DPS Ranking for World of Warcraft: Shadowlands
After the World of Warcraft: Shadowlands update, the DPS ranking has changed. Here are the classes that do the most damage.
There hasn’t been much change, most of the classes have settled into their respective districts and battled opponents for a row or two. At the moment the fluctuations are mainly due to the fact that a few percentage points are still gained through better gear or playstyles played, especially for the diary of a relevant class.
But overall, the damage has increased significantly. While peaks were just under 10,000 in March, it has now risen to almost 14,000. Even the bottom end of the list is now more than 3,000 DPS.
In particular, the ability to carry a second Legendary is now a huge bonus for many classes. A second legendary effect is an addition to most specializations that alone provide several hundred more DPS.
|2||Frost Death Knight||13.695|
|6||Havoc Demon Hunter||13.422|
|11||Unholy Death Knight||13.002|
WoW Shadowlands DPS Ranking
Winners: The survival hunter caught it especially strong. In the beginning he was still in the midfield, but now he is the strongest class. Frost Death Knights, Retribution Paladins, and Marksmanship Hunters also made significant gains.
At least the shadow priests are still in the top 5, so they haven’t lost much of their original power from the old raid. Even elemental shamans and demolition mages could fight to get back to midfield from the last places.
Losers: Warriors and Beastmastery fighters in particular are far behind and are in lower positions on average. Warriors are only found in the lower half of the list. Exception for hunters.
The bandits also fell a bit, though not as much as the warriors. However, at least assassins and outlaws weren’t in the high ranks before. It’s doubtful they’ll pick up with 9.2.5 or even the new Dragonflight expansion.
Note that some specialties are rarely played even after a long time. Affliction Sorcerers are well below other specs at 5,916 runs, so the numbers there aren’t as significant as those of the more widely played classes.
