A full month has passed since the release of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. Although the time is not long, it has accumulated a lot of new meta data. And this data is enough for us to compare all the classes in Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum, and Eye of Eternity. Who came out on top and who was destined to be eliminated? The following is a specific analysis of the top-ranked DPS Classes in the first phase of WoW WOTLK Classic.
Although the WotLK pre-patch has been out for a while now, WoW Classic servers in all regions are almost full every day. And every day there are players who buy Death Knights.
There are two main reasons why this happens. The first reason is not hard to guess, and that is that Death Knights is a new kind of class introduced in WoW WotLK Classic. Many people want to experience their true strength right away. The second reason is that many people are aware of the fact that they are very powerful in WotLK Classic.
Aside from Unholy Death Knights remaining one of the strongest picks, another class is even better at DPS. That is the Warlock. As of now, Demo Warlock has the best DPS stats among all classes in Phase 1.
Affliction Warlock spent most of the time behind the Unholy DK in third place. But there are exceptions in some cases. For example, in some encounters, it can easily spread the dots. With this advantage, Affliction Warlock’s DPS data will even exceed the Unholy DK and Demo Warlock.
We can clearly see the specific scores for the above three classes on warcraftlogs.com. Demonology Warlock temporarily took first place with a score of 108. Unholy Death Knight was second with a score of 107. And Affliction Warlock ranked third with a score of 106.
Since most of the remaining classes are basically similar in strength, they are usually judged based on their specific performance in encounters. Below are some of the top rankings. The Assassination Rogue ranked fourth with a score of 104. Enhancement Shaman ranked fifth with a score of 102. And another class, which had the same score of 102 was Rogue spec, Combat.
In addition to the above, the following classes are listed in descending order:
- Frost Death Knight – 101
- Arcane Mage -100
- Balance Druid – 100
- Survival Hunter – 99
- Destruction Warlock – 98
- Fire Mage – 97
- Elemental Shaman – 95
- Marksmanship Hunter – 94
- Shadow Priest – 94
- Feral Druid – 91
In general, those classes that are in the first stage but have scores below 100 are actually because they are very dependent on certain aspects of data. Although their performance is not outstanding so far, if their equipment gets better and better in the later stage, their DPS stats will also get higher and higher.
If you want to equip these classes with better equipment faster, you can choose to buy the equipment directly with World of Warcraft WotLK Classic Gold. If you’re worried about not having enough gold, you can head to IGGM.com to buy WOTLK Gold and learn more useful tips.
Heroes That Can Be Expected In The Later Period
Although Feral Druid’s performance is also very good enough to participate in the evaluation of Phase 1 with other classes, but Druid’s bleeding is not so dependent on armor penetration, which does not meet the requirements of this evaluation. So, this class is still worth looking forward to.
Next is the Fury Warrior and Retribution Paladin. None of them currently score particularly high, at 85 and 84, respectively. However, it is only a matter of time for them. Like I mentioned before, if players can buy enough good gear for them with WOTLK Classic Gold, they can get stronger and stronger.
Stick To PVP
In WoW esports in 2022, especially in WOTLK Classic, it’s not hard to find Frost Mages, Arms Warriors, and Subtlety Rogues dominating this expansion’s Arena.
But when you use these specs as DPS in raids, you’ll find that their damage tends to be lower than other specs, and sometimes even lower than tanks. However, if you still enjoy playing these specs and want to make the most of them, you can choose to play them in PvP.
If you happen to roll a Fury Warrior or a Retribution Paladin in the middle of a raid, you’re bound to break down especially. But after you’ve completed the raids and unlocked all of the achievements, you might as well try out the newly released Dragonflight pre-patch.
In this expansion, you can not only experience the missing BIS gear in Heroic+ dungeons and 10-player raids but also enjoy the buffed Ulduar gear. These gears can give all of your classes a huge DPS boost.
