The Most Popular DPS for Mythic+ in Patch 9.1.5 (Week #4)

Recommended Posts


The fourth week of Patch 9.1.5 arrived on live servers and we looked at the most popular DPS for Mythic+.

DATA RELIABILITY: The data we use in this post is from benched.me. Reddit user OtherwiseUniversity7 plotted all keys available from the Blizzard API (excluding the CN region) on a single ridge plot to gather the data.

Total Runs Recorded

Here are all the runs recorded since Mythic Season 2 started. We use the data further to determine the most popular ranged and melee DPS specializations.

Most Popular Melee DPS for Mythic+

The most popular melee DPS for Mythic+ is Havoc Demon Hunter with almost 3 million runs completed in Season 2 so far. We have Windwalker Monk in second place with 1.8 million runs, and Fury Warrior is third (1.66 million runs). The least popular melee DPS specializations are Survival Hunter and Feral Druid.

  1. Havoc Demon Hunter - 2,971,787 runs
  2. Windwalker Monk - 1,807,764 runs
  3. Fury Warrior - 1,668,535 runs
  4. Arms Warrior - 1,480,416 runs
  5. Outlaw Rogue - 1,026,274 runs
  6. Retribution Paladin - 943,578 runs
  7. Unholy Death Knight - 926,534 runs
  8. Subtlety Rogue - 783,920 runs
  9. Enhancement Shaman - 603,743 runs
  10. Assassination Rogue - 504,772 runs
  11. Frost Death Knight - 478,813 runs
  12. Feral Druid - 326,846 runs
  13. Survival Hunter - 324,903 runs

Detailed Look at Spec Performance

The meta starts kicking in once rewards are no longer relevant. In other words, when you pass the level needed for the Great Vault reward. That's where casuals stop playing, and dedicated pushers (and the metaclasses they play) take over the population.

Certain non-meta specializations stay stable (or even gain share) in mid-range keys.

The least popular ranged DPS specialization is Demonology Warlock with 429K runs.

      A preview of the new Darkmoon Faire dance game coming in Patch 9.2.
      Darkmoon Faire has been updated with a dance game in Eternity's End. The event takes place in the South Pavilion and there are 3 difficulties available (Normal, Heroic, and Master). Don't forget to stock up on Darkmoon Game Tokens before talking to Dance Master Simon Sezdans.

      Blizzard is reworking the Warlock Tier Set helm coming in Patch 9.2 and the latest update on the PTR, its model has been temporarily changed to a cube!
      Here's the Warlock Tier set before the change. Blizzard confirmed they're working on updating the helm's appearance, following some negative feedback.

      In 9.2 Build 41257, the old model has been removed and replaced with a placeholder cube.

      Hopefully, we'll see the new headpiece in the next update!

      Once you complete the Zereth Mortis intro on your main character, a skip becomes available on alts, but it hasn't been confirmed if it will be enabled on Patch 9.2 launch, or at a later time.
      The Zereth Mortis skip can be activated on alts when the character is on the "Call of the Primus" quest that automatically pops up in your quest log when you log into the game for the first time after Eternity's End goes live.
      On your alternate character, talk to Tal-Inara in the Enclave while you're on the "Call of the Primus" quest. Instead of going to the Arbiter, choose the new skip option that allows you to skip directly to the end of the Zereth Mortis intro questline.

      We don't know yet if the skip option will ship with Patch 9.2 or later.

      Not the wildest but also not the most stable week here in the 5th version of 9.1.5 Sanctum, as we see a lot of movement in the generalist bracket, Havoc solidifying itself as a top 5 spec in both and Rogue specs fighting for dominance in the yellow world! Let's take a look.
      Mythic DPS Rankings
      95th Percentile
      We have a very stable week this time around, as the top 4 is locked in and Havoc is keeping it's No.3 spot. Outlaw makes it into the top 5, jumping 3 spots and pushing Arms, Subtlety and Elemental, all of whom shuffled their positions around from last week as well, with Elemental being the biggest loser with its 3 drop. Assassination rose 4 spots, so all three Rogue specs are doing well this time around, gaining a combined total of 7 spots. Demonology and Frost DKs retained their highly improved positions from last week, while Affliction dropped a bunch, moving under the three bunched up Mage specs into 15th.

      95th percentile Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.
      All Percentiles
      We have a lot of changes in the generalist bracket, as Havoc is making its presence known a week after it did in the high percentiles, taking the same 4th spot as above! Assassination pushes through into 3rd, taking Outlaw's top Rogue position, as Subtlety also moves past it into 5th and Outlaw drops 5 into 8th. The other specs remain mostly the same, adjusting for the big movers at the top, with Demo moving up 1 past Elemental and Affliction seeing a big 5-spot drop here as well.

      All percentiles Mythic data by Warcraft Logs.

      Heroic DPS Rankings
      Only some small movement in heroic this week, as is customary, with Shadow overtaking Arcane for 4th and Arms passing Subtlety in 6th.
