "Wow!  Amazing accomplishment!  I'd love to see something similar for Shrine or Kings if anyone does it soon."

While I'm thinking of it, has anyone posted anything for a M+15 Shrine, Kings or Underrot - as Rhondis mentioned, those have been real @$$-kickers for us, especially with Fortified+Sanguine+Grevious+... (our healers don't wanna touch em).

Anyway, take care and thanks again - cheers.

It's been a little over a month, I still don't find this amazing and yet you do. Your passive aggressive comments won't change my opinion either, so calm down and move on friend.

I was genuinely complimenting you on your style following my comments which could have been worded better ...  Not sure what else to say.  Any "passive aggressive" is interpretation, not intent.

      The official WoW forums are getting a makeover, following suit with the Overwatch, HotS and BlizzCon ones! After an 8 hour maintenance tomorrow we'll be getting improved functionality including real time thread updates, the return of the Blizz tracker, infinite scroll for the threads, a new advanced search option, as well as new notification options and more!
      Forum Upgrades (source)
      As some of you may know, over the last several months we've been implementing new forums for a few of our titles, including Overwatch and Heroes of the Storm, as well as BlizzCon. These new forums allow you to more easily navigate current topics, encourage more constructive discussions, and reward positive contributions to the community.
      We are now ready for World of Warcraft to transition to these new forums. This Thursday, November 15, the current World of Warcraft forums will be going into maintenance starting at 8 AM Pacific. We estimate this process should take approximately 8 hours.
      Note: We will be migrating over any active threads from the last two weeks to allow ongoing community discussions to continue as seamlessly as possible. Once maintenance is complete, the old forums will remain available in read-only mode for the foreseeable future, so you’ll be able to easily reference back to anything that wasn’t automatically transferred to the new forums.
      Here’s a few of the new features we’re excited about:
      Tracking and Updates
      • The Blizz Tracker has returned to help you quickly find official posts
      • You can now easily find threads that you’ve previously viewed
      • Better text formatting
      • Threads now update in real time without needing to refresh
      • Threads now infinitely scroll – no more navigating page by page
      • The forums will also remember what you’ve read and where you left off!
      Sorting and Search
      • A new “Advanced Search” feature will make looking for older posts easier
      • You can now sort posts by “Top” or “Latest” with configurable timeframes.
      Notifications
      • You can now enable notifications for when you are tagged in posts and replies
      Flagging
      • The “report post” feature has been upgraded to a flagging system with multiple options
      In another blue post today, we've found out when exactly the new ring of Azerite powers will arrive in 8.1, and it's pretty much as expected: it's coming with the PvP Season start/raid opening in January.
      5th Azerite Ring Release Date (source)
      The fifth ring of Azerite Traits is definitely coming in Tides of Vengeance. You’ll see it on new gear when Season 2 begins, on the same day the Battle of Dazar’alor Raid opens in January. At that time, the item levels of rewards from dungeons, PvP, emissaries, Warfronts, and everything else that drops Azerite gear will go up, and all of the new Azerite gear from those endgame sources will have a fifth ring of Azerite Traits.
      In the next few weeks, we’ll advance the state of the PTR to test Season 2. You’ll then see the new ring on rewards, the new Mythic Keystone affix, and other content that’s coming with Season 2.

      War Mode has been improved recently, with a hotfix that will force a more even ratio of both factions present in each shard. While it's unclear when "some time ago" was exactly, this should help with the faction imbalance players have been encountering. It won't, however, be an instant nor absolute fix for the issue, as it still takes some time for the shard to balance itself out. There will also be more improvements coming with 8.1, including better rewards for the underrepresented faction in the shard.
      War Mode Faction Balance (source)
      Some time ago we made a hotfix to War Mode which enforces all War Mode shards that have both Alliance and Horde in them to have a stricter, more even ratio. We’ve been monitoring the results and so far we’ve noticed a significant improvement in “fair and balanced” shards. So much so that it’s safe to say that if you are Alliance, and you see Horde in the outdoor world in War Mode, you are a relatively even horde to alliance ratio shard. There are some rare exceptions, such as when a raid of 40 players enter a zone. It may take a bit for the “shard manager” to compensate and balance the shard.

      We do have some plans in store in Tides of Vengeance (Patch 8.1) to entice the underrepresented faction with greater rewards to increase participation and create more active Horde/Allianced mixed War Mode shards. The intent of those rewards is not to give the underrepresented faction some “compensation” for being outnumbered in a War Mode shard (since that really can’t happen anymore).

      We're also looking forward to what you all think about the Incursions in War Mode for 8.1, since it brings Horde and Alliance to the same location which should create some pretty fun skirmishes.

      It's time for more battles as raid testing returns this weekend (and Thursday)! Both factions get to check the bosses out, as well as the opposing faction's bosses using the new flashback mechanic. We're getting both Heroic and Mythic tested this time around, with the first wing of LFR opening on Friday and staying open throughout the weekend.
      November 15 - 19 (source)
      On Thursday, November 15th and Friday, November 16th we will be conducting raid tests of the Battle of Dazar'alor. After testing has ended up Friday, we will open the first wing of Raid Finder.
      BOTH FACTIONS:
      Testing is open for both factions. However, for some bosses, raid members will temporarily re-live events as the opposite faction using a story flashback.
      Thursday, November 15th
      Stormwall Blockade - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      Jaina - Heroic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Friday, November 16th
      Opulence - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      13:00 PST (16:00 EST, 22:00 CET)
      King Rastakhan - Mythic Battle of Dazar'alor
      14:00 PST (17:00 EST, 23:00 CET)
      Siege of Dazar'alor/Defense of Dazar'alor Raid Finder
      16:00 PST (19:00 EST, 1:00 CET)
      As always, this testing schedule is very fluid and subject to the realities of a test environment. We might have to change the time of a testing session, change the bosses being tested, or cancel a test entirely, due to bugs, server hardware issues, etc. Keep an eye on this forum for the latest information, and thank you in advance for testing and providing feedback.
      Q: How do I get into the raid zone?
      A: In Zuldazar, Boralus, Dalaran, Orgrimmar, or Stormwind, you may speak to Nexus-Lord Donjon Rade III in order to teleport into the raid zone while it is open for testing. (The option to teleport into a zone will not be available when the zone is not open for testing.)
      Q: What character should I use to test the raid?
      A: Whichever you prefer. We will be scaling players' effective level to 120 for raid testing, and their item level to an appropriate threshold for the encounter(s) being tested.
      Q: How long does testing last?
      A: The primary purpose of testing is to give us the information we need to balance the encounters, evaluate how mechanics are playing out in practice, and identify bugs. Once we're satisfied that we've received that information for a given boss, we'll be shutting down testing. Usually this takes anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours, but there are no guarantees.

      In the latest Method interview, we learned how the new Reaping affix will play out in Tides of Vengeance.
      In Battle for Azeroth, Blizzard brought Seasons to Mythic+. Infested was the first Seasonal affix inspired by G'huun. The affix will be soon replaced with Reaping in Season 2 that will start early next year.
      Affix Description Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave. How Reaping Works
      Reaping was inspired by Battle of Dazar'alor and Bwonsamdi. Every 20% on the Enemy forces bar, Bwonsamdi will resurrect spirits of all the trash creatures you had killed up to that point and they will charge at you no matter where you're at. This happens a total of 5 times per dungeon. You will be in full control of when this occurs, so planning/adjusting your pulls will be crucial. One of the ideas they had with this was to change how you approach the dungeon. Blood Moon will rise whenever Bwonsamdi calls on his powers and there's also something cool that might happen after you lose the timer. You can also check out the video below, where the devs talk about the affix and upcoming changes to Necrotic.

      It's time to poke our friends over at exceL and get some hints and tips for Mythic+! It's up to you guys to dig up all the interesting info and ask the right questions, whether it's about the recent MDI Invitational, Mythic+ in general or even next season's new Reaping affix!
      As you'll remember, they rose all the way to the top in this year's Mythic Dungeon Invitational and claimed the grand prize, as well as more recently participated in the MDI All Stars Invitational at BlizzCon earlier this month and the org itself has been a core part of the scene built around multiple games since 2014, fielding teams in League of Legends, Street Fighter V, and more.
      Tthe Mythic+ team consists of Divinefield, Cirra, Ashine, Dorullkjell and Herudra, so submit your questions right here in the comments over the next 7 days and the awesome players of exceL's Angels will answer when we collect all of them.
      Have any questions for the M+ team? Come and ask them!
