Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 DPS Log Rankings for Vault of the Incarnates: Day 1 We taking a look at the "day 1" logs (since both US and EU regions have had a shot at the post-patch tuning raid), but the Warlock shenanigans are still affecting the rankings, with two bugs that needed to be hotfixed, one arriving just today with the Corruption nerf and the other the pet buffs affecting the character itself. So it may be best to not take the Warlock stats too seriously for now. And, of course, keep in mind these are very preliminary rankings as it's only been a few days since the patch.
