Shadowlands Mythic+ DPS, Tank and Healer Log Rankings and Analysis: Week 6 and 7

Recommended Posts

We're back with another look at the logs for Mythic+ for the past 2 weeks for DPS, tank and healer specs! We'll be taking a look at a wide variety of data, from all keys in all three roles for the 95th and all percentiles, as well as take a special look at +15 and +20 keys as well.

The big difference comes after last week's class tuning, as Fury has jumped up significantly, in 7th place at the moment, but the other two specs buffed in the tuning didn't quite fare as well, since Assassination is still at the bottom and Frost Mage only jumped a couple of spots.

Then let's see what our expert has to say about the numbers:

Fire Mage continues to dominate the DPS ladder for Mythic plus for yet another week, and we already talked about why Fire is so good (the uncapped AoE from Flamestrike Flamestrike and Flame Patch Flame Patch, with a combination of Night Fae and Kindling Kindling gameplay where you drop your Combust Combust timer to a minute instead of two minutes - that + the PvP on use trinket makes a great combination). As of now, every class scales the best with primary stats (agi/str/int), so having that in mind can give you some insights.
 
What actually looks interesting is Frost Mage being one of the weakest specs, compared to the early weeks of Mythic+ where that was the dominant spec. This is due to several nerfs to their core Conduit and talents (the Ice Lance Ice Lance potency Conduit Ice Bite Ice Bite got gutted), the spec definitely did suffer quite a lot. Recently they got buffed by 9% flat, which still wasn't enough to put the spec anywhere in the rankings. Despite that, Frost Mage actually provides safety to the party with a permanent slow, which makes it easier for the tank to kite if danger occurs.
 
Another interesting thing to touch on is Fury Warrior. Fury used to be one of the weakest melees in M+, but recently they received a massive buff of 9% on most of their damaging abilities, making the spec one of the best performing melees in Mythic+ as of now. The spec is in a perfect shape - decent mobility, great self-sustain, great damage profile, with the only downside being lack of immunity, which sometimes can be crucial to ensure survivability


Healer Specs

Petko:

Quote

From a healer point of view, nothing really to discuss - Holy Paladin does insane amounts of damage, if played offensive, meaning you use wings for DPS rather than heal. That + assuming you play Ashen Hallow Ashen Hallow (Venthyr) can be extremely powerful for the level 10-15 keys.

Tank Specs

+15 and +20

And finally, let's take a look at the +15 keys for the DPS role specifically, where two of the buffed specs are doing really well, as Assassination is on top and Fury is in 3rd in the high percentiles!

While Fury's spot seems very solid throughout, there's apparently something about +15s that draws a lot of high-level Assassination players to it, as its position drops immediately when looking at the all percentage chart:

The +20ies are different again, going back to a more "standard" layout, with the really REALLY small log numbers creating some very weird charts in the All percentiles bracket, with only 2 Survival hunters making the best of it!

You know this isn't DPS right? 

 

This is just points earned. 

Not sure where it says it's DPS? I'm referring to the DPS role in the article, same as tank and healer. Also it pretty clearly says points in every chart, unlike the Castle Nathria ones where it actually says DPS in the charts. If it's unclear I can maybe mention it int he intro in the future but I figured it was obvious, could be my bad I guess.

Do you know why it only shows points and why the logs dont show damage done statistics? i always found that weird as i thought there are enough samples for dps stats.

I don't actually and it initially confused me as well. I tried to find an explanation on the Warcraft Logs site but it's nowhere to be found. Their Nathria ones are simple and show DPS and HPS without issues.

      As 9.0.5 approaches, we wanted to take a look at just how many players were playing which specs in Mythic Castle Nathria before the patch changes hit. We made some charts for the Warcraft Logs numbers and will be doing them by role, starting with DPS. All of the stats below are based on the past 2 weeks of raids. 
      While we know what the biggest DPS performers are from our weekly check-ins with the Nathria logs, the actual number of players in the raid by spec are close, but look a little different. The most interesting/jarring fact of all on the DPS side is that 4 specs take up more than half of the entire Mythic population:

      Those last few stripes that are so tiny are Frost DK, Assassination, Demonology, Arcane and, of course Survival at the very end. Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The fact that Marksmanship, Fire, Balance and Affliction take up 51% of all DPS specs in Mythic Nathria is a little mind-boggling, especially since performance-wise, those specs don't really stand out that much (aside from Balance, who has reigned supreme for a long time now). Shadow is a particularly interesting case, as it's been at or near the top of the DPS rankings for a long time (it's currently in 3rd spot), and yet its numbers here are pretty low.
      Now let's take a look at the tanks and healers, as their numbers are even more distorted, with some extremely dominant specs. For tanks, Vengenance's domination won't surprise anyone, as it's been the go-to spec for basically all of Shadowlands:

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      In comparison to the DPS role values, 2 tank specs hold 62% of the population, and 3 come up to 74%.
      We see an extremely similar situation for healers, with 2 specs holding 55%, with the bottom two barely breaking 15%.

      Source: Warcraft Logs.
      The biggest takeaway here is in the DPS department, where the numbers don't necessarily conform to the DPS rankings, although the specs that have been generally in the top for a longer time are more represented, as you'd imagine. The dominance of so few specs, however, is a little staggering, especially when looking at tanks and healers.  We can only hope 9.0.5 and its later hotfixes can address these specs, so perhaps some significant buffs would help there.

      The Mythic+ premade group finder gets a lot of use, and the more frustrated players get with it, the weirder the descriptions of the groups get, so we're taking a look at the funny, creepy and one truly perfect one.
      The first one we're taking a look at is your basic reverse psychology move, with some interesting math on top:

      Found by: NORATHEDESTROYER.
      Then we're on to something similar, although a little weirder, with this (hopefully) satiric post:

      Found by: Dasquare22.
      And now here's something... new, really weird and pretty creepy (with the added bonus of many boost group reports in the chat log, which has become a default part of the premade group finding experience):

      Found by: Galind_Halithel.
      This next one isn't really about the description, but two of the groups on the list, and the piece is titled "Ships in the night":

      Found by: AKeeneyedguy.
      But we saved the best for last, with probably the most accurate description and the most successful way to find good group members:

      Found by: sentenza63.

      You've probably/definitely run across some similarly hilarious or weird ones in your time with the group finder, so post them below if you remember what they said!

      The third Torghast bonus event will become available next week. It's called Unbridled Darkness and turns your screen pitch black for short periods of time.
      Essentially, your first Anima Power grants you a vial of darkness that you can activate. Using it turns your screen completely dark every 5 kills, and you cannot see your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage, healing, and movement speed are increased. The effect dissipates after you kill more than 5 enemies. It is important to note that you cannot enter or leave the darkness manually.
      This is how it looks like in the game when you don't see a thing. For that reason, Unbridled Darkness is also referred to as "Demon Hunter Simulator."

      Here are some spells associated with the event:
      Uncontrolled Darkness - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Rising - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Darkness Fading - Darkness envelops you every 5 kills, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 150% and your movement speed in increased by 50%. This effect is only removed when you kill 5 more enemies. You will NOT be able to enter or leave the darkness manually. Vial of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 15 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 90 sec cooldown. Flask of Unbridled Darkness - Release the darkness for 30 sec, causing you to be completely unable to view your surroundings. While under this effect, your damage and healing done is increased by 75% and your movement speed in increased by 30%. 60 sec cooldown. Certain Anima Powers empower Unbridled Darkness in various ways, and we list them all below.
      Unbridled Darkness Anima Powers
      Censer of Suffocating Shadows - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, release a wave of magic every 1 sec, inflicting [ 100% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage to enemies within 10 yds. Tollar's Dancing Garments - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you have 25% increased dodge chance. Form of Darkness - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, killing an enemy unit extends its duration by 5 sec. Unbridled Darkness is automatically removed from you while out of combat.

Sands of Desperation - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your time flows 30% faster. Oddly Intangible Key - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you take 30% less damage from area of effect attacks. Tollar's Willful Blinder - The duration of your Unbridled Darkness is increased by 5 sec. Huddled Carvings - Your damage done is increased by 100% if you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness. Harvester of Shadows - If you and an ally within 5 yds are both under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, you heal for 15% of your maximum health every 1 sec. Writhing Shadow-Tendrils - While under the effects of Unbridled Darkness, your attacks have a chance to cause a dark explosion and inflict [ 200% of Spell Power ] Shadow damage as well as blind enemies within 5 yds of your target for 6 sec. The bonus event does not offer any special rewards, and you can opt out of it by selecting an Anima Power unrelated to Unbridled Darkness at the beginning of each run.
