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 🙂

Good for them.

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.

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!

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

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.

      It's a good idea to wait and turn your Emissary quests in after the latest content update goes live tomorrow, and here's why.
      Artifact Knowledge Enabled Again
      Artifact Knowledge catchup will be enabled again tomorrow and the amount of Artifact Power needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth will gradually decrease starting the week of January 22.

      Talanji's Expedition Emissary rewards 1,000 Artifact Power. Tomorrow, the amount of XP needed to level up your Heart of Azeroth will decrease, resulting in more Experience for the neckpiece.
      Improved Emissary Rewards
      Item level of Azerite gear rewards from Emissaries will be increased in Season 2. Hold off turning in the quest for a chance to receive Season 2 Azerite gear with the new outer ring.

      The Zandalari Empire Emissary rewards an Azerite Armor Cache today on US realms. Tomorrow, Azerite gear acquired from Emissary World Quests will have an increased item level and you will have a chance to receive new Azerite gear with the new outer ring, so don't turn the quest in just yet!
      If you're playing in the EU region, you should hold off turning in your World Quest Emissaries until Wednesday, unless they reward Gold.

      Forbes recently interviewed Morgan Day about Mythic+ and the Mythic Dungeon Invitational and here's a recap of the interview.
      Check out the full interview over at Forbes
      Interview Highlights
      Changes are coming to the MDI in 2019 and you can find an overview in this post. The beginning of MDI closely lines up with the introduction of Reaping and Season 2. Mythic+ is extremely popular and half of the players at level 120 are engaging in Mythic+ content. Certain creatures within dungeons have mechanics that quickly ramp up damage and it was necessary to put a soft cap in those instances, because the fights would become impossible on Tyrannical. There's a fix set of affix combinations that activate each week. The Fortified + Teeming affix combo hasn't been adjusted for Season 2, because Infested that caused a lot of frustrating pulls in combination with said affixes is going away and with Reaping coming in, the system is going to take care of itself. Monsters summoned by the Season 2 Reaping affix don't gain Fortified themselves, but the creature will spawn at half the health of the creature that dies, so it will gain a small percentage of Fortified. There are currently no plans to come up with a system that allows easy key re-rolling. Instead, they'd like to adjust dungeons and bring the huge outliers down a bit. They adjusted King's Rest about a month ago.

      Improvements to Azerite Armor are coming on January 22. Blizzard added a new outer ring with two spec-specific traits to all armor acquired after Mythic Season 2 starts and the new raid opens. You will be able to get the new gear from PvP Season 2, Battle of Dazar'alor, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Titan Residuum vendor, who sells upgraded wares at a higher cost.
      New Azerite powers will become available in Tides of Vengeance Part II. Check out our updated Class guides for more details. 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge will be added over the course of January 22 through March. The catchup has been disabled for now, but it will commence soon. Reaching Friendly, Honored, and Revered and with Champions of Azeroth will unlock the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account. The cost of Azerite Reforging has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours. Blizzard (Source)
      Since the launch of Battle for Azeroth, players have been empowering their Heart of Azeroth and collecting Azerite armor to gear up for the battles ahead. Since then, we’ve made a variety of adjustments to the system—and we have a few more updates coming with the second part of Tides of Vengeance on January 22 that we’d like go into more detail on today.
      With the release of Battle for Azeroth Season 2, we’re introducing new epic Azerite pieces that you can acquire through a variety of methods, including Season 2 PvP, the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, World Quest Emissaries, and from the Mythic Keystone vendor Thaumaturge Vashreen in Zuldazar and Boralus. These new items will have a fifth ring with additional new trait options and is available at Heart of Azeroth level 15.  
      This new outer ring provides two choices of traits per specialization, giving players an opportunity to find items that have traits they particularly want—and the freedom to create new and interesting combinations that may not have been possible before. This additional ring of traits makes each item have a larger impact on your character’s overall power.
      Outer Ring:
      Powers that reside in the new outer ring provide two additional trait options for each of your character’s available specializations.  Example:
      Moment of Repose (Discipline) (Passive) Pain Suppression applies Atonement to the target and instantly heals them for 15,313. Second Ring:
      Powers that reside on the second ring from the outside will often be influenced by where you collected the piece of armor they’re found on. These powers can also be associated with specific class specializations.. Example:
      Seductive Power (Passive) Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 57 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 stack. Third Ring:
      These powers generally benefit the performance of your in-game role—they’ll provide damage increases for DPS classes, increase damage mitigation for tanks, or bolster healing output for healers. Example:
      Bracing Chill (Passive) Your heals have a chance to apply Bracing Chill. Healing a target with Bracing Chill will heal for an additional 2,574 and move Bracing Chill to a nearby ally (up to 6 times). Fourth Ring:
      These are defensive or utility-oriented powers for your class. Example:
      Vampiric Speed (Passive) When an enemy you harmed dies, you heal for 6,361 and gain 93 Speed for 6 seconds. Fifth Ring:
      Azerite Empowerment is the power that resides at the center, and increases an armor piece’s item level by 5.  New Traits to Discover
      You’ll also find new location-specific traits that scale with item level and are available on gear from the Battle of Dazar’alor raid, including:
      Bonded Souls : Your spells and abilities have a chance to trigger a Soulbond for 15 seconds. During Soulbond, every 5 seconds you and your nearest ally are both healed for 3,456 and gain 141 Haste for 5 seconds. Seductive Power: Your spells and abilities have a chance to conjure Bwonsamdi’s spectral visage, beckoning you closer. If you approach him, gain 26 to all stats for 5 minutes, stacking up to 5 times. If you fail to heed his call, lose 1 Stack.  Treacherous Covenant: Your primary stat is increased by 151 while you are above 50% health. You take 15% increased damage while below 20% health. Azerite Knowledge
      With the start of Season 2, we’re also adding 10 more ranks of Azerite Knowledge over the course of  January 22 through March. Each rank of Artifact Knowledge increases the speed at which your Heart of Azeroth levels up.
      Tides of Vengeance Recap: Trait Updates and Additions
      With the launch of Tides of Vengeance on December 11, we replaced many of the Azerite traits we weren’t happy with and continue to iterate on various elements of the system to provide variety and flexibility in player gear choices.
      NEW TRAITS IN THE DARKSHORE WARFRONT
      It’s a good time to keep an eye on the shifting tides of the Darkshore Warfront. We added many new Azerite Armor traits that are just waiting to be collected, including:
      Ancients' Bulwark: Standing still grants you Deep Roots, increasing your Versatility by 179. Moving instead grants you Uprooted, healing you for 259 every 1 second. Apothecary's Concoctions: Your damaging abilities have a chance to deal 1,262 Plague damage over 6 seconds, and your healing abilities have a chance to restore 2,415 health over 6 seconds. These effects are increased by up to 100% based on the target’s missing health. Endless Hunger: Your Versatility is increased by 179. Moving near an enemy’s corpse consumes their essence, restoring 1,815 health.  Shadow of Elune: Your spells and abilities have a chance to increase your Haste by 465 for 15 seconds. At night, you also gain 10% movement speed for the duration. HEART OF AZEROTH LEVELING AND GEARING UP
      Reaching Friendly, Honored, or Revered reputation with the Champions of Azeroth faction now unlocks the appropriate quests to upgrade your Heart of Azeroth for all characters on your account.  
      The cost to change Azerite traits has been reduced from 72 hours to 24 hours.
      We’ve also added a new way for players who participate in Mythic Keystone Dungeons to gain specific Azerite Armor. These players will be able to earn a new currency—Titan Residuum—which can be used to purchase specific items from Thaumaturge Vashreen now located in either Zuldazar or Boralus. You can read more in our forum post.
      Season 2 and the Battle of Dazar’alor are just around the corner—are you ready for the challenges that await?
