First Look at Mythic+ Tier List in Shadowlands Season 4

Recommended Posts


Today, we're looking at the Mythic+ Tier List for Shadowlands Season 4 for the very first time.


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 it doesn't look at keys below +16 and untimed runs.

Therefore, the data presented in this post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer Petko.

Data Reliability

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 in Shadowlands Season 4 Week 1

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.

From keys ranging 16+ to a +28 that this data was collected; alot of misinterpet information to the 'casual' server populace [not MDI calibur] that will most likely shun players that pick the lesser favored specializations because it's not 'meta'.  For keys I rather bring the player not the class; specially if they can navigate the mechanics and affixes of the dungeon effeciently.

      Here are this week's Patch 10.2.7 development notes containing User Interface and Accessibility updates.
      Here are this week’s updates to the Dark Heart PTR:
      Several changes have been made to improve the experience of finding Mythic+ groups in Premade Group Finder: Advanced filters will now only appear for max level characters. Filter options will now save between sessions. Language filters will no longer appear for characters on North American realms. Declined applications will now save between refreshes. When previewing an ensemble or arsenal, the Dressing Room will now show a list of items included in the bundle. Each item can be viewed independently by clicking its name in the list. Solo Shuffle scoreboards will now show the results of the match (Victory, Draw, or Defeat) in the title.

      Game Director Ion Hazzikostas has confirmed that the Dracthyr race will have more class options in The War Within. However, this feature may not be ready in time for the expansion's launch.
      This update was highlighted in a tweet by MrGM, who shared insights from a London content creator interview about the Dracthyr.
      The plan is to introduce the ability for Dracthyr to play as other classes in War Within. Emphasis on playing in Visage form. Required animations for other classes are actively being worked on. The implementation is unlikely to happen at launch, but targeted for early in the expansion cycle. Placeholder for tweet 1780748422066188399
