Season 2 Mythic Keystone Affix: Reaping

Recommended Posts

HOYzSiG.jpg

The Infested affix is retiring with opening of the second raid of the expansion in Patch 8.1. Every Mythic Season comes with a new affix and in this week's PTR 8.1 Build 28202, we have a brand new level 10 affix called Reaping themed after the Loa of Death.

Affix Description
Reaping Non-boss enemies are empowered by Bwonsamdi and periodically seek vengeance from beyond the grave.

We don't know exactly how the affix works, but it seems that you'll have to kite non-attackable spirits of slain enemies for a certain amount of time before they disappear. Any wild guesses? Let us know in the comments!

Check out our Tides of Vengeance hub for the latest Patch 8.1 news!

My guess is that it works similar as the shrine buff of Bwonsamdi you can get as Horde : 

  1. Ghosts spawn from dead bodies, focusing someone and dealing massive damage upon reaching the focused target
  2. Dead bodies are "pulsating", so that they deal AOE damage in a small range
  3. a combination of the before mentioned effects

Maybe they will be like the Ghosts from the 2nd Boss from waycrest manor, that appear when he burns, and just hit everything in their close vicinity.  I hope it will be like each non-boss enemy slain, will appear close to a player and avenge his own death immediately. Following that player for about 10 seconds, trying to reach him but damage all friendly units in his path.

That would make aoe scenarios, where several mobs die at the same time, interesting movement tasks.

well since they are empowered by bwonsamdi, hopefully they will shout insults at us while we deal with...whatever this turns out to be.

      Dunegorger Kraulok is up this week and drops Slightly Damp Pile of Fur, so don't forget to head to Vol'dun and defeat the world boss for a chance at Mollie.
      Slightly Damp Pile of Fur is one of the Alpaca mounts added in Visions of N'Zoth. It has a small chance to drop from Dunegorger Kraulok in Vol'dun. Battle for Azeroth world bosses are on a fixed rotation, so you won't be able to kill Kraulok for a few weeks. You can try to kill the world boss on your alts too for an increased chance at Mollie.
      "The kind nature of alpacas makes them perfect as companions for the intrepid adventurer."

      We're back with the weekly Mythic+ updates, as this week sees Fire rocket even further away from the other specs and Fury rises the most among top players! Luckily Fire will be toned down come 9.1, but it's going to remain the extreme top dog for a while more.
      Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
      This past week was Tyrannical, Inspiring, Necrotic (and Prideful).
      All Keys
      Fire remains far above all the other specs this week in the 95th as even Balance and Outlaw, who were hanging in there the last two weeks, fall back down with the rest of them! The two specs also switch places in 2nd and 3rd, as Fury is the main mover in the top, jumping 2 spots to land just outside the top 5, as Affliction falls one to accommodate it. Frost Mage jumped the most spots overall, however, sneaking into the top 10 with a 4 spot leap, as Assassination drops a few to make room.

      Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      All percentiles follows the top ones this week, with Balance taking 2nd and Fury rising, with Elemental actually topples Marksmanship, unlike in the 95th.

      Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      High Keys
      The +15 crowd is as stable as ever, with only Elemental rising a significant amount, and Assassination falling off 3 spots but remaining in the top 10. Feral had a decent week, dragging itself up from dead last a whole 5 spots, leaving Demo and BM to languish at the bottom. Increasingly this bracket seems to be the actual most realistic benchmark for the specs, as more and more players play in this particular sandbox.

      Mythic+15 All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
      Th twenties are actually quite stable this week and it seems the Subtletly game is up, as it spends another week down around the bottom. Shadow also dropped a little, with the biggest mover being Feral, who went down to the penultimate spot.

      In this week's 9.1 build, Blizzard made the legendary Hunter bow from Sylvanas upgradable.
      Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, the legendary Hunter bow dropped by Sylvanas Windrunner in Sanctum of Domination, can be upgraded with two items that drop on higher difficulties.
      Wraithwisp Sinew drops on Heroic difficulty and improves the bow to item level 246. Ethereal Fletching drops on Mythic difficulty and the item improves the bow to item level 259. Hunters will be able to obtain Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper, which grants them the Wailing Arrow ability, and a quiver (Dark Ranger's Quiver) with a unique effect that synergizes well with the bow (Withering Fire) in Chains of Domination.

      Wielders of the bow will also earn the following Feat of Strength achievement that was added this week in Build 39015 - Rae'shalare, Death's Whisper.
