World of Warcraft Dragonflight players have shared their frustrations with the title’s Mythic+ timers, claiming they are incredibly unbalanced between Azure Vaults and Shadowmoon Burial Grounds.

Dragonflight has earned a lot of praise in the World of Warcraft community. For example, Asmongold called it a “massive step up” from the Shadowlands expansion. Additional praise also came from efforts to maximize deaf representation in the enlargement.

And while criticism seems to be at an all-time low, Dragonflight players have discovered a serious problem with the design of some Mythic+ dungeons. More specifically, players have objected to the time limits.

For those who don’t know, Mythic+ difficulty level dungeons in WoW require the party to beat the dungeon within a certain time limit, remove a minimum % of mobs in the dungeon and of course beat all bosses. So the timer becomes the most important aspect, as you need to optimize for the shortest possible run.

Reddit user Yuuffy pointed out in a Reddit thread that defeating Shadowmoon Burial Grounds on Mythic+ will make your party die more than 30 times and still make it in time, but let your whole party die 2 times in Azure Vaults and you won’t make it.

WoW Dragonflight players baffled by Mythic+ dungeon timers

Many players agreed with the original poster and brought up stories that support how ridiculously forgiving the Shadowmoon Burial Ground Mythic+ timer is compared to other dungeons.

“Recently played a 15 SBG where the tank lost its internet connection right after Sadana and had to run to his friend’s house with his laptop to continue playing,” said one player. “Still timed with 2 minutes left.”

Others confirmed that running Azure Vaults on Mythic+ is unnecessarily brutal. “Azure Vault has about 2 trillion mobs,” says one user.

Others showed a lack of confidence in Blizzard to fix it quickly, with a sarcastic remark: “Don’t worry, it will be fixed in 2 years.”

We can’t say for sure what the future holds for the Dragonflight expansion, but for now it seems pretty solid, despite a misstep here and there.
