Best and Worst Mythic+ Dungeons to Complete on Raging, Quaking, Tyrannical Weeks
Welcome to this week's affixes!
are this week's affixes!
This week is the week that is before the best push week on the calendar.
by itself is not bad affixes for a
week. There is a lot of responsibility on the tank and on crowd control effects to not let the Raging get out of control with a potential enrage dispel being close to mandatory for this affix set. The upsides of this week is that there are minimal to no time losses that can be occurred by having these affixes outside of
. I think that if you are doing keys in the 15 range this week is particularly enticing as bosses and trash can get melted quite quickly with appropriately geared DPS.
is an incredibly easy to deal with affix as making sure you stay spread from your melee and not stacking on top of one another is the only real issues that you may face. There are some instances where this is difficult, but that is generally on a case by case basis. This can make healing
a bit more challenging as well, but not nearly as difficult as the most recent week.

is very much a tank and healer struggle. There are a lot of mobs that get quite dangerous once enraged and managing the raging, kicks, and kiting is imperative once the mobs dip below 30% HP. Quaking is really not super relevant in Halls of Atonement as the dungeon typically allows for open areas and should not be super rough for quaking.
The biggest pain points in this dungeon are the trash mobs more often than not. On
the bosses can get long, but they don't get substantially more difficult even though they have more HP. Lets talk about the trash mobs that are very dangerous and how to deal with them potentially on
- The obliterator casts

- The dogs in this instance already murder your tank with their
bleed. This coupled with raging can absolutely melt your tank. Kiting is definitely the preferred method to deal with the Gargons in here.

Mists of Tirna Scithe
Mists of Tirna Scithe is definitely one of the easier dungeons on the whole due to the lenient timer. In general on
weeks this dungeon can get more difficult due to most people being able to burn the bosses with

weeks. Aside from that dealing with

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 because you can ensure that the javelin is around for Nalthor. Especially as well on the
week making sure you have a lot of boss damage is important. Nalthor can actually become a 3+ minute encounter if you are not careful. That coupled with the pulsing AOE damage on tyrannical can be spooky.
Typical use of the

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

Spires of Ascension
DO NOT GO INTO THIS DUNGEON WITHOUT A
Spires of Ascension's timer is incredibly forgiving most weeks if you take the dungeon pretty slow. This timer is less lenient on
but still not super tight none-the-less. I think that the dungeon is quite difficult on
though if you are not in a coordinated group. If you are in a coordinated group, there shouldn't be too many problems though. There are a lot of kicks that need to happen and if you are not careful about the kick rotations during raging there are some abilities that will one shot people.
I think the biggest pain point in this dungeon is going to be the boss kill time, kick rotations late into trash packs, and the angel mini bosses. With it being
becomes even harder. The longer the fight goes on for the more black puddles he spawns shooting the missiles out of them. This boss and mechanic in my experience is the hardest part and is especially difficult on
as well. Getting your 60% or 80%
right before you engage Ventunax is really helpful in killing the boss. The trash mobs that you have to watch out for are
. The castigator has
which should be kicked as often as possible, this ability is already brutal and if it goes on somebody whilst
is out then you will die. The goliath has
which if it goes off normally it will drop you super low (potentially kill you but not often on Tyran), but when this is enraged this will probably be a full group wipe if it goes off. The stealthclaws just beat up your tank and should be kited like your life depends on it.
The angels at the end I would say have a mandatory enrage dispel for
. The nature of those mini bosses in this dungeon just require them to be soothed once they enter raging.

Plaguefall's lenient timer with use of
s in this dungeon make it very forgiving to deaths and pulling slow. I do think all the affixes of
are all rough in their own ways in this dungeon making this dungeon more difficult than most other weeks that this dungeon is ranked, which is why the slide has occurred.
This dungeons difficulty comes with the final 2 bosses and a lot of the trash in the back half of the instance. The notable trash packs that are difficult here are the packs with
. The ambusher melees incredibly hard on the tank and has a
which is an AOE leap. These occurring while
can be super dangerous for the tank and he needs to be very careful if there is no dispel on the Ambusher. The group needs to be wary of the Sniper as his shot can be rough once he does also enter raging. The defender is chill though. The other notably scary trash on
ability stacks on your tank and is super dangerous to melee as it is a Fervent Strike type ability.
The bosses of
are normally very rough on
. This coupled with
makes these bosses even more tedious as the spread mechanic on the quaking when having to deal with the tentacles or just stacking up on Domina makes quaking really annoying and / or cause deaths.
Also, be careful on your
pull. If you pull all the slimes and they enrage at the same time they can kill your tank immediately.

De Other Side
De Other Side on
is very time restrictive. The time it takes to kill
normally is a really daunting task. That coupled with the only real part of the instance that has unique pulls is the Ardenweald area makes this dungeon rough if you do not have the raw DPS (or ilvl) to time the key. Fortunately though,
both do not affect this dungeon in a way that would be overwhelming. This dungeon, similar to Theater of Pain, is just a dungeon that is a damage check and if you have the damage then the dungeon is typically pretty easy.
I still think that the timer and
are the biggest issues this week in De Other Side.
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. This leads to potential tank deaths as
and enormous pulls are very dangerous. The
are also quite potent if kicks are missed as well. This is the reason that a lot of higher end groups are skipping these mobs. As for
, you can die on
whenever you are getting ported back to the platform, but there really is not much counter play if this happens. I am sorry for your loss if it does though.

Theater of Pain
DO NOT GO INTO THIS DUNGEON WITHOUT A
Theater of Pain is definitely one of the more difficult dungeons to deal with on
. The reason this dungeon is as low as it is is because of the very difficult timer, 5 Tyrannical bosses to deal with, and bosses that all take a substantial amount of time. While
is mostly irrelevant, it still can be annoying on
as there are stack / grip style mechanics that are rough.
requires you to bring an enrage dispel to this dungeon to be able to deal with the mini bosses. Without the dispel your tank will get smoked.
The bosses and pride timings are the biggest road block 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. The amount of DPS that is required to time this key on tyrannical is no joke. I don't think there are any major pain points that need to be addressed that also were not addressed in the introduction. Just make sure you also have a soothe for the champions that are in the Xav wing and you should be okay assuming you are overgeared.

The bosses in Sanguine Depths will almost always be the gatekeepers in this instance regardless of whether it is Fortified or Tyrannical.

with the shield + quaking that are a possibility. On top of that if your healer gets locked out by quaking then that is also very bad news.

every cast of the Castigation on a hunter. For General Kaal, making sure that you retain mana, minimize bleeds, and do not kill yourselves to quaking is super important. The boss + trash is normally rough, but on this weeks affixes it will generally be a bit easier as long as your tank is sturdy.
