Official description[]

World of Warcraft esports is expanding into the fast-paced, highly competitive world of Mythic Keystone dungeons with the Mythic Dungeon Invitational. We’re looking for the best of the best from around the world to battle it out for a share of $100,000.[2]


Proving Grounds

Proving Grounds are a qualification period open to any player with a good standing account. In order to qualify for the next stage, a group of 5 players would need to team up and complete five level 14 Mythic Keystone Dungeons within a time frame. If successful, each player on the team will have their account flagged to have access to the Tournament Realm and continue onward to the Time Trials.[1]

Time Trials

Each team will have to make five attempts at each dungeon in a three-dungeon pool. Players are informed on what dungeons and affixes 48 hours prior to the Time Trials beginning.[3] The dungeons and affixes alternate each week.

Teams that have completed the time trials will receive a banner toy associated with the season.

Global Finals

The All-Stars was a special live exhibition tournament that summoned some of the best dungeon-running teams in the world for BlizzCon 2018. Blizzard brought the worlds of the MDI and the WoW Arena World Championship together in Anaheim for the first time ever.

The top four teams from the MDI Global Finals were invited to the MDI All-Stars, where they tackled the newest Battle for Azeroth dungeons live on stage in front of thousands of attendees and esports fans that watched from online. This was the first MDI tournament to feature Battle for Azeroth.[4]

The Great Push[]

The Great Push where teams competed by doing the highest Keystone (starting at +24) and attempting to complete the dungeons as fast as possible. Teams were able to repeatedly run any dungeon during this time and by conclusion of the finals runs, the team's highest keystones from every dungeon would be combined to determine the final standings. This is a race to complete as many Mythic+ dungeons as possible.[5] It was introduced on 7 April 2021.[6]

It returned for a season two in December 2021[7] with a toy, Inv misc mdi banner01 [Tormented Banner of the Opportune] rewarding to all registered teams that complete under time the two dungeons within the Proving Grounds.[8]
