As of January 20, 2023, WoW: Wrath of the Lich King Classic heroes can enter the sacred halls of Ulduar to challenge one of the Old Gods. We look back on the first few days and tell you which DpS specialists are rocking the damage statistics.
In mid-January 2023, we looked at the pro tier lists to find out which DpS specialists are likely to rock the new raid instance Ulduar from WoW: Wrath of the Lich King Classic. The first Ulduar ID is now behind us and there are hundreds of thousands of logs that we can use to check the accuracy of the predictions made in the article. Here we go!
The Best DDs in Ulduar (Bosses and Trash)
First, let’s look at the damage dealers, which provide the best damage values across the entire Ulduar instance. As expected, Affliction and Demonology Warlocks are at the top. Fire magicians land in 3rd place and thus perform better than expected – such a strong position was only expected at the end of phase 2. Unholy Death Knights take the nerf quite well (5th place), but have to admit defeat to their Frost colleagues. Backstab villains land in 6th place, well ahead of the disappointing fighters (14th place).
In between are Survival Hunters, Enhancers, Balance Druids, Shadow Priests, Arcane Mages, and Destruction Warlocks. After the combat villain, the specializations then drop noticeably in terms of damage dealt. At the bottom are Subterfuge Rogues, Arms Warriors, and Vengeance Paladins.
Best DDs in Ulduar (bosses only)
If we only look at the statistics from the boss fights, the picture changes. Suddenly assassination villains are in 2nd place and the fighters are at least a little ahead (9th place). Fire mages only land in 6th place, behind the death knight specializations. Destruction warlocks then follow in 7th place. In addition, ferocity druids can catch up with the average well-performing group from the midfield.
Of course, the statistics themselves also differ from boss to boss. For example, while backstab rogues dominate Ignis, Affliction Warlocks can’t keep up with Kologarn. With Hodir, on the other hand, fire magicians are the best. And with General Vezax, even Frost Mages are currently at the top. But how does the picture turn out in your raid? Do you also have warlocks, rogues, fire mages and death knights rocking in Ulduar? Tell us in the comments!
