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.

      The Revendreth short was quite a dark sight to behold, both in narrative and visual tone, but there were still plenty of striking images to be had, and our old wallpaperist NostraDavid has captured a whole lot of them in 4K! We have 31 images to take a look at (including Garrosh, both screaming and non-screaming) and pick our favorites from this time around, so let's take a look at some of our picks or you can head straight to the imgur gallery for all of them. And don't forget, there's also the Bastion, Maldraxxus and Ardenweald wallpapers to choose from as well!

      We recently covered the potential/actual exploit of getting from level 50 to 60 in under 10 minutes on the beta, and Blizzard was quick to address it with today's build, by simply reinstating the equivalent level limit for the item that it had before the squish. However, there is a very simple workaround for the fix, featuring Party Sync. The original method still applies, and you'll have to get a whole lot of Legion mission table XP items using not quite legit means (you can check out the whole process here), but the workaround for the fix is simplicity itself, as Shiekrunner demonstrates in 30 seconds:
      This will almost certainly also be fixed soon, but we're just pointing it out in case it does slip by unnoticed, although even if it did it seems awfully brave for anyone to attempt this, as it's very likely it would result in some level of suspension.

      Torghast is going away for a while, as Blizzard have announced they're working on some issues with it, and it will not be available for a few days. This is in reference to the actual Torghast Tower of the Damned in-game, and not the somewhat confusingly named Torghast max level beta server, which is still up and running.
      Torghast (source)
      So that we can address some issues with Torghast, Tower of the Damned, access to this feature has been disabled for a few days in the Shadowlands Beta.
      Torghast the test realm is available.
      We’ll post further updates when we’re ready to resume testing in the tower.
      Thank you!

      It's that time of the new animated short release day, as the memes have accumulated since Afterlives: Revendreth released. Today is a particularly fruitful day, as we have not only a new short for image sources, but also the return of Garrosh, who's a pretty good meme topic on his own. So, let's get into it, as r/wow is brimming with potential.
      We start off on the shores of Battle for Azeroth, as FiliusLuporum had a terrifying thought about Sire Denathrius. "I had a nightmare today":

      Source.
      Then we move on to a reality-based one, and this one we can all feel is true as etoro-lvl60-mage says what we're all thinking:

      Source.
      This particular format was used a lot and we'll probably be seeing more of it, as this next one starts us off on the Activision Blizzard side of today's memes, with Thirteenera using the format for some long-lasting issues:

      Source.
      And then it's time to reveal the true nature of Sire Denathrius, as lobbl noticed some possible similarities between the two:

      Source.
      But now it's on to what you're really here for, what everyone has been waiting for in the animated short, it's Garrosh memes! This first one isn't technically about Garrosh specifically, but he's featured in it, with matticus7 throwing in some solid irony:

      Source.
      And now it's on to Garrosh proper, as the former Warchief had a pretty one-note appearance, which cammackattack decided to merge with the Meet the Parents meme:

      Source.
      Then we're on to the definitely best line of the entire animated short, which Nyarlathotep21 incorporated into another, similar franchise:

      Source.
      We're still sticking with Garrosh, but this time papanak94 went for the meta look at actual players' relationship with his character:

      Source.
      The penultimate one we're taking a look at comes from a different genre of memes - that's right, Gublash made a Covenant swap meme crossover:

      Source.
      And to finish things off we're going off-road with one that has nothing to do with the Revendreth short, but SaltyLocation9556 definitely encapsulated literally every player's thoughts after the Bastion short:
