Patch 7.2.5 has arrived for World of Warcraft, ushering a new epic raid tier to the game. Along with this patch are class changes, in addition to a host of new encounter types. As a result of this, DPS ranking have shuffled. Some classes previously regarded as top-tier has fallen, while previously underpowered DPS have risen to the top.
We have new DPS charts for 7.2.5, and they can be found below.
Note that these charts are circumstantial. DPS is a very difficult thing to quantify, as boss mechanics have various impacts on different classes. In addition, the different classes scale differently depending on gear levels. Nonetheless, the chart below is one of the most accurate at the time of the writing of this article.
The main classes to note are Warlock and Mage. While all three of Warlock’s specs are competitive, Mage is currently in a bad spot unless you play as Frost. Also, Retribution Paladin has fallen quite a bit over the course of the expansion, similar to Shadow Priest.
