Dragonflight DPS Log Rankings for Vault of the Incarnates: Week 4

Recommended Posts

The Rogue domination is definitely over, but the yellow specs are still doing fine, as this past week brought a lot of change to the rankings in the Vault. This is all ahead of the big tuning pass coming with the reset, which will be buffing quite a few specs, so next week is going to be even more interesting.

Heroic

95th Percentile

Arcane has managed to hold on to the top spot, despite the big commotion going on under it, as Unholy makes a huge leap up, moving past 5 specs to claim 2nd. Balance joins Arcane in holding steady in 3rd as Outlaw drops down past it, with Marksmanship losing one to accommodate the rising DK. Enhancement also holds on tight, making it 6 different classes in the top 6, with Subtletly dropping under it and Assassination behind it being the only Rogue spec doing better this week. Frost DK drops 2 spots while Havoc rises one to complete the top 10, just ahead of Windwalker which drops 2 in turn. The bottom specs remain the same, but all three of them are getting buffs this reset so they may be out of there soon!

All Percentiles

The generalist bracket is playing catch-up, as Arcane has only gotten to 2nd here now, pushing Marksmanship down one, as Outlaw remains in charge. Subtletly and Assassination are joined together here as well while Balance rises, gaining 2 spots as the trends follow the top percentiles, but aren't quite there yet. Unholy rises here as well, but only two spots, as Enhancement drops the same amount, with Windwalker ending only slightly better than in the top percentiles, but actually losing 3 spots to land in 10th. The bottom 3 is the same as last week, and all three of those specs are also receiving buffs as well.

Mythic

The number of Mythic logs is increasing, but it's till not yet significant enough, with only 100 entries for Survival, and more than 10 under 3,000, as only 13 guilds in the world killed Raszageth. Enhancement is the big star of the week here as it claims 2nd, and the Unholy trend continues here as well in 3rd, with Balance also moving up and then some. Frost is the big outlier as it's actually improving and doing a lot better than in Heroic, while the rest of the top 10 is pretty similar to the easier difficulty.

Wasnt destro buffed recently? I cant see that, top destros being good as badest rogues. The delta at least should overlap.

These figures apply to less than 5% of people that play wow. I'm not entirely sure why people get upset about classes not being balanced. Imagine everything did the exact same dps just with different buttons, that would be so fun....

This is so sad ppl invest a lot of time and gold to their toons just to find out they are last everywhere.

Every class has a spec at least middle of the pack. Lowest 5 are hunter, mage and warlock. Mage is #1 in hc 95th, marksmanship top 5 aswell. Lock a bit worse with demo being middle but still fine.

That's not the right way to seeing it.

It shows every spec potential and when you see you can't reach a certain point of DPS whatever the efforts you put into your gameplay and your char, this is, sometimes, very unfair.

About this tab, the only thing I think is unfair is the rogue. You take the Top 7 (which is relatively a short top) and you get all of the 3 rogue spec.

No other class can claim this absurd unbalance thing.

What you said actually makes  lot of sense, only if classes that dominate damage are ones that have less utility to offer. 

As it stands how classes that have most utility are classes that have biggest damage potential, I mean just look at melee, Rogue, Druid, Shaman, Demon Hunters, Death Knights, all dominate DPS wise, and have huge utility potential. 

Why would you invite Warrior into your group, if only thing it can do is do damage, and damage it does is subpar to damage utility heavy classes have. 

As I warrior main I can confirm you that I never had harder time playing PVE content just to the fact that I am almost never invited, especially in M+ dungeons.

Ok? Play Prot then? If you don't want to then deal with the hand that life dealt you. Warrior will be great one tier and not another it's just the way things are.

it's litterally impossible to balance classes 100% because there will always be want great player and one poor player on either end of the board

      We have a bit of a dungeon availability switcheroo today, as Blizzard have fixed the Plaguefall issue and turned the dungeon back on, but also disabled Timewalking Court of Stars! 
      Dungeons (Source 1, 2)
      We’ve identified an issue causing some players to become trapped in the Legion Timewalking Court of Stars dungeon and we’ve temporarily removed the dungeon from the Timewalking dungeon finder. No one likes being stuck in Court.
      The Mythic+ version of the dungeon appears to be unaffected by this issue.
      We’ll let you know when we’ve got it fixed and opened again.

      ...
      With a hotfix, we’ve re-enabled the Plaguefall dungeon. The terrain issue some players were experiencing has been fixed.
      Thank you.

      Blizzard have announced some big changes coming to Retribution Plaladins with the next content patch, with a rebuild of the talent tree from the ground up! Check out all the details below:
      Retribution (Source)
      Well met!
      We’re doing a substantial rework to the Retribution talent tree in patch 10.0.7. Rebuilding the Retribution talent tree from the ground up means significant changes ahead. However, the talent tree itself will not be available in our first PTR build(s), so initial testing on the PTR will be missing important context.
      Nonetheless, we’d like to share our major goals for Retribution with you.
      Button bloat: Retribution Paladins currently have a fairly large number of abilities, and some of these feel unnecessary and inefficient. We’re working to tone this down and have a more focused set of abilities and cooldowns.
      Stacking modifiers: There are currently several talents and abilities that provide stacking bonuses, which can make for a confusing and messy playstyle that deals extreme burst damage, but in return leaves your core abilities feeling unsatisfying and under-tuned. We intend to significantly change this. We want your core abilities to feel good and powerful when used in all situations. This doesn’t mean we’re reducing all elements of burst damage, but we do want to make burst more purposeful and deliberate, while also allowing options that provide sustained damage.
      Survivability: Retribution Paladins currently have one of the highest death rates across all forms of content. For a plate wearing class with hybrid healing, this doesn’t feel right. We’re looking to strengthen them through a mixture of passive bonus and improvements to active abilities and cooldowns, while keeping the degree of challenge that results from being a melee-based spec.
      Maneuverability: We recognize that there’s an issue here and we hope to make some improvements. However, we want to set clear expectations. Retribution Paladins should not expect to gain the mobility of Rogues.
      Utility: The changes that Dragonflight brought to Retribution have caused some conflict for players, forcing the Ret Paladin to choose between providing benefits to their groups or benefiting themselves. This choice can be interesting, but due to the way this has historically worked for Paladins, it hasn’t felt right in Dragonflight. So, we’re looking to make changes here that allow you to feel good and improve your own damage while also providing the group benefits that you’re used to. We’re also looking into additional utility improvements for Paladins during the 10.0.7 test cycle.
      We’re looking forward to hearing your feedback on the points above, as well as anything else about Retribution that you’d like to share. Thank you!

      Plenty of class fixes arrive in today's batch, as well as a change to Bolstering, items, quests, professions and more - including a Wrath Classic fix as well.
      January 27 (Source)
      Classes
      Druid Restoration Fixed an issue that could cause Regrowth to sometimes not apply its direct healing after casting Nourish. Monk Mistweaver Fixed an issue that caused Awakened Faeline and Ancient Concordance to fail to apply in some instances while multiple Faelines were present. Paladin Retribution Lawbringer now correctly deals 8% of enemy maximum health in damage. Rogue The Outlaw 2pc set bonus now correctly interacts with Echoing Reprimand. Warlock Affliction Fixed an issue where Inevitable Demise was granting double benefit to Drain Life. Fixed an issue where Malefic Affliction was not being removed when casting Unstable Affliction on another target. Fixed an issue where Withering Bolt was exceeding the described damage increase cap when using Drain Soul. Fixed an issue where Malefic Rapture and Seed of Corruption consumed multiple applications of Cruel Epiphany. Dungeons and Raids
      Mythic+ Affixes Bolstering no longer applies to players’ summons. Items and Rewards
      The Ensemble: Tuskar Trader’s Leather Armor sold by Lontupit or Murik in Iskaara will no longer require Resilient Leather, which wasn’t showing on the vendor’s list of required items. Professions
      Alchemy Potion of Sacrificial Anima can no longer be used above level 60. The tooltip will reflect this in a future patch. Engineering The Magazine of Healing Darts embellishment will now only fire towards and be consumed by other players. Quests
      Valdrakken Players who have not yet started “Reviving the Machine” should now see its starting location displayed in Valdrakken’s map.
        Wrath of the Lich King Classic
      Classes Death Knight Sigil of the Vengeful Heart now increases Death Coil damage and Frost Strike damage by the correct amounts listed on the item’s tooltip.

      We're looking at 10 mounts that will be available in the Trading Post starting February 1.
      Magenta Cloud Serpent
      More affectionate than their cousins, Magenta Cloud Serpents are known to form close bonds with their riders.

      Crusty Crawler
      This rare giant crab has taken a break from its nautical nonsense deep under the sea to explore the surface.

      Quawks
      Squawks's older (and somehow louder) brother appears to tolerate your presence. For now. You should probably track down some crackers while you still can.

      Ash'adar, Harbinger of Dawn
      Kaldorei legends whisper of a relentless hunter prowling amongst the deepest shadows of Kalimdor, never sleeping. By the light of the sun or the moon, Ash'adar now hunts with you.


      Coral-Stalker Waveray
      This species of ray seems to have evolved to stalk its prey amidst the brightly colored corals of the seas.

      Savage Green Battle Turtle
      Turtle too slow to chase down your foes? Just add cannons. Nothing can outrun a cannon.
      Model Preview Not Available
      Armored Siege Kodo
      Only the strongest and most fearless of kodos can be trained to become living siege weapons. Even the highest walls won't keep them out for long.
      Model Preview Not Available
      Armored Golden Pterrordax
      Many an unwary direhorn has met its end in a flash of glittering gold before becoming this pterrordax's next meal.

      Cerulean Marsh Hopper
      Gottum's expansion into export markets was inevitable with news of the Trading Post reaching even into the depths of the Frogmarsh.

      Celestial Steed
      A beacon of hope; a guiding light in the darkness.
      More Store Mounts will probably be available in the Trading Post in the future, but for now, we only know of Celestial Steed. Note that not all the mounts will be available for purchase at the same time. It appears there will only be 1 mount per rotation/month.

      You can skip the Spark of Ingenuity questline on alts and instantly receive 5 Sparks if you completed it on your main.
      Once you collect 5 Spark of Ingenuity on your main, you can talk to Greyzik Cobblefinger at the Engine of Innovati on in Valdrakken on alts to skip the whole questline and receive 5 Bottled Essences and Essence Detector. The skip will only work for characters that haven't started the questline yet.
