Next Wednesday (December 14th) the first season of WoW starts: Dragonflight. Then the raids and the Mythic Plus dungeons open. The theorycrafters have summarized which class will perform best in which content in two tier lists that we don’t want to withhold from you.
Next Wednesday, December 14th, the first two weeks of WoW: Dragonflight will be over and the first season will officially start. In practice, this mostly means that the new raid, the Vault of Incarnations, opens its gates. And the Mythic Plus dungeons also start in the first season.
It remains to be seen which classes will do well in the upcoming raid and the eight dungeons. Based on current data and the different talents and abilities of the classes, the theory crafters have already compiled an animal list. This does not show how much DpS the respective playgrounds will achieve, but rather how important and popular the specs will be in their opinion. In addition to DpS, important buffs and possible utility skills also play a major role.
Animal list in Vault of Incarnations
Despite the already announced (small) nerfs for the demon hunters, according to Theorycrafter, they remain the most important DpS class. That is of course also up to Chaos Brand, with which they increase the magic damage of their opponents. According to the experts, no class will perform really badly. Specs like the Tressicherungs-Hunter, which were far below recently, are moving closer to the other ways of playing due to the adjustments in past hotfixes.
Tier List in Mythic Plus Dungeons
In the dungeons, the field spreads a little further. Helpful abilities and potential area damage play a bigger role here – both are traditionally more difficult to balance than single target damage in raids. But here, too, the field has already moved much closer together – for example through nerfs on the demon hunter or various class buffs.
Of course, the animal lists should be treated with caution. In Dragonflight, too, the skill of a player is much more important than the theoretical potential of a class. In addition, these lists are designed for the highest levels of difficulty. The vast majority of players will be able to succeed with any possible class combination.
