Patch 9.1.5, which recently arrived on the live servers, has only a few direct class adjustments, but it can still cause one or the other shift between the play styles. The pact abilities of many classes have been reworked. Whereby... "revised" is probably the wrong word here. In the second interim patch of the WoW expansion Shadowlands, the developers have left it at buffing the respective pact abilities of the underrepresented pacts a bit. Here a few percent, there a few percent and many players feel forced to change the pact as soon as possible.
However, two things should be mentioned here. First, there is no pressure to leave your favorite pact. The differences are usually relatively small and do not really matter to the majority of players. On the other hand, this possibly self-imposed constraint is not so bad anymore. With patch 9.1.5, it is relatively easy to switch back and forth between the pacts as soon as you have reached fame level 80.
Many players took this opportunity to change their home in the Shadowlands. Naturally, the top players were the first to make the switch. Because for them, there's often only one thing that counts: the DpS or healing that comes out in the end. But where do you have to switch to if you want to be at the top of the DpS food chain? We've taken a look at the logs of the absolute top players in terms of DpS and HpS, and we'll tell you which pacts the players who are at the top of DpS and HpS rankings have moved to.
To do this, we look at the logs of the current raid to see the strongest players of each class and spec and check which pact they belong to. In many cases, you can clearly see which pact delivers the most damage. In some cases, however, several pacts are so close to each other that they have to share the top ranks. We'll take a look at all ten bosses and tell you if there are any differences.
And of course, we'll also take a look at the healers. Here we'll limit ourselves to the healing cast. Of course, that's not all: the damage, the utility or any additional cooldowns also play a big role. However, these can hardly be quantified.
Tanks are even more difficult to classify than healers. Do you go by DpS? Or would you rather go by self-healing, damage taken per second, or more elusive stats like the Theck-Meloree index? This alone has been the subject of debate for eons. Because everything has its advantages and disadvantages. We have therefore decided to use the DpS, knowing that it will not paint a complete picture. But at this point in the expansion, survival is hardly a problem for any tank even in the mythic raid, so why not bang out maximum damage?
