Last updated on Oct 12, 2021 at 00:08 by Petko 22 comments

On this page, you will find full MDT routes for all Mythic+ Shadowlands dungeons, complete with our comments for how to best handle each dungeon.

This page is updated on a weekly basis to account for all the Mythic+ affixes present in that given week.

1.

Week 15 of Season 2: Tyrannical, Spiteful, Necrotic, and Tormented

This page will provide you with optimal MDT routes for each of the 8 Shadowlands dungeons. It is updated for the current week's Mythic affixes (Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical, Skittish Icon Spiteful, and Necrotic Icon Necrotic, in addition to the newly-introduced Tormented Icon Tormented for Mythic+ 10 and higher keys).

The dungeons on this page are listed alphabetically. For a difficulty ranking of this week's Mythic dungeons, we recommend our dedicated guide, linked below.

Making use of your Covenant's dungeon-specific buffs is crucial for having a smooth and efficient run. While by no means necessary to time your key, these buffs are extremely helpful. You can find out all about that on our dedicated page.

De Other Side

2.1.

Path

2.2.

Tips

Once you enter the Ardenweald area, be ready to help your tank reset Necrotic Wound Icon Necrotic Wound from Necrotic Icon Necrotic quickly before it becomes lethal. Avoid pulling any Tormented Icon Tormented mobs with any other non-boss enemies unless you are absolutely confident you can handle it.

Save Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust (or a similar effect) for the boss encounters since Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical is really tough in this dungeon. Skittish Icon Spiteful will be easy to handle; just make sure you have enough space to avoid being hit by the Spiteful Shades. Be extra careful in the Zul'Gurub and Mechagon areas due to limited space, as the Shades will be big trouble!

2.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

3.

Halls of Atonement

3.1.

Path

3.2.

Tips

Remember to avoid creating massive pulls due to Necrotic Icon Necrotic, especially when including long-lasting mobs such as Shard of Halkias. Echelon will be a rather troublesome boss since the Undying Stonefiends will also apply Necrotic Wound Icon Necrotic Wound stacks; always focus on saving resources once the adds are about to spawn!

Skittish Icon Spiteful is easy to handle, as the open layout of the dungeon will allow you to sidestep and avoid them easily. Keep in mind that pairing mobs with different health (like Toiling Groundskeeper with Shard of Halkias), will spawn early Shades, use your group-utilities to avoid being hit by them!

Both Executioner Varruth and Soggodon the Breaker from the Tormented Icon Tormented Affix are in dangerous positions. Be careful to not pull them with any pack or you risk significantly increasing the difficulty of handling the Tormented affix.

3.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

4.

Mists of Tirna Scithe

4.1.

Path

4.2.

Tips

Both Skittish Icon Spiteful and Necrotic Icon Necrotic are relatively easy to handle; just remember to pay extra attention in the last part of the dungeon (after defeating Mistcaller) since that is where the massive pulls can cause wipes.

Remember to focus on the Spiteful Shades as soon as you finish off the pack of mobs inside the "maze" leading toward Mistcaller. One cool trick you can use is that if you have classes that can reset combat (like a Rogue with Vanish Icon Vanish or a Hunter with Feign Death Icon Feign Death) you can use that to trigger the correct exit of the maze and continue without killing the remaining Shades. It is quite a unique way to shave a few seconds off the dungeon timer!

If you are feeling confident you can skip Oros Coldheart and instead keep the 50% slow aura on the last boss of the dungeon, Tred'ova, which is quite easy to play around and saves time!

4.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

5.

Plaguefall

5.1.

Path

5.2.

Tips

Pull the first Tormented Icon Tormented mob prior to engaging anything else. This way you can spend all of your offensive and defensive cooldowns and recover them by the time you get to fight Globgrog.

If you are planning to utilize Rigged Plagueborer explosions remember that each bomb is capped to 5 targets, which includes Skittish Icon Spiteful — they do take "count" as an active living creature which can severely harm your strategy!

Margrave Stradama is really tough on Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical, especially when combined with Necrotic Icon Necrotic. Make sure to avoid the adds during the boss' intermission and reset your stacks effectively.

5.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

6.

Sanguine Depths

6.1.

Path

6.2.

Tips

Pay attention to your Necrotic Wound Icon Necrotic Wound stacks from Necrotic Icon Necrotic. It is really hard to reset them due to the lack of space in this dungeon. Be careful when engaging packs and save your group utility to help you cleanse them.

Do NOT pull Incinerator Arkolath with any other mobs since he is the hardest Tormented Icon Tormented mob out of the 4. You have a high risk of wiping if you do so.

Use Skittish Icon Spiteful to increase the stacks and duration of Sinfall Boon Icon Sinfall Boon. Simply kill them under the Anima Cell to gain the stacks, which is quite useful!

6.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

7.

Spires of Ascension

7.1.

Path

7.2.

Tips

Using the Spear of Destiny Icon Spear of Destiny (if you have a Kyrian player) will allow you to create some big pulls without having to worry about Necrotic Icon Necrotic resets, which is quite a useful trick to pay attention to.

You can opt to skip Soggodon the Breaker and instead have the 50% increased Physical damage taken on the last boss of the dungeon, Devos, which is quite easy to handle.

Kill all Spiteful Shades as quick as possible, since they will prevent you from going from platform-to-platform, which will ultimately slow your run; finish them off quickly!

7.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

8.

The Necrotic Wake

8.1.

Path

8.2.

Tips

Necrotic Icon Necrotic will be quite tough here since the majority of the pulls consist of high volumes of mobs. Use your party utilities to help your tank reset their Necrotic Wound Icon Necrotic Wound stacks faster!

Kill all Tormented Icon Tormented mobs prior to engaging Nalthor the Rimebinder. This is one of the longest and toughest boss fights, especially on Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical.

8.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!

9.

Theater of Pain

9.1.

Path

9.2.

Tips

Tyrannical Icon Tyrannical is really tough in the Theater of Pain and makes some boss fights really intense. Make sure to plan your route accordingly and collect as many Anima Powers as possible from the Tormented Icon Tormented mobs.

Finish off Spiteful Shades quickly before they reach you, since the limited space of the dungeon will prevent you from running away from them. Remember to use personal defensive cooldowns when needed. Keep in mind once you reach the Altars of Agony you will be unable to transition from portal to portal if you have any Spiteful shades up, so finish them off quickly.

9.3.

Advanced, High-Key Route

If your focus is oriented around high keys, pushing for progression, and a willingness to go out of your way to optimize your path for maximum efficiency, we recommend using this route instead. This MDT route provides in-depth explanations in the form of notes, so import it and give it a try!
