Enhancer is way stronger than this picture suggests (same goes for Feral).
The "picture" is based off of data though.
I ended up swapping from Arcane to Fire around level 54, and it makes me wish that Arcane was better. Fire just seems so much more useful.
BM hunter fell even lower, and with zero buffs in 9.1Lol@blizzbalance
sad for feral and survival hunter..
Where is havoc? Still bad?
This article, with it's weekly repeats, becomes less and less relevant every week.90% of the player base has gotten their clear of CN at whatever level they personally desire. Some may be still working towards more, but for those folks, it's not like they're going to change classes at this point to do it, they're already fully invested in their role.Add in that you're parsing the numbers put up by the top 5% of CN-M clears, and it's even less surprising that there is no movement. Those who are capable and willing to put up those sorts of parses have done so, it's the same people doing the same things, there is not going to be a massive increase in skill or a influx of new players into that meta group at this point, it's established.Retire this article and stop with the pseudostats. You're harming the game by pushing a meta, for no actual benefit.
Arms Warrior OP. Should be #24!
Why are these even relevant anymore without buffs or nerfs to any spec? The entire "overall dps chart" is skewed by what classes pad the most on fights like Council and Stone Legion General. Include Boss a boss damage chart if you want a more accurate spec comparison. Don't bother with this list otherwise because it gives an inaccurate representation of quiet a few classes' dps.
stop 👏 including 👏 council 👏
Pretty sure these charts are why my survival Hunter friend gets kicked from random +5s even though he has almost has KSM!This is why Blizzard talk about ‘community perception’ being bigger than the numbers difference. Even if every class is perfectly balanced, half the classes will be 1-12 and the other half 13-24.I hope survival get seen to be buffed, just so people give them a fair chance. After all, it is 1 of only 2 melee specs that bring BL so incredibly useful.
At best, this article is useless. At worst, it is actively misleading for people who don't understand where or how these numbers are derived and their significance (or lack thereof) to them as a player. It's why every week you see people crying about how under-powered their spec is and referencing this chart, saying they need buffs and why oh why won't blizzard listen, when ironically those specs are actually in quite good condition and are perfectly fine.In summary, this chart is not relevant in any way to 99% of the people who look at it - please stop promoting it.
This is why people don't even look at an individuals own achievements, this game is getting more cookie cutter and spec of the month as it goes on and on. Way to go Blizzard.
Can anyone know when the first rankings related to patch 9.1 will appear? :) Probably the druid will be hit hard and I am looking for something in his place :)
Articles like this are one of the reasons PUGs will refuse players not playing the "meta" even in lower keys... Wowhead, we love you guys, but please stop contributing to this nonsense.
