The Last Time Each Spec Has Been in a World First Kill

Recommended Posts

X9Jv7Nj.jpg
 

Here's a very interesting set of data, as Velinian took a look at when exactly each of the specs was present at ANY boss World First kill. Now this certainly isn't intended as an assessment of a spec's actual quality, but is an interesting and fun piece of trivia nonetheless (although perhaps not as "fun" for Survival Hunters).

So, most specs do have relatively recent kills, going back a year or two, with the exception of Guardian and Feral Druids, who haven't had the treat of a WF kill in around 4 and 5 years, respectively. And then there's Survival...

That's right, Survival hasn't been in a World first kill since Blackhand, back when it was still a ranged class - 6 and a half years ago. The list would probably look even more limited if we were to take a look at only endboss World First kills, so we might take a look at that in the near future as well.

Doesn't really shock me that the two outliers (feral and survival) are melee specs in classes that also have a ranged dps option that's usually very strong.

Adding insult to injury, back on Blackhand Survival still was a ranged spec. So melee Survival wasn't on WFs at all.

This is really not as bad as I thought it would be.

My thoughts exactly. Especially given how specific spec comps can be for top end raiding. Although I suspect it's this well balanced due to the author taking ALL World Firsts into consideration and not just the hard ones/last two bosses of a raid.

Yup. Last time we saw survival hunters, was the last expansion they were ranged. Miss you, my sweet black arrow & explosive shot procs.

Man, I had so much freaking fun raiding in Mists of Pandaria as Survival Hunter. All of the procs and explodey stuff was just pleasing. I was an orc and transmog'd my gun to be that literal cannon with the lit fuse you get as a green item from one of the earlier entry quests to the expansion.

 

I never touched melee survival when it came out, bless their hearts.

      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.
      Old 9.1.0 Painting

      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.
