The eighth week of Shadowlands Season 4 ends with the weekly maintenance on Tuesday, and we're looking at how the Mythic+ tier list has shifted, based on the data from Subcreation.
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 news post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer 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 in Shadowlands Season 4 Week 8
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.

Starter Builds are preset talent builds created for players who prefer not to choose their own talents yet, but want a decent build that is suitable for most content.
For now, Starter Builds are only available to Evokers on the Dragonflight Beta, but all classes will have them when the new expansion launches.
How Do Starter Builds Work?
Switch to your desired Specialization. From the Loadout Tab dropdown, select Starter Build.
Dollie and Dot, our favorite alpacas from Vol'dun, are returning in Dragonflight!
The alpacas are well-known from Vol'dun, the zone native to the Vulpera. Back in Battle for Azeroth, Meerah was singing to Dolly and Dot while they were riding a caravan to the Temple of Akunda in Vol'dun.
In 2019, Blizzard even sold a Dottie plushie and to this day, you can buy Dottie in WoW as an in-game pet.
If you're a fan of Dolly and Dot, you'll be happy to hear both will be returning in Dragonflight! Samuraislider found them in the Dragon Isles.
The Great Vault in Dragonflight is located in Valdrakken. Find out the exact location and item level of rewards in Season 1!
