Castle Nathria 9.0.5 DPS Log Rankings and Analysis, Week 10: The Return of the (Boom)King

Recommended Posts

Here we are looking back at week 9 of patch 9.0.5 in Castle Nathria, as the very top of the rankings has been changing quite a bit recently, with a new No.1 this week. The boomkins seem to have taken their lack of domination seriously and have reclaimed their throne from Shadow, so our guide writer will be taking a look as well.

Mythic Rankings

In raiding's high-end we have the return of the feathered kings, with boomkins getting back in gear after Shadow's brief stint in the throne. Arcane and Fire also flipped, as the more volatile spec is now actually somewhat stable in the top rankings at least, sitting just outside the top 3, and the third Mage spec had the biggest movement of them all this week, rising 5 spots into 8th. The middle of the pack had some rearranging happen as well, but nothing major, with Fury and Demonology going up and Retribution and Unholy down.

As usual, the all percentiles bracket has a lot less movement, but did the 7-9 spots shuffle around, as the two DK specs swap and Fury goes down one, while Arcane also gained some ground, but not nearly as much, just entering the top 10. The bottom 5 specs seem to be pretty set here, as they haven't changed in quite a bit.

Balance Druid by Bora:

Quote

Balance druid has performed exceptionally well in Castle Nathria since the very beginning. From a progression standpoint, Convoke the Spirits Convoke the Spirits was perfect for that type of raiding and always a good all around spell. It shined on single target fights, but the small burst windows were great for fights like Sludgefist or killing adds on p2 sire.

While Balance Druid is undoubtedly a strong single target class allowing it to have a strong showing on fights like Shriek, Xy'mox, and Inerva, encounters like Council and Stone Legion Generals allow for plenty of padding that only multi-dot classes can take advantage of. Those can skew the data heavily in favor of our class which is why they have been targeted with nerfs in the most recent 9.1 PTR patch notes.


Heroic Rankings, Overall Damage

Fire mage came out very strong this week in Heroic, moving into 2nd, while Feral continues its rise and is now in 8th!

Including "Damage to Boss" graphs would really help cleaning up the padding logs

We do include them every other week, they just very rarely change so it would be a little filler-y. You can always check out last week's entry and find them there:

      We have some extremely fast Castle Nathria Mythic clears coming out of the Raid Masters speedrun tournament that's being held over the weekend, with the current fastest clear coming in at only 1 hour and 15 minutes!
      The event's finals are coming up today at 20:00 CEST, but the World record was set back during the qualifiers, as xD just burned through and took down all the bosses:

      There may be more records coming our way today as Pieces, xD, Sloth, SPEL, endeavør, Pescorus, Pepelands, Intrepid Fox Imminent and FlashPoint KTB compete for the $10,000 prize pool! Not all the top guild participated in the event, as most notably Complexity-Limit and Echo were a little too busy with the Race to World First preparations, as the big Sanctum of Domination progress race is coming on July 14th!
      And here's the tournament's trailer to see us out:

      Carbot has been a very reliable source of some truly very funny videos on pretty much everything Blizzard-related, with his unique style and a clear reverence and knowledge of the content parodied. He even made Blizzard a 30th anniversary video for this year's BlizzConline!

      Well, today we have a very different video on our hands, as he tries to show the evolution of WoW throughout the ages, at least from his perspective. It's... a painful one to watch, and in my opinion a little too pessimistic, but you can't deny the talent at play here as it will almost certainly tug at your heartstrings:
      While there definitely have been many changes to WoW over the years, and even the ones depicted towards the end of the video aren't that far from the truth, the nostalgic and pretty emotional feelings I get from the video are more about the players leaving, which I would argue is more a factor of, well, time. As old-school, original players (or ones from any period in the game really) change, grow and evolve, it's natural they will move away from the game and come back for shorter stints and so on, which isn't necessarily a factor of the game's state, and so I can't really agree with the ending section there (although I'm not exactly a fan of what's been happening with the monetization aspects either). The fanbase definitely isn't exactly at its most fan-like at the moment, but hopefully that can change, and we can stem the tide of toxicity that's been pretty heavily pushing in on WoW on all fronts.
      As for Carbot's video specifically, while I may not agree with the general message, this departure from his normal videos really is a great one, and you have to respect when funny, cartoony figures can pack such a major emotional punch, as regardless of how you may feel about WoW, you will most likely have felt something watching that video.
      The video also created a very large redit thread, with players expressing their reaction to it, which you can check out here.

      3 encrypted Patch 9.1 cinematics are currently present in the game files. These usually contain spoilers, so we will need to wait until June 29 to watch them.
      All combined, the cinematics have 7.46 minutes.
      interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_950and952_1920.avi is 2 minutes and 25 seconds long and has 69.09 MB. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_951_1920.avi is 3 minutes and 7 seconds long and has 88.32 MBs. interface/cinematics/shadowlands_910_953_1920.avi has 1 minute and 56 seconds and 54.67 MBs. There are also lower-resolution versions of the same cinematics present in the game files (1080p / 640p). What do you hope to see there?
