Shadowlands Season 4 Fated Raid Mythic DPS Log Rankings, Week 4: Nathria

Recommended Posts


Castle Nathria was back this past week in the Fated schedule, with new affixes and some new log rankings! While the top dog remains at the top, there have been other changes we'll be checking out, including a very stable and very highly placed Retribution!

An important note before we begin: as the Fated raids are switching out each week, our comparisons to the previous weeks will be a little less relevant, but we'll still mention it for context - just keep in mind it won't be a direct comparison from week to week as it was before.


95th Percentile

While the Warlocks keep ahead of the pack, only Demonology is doing really well, pulling away from every single other spec massively, while Destruction is neck and neck with the following few. While gold and silver remain the same despite the raid swap, bronze sees a big change, as Elemental gets into its Nathria groove, jumping a huge 8 spots from its lackluster Sepulcher performance. Unholy also makes good use of the newly rotated raid, as is swoops past fellow DK Frost, as well as 3 other specs on its way up into 4th.

Said Frost remains solid through the raid swap, only losing that 1 spot to Unholy, and the big news of last week's rankings - Retribution - has proven not to be a fluke! The DPS Paladins are still doing extremely well, remaining in 6th and showcasing some real staying power. As the first raid of the Shadowlands returned, so did the absolute ruler of Mythic+ for the longest time, as Fire pushed through 7 other specs to land behind the Paladins, in 7th. Survival is one of the bigger losers of this week's switch, dropping 4. It's followed by Fury and Affliction with a very different story, both specs rising quite a bit - 3 for the Warrior and an insane 14 for the Warlock, as Affliction was dead last in the Sepulcher. Speaking of dead last, that honor belongs to Havoc this time around, as its joined by both Druid specs in the bottom 3.

All Percentiles

Elemental is doing even better in the generalist bracket, landing just underneath Demo and rising 8 spots from the Sepulcher. Unholy also excels here, replacing Frost in 3rd (apparently there must always be... a DK in 3rd?), with Survival only dropping 2 in 4th. Outlaw is still very much in the game in the generalist bracket, staying in the exact same spot as last week, despite its large fall in the upper percentiles. Fury is also doing much better here, gaining 5 spots and landing in 6th, just ahead of Destro which is down 3. Frost is doing worse than in the high percentiles, but better than last week as it rises 2, followed by Retribution and a surprising Shadow to close out the top 10. Feral lands in last place, joined by Arcane and Havoc.

The big numbers stat block, Heroic, re-confirms Demonology as the undisputed patch 9.2.7 and Season 4 king, with Outlaw definitely being the biggest winner after 9.2.5, even managing to snag 2nd place this past week. Shadow really likes Nathria it seems, as it rises 3 into 3rd here, followed by the now expected high placements of Survival and Unholy. Arms drops a little, Fire rises a lot, beast Mastery still shocks with a top 10 placement, as Retribution and Enhancement close out the 10 best specs. The bottom is reserved for yellow, as Outlaw seems to have hogged all the Rogue juice, leaving Assassination and Subtletly to die at the end of the list.

      You can purchase Tuskarr-themed backpacks in Azure Span in Dragonflight.
      A single item costs 400 Dragon Isles Supplies, a currency gained from assisting friendly factions of the Dragon Isles in their fight against the Primalists. You must reach a certain Renown rank to buy the backpacks. 
      The items can be purchased from Tiktukk (28.67 34.32) in Azure Span.

      Merithra, Ysera's daughter, has a new Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion and it turns out it's not her but Ysera depicted in the loading screen.
      In the Dragonflight loading screen, we see the four dragon aspects, namely Alexstrasza, Nozdormu, Kalecgos, and Ysera, not her daughter Merithra as I had initially anticipated.

      Merithra has a Night Elf Visage Form in the Dragonflight expansion, which does not line up with the Elf we see on the Dragonflight loading screen.

      You can read more about Ysera in Dragonflight here. Please note the post contains major spoilers that were not available for testing on the Beta because Blizzard most likely wants to hide portions of the story from players, just like they did with Calia Menethil.
      Back in August, we covered a mysterious empty area on the map of the Dragon Isles. For further reading on Ysera in Dragonflight, you may also want to read the following post.

      You can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts in Dragonflight even if you can't use that armor type, but this does seem to be currently limited to Dragonflight ensembles.
      MrGM discovered that you can unlock transmog ensembles for your alts on a single character. Let's say you main a Priest (Cloth Wearer), but would like a Dragonflight ensemble for your Death Knight (Plate Wearer). With the new change, your Priest can buy and learn the Death Knight ensemble (set appearance) and your Death Knight can wear it.
      Placeholder for tweet 1573326601122717699 However, the change does not appear to retroactively apply to older ensembles.

      Madam Goya and her Black Market Auction House return in Dragonflight with two new locations!
      The Waking Shores Black Market Auction House Location
      The first BMAH is easily accessible in the first Dragon Isles zone -- the Waking Shores. However, you can only browse auctions here, you cannot bid on items.

      Take the flight point to Obsidian Bulwark and head straight to Steelsage Gao located at 43.08 67.43. 

      Thaldraszus BMAH Location
      The second location is just outside Valdrakken, the main city in Thaldraszus. Go to Little Scales Daycare (10.57.51) and jump down as shown in the screenshot.

      You will now be just outside of the entrance to the Black Market Auction House in an area called The Petitioner's Concourse (34.66, 60.50).

      Inside, you'll see Madam Goya and Mister Chu, her loyal guardian. Here, you can also bid on auctions.
