Our guide writer Panthea is back, and he's doing plenty of Dragon Riding in the new Dragonflight Alpha zone. He's made videos for all the challenges in the Ohn'ahran Plains with a gold completion, so let's take a look!
We're back to Mythic+ with the first look at the new season! We have 2 weeks behind us and there's been quite a few changes as you might expect with a class tuning pass, new seasonal affix and new dungeons, all of which combined brought an extremely familiar face back to the top!
Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.
These past 2 weeks were:
Tyrannical, Inspiring, Quaking
Fortified, Sanguine, Grievous (and Shrouded)
While both Destruction and Survival got some AoE nerfs, it seems the Hunter spec was much more mildly affected, as it takes over the top spot from the Warlock, which didn't go too far, landing in 4th. The big news, however, is the rise of the ancient Mythic+ king, a spec that has dominated the format for an incredibly long time, and it's now back, almost at No.1 - and it's Fire! Outlaw climbs quit a bit into No.3 as well, proving that the tuning it got worked and then some, as it's seen quite a huge bump in raids as well. With all this rising something has to fall, and it's Windwlaker, taking a dive down to 5th, followed by a much bolstered Demonology. Shadow is the biggest winner of the patch so far, as it rises 9 spots into 7th, as Marksmanship only drops 1 spot. You could make a case for Balance being the big winner as well, as it slips into the final top 10 spot, a whopping 10 positions up from before the patch. The bottom 2 remain the same, as there's no saving Assassination and Beast Mastery, but Retribution climbs a little out of the gutter as it rises 2 and leaves the bottom 3rd spot to Unholy.
Mythic+ All Keys 95th Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
The generalist bracket is where it's all happening for Fire, as the king has returned in style and taken over the place. Survival and Outlaw are close behind, as the Warlocks bunch up to complete the top 5, while the rest of the top 10 remains very similar to the top percentiles.
Mythic+ All Keys All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
Unfortunately there seems to be an issue with individual key graphs so we won't be looking at any individual key bracket this time around. Tanks
The tank situation remains almost exactly the same, as Paladins move 1 up and surpass Druids.
Tank All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
We see a change at the top for healers, however, as Holy Priest takes Resto Shaman down, flipping the stats from Season 3. Mistweavers drop to the bottom, as Discipline moves out of the gutter.
Healer All Percentile Data by Warcraft Logs.
For even more in-depth data for each individual key head on over to Warcraft Logs. And if you're interested in more info on the specs themselves you can always check out our class guides or our extensive Mythic+ guides as well, which have tier lists, dungeon rankings and more.
Blizzard encountered some issues during this week's Alpha build that require extended maintenance to fix. As a result, Dragonflight Alpha realms remain offline until later today.
We were supposed to get a new Alpha build yesterday. Unfortunately, Blizzard ran into some issues with the update and the plan is to deploy the build today. The final Alpha phase 6 begins this week with all zones open for testing.
We encountered an issue during today’s Alpha update that will require an extended maintenance to resolve.
We hope to reopen the Alpha for further testing on the new build tomorrow, Wednesday, August 17.
Blizzard have announced they're temporarily closing the newly linked Auction House due to a critical bug. You can read about all the changes that arrived with the new patch here, including the region-wide commodities AH, as well as it arriving on the companion app.
We’ve got a critical bug with the Auction House in 9.2.7, and we’ve closed the AH while we investigate and decisively fix it.
We’ll track this issue closely and provide any further updates as soon as we have them.
A new set of hotfixes arrives, with dungeon, item, and PvP improvements for retail, as well as BCC.
