Mythic+ Tier List in Dragonflight Season 1 (Week 9)

Recommended Posts


We're looking at this week's Mythic+ Tier List for the first time since the big class tuning from February 6 went live.


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 ignores keys below +16 and untimed runs.

For the reasons mentioned above, the data presented here will always differ from the Mythic Tier Lists maintained by 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 for Dragonflight Season 1: Week #9

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.

The following tier list is for this week's affixes: Fortified, Bursting, Explosive, and Thundering.

      A funny "Too Hot to Handle" reference has been discovered in Zaralek Cavern in Patch 10.1.
      When you target and /kiss Fyrakk in Zaralek Cavern, you will receive the Too Hot to Handle debuff and suffer Fire damage for 10 seconds.
      Too Hot to Handle - Are you blushing, or is it just the 1 Fire damage being dealt every 1 sec?
      The "Too Hot to Handle" reference was discovered by MrGM. Fyrakk is one of the Incarnates that escaped after Raszageth's defeat.

      Blizzard have changed the 4-set bonus for the 10.1 armor on Windwalker Monks on the PTR.
      Windwalker PTR (Source)
      We have deployed a hotfix to the 10.1 PTR realms to adjust the Windwalker Monk 4-Set bonus. The new bonus is as follows:
      Windwalker Monk:
      (4) Set Bonus: Fists of Fury deals 25% increased damage to the primary target and increases Shadow and Fire damage you deal to all targets hit by 40% for 15 sec. Developer’s note: This hotfix replaces the existing 10.1 Windwalker Class Set Bonus with a new effect. While we loved the fantasy of granting Windwalkers an additional spirit, we heard your feedback around the resultant lack of control loud and clear and are making this change as a result.
