    Click Spoilers for information. Scroll over things to see links/tooltips. ^Please vote above^
    This is alot of information so take your time and visit often for updates!

    Information about how the thread works and considerations:

    KEY: A colored * next to something indicates its quality within an RPG GBPO color scheme. A Link with THIS COLOR will need to be opened via right click(open in new tab) otherwise they will replace this page. It has to do with xpoff.com links taking priority within the tab you clicked them on. To avoid losing your place just please manually open These Colored links into another tab. I apologize to anyone colorblind ahead of time.

    All opinions come from my play on toons or alongside toons @ 50ilvl+. I'm classist not racist choose whatever race you think works for your goals. Making test toons before commiting is fine. If a race enables a tier upgrade I will make an exception for arguing bis race.

    What's the difference between 10/11+? In terms of enemy health, there is none. In terms of talents, there might be some. Look at your rotation at 10 and image including the 11 talent, It's as simple as that. BIS 10 and BIS 11 are the same excluding the 11 talent or any spell/item unlock. The real difference is at 12 with every level adding around half a hit more in order to kill the average dungeon mob.

    A friendly reminder: When playing with others please consider how their class plays, teamwork often keeps people happy even if YOU can 1 shot. Kiting to gain glory can become sloppy fast, please do not leave adds for the party to kill unless those adds are low hp and don't crowd control. Skillfully and quickly Communicate complicated maneuvers you might do as you clear the instance to avoid fumbles. If you don't know if you can kite a mob or not without it doing any Crowd Control to players don't kite it! Learn what's kite-able and learn what needs nuking! <3

    Warning about being a newb booster: It is considered VERY RUDE if you're the reason for a customer/LFG members death. Do everything in your power to give the carried a path to the boss. If you do not know how to start a Power Level or are aware of the obstacles involving one please check out the How to set up a Power Level: Retail thread. Please for the sake of the community image don't let others die.

    Feel free to submit runs: If one is not posted I will eventually get around to featuring it in a video. Faster Solo/LFG runs will replace slower runs. if you have a build that isnt featured I will also make a tier listing for c tier+ times of 10 minutes or less either solo or grouped.

    An overview of Best in Slot (BIS) gear as well as other options:
    BIS is mostly Warlord of Draenor(Iron Horde) dungeon WarForged(WF) gear with some exceptions based on class/specialization(spec). Such as Balefire branch** from Waycrest Manor, Blade of Eternal Darkness* from Maraudon and Hunger of the Pack* from Halls of Valor. Your weapons and armor types are listed in the general Spellbook page towards the back default P in-game.

    Noteworthy Blues: SeaBreeze*, Precious Bloodthorn Loop* , MORE TO COME!

    This Thread does not include exploited gear since those items will be fixed eventually. Look around the site/discord for those kind of items.

    What is warforged gear? Warforging/Titanforging is when an item increases in item level through random number generation(RNG). Example would be a level 11 blue at ilvl 36 while its WF counterpart would be ilvl 62. Items cannot Titanforge anymore! A titanforged item, all things considered now-a-days, would be a WF with a tert and or socket. But lets not use that terminology please as it may confuse the community. Historically a players average item level was their level x2-3. With 10.02 this has been increased to x3-4 base and x5-6 with WF.

    What can and can't WF/SOCKET/TERT?
    Only Helm, Neck, Rings, Waist and Wrist can socket+tert+WarForge. Sadly Boots, Chest, Gloves, Legs, Trinket and Weapons can only tert+WarForge. RNGESUS BE WITH YOU.


    What are WF chances? Around 10% for every bonus on top of the last chance. BIS stats/socket/tert is VERY RARE. Solo is 100% blue drop chance. Group loot is divided by party count. A better breakdown of Chances are in this thread. Use a Character Panel addons for better stat display. Check "Addons" section for more information.

    What is a tertiary stat?
    Speed* - Mover faster
    Leech* - Receive healing based on % of damage done
    Avoidance* - Take Less aoe damage
    Indestructible* - Makes gear not take durability damage
    Socket* - Isn't considered tertiary, having its own chance to roll onto gear in addition to tert.


    Bis Gear Disclaimer: It's complicated, you need to farm wod for anything and I mean anything (as long as you can use the secondaries). Just cause an item isn't bis doesn't mean it wont be part of a bis set. Breakpoints and Diminishing Returns can make what seems like a bis item not because the 2nd bis would give more benefit to another secondary. That being said you will see bis lists pop up in discord and even in this thread. Remember that the BP/DR is more important than any item. MW monk is a great example. after 23.5% haste your wasting dps by going anymore haste. But a BIS item in someone's list my have more haste listed. It's relative to your intended goal. Should you choose to revolve around breakpoints you will have a stronger character in general. Should you choose to stack 1 secondary you will just have more of that secondary at the cost of dps. BIS is a perfect mixture of haste/crit/vers/mastery. We're still discovering these perfect mixtures, Explore with us and comment your findings here and on discord. TY!
    An overview on Secondary Breakpoints/Diminishing Returns, Racials, Base Stat Values and Proc Rates:
    Your class/spec might want more or less than 30%. this tier list will eventually contain specific values for each listed spec. There comes a point when more damage stats is less damage compared to speed and better kiting/aoe use. Keep in mind how pathing works and what shortcuts you can take in your runs to better speed clear/boost. I recommend speed gems(green*/blue* 1 of each)/tertiary over other stats when applicable. Speed Tertiary% cap at 10 is 49%. This stacks with other Movespeed% items/spells for more than 49% additional move speed. For a general breakdown of Breakpoints and Diminishing Returns click HERE.
    A breakdown of Racials and Base Stat values can be found Here. Thanks goes to @pokspell for their work making this spreadsheet.
    Here is a thread explaining how the different types of Proc rates work. Thanks goes to @necroaqua

    An overview of Professions:

    Best Flask for all specializations/classes is the reusable 300 Classic Alchemy Flask*. Additional recipes: Rage Potion* Great Rage Potion* Lesser Mana Potion* Swiftness Potion* MORE TO BE ADDED
    Not all enchants work even if they can be applied to gear. Make sure to look before and after. Lets pray 10.1 fixes this! The enchants listed in the old 10's Guide are still relevant for blue items ilvl 50(60neck/cloak) - credit goes to those that worked on it.
    Below a list of the best enchant options for your boosters in WF gear.
    Minor Speed(For speed set ilvl50), Any "Gift of" cloak enchant(ilvl 60)
    Minor Speed(for speed set), Any "Gift of" cloak enchant(ilvl 60)
    Any Accord Ring, Mark of the Hidden Satyr(ilvl 60)
    test
    Northrend Engineering will give you two tinkers worth using, at Northrend Engineering 5 you unlock Flexweave Underlay and Frag Belt; this can crit. At Northrend Engineering 30 you unlock Nitro Boots. Keep in mind Nitro boots has a chance to fail and do massive damage to your toon for approximately 80% of your total health. Location of trainer is in the Northrend Dalaran Engineering building. Feel free to check out other expansions Engineering for wacky items like the Goblin Glider from Pandarian Engineering 25. More in your engineering UI in-game
    As of 10.02 LW Leg Enchants do not work on WF gear.
    I have not tested it but I assume Inscription enchants also do not work on WF gear.
    Interesting information and addons which may enhance your play:
    Method for Skipping WoD Intro to access Garrison 30 minutes faster: Select The Iron Horde at chromie: Use the Blasted Lands Tp instructed in the quest: Abandon The quest: Go Through The Red Dark Portal: Finish a few quests and obtain Garrison Hearthstone. This skip also unlocks the Ashran Portal in the Capital City
    After choosing an Inn for your bunker make sure to build a Bunker(Alliance) and a War-Mill(horde). This will allow the Quest Ogre Ancestry to have a higher chance to upgrade to WF.
    To be prepared is a repeatable quest via the npc Archivist Elysiana in Violet Citadel (TALL Tower up the stairs in Legion Dalaran). Simply don't turn in the quest once you have it and you will receive 2 buffs that work in dungeons; Polish Armor and Holy Enchantment. If you can't see or redo the quest a P-sync with someone that can will phase you in. Holy Enchantment doesn't do much but can proc Elemental Force.
    Before Questing in Legion it's highly recommended that you select the Class Order Hall upgrade which increase upgrade chance for quest items. Each Hall requires you recruit members and do the hour long mission before unlocking the passive to upgrade quest rewards.

    The lower a build in level the higher in damage it tends to do. 16's are fun but not nearly as viable as 10, 11, 12 or even 13.
    I am working on more builds to add to the list. Builds currently not shown are not necessarily bad.

    S Tier Rankings & Logic:_____________________

    S+ 10/11 Guardian Druid: (10.05) Moonfire* coming back into Bear rotation means dead mobs much faster. Thrash** and Swipe** are great aoe. Maul*(@11) and Mangle* are both heavy hitting single target. Swipe** and Moonfire* can be held to Repeat Cast. Regrowth*** will cap heal any player, you only have 4 casts until oom. You have a Dash* and Cat*/Travel*. You have access to all 3 roles in the queue. Going cat form while Guardian is decent single target but fast energy use. Combo points are retained for a short time. Cat Swipe*, Cat mangle*, Cat Bite* and Cat Thrash* is the toolkit available. Bite can do almost 1k.

    Form/set switching macros will cause you to always enter cat form in speed set unless you make multiple sets for bear and cat form buttons. An alt command macro may help condense the action bar bloat. - macro coming shortly.

    ______________________________________________________________________________

    S+ 10/11 Restoration Shaman: Chain Lightning* is the strongest twink aoe but requires stopping to cast more than Arcane and Bear; thus the "*". Ghost Wolf will make up for this.
    GHOST WOLF SET MACROS: You can change the set names to anything in this example I use "Speed" and "ILVL". Just make sure they are the same as your set names. In order for this to work you must make macros for all your other abilities that includes "/Cancelaura Ghost Wolf" otherwise you may not exit Ghost Wolf Video

    -----------------------
    /Equipset ILVL
    /Cast !Ghost Wolf
    Lava Burst, Chain Lightning, and Lightning Bolt can 1 shot trash. @ 11 You get Riptide which will instant cap heal the target. Lightning Shield crits for 80-100 damage. Primal Strike is weak melee as you pass a mob while staying mobile. There are cases when a kited mob will die from a Primal Strike. Don't underestimate its use.

    10 is better than dps 11 due to enchants. Riptide at 11 is not a requirement to heal. Most Shaman go 11 to also play around with the Elemental spec.

    S rank for ilvl55(10) ilvl58(11).
    S+ Rank for 55/58+ ilvl with +175% move speed in Ghost Wolf.

    S- 10-13 Arcane Mage:
    Spam Arcane Explosion*, Arcane Blast**, Arcane Barrage*(11), and or Arcane Missiles*(13). @10Prismatic Barrier* is roughly 20% of HP. Blink* for travel. High Mastery is needed to manage the mana used. You'll still have to drink water. Has Slow Fall* so can skip some dungeons sections. Overflow Energy* is great talent @ 10.

    Thank you @Fungalfury for submitting this run on the Speedrun Thread.

    Best Well Fed Buff: Abyssal-Friend Rissole*

    Best Potion: Lesser Mana Potion*
    Stat Priority: Mastery/Critical Strike* and Mastery/Haste*. A balance of both is best in order to hit a comfortable breakpoint. (Insert mastery/crit/haste breakpoints here)
    **NO REZ** **Arcane intellect**

    I recommend using this Mana Tracker* addon to see how well your mastery is affecting mana regen. It still works despite not being updated since SL.**

    ***ARCANE ORBS CAN GLITCH RANDOMLY - This results in orbs not stacking. Waiting for stacks to fall specs off switching specs from ui might fix. Relogging may also fix.*** This can be game breaking while it's bugged.

    A Tier Ranking Logic:_________________________

    Armory for Restowink

    A+ 10/11 Elemental Shaman: Really great damage with high Mastery but requires stopping to cast. Ghost Wolf can help with getting you to near 175%+ move speed with enough tertiary Speed Stat. (see Resto in S tier for macro).

    Elemental
    is moderately weaker but cooler looking than Restoration. Healing Surge eats mana so if you queue as healer and switch to Elemental be aware of the low mana pool. Elemental needs more than 100% Mastery for chain lightning to be reliably insane on 2-3 target mob packs. 4-5 = Emperor Palpatine's Unlimited Power. A high (80%+) Mastery Elemental is fun but not as easy to play as Resto. Chain Mastery chance is divded by the amount of targets up to 5. Chain Lightning can't proc Mastery on a single target. Lightning Bolt is a better single target despite being less damage per cast than Chain Lightning. @ 11 Elemental gets the Earth Shock Talent allowing use for their Maelstrom resource. Elemental's
    Lightning Shield is decent damage over a period of time and enough hits taken. Resto Shield does more damage. Frost Shock is spammable for decent single target kiting.

    Elemental video has Haste/Mastery gear. (COMING SOON)

    **NO REZ** **NO TEAM BUFFS** **Reincarnation**
    __________________________________________________

    A+/- 10-13 Monk: Monk is the only class in which all 3 spec are viable for Power Leveling. Each with unique pros.

    A10/11 Brewmaster: Has the highest Touch of Death damage. @11 you get Keg Smash (affected by haste). No real downside other than not really standing out, compared to protection tanks Brew is greater damage. 2nd best tanking specialization.

    Stat Priority: Haste*/Mastery*/Critical Strike*/Versatility*
    Best Well Fed: Abyssal-Friend-Rissole*
    Best Potion: Swiftness Potion*


    A+10 Mistweaver: Spinning Crane Kick with the Lifesteal Enchant on a 3.6 speed weapon is super great dps/hps. Allowing even a soft MW to tank any amount of mobs. However Lifesteal can't be placed on bis weapons (currently). Weakish Single target/Boss kill but Rising Sun Kick is a heavy hitter but comes at the cost of forgoing the Tiger Lust talent.
    BP for Haste/Versatility/Critical Strike: 23.5% Haste and as much Versatility as you can get. Critical Strike is okay but doesn't really shine compared to the raw damage of Versatility. Once at 23.5% haste try to avoid it for Critical Strike/Versatility gear instead. -Thanks to @pokspell, The Spin Master" on discord for testing and making this spread sheet. [​IMG]

    Best Well Fed: Boiled Clams*
    Best Potion: Swiftness Potion*


    A12/13 WindWalker: Fist of Fury's damage is the mob packs HP. It can also be used while moving. Roughly a 20 second cd (affected by haste) . You can easily make work of each mob pack and most of the bosses Health. 13 makes fist of fury setup a bit easier with the Power Strikes Talent.

    **Resuscitate @ 13** **NO TEAM BUFFS**

    __________________________________________________
    A- 11/13 Surv Hunter: Raptor Strike is really strong single target. You can't die due to pet tanking and Healing. Depending on your pet type 10% Leech OR 8% Move Speed. Since survival is such a heavily single target spec it can be annoying with alot of big pulls. At 13+ I recommend choosing Wildfire Bomb to help with aoe. Anything above 13 is a dps cut.
    Bis Survival Hunter for Single target is level 11. Bis Survival Hunter multitarget is level 13.

    I recommend Macroing Kill Command with Pet attack for a more direct control of your pets target.

    A 10/11 Fury Warrior: You have 2 options for Fury that stand out compared to higher level warrior. 10 Fury warrior has no Enrage* capability and cannot DW2H*, making 11 the far superior option. With that aside this is how they play. First action should be to Charge* to your target if applicable. Feel free to macro in your Heroic Throw* or a Frag Belt* into a Charge* for better results. Spam Whirlwind* until Execute* is available. @11 You unlock Bloodthirst* and DW2H*. Every 2 Whirlwind* use Bloosthirst*. That's it, have fun! You have access to Hamstring* and Pummel*. DO NOT USE SLAM*!

    Enchant your weapons with 1 Lifesteal** and 1 other - your choice, even another LS
    If using epics you will have alot less damage than blues with LS or
    Elemental Force*.
    Remember to keep
    Battle Shout** up, it's more damage than other party members.

    As posted below here is a 11 Fury Armory. Thank you @Stinkyjesser

    **Berserker Stance** **Taunt** **Battle Shout**
    __________________________________________________

    A 10-12 Holy Priest: Holy Nova* will heal most players in a couple uses as well as deal more damage than most leveling tanks can agro. Shadow Word: Pain* is an instant damage dot that will kill mobs shortly after you Holy Nova* pass them. Power Word: Shield** will x4 targets health. Renew* is instant cast and heals for alot. Spam Mind Blast* and Smite* on bosses.

    12's Holy Nova is alot stronger after a long time building stacks with Rhapsody. This is less damage overall compared to a 10. Holy's base damage is higher than the other 2 specializations making it the more viable option for dps/hps. Overall not the best aoe or single target but multitask Aoe is unique.

    Stat Priority: Critical Strike*/Haste*/Versatility* - keep all even around 30% if possible.
    Avoid Mastery* Base Mastery is enough with Holy Nova* spam. The tiny hot amount goes a long way on a 30+ target. Renew* is better than any amount of Mastery.

    B Tier Ranking Logic:_______________________


    B 13-16 Havoc Demon Hunter: Very niche in that it requires good positioning and fast tabbing to deal with targets. Speed is added to Mastery* with the talent Pursuit*. While Vengence* is better at surviving, Havoc* is better at damage. Both can go ZOOM ZOOM!

    Mastery movement speed for Vengeance is Mastery Percentage / 2.5 and for Havoc it is Mastery Percentage / 3

    Dashing around with 2 stacks of Fel Rush* and also Vengeful Retreat* makes for good mobility. Eye beam* is powerful and has a 40 second cooldown.

    Blade dance* cooldown is affected by haste* and the First Blood* talent. Blade Dance* is physical damage and isn't affected by the Mastery* damage increase.

    Stat Priority: Mastery*/Critical Strike*/Versatility*/Haste*

    **NO REZ** **HAS NO TEAM BUFF**

    **Getting out of the DH starting area is easy to do while staying below 15 if you only do what you have to and kill lesser mobs for quest credit OR get credit whilst dead from an allies kill.**

    I recommend 16 because it has a few more options in terms of dungeons and talents compared to a 13, 14, or 15.

    DH can't be 10 so that's why I say 13-16. A BIS 16 will do about 10% more damage than a BIS 20 of the same spec. Making 20 a viable option if DH is what you want to carry others with. Lower level is more damage but DH talents are very lacking the lower you are, make a few alts to find what works for you.

    __________________________________________________

    B+ 10-16 Protection Paladin: Like a Protection Warrior but with cooldowns on every ability and no dot on enemies. Judgment* hits pretty hard when it critical strikes. Consecration* damage isn't the best and is more meant to help agro. Steed* is nice for getting around. (Reworking explanation shortly)

    B- 10-16 Protection Warrior: Has many options within its talent toolkit. This section is going to be a bit longer because Protection Warrior is increasingly malleable the higher you. Below are a few spoilers to point out several builds to consider. 13 possible BIS for Revenge. Can go defensive build to gain damage through defensive stats enabling a Shield Spike, Riposte, Critical stick, Mastery, Dodge, Parry, Block, Revenge, Deep Wounds and slowing build. This sadly requires at least level 13 for unlocking Revenge; the centerpiece of Protections power.

    You’ve neglected to mention fury warriors? You must be trying to keep it secret. 50% bonus move speed after killing, spamming ww with life stealing enchant, unkillable. Beyond S tier

    @Stinkyjesser added fury take a look give your opinion
    I still need to include a video. Fury damage way to low to be considered S tier.

    More-or-less done updating it today. got lots done, check changelog.

    It looks good. Definitely curious how other characters damage looks so ill have to look into that! Obviously I'm near bis so it's skewed compared to a BoA lvl 11. But running dungeons is basically nonstop WW spam with +60% move speed always up. I'll see if I can post a video to tag in the list.

    Edit: Oh yeah, Guardian is OP! We love to see it. Honestly, I think Guardian is in it's own tier. Resto (cast and move speed), fury (single tar dps), and arcane (cast st/lower aoe, mana?) seem to all have their downsides where Guardian doesn't. What do you think?

    Guardian is the jack of all trades. Normally such a thing would suffer somewhere within a build. However Bear doesn't suffer at all from being well rounded. It has everything any class has and more. in fact it just gets better in 10.05 with the re-addition of Moonfire to baseline bear.

    Do you have any insight on Blood DK if it's any good this low for solo or do they not have much tools in the 10-15 range? I'd guess Mastery/Verse(never played Blood, just messed around on Frost).

    Hmmm yes this class...I do have a few words about DK in general. It isnt good dmg. the toolkit is lacking in all specs. that being said it is going to be making 2 appearances in the C tier meme build category I'll be adding one day

    @Mattymatt726 here is a more detailed answer:
    Blood is good def I suppose but its real lacking compared to any other tanks. At 15/16 it seems to slightly begin to shine within its rotation. Sadly the damage isn't good and the need to be standing in a D&D for Heart Strike to aoe is overall a bad mechanic. Though the Crimson Scourge(25% chance) Talent does help with resetting CD of D&D. Blood boil being on a short CD of 6.3(2 stacks) at 19.06% haste isn't that bad. -Blood will play like a op normal tank.

    Frost at 13 is actually very fun with crit/haste/vers stat priority or haste/crit/vers. Howling blast is a fun spam mechanic with enough crit for bigger hits or haste for Rune-speed regeneration Honorable shoutout to howling blast for being lowkey open world best farming ability for hyperspawns. Frost will play like an OP normal player that may or may not agro off normal tanks through aoe spam.

    Unholy is the weakest of the 3 spec. With a focus on weak aoe spread/killing blow proc in Outbreak and dot exchange via Festering Strike and Scourge Strike. All main 3 abilities in rotation cost runes. Also the dots from unholy don't seem to be affected by haste?!? 15/16 seems best for unholy. Unholy will be an OP normal player that may or may not agro off normal tanks through aoe/single target.

    One day all spec will be featured, but for now I'm focusing on the good ones because WF farm is a taxing time sink.

    No worries, i just want to try some of the lesser played classes. Frost was dun dps wirh gems, so i was hoping Feost/Blood could be fun.
    --- Double Post Merged, Jan 24, 2023, Original Post Date: Jan 24, 2023 ---
    Why no Mastery for Frost if spamming Howling Blast, and with 2x 1 handers, Razor Ice/Fallen Crusader runes or 2x Fallen Crusader?

    You will get very little out of Mastery for howling blast Above 25% mastery. 4 mastery is 6 more dmg over 24 sec and no change to initial dmg on howling blast. Rune Strike and Death Strike are Physical dmg. Death Coil and Death and Decay are shadow damage and you'll need the def of vers more if you are agroing I wouldn't go any mastery if I can afford to. 25% mastery DR is only around 18 mastery total. SO SUPER BAD STAT WIEGHT for toolkit.

    Some players have Grandfathered gear from when more content was accessible, or they found a way into the dungeon. Everything does scale in the dungeon journal and some people do know exploits. This toon looks familiar so im willing to say that its a GF thing you shouldn't worry about or an exploit that isnt released yet or fixed.

    you should farm wod dungeons and get a hunger of the pack from legion halls of Valor.

    Alright let the DK die hard main dive in here for ya.
    Blood: really suffers from a lack of spells and mastery only helps survival which, if you are twinking, should not be the goal for speed runs. This leaves you with haste/crit/verse. Verse doesn’t do enough for blood when your spells honestly are lacking to begin with, same with crit. Haste would probably be best, but there’s not much for you to want to hit (button wise) kind of relying on melees.
    Frost: Oh god how I wish it would work. Mastery is TERRIBLE until you get the Obliteration = frost damage. Which doesn’t happen until way down the tree. Meaning you’re most likely stacking crit, but even then, HB spam will run you out of runes super fast. Haste would be a decent stat for stacking, trying to get more ticks more frequent and more tunes for more spam. Verse could be good if you could ever get enough haste to keep you at 1+ runes available.
    Unholy: Haven't tested at low levels since DF, will attempt some of this tonight once I’m home from work and will edit this comment.

    Edit 1: feel free to join the discord and tag me there if you want more info quicker than responses here :)

    Edit 2: Oh boy, how do I even say this, as a level 10 (you gotta go to 13 btw) you don't get HB, or SS for unholy. DK is DEAD as a toon until you hit 14 just due to a lack of spells... period :(

    for engineering, you could add goblin glider (25 pandaria engineering). you could also add flexweave underlay (you unlock with frag belt, 5 northrend engineering).
