Dragonflight Season 2 DPS Log Rankings for Aberrus, Week 2: Tuning Results, Arcane Out of Control

Recommended Posts

Clipboard05.jpg
 

Week 2 of Aberrus is behind us and last week's tuning has had a chance to take effect, but despite not having received any changes, Arcane is dominating everyone, pretty much everywhere. Before we get into the numbers, here's our Arcane guide writer explaining why this may be the case:

Arcane Mages shot up a a lot this week in the logs on Heroic and Normal difficulty. There are a couple of things that most likely caused this to happen.

First of all, last week, people clearing for the first time would not have any of the new set bonuses yet. Arcane has an extremely strong 2 set of the new tier (although 4-set is quite weak), which means that obtaining 2 set last week and then getting to used to it this week would be a significant DPS improvement. Additionally, the average kill time of bosses went down significantly, due to the massive influx of new gear from last week. Since Arcane is a very bursty spec, and benefits from double Bloodlust Bloodlust/Time Warp Time Warp, short kills boost their DPS significantly.

As mentioned above, there's still a lot of players waiting to complete their sets, so the rankings will still be shifting over the next weeks as that evens out, but Arcane is certainly the winner of the 2-set jackpot! Mythic is still not really a good place to look for stats, as not many have gotten most of the bosses down, but if you simply MUST know, we've added that chart to the bottom as well.

Heroic

Overall Damage 95th Percentile

While we had a close fight on our hands in the first week of Aberrus... oh boy is that not the case this time around. Arcane has skyrocketed in to an insane lead, with almost 10K DPS more than its closest competitor, and a lot more than that from everyone else. Demonology is the only one keeping up with the out of control Mage and also has a solid lead ahead of everyone else, but at least the rest of the pack are relatively close to each other. Demo has come out of nowhere, rising 9 spots into 2nd (and without the aid of any tuning), and Devastation followed suit to a lesser degree, gaining 2 spots in 3rd. Unholy and Subtletly are sporting almost identical numbers as the Evoker, with the Rogue having dropped 3 spots over the last week. While Shadow is a little higher this time around, Fury has also taken a rocket trip towards the top, winning the "most improved" trophy for the week, shoving past 10 other specs to land in 7th. Balance reclaims the Druid top spot, as Feral plummets to the bottom, while Destruction finds itself down in 9th, dropping 6 spots. Marksmanship is barely holding on to the top 10, 4 down at the end of it. Down at the bottom we see Frost DK finally moving out of the last 3 spots, as the aforementioned Feral joins Fire and Beast Mastery there.

Overall Damage All Percentiles

Arcane is rampaging through the generalist bracket as well, ahead in pretty much all the percentiles, and by a lot and surpassing previous No.1 Subtletly, but the Rogues does hold on a lot better here, only dropping to 2nd. Demo replaces Destro in 3rd, Unholy and Marksmanship hold on to their positions, and Fury is still bursting through to the top, gaining an even more impressive 11 spots here (which is to be expected, as the Warrior spec is notoriously gear-dependent)! Balance is also greatly improved, almost beating Fury out for "most improved", but it "only" gained 10 spots, so better luck next time.

Boss Only Damage All Percentiles

The direct boss damage chart isn't looking any better for specs that aren't Arcane, as its insane advantage remains here as well. The rest is looking similar to last week, aside from the two in-class switches, with Demonology replacing Destruction for Warlocks (and moving up a whole lot in the process) and Subtletly flipping with Assassination for Rogues. Affliction also moved up a lot, while Retribution dropped a few, and Havoc managed to dig itself up out of the bottom 3.

Normal

Arcane is even more out of control in Normal, as the short fights give the spec even more of an advantage. The Warlock struggle gets a face-to-face component here, as Destro and Demo are neck and neck.

Mythic

As before, the Mythic rankings are extremely incomplete, with only 10 guilds having actually finished the raid. We do see an entirely different set up here though, whether it's because of that or the longer and harder fights, as Elemental finds itself at the very top, and Arcane down in the middle of the pack!

      Here's a video covering everything coming in the War Within pre-patch event on July 30th.
      Radiant Echoes, the pre-patch event, will begin on July 30, based on the splash screen. We covered the whole event in great detail, but for those who need a reminder:
      You must complete a short quest that leads you to the Dalaran Chamber where you can teleport to Dustwallow March, Searing Gorge, and Dragonblight. When a Radiant Echo is active, you must port to the zones, slay Lingering Memories and "Remembred" mobs to gather Residual Memories that you can turn in for rewards. The whole event ends in slaying Remembered Onyxia, Remembered Ragnaros, or Remembered Lich King, based on the zone you're in. Rewards include Warbound ilvl 480 gear, mounts, battle pets, bags, and more. You can find the quartermaster either in the Dalaran Chamber or in each of the zones. The event will most likely be available until the TWW Early Access begins on August 22 or when the expansion launches on August 26. For more details check out our detailed preview of Radiant Echoes, but you should also check out MrGM's latest video because the whole event has been bugged on both Beta and the PTR for me and I couldn't get a single Lingering Memory to spawn.

      The War Within pre-patch event will start on July 30th!
      Blizzard hasn't officially announced the release date for the War Within pre-patch, but the latest splash screen suggests that Radiant Echoes, the War Within pre-patch event begins on July 30, 2024.
      This would give players four weeks to join in before the new expansion officially drops on August 26 (or August 22 for Early Access holders).
      We expect the pre-patch to hit live servers on or before July 30!
      Check out the full splash screen in all its glory!
