    Default Mercurio Season 2 Mythic+ Fun

    Hello multi-boxing friends! I took a long break from WoW to focus on some other RL things, but life has calmed down a bit so I've been having fun in WoW again.

    I thought I'd share a few videos from my Mythic+ runs. I've been watching some SerScruffington streams and wanted to make a bit of a contribution here in case anyone is interested in another Mythic+ perspective. Though my setup is significantly less complex, I've been having some fun (and some success).

    Here's a Tol Dagor +6 that I got a +2 key upgrade on with my leather team of 3 boomkins, a resto druid, and a vengeance demon hunter.

    It's about time we got some Mercurio back up in here—it seems Scruffington and his cat, Fluffington, are reinvigorating the scene (and I'm feeling a bit left out, to be honest). I gotta say, that's some nice crisp 4K quality at 60 FPS on that video there, and for that, I give it two thumbs up (regardless of skill or outcome).

    I know Scruffington has been trying to level a Demon Hunter, but how do you feel about it as a tank? I know their health can be spikey, but have you been able to try any other tanks in Mythic+ in 8.1.5? Also, while I didn't watch the video under a microscope, I don't see you using Infernal Strike (the jump move) on the DH, is that right?

    Thanks, MiRai, it is fun to be back. I really like the concept of having a tank that can passively give +5% magic damage to all my caster toons (which is most of my damage dealers, including all the healers that chip in for a bit of damage). In the WoW community, the DH is pretty universally seen as the weakest tank at this point. For me, it is slightly even weaker since I don't use the Infernal Strike move. I've also chosen a couple of talents that are considered sub-par because the best talents in those rows count on using Infernal Strike. The move is still on my bar and I use it occasionally, but typically it just takes too much focus on one toon when I'm spending mental energy controlling five. All that said, the DH seems to perform fine for me at the level of Mythic+ that I'm running.

    I do run other tanks as well and notice that the DH is a bit more squishy, but that 5% magic damage buff helps, especially when I'm running a lot of druids that can trade leather gear.

    I should be able to throw up some more videos of other team comps too. I've had some success with a wide variety of combinations and my simpler setup means I can mix and match any toons with almost no additional setup.

    If you have any pointers for submitting videos, just let me know.

    Wonderful video. A couple questions on your setup.

    What are the scrolling bars that show the icon of the last couple spells your party has cast?

    What is your screen resolution and what you set your wow screens to? You seem to have room for a 6th slot if you wanted.

    Again, great video.

    Hey JG,

    The scrolling bars on the bottom right come from the TrufiGCD addon. I don't look at them often, but they are nice when setting up a new rotation and seeing how it performs and in troubleshooting when something breaks. It is pretty easy to set up.

    I'm running my monitor at 3440x1440. I run ten toons most of the time, so all the blank areas on the bottom and right side of the main window are usually filled when I'm doing typical things like world questing or leveling. I kill five of the unused windows when I do Mythic+ so my round robin interrupts don't go to "dead" toons (toons standing in Boralus Harbor idly going through their rotations while their friends are working hard to better themselves).

    So yes, my setup revolves around not only a 6th, but having slots 6-10 available. If I get more runs up, you'll see other slots being used as I mix and match.

    You might then be a prime candidate to try DynamicBoxer (sorry for the plug but I think it'd be relevant to you). There is a thread with more details on the addon sub forum but the short version is it lets you log in/out characters without having to re export anything, in other words, dynamic teams. You can use any team as a template (or make once for all 1 team with say character named SLOT1...SLOTN that don't even exist and log real characters in those slot or create them on the fly)

    I'd love to hear back from anyone willing to try

    Even if the videos don't see a lot of views (as multibxers, we generally don't reach a large audience), I always find it interesting to see how others have their setup laid out, as well as just how they play and approach fights.

    If you're referring to submitting videos to YouTueb, then quality of the video is fine on my end, although for those watching on smaller displays, the reduced resolution of the main region may affect them slightly (maybe, maybe not - I think it's fine).

    However, if you're referring to "submitting" as in creating threads, then, as both a moderator and someone who likes to point people to threads on the forum when they ask about what multiboxers can do, I prefer to see current-expansion dungeon videos put into megathreads created by the author (if they plan on recording and sharing multiple videos/dungeons), preferably broken down by patch or season. It makes it easy to find things and know which patch of the game someone was on when they finished a dungeon, seeing as Mythic+ difficulty changes along with gear availability and item level as the expansion progresses, so it helps to throw some categorization onto links and what not.

    This is not directly aimed at you, but, again, I don't know if that's what you were asking when you mentioned pointers for submitting videos, and the way you have this thread set up is perfect for just adding in additional replies and links into the first post.

    @Moorea, thanks, I'd be interested to try it out.

    @MiRai, I appreciate the feedback. Anything I can do to make things easier for you guys.

    So... here's another video in the same thread

    This is Mythic+8 through Freehold that I finished in time with a Blood DK, Resto Shammy, and 3 BM Hunters
