It’s time to see what things are like after week 2 in the Vault, this time with all three roles in one place! Last week saw some big class tuning, so let’s take a look at where it all ended up after that, in Heroic and Mythic.
Enhancement is the big story of the Heroic high percentiles, pushing up more and more, grabbing that 3rd spot away from Marksmanship, as the two Rogue specs remain unchanged at the top, hovering around the 70k DPS mark. Arcane got some moves as well, rising 3 spots into 5th, right as Windwalker falls 2 spots, allowing Assassination to stay right where it was. Frost DKs are the biggest movers this week, leaping 4 spots into 8th, as Havoc stays strong in 9th, and Elemental pushes 1 up to close out the top 10. Retribution finds itself 4 spots down in 11th, but at least it’s not down in the dumps with Destruction and Frost Mage, who are joined by Survival in the bottom 3.
The top two may look the same as last week at first glace, but the Rogues have had a complete reshuffling – Outlaw takes the top spot from Assassination, which drops down into 4th, as Subtletly moves into 2nd, with the Hunter spec making a wedge between all that yellow in 3rd. Enhancement moves up here as well, pushing Windwalker out of the way, as Arcane makes its way all the way up from 11th into 7th. Fury only drops 1 spot, but Frost DKs move up 3 into 8th, followed by Elemental’s single-spot rise. Havoc closes out the top 10 one spot down, as the bottom of the list sees Destruction at its base, followed by a double class combo of Mages and Hunters, as each have a top 10 and two bottom 5 representatives.
The logs for Mythic are still VERY sparse, with some specs having only 18 data points, so this is very much just to take a peek at what it might maybe look like (although the data is also skewed towards the very early bosses – mostly the first two where the vast majority of the guilds stopped at).
We took a separate look at healers and tanks recently, and not much has changed since then, as Preservation is still very much at the top. Druid was the only mover, rising one since last week and pushing Shaman down, while the rest remained the same.
Tank DPS isn’t that big of a stat but since we don’t really have any tankiness parses to check out, it’ll have to do! Guardian remains on top as the list didn’t change at all since last week, and generally the tank and healer rankings stay pretty stable throughout a patch cycle, if they don’t get any specific tuning.
That’s it for this week and we’ll see if we get some more Mythic numbers in next time, although anything beyond those first 2 bosses is going to have some very small numbers attached. Meanwhile you can check out our Dragonflight class guides here or our Vault of the Incarnates guide here.
