Mythic Forgotten Experiments - First Look | Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible 10.1 PTR
Dragon House takes a first look at the new raid Everest Shadowed Crucible's Mythic difficulty, specifically Mythic Forgotten Experiments. Here, Dragon House goes over what's new on Mythic, how to fight changes, and potential approaches. Keep in mind that this is not a complete guide on how to defeat this boss on Mythic, and also that it is PTR, so things can change or be reworked greatly.
The main mechanic on Mythic is the Zealous Creation. When Naldris reaches 50, Thadrian spawns, and when Chadron reaches 50, Ryanther spawns instead of when its predecessor is dead like it is on Normal and Heroic difficulties. This means you will have to deal with some overlapping mechanics to make it a lot more hectic and healing intense.
On top of this, some heroic abilities have been beefed up. Neldris' Rending Charge, which used to be called Mutilate, now lasts forever, so it's extremely important that no one except the targeted players gets targeted by this. Four players could be targeted by this per cast, so the longer he's alive, the more you have to heal. Big Break and Ryantha's Temporal Anomaly now apply Temporal Fracture for 20 seconds to anyone who bounces it, which increases its damage by 100.
Apart from the Temporal Fracture, the ability itself has been reworked since heroic testing where you just soak this to avoid healing the boss. Now you instead bounce it, so it does not go away, it just gets knocked away from whichever player hugs it. The ability now gives the boss an absorb rather than heal as it was before. You can bounce this as much as you want to; however, you don't want the same player to bounce it multiple times in a row since each bounce increases damage taken by 100.
Everything just hurts more, and since half of the time you're stuck with two bosses up, you'll get some nasty overlaps and lot more stacks of both Rending Charge bleed that last forever but also Chadrious and Stable Essence. Each time you dispel it, it goes to a new player and spawns an ad. Currently, this gets out of hand extremely fast, and dispelling it at the wrong time can easily lead to a wipe since not only do you need to kill an ad, but if that ad is alive during violent eruption, everyone just dies. But if you don't dispel it well, then that player or those players die.
At the moment, it looks like you're going to end up with one stack on each player anytime you dispel. You have to Master Spell four times, spawning 20 ads; it has to die. That's going to be fun. Oh no, priest! Currently, you really want to kill Chadrius fast, but due to the new Mythic mechanic, he will join when the first boss is at 50. So, you either hard-swap to Chatteris as soon as he spawns and leave an Elders at 50, and hopefully, kill Chadrius before Unstable Essence gets too much out of hand, but at the cost of stacking up the bleed on the raid from an Elder's Charge.
Alternatively, finish an Eldris before swapping to Chadrius to have lower bleed stack but at the cost of more unstable Essences and Remnant ads. Regardless, it seems that Chadrus and Stabil Essence need to be toned down just a little bit as he casts it so often because you have it on so many players so fast, and it just becomes madness fun but perhaps a tad too much for such an early boss. Or just look your healers in the eye and say just heal floor head go get your rank one.
