Mythic+ Invitational May Drive Game-Wide Changes for All Players

Mythic+ Invitational May Drive Game-Wide Changes for All Players - MMORPG.com

During last weekend's World of Warcraft Mythic+ Dungeon Invitational, developers were closely watching the competition to determine trends that teams were using. During game play, Blizzard's Lead Encounter Designer Morgan Day said that he and his team noticed that teams were "stacking" classes with combat resurrection, a "much powerful utility". This stacking is dampened in raids, according to Day, and is something the team is considering bringing to the next MDI & maybe the wider game.

Newman: What else can we look forward to?

Day: As far as things for the future, I think mythic plus is here to stay, obviously -- everyone loves it. We would be crazy not to carry it into the future.

For me, as my own personal thing, I don’t know if this is something that we could say we were going to do for sure, I would love to get some more strategy built into specific affixes. Things that have a higher degree of mastery, potentially, or things that you could use for your benefit, but it comes at a risk.

Imagine if sanguine made you take more damage and deal more damage. What would that look like? Things like that would be fun to explore for new affixes, in terms of introducing new things. We don’t have specific concrete plans for that. It’s something that we’ll talk about a lot more I’m sure.
