Dragonflight Pre-Patch DPS, Tank and Healer Log Rankings, Week 1

Recommended Posts

Update: you can now check out the week 2 log rankings as well, after the class tuning change almost everything.

We're back to the Sepulcher of the First Ones with a more proper look at the DPS and HPS numbers today, and it seems the day 1 stats weren't quite as crazy and preliminary as usual. The pre-patch madness is in full effect as specs have lost their tier set bonuses, gained the new talent system and still have access to their Covenant abilities and legendaries, making things really messy and all over the place. Luckily for us, this makes for some very interesting rankings! You can also check out our class guides to get a better idea of the craziness that is the pre-patch.

Mythic

95th Percentile

We have a very colorful top 5 in this new chaotic pre-patch age, with no repeat classes! We are all still ruled by our Warlock overlords, however, with Affliction taking the reins over from Demonology, who took them over from Destruction before that, and, well, Affliction before that. It's been a very purple couple of patches indeed. After that we see even more changes, as the once great Windwalkers return to their lofty heights, but at the end of the top 3 we see a spec that hasn't had anything very lofty for a LONG time, as Retribution finds its way up after a slow climb up into the top 10 during 9.2.7. Balance returns after a long stint down in the middle, and while it's not quite back to its Nathria glory days, it's still doing very well. Another very unexpected face finds us at No.5, as Enhancement takes over the Shaman mantle and after doing well in Heroic for quite a while now, the stormy strikers have found their way to the top here as well! Frost DK is one of the rare specs that's held on to a top 10 position over this transition, as Fire isn't riding quite as high as expected, and Arms is representing Warriors in the upper half here. We have two relatively unexpected faces in the final two top 10 slots, as we see the first class repeats, with Arcane and Beast Mastery taking up residence at 9 and 10. Havoc managed to dig itself out of the hole it was in during the last pach, as Unholy dropped quite a bit, and we see our first Rogue spec all the way down here at 13. The very bottom is reserved for irony/justice(?), as the undisputed ruler of the past months is sitting at the very bottom, joined by Subtletly and Shadow.

And here's our Warlock guide writer Motoko explaining why we have yet another purple overlord:

The pre-patch is a curious, relatively small timeframe where two expansion's systems usually overlap to a various degree, and 10.0 is no exception. With the new talent system and the ability to still run covenants with legendaries, Affliction is yet again at the top. On one side there is the Shadowlands Necrolords package, centered around Decimating Bolt Decimating Bolt and increasing the damage of Shadowbolt Shadowbolt/Drain Soul Drain Soul. On the other there is the new Dragonflight talent and spell system, with a baseline buffed Drain Soul/Shadowbolt, which also benefits from multiple nodes that passively increase the damage even further. As a result, Affliction has incredible single target damage coming from Drain Soul, especially during execute, while also being able to sport passive cleave options such as Soul Flame Soul Flame. There was also a hotfix in the second part of the week that made Decimating Bolt Decimating Bolt and Shard of Annihilation Shard of Annihilation correctly increase the damage of just one Drain Soul Drain Soul, instead of the multiples it did before, so we might see the damage drop down a little next week.

All Percentiles

The top remain the same in the generalist bracket, but Enhancement is really pushing the envelope here as it takes over 3rd. Frost DK is hanging on even better, not losing much ground at all since the pre-patch, as Fire breathes down its neck. Retribution isn't quite as hot as in the top percentiles, but it's still sitting in a respectable 6th place, with Arms and Havoc being quite bit warmer than in the top in 7th.

Tanks and Healers

Some Guardian Druids are still pulling some crazy shenanigans and doing 45K DPS, almost double than the rest of the specs, pushing the spec to the top and then some. They're using the Fated Chaotic Mote ability Fated Infusion: Chaotic Essence Fated Infusion: Chaotic Essence along with Cache of Acquired Treasures Cache of Acquired Treasures, Gavel of the First Arbiter Gavel of the First Arbiter and mainly Ravenous Frenzy Ravenous Frenzy, which is getting very high stacks due to the new talents and the legendary stacking, creating a whole lot of haste and crit. Demon Hunters and Brewmasters are doing well down in the non insane side of the damage meters, as Paladinds, DKs and especially Warriors aren't doing quite as well.

Holy seems to be the healer of the hour and is poised to stay on top for the pre-patch, but Mistweavers aren't that far behind either. The top 4 healers are actually pretty close together, with only Shamans and Paladins dropping off a little in the HPS battle.

Heroic DPS

Enhancement has finally made it to the top of Heroic, after lingering near it for the entirety of 9.2.7, and now the pre-patch has empowered it to claim the throne! It's really good (and unusual) to see a non purple-spec at the top for once, but it's not like Affliction is far behind and we're sure to see it back in the No.1 spot next week, but hey, let's enjoy this purple Warlock-free top while we can! Fire is doing better than on Mythic here, and the rest of the top is pretty much the same as in the higher difficulty just re-arranged a little. The bottom is different, however, as Subtletly claims the dead-last spot, but we see Elemental and Survival down there with it, both specs having been pretty solid in the last patch.

Sadly it isn't, it's just strong due to current gear and combinations across covenants
