What to Expect in Mythic Season 3?


Mythic Affix Changes in Season 3

  • Necrotic Icon Necrotic affix's Necrotic Wound Icon Necrotic Wound duration is now 5 seconds (was 6 seconds).
  • Blizzard made changes to the affix rotation to break up Necrotic Icon Necrotic and Sanguine Icon Sanguine, as this combination could overburden tanks.

Upgrading Mythic+ Gear with Valor in Shadowlands Season 3

Valor will reset to 0 with the beginning of Season 3, and you will once again be able to upgrade Mythic Dungeon Gear with Valor.

You will find more information about Valor in our separate guide linked below.


Mythic Dungeon Rewards in Shadowlands Season 3

Mythic+ end-of-run drops will cap at Mythic+10 (Item Level 255) throughout the week of March 1-7 until Mythic Difficulty Sepulcher of the First Ones opens.

During the week of March 1 you must complete a Mythic +15 run that week to claim Item Level 278 loot the following week on March 8.

The Great Vault will be uncapped starting March 8, reflecting successful completions achieved during the week of March 1.

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 — Encrypted

The new Mythic Affix that will be active in all +10 runs in Season 3 is called Encrypted Icon Encrypted — Enemies throughout the dungeon possess relics of the First Ones. Destroy the relics to summon the First Ones' Automa and gain powerful bonuses, based on the order in which they were destroyed.

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 progress. You can find out all about that on our dedicated page.


Dungeon Teleports

Completing Shadowlands dungeons at Mythic Level 20 or higher, within the time limit rewards dungeon teleports in Season 3.


Keystone Re-rolling and Depletion

Ta'hsup in the Hall of Holding in Oribos will now offer a Keystone to players who do not have one, as long as they have completed at least 1 Shadowlands dungeon on Mythic+ difficulty.

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.


Mythic+ Rating in Shadowlands

Patch 9.1 introduced a way for players to gauge their success and preparation to take on the challenges found in Mythic+ dungeons — a new Mythic Scoring System!

You can 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.

Mythic+ Rating

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 Mythic scoring system in our dedicated guide.


Mythic Season 3 Achievements and Rewards

Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season Three Icon Shadowlands Keystone Conqueror: Season Three requires you to attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 1,850 during Season 3 and rewards The Cryptic title.

To earn Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season Three Icon Shadowlands Keystone Master: Season Three, and receive Wastewarped Deathwalker Icon Wastewarped Deathwalker, you must attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 2,500 during Shadowlands Season 3. The mount is a recolor of the Season 1 mount.

You can learn more about this and other mounts in our collection guides for 9.2 below.

New in Season 3, you may also choose to strive for Shadowlands Keystone Hero: Season Three Icon Shadowlands Keystone Hero: Season Three which requires you to attain a Mythic+ Rating of at least 3,000. Your reward for doing so is the ability to purchase the Vessel of Profound Possibilities Icon Vessel of Profound Possibilities from your Covenant vendor, instantly bringing all of your Conduits to their highest possible item level of 278.
