Day 1 Heroic Sepulcher of the First Ones DPS Log Rankings

Recommended Posts


The new raid has been out since Tuesday, so calling this a day 1 ranking might not be exactly correct, but we wanted to wait until the EU guilds also got a chance to try the raid, so now we're looking back at the logs so far (so technically it's day 2.5). We'll be focusing on Heroic Sepulcher for quite a while, with later peeks into Mythic as more and more guilds clear more and more of the raid.

NOTE: These are extremely preliminary logs as it's only been 2 and a half days for US guilds and 1 and a half for EU, so these are more of an interesting overview to see where things MIGHT be, especially with Heroic bosses being very different from Mythic. This is without even mentioning the double legendaries coming in 2 weeks, or the the massive lack of proper tier set bonuses.


95th Percentile

We'll be comparing the rankings to the Mythic ones from the 9.2 Sanctum, which isn't really a great comparison, but it's all we got for now. The patch did change a lot, but the top 3 colors are the same at least, as Subtletly switches out with Outlaw on the very top! Fury and Arms actually keep their previous spots on 2 and 3, while Outlaw finds itself 3 spots down in 4th. Enhancement is the big revelation here as it moved up around 10 places when 9.2 hit in the Sanctum, and now it's moving another 10 to end up in 5th place! That's a TWENTY spot move since 9.1.5, as one of the most neglected and poorest performing specs throughout Shadowlands seems to be back and then some. Frost DKs come in at 6, also moving up a huge 7 spots, as Windwalkers drop 3 to 7th. Beast Mastery is another brand new face to not only the top 10, but also the upper half of the rankings in general, followed by Fire and yet another fresh face, as Feral ends up just outside the top 10.

Unfortunately for Destruction, the patch didn't change much as it finds itself on the bottom, joined by former No.1 Balance, as Elemental is discarded for now after having risen to the top in 9.1.5, now replaced by its fellow Shaman spec (maybe they're like Highlanders?). Other big drops include Affliction, Havoc, Arcane and Frost, but these are very preliminary, so we'll get a better look next week.

All Percentiles

The generalist bracket is following suit with the top ones, with some differences. Outlaw didn't fall as hard here, as it keeps Fury at bay, who is also defeated by its fellow Warrior spec, with Arms taking 2nd place. Beast Mastery does better here as well, along with Feral which makes the top 10, and Havoc which doesn't fall quite as much as in the top percentiles. The bottom looks pretty much the same.

And that's it for "day 1", as we'll get into more stats next week with the full data from the very first week of the Sepulcher of the First ones! As always, if you want even more info on a spec, you can check out our class guides here, for a DPS tier list you can go here, or for even more data, head on over to Warcraft Logs.

      Content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      Blizzard clearly stated that guilds will remain single-faction in Patch 9.2.5 in a blue post about cross-faction instances.
      Guilds will remain single-faction, and random matchmade activities like Heroic dungeons, Skirmishes, or Random Battlegrounds will all remain same-faction (both because there is less faction-driven pressure around random groups, and to avoid compromising the opt-in nature of the feature by randomly placing a queuing orc in a group with a night elf). However, content creator MrGM found a glitch that allowed him to break the system and create a cross-faction guild on the Patch 9.2.5 PTR.
      The group went with a guild charter into Torghast and created a guild there. Probably any cross-faction content would work to replicate the bug. Players of the opposite faction were able to sign the guild charter it and when the guild was created, each player could invite players from their faction into the guild, meaning Alliance players could invite other Alliance players to join and vice-versa.

      We have another sign of just how close we are to 9.2.5 launching, as Martin Benjamins, a well known dataminer and Community Council member, has spotted that the patch has moved to the production hardware and software side of the PTR! With yesterday's build being labeled as a release candidate and the fact that the move to this side of the PTR usually marks 1 week before the actual launch, could we be seeing the patch as soon as next week?
      The big argument against this is we still haven't heard any official announcements from Blizzard on the release date, but usually with patches they do so with the Season ending soon posts, and considering Season 3 is NOT ending when patch 9.2.5 launches, this might be less of an issue. Official patch date announcements tend to come right around the first release candidate appearing so let's see if we hear anything official soon, but until then, there's a solid likelihood of 9.2.5 arriving a lot sooner than expected!

      Fishbones06 is back with more glyph options, this time some very angry and very polearm-y Warriors, and we paired that with one of their earlier works with blacksmith-themed elemental glyphs as well!
      Starting with the Warriors, we have some Alliance/Horde themed ones, with a banner linked to Rallying Cry and polearm + shield combo (which is a bit more of a transmog) on the Alliance side, and all the anger linked to Dragon Roar for Horde. (The image is animated, just click on it if it doesn't auto-start.)
      Then there's an older concept, with some blacksmith-themed Shaman elementals:

      And finally, here are some comments from the glyph-maker:
      Exactly, I started making them because if you go to any wow forum, the community has list and list of ideas for Glyphs, but no visual representation.
      The thrust animation and the ready idle stance is real. The only thing I changed was the arm holding the polearm.
      I agree, the artist truly are the heroes. I'm just playing and changing the assets they've provided. On classes I dont play much, I rely on class forums on what they would want to see. My goal for this, is to just bring visual representation to these ideas and to push blizzard into consider them and to see the excitement from the community for something like this.

      Content creator MGM found out during Patch 9.2.5 testing that cross-faction queue works for Timewalking raids, which is a neat feature!
      Cross-faction grouping comes with a few limitations; you must be Battle.net Friends with the person you're inviting or you both need to be members of the same cross-faction community. So far, we thought the feature was limited to Mythic+, raids, and Legacy raids.
      It turns out you can queue up for Timewalking raids cross-faction as well. You can learn more about cross-faction play in our overview.

      We're looking at some interesting Genn Greymane audio files from Patch 9.2.5. This post contains spoilers.
      The audio files play during the "Eyes of the Wolf" quest when Greymane sends you to meet Calia Menethil in Brill and spy on the Forsaken as they're gathering in Tirisfal Glades for an unknown purpose.
      Genn Greymane: You must don a disguise and travel deep into enemy territory. Do not let down your guard.
      Genn Greymane: In life, Calia Menethil endured more than her share of sorrow. She may not be a typical undead, but the Forsaken are not to be trusted. 
      Placeholder for tweet 1528767413696733184 Sylvanas no longer unites the Forsaken and your goal is to find out what they are up to. Genn also says "Calia is no typical undead". Do you think Genn will try to hunt her down or attack the Forsaken at their gathering?
      I wouldn't be surprised if he secretly planned a coup. After all, it was Sylvanas who killed his son Liam Greymane.
      Most of the Patch 9.2.5 content remains encrypted, so we don't know exactly what will transpire until the patch hits live servers.
