Sepulcher of the First Ones Heroic DPS Log Rankings, Week 6: Red and Green at the Top

Recommended Posts


The post-double legendary situation is still settling in as we have a brand new No.1, and it's one that hasn't been up there in a LONG time, with Demonology seeing a solid drop in all brackets. We see a whole lot of movement with big leaps and some new faces in the top 10, including some Paladin action, so let's take a look at the Heroic rankings, some specific boss standings, and more!


95th Percentile

The high percentiles have a new spec on top as Frost DKs finally fight through to their frozen throne! Frost has been up there ever since 9.2 and has only gotten stronger when double legendaries arrived, but it's now finally time to look down on every other spec, at least for this week. Survival also moved up as it also passed Demonology, but all top 3 specs are very close together so we'll be seeing some frequent switch-ups in the coming weeks. In another Hunter bump we see Marksmanship pass by Destruction, with Balance and Enhancement being the only two top 10 specs to hold their position this week. Shadow has broken the Shaman bond and pushed Elemental down one, as we have a new face at the end of the top 10, with some much welcomed pink coming in, as Retribution almost wins the most improved prize this week, moving up 7! Fire is the actual most improved spec as it moves out of the gutter, rising a very impressive 13 spots into 11th, leaving Outlaw at the very bottom.

All Percentiles

We have a different but also new No.1 in the generalist bracket, as Survival is the one to take Demonology's throne here, with Frost DKs holding on to No.2. Demo drops a lot lower here with Enhancement making a big break (up 3) to round out the top 3, and Balance following it along. Retribution actually reprises it's No.10 role here as well, showing that it's not just a high percentile anomaly, so hopefully we'll be seeing more of it in the coming weeks! Fire also reprises its move out of the gutter here, rising 10 spots into 14th and leaving Affliction down in the dumps.

Specific Bosses

Anduin Wrynn

Anduin's top looks pretty similar to the overall rankings, with Enhancement being the big outlier here, down near the bottom, but it makes it all up on the Jailer.

Rygelon is very much a throwback to Nathria as Balance reigns supreme, and Fire is getting quite the boost to its overall rating here as well.

The Jailer

Good ol' Zovaal is Enhancement heaven, but he's also giving Subtletly that much needed boost this week, as Havoc's good performance on the final boss allowed it to stay in the overall top 10.

While Mythic is still unstable, with only a few guilds even finishing the Sepulcher (17 at the moment), it is the most consistent out of the big 3 we're looking at week over week, with Demonology staying on top and Destruction joining it. Elemental moved up into 3rd and Frost DKs rose here as well, with Subtlety's 2 spot jump giving hope to Rogues.

Could someone give an explanation to why Outlaw and Affliction seem to be always bottom this tier? Thanks.

I'm not an expert Outlaw player, I could have some missing information so hopefully other people will chime in. It's because other specs do what outlaw does but are more consistent and easier to play. Outlaw is primarily for its utility, cleave, and simple AOE rotation. However if you're going to go for melee AOE most people will play another class completely that isn't RNG dependent.
It's still viable, but most players are thinking if you play rogue, you want to focus on single target which sub has more consistent damage (even though outside of it's cooldowns I dont find it very fun to play).

Because of this most players will see the high end players doing really well, and they gravitate toward that since there's better guides and work put in to improving it. This means the more skilled and geared players are making that number even higher. So the only players that are sticking with outlaw are going to be more casual or ones who aren't competing. 

TL:DR; It's not that they're bad, its just the other specs are so good that its not worth it to competitive players to play outlaw or affliction. That makes even more people play those specs because they're doing so well.

      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.
