Castle Nathria 9.0.5 DPS Log Rankings and Analysis, Week 11: Boss Only Charts

Recommended Posts


We're looking at the 11th week of 9.0.5 raiding today, as Castle Nathria continues to be one of the longer raid tiers in WoW, and will be sticking around for quite a while still. This week we see Demonology rise up as Windwalkers fall, as our guide writer takes a look at one of the more stable and best performing specs in the raid, Elemental and we take a look at the boss only damage charts as well.

Mythic Rankings

Starting with the top players as we always do, Demonology has risen 4 spots into 8th place, as only Fire and Arcane had any changes before that, as they swapped places for the No. 4 and 5 slots. Meanwhile, Windwalkers dropped a solid chunk, 4 spots into 13th, as Retribution, Assassination, Fury and the aforementioned Demo move past it

In the more generalist rankings, Unholy has passed Elemental by a little, as Demonology also rose 4 spots, into 10th here.

Elemental Shaman by Stormy:


Now that the state of class balance 9.0.5 is well understood, Elemental Shaman has firmly cemented its place as a top contender for ranged DPS spots at any level of play. A lot of people have given the spec a try and did not find it wanting to farm/keep progressing in Castle Nathria.

Currently 9.1 is not looking to bring any notable change to the spec, especially since the new legendaries are looking abysmal. Considering its current output, mobility and versatility, I would expect Elemental to have a legitimate role to play in the race to World First, as it should be a very strong spec on quite a few bosses in the next raid. That being said, Elemental still lacks the game-changing utility/defensive abilities some other specs have, and is outmatched by other specs in several damage scenarios. For any guild that is not competing for World First however, having multiple Elemental Shamans is definitely not the silly move it used to be.

Boss Damage Only

This week we're also taking a look at the boss-specific damage (and you can read about its relevance here) , this time on a 2-week basis as we don't check in with them every week. These charts don't change that much, but Demo also jumped a spot here to snag 4th from Feral, and Frost Mage also climbed 2 spots, surpassing both DK specs. Enhancement also rose 3 spots, coming in right after its fellow Shaman spec in the 95th percentile.

Heroic Rankings, Overall Damage

Feral keeps it's very solid 8th spot in Heroic, as Elemental jumps a spot and the rest remains pretty stable in the much winder range of players-hosting Heroic difficulty.

      Another crazy fast time for Gitoff in the never-ending Torghast layer 12 speed runs! We've seen a flawless layer 12 in under 4 minutes and a non-flawless one in under 3, but now Gitoff has beaten their own non-flawless record by over a minute, finishing in 1:50!! Huge congrats and now it is really becoming questionable whether it's even doable faster!

      In their continued effort to remove inappropriate references from the game, Blizzard desexualized two paintings in this week's Patch 9.1.5 Build 40196.
      The first in-game painting of a woman was completely replaced with a fruit painting. We compare both paintings below.

      New 9.1.5 Painting

      The second painting is an update that adds more armor and fidelity.
      Old 9.1.0 Painting

      New 9.1.5 Painting

      Blizzard continues to remove inappropriate references from the game. In Patch 9.1.5 alone, they renamed multiple achievements, Mac'Aree to Eredath, and more.
