WoW: Keys, Nerfs, Affix Rotation - The Adjustments of Mythic-Plus Season 2

In Mythic-Plus Season 2 of WoW Shadowlands, you can expect not only the affix Tormented and the new scoring system, but several other adjustments for bosses, keystones, and more. For example, you can change a keystone at the end of a dungeon, get incentives for higher difficulty levels, and adjustments have once again been made to already known affixes.

Shadowlands Season 2 - All Mythic-Plus Changes at a Glance

General Adjustments

  • Reduced the damage of automatic attacks from enemies on Mythic and Mythic+ difficulty by 10%.
  • The following changes will be implemented at the start of Season 2 on July 7:
    • The item level of rewards from normal, heroic, and mythic dungeons at level 60 has been increased by 26. The lower limit of rewards is now 184 for Normal difficulty, 197 for Heroic, and 210 for Mythic.
    • The maximum item level of rewards from dungeons on Mythic+ difficulty has been increased by 26 item levels, and the item level for rewards of some intermediate keystone levels have been adjusted.
    • Rewards from the Great Treasury have been increased by 26 item levels.
    • Dungeon enemy damage on Heroic difficulty has been increased by 6% and enemy health has been increased by 16%.
    • Increased the damage and health of dungeon enemies on Mythic difficulty by 26%.
    • Dungeon enemy damage on Mythic+ difficulty increased by 35% and enemy health increased by 39%.
  • New teleporters to Dungeons: Path of the Hero: Shadowlands - If you complete a dungeon on Mythic+ difficulty at level 20 before the timer expires, you will now receive an achievement and will be able to teleport to the entrance of the completed dungeon in the future. The teleport has an 8 hour cooldown that resets after completing a dungeon on Mythic+ difficulty.
  • In the Hall of Custody in Oribos, Ta'hsup will now offer a keystone to players who do not already have one, as long as they have completed at least one dungeon from Shadowlands on Mythic+ difficulty.
  • Ta'hsup now appears at the end of Mythic+ difficulty dungeons completed before the timer expires. Players whose current keystone is at or below the level of the dungeon they recently completed within the time limit will be able to make a one-time keystone swap with him. Keystones at a higher level than the dungeon recently completed within the time limit cannot be traded. This includes the keystone used for that dungeon.
