Dragonflight Pre-Patch DPS Log Rankings, Week 3

Recommended Posts

Clipboard02.jpg
 

Week 3 of the Fated Sepulcher pre-patch has come and gone, and the class tuning is really taking effect, solidifying the top 2 specs that will most likely stay up there until the expansion launches, and even breaking the 100K DPS mark. We do have some more class tuning arriving this week which might shake things up but the top specs are pretty safe, unless the Evoker just comes in and takes over the place.

Mythic

95th Percentile

The huge disparity between the top 2 and everyone else has only grown in week 3 of the Dragonflight pre-patch, as Affliction and Balance are having an AoE Chaotic Essence Chaotic Essence-fueled party and no one else was invited. This seems to be the way of the world for the rest of the pre-patch, as this week's phase 2 patch notes and class tuning do not address either Affliction or Balance, but since their insane power is mostly Fated affix based, maybe that's ok as well.

In the rest of the world/chart, we have Beast Mastery pushing through into the top 3 and Unholy reclaiming the top DK honors in 4th, while Windwalker recovers a little from its nerf and moves 1 up. Despite dropping 2 this week, Frost DK is still the most stable spec throughout these last 2 patches, as Arcane is very much unstable (as it tends to be) and drops 4 spaces to 7th. In case 1 infinitely dominant Warlock spec wasn't enough for you, we have Demonology rising back up after its giant fall from grace with this patch, claiming 6 spots to land in 8th, as Fire and Retribution close out the top 10. At least one Hunter made it out of the bottom of the barrel, as Survival leaves Marksmanship down there to die (at least until Dragonflight), with Subtletly and the massively nerfed Enhancement making it company.

All Percentiles

While Affliction is dominating the high percentiles, it seems the averaged stats see the throne go to Balance instead! Frost DKs are doing better than in the top percentiles here, only dropping 1 spot into 4th, as Outlaw wins the most improved trophy in the top 10, rising 4 spots into 5th. Unholy recovered after its big drop here this week as well, while Arms remains solid in 8th. Havoc is having a significantly rougher week than the rest, as it drops 3 spots and almost out of the top 10, with Fire taking Retribution out of the final spot. Arcane's rough week continues here as well, as it dropped even further - 7 spots down into 11th.

Heroic DPS

Uncharacteristically, Heroic is looking a lot like Mythic this week, but only for the first 2 spots, as we immediately see a big difference in third, as Arms holds strong. Fire is also doing a lot better here than o the maximum difficulty, and Windwalker is doing a little worse.

      The Dragonflight pre-patch event ends later today with the release of Dragonflight. Therefore, don't forget to spend all your earned Primeval Essences before then!
      Primeval Essence, the Dragonflight pre-patch event currency, can be turned in for item level 252 gear at Level 60. When the new expansion hits, the event will be gone, and the vendors will most likely despawn, leaving you with worthless Primeval Essence in your inventory.

      The currency is BoA, and you can send it to alts. Note that the alt must be Level 60 to buy gear. Low-level characters cannot purchase it.
      Check out our Primal Storms guide before the event's gone for good.

      It can be difficult to prioritize your daily and weekly goals whenever a new expansion releases. With the launch of Dragonflight, we've compiled a to-do list that you may want to check out!
      Content Not Available Before Next Week's Maintenance
      Before we dive into it, it is important to point out that the vast majority of content will not be available until next week's reset (November 29) to allow players to focus on leveling at their own pace. The following content will not be available until next week:
      Epic-quality Dragonbane Strongboxes from the Siege of Dragonbane Keep event. Mythic Dungeon Difficulty Weekly quests: "Community Feasts", "Aiding the Accord", "Show Yer Mettle", the Valdrakken profession quests, weekly PvP quests for Honor. Grand Hunt Spoils (Uncommon, Rare, and Epic quality) Dragonflight Launch Day 1: To-Do List
      Complete the Dragonflight Intro Quest leading up to the point where you unlock Dragonriding. It takes about 30 minutes when you start questing in the Waking Shores. Focus on collecting all Dragon Glyphs to unlock Dragonriding Talents that vastly improve your leveling experience. Focus on reaching Level 70 with your main character and completing the Dragonflight Campaign to unlock World Quests, Adventure Mode, and Renown.
      When you unlock all three, focus on:
      Increasing your Renown with the four Major Factions by completing World Quests and opening treasure chests. Running Heroic Dungeons to gear up your main character. Completing World Quests for gear upgrades. Levelling up your Professions. Dragonflight Launch Day 2: To-Do List
      Clear all Mythic +0 dungeons for gear when they become available. Complete the Siege of Dragonbane Keep event. Focus on completing the following weekly quests: "Aiding the Accord", "Show Yer Mettle", Valdrakken Profession quests. Every reset, clear all World Quests on your map to maximize your reputation gains. To-Do List for Alts on Dragonflight Launch Week
      Don't forget to park all your alts in a rested area so they can start earning Rested XP. Log in to the game with your alts. The login after Dragonflight launches triggers Rested XP. Someone on Reddit mentioned you do not need to log in, but we cannot verify that at this time. Abandon all quests using the following macro. /run for i=1,C_QuestLog.GetNumQuestLogEntries() do C_QuestLog.SetSelectedQuest(C_QuestLog.GetInfo(i).questID); C_QuestLog.SetAbandonQuest(); C_QuestLog.AbandonQuest() end; Level up your alts using Adventure Mode. That about sums up the priorities for Dragonflight Launch Week 1. If we forgot about anything, let us know in the comments!

      The Underlight Angler Artifact Fishing Rod from Legion is currently experiencing some issues with Dracthyr characters and the Fishing For Attention buff disappearing when you leave combat. Here's how you can fix both.
      Dracthyr characters currently have issues with the Underlight Angler and upgrading it with Artifact Power. However, @stoppableforceprovides a handy macro that seems to fix the problem.
      The second bug causes the Fishing For Attention buff to fall off whenever you get out of combat. The following macro temporarily solves the issue until Blizzard patches the buff to reapply automatically.

      Here's two more tips/reminders for leveling in the new expansion, as these focus mostly on alts or for those that will be leveling multiple characters simultaneously (or those that have a lot of gold laying around). You could even be leveling from 60 to 66 in 30ish minutes, but would have to expend a lot of crafting resources.
      The first one is an oldie but a goodie, as Slashzor308 pointed out you should be logging in to your alts  after the Dragonflight launch, to get that rested XP bar going again! As you know, when a new expansion drops all characters get the new levels added and ready to be filled with experience, but you have to log in to each character to get that rested XP going.
      How soon you need to do that depends entirely on when you're planning on playing these other characters, as it takes a while for the full rested XP to gather up - you gain 5% of your current level in bonus XP per 8 hours logged off in an inn or capital city, or per 32 hours logged off elsewhere. The cap is at 150% of your current level in bonus XP, and you can read more about the rested XP system here.
      Update: the below method seems to have been nerfed, as the bonus XP for crafting was significantly reduced.
      The other, slightly weirder tip is potentially much more significant, as you could be gaining XP extremely fast while using your professions. Now, this one is from about two weeks ago on the beta, so it's not 100% certain it will work on live, but considering it's a pretty expensive way to level, it just might work. Basically the new profession system brings a lot of XP for crafting, and with enough mats you can speed through the first 6-ish levels very quickly. Here's the full post:
      You can find the new scaled down Dragonflight XP tables here, and you can also check out our leveling guides for each spec for general tips, builds and more.

      We have a very detailed leveling guide to take a look at, as Mr_Roguery took a lot of time to make a document with all the tricks and optimizations to get to level 70 in the most direct way possible. Roguery goes through each hub, main quest, side quest and offers basically a speed walkthrough of the quests, noting where to go and what to do, as well as adding some tips in for good measure.
      Meanwhile, if you're looking for something lighter and more general, you can also check out our own leveling guides, which include builds for each spec, heirlooms,  as well as an overview of the questing,

      A sample from the document.
      This is a very long document, so if you're just looking for ways to level faster, this isn't it - but if you want to plan your leveling ahead of time and know what to expect and what to do, where the Dragonriding glyphs and everything else is, as well as some recommendations for fun and cool quests,  you're in the right place!
