World First Shadowlands Mythic+ 19 Soloed

Recommended Posts

EsUNB47XAAEk4wT.jpg
 

It's time for more crazy impressive Mythic+ soloing (not timed, of course), as Mulini returns to make a big jump up in terms of keystones, and it isn't even in Mists! of Tirna Scithe!

It isn't even Season 2 yet and we already have a +19(!!) soloed, and this 4 hour masterpiece is brought to you by Blood Death Knights. Mulini's last solo was "only" a +17 in MotS and took 6 and a half hours, but now we have the Halls of Atonement get humiliated! Luckily there's a sped up and condensed version of the run to enjoy, and it's damn impressive

Here are the details of the run, courtesy of Raider.IO, and you can also check out even more stats over at Warcraft Logs.

You can see the insane amounts of healing coming out of the Blood DK, with a huge spike at 1 hour 20 mark, which seems to have been just a really big trash pack.

And here's Mulini's commentary on the run:

Gear: 229.18
06,00% Crit, 20,03% Haste- 12,50% Vers, 63,49% Mastery
Legendary: Superstrain Superstrain, Gorefiend's Domination Gorefiend's Domination

Covenant: Venthyr
Trinkets: Blood-Spattered Scale Blood-Spattered Scale, Splintered Heart of Al'ar Splintered Heart of Al'ar
Soulbinds:

Shards: You can either play with no/low adds with Gorefiend's Domination and interrupt the summon with kick and grip alternating or spawn as many add as you can and have fun with Superstrain.

1st Boss: Pretty easy. Fun Fact: You can play wherever you like See: 1:07:00+ in Replay https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/...

Echelon: The Boss has multiple challenges. Adds every 40-50s: I had 2-3 waves off adds if I don't mess up the jump. Newly spawned adds have mana for 3 casts. For each wave of casts you have to be topped and deathstrike after. The 3 waves of casts with the melees combined are about 35k DTPS for 15s. Interrupting 1 add for RP and using VB for each new wave was my strategy. Stun every 30s: Pre-AMSing every other debuff apply was doable, so I had this rotation: 1. pre-AMS 2. Covenant+SireTrinket+pre-DS+DS after+ ibf/antistunpot/rt as backup/emergency Using swarming mist to reset RP-economy and have enough RP for the DS before and after.

Foul Bulwark vs Blood Tap This fight is extremly 'spiky' due to the shear amount of raw damage taken. While 1 main cause of wipes were the not-immuned stuns, one other was just 'random' deaths. Though the damage intake is extremly preditable especially with this many targets, you often die by surprise. This talent-choice was done while trying 20 Echelon, but I think it was fine for 19 also.

Legendaries: Superstrain was a obvious choice due to the target-count. I tried Gorefiend's Domination but using VB on CD but died on the cast-waves of the adds and delaying VB reduced the value too much. DS refund was just less RP then Superstrain. CRW was hard to play on this fight due to GCDs with DRW. Imagine being on 80% HP and 30 RP and dnd down and trying to recover your RP with DRW, but after DRW→HS you are dead before you can DS. On paper this leggo seems good due to near perfect ICD trigger on cdr but it didn't worked out atleast for me(pls take DRW off GCD).

Sometimes the stun would be every 58s/59s instead of 60s, which completely ruins the CD-rotation. Echelon did this on the kill but I was (barely) able to recover.
Fun Fact: You can LoS the jump or jump near the entrance on the small elevations and he won't jump but punish you with a new set on curses soon after.

3rd Boss: Easy. Sometimes he skipped a spawn of a ghost when I was behind. Don't know if bug or feature.

4th Boss: AMB would be better then WotN to immune every other debuff instead of every 3rd. Gear was too mastery-focused for the intermissions. I played a bad setup but was lucky sometimes.

Q&A:
Q: But why? A: Because fun it's to pump on Echelon.
Q: Are you recommending this setup/route for my weekly +14/15? A: Not at all.
Q: Is EH or raw HPS more of a Problem? A: EH on Trash/Echelon, raw HPS on ST.
Q: Are higher Keys possible to do solo? A: Tried Hoa on 20/21/22. Echelon 20 seems doable

Tried ToP 19 MS on 1st Boss was too big. NW, DoS, and Pf I don't see happening. In SD/SoA I didn't see a clear red flag though it doesn't seem easy enough.

You can also treat yourselves to the full, uncut 4 hour run!


Huge congratulations to Mulini and we hope to see more solos in Season 2, as Shadowlands is already getting up there in the very first season, as BfA ended with a +25 as the highest soloed keystone (shockingly also by Mulini)!

Based on the in-game mythic plus timer it seems like the spike was caused by the Echelon fight, not a trash pack.

      In Rextroy's latest challenge, he gathered 12 teams of 8 players. The DPS challenge revolves around defeating Nathanos in Old Undercity while wearing just while/green vendor gear from Stormwind City. Which class do you think claimed victory?
      In total, there were 12 teams (one per class) and each team had 8 players. Unlike previous challenges, this one isn't limited to a single specialization. A class/team is allowed to use tanks/healers if they have access to them. 
      The event comes with certain limitations. The contenders can only wear white/green vendor gear bought in Stormwind City, can't use Bloodlust/Heroism and consumables, and must stay in the Arena.
      Here's some background information from the organizer of the event:
      Background Information
      This challenge, unlike earlier ones, will be closer to a true raid challenge, because it isn't limited to a single spec. This means each class can bring tanks and healers... If they happen to have access to it.
      Even if you are a pure DPS class, the challenge is tuned around being fast to complete if you have the necessary DPS, since Nathanos only has 176k hp! It is a risk and reward for hybrids to change their spec from DPS into Healers.
      To make it more classic-like (and for it to even be a challenge) all contenders will only be allowed to wear white and green vendor gear from Stormwind city, which you can purchase from vendors. This means you can't buy anything from Auction House, PvP vendors, or any Tier set.
      The health of non-tanks in each team will be about 8-10k, and their DPS and armor will be considerably weaker.
      Nathanos melee hits for A LOT, about 4-6k. He also dual-wields. He casts a fear quite frequently, which makes nearby players run away. He also has a stun, which he uses to distance himself from the target
      If he is at the range, he will do less normal damage than in melee, but every now and then he will use "multi-shot" which is most of the time a one-shot to the target and people stacking nearby. It does about 8-10k damage
      Quite basic abilities, but deadly... He will also be accompanied by guards during the encounter, that will spawn in waves and do 2k melee hits as well as range damage!
      Like other raid bosses, he has a lot of quotes that he will spam during the encounter!
      He will also drop some insane gear... but I won't spoil what it is!
      The rules are the following:
      Only vendor white/green gear No combat ress / heroism No consumables Stay within the arena You are allowed to try and skip NPCs in the encounter area (tho it might punish you later if you get feared to them) but you are NOT allowed to clear the adds before starting the encounter with Nathanos.

      The fifth week of Patch 9.1.5 is coming to a close, and we've looked at the current Tier List for Mythic+.
      Disclaimer
      In this post, we're taking a look at the tier list for Mythic+ based on the data gathered by Benched.me. The site plots all runs available from the Blizzard API (excluding the Chinese region) on a single ridge plot, so the data is different from our Shadowlands Mythic+ Rankings maintained by Petko.
      How the Data is Calculated
      To rank all specializations, Benched.me uses something called Meta Ratio Score. The "ratio" is between the specialization's representation in the meta vs. its representation in the population. For example, a specialization makes up 3% of all players in the population, but 6% in the meta, which means that spec's ratio is 6% / 3% = 2.
      Furthermore, the site defines the "population" as all keys level 2 through 15 and the "meta" as keys 16 and above. Based on that, we break down specs into tiers based on their meta ratio as follows:
      S-Tier: Ratio of at least 1.5. A-Tier: Ratio between 1 and 1.5. B-Tier: Ratio between 0.5 and 1. C-Tier: Ratio below 0.5, but greater than 0. F-Tier: Ratio of 0 (the spec isn't present in the high-level bin at all). Class / Specialization Mythic+ Tier List (Patch 9.1.5 Week #5)
      S-Tier
      We've got two specializations in the S-Tier. Subtlety Rogue almost lost its S-Tier ranking this week.
      Affliction Warlock - 1.71 meta ratio Subtlety Rogue - 1.50 meta ratio A-Tier
      Fire Mage - 1.35 meta ratio Outlaw Rogue - 1.26 meta ratio Windwalker Monk - 1.25 meta ratio Guardian Druid - 1.22 meta ratio Restoration Shaman - 1.18 meta ratio Brewmaster Monk - 1.17 meta ratio Holy Paladin - 1.16 meta ratio Marksmanship Hunter - 1.14 meta ratio Balance Druid - 1.12 meta ratio Elemental Shaman - 1.09 meta ratio Arms Warrior - 1.09 meta ratio Frost Mage - 1.09 meta ratio Arcane Mage - 1.03 meta ratio Discipline Priest - 1.01 meta ratio B-Tier
      Shadow Priest - 0.99 meta ratio Vengeance Demon Hunter - 0.98 meta ratio Unholy Death Knight - 0.95 meta ratio Havoc Demon Hunter - 0.94 meta ratio Blood Death Knight - 0.92 meta ratio Fury Warrior - 0.89 meta ratio Holy Priest - 0.89 meta ratio Survival Hunter - 0.87 meta ratio Protection Paladin - 0.85 meta ratio Beast Mastery Hunter - 0.81 meta ratio Protection Warrior - 0.78 meta ratio Restoration Druid - 0.78 meta ratio Assassination Rogue - 0.77 meta ratio Feral Druid - 0.72 meta ratio Mistweaver Monk - 0.71 meta ratio Enhancement Shaman - 0.68 meta ratio Frost Death Knight - 0.68 meta ratio Destruction Warlock - 0.67 meta ratio Demonology Warlock - 0.64 meta ratio Retribution Paladin - 0.55 meta ratio SEASON 2 PLOT

      We've already taken a look at many of the new mounts coming with the patch, so now it's time to gather them all up, including older mount re-colors and check them all out in motion! LeystTV bundled them all together a while ago (so the Gladiator mount is still the old non-red color and the cool Mimiron's Head-like one is missing), so let's take a look!

      We have another new feature of 9.2, as Blizzard are adding a different and potentially very interesting mode to Torghast. I may be one of the very few people that enjoy Torghast in general, so I'm very happy we're getting some actually different modes, and this boss rush one sounds pretty great, as the bosses are definitely the better side of the tower.
      MrGM goes into the mode and how it works (for now, as it may/will get changes further down the line), from the 8 floors with 8 layers each, to limited deaths per run, 200 Phantasma per floor, tons of Anima Powers, multiple bosses per floor sometimes, cooldowns refreshing each floor, and much more!

      I have to say I'm pretty hyped for this one, although I hope the tuning is on the harder end (or there's a hard mode), as the best Torghast runs I've had are ones where I just barely managed to down the boss after many tries and only 1 life left (pre 9.1).
