We’ve arrived at the last entry in the Shadowlands raid DPS tank and healer logs, right here at the end of the expansion, so let’s take a look at where everyone ended up in the pre-patch! We won’t be going into too much detail on the week-to-week changes, as this will mostly serve as a comparison point for when Dragonflight launches and everything changes.
Important note: Evokers may be down near the bottom in some charts, but remember they’ve only had 2 weeks since their launch – neither the item levels nor player skill levels are or can be high enough to properly compare to the other classes and specs yet, and the specs were designed to be played at level 70.
Warlocks end the expansion dominating, as each of their three specs spent one or more patches at the top, and by far – although Affliction is definitely ahead the most we’ve seen so far, thanks to its AoE Fated affix shenanigans. Devastation Evokers are actually gaining a lot of ground, as they were at the bottom last week, and we see them almost breaking the top 10, landing in 11th at Shadowlands’ end. Subtletly claims the dubious honor of being at the actual bottom at the finish line.
The generalist bracket is similar to the top percentiles, but Devastation hasn’t had a chance to shine here just yet, as the top players are much faster at adapting and using the new spec to its fullest. Marksmanship bails out Subtletly and takes the hit here, ending in last place.
Tanks and Healers
Just a quick check in with tanks, as Guardian continues dominating the DPS with its little trick.
Evokers didn’t improve as much here as in the DPS part (neither in the overall nor top percentiles), but they did move out of last place, leaving Paladins behind.
Heroic sees Elemental and Arms doing much better, with Devastation rising, but not quite as much as in Mythic. Subtletly claims the bottom honors here as well.
And that’s it for Shadowlands, as we’re only a few hours away from the new expansion – and you can check out our Dragonflight class guides here.
