Analysis of Shadowlands DPS in Heroic Sanctum of Domination - Mythic Opening Week

Frost Death Knight

About the Author

I'm Bicepspump, a semi-hardcore player currently playing on Kazzak. You can often find me on the Death Knight discord discussing rotations and builds, on my stream (B1cepspump), running some juicy Mythic +, or on my youtube channel where I've started doing video guides. Big shoutout to everyone on the Acherus discord that have given me valuable insight through numerous discussions. I take part in writing and optimizing the action priority list for SimulationCraft and continuously test different hypotheses using the SimulationCraft program. Furthermore, I work with the WoWAnalyzer website where I develop modules for the Death Knight specs. Please feel free to contact me on Discord as Bicepspump#6318, I'm always happy to have a healthy discussion! Outside of playing WoW, I work as a data scientist and enjoy playing other games such as Dota 2!

Frost Death Knights jumped hard in the rankings this week but I wouldn't be too alarmed. Frost DKs have a small population which makes them especially vulnerable to large jumps early in a tier. To give an example, not a single Frost DK killed heroic Sylvanas the first week. More than 20 did the following week but didn't perform too well. This boss alone is probably a large reason why Frost dropped so much. I believe as more Frost DKs kill the boss, the rankings will go up and we'll see a rubber-band effect in ways.
