We have the truly final rankings for Vault of the Incarnates today, as the one week it had in patch 10.1 is now over and Aberrus is upon us tomorrow. So let’s take a look where the 10.1 specs may be heading, although there will be plenty of changes due to the different encounters in the new raid, its loot, and especially the new tier set bonuses.
Overall Damage 95th Percentile
Devastation is still OP as we saw on day 1 of the patch with the DKs falling into (almost exactly the same) place behind it, but we do see Arms move a large chunk up, going from 8th to 4th! Feral and Arcane’s high positions on day 1 were not a fluke it seems, as they sit in 5th and 6th, followed by Windwalker and Shadow. We finish off the top 10 with Marksmanship and Enhancement, and it’s good to finally see a Shaman in the top once more. The melee tag-team of Fury and Retribution stay together and just miss out on the top 10, as they get sandwiched between two Shamans. The bottom 3 changed a little, but it’s still all the usual suspects down in the dumps.
Overall Damage All Percentiles
Devastation isn’t that far ahead in the overall percentiles as Unholy is close behind, and Frost DK isn’t anywhere near the top as usual, being very much a top player-only spec. Arms fills in the No.3 gap while Feral climbs to 4th, as Windwalker does a little better here and lands in 5th. Retribution is still doing well in the generalist bracket, although it does drop two into 7th since day 1, while Fury and Marksmanship get outdone by Subtletly, which rises 3 into 8th.
Boss Only Damage All Percentiles
The direct damage chart is the most stable, as nothing changed since day one all the way down to 6th, where Frost DK has fallen off a cliff and been replaced by Survival. Arms pushes Devastation down one and out of the top 10, while Fury joins the bottom 3.
Heroic Overall DPS
We have a new Heroic ruler as Arcane manages to push all the way to the top with its newfound improvements, pushing Unholy down into 2nd. Marksmanship retains its top 3 spot while Assassination comes out of nowhere, rising 7 spots to land in 4th and pushing Devastation down one. Shadow also gains a few spots and moves past Arms, as Windwalker falls to 8th. Heroic showcases just how player/raid composition-dependent Frost DK is, as it finds itself at the absolute bottom of the charts here, as opposed to its No.3 spot in the high Mythic percentiles.
