Now that World of Warcraft: Shadowlands launched, the min-maxing has already begun with tons of people simulating their performance by using viable third-party tools. With Blizzard’s latest patch and class tweaks, the DPS output varied, bringing numerous classes at different spots on the DPS rankings. Without further ado, let’s see who holds the top single-target DPS spot.
The simulation of in-game characters is done by SimulationCraft, a known program that does all the necessary calculations with the best-in-slot gear, covenants, and conduits for the current 9.0.2 patch.
