Mythic Season 2 Dungeon Changes
Blizzard has adjusted multiple dungeons and bosses in Season 2. Check out our Dungeon Changes page for more details.
Upgrading Mythic+ Gear with Valor
Valor will reset to 0 with the beginning of Season 2, and you will once again be able to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear with Valor.
Mythic Dungeon Rewards
During the first week of Mythic Keystone dungeons, there is a cap of end-of-run loot. That loot will stop increasing at Mythic Keystone +10 for this week, which is Item Level 229. Great Vault will be uncapped the following week, and loot from the Great Vault (on July 13) will reflect successful completions achieved during the week of July 6.
The End-of-Run rewards are capped below Heroic difficulty Sanctum of Domination loot at Item Level 226. The weekly chest loot is capped at Item Level 252 and you must complete a Mythic +15 run to claim Item Level 252 loot the following week. In Season 1, a Mythic +14 run was enough.
|Difficulty Level||End-of-Run Item Level||Weekly Reward Item Level|
The Great Vault
The Shadowlands Weekly Chest requires you to clear a certain number of Mythic dungeons per week to receive items in the Dungeons category. You can find more details about the Great Vault and the requirements in our separate guide.
You can check out our Mythic+ dungeon difficulty rankings, as well as the recommended MDT routes for this week in the guides linked below.
New Seasonal Affix — Tormented
The new Mythic Affix that will be active in all +10 runs in Season 2 is called Tormented — Servants of the Jailer can be found throughout the dungeon and grant powerful boons when defeated. If a servant is not dealt with, they empower the final boss.
For a detailed guide on Mythic+ Affixes and what they do, please refer to our Mythic+ Affix Guide.
Covenant Bonuses in Mythic Dungeons
Depending on the Mythic dungeon, each Covenant in Shadowlands can provide specific buffs and bonuses to the party, and making use of these is essential for progressing. You can find out all about that on our dedicated page.
Completing Shadowlands dungeons at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit, rewards dungeon teleports in Season 2.
- Keystone Hero: The Necrotic Wake — Rewards Teleport to The Necrotic Wake.
- Keystone Hero: Plaguefall — Rewards Teleport to Plaguefall.
- Keystone Hero: Mists of Tirna Scithe — Rewards Teleport to Mists of Tirna Scithe.
- Keystone Hero: Halls of Atonement — Rewards Teleport to Halls of Atonement.
- Keystone Hero: Spires of Ascension — Rewards Teleport to Spires of Ascension.
- Keystone Hero: Theater of Pain — Rewards Teleport to Theater of Pain.
- Keystone Hero: De Other Side — Rewards Teleport to De Other Side.
- Keystone Hero: Sanguine Depths — Rewards Teleport to Sanguine Depths.
Keystone Re-rolling and Depletion
Ta'hsup will also spawn at the end of Mythic+ dungeons that are completed before the time limit is reached. He will offer a one-time Keystone exchange to any player whose current Keystone is at or below the level of the dungeon that was recently completed on time. Keystones that are higher level than the dungeon that was recently completed on time cannot be traded, including the Keystone that was used to start the run.
Additionally, Ta'hsup in Oribos will also deplete your Keystone as many times as you would like, so you no longer need to continuously leave and reset instances to deplete your Keystone.
Patch 9.1 introduces a way for players to clearly gauge their success and preparation to take on the challenges found in Mythic+ dungeons — a new Mythic Scoring System!
You can now view your personal Mythic+ rating within the Group Finder (I) UI under the Mythic Dungeons tab. Hovering your mouse over the center Dungeon rating will bring up a tooltip that explains more about your rating and how to improve it.
Your rating increases each time you run a dungeon you have not completed before or when you beat your own best time in a dungeon you have already completed. Completing a key provides a rating based on three factors — the level of the key, the Affixes in the key, and the run's time compared to the dungeon's timer. With each Season, Mythic+ ratings are reset in the display.
You can find more information about the new Mythic scoring system in our dedicated guide.
