I’m sorry but this post is way too early to be posted and a bit disingenuous. Nobody is really geared enough to say how each class has been performing also we havent experienced enough of the affixes. Players don’t have their best legendaries. All this post will do is hurt players, people will avoid holy priest and paladins because of rankings like this. Also to then say in some of the class write ups better luck in season 2 is just infuriating. It’s been one week. These rankings mean nothing.
Druid as the frontrunner? Have you even checked warcraftlogs rankings? https://www.warcraftlogs.com/zone/statistics/25#class=Healers
@ restoration shaman verdict:Riptide's HOT doesn't heal for much. In fact, you don't even factor it into your healing. It is just there to proc your Necrotic Wake at best. Out of combat healing of your party is stronger than this HOT. Shamans are not Druids :)
This is simply not the truth, at least not the truth for CN players.In CN servers, shamans are been way too underestimated cos they cannot dispel poison and disease and for most DPS and tank players (tank paladin, tank monk, dps druid e.g.), they just don't remember to help dispel those debuffs. Cos of this, the most popular heal spec in CN servers are always resto druids and holy paladin cos they are simple and well accepted.
Lol pallies on the lower tier, that’s funny.
I genuinely feel bad for any monk that takes Enveloping Breath because of this guide. It gets out performed by the one off sludgefist (Tear of Morning) or even the one from torghast (Clouded Focus) would be far more optimal for mythic plus. However, the AToTM is an insane gap closer for mythic plus. You claim mana is the issue but you already have to essence font almost every pack in a high key (10+) and if you're running invoke chi ji + rising mist it's a no brainer that you'd pick the legendary that best synergies with those talents. I agree that this guide feels rushed. It's impossible to tell what classes will be the best until the gear drops and +15s become more farmable. EDIT: I misinterpreted Enveloping Breath for the Thunder Focus Tea legendary. I still don't see eye to eye on the AToTM hate but at least it doesn't cost 1/4 of our mana this expansion to fistweave so I'm happy. --Happy holidays hope everyone gets nice loot from their vault (=
If Holy Priests do not get more utility they should be doing SIGNIFICANTLY more HPS than all other healers, like 5x more or something.I love playing my Holy Priest and it's the only main I've ever had for 16 years of playing this game, and even though I do not do much M+ it would be nice to feel wanted when I do.
i look forward to this guide's nonsense causing priests to be passed up for m+ groups left and right, despite many of us having been healing keys all week with no problems whatsoever. these ranking guides so early on just encourage narrow minded toxicity in a portion of the game that already oozes it.
Currently playing Holy Paladin. The issue I have is not the lack of CDs, or throughput or HP generation to keep up multiple targets. The issue is that 99% of the dungeons are incredibly more difficult for melee comps than range. Since I HAVE to be in melee, that makes my job twice as hard to be honest. Some fights I have to just back away and range heal which is super no-no for Paladin and very inefficient.That is a very important fact that its left out of the loop in this analysis.
