Dragonflight Patch 10.0.7 DPS Log Rankings for Vault of the Incarnates, Week 2: Retribution!

Recommended Posts


It's a huge week in the Vault of the Incarnates as we have a (very) new No.1, and it's one that will put a smile on a lot of player's faces! We're also taking a look at the boss damage numbers for a more complete picture, and plenty has changed after the tuning all over the place, so let's get started.


Overall Damage 95th Percentile

That's right, it's pink at the top as the Retribution revamp really took off in week two of the patch, so congratulations to the DPS Paladins out there finally getting their due (not to mention that they got there via a 14 spot jump since last week)! Frost DK remains very strong and only loses out to the new hotness, despite their 3% nerf, as the charts below that see Affliction plummeting after the two bugs that were helping it out cleared out of the system, in addition to the recent class tuning finding the dot-iest Warlock spec 10 spots down in 12th. The rest of the purple class is doing very well, however, and Demonology is taking the lead, closely followed by Destruction as they stick together in spots 3 and 4. Shadow is recovering a little after its major fall with the first week of the patch, regaining 2 spots, as Subtletly remains one of the most stable specs in recent memory, sticking to its 6th spot. Last week's nerfs saw Marksmanship drop 3 spots into 7th, taking that spot away from Devastation. Arms and Havoc stick together again and close out the top 10, with Outlaw standing just outside. The bottom 3 looks exactly the same, but it actually isn't, as a different Mage spec has come in, with Frost replacing Arcane in the very much not coveted second-to-last spot.

Overall Damage All Percentiles

The Paladin surge isn't just a top percentiles thing, as the Rets are actually doing even better in the generalist bracket, with a much more significant lead over 2nd place, which was taken over by Subtletly here, rising 2 spots and getting past Demonology, with Affliction having dropped down to the middle of the pack. Marksmanship only lost 2 spots here, followed by Outlaw in 5th, and Shadow remaining in 6th. Frost DK finds itself 4 spots down after its 3% nerf, as the ever-linked team of Arms and Havoc moves past it, with the other two Warlocks just behind.

Boss Only Damage All Percentiles

We're on to boss damage now and we don't have a direct point of comparison with the previous week here, so let's just a look at the more general situation. Affliction is still riding high somewhere it seems, as it was always solid at boss damage and is now at the top. Survival and Beast Mastery are right behind it, as both were very high before the patch as well. The DKs are very close together here, with Unholy coming out on top, just ahead of Destruction. Paladins are much improved in this chart as well, as they were at the bottom before the patch and now find themselves in 9th, with all three Mages are also doing much better, in the upper middle of the pack instead of way down near the bottom. The actual bottom is held by Windwalker here, joined by Fury and Devastation.

Heroic Overall DPS

Heroic is the last bastion against total Retribution domination, as Affliction managed to retain the top spot here, followed by Assassination which moved 2 spots up. The Paladins aren't too far away, however, and we might be seeing them at the actual top next week, as they sit in 3rd, just ahead of the Hunter pack for now.

Normal Overall DPS

It's a pink top here in Normal as well, as Affliction gets booted down to 6th and Ret takes over, with the three Hunters staying right where they were, with Survival getting the better of BM.

      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.
