DISCLAIMER

This RAIDING tier các mục is CONSTANTLY EVOLVING — It CHANGES and IS UPDATED as often as necessary lớn account for tuning và balance changes & new tiers of nội dung. Especially now that this is the first predictive tier danh mục for 9.1 and the new raid, this is NOT FINAL.


Hello! I am Impakt, an officer in the North American guild "BDGG", orBig Dumb Golden Guardians. We finished Castle Nathria as the second best guildin North America, and at World 9th. We are prepping hard for the new raid tiers in Shadowlands,and this menu reflects how we are currently feeling about the various classes và specializations for progressingthe new raid tier in patch 9.1, Sanctum of Domination. In addition to lớn our own experience,this các mục was created and will continue khổng lồ be update in consultation with raiders of other top guilds.

This tier danh sách is entirely based on tank viability for the new raid in Patch 9.1 of Shadowlands,Sanctum of Domination. The main things you want lớn look for in tank choice are damage dealternative text, ability lớn handle orrecover from incoming damage of all types, cooldowns, và utility.


It is incredibly important to emphasize that just because a tankis low in the tier danh sách, it does not mean that you should ignore it completely. For the vast majorityof cases, you should choose khổng lồ bring the better player, not the better class. That does notmean you never need to lớn think about your raid composition, just that most of the time player skillwill be more important than the difference between classes, assuming you already have sầu the requiredraid buffs. All being lower tier means is that, allelse being equal, those specs will be less desirable for the raid based on current tuning.

Additionally, this is all very much subject khổng lồ change. Especially since this is a new raidthat has yet khổng lồ be released, this is mostly speculative from our experiences on the PTR và inraid testing. As players clear the raid, they will inevitably discover new things to make their specsbetter - the meta can and will change.


Below is a quiông chồng summary of the full rankings that we have sầu detailed on this page.While this gives a good outline of the standings of specializations in comparisonto one another, we recommover reading the full rankings to understvà why certainspecializations are ranked as they are.

One major difference in this 9.1 tier danh sách is what separates the tanks.Tanks are much closer together when it comes khổng lồ defensive power than in CastleNathria — every tank is perfectly viable in terms of defensive power forclearing the raid on mythic. The major differences between the tanks are damageoutput, utility, and chất lượng buffs that they bring khổng lồ the raid. In other words,most raids could go in with any combination of tanks và vị just fine inSanctum of Domination.


Protection Warriors bring several important abilities that provide insane utility lớn the group.

*
Battle Shout gives 5% APhường. to lớn the raid,
*
Rallying Cry is an exceptionalraid cooldown, & Necrolord Warriors also bring
*
Conqueror"s Banner.Banner was changed in Patch 9.0.5, và now allows you to lớn buff two other players with 400 mastery and30% movement tốc độ for 15 seconds on a 2-minute cooldown. Banner provides a huge boost in damagefor some classes during their burst windows, which makes Protection Warrior one the best tankslớn bring both in terms of overall raid DPS and defensive sầu utility.

Protection Warriors are solid defensively, but their offensive and defensive utility is whatmakes them S-tier.

*
Ignore Pain and
*
Spell Reflection fills the need for magicdamage mitigation, while their array of cooldowns helpsthem in high damage situations.
*
Demoralizing Shout,
*
Shield Wall,
*
Last Stvà, along with some other strong talent options provide Warriors with multipleways to lớn giảm giá with damage of any sort.

3.2.

A-Tier


3.2.1. Guardian Druid

Guardians are still the tankiest of tanks going into Sanctum of Domination.Thanks to their damage mitigation passives, talents, andthe high up-time on Ironfur, Guardian take less damageoverall than any other tank class on any encounter.

*
Survival Instinctsis still one of the highest damage reductions for any tank, but is only 6 seconds and more for targetedused. Bears also have sầu
*
Barkskin and
*
Frenzied Regeneration, buttheir primary active sầu mitigation comes from Ironfur. Currently their mainproblem is that they lachồng any real raid utility apartfrom a 1-minute
*
Stampeding Roar, and they vì not bring any required raid buff. If youwant your tanks to just stay alive, Guardian is the best choice. It is alsoworth noting, though, that Guardian actually does high-tier damage output & is a decent choiceoffensively for the raid if you can look past the lachồng of utility.


Demon Hunters have a strong all-around toolkit that combines top-tier damage mitigation withdecent self-healing. Demon Hunters offer a very strong passive sầu reduction againstmagic damage when combining

*
Demonic Wards with
*
Viscous Ink.
*
Metamorphosis is still an incrediblypowerful defensive cooldown, which along with
*
Fiery Br& và
*
Fel Devastationgives them decent options for dealing with high damage periods. Detháng Hunters specifically also get the talent
*
Last Resort that allows them to lớn cheat death, which is beyond invaluable fortanking at a progression màn chơi. Finally Detháng Hunters are still one of the mostsản phẩm điện thoại classes in the game, which is of course incredibly useful khổng lồ have sầu as a tank.

It is also worth mentioning that similar to Monks, Demon Hunters have a 5% magic buff that theybring to lớn the raid. However, Havoc Detháng Huntersare actually one of the more common DPS found in rsida, making it likely most rsida will haveone anyway. At least one Vengeance Demon Hunter is almost required if your raid does nothave a Havoc Demon Hunter.


Protection Paladins have sầu solid damage mitigation actives with many powerful cooldowns,making them decently durable và one of the best scaling tanks in 9.1.

*
Shield of the Righteoushas quite a high up-time in 9.1, & they still have sầu cooldowns such as
*
Ardent Defenderor
*
Guardian of Ancient Kings available during downtime.However, Paladins main strengths come from their damage output và utility.Paladins are still one of the best tanks khổng lồ bring for the damage & utility, which isa very real need on some encounters. Paladins have a personal immunity, an immunity they canplace on a raid member, high single-target damage comparatively, and access to
*
Ashen Hallowas an exceptional raid healing và damage cooldown.

B-Tier


3.3.1. Brewmaster Monk

Brewmaster is unfortunately is one of the least durable tanks going inlớn Sanctum of Domination.While Stagger as a mechanic was better in Castle Nathria where tank damage was exceptionallyhigh, other classes are performing comparatively better defensively than they were early on in Shadowlands.Brewmasters require more healing than most tanks khổng lồ be kept alive since they vì chưng not actually mitigate as muchdamage. In a situation where all of the tanks are defensively viable khổng lồ clear the raid, Brewmasteris one of the worst choices defensively because it will require the most external help to stay alive, especiallysince Brewmaster has one of the weaker cooldown toolkits out of any tank. That being said,Brewmaster still does solid damage output, has excellent mobility, và does bring a required raidbuff which could be a reason lớn consider running a Brewmaster. As a Monk, Brewmasters alsobring a 5% physical damage buff khổng lồ the raid. Windwalker and Mistweaver Monks canalso bring it however, và Windwalkers are more commonly found in raid in Shadowlands. However,Brewmaster is an easy way lớn grab it if you cannot reliably field another Monk specialization.


The best word khổng lồ describe Blood Death Knight is every tank"s favorite word: agency. As aBlood Death Knight, you have sầu more control over your ability to lớn survive than any other tankout there, which makes this a great tank for players looking toflex their personal skill in high kết thúc content.

*
Death Strike is still the powerhouseof self healing that it has always been, which is one of the biggest strengths for Death Knights.They have a large array of tools at their disposal, including
*
Vampiric Blood,
*
Dancing Rune Weapon,
*
Anti-Magic Shell,
*
Icebound Fortitude,
*
Rune Tap, và more. Finally, DKs have sầu
*
Death Grip and
*
Gorefiend"s Grasp. Grips are the signature, quality Death Knight ability that can be vitalfor any raid encounters with adds, although they are not particularly useful in Sanctum of Domination.

There are two reasons that DK is in the B-tier. The first is damage: DKs vị the least damageout of any tank. Damage output has been the primary issue for Blood DKsfor quite some time, và even after some minor buffs in Patch 9.1 they have sầu notreally improved. The second major issue is raid utility. Grips are not necessaryin any of the more difficult encounters, và their previously-strong raidcooldown

*
Anti-Magic Zone was nerfed substantially in Patch 9.1.While still decent, it is a bit weaker than it was previously, but less so for Blood comparedlớn the other DK DPS specializations. Everytank is viable defensively, however, which means that to lớn be in the A-tier orS-tier they would need to lớn bring something more. All of the other tanks abovebring a required raid buff, more damage, or better raid cooldowns.
