Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 DPS Log Rankings for Vault of the Incarnates: Day 1

Recommended Posts


We taking a look at the "day 1" logs (since both US and EU regions have had a shot at the post-patch tuning raid), but the Warlock shenanigans are still affecting the rankings, with two bugs that needed to be hotfixed, one arriving just today with the Corruption nerf and the other the pet buffs affecting the character itself. So it may be best to not take the Warlock stats too seriously for now. And, of course, keep in mind these are very preliminary rankings as it's only been a few days since the patch.


Overall Damage 95th Percentile

We're going to pretend Affliction isn't on top of it all, pending some more logs with the nerfs in place, so it seems Frost DK is the new No.1 of the patch, after a solid performance in No.2 before it as well! Marksmanship is significantly improved, 5 spots up, and then come the other two Warlocks which "only" benefited from the one insanely significant DPS increase bug. It is looking like Destruction is in a better place, even disregarding the bug, since it was at the literal bottom of the chart before the patch and it's unlikely the bug carried it this high all on its own, considering how much it affected the other two specs. Arms and Subtletly remained pretty much the same if we ignore the purple weirdness, and then we have the previous No.1 and No.2 and Beast Mastery closing out the top 10. Unholy drops to last, joining Assassination which was there before, and Fury completes the bottom 3, with the Warrior having dropped a lot more than the DK.

Overall Damage All Percentiles

Marksmanship edged out Frost DK in the generalist bracket (and we're still ignoring the Warlocks) but the top 3 has the same specs in it as the high percentiles. Beast Mastery seems like the big winner of the patch, as it finds itself up high here as well, landing in 5th from way down near the bottom. Outlaw also sees a lot of improvement, getting the better of once No.1 Shadow, and we then see some pink in the top 10 as the newly revamped Retribution aficionados get to grips with their new toys.

Heroic DPS

Heroic is even more of an Affliction fanclub, with its two bugs propelling it way above everything else, but that particular party is already over. We then see three Hunter specs dominate everything, same as they have been in Normal difficulty before, and Paladins break through right behind them! It's all very organized here as we then see the two Rogues stick together, with Unholy doing better than Frost here, unlike in the top percentiles. Arcane drops a whole lot as it finds itself in the bottom 3, joined by frequent visitors Elemental and Devastation, which didn't have to travel far since last week.

Normal DPS

As the Hunters take over in Heroic they lose their control in Normal, as only Beast Mastery manages to stay at the top, the green tide getting broken by the two yellows (this time Assassination instead of Subtletly). We see a class grouping again at the very bottom, as all three Mage specs decided to take it very easy for now.

We'll be back at the start of next week with some proper numbers, and hopefully the Warlock bugs will get drowned out by some more solid data so we can see where they're actually at, but there will probably still be traces, as those bugs provided a lot of DPS.

Meanwhile you can check out our Dragonflight class guides here or our Vault of the Incarnates guides here, as well as more data from Warcrat Logs here.

      Players have been gathering in masses to farm out all the (many) drops the Diablo crossover event goblins are dropping, and it seems there's one drop Blizzard didn't specifically mention in their event overview.
      As spotted by DesMephisto and many others, it seems the treasure part of their name doesn't only refer to all the items and cosmetics they drop, but also gold! 500-1000 or so, in fact:
      Not exactly astronomical numbers, but considering how quickly they die, it might be worth the hassle. Players have been gathering in large numbers, trying to get everything from the mount, pet, bag and all the cosmetics (although the charms have lost some of their appeal since Blizzard disabled them in instanced content).
      And while the low, low framerates when that many people gather up are problematic, others have found a different sort of fun, as faction warfare sometimes ensues!
      Despite some players getting quickly bored with the event, it's still quite a lot of free loot to get, so it's not all bad. What do you think of it all? Too simple and boring or "thanks for the free stuff"?
      If you're looking for their spawn times and locations, you can check out a Weakaura for that here.

      Greetings raiders.
      We will be addressing an emerging tactic that trivializes certain aspects of the Vigilant Steward, Zskarn encounter. We’re planning on implementing these changes live tomorrow, May 26.
      We hope that these changes will encourage more interaction with the encounter’s existing mechanics, while maintaining its prior level of difficulty.

      Aberrus, the Shadowed Crucible Developers’ note: The Zskarn changes address an emerging tactic that trivializes certain aspects of the encounter. We hope these changes will encourage more interaction with the encounter’s existing mechanics, while maintaining its prior level of difficulty. The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn The Vigilant Steward, Zskarn health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty. Dragonfire Golem health reduced by 15% on Mythic difficulty. Zskarn will now Berserk on all difficulties. Adjusted the position of Dragonfire Traps. Shrapnel Bomb reduced to 3 on Mythic difficulty (was 4). Fixed an issue that could cause an inappropriate amount of Shrapnel Bombs to spawn. Zskarn no longer activates Tactical Destruction based on his location.

      Blizzard have given players a preview of the upcoming 10.1.5 PTR build where they are giving Demonology some buffs after the very bad reaction the community had to recent changes.
      While Affliction and Destruction are also getting some changes, Demonology is the star of the show, as it will be receiving many changes to compensate for the recent massive nerfs. Let's take a look!

      Greetings Warlocks,
      We’ve been reading through the feedback provided over the past week and want to provide an update with a look at the changes you’ll see in the next PTR build.
      Unstable Affliction damage increased by 10%.
      Seed of Corruption’s cast time has been reduced to 2 seconds (was 2.5 seconds).
      Shadowflame Acolyte has been removed.
      Fel Covenant has been removed.
      Demonic Knowledge has been re-added and is now located where Shadowflame Acolyte was.
      Demonic Knowledge now more reliably procs at a 15% chance.
      Shadow's Bite has been re-added and is now located where Fel Covenant was.
      Hand of Gul'dan damage increased by 25%.
      Implosion damage increased by 15%.
      Call Dreadstalkers damage increased by 15%.
      Demonbolt damage increased by 20%.
      Bilescourge Bombers’ Soul Shard cost has been reduced to 0 (was 2).
      Umbral Blaze now has a 15/30% chance of occurring (was 8/15%).
      Umbral Blaze now retains remaining damage when reapplied.
      2-piece tier set bonus adjusted – Demonbolt damage increased 20% (was 15%). Consuming a Demonic Core reduces the cooldown of Grimoire: Felguard by 1 second. This has no effect in PVP combat.
      Dirty Hands has been renamed to Malefic Impact.
      Crashing Chaos redesigned – Summon Infernal increases the damage of your next 8 casts of Chaos Bolts by 50% (10% in PvP combat) or your next 8 casts of Rain of Fire by 70% (15% in PvP combat).
      Dimensional Rift damage increased by 15%.
      Ripped through the Portal
      Regarding Demonology, these adjustments are being made to compensate for Ripped through the Portal not returning to the Demonology talent tree. We want talents to be competitive options against one another and, given the synergistic value of Ripped through the Portal, it’s very difficult for us to adjust it in a way that it becomes an option rather than the right choice.
      Demonic Cores
      The removal of Demonic Knowledge, Demonic Meteor, and Ripped through the Portal was too much of a push in the direction of reining in Demonology’s mobility. Demonbolt is a cool spell that enables Demonology to be reactive. We don’t want to create a drought of Demonic Cores, but at the same time we don’t want it to be the only generator you cast. By re-adding Demonic Knowledge, the cadence of Demonic Cores should be in a healthier place.
      The feedback provided has been extremely helpful and we appreciate the community’s thoughts on the changes we’re making in Fractures in Time. Thank you for the insights provided and we’ll continue to watch for further discussion.

      Blizzard has updated the Character Select Screen in Patch 10.1.5 with a new drag and drop function that lets you easily move your characters around.
      If you'd like to change the order of your characters as they appear on the Select Screen in Patch 10.1.5, you can do so easily by drag and dropping them where you'd like.
