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.

      Season 4 has partially started on NA servers, as players are noticing elements of the new season popping up. This is actually planned and was announced by Blizzard, as you can see below, but players were not expecting this much to change before the reset. 
      Season 4 (Source)
      Dragonflight Season 3 will be ending April 22 at 10:00 p.m. PDT, the night before the regularly scheduled maintenance, with Dragonflight Season 4 beginning immediately following on April 23. The blue post indicated that the season should start soon after, on the 23rd, which presumably means after the weekly reset. Here are some of the things that have already changed.
      Players have been reporting various aspects of the season being in-game, starting with Season 3 items now being marked as legacy, with a grey tooltip, as spotted by Strosts:

      Crests and Flightstones have also been reset, with new ones dropping from World Quests.
      Catalyst charges are also now in Season 4 mode, as spotted by lemoncocoapuff.

      We have four new zones coming in the War Within, but just how large are they, all told? We have a few community members showing their relative sizes off, comparing to various other expansion landmasses, which we'll be taking a look at today.
      First of all, the new expansion has one above-ground zone and three below, as the Isle of Dorn is our gateway into the three underground zones. This is best showcased by Sturtime2, who broke the Dragonflight and War Within zones down (with Zaralek, Emerald Dream and Forbidden Reach all being post-expansion launch zones):

      Source. 
      Now that we have a better idea of the War Within zone structure, we have a more visually direct comparison by CygnetFR, who also added Kul Tiras in there for comparison:

      And finally we have another Dragon Isles comparison, only this time with the Easern Kingdoms thrown in, courtesy of keyboardturn:

      Blizzard have offered some feedback on player comments on the Priest Hero talents on the War Within Alpha, as our own guide writer, Publik, pointed out some issues with Voidreaver.
      Priest Feedback (Source)
      Hello!
      Thanks for this well-written post on the state of Voidweaver for Shadow.
        First, to clarify the functionality of the rift: There are not current plans for there to be a pull-in effect. We’re closely watching the power level of utility coming from hero talent trees. Given the frequency of the rift, a pull-in would surpass the power level aiming for.
        We appreciate the feedback that the slow effect from the slow effect from No Escape may not be utilized as often as we’re hoping especially compared to Dark Energy. As far as gameplay goes, the Entropic Rift window feeling tough to manage is something we aim to improve on during our next pass of the tree. Beyond that, there’s a lot of great bugs and feedback points here that we’ll bring back to the team and discuss.
       
      Some updates on the other Priest Hero Talent trees:
      We’ve updated Oracle’s design to be focused on healing instead of support mechanics and are looking for feedback about how it plays. There are a couple of talents that are not currently ready, and we’ll update those in the coming weeks, including a revision to the capstone. We’re also very excited about the visual effects for this tree and hope you are, too!
      The design for Archon is currently a work in progress. The core of the design revolves around Halo, and we’ll unveil its talents soon.

      Here we are with the final week of Season 3! While Patch 10.2.6 will continue on until May 7th, the new season will change everything, as we moving on from Amirdrassil to Awakened raids! The final week has brought a lot of change all over the place, including the very top, so let's see where everyone ended up.
      Note: We are using Normalized scores instead of raw DPS for the Warcraft Logs rankings. The u.gg rankings at the bottom are raw DPS. Normalized scores take into account the outlier boss fights where certain specs could stack massive DPS (due to the nature of the fight, whether it's AoE spam or something else), which would then affect their overall score for the whole raid.
      Mythic
      Overall Damage 95th Percentile
      We have some big shifts at the top here at the end of Season 3, as Subtlety reclaims its throne once more! Frost DK proves its unstable nature and drops a huge 6 spots down into 7th, but Unholy represents the DK class a lot better and stays strong in 2nd. Outlaw joins the Rogue resurgence and moves 5 spots up into 3rd, as Retribution slots in to 4th after Elemental's big 5 spot fall. Arcane joins the big risers as it makes its way from 11th all the way up into 5th, followed by the only other stable  spec in the top 10, Fury. Arms moves two up into 8th, with Havoc closing out the patch strong, at the end of the top 10 after a giant 8-spot resurgence. The rest of the Mages huddle right outside, followed by Enhancement. The bottom 3 remains the same, as we see Feral and Beast Mastery finish at the end of the list at the end of the patch, with Augmentation still waiting for some proper calculations to find itself near the top where it belongs.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      We have a different No.1 at the end of the season in the generalist bracket, and it's a relatively unexpected one! Retribution uses all those gathered Fyr'alaths to grab the very top spot from Subtlety at the end of the line, as the rest of the top 5 is filled with axe-wielders as well! Fire moves 2 up in 6th, as Outlaw makes a big move in 7th, 7 up! Havoc and Arcane close out the top 10, both rising, as we see Devastation fall down into the bottom 3, joining Beast Mastery and Augmentation.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
      Subtlety manages to take over in the direct damage charts as well, taking Unholy down a peg, with Retribution remaining stable in 3rd. Survival drops a few spots, down to the bottom of the top 10, as both Druids huddle up and grab 6th and 7th.
      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Heroic
      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      Heroic remains very stable at the end of the season, with only Havoc and Demonology switching places in 5th, and Feral, Survival and Shadow moving into the top 10.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.

      U.GG Raw Mythic DPS Rankings
      U.gg's rankings are based on actual DPS taken from Warcraft Logs data, focusing on the top players and span the past two weeks. This chart is for Mythic only.
      Affliction retains its No.1 spot in the raw DPS rankings, as the rest of the top 3 remains stable as well. We see Subtlety actually drop down here, the opposite of the points-based charts, with Demonology and Arms moving past it. Frost and Unholy DKs move up together, gaining 3 and 2 spots, respectively. Fire closes out the top 10 1 spot down, and we see the two Druids remain in the bottom 3 at the end of the season.
