While the tier list might look strange, it's not wrong. The tanks are in the most balanced state they have been in in the last 5 years, if not ever.
While tanks may be balanced for a once, DPS still isn't. There's about 3k DPS difference between first and last class/spec, that equals to around 25% of total DPS difference...
The dps ranking dream. Hell, I'd take a ranking like this between just melee vs ranged.
There are many things I can criticise about Shadowlands and Tanking in General, but Tank Balancing is amazing. It even was amazing with DHs before the fix. You can perfectly do even the highest keys as any tank, its harder but its possible. I have not once felt the obligation to change my Main to a Meta tank even after doing 20s and higher.
Thank you Lincoln for always sounding positive so we don't absolutely get &*!@ on by the community perception every time. We love you Bro.A hopeful prot paladin
This ranking is NOT based on DPS or even m+ because if it was it would look completely different.
And, once again, Prot Warrior is the lowest spec :D
Imagine having the healer spec balanced.I'm glad for tank players. It seems both dps and healers are in the same state as previously, which is basically a few specs totally crushing the meta and the rest struggle behind (hi Disc priest/Holy pal).
Sanctum of Domination raid totally based on magical and physical damage in fact almost 50% magic damage and 50% physical damage so of course all tanks gonna be okay
So my prediction for world first comp is veng and brewmaster since ww and havoc don't seem to be broken enough to be included this tier
Why isn't this more a spec breakdown...instead of calling it a tier list prediction....If everything is in the same category...it really isn't a tier list...
Why create "tier" list if everyone's in the same tier? You might've just it called it "strenghts and weaknesses of tanks in SoD".
Yes while the tier list is very accurate that tanks are incredibly balanced, the niche roles of each tank is overshadowed by whether or not Havoc DH and MW/WW monk viability. If Havoc is complete trash like it was last tier then DH instantly jumps to S+ tier just because 5% increased magic damage is insane for a full raid team. While yes all tanks are viable and will kill all content the underlying problem is still Chaos brand and Mystic touch being on a tank makes higher end raiding super stale. Personally I feel these debuffs should not exist at all and just complicate balance unnecessarily.
