Best and Worst Mythic+ Dungeons to Complete on Sanguine, Grievous, Fortified Weeks
Welcome to this week's affixes!
are the affixes you have to deal with coming into this week.
This week is probably the third best week on the calendar in regards to pushing the highest level of keys! What makes this week overwhelmingly positive for pushing is due to it first being a
week and the 2 corresponding affixes also having minimal time losses if played correctly.
can be tough to manage in spots regarding time losses, but there is always outplay potential for sanguine management.
can be really tough for healer mana and make some bosses more difficult than normal, but in regards to time Grievous has a theoretical 0 time loss.
With these affixes here are some generalized tips for those who are new to a week like this. First I would say to make sure your tank is always kiting / moving mobs whenever mobs get low. There aren't a ton of mismatched mob HP totals this expansion compared to last, but it is still relevant. You can try to kill mobs evenly, but this isn't the best strategy in all situations. So, just be prepared to kite or use displacement effects on mobs. As for
just making sure that you give your healer ample time to drink to regain mana between pulls is very important. There are few super mana taxing points in most dungeons, but making sure between pulls and prior to spawning
your healer needs to be topped on mana.

Halls of Atonement
Halls of Atonement is one of the best fortified dungeons in the game right now, and with the affixes present that should not change. There are a few points in which
management can be a bit tricky, but making sure that you manage health pools and have displacement abilities for the caster style mobs, you should be in good shape as a whole. Halls has what I would describe as unlimited pull size potential where almost all the pulls are reliant on your tanks potential kiting. This dungeon is very frustrating on sanguine from time to time if your management is poor and that can cause the timer to be tight, but that frankly is a player skill issue.
makes the healer have to spam heal your tank a bit more than normal and that can cause some mana issues.
The biggest pain point in this dungeon is probably the

Mists of Tirna Scithe
are not freebies in Mists this week, but fortunately enough these affixes shouldn't impact the dungeon too much compared to something like
. Mists of Tirna Scithe has an incredibly forgiving timer which is why it normally is higher up. That coupled with the general dungeon difficulty being fairly low helps a lot. Just make sure you have enough damage for the first boss and it should be smooth sailing. The sanguine management in this dungeon should be substantially easier than something like Halls of Atonement.
Mists only really has one difficult section in the dungeon and it comes right smack at the beginning of the dungeon. There is a pack with a
, and a
. Making sure you focus down the villager is paramount as if the heavy casting villager gets caught in
then you will spend a long amount of time on this pack. He also despawns at 20% HP, so he does not leave a sanguine puddle behind himself. There are also 2 packs of
at the beginning as well. Pulling these is fine, but do not pull them into the first pack as you would on a different week as sanguine healing can be rough here. Something to note as well is after
there are many

Aside from that just be careful about the bursting AOE damage during the intermission on

Necrotic Wake post changes is hands down one of the most easy dungeons assuming you have people who know where to use the weapons. Typical use of the

pulls, or just bosses.

. This is actually incredibly scary for your healer and I suspect runs to be lost to both of these bosses. Everywhere else should be pretty lenient in the grievous department as long as you're getting your kicks. If it was not grievous, this dungeon would probably be an S tier dungeon.
This week the pain points of Necrotic Wake seem to be the bosses, which is very advantageous for a
week. Make sure you have armaments of some kind for

you have 100% crit for 30 seconds and this works on the Necrotic Wake armaments as well, so using an armament with this crit buff is very cool.

Plaguefall's lenient timer with use of
s in this dungeon make it very forgiving to deaths and pulling slow. this dungeon can be quite easy, but careful management of Plagueborers is what makes the dungeon truly free and normal groups just do not have the coordination to put this dungeon into S-Tier.
is largely inconsequential in Plaguefall as mobs are by-in-large easy enough to move. Having a displacement is always nice though.
can get a bit rough on the bosses though. Notably
as they have diseases that will tick your party into grievous.
I think the last phase of
and not having enough damage for
are probably the 2 biggest points of contention in this dungeon. The last phase of Margrave with the tentacles while the
is going off is very spicy for healers when paired with
. Making sure you have cooldowns appropriately placed for pushing the boss to 66% and 33% is really important. A general rule of thumb I have is use one to two short coolodwns in the first phase with
buff, use major cooldowns like 3 minutes with the remainder of the
in phase 2. Then
phase 3. For Globgrog, you just need to beat the second set of adds spawning. Make sure you have

Spires of Ascension
Spires of Ascension's timer is incredibly forgiving most weeks if you take the dungeon pretty slow, however the massive kick requirement is very difficult generally and on
there are a lot of mobs to get stuck casting in sanguine. There also is a lot of ambient damage on many of the trash pulls / bosses to put your group deep into
, so drinking is an absolute must in this dungeon. The timer's leniency offsets this, but this dungeon is not free by any means.
I think the biggest pain points in this dungeon is the trash in front of Devos and the starting area trash. The angels in front of Devos do an unreal amount of damage. Once you end up pushing a high enough key, I would highly recommend using
and the Kyrian Covenant Spear from Spires itself on the final angel
+ this angel is just bad news, so be super careful and liberal with drinking to full mana wise here. The trash in the beginning of the dungeon is really rough with

One final thing is the second boss,
is very much a "kill it before it kills you" kind of boss. Having

is very useful as if you get hit with too many of his
bleeds then you will be stuck in some bad grievous. This boss is a healer nightmare if it goes too long.

De Other Side
De Other Side has a relatively tight timer, but on this week you should be able to pull the Ardenweald with unlimited size restrictions other than hitting the
spawn percentages. There is also new meta for doing this dungeon with playing almost all the Ardenweald area except the
. This includes even pulling the

De Other Side is normally tight on the time department with any affixes that adversely affect the dungeon, but with no time-sensitive affixes then this dungeon should be really fast assuming you can live the bosses.

The bosses in Sanguine Depths will almost always be the gatekeepers in this instance regardless of whether it is Fortified or Tyrannical. The timer in here is pretty lenient as long as you can live the bosses.
is absolutely nightmare material though for healers as making sure you have enough mana is an incredibly daunting task overall.
as the name jokes about is also really annoying in Sanguine Depths because of the tight corridors. Overall though, making sure you have enough mana and survive the bosses and you should time the key.
I think the biggest problem parts in this dungeon like I eluded to in the other section are the bosses.
are some of the hardest bosses individually and when they are slammed together with

On Kryxis you need to make sure to slowly soak the orbs from
otherwise you can put yourself in deep trouble, but make sure to soak them quick enough to where you do not outrun your healer cooldown coverage. You can also range the
ability and it will not drop any of the orbs. This is something you can do, but I would use this liberally and only if you think your healer or tank need assistance.
On Executor Tarvold, focusing down the adds is by far the highest priority. When there are bad overlaps with
+ add pulsing AOE damage is very scary and heavy defensives / Immunities should be used here.

as this thing is just a mana sink. This whole encounter and pride timings and everything requires careful consideration for healer mana otherwise you will be in bad shape.
Helpful tip: You can
every cast of the Castigation on a hunter. For General Kaal, healer mana is the scariest part. There is potential to have your healer suicide, drink, then resuming pulling, but that is so costly time wise. You can pull general Kaal far back where the bears will not combat you as well, so that is an option.

Theater of Pain
Theater of Pain is definitely one of the more difficult dungeons to deal with on
. There are many tight knit corridors and dropping sanguine is an absolute pain in this dungeon. That coupled with the general difficulty of
and just the dungeon as a whole makes this dungeon really troublesome. There are many bleeds / dots in this dungeon, so a lot of spot healing will normally be required taxing healer mana as well. Frequent drinks are important!
The biggest pain points of this dungeon are the
wings. There are a lot of points in which
healing can occur and you can get deep into
. In the gorechop wing try to pull as few
as possible. They do passive AOE damage that is pretty difficult to heal through. In the Xav wing whenever you get targeted by
make sure you pop a defensive as this can get you deep into grievous as well. Just be super aware and let your healer drink a lot.
