      Did you know you can buy multiple Onyx Annulets and you don't need to constantly swap out Primordial Gems?
      Researcher Imareth in Morqut Village sells additional Onyx Annulets for 10 Dormant Primordial Fragments each on live servers. If you swap out Primordial Gems often, you will be pleased to hear you don't have to. Simply, head to Researcher Imareth (35.09 57.61) who will sell more Onyx Annulets. That way, you can have 1 for Mythic+, raiding, etc.
      If Imareth doesn't sell anything, make sure to complete the quest where you recover the anvil and table from Zskera Vaults first.

      For more information, check out our Onyx Annulet guide.

      Blizzard announced more PvP Paladin tuning coming with the next reset! 
      Tuning (Source)
      With Judgment’s cast frequency increasing in patch 10.0.7, Judgments of the Pure has been overperforming as a PvP talent. In a hotfix being applied this upcoming Tuesday, the talent will only apply to the Paladin and no longer have its effect applicable to allies.
      PALADIN Judgments of the Pure (PvP Talent) now causes Judgment casts on an enemy to cleanse 1 Poison, Disease, and Magic effect they have caused on you (was allies within your aura).

      Many class changes went live earlier this week week and we're looking how they affect the Mythic+ Tier List.
      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 #16
      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: Tyrannical, Sanguine, Explosive, Thundering.

      Based on 3,199 runs, ranging in difficulty from +20 to +28.
