Mythic is a difficulty of dungeons and raids. Introduced with Warlords of Draenor, it is the new cutting edge difficulty, replacing the position of Heroic raid difficulty.[1] In Patch 6.2, Mythic mode was expanded to include 5-man dungeon instances.


There are presently 21 Dungeons available with Mythic difficulty. Unlike Normal and Heroic difficulties, Mythic difficulty Dungeons cannot be accessed through the Dungeon Finder tool.

All Legion Dungeons (with the exception of Assault on Violet Hold) feature a Mythic+ dungeon system that adds additional levels of difficulty onto the base Mythic level.


Mythic difficulty for Raids is designed to be the most challenging instance content available, offering the highest item level gear and exclusive achievements, mounts and other rewards. In contrast to the flexible Normal and Heroic modes, raid size is fixed at 20 players. There are presently nine raids available over three expansions with Mythic difficulty.

Lead Encounter Designer Ion Hazzikostas suggests that Mythic raids will be composed of 2-3 tanks (mostly 2), 4-6 healers (mostly 5), and around 13 DPS.[2]
