The Weekly Route: Fortified, Sanguine, Grievous, and Shrouded

This week's affixes are Fortified, Sanguine, Grievous, and Shrouded!

We’ve now got routes available for each of the dungeons! They’ve already undergone some serious changes from last week but will likely see more changes over the coming weeks as we learn more about what is and isn’t worth your time in these dungeons!

Click on a Copy Route link for any dungeon to copy the MDT string for that route, so you can then paste it into the the "Import" window of your Mythic Dungeon Tools addon and get the route for yourself!

These routes have 0-1 skips that require invis pots (or shroud, or in many cases other possibilities exist too!).

The Weekly Routes

Grimrail Depot [back to top]

Sanguine in this dungeon is of course going to be painful so consider pulling back to the most open areas you can find.

Iron Docks [back to top]

A few nicely hidden Shrouded mobs are off to the side and noted in this route! MDT now also features the ability to plan out the Iron Stars and what they’ll hit - use this as a guideline but note that you can miss a few mobs and it’ll be fine!

Tazavesh: Streets of Wonder [back to top]

Lots of extra Shrouded neutral mobs have been added to this dungeon (including at least one that isn’t in MDT yet) - grab these during RP for stats and profit!

Tazavesh: So’leah’s Gambit [back to top]

There’s now a shrouded neutral pirate in the cave just after you kill the first boss! Sanguine in the murloc area is of course a tremendous pain. We’re now offering two routes, one of which Skips Zul’gamux and the Guardians

Mechagon: Junkyard [back to top]

Junkyard has a weird mechanic where the Hard Mode robot will fly over one of the three bosses and move around after you kill a boss. The annoying part is that this rotates weekly but is different in different regions.

This route SHOULD work for NA servers though you may have to swap which bosses you do 2nd and 3rd. It’s 50/50 whether it will work for EU - we’re gathering information over the next few weeks and will have

Mechagon: Workshop [back to top]

We no longer advise skipping the last pack in this dungeon - it’s a bit tough but it’s very hard to skip (you’ll need to either use a battle rez or stuff like Warlock Gateway). Instead we’d recommend a shroud or invis pots in the trash before Kujo, though you can just pull everything and hold the W key and be just fine too!

Lower Karazhan [back to top]

We have two routes for this dungeon, one with no skips that goes Opera -> Maiden -> Moroes -> Attumen, and one with skips that goes Opera -> Moroes -> Attumen -> Maiden. They’re not actually that different any more beyond the boss order, and we may consolidate into one route in future weeks.

The TL;DR plan of the skips route is to skip everything up to the Opera event, then skip the Ushers afterwards (or even die and take the door to the left after you release!) and hop down to Moroes, then go to Attumen, take care of him, head back up to maiden grabbing some of the easy trash along the way until we hit 100%, at which point we take out Maiden, kill the boss with lust and all of our Shrouded buffs, collect the loot, and hearth out!

By contrast, the no skips route is a little more straightforward and fights a few of the more nasty enemies to avoid having to do all the skips and such.

Upper Karazhan [back to top]

Zul’gamux has been moved in this dungeon - be warned that MDT needs to be updated to show this new position (the route has now been updated too!)
