Season 1 brought a host of fresh changes to this popular World of Warcraft game mode, including a brand new seasonal affix called Thundering, an updated dungeon rotation, and an increase in item level rewards. Feel free to check out our “Getting Started in Mythic+ Guide” if you’re new to World of Warcraft.

Dragonflight Season 1 Mythic+ Dungeons

One of the most significant changes in Season 1 is the introduction of the Dragonflight Season 1 Mythic+ Dungeon Pool. Rather than having all eight new Dragonflight dungeons available for Mythic+ play, only four of them will be included in the Mythic+ pool, alongside four dungeons from previous expansions. Specifically, Season 1’s Mythic+ pool will feature two dungeons from Legion, one from Warlords of Draenor, and one from Mists of Pandaria.

Here’s a rundown of the eight dungeons available in the Mythic+ difficulty for Dragonflight Season 1

Dragonflight Season 1 Affix: Thundering

Get ready for a new Mythic+ seasonal affix in Dragonflight Season 1 – Thundering! This affix adds a new layer of challenge to the game mode, periodically marking all players with different debuffs that boost their damage and healing by 30%. However, if the debuffs are not removed before they expire, they will explode and cause significant damage to the player.

To remove the debuffs, players must come into contact with a player who has the opposite debuff. This is where it gets tricky – the Primal Overload sends out two different marks: Mark of Wind and Mark of Lightning, both of which have a 15-second duration. If players fail to clear the debuffs before they expire, they will be afflicted with Primal Overload and be stunned for 5 seconds while taking heavy damage over time.

It’s important to note that in a Mythic+ dungeon, there are five players, so one player will not be able to clear the debuff. However, as long as the other four players successfully clear their debuffs, the player without a cleared debuff will not be punished for it expiring and will benefit from the damage increase until the debuff drops off.
