With the upcoming MDI All-Stars event at Blizzcon merely a few weeks away, it’s the perfect time to brush up on your MDI knowledge and who will be competing at the event. Cirra, captain of the exceL’s Angels team (winners of the 2018 MDI event earlier this year), is here to show you everything you need to know as a viewer, as well as which classes you are most likely to see at the event and why.
For those of you that don’t know, exceL’s Angels (formerly knows as Kjell’s Angels) won the MDI finals 3-2 against Method NA. The team consists of:
Divinefield, who fills the Tank role;
Cirra, the captain and Healer for the group;
Ashine, Dorullkjell, and Herudra, who fill out the DPS roster for the team.
Some of you may also know Ashine as the writer of our Subtlety Rogue PvE guide, which he took on at the start of Battle for Azeroth.
The video, narrated by Cirra, goes over the UI that you can expect to see at the MDI, as well as what you should be looking for in each part. Ever wondered why the casters are calling the teams equal, but one of them clearly has the boss-HP advantage? Cirra’s got the answer!
There is also a closer look at the strengths of the most likely classes to appear, why they would be featuring in the event and where their weaknesses are. Regardless of whether you are a veteran of the Mythic+ scene or just starting out, these pointers might end up helping the next time you’re making a group in the dungeon finder!
Note: for those of you that might be wondering why the footage in the video is from Legion dungeons – it is because this will be the first MDI event where the Battle for Azeroth dungeons are being played.
The event will take place at 17:30 CET on 3rd November, with 3 matches in total, each working on a best of 3 system. The first match will feature exceL’s Angels going up against Free Marsy, with their dungeons and affixes being as follows:
