About the Beta Tier List

Our analysis provides an estimate of the current Mythic+ meta with weeklyupdates every Monday on the website and every Sunday live on stream,until Season 1 arrives. However, it is important to remember that there will bemany more changes, and what you see is not the final product. Instead, it isa progression of how each specialization performs from the start of the beta to theactual season release.

Please note that anything I say is purely subjective and represents my opinion.However, it is an educated guess based on numerous hours of Beta testing and extensivediscussions with some of the best theory crafters from each of their specs.If you have a different opinion, that is perfectly fine. I will be happy toanswer any questions in the comment section. After the Beta testing is completed,we will compile all the data and create the official Tierlist of Season 1.Thank you for reading, and enjoy!

1.1.

Criteria of the Tier List

This tier list was created based on the strength of each DPS specializationduring Beta testing for the upcoming Season 1 [11.0] of Mythic+. The rankingsare determined by the toolkit and raw damage each spec provides to Mythic+ groups.To fully understand the rankings, it is important to understand thedifference between each damage profile and the significance/sync of each class's toolkitwith other party members. Lastly, different dungeons require different sets of damage patterns;some require more single-target, while others require you to have much morefocused AoE damage; all of this can bump some classes higher than others:

  • Damage is the most important major factor to rank the DPS classes; mass AoE,burst AoE, sustain AoE, single-target, 2-target, 3-target, and spread-cleavedamage are among the types of damage profiles we examine.
  • Classes with unique party-wide buffs will always be rewarded. An exampleof such is Druid's Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (1) Mark of the Wild.
  • Classes with high survivability, self-sustain, or immunities will addadditional value to the rankings.
  • Another feature worth mentioning is the importance of priority-target damage andfunnel damage, often undervalued in Mythic+, which speeds up the whole dungeon ifexecuted correctly. Specs can earn extra "points" by having such a damage profile.

1.2.

A Final Warning

  • It is incredibly important to emphasize that just because a DPSspecialization is low in the tier list, it does not mean that you should ignoreit completely.
  • For the vast majority of cases, you should choose to bring the better player,not the better specialization. That does not mean you never need to think aboutyour Mythic+ group composition or disregard the meta, just that most of thetime, player skill will be more important than the difference between classes.
  • Remember that this tier list is based on an average key levels;some specializations gain significantly more value on the higher-end bracket compared to thelower-end bracket because of their damage profile.
  • This tier list, unlike many others, is not constant; someclass's placements will go up or down depending on key level, group composition,affix combinations, or dungeon differences. We will continue toupdate this tier list every time there is a change, all theway up to Season 1's launch and beyond.

Please keep in mind that what you're about to read is a preliminary iteration of the 11.0Season 1 tier list in The War Within expansion, and it WILL change before the season is released. Nothing written here is aguarantee or promise. All opinions are subjective and should be taken with a grain of salt.I update this tier list every Sunday at 14:00 CEST live on my stream,before being uploaded on the website. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask.

Arcane Mage

Patch 11.0 update: Arcane Magereceived a massive amount of changes, 2 brand new Hero Talents -Spellslinger and Sunfury, as well as a new tier-set.The 2-piece increases the damage of Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (2) Arcane Blast and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (3) Arcane Barrageby 6%, while the 4-piece enables Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (4) Arcane Blast or Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (5) Arcane Barrageto have a 5% chance to make your next Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (6) Arcane Barrage deal20% increased damage and generate 4 Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (7) Arcane Charges.

Arcane Mage is currently one of the best DPS specs across allkey levels as its burst damage profile is one of the best in the game, often unmatched.Their single-target is the highest among all classes, they have some of the bestparty-wide utility and mob control, and on top of this, are one of the mostdurable specs in the game. Look no further, this is one of the best-performingclasses within our Beta testing, which is likely to receive some sort of nerfsbefore the expansion goes live.

Fire Mage

Patch 11.0 update: Fire Magereceived a massive amount of changes, 2 brand new Hero Talents -Frostfire and Sunfury, as well as a new tier-set. The 2-pieceincreases the damage of your Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (22) Phoenix Flames by 10%, which increasesto 25% on its primary target. In addition, your 4-piece bonus triggers afterdealing damage, giving Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (23) Phoenix Flames a 10% chance to return to you,refunding 1% of the cooldown on Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (24) Phoenix Flames and granting you6% increased spell damage for 10 sec.

Moving forward to The War Within, Fire Mage will not only beone of the best-ranged options but also competitive in lower-end keys, where theypreviously struggled, especially when playing Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (25) Mastery: Ignite builds. The new interactionwith Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (26) Living Bomb allows you to have a strong AoE burst, which helps youcombat classes with extreme frontload damage and lesser sustain. Additionally, thecurrent Fire playstyle allows you to maintain high mobility while performing your rotation,retains strong durability, and, like every Mage spec so far, has one of thebest group-wide Mythic+ utilities. As it stands right now, this is one of the best specs.

Augmentation Evoker

Patch 11.0 update: Augmentation Evokerreceived a fair share of changes leading to the The War Within expansion,along with two brand-new Hero Talents - Chronowarden /Scalecommander and a new tier-set. The 2-piece bonus will increaseMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (41) Upheaval damage by 30%, which further increases your nexttwo Eruption casts by 30%. Additionally, the 4-piece bonusallows Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (42) Ebon Might to increase your primary stats by an additional0.4% of your own every 2 sec it remains active, up to 2%.

Augmentation Evoker is looking fantastic in the currentBeta build, as it seems developers are sacrificing some of their "overpowered"support capabilities (buffing allies) to enhance personal damage. Yes, you will bejust as useful to your allies, with great utility, good mob control, and furtherbolstering their DPS/defensive profiles, but this time, you will do moredamage yourself. On top of this, they have gained a few more defensiveoptions, depending on the choice of Hero Talents, and maintain excellent mobility.Overall, we are delighted with the spec's current performance and expectit to be one of the strongest DPS choices in the upcoming The War Withinexpansion.

Affliction Warlock

Patch 11.0 update: Affliction Warlockreceived a complete rework, paired with 2 brand new Hero Talent choicesin Hellcaller/Soul Harvester, and a new tier-set. The 2-piece willincrease the damage of Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (70) Malefic Rapture by 5% and its critical strikechance by 10%, while the 4-piece enables Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (71) Malefic Rapture to have a chanceto increase the damage dealt by your Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (72) Agony, Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (73) Corruption andMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (74) Unstable Affliction by 15% for 8 sec.

The complete overhaul of Affliction Warlock has made them a menace in thecurrent beta iteration, excelling in high single-target, fantastic burst, and sustainedAoE damage. Previously one of the weakest specs, they are now among the strongest, withmuch more flexibility in builds — a strong single-target build, amazing hybrid options,and heavy AoE if needed. Additionally, they are now more durable and have better utility(especially if you choose Hellcaller's Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (75) Curse of the Satyr 2-in-1Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (76)Curse) and overall have a new rotation rather than the boringMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (77) Seed of Corruption spam.

Frost Death Knight

Patch 11.0 update: Frost Death Knightreceived significant attention at the start of Beta testing and, like every specializationso far, inherited 2 brand new Hero Talents - Deathbringer /Rider of the Apocalypse and a new tier set. The 2-piece enables all Runic Powerspending abilities to deal 8% more damage, while the 4-piece triggers whenconsuming Runic Power, giving a chance to increase your Strength by 10% for8 sec.

In the current stage of Beta testing, Frost Death Knight is already muchstronger compared to its Dragonflight version. Not only do they have a muchmore powerful burst, but their sustained damage also appears to be in better shape.In addition, their Hero Talents further bolster their strong defensive profile,while the most recent rework of the Death Knight class talent tree allows themto add even more unique party-wide utility (e.g., Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (92) Vestigial Shell). Overall,we are quite happy with the performance of Frost Death Knight and look forwardto the start of the season.

2.8.1.

Cons

Although Frost Death Knight is in great shape, for them to be considered atop contender, a further damage increase must occur.

Elemental Shaman

Patch 11.0 update: Elemental Shamanreceived a much-needed rework, new raid utility, two new Hero Talentschoices - Farseer and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (105) Stormbringer, as well as a new tier set.The 2-piece bonus increases Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (106) Elemental Blast and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (107) Earthquake damage by 25%,while the 4-piece bonus rewards you with a chance of 5% increased critical strike chanceand 10% increased critical damage every time you spend maelstrom.

The complete rework of Elemental Shaman combined with the introduction of the brandnew Hero Talent choices in The War Within and unique raid utility - Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (108) Skyfury,transformed the specialization into one of the most well-rounded ranged choices in the currentiteration of Beta. Additionally, the spec received better defensiveness - Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (109) Stone Bulwark Totem,Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (110) Seasoned Winds and brand new utility which fits perfectly for Mythic+ content -Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (111) Elemental Resistance and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (112) Jet Stream. Combined with their incrediblyburst-oriented damage profile, they are in one of the best states they have ever been.Additionally, their single-target damage is amazing, as well as their sustained damage even withoutmajor cooldowns. We will monitor the performance of Elemental Shaman throughoutBeta and update it in case of any other major changes.

2.9.1.

Cons

One of the main struggles of Elemental Shaman is the lack of spread cleavedamage if you are opting to play the Lightning Build (default build in the next season for now).Additionally, your 2-target / 3-target damage profile is at most mediocre in this state. However,keep in mind that you are fantastic everywhere else.

Unholy Death Knight

Patch 11.0 update: Unholy Death Knightreceived massive changes since the start of the Alpha/Beta testing, alongsidebrand new Hero Talents - Rider of the Apocalypse / San'layn,and a new tier set. The 2-piece will passively increase the damage of your minionsby 8%, while the 4-piece will trigger once you summon a minion, furtherincreasing your Haste by 2% up to 8% for 8 sec.

After many rounds of changes, both buffs and nerfs, Unholy Death Knightis still in great shape, with competitive single-target damage, retaining its signaturestrong AoE burst and a good sustained damage profile off-cooldowns. Although for ashort while they were considered one of the most "overpowered specs" in Beta, afterthe most recent nerfs, they are now quite in line with the top contenders for that spot.Still, they will benefit from the general Death Knight tree rework, addingbrand new utility under their belt (Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (132) Vestigial Shell) and further increasingtheir strong defensive profile. Overall, we are happy with the performance ofUnholy Death Knight and we will monitor for further changes.

2.10.1.

Cons

The biggest drawback of this specialization is that you can only fully unleash*ts maximum potential by perfectly managing your big cooldowns, which is onlypossible when playing with a pre-made group. The ramp-up for the exceptionally strong AoE profile must be planned to get the most out of the specialization.

As always,damage is one of the major factors to consider for specs, so look no further; thisclass will not disappoint with both sustained damage and burst damage. Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (146) Explosive Shot'suncapped damage capabilities are exceptional while maintaining amazing single-target output.All in all, one of the most rounded specs in the current Beta iteration, and we are hopefulthey will retain their strength until the release of Season 1 of Mythic+ in The War Within.

Good Choices

2.13.

Demonology Warlock

Patch 11.0 update:.Demonology Warlock received a healthy amount of changes, paired with2 brand new Hero Talent choices - Diabolist /Soul Harvester and a new tier set. The 2-piece bonus increases the primarydemon's damage by 5% and your Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (156) Shadow Bolt damage by 50%.The 4-piece bonus enables Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (157) Shadow Bolt to have a chance to enrage yourprimary Felguard, increasing the damage of their nextMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (158) Legion Strike by 300%.

Demonology Warlock received a good amount of changes through theAlpha and Beta cycles, making its current performance excellent. Although theirdamage profile is not one of the highest, they are well-rounded and can excelat any mob count. Keep in mind that we still have a few weeks until the expansionlaunches, so numbers will likely be tuned by then, and there could be furtherrotational changes. In terms of utility, they will keep their unique Mythic+ packagewhile being more durable than the previous version of the last expansion. Overall,we would like to see further changes for Demonology Warlock beforewe make a final judgment.

2.13.1.

Cons

Further damage increases across all aspects and perhaps a faster ramp-updamage.

Fury Warrior is looking fantastic so far on the Beta servers. Not onlydo they have one of the strongest bursts among all melee specs, but they also havea great sustained damage profile. With several sets of cooldowns, all under oraround 90 seconds, they allow for amazing frontload bursts across all keylevels. Sadly, their Mythic+ toolkit remains mostly the same, with Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (178) Shockwavenow being easier to talent, which can help with further mob control. Overall, we arehappy with the performance of Fury Warrior and will monitor further developmentfor any changes.

Cons

Outside of their strong Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (179) Battle Shout buff, their Mythic+ toolkit is oneof the weakest compared to the rest of the DPS specializations.

Assassination Rogue

Patch 11.0: Assassination Roguereceived a healthy amount of changes leading up to the The War Withinexpansion, along with two brand-new but disappointing Hero Talents - Deathstalker/ Fatebound and a new tier-set. Their 2-piece bonus will trigger once theirbleeds deal damage, granting a chance to gain Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (186) Vile Tincture for 8 sec,increasing poison damage by 1% per stack (up to 10 stacks). Additionally,the 4-piece bonus will trigger once they have 5 or more stacks ofMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (187) Vile Tincture, causing Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (188) Garrote, Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (189) Rupture, andMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (190) Crimson Tempest to deal 10% increased damage.

Although Assassination Rogue lacks an instantaneous damage profile,their ramp-up DoT-based gameplay is quite strong. Their priority/single-target damagewill continue to be great going into the The War Within expansion. Theirutility remains excellent, and they will have an even stronger defensive profile.Overall, we believe Assassination Rogue will perform well in higher-level keys,where mobs live longer, while continuing to have moderate damage in lower-level keys,where they are mostly outperformed by classes with better frontload damage.

2.15.1.

Cons

Your burst is quite delayed, but once the mobs live long enough, it is extremely strong.This means in lower-level keys, you might find it difficult to match some of the burstdamage from other classes. However, once the key level is high enough, you will be able tocatch up and potentially surpass them.

Subtlety Rogue

Patch 11.0: Subtlety Roguereceived minor changes leading to the The War Within expansion,followed by two brand-new but disappointing Hero Talents - Deathstalker /Trickster and a new tier-set. The 2-piece allows Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (211) Symbols of Deathto increase the damage of the next Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (212) Secret Technique by 20%, whilethe 4-piece enables Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (213) Secret Technique to increase the damage of any otherfinishing move by 16% for 7 sec.

Aside from the impressive Rogue's utility package, Subtlety Roguealso delivers consistent damage with great on-demand bursts. Sadly, the rotation has not changedmuch as the newly introduced Hero Talents are quite disappointing. Still,the spec has no shortcomings apart from the fact that it does not compete with thebest-performing classes in terms of raw damage output. Do not sleep on Subtlety Rogue;if they tune their Hero Talents or spec-specific talents correctly, they wouldbe in phenomenal shape.

2.16.1.

Cons

Lack of interesting Hero Talents that change the rotation/gameplayand introduce a breath of freshness. There are still quite a few bugs surrounding thespec, making it hard to have an accurate picture of its true performance. Closerto the launch, we will have a much better vision of Subtlety Rogue.

Windwalker Monk

Patch 11.0 update: Windwalker Monkreceived a complete overhaul leading to the The War Within expansion,followed by 2 brand-new Hero Talents - Conduit of the Celestials /Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (228) Shado-Pan and a new tier set. The 2-piece will enable Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (229) Tiger Palmto increase the damage of your next melee ability by 5%. In addition, the4-piece allows any other melee ability to increase the damage of your nextMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (230) Tiger Palm by 25%, stacking up to 6 times. 15%of Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (231) Tiger Palm's damage is dealt to nearby enemies, reduced beyond5 targets.

The complete overhaul of Windwalker Monk specific talents for The War Within,left them in a much better spot than they were in the previous expansion. They will retain theirpowerful burst damage (both single-target and AoE), which has been a key featureof the specialization since its inception. It is important to note thatthe utility package of this specialization is among the best in Mythic+, and it hasone of the highest survivability rates. In addition, Haste scaling was added,which should dramatically help Windwalker Monk scale as gear improves,something the spec has always struggled with later in the expansion. Overall, the spec is versatile enough with high-burst capabilities,good single-target damage, and most importantly one of the best party-wide utility(both offensive and defensive) to tackle any Mythic+ situation.

2.17.1.

Cons

A few concerns about their off-cooldown damage profile must be raised as it isquite mediocre compared to the rest of the specializations.

Retribution Paladin has seen a fair share of changes throughoutthe Beta cycles, with one of the most notable changes being a reworkof how their Mastery works. Although their current damage profile is not as impressiveas it was in the last couple of seasons in Dragonflight, theystill possess one of the best group-wide utilities for a DPS (though no more Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (262) Retribution Aura),which is an invaluable asset for anyone who wants to play this spec. Additionally, itoffers excellent defensive options in case of danger and great damage output. Overall,Retribution Paladin performs above average, and the only way toimprove further is to add more raw damage.

2.20.1.

Cons

It is still a significant concern that the spec lacks diversification, leadingto severe limitations in capabilities. If you specialize in single-target,you won't perform as well in AoE, and vice versa. Unfortunately, hybridoptions are still a concern, which could adversely affect their Mythic+ performance.Having to choose and sacrifice without any middle ground is adisheartening situation for any DPS class.

Patch 11.0 update: Arms Warriorreceived a healthy amount of changes through the Alpha and Beta cycles, brand-newHero Talents - Slayer / Colossus, and a new tier set.The 2-piece will enable Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (277) Mortal Strike and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (278) Cleave to increase thedamage of your next Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (279) Overpower by 10%.

The Rage changes combined with the Arms Warrior specific talentadjustments have put the spec in a much better position compared to the previousexpansion. Their damage profile is one of their strongest assets as they currentlyhave great single-target, 2-target, low-count, and mass-AoE damage. Although theirutility will remain mostly the same, we believe that if this spec can be pairedwith melee physical damage-oriented classes, it can climb the ladder even further.Overall, we are happy with how Arms plays so far and we are looking forward tothe next rounds of changes.

2.21.1.

Cons

Outside of their strong Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (284) Battle Shout buff, their Mythic+ toolkit is one of theweakest compared to the rest of the DPS specializations.

Beast Mastery Hunter

Patch 11.0 update: Beast Mastery Hunterreceived a ton of changes leading to the The War Within expansion,including brand new Hero Talents - Dark Ranger / Pack Leader,and a new tier-set. The 2-piece bonus will allow Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (291) Barbed Shot to furtherincrease your pet's attack speed by 5%, while the 4-piece bonus willenable your pet's attacks to have a 10% chance to increase all pet damageyou deal by 10% for 10 sec.

The current Beta iteration of Beast Mastery Hunter plays similarly toprevious iterations, which will disappoint some and delight others. They now havemuch better survivability, thanks to the general Hunter's tree redesign.While their single-target damage is strong, their sustained damage, especiallyAoE, is lackluster. We are hopeful that in the coming weeks, those issues will be addressed.

2.22.1.

Cons

Lack of raw consistent AoE damage. Pet interaction is still an issue, given thefact that almost all of your damage comes from pet attacks, it is something that shouldbe permanently fixed. Playing Siege of Boralus felt terrible as pets areeating frontals and keep resetting on the last boss.

Balance Druid

Patch 11.0 update: Balance Druidreceived a massive amount of changes through the Beta cycles, paired with2 brand new Hero Talent choices - Elune's Chosen /Keeper of the Grove and a new tier set. The 2-piece will increasethe damage of Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (301) Starsurge by 8% and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (302) Starfall by10%.

Balance Druid is one of the specs that has seen the most changesthroughout Alpha/Beta, and for the better. Although this spec maynot appear impressive in lower-end keys, it becomes increasingly formidable as thekey level increases. If you use your cooldowns effectively in Mythic+, you can achieveexceptionally high damage, both in AoE and single-target scenarios. In addition,you will have better survivability in the The War Within expansion while retainingyour valuable utility. Overall, it is disappointing to play Balance Druidon lower levels keys but as soon as you start going higher, you will seemuch better results.

Cons

It takes some time for the spec to ramp up before it can cause significant damage.This means that the performance of the Balance Druid will improve asthe mobs live longer.

Shadow Priest

Patch 11.0 update: Shadow Priestreceived barely any changes since the start of the Beta testing and, like everyspecialization so far, inherited two brand-new Hero Talents - Archon /Voidweaver and a new tier-set. The 2-piece will increase the durationof Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (324) Devouring Plague by 1 sec, while the 4-piece enables Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (325) Devouring Plagueto increase your damage done by 2% for 10 sec (multiple applicationsmay overlap).

For the majority of Dragonflight, Shadow Priest has been consideredone of the most dominant DPS specializations, primarily for their incredibledamage profile, which excels in both AoE and single-target/priority-target damage.However, their damage profile is now more average. Their utility and defensivenessremain strong, which is positive for the spec as both factors are considered great.Overall, we expect further tuning in the coming weeks and hopefully some positive changesfor the Shadow Priest.

2.25.1.

Cons

Although their single-target damage is great, their damage outside of cooldownsis currently on the lower side. Further damage buffs will send this specializationstraight to the top as everything else under their belt is top-notch.

Frost Mage

Patch 11.0 update:Frost Mage enjoyed several rounds of changes, paired with2 brand new Hero Talent choices - Frostfire /Spellslinger and a new tier set. The 2-piece increasesMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (340) Ice Lance damage by 8%, while the 4-piece enables thedamage dealt by Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (341) Fingers of Frost's enhanced Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (342) Ice Lances toinvoke a Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (343) Frigid Pulse, dealing Frost damage to nearby targets(reduced damage beyond 8 targets).

Frost Mage is currently in a sweet spot between"fun-to-play" and overall great shape, as the balance between all powersseems to be equal. Not only are you one of the most durable DPSspecializations in the current Beta servers, but you also have one of thegreatest Mythic+ utilities coming from a DPS and a good damage output, bothsingle-target and AoE. Speaking about damage output, outside of their majorcooldowns (Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (344) Icy Veins), your damage is still relatively good. Dependingon the key levels, you will be able to maintain that for every pack (the higherthe key, the easier it gets as the mobs live longer). Overall, we like how thisspec plays out and the current flow of the package it brings to the table, and weare excited to play it!

2.26.1.

Cons

Although Frost Mage synergizes well with all caster comps, they still lack theraw damage output to be considered a top pick. If further damage buffs occur, look nofurther for the next top-tier candidate.

Feral Druid is entering the The War Within expansion witha fresh overhaul of the general Druid talents, as well asspec-specific ones, leaving them with a better flow of rotation (less spammy/floodedin AoE compared to the previous expansion). They will have better defensive optionsand retain their great party-wide utility. Their main concern is raw damage outputas they are nowhere near as competitive compared to the majority of the DPSspecializations. Once that is resolved, we are sure Feral Druid will climbmuch higher.

Havoc Demon Hunter

Patch 11.0 update:Havoc Demon Hunter received minor changes, paired with2 brand new Hero Talent choices - Aldrachi Reaver /Fel-Scarred and a new tier-set. The 2-piece will increase the damageof Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (379) Blade Dance by 20%, while the 4-piece enablesMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (380) Chaos Strike to deal 20% increased damage and to have25% chance to reset the cooldown of Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (381) Blade Dance.

The current performance of Havoc Demon Hunter is quiteunderwhelming in the latest Beta build, but worry not, it is not the finalone. The spec is one of the few classes that did not receive anything major(outside of the Hero Talents), specifically targeting the spec-specifictalents, which leads us to believe that surely something will come out forthem too. Although both Hero Talents are in a somewhat good state,it does not reflect on its current numbers as both damage profiles(single-target and AoE) are among the lowest compared to the rest of thespecs. Overall, a spec with such great utility and defensive profile will beone step ahead of the rest of the specs currently struggling with damage,since it only takes one round of buffs to make them climb the ladder amongthe highest ranks. We are staying positive with Havoc and are hoping forfurther changes.

Enhancement Shaman is currently one of the most neglected damage dealersacross the The War Within Beta as there are barely any changes made for them.Their damage profile mostly remains identical, with some new possible builds appearingon the horizon, but with a much better AoE damage package (especially against more targets)thanks to their Stormbringer Hero Talents - Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (397) Tempest. In addition,a previous weakness of theirs - durability, has been further bolstered following the newexpansion as they have several new ways to tackle dangerous encounters in any scenario -Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (398) Seasoned Winds, Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (399) Stone Bulwark Totem and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (400) Elemental Resistance.Overall, not many changes have been made for Enhancement Shaman and they arestill waiting for further tuning.

2.30.1.

Cons

Although your uncapped damage has been greatly improved, as well as durability, theoverall damage profile fits more within the "average" bracket and the only way to climbhigher is to just get more raw damage.

Outlaw Rogue

2.32.

Outlaw Rogue

Patch 11.0: Outlaw Roguereceived their fair share of changes leading to the The War Within expansion,with two brand-new, yet disappointing Hero Talents - Fatebound /Trickster and a new tier-set. The 2-piece bonus will enable Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (421) Sinister Strike,Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (422) Pistol Shot, and Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (423) Ambush to have a 20% chance to trigger Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (424) Ethereal Rampage,dealing 15% increased damage as Shadow. In addition, the 4-piece bonus -Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (425) Ethereal Rampage, additionally increases the damage of your nextMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (426) Between the Eyes by 6%, stacking up to 3 times.

The current Outlaw Rogue is quite underwhelming as theirdamage profile is slightly on the lower end compared to the rest of theDPS specializations. While they will retain their strong consistent damage,they are still target-capped and have little to no mass AoE burst. Theirdefensive profile will remain unchanged, which makes them one of the mostdurable specs in the game, combined with amazing group-wide utility and mobcontrol. Further tuning on either spec-specific or Hero talents willdetermine their final rankings.

2.32.1.

Cons

Outlaw Rogue will still struggle in heavy AoE scenarios due toits damage target cap being present.

Destruction Warlock

Patch 11.0 update:Destruction Warlock received a complete rework, paired with2 brand new Hero Talent choices - Hellcaller /Diabolist and a new tier set. The 2-piece will focus onMythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (441) Incinerate, increasing its critical strike chance by 20%,as well as increasing Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (442) Conflagrate critical strike chance by25%. In addition, the 4-piece will offer Mythic+ DPS Rankings: Beta Tier List for The War Within (Patch 11.0 / Season 1) (443) Conflagratecritical strikes to trigger 5% increased Fire damage for6 sec.

The complete rotational overhaul for Destruction Warlock will giveplayers a fresh look at how to adapt to their new DPS approach. Unfortunately,the previous king of mass AoE throughout the majority of Dragonflightis no more, as the current Beta iteration of the spec is nowhere near what itused to be. Presently, DPS performance is rather mediocre, hence why we arehopeful that more changes will come its way. Their utility is mostly unchanged,while further strengthening their durability. If you are looking to playDestruction Warlock in The War Within, beware that it isnothing like it used to be, and you will need to get used to the new rotation.

2.33.1.

Cons

Lack of strong sustained damage, lack of overall raw damage, and currentlythe weakest of all Warlock specs. This does not leave a good first impression,and we are hopeful for more changes shortly.
