Dragonflight Mythic+ Season 2 DPS, Tank and Healer Log Rankings: Week 0.5

Recommended Posts


Here we are in Mythic+ Season 2 at last and, unlike the raid, we did not have anything to check out during its first week, so we'll be comparing directly to the Season 1 rankings, before all the original 10.1 tuning came in, not to mention the additional S2 stuff.

Note: The logs are based on POINTS, and not actual damage or healing, meaning they log the timed completion for the specs, with higher keys getting more points, obviously. The time in which the dungeon is completed is also a factor, but a much, much smaller one, as it grants very few points if you do it significantly faster than just any in-time completion. We're also using the Normalized Aggregate Scores numbers, for clarity, meaning the top spec is marked as 100 and then the rest are ranked in relation to that peak point.

This week still is:

All Keys

95th percentile DPS

The more things change, the more they stay the same - and there's nothing more "same" than Subtlety sitting at the top of Mythic+! We may have (sort of) gotten rid of Fire's near-permanent stay at the top in recent months, but the Rogue spec is just not going anywhere. And while Fire may be a little further down, Arcane is absolutely the spec of the hour, both here and in raids, as it gets that cozy 2nd spot all warmed up for itself - after rising all the way up from the very bottom since last season. Balance rose a little as well, 3 spots into 3rd, mirrored by Shadow's 3-spot fall, while Destruction stayed pretty much in the same place. Then comes Fire which is just waiting for its chance, as the all-time Mythic+ king will reign again. Havoc is down while Outlaw and Fury are up, and Enhancement closes out the top 2 only a few spots lower than before. Affliction and Frost DK remain at the bottom, now joined by Beast Mastery, who is not having a fun time this season so far.

All Percentiles

Things are a little different in the generalist bracket, but very similar to where we ended in Season 1. Destruction is the main change here compared to the high percentiles, staying put in 2nd, and Balance is making the same moves as in the higher bracket, 3 up here as well, while Outlaw remains in it's pre-S2 4th spot. That's when Arcane comes in, also out of the bottom 3 into the top, just ahead of Havoc which lost 3 spots. Marksmanship is representing Hunters in 9th as Fury closes out the top 10.

The tanks actually had quite a bit of an upheaval as Brewmaster moved 2 up into 1st (and 2 is a LOT here), pushing both Paladin and DK down. Guardian and Prot also changed spots, as the Warrior is now down in the dumps.

Healers remain very stable with the top 2 remaining solid, but Discipline and Holy Pala move one up after that, leaving Resto Druid 2 down in 5th.

As an Arcane Mage I checked my own ranking after reading this post and it turns out I'm rank 20 out of 5 470, which puts me in the top 0.36% of Arcane Mages in terms of m+ score. Meanwhile there's 20 742 Frost Mages and 12 334 Fire Mages.

Arcane is seen as the "harder" spec because you have a lot of small and frequent decisions to make which can make it less enjoyable to play, but it is currently the dominant spec in the raid.

I think this means mostly the more "advanced" and progress oriented players are playing Arcane, thus perhaps the higher end of Arcane Mages are playing more m+ for gear and pushing up their score.

Contrary to this though, if we look at how many of each spec are over 2000 score currently, only 5 Arcane Mages have done so, with no one breaking 2100. Frost on the other hand has 21 players above 2000 rating and 1 player over 2100. For Fire there are 2 players close to 2100 and 14 over 2000 rating. I think this paints a different picture than what the posts suggests.

Because there's so many fewer Arcane Mages, the top 5% consists only of 274 players while the top 5% of Frost Mages consists of 1 037 players, dragging down the average for Frost as a whole since most people can't sit and play all day and do every key. Arcane is definitely better than before, but I expect to see it decline in the rankings over the next few weeks.

      Galakrond's head is present in the Patch 10.1.5 megadungeon as an object and it's huge. We're comparing its to the size of Stormwind and Deathwing, thanks to keyboardturn.
      Galakrond's head is an actual model (M2) instead of a world model object (WMO). M2 are standard creature models capable of animations. Galakrond's head is used in one of the Dawn of the Infinite megadungeon boss rooms.

      Here's what the actual in-game model looks like:

      Week 3 of Aberrus saw things settle in, as this may be what the rankings will look like until we see some tuning (at least in Heroic). We're also taking a deeper look into Mythic this week, as more guilds have finished up the raid, but the focus is still on Heroic as it's only been 30 guilds that defeated Sarkareth Mythic.
      Overall Damage 95th Percentile
      Arcane has pulled out ahead even more, increasing their DPS by over 10K since last time, but the other specs are also very much improved, as more tier sets come into play (you can read about just why the Mage spec is doing so well here). While Demonology remains in 2nd, Unholy has pushed up into 3rd, and we have yet another Warlock in the top 5 as Affliction skyrockets 6 spots up and pushes Devastation down into 5th. Shadow remains stable as everything changes around it, with the scuffle above and Subtlety falling down below the Priest. Marksmanship breaks into the top 10, pushing the third Warlock spec out, while the Shamans hang out together in the middle of the pack. Beast Mastery, Fire and Feral remain at the boom, with the Hunter spec getting very used to it down there.

      Overall Damage All Percentiles
      Subtletly is doing a lot better in the generalist bracket, beating out Unholy for 3rd, while the top 2 remain the same. Affliction doesn't rise as high as in the top percentiles, but does gain more spots, 10 in fact, with Balance at its back, also gaining 2. Marksmanship and Fury stick together on their way down, both dropping 2 spots. Devastation is on its way up here, grabbing 9th.

      Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
      Arcane isn't quite as far ahead here, but is still in a commanding lead, as Unholy tries to give it a run for its money. The two top Warlocks specs are very close here and even Destruction arrives into the top 10 to make it 3 purples, as Assassination drops quite a few spots.

      All percentiles Heroic data by Warcraft Logs.
      Mythic is becoming more relevant each week, especially with the short fights of Heroic skewing things in favor of Arcane, which isn't doing so well here, finding itself down in 8th. Frost DKs are back on top, but extremely close to Devastation. Shadow is only a little further down, just ahead of previous No.1, Elemental. The Warlock party continues in Mythic as well, as Demo is actually joined by Destro instead of Affliction in 5th and 6th, but the DoT spec isn't that far behind, also making the top 10. Beast Mastery and Fire are at the bottom of all the rankings, but are actually joined by Fury here.

      Blizzard is adding 3 new tabards in Patch 10.1.5. We have a Sons of Hodir tabard, a new Scourge tabard with the Forsaken W3 logo, and more.
      Utopian Tabard
      This is the Sons of Hodir tabard recently added in Wrath Classic, I think.

      Victorious Scourge Tabard
      A new Scourge tabard of sorts with the Warcraft 3 logo was added in Patch 10.1.5. This one has some clipping issues in the latest 10.1.5 PTR build.

      Time Mender's Tabard
      The final third tabard is themed after time travel. Maybe it's from the new megadungeon or Time Rifts.

      Anboni has created a WoW prop hunt game in Unreal Engine 5 that takes place in Gadgetzan.
      You right-click an object to transform into it. "R" is an AoE root on a 1-minute cooldown. When you press "V", you will AoE taunt nearby enemies Everyone can put a robot on the ground that alerts about nearby enemies. Every player has 5 lives.
      Anboni played the game with friends and we have a nearly 10-minute gameplay video.
      If you're interested in how the game came to be you can also watch the "making of" video below.

      The surprise Blue Dragonflight questline that became available on live servers last week added a new Malygos model. Check it out!
      Dragonwrath wielders will obtain Tarecgosa's Visage as a standalone mount upon completion. The questline ends with a cinematic that shows members of the Blue Dragonflight. Most notably, we get to see a brand new Malygos model.
