    Patch 9.1 PTR - Mythic+ Rating System Preview, New Mythic+ Affix and Anima Powers

    Patch 9.1 PTR - Mythic+ Rating System Preview
    The Mythic+ Rating System that was teased by Raider.IO is now active on the Public Test Realm. Keep in mind that this feature has just been added, so everything is subject to change.

    Mythic+ Rating System Preview
    • Players can check their Mythic+ Rating in the Mythic Keystone tab.
    • Hovering over the dungeons will show the points gained from each instance.
    • Mythic+ Rating can be increased by completing dungeons more quickly or on higher difficulties.
    • Completing keys on both Fortified and Tyrannical will further increase the score, as previously mentioned in the developer interview with Ion Hazzikostas.



    Creating and Joining Groups
    • Group leaders can now see the applicant's Mythic+ Score along with their name, role and item level.
    • Alt characters do not show any info about the player's main character, their points, nor the number of dungeons completed in time for different brackets (5-9, 10-14, 15+). These statistics are currently provided by the Raider.IO Addon, which will most likely remain useful in that regard.
    • The score tab is currently clickable on the PTR (although broken in functionality). If this gets fixed, group leaders will be able to sort applicants by their Mythic+ Score.



    Patch 9.1 - New Mythic+ Affix and Anima Powers
    Shadowlands Mythic+ Season 2 Affix has been added in Build 38511: [PH] SL S2 Affix - [PH] Defeat the Jailer's forces to gain cool powers!

    The "cool powers" referenced above seem to be Anima Powers, some of which were added in an earlier build. Most of the following Anima Powers are currently used in the fight with the Tarragrue in the Sanctum of Domination raid, but they might also show up in Mythic+ Dungeons.

    Thanks, Blizz, for making it harder for new mythic runners to get into groups.

    How does this make it harder? It's basically just RIO (which everyone is using) integrated into the game.

    Not everyone is using RIO. When it comes to really high keys, then yes, pretty much everyone uses it. But for very low 2-10 keys not many people I've played with were using it. Even at low 10s many players aren't using it.

    But after this addition, players, who before didn't care about RIO and just picked people based on item level, will now pick players based on score. Which will be 0 at start for everyone, so everyone will have same start, but a month later it will be a completely different situation. Who would invite a player with 0 score a month after patch when other players have higher score and everyone can see score? Not many.

    Another change to make life of casual players harder. Ion is indeed a proper Elitist Jerk (for those who don't know, that's the name of guild he was in).

    Nope. Bad troll.

    I feel the above truly reflect what is happening in the US and its allies, or has been happening for some time.

    I really hope they use this score for group finding one day. Imagine you could just queue up your key and you get players added to your group with comparable experience / skill. So the higher your rating, the better your groupmates, the higher keys you can run, the better loot the get and the higher your rating will be. With that, one skip all the M+ group finding bullshit and still have a gear progression.

    Yeah, sounds as great as when gearscore became a thing in Wrath.

    Just another toxic attribute to the already unbearable M+ community, but this time, it's standardized and forced. The only people that love this will instantly convey that toxic attitude, proving the whole point of why people are against it.

    I mean, they can go ahead though. Nothing like more barriers to niche content that will prevent casual people from wanting to go further in the game, adding unnecessary pressure to something that didn't need anymore.

    Sounds good.
    Then add the same for rated arena, rbg and mythic raid and the game is finally solo player friendly.

    Wait... how many bonuses are there? Are we going to have to memorize priority powers to use each week? Are they semi random? Will one group have advantage over another because of the powers they get? Will a dungeon be impossible because you can't jump anymore? Not looking forward to keeping track of this.

    haha, no, people will reach for best score, not "comparable" score...

    So basically you're not getting into, nor will anyone join your, pug groups 2-3 weeks into the patch unless you've been grinding M+ the whole time.

    Great.

    It would be nice if Blizzard would stop catering to the 1% and start putting their resources into systems designed to help the 99% of players who aren't elite.

    I get that this company is American and America is all about building systems to perpetuate the existence of an undeserved elite, but c'mon already.

    I mean... what if and hear me out here. This helps players group together at lower key levels and they work together and improve using their casual power to fight off the elitists' hiding under the bed?

    Yes... if only these scores didn't exist. I would just love to have a system where I am clueless about other people's experience and picking good players was just a random shot in the dark that's most likely to miss.

    As sad as it sounds, this will very likely be the case. Yet more catering to the hardcore and more perpetuating of the competitive e-sport mindset. Good to know that Blizzard doesn't want my sub anymore, won't have to waste the money.

    So we won't need raider rio addon anymore? That's nice. I hope the score I curently have will stay and will be converted to rating.
