Sepulcher of the First Ones 9.2.5 Mythic DPS, Tank and Healer Log Rankings, Week 2: Affliction Returns

Recommended Posts


Week 2 of the new patch has passed and we have a very surprising change, as the long-time bottom of the barrel Warlock spec makes a pretty big comeback! There's plenty more changes to be had, and we're looking at the tanks and healers this time around as well, so let's dive into the Sepulcher.


95th Percentile

While Destruction still reigns supreme, its numbers have gone down slightly, but the bigger news is Survival dropping 2 spots, allowing Frost DKs and Demonology to move into 2nd and 3rd. Windwalkers remain strong after their big buff in the new patch, and Elemental is moving up 1 having traded places with Marksmsanship. It's not all good news for DKs though, as Unholy has dropped off the face of the planet, falling from its previous 8th spot all the way down into 16th! Retribution has taken that opportunity and moved up a big 4 spots into 9th, but the truly huge move is actually Affliction this week, as it jumped a staggering 14 spots, from all the way down in last place where it has been for an entire patch, up into 10th! This puts all 3 Warlock specs in the top 10, and the bottom is now reserved for Subtlety.

All Percentiles

Survival is holding on to 2nd in the generalist bracket, as the top 5 remains the same as last week, but we then see the big mover from the high percentiles move even higher here, as Affliction's comeback is not just a top-player fluke! The Warlock spec lands in 6th here, again from a dead-last position, making this an even bigger, 18-spot leap! Elemental and Marksmanship swap places here too, just the other way around, as the Hunter spec comes out on top. Outlaw and Havoc close out the top 10, with Unholy dropping fewer places here, only losing 3 spots. The vacant bottom of the barrel spot left by Affliction is occupied by Fire this time around, with Subtletly and Balance close by.

Tanks and Healers

There's been some changes for the tanks and healers as well, with Protection paladins taking the crown from Guardian in the tank DPS charts, compared to the previous patch, while the rest remain in the same spots.

Healers are stable as always, with the only change from 9.2.5 coming in the form of Discipline moving past Holy Palas.

Arms remains top dog in Heroic, as Outlaw moves past Demo into 2nd, and Frost DKs take back 4th from Survival. Enhancement, Shadow, Havoc and Balance stay together, with Marksmanship closing out the top 3 as Unholy falls here as well, but only the 1 spot.

      If you change your Loot Specialization, Zereth Mortis World and Daily Quests can offer different weapons as rewards.
      The game will offer you different rewards from World and Daily Quests on live servers when you switch your Loot Specialization. Here is a short video demonstration video:

      You can utilize Loot Specialization switching to collect transmogs or weapons for your off-spec.

      Note that this only works in Zereth Mortis and it takes approximately 10 seconds for the rewards to change.

      Update: it seems there's only half a mystery here, as I actually just didn't spot the Path of Frost icon, which led to the death. Apologies there. GY port is still a bug though!
      It seems someone's been pouring concrete around Stormwind's oceans, as JuliusLeNightmare faced off against some water and lost, only to be teleported to a very far away graveyard.
      Now while the teleport to the Tirisfal graveyard and the weird invasion of the zone near Stormwind is a well-known phenomenon/spatial anomaly, the transformation of the water into concrete is slightly weirder! Forsaken conspiracy/concrete pouring or weird bug? You decide!

      We've seen many WoW-related Minecraft builds over the years, and this is one of the better ones, as it takes the Alliance capital and transforms it extremely well. After 200 hours of work, @Yunatahel finally finished up and shared the project with the world, so let's take a look!
      Warning: potentially loud twitter video sound.
      Even the official WoW twitter account commented!

      After today's reveal of the Priest Dragonflight talent tree, Blizzard went into a little more detail for one particular Shadow talent, as it was a little unclear what it did. Here's the basic tooltip we got today, which will be updated.

      "Idol of Y'Shaarj: Shadowfiend causes you to gain a benefit based on your target's current emotional state."

      Idol of Y’Shaarj will receive a new tooltip as we get closer to Dragonflight. In the meantime though, here’s a breakdown of what it currently does:
      If your target is…
      Above 80% health? → Pride
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage while Shadowfiend is active. Enraged? → Anger
      Purges the enraged effect and increases your Haste while Shadowfiend is active. Stunned? → Despair
      You generate Insanity while Shadowfiend is active. Feared? → Fear
      You and your Shadowfiend deal increased damage and do not break fear effects while Shadowfiend is active. No conditions met? → Violence
      Duration of Shadowfiend is increased. The priority order is:
      Anger/Despair/Fear → Pride → Violence
      As with everything in the talent tree, these effects are subject to change. I hope this clears up some confusion. We’ll continue monitoring the community’s feedback and we look forward to sharing more Dragonflight details in the future!
