We’re looking at the first Mythic+ Tier List in the Dragonflight pre-patch based on the data from Subcreation.


The following post is based on statistics provided by Subcreation, a website that gathers various Mythic+ data from live servers. Please note that the tier list is biased toward the top end because it only looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix and doesn’t look at keys below +16 and untimed runs.

Therefore, the data presented in this news post will always differ from our Mythic Tier Lists maintained by our writer Petko.

Data Reliability

The data used in the post comes from Subcreation, a site maintained by Alcaras. Subcreation provides statistical analysis of Mythic+ dungeons, raids, and PvP in Shadowlands, and the data is provided via the Warcraft Logs API and Raider.io. If you’d like to support Subcreation, you can check out their Patreon.

How the Data is Calculated

The site looks at the top 100 keys per dungeon per affix across all regions and examines their raider.io scores. For each dungeon and specialization, the site takes the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval of the top 100 runs for each specialization. The site then averages these lower bounds, one per dungeon, to get an overall average lower bound for each spec, which is finally used to create the tier list.

The site takes the lower bounds of the 95% confidence interval calculated and then clusters them into 6 buckets using the Ckmeans algorithm. You can find more information by reading the site’s FAQ.

Tanks, Healers, Melee, and Ranged are all on the same scale, they’re just shown separately for easier comparison across roles.

Mythic+ Tier List in Dragonflight Pre-Patch Week 1

The specs are ranked based on their lb_ci, which is the lower bound of a 95% confidence interval. If a certain tier is missing, it’s not occupied by any specialization.
