Secure your spot* in the Mythic Dungeon Invitational by making a run at Mythic Keystone dungeons from July 25-August 8 during the Proving Grounds! The top scoring contenders will be invited to join as one of 32 outstanding teams from around the world, competing for a share of the $100,000 prize pool.
Teams will need to master multiple dungeons during this two week period to be considered. We’ll be judging performance across the 5 dungeons in which the team achieves the highest Keystone Level during this time.
At the end of the two weeks, teams will need to submit their top score using this form. Note that any entries received prior to the end of the Proving Grounds period (August 8) will not be considered. All entries must be received by August 11 by 3:00 p.m. PDT. Only dungeons completed during the Proving Ground period will be considered.

Proving Grounds FAQ
Q. Do any completed Mythic Keystone Dungeons count, or do I need to finish the dungeon within the timer for it to be valid?
A. Only dungeons completed within the allotted time will be counted (e.g., Maw of Souls needs to be completed in less than 24 minutes, Black Rook Hold needs to be completed within 39 minutes, etc). If you didn’t complete the dungeon in-time but submit it as one of your runs, you risk invalidating your submission.
Q. Can I submit two different runs for the same dungeon?
A. You’ll need to submit times for 5 different dungeons, with no repeats. For example, you will not be able to submit a 22 Halls of Valor run and a 21 Halls of Valor run.
Q. How do I know what my best dungeon clears were at the end of the Proving Grounds?
A. It’s up to you to keep track of your eligible dungeons during the two-week Proving Grounds period, either by taking screenshots, referencing the in-game Mythic Dungeon UI, or checking the Mythic Keystone Leaderboards for your realm.
Q. Do we have to use the same characters throughout the Proving Grounds? Or can I use alts, or invite some other guild members to push for higher keystone clears?
A. All 5 dungeon times you submit need to be with the same 5 characters; bringing in alternate characters or other players will invalidate your entry. (Please note however, that during the Regional and Global stages of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational your 5-player team will be able to use multiple characters and you won’t be limited to a single class each).
Q. Do I just use my normal characters for the Proving Grounds? What about the later stages of the tournament?
A. You’ll be using your normal retail characters for this portion of the tournament. If you’re selected as one of the 32 teams to compete in the Mythic Dungeon Invitational bracket, you’ll be given access to a specially configured tournament realm for your region that will have everything you need to compete (consumables, gear, etc). This will allow us to set keystone affix combinations different from the current live combination for that week, and allow us to normalize gear and artifact level among all competitors.
Q. If I’m invited to compete in the later stages, do I need to travel somewhere?
A. All stages of the Mythic Dungeon Invitational will be played online, so no travel is required. The tournament realms are physically located in each region to minimize any concerns over latency during the Regional and Global stages of the tournament.
