Mythic Season 3 Affix - Beguiling: Everything You Need to Know

Recommended Posts

40224-mythic-azerite-armor-improvements-

Beguiling is the new Seasonal affix coming in Mythic Season 3 and in this article, we're taking a closer look at how it works.

Affix Description
Beguiling

Azshara's Emissaries are present throughout the dungeon.

Handmaidens

  • As the description indicates, there will be three types of handmaidens present in a variety of pulls in different configurations from week to week, according to Ion Hazzikostas.
  • It is important to note that the handmaidens themselves are affected by affixes, remain stationary, and won't chase you.
    • Even though the handmaidens are affected by Bolstering, they won't affect other mobs with Bolster Bolster, because they leave the dungeon instead of dying.
  • They do not count toward the "Enemy Forces Killed" bar.

1. Emissary of the Tides

This emissary should be handled just like Infested, because she gives all adjacent allies immunity to crowd control effects. She must be CCed and killed last. She will teleport out of the dungeon (Teleport: The Eternal Palace Teleport: The Eternal Palace) when she reaches 1 health.

2. Enchanted Emissary

This emissary is surrounded by a shield which makes her allies reflect 200% of damage dealt back to you, she can be stunned and attacks will knock her back (Enchanted Enchanted) with abilities. Enchanted Emissary will teleport out of the dungeon (Teleport: The Eternal Palace Teleport: The Eternal Palace) when you deplete all her energy.

3. Void-Touched Emissary

The most powerful handmaiden comes with true sight, so you can't skip her with abilities like Rogue's Shroud of Concealment Shroud of Concealment. She deals nasty Shadow damage every 8 seconds to all enemies in line of sight, which increases with each tick by 50%, so the tank must LoS her, otherwise, she's going to one-shot the group after a few stacks of (Queen's Decree: Hide Queen's Decree: Hide). She will teleport out of the dungeon at 1 health. 

Don't forget to submit your feedback if you've tested the new affix on 8.2 PTR.

Well I guess it's back to the slog. At least Reaping was an actually fun affix.

This affixe is fine too. the true problem with infested was that if you *filtered* up you made the dungeon harder on top of losing more time. Mobs would go back to full HP and you might have 2 or 3 infested in that pack now instead of 1. Any progress you do on the emissaries will remain except for only 1 of them i think.

The point I make is that these mobs are going to slow down the the runs considerably and allow for less frantic play compared to Reaping which once you got use to it was very fun, multi-packs, reaps and even bosses all together.

Reaping is indeed a fun affix, issue is that its abit to easy. When you can you just kill the last boss and then proc the last Reaping, skipping it in the process, or you pull the boss with reaping depending on your classes, maybe a Unholy DK for example. And dungeons such as Tol Dagor you can proc 2-3 reapings on the cannons almost skipping them with just the sheer amount of dmg the cannons do.

Will be fun to see how the Handmaidens turn out, its something different which makes M+ more interesting.

      If you're making use of the XP buff leveling new characters and you're tired of the Warlords of Draenor intro questline, which involves Khadgar, there's a workaround at level 90 to skip it and here's how.
      Note that the Warlords of Draenor intro rewards a fair amount of XP these days, and you are sacrificing it to save time with the skip.
      At level 90, you must head to Khadgar and complete the intro prologue to Draenor. While the intro gives you a fair amount of Experience with the double XP buff, chances are you could have grown tired of completing it over and over on multiple characters.
      We recommend using the skip ideally if you have:
      Unlocked Draenor Pathfinder (flying in Draenor), because you will end up in Gorgrond and it will take you some time to head back to your Garrison to start questing; Inflatable Mount Shoes on a mount for water walking in case you have no flying unlocked, which makes it less painful reaching locations and unlocking your Garrison. At level 90, take the portal from Stormwind/Orgrimmar to Jade Forest and head to the Timeless Isle in Pandaria (see map below for exact location). There, you will find an underwater cave with chairs. Sit on them and click the campfire to teleport to Gorgrond.

      From there, you can head to Iron Docks if you have a flying mount, and the flight master will take you to your Garrison even though they (the flight masters) aren't marked on the map.

      We have some more art-related content, but this time around it's not just fans painting their favorite characters, but actually transforming WoW into a painting - and without using any mod! Now, there's plenty of mods already out there that you can use to change the game's aesthetics, but with Blizzard's recent tightening of EULA enforcement, it could possibly be risky using some of them (although they've been mostly safe to use so far).
      This one requires an Nvdia card and is much, much easier than putting a mod in, you just need the Geforce app and to click a few things, and your game could be looking like this (just click on the image and the video will play):
      As noted by the poster, kathrad_, this also messes with the UI, so you're either going to have to just use it to marvel at the visuals around the world, or be really good with your spec rotation, as you won't really be seeing much of the UI. Also, perhaps don't go raiding or doing high M+ keys, as ground effects and similar probably won't be as noticeable.
      Interestingly, there are plenty of people in the reddit thread that actually didn't note the difference in the look of the game, saying that the above just looks like regular Darnassus! I guess it's been on fire for so long people have a very painterly memory of the once Night Elf capital.
      If you have some great mods that alter the game's look, share em below and let's see just how much WoW can be changed.

      While it's no surprise many game developers and producers spent time playing WoW, hearing that Valve co-founder and internet santa Gabe Newell actually spent time intensively farming gold in it is slightly more surprising. While talking to Edge magazine (issue 344) he mentioned how, while doing research on games as productivity platforms, he decided to farm gold in World of Warcraft to see if it was worth it.
      And he turned out to be pretty good at it, as his efforts started netting him around $20 per hour, which in turn proved to him that the concept was sound and that realization lead to the addition of the Steam Workshop, where Steam users could create their own content for the games they were playing, starting with the now legendary Team Fortress 2 hats, and peaking with the insane prices for certain CS: GO skins.

      This particular skin went for over $60,000, with a signature
      of a pro player, and it's "only" worth $20,000 without it.
      And so, without the monotony of gold farming, we may not have gotten the Steam Workshop, so the next time you're feeling annoyed at having to grind that 5 mil for the Brutosaur, just think of all the things we wouldn't have had if items in WoW were cheaper!
