Affix effects

Legend: easy difficulty | medium difficulty | hard difficulty

Short survey to get your feedback on affix difficulty

NOTE: Enemies’ damage and health have been increased for all Heroic and Mythic dungeons, including Mythic Keystone Dungeons.

Level 4 affixes
(these occur at +4 keystones)

  • BolsteringNon-boss enemies will buff nearby allies' health and damage when defeated with a 30yd effective range.

    Note: it's important to kill all the trash in a pull as closely together as possible with this affix as mobs effectively heal as they gain max health (percent translation). Adds spawned from a trash mob or boss ability do not trigger bolster. It's possible to reset bolster on mobs by resetting them via wiping or exiting combat.

  • RagingNon-boss enemies will enrage at low health, dealing double damage until killed.

    Note: mobs with high damage targeted abilities or high damage AoE abilities become deadly with this affix. Be sure to focus fire mobs down so there aren't multiple enraged mobs at once.

  • SanguineShortly after death, non-boss enemies will leave a pool of blood on the ground, which grows to a 5yd radius over 2 seconds. This pool heals enemies and damages players for a % of their maximum health. The pool's radius is 8 yds.

    Note: ez pz affix, don't stand in pools and make sure mobs don't stand in them either.

  • TeemingAdditional non-boss enemies are present throughout the dungeon; kill count requirement increased.

    Note: Not much different from usual unless paired with other problematic affixes (Skittish). The most notable change with this affix is that the Enemy Forces Defeated kill requirement is increased. Certain trash pulls can be really nasty with this affix depending on the dungeon.

  • BurstingWhen slain, non-boss enemies explode, causing all players to suffer 5% of their maximum health in damage over 4 seconds. This effect stacks.

    Note: As far as I know there is no range on this. Consider it to work like Mythic Il'gynoth blobs.

Level 7 affixes
(these occur at +7 keystones)

  • NecroticEnemy melee attacks apply a stacking debuff that deals damage and reduces healing received. Debuff lasts 9 seconds and is dispelled when exiting combat.

    Note: Strong AoE CC or slows are great for this affix to allow for kiting mobs while the tank's Necrotic stacks fall off.

  • SkittishTanks generate 75% less threat.

    Note: This affix is a lot easier if Tricks of the Trade or Misdirection are used on cooldown. Strong AoE CC is beneficial here as well in case mobs get loose.

  • VolcanicEnemies cause eruptions of flame near distant players. Additional volcanoes may appear near existing volcanoes.

    Note: Keep an eye out for the volcano animation under your feet or near you. Sometimes you may not have to move!

  • ExplosiveCreatures have a chance to summon an Explosive Orb at a nearby location that will explode, inflicting damage 50% of the player’s maximum health as damage.

    Note: An explosive orb will spawn with a 6 second cast. Ff the cast goes off the entire party will take 50% of their max hp in damage. They are AOE immune so you can't cleave them down! They can also spawn on boss fights.

  • QuakingPlayers will periodically Quake, inflicting 20% of the player’s maximum health as damage and interrupting spell casts of themselves and nearby allies.

    Notes: spread out.

  • GrievousNote: While below 90% health, players are afflicted with Grievous Wound.

    Note: You bleed until you are healed above 90%. Finally, another reason to blame your healer!

Level 10 affixes
(these occur at +10 keystones)

  • FortifiedNon-bosses have more health and deal 30% more damage.

    Note: interrupting and dodging any/all trash mob abilities becomes an absolute priority with this affix. Most of the time spent in the dungeon will be fighting beefy trash, don't be afraid to use CDs.

  • TyrannicalBosses have more health and deal 15% more damage.

    Note: Boss abilities are no longer trivial. Boss mechanics need to be done or people will die. Some fights become endurance tests because they last so long.

Complete a Mythic Keystone run within the timer to upgrade a keystone.

Complete it with 40% of the timer remaining and upgrade it 3 times in one go, rewarding 3 chests of loot at the end. One for the difficulty level completed, one for the next level up and one for the level after that.

Example: You complete a +4 keystone with 40% of the timer remaining. It upgrades to a +7 keystone and you are awarded 3 chests at the end of the run, one containing +4 difficulty loot, one containing +5 level loot and one containing +6 level loot (all the levels you "successfully completed").

Complete a run with 20% of the timer remaining and upgrade it 2 times in one go - rewarding 2 chests of loot at the end. Like the example above but remove the last chest and difficulty level.

Each chest at the end of the run guarantees the GROUP two pieces of loot from the dungeon loot table - scaled to whatever item level is appropriate for the difficulty you completed the dungeon on (see table).

At the start of a week (after raid/mythic reset) a chest will appear in your order hall giving loot based on the highest level keystone dungeon COMPLETED the previous week, within the timer or not.

In addition, the chest will also have a downgraded keystone based on the highest level keystone run YOU COMPLETED in the previous week.

It is most beneficial to complete a +10 weekly to get the highest item level gear every reset. If that isn't feasible go for the next highest you can complete. Again, you don't need to finish in the timer to get the weekly chest.
