Mythic+ Tier List for Shadowlands Season 4 (Week 5)

Recommended Posts


The fifth week of Shadowlands Season 4 ends on Tuesday with the weekly reset. Find out how the Mythic+ tier list has shifted, according to 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 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 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.

      Great Vault Location in Dragonflight
      While the system is not available for testing on the Beta, the Dragonflight weekly chest is located in Valdrakken, the new hub in Thaldraszus. The Great Vault can be found in the Bank area with the entrance at 55.52 57.23.

      Enter the bank and turn right. Here's another shot with coords and an exact map location.

      The Dragonflight weekly chest is themed after the dragonflights.

      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.
