Mythic+ Rogue Shroud of Concealment Trash Skips
This page details the most useful paths to take for groups that have a Rogue and want to use their Shroud to skip mobs in any of the Shadowlands dungeons in Mythic+ Season 1.
Shroud Skips in Shadowlands Mythic+
The skips shown below are useful, but not required, to complete the keystone in time. You should consider them if you want to experiment or save time!
Halls of Atonement
This skip will save you time as you do not need to kill extra trash mobs in order to make your way to Echelon. Furthermore, you can decide to play the 80% (4th Prideful) Prideful buff with Halkias The Sin-Stained Goliath, which makes it more efficient.
Mists of Tirna Scithe
This skip can be done by either by Shroud of Concealment or out of combat Crowd Control, such as Sap and Imprison. The skip leads directly to the "secret door", which can only be opened by Night Fae, and it allows you to pick up 10-minute buffs for the whole party.
In addition, it allows you to have just enough count to spawn Prideful prior engaging IngraMaloch, which will speed up the dungeon.
The first skip allows you to pass through the Slime Tentacles leading towards Doctor Ickus without killing them one by one, which is very time inefficient.
Another skip via Shroud of Concealment is passing through the Slime Tentacles which lead straight to the pack of mobs prior to engaging Domina Venomblade.
This skip allows you to bypass the first room leading to Kryxis the Voracious without getting extra mob count, which then allows you to have a perfectly-timed Prideful buff on the pack prior to engaging the boss. This strategy is extremely useful on both Fortified and Tyrannical, as this boss is one of the harder ones in this dungeon.
Just as an extra note, you do not necessarily need a Rogue to skip it; you can just wait for the patrolling Insatiable Brute to pass, but sometimes his position can be awkward and you can end up waiting for more than 20-30 seconds or, in the worst-case scenario, risk ninja-pulling, which can result in a wipe.
Spires of Ascension
This skip allows you to bypass the most dangerous pack of mobs in the area leading to Oryphrion. Having a Rogue here is extremely valuable, as it saves time and provides safety with the skip.
The Necrotic Wake
The skip leading towards Amarth can be only done via Rogue's Shroud, which makes the class a very valuable addition to the team in this dungeon. It allows you to bypass one of the most dangerous trash mobs in the dungeon, which can save time and provide safety at the same time.
Theater of Pain
It does also provide you with the opportunity to proc the Prideful buff for the final boss, Mordretha the Endless Empress, via pulling a singular mob, which in most cases is the Raging Bloodhorn. He is not attached to the first pack of the dungeon - G1.
The second skip will allow you to skip unnecessary mob count via using Shroud to bypass Rancid Gasbag. Note that you do NOT need a shroud to pass it by, but the chances of you doing it in a un-coordinated group are slim to none, so make sure to only do it with a Rogue or using any movement speed ability when he stays still for a second.
