We're taking a closer look at the Mythic+ Tier List for the fifth week of Dragonflight Season 2!
The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.
For the reasons mentioned above, the data presented here will always differ from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by Petko.
The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you'd like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.
How the Data is Calculated
The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.
The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site's FAQ.
Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale. They're just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.
Mythic+ Tier List for Dragonflight Season 2 Week 5
The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci which stands for the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it's not occupied by any specialization.
The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Tyrannical, Volcanic, Sanguine.
The images from Subcreation are currently experiencing some issues as classes are listed in the incorrect order, but you will find the correct order in text format.

Here's what we know about the Secrets of Azeroth holiday coming in Patch 10.1.5.
Please note this article was written on June 8 during Patch 10.1.5 testing. Therefore, it may contain incomplete or otherwise outdated information.
Secrets of Azeroth is a new holiday currently slated for August 30th - September 13th.
We currently do not know much about it, but thanks to datamining, we were able to get at least some information about the event and rewards. The holiday seems to revolve around finding buried satchels in dirt mounds.

Quantum items are a new type of cosmetics coming in Patch 10.1.5 that teach you appearances from the past, including weapons and armor.
The latest Patch 10.1.5 Build 49908 adds quantum items. While we don't know exactly how they will work, the tied spells indicate they will teach you item appearances from the past. Maybe this is Blizzard's new way of bringing back removed items like the ones from Zul'Gurub or Naxxramas in Patch 10.1.5 and instead of having X items you must collect, there will be just 1 sort of "token" with many appearances tied to it.
The following Quantum items have been added so far:
Quantum Wand Quantum Staff Quantum Warglaives Quantum Sword Quantum Polearm Quantum Shield Quantum Mace Quantum Shoulders Quantum Headpiece Quantum Knuckles Quantum Legs Quantum Knife Quantum Focus Quantum Greathammer Quantum Greatsword Quantum Gloves Quantum Bow Quantum Crossbow Quantum Firearm Quantum Chestpiece Quantum Axe
A large batch has arrived and features many Aberrus changes, from Sarkareth to Echo, and Zskarn as well. There's also an improvement for the Cobalt Shalewing drop rate, a fix for Rextroy's latest craziness and more.

Paladin Retribution Fixed an issue causing the Indomitable Justice Azerite trait to sometimes provide an unintended speed bonus. Dungeons and Raids
Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn Developers’ notes: These changes are directed at reducing the burden on tanks in smaller groups where Shrapnel Bomb was more difficult to handle with more limited amounts of utility from the group. [With June 6 resets] Zskarn health reduced by 10% for small group sizes on Normal and Heroic difficulties. [With June 6 resets] Shrapnel Bomb initial damage and DOT damage reduced by 50% on Normal and Heroic difficulties. [With June 6 resets] Searing Claws damage reduced by 25% on Normal and Heroic difficulties. [With June 6 resets] Unstable Embers damage reduced by 30% on Heroic difficulty. Echo of Neltharion Calamitous Strike’s debuff duration reduced from 40 seconds to 37 seconds on all difficulties. This is done to remove a problematic overlap in phase one of the encounter. Calamitous Strike’s debuff will now be removed when the encounter enters intermission on all difficulties. Fixed an issue where Neltharion immediately melee his target after casting Calamitous Strike on all difficulties. Added a slight delay before the same player can trigger an additional stack of Shatter after destroying Twisted Earth on all difficulties. Volcanic Heart’s radius reduced from 25 yards to 20 yards on Mythic difficulty. Scalecommander Sarkareth Developers’ note: A series of changes have been made to ease up a bit on the difficulty of this encounter on lower player size raids. Each of these changes are for non-Mythic difficulties only and scale back as raid size increases, evening out to about no changes for the 30 player raid. [With June 6 resets] Health of Sarkareth and Null Glimmers reduced by 6% in 10 player raids. [With June 6 resets] Duration of Astral Flare buff increased from 23 seconds to 30 seconds in 10 player raids. [With June 6 resets] Oblivion damage per tick reduced by 50% in 10 player raids. [With June 6 resets] Void Surge damage per tick reduced by 40% in 10 player raids. [With June 6 resets] Dread raid wide damage reduced by 25% in 10 player raids.
