Best and Worst Mythic+ Dungeons to Complete on Spiteful, Grievous, Fortified Weeks
are this week's affixes!
Overall, this week should not be too terrible in the time department, however this week can absolutely be rough in the individual play department.

it can cost your healer a lot of mana making the pride not doable if your healer does not have enough mana going into the pride. Overall this week can be pretty difficult even though it isn't necessarily slow. Just make sure your healer can drink and maintain enough mana as that is something that a lot of people tend to overlook.

in the maze off of a first mob kill with trash still up can absolutely make grievous a very difficult to manage affix in Mists. The strengths of Mists are still apparent, as this dungeon's timer is very lenient and on the whole you should be able to complete this dungeon if taken slow with minimal wipes.

Halls of Atonement
Halls of Atonement can be fairly rough this week, but it should not be slow. There is a significant amount of tank damage that will be present on this week due to the nature of the dungeon in tandem with
. This means that the amount of throughput healing required for the tank / incidental damage on the group can be incredibly difficult to manage. As for
, this affix should be reasonably easy to manage on the whole. The dungeon really comes down to your healer / tank synergy, but if played correctly this dungeon should go quite quick.
The biggest difficulty that you will most likely face in Halls this week has to do with the trash damage on the party and notably the tank. Kiting will be really advantageous overall for your tank as that helps reduce the damage intake that the healer would otherwise have to heal through. The most difficult party wide mob though is probably the
. This ability has a 40 yard range meaning that you can actively outrange it every time to help minimize
when soaking the lines as this will be pretty rough.

Necrotic Wake's timer is very lenient now as long as you understand how and when to use the weapons in the dungeon. This means that as long as you play a safer strategy then you should be well off. For advice, I think that using the 3 Javelins on
is a really solid play. For
, it can be kind of dangerous on most of the bosses as they have some form of pulsing AOE damage on them. The most deadly of the 4 bosses with Grievous is probably

This week the pain points of Necrotic Wake seem to be the bosses. Make sure you have armaments of some kind for

If you are able to take the dungeon slow, use bombs appropriately, and not have any deaths then this dungeon should be really easy on the timer. The dungeon is just incredibly difficult on grievous and having deathless runs is already a bit of a challenge in here.
This dungeons difficulty comes with the 3 out of the 4 bosses of the instance.

) for them will definitely be of great benefit to you. Domina needs to have her webs broken immediately otherwise you stack up a lot of stacks of the DOT. Margrave you should have cooldowns allocated appropriately to this boss. Typically you can use things such as 1-2 minutes + prideful in P1,
in P2, and all CDs in P3.
Spires of Ascension
Spires of Ascension's timer is incredibly forgiving most weeks if you take the dungeon pretty slow as the timer is fairly lenient. I think that the dungeon is quite difficult on
in different spots depending on what is going on. There is definitely 1 boss and 1 trash pull that immediately come to mind when you think of the difficulty of this dungeon and it becomes incredibly polarizing due to that.
I think the biggest pain point in this dungeon is going to be the

is particularly brutal on
as they do a very hefty pulsing AOE ability that if your healer does not have appropriate cooldowns for it can cause wipes or drain their mana incredibly quickly.

Theater of Pain
Theater of Pain is definitely one of the more difficult dungeons to deal as a whole especially on
should not be too bad due to the lower mob density that is apparent here. Grievous is really difficult on almost all trash pulls however and making sure that your healer has the appropriate amount of mana going into trash pulls is really important.
The bosses, pride timings, and
are the biggest road blocks in Theater this week. Make sure you have a strategy and route that sets up prides to be spawned into bosses as frequently as possible. You can check out some basic routes for Theater
which will help a decent amount. Beyond that if you design a route that skips the conquest
patrol that will help you a substantial amount time wise / pride wise. As for the bosses themselves, I think
is probably the worst as his leap mechanic puts your whole party deep into grievous. This boss doesn't really have too many other mechanics to heal through, but this turns his stomp deadly for sure.
This dungeon especially on
is incredibly difficult. There are a lot of trash mobs in TOP that do ambient AOE damage, but none is more difficult than
. He is the worst dude of them all, and I would highly recommend skipping all the gasbags you can. Just be really careful and over-drink to ensure mana won't be an issue.
Theater of Pain Guide
Sanguine Depths this week is really bad because of
. The dungeon generally has low mob density which
does not really punish. The final trash gauntlet leading to
has a high chance of leaving you permanently in combat not allowing you to drink. This can be awful for some of the more mana intense healers. Be really aware of this and try to conserve mana as much as possible during this gauntlet.
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 in a dungeon they feel really difficult.

otherwise you can put yourself in deep trouble and deep into stacks of grievous. 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

De Other Side
De Other Side is fairly time restrictive as a whole due to the amount of time that the bosses take, but this should not be a super heavy issue this week as the affixes are not slow, just difficult.
can be really frustrating at times during the bosses and there are even trash mobs such as

I still think that the timer,

is a run killer and there is a reason every group gets pride prior to pulling him. If you wipe to him your run is over and you drop the key and go again. Make sure you save bloodlust and have
for him and you should be okay. Aside from that, you need to pull the Ardenweald area a bit aggressive to time the key.
is also incredibly difficult to manage.
whenever you have to split up into separate portals makes it to where your healer can no longer heal you. This means that you need to be topped up completely going into the shatter reality out of grievous. This is also a really good time to use a healing potion.
