Mythic Keystone Dungeon Changes Coming With Patch 7.2

Patch 7.2 will bring several changes to the Mythic Keystone Dungeon System as well: New and removed Affixes, changes to rewards and a new scaling in difficulty. Here is a quick overview.

New and Changed Affixes Coming With Patch 7.2

  • The Overflowing Affix has been removed
  • New: Bursting
  • New: Quaking
  • New: Grievous
  • The range for Bolstering has been reduced to 30 yards (was 45)
  • Necrotic duration reduced by 1 second, now expires as soon as you leave combat
  • Tyrannical bonus lowered from 20% to now 15%
  • Fortified bonus lowered to 30%, down from 40%

Changed Scaling in Difficulty

Patch 7.2 brings some sort of a difficulty squish for Dungeons: NPC health will be buffed by 30% and as a result, Mythic +0 should now feel like a Mythic +4 did before 7.2.


Changed Gear And Artifact Power Rewards

Raised item level in Dungeons

Alongside a harder difficulty, the gear you receive upon completing a run gets a buff:

  • Mythic 0: 865 item level
  • Mythic 2-3: 870 item level
  • Mythic 4-5: 875 item level
  • Mythic 6-7: 880 item level
  • Mythic 8-9: 885 item level
  • Mythic 10+: 890 item level

Raised item level in weekly chest

And of course the item level of your weekly rewards will be higher as well:

  • Mythic 2: 875 item level
  • Mythic 3: 880 item level
  • Mythic 4: 885 item level
  • Mythic 5: 890 item level
  • Mythic 6: 890 item level
  • Mythic 7: 895 item level
  • Mythic 8: 895 item level
  • Mythic 9: 900 item level
  • Mythic 10+: 905 item level

Artifact Power Rewards for Mythic Keystone Dungeons Changed

To prevent endless Maw of Souls farming, with Patch 7.2 the amount of AP you receive upon completing a dungeon is tied more closely to difficulty and length of a dungeon. On top of that, a large amount of AP will be contained in your weekly chest, based on the highest Keystone you’ve completed the week before.

Cathedral of Eternal Night And Karazhan Mythic + Added

A completely new dungeon will be added to the game: the Cathedral of Eternal Night. Of course, it will be available for Mythic+ runs, as well as Karazhan. The latter one will be split in two parts (Lower Karazhan and ) and Nightbane will be not available in keystone runs.


Vantus Runes for Mythic+

Last but not least: Vantus Runes will be added for Mythic Keystone Dungeons:
