With the pre-patch for WoW: Shadowlands, the class miscellany was once turned inside out, properly squashed and then shaken back to the fantasy world of Azeroth. This reboot naturally raises some exciting questions. For example, which classes and specializations are currently most popular in the Mythic Plus dungeons.

WoW fan OtherwiseUniversity7 recently presented a tool on Reddit (via Icy Veins) that allows us to answer this question now and in the future. With his dashboard Benched, he mainly wanted to determine and vividly display the statistics that are not vividly enough available on websites like Raider. For example, he wants to see exactly how active the Mythic Plus community is across all keystones, how the class distribution changes across keystones, and whether you can see adjustments to the meta over the course of a season.

Thanks to the tool, it is now possible to determine, for example, which tank, DpS, and healing specializations are particularly popular in the Mythic Plus dungeons since the release of the pre-patch.

  1. Protection Paladin = 111,182 Runs
