MDI 2019 Proving Grounds Begin Next Week!

Recommended Posts

The MDI 2019 edition is about to begin, redubbed the Mythic Dungeon International, with Proving Grounds arriving with next week's reset! It's a very simple qualification process this time around, as all a team has to do is finish up 5 M+14 dungeons between February 26th and Match 12th, and then it's on to the Time Trials stage (after you sign your runs up)! The Time Trials will take place on the Tournament Realm, so any gear advantage player might have will be removed, making it a very fair competition. Check out the full post below for more details, including the full official rules at the bottom.

The Mythic Dungeon International (MDI), a seasonal competition that showcases the world’s best dungeon-running teams, is about to begin! An invitational no more, this program is designed so that as many people as possible can participate.

The first Proving Grounds of 2019 will run from February 26 PST through March 12 PST (when the dungeons reset in your region). This is the first stage of the MDI – to move on to the Time Trials stage, all you and your team need to do is complete five different level 14 Mythic Keystone Dungeons in time during that period. That’s it!

Schedule for Affixes during Proving Grounds:

Feb 26 - Mar 4 Tyrannical Bursting Skittish Reaping
Mar 5 - Mar 12 Fortified Teeming Quaking Reaping

Once you’ve done that, head on over to the MDI sign-up page and provide all the information we need to verify your runs, so we can get you and your teammates onto the Tournament Realm.

The Tournament Realm will act as your kind of dungeon-running sandbox. On this realm, you will be able to create max-level characters, select your armor and weapon from a range of options, grab some potions and flasks, and build out your talents as you please.

The Tournament Realm is also the place where we’ll be running the Time Trials for MDI East and MDI West, where you’ll have the chance to see how you stack up alongside the competition. We’ll give you more information about the Time Trials as we get closer.

To see if your eligible to participate in the Proving Grounds, check out the 2019 MDI official ruleset!

      This is one of those "obviously not what we hope it is, but maaaybe?" things as Henry Cavill, who was part of many discussions about who should play Arthas last year, just posted an interesting image to his Instagram, as spotted by Warchief_Hammerhands.
      This is 99.99% Witcher-related, and the caption is just a tease (whether it's actually aimed at the Arthas hype or not), but we have seen the actor actually talk about the role of the Lich King previously. In several Instagram replies to one of the many fan photoshops of himself as Arthas, Cavill did seem to show some solid interest in the role, and it all started with an emoji response to this post:
      And here's the complex response, with Blizzard getting tagged:

      He then engaged in some fan interaction, starting with a nod at the previous rumors of him being the next Bond:
           
      And great response to a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
       
        

      Many have actually commented that Cavill might be a bit too old for Arthas at this point, but considering the events on 9.1 and where the story might be going, who's to say an older, post-Maw Arthas isn't in the cards? It seems like a perfect stunt commercial type thing to tease a potentially bigger project like a TV series or even movie. After all, Metzen himself approves of Cavill in the role!
      But, getting back down to earth, this seems much more Witcher-related, with Season 2 of the show  still being shot, as Covid slowed things down. The Instagram post is probably just a tease that they're still shooting the show (possibly the finale, as the script seems to be relevant) and we're just getting too excited. But why shouldn't we get excited? A Warcaft TV show is just too good of a fit, even an animated one, so any movement we can stir up there can only be positive!

      We're sure you're all Cavilled-out at this point, but there's another development in the fan/Chris Metzen/Christie Golden casting of Superman as Arthas, as the man (of steel) himself has replied to a recent photoshop of him as the Lich King over on Instagram. We start off with two cute/amazing fan interactions, as someone in the thread asked him what his WoW name was and the reply was pure gold:
           
      The second was a fair warning related to Cavill's missing his Man of Steel casting call because he was playing WoW:
        
      And finally there's the big one, even thought it's small, as Cavill tagged Blizzard with a thinking emoji:

      And while usually with social media posts like this you'd assume they were made by some PR intern or similar, considering Cavill's love of WoW and the specificity of some of the replies, we can be pretty sure he was the one responding. Here's the full Instagram post:
      And just in case you missed it the first time, here's that story of Cavill missing the call that he got the Superman part:

      The Great Vault raid loot requirements have finally changed on the 9.0.5 PTR in this week's Build 37705.
      As we reported last week, Blizzard planned on changing the raid loot requirements for the weekly chest from 3/7/10 bosses down to 3/6/9 bosses, but Blizzard did not implement the change until this week's Build arrived on the 9.0.5 PTR.
      Here's the updated Great Vault tab with the new requirements.

      We've got some great news for you if you don't do Mythic Keystone Dungeons. In Patch 9.0.5, you can upgrade base Mythic Dungeon gear with Valor Points up to Item Level 200.
      In this week's (third) 9.0.5 PTR build, we noticed Mythic gear has 12 ranks in the Dungeon Journal, which means it is upgradable with Valor from Item Level 183 to 200.
