World of Warcraft Dragonflight Patch 10.2 – Guardians of the Dream is currently in its PTR stage, and players are curious to see which classes come out on top.
The biggest purpose of public test realms, aside from getting a sneak peek at new content, is to check out which classes are going to be strong in the new patch, and thankfully we managed to compile a list.
Below you can take a look at the top Healer classes for Mythic+ Season 3 in World of Warcraft Dragonflight‘s upcoming 10.2 patch:
S-tier specializations are the absolute best at what they do, and are essentially what you always want to bring when given the choice.
Keep in mind that every single specialization can clear a +20 Mythic+ key, it just happens S-tier specializations will have a much easier time doing it.
Discipline Priests are thriving after their recent rework, having their performance improved greatly, especially when it comes to Mythic+.
The specialization features the highest damage potential out of all healers, and has great utility to bring into content.
This seemingly perfect specialization does have one small flaw: High-mobility encounters. Discipline Priests will have to learn fights inside and out to know when it’s safe to heal or deal damage, otherwise they may find themselves being hit way too often.
Holy Paladins continue in great shape during Season 3, and even though they received some slight utility nerfs, they can still be considered on the best healers around.
Holy Paladins remain a staple of the meta with combat resurrections and tons of mob control tools, as well as being the only healers with a immunity skill.
Their tier set gives them some extra healing through the Glimmer of Light skill, as well as extra haste through Daybreak, making the class even more competent.
A tier is where essentially every specialization should be: just short of being broken, but undeniably strong.
It’s worth noting that these specializations are also extremely desirable to have in your party composition, as not every group can be entirely composed of S+ specializations.
Restoration Druids haven’t received many changes, but remain a competitive specialization capable of both healing and damaging in equal measure.
Their 2-piece and 4-piece sets give them both extra AOE and single-target healing, respectively, further enhancing their already strong skills.
Restoration Druids also don’t seem to feature any disadvantages, being a jack of all trades in the Mythic+ scenario.
Monks in general are having a rough time in the new 10.2 patch, with Brewmaster being one of the worst tanks, and Windwalker landing in B tier on the DPS charts.
Mistweaver still isn’t exactly in the best possible spot, but is possibly doing the best it’s been in the expansion right now. Mistweavers have received quite a few buffs, and their Mystic Touch enemy debuff makes them more desirable in this melee-oriented meta.
They still retain one of their biggest cons, which is the lack of damage reduction cooldowns, but they still sit in a good spot at A tier.
Preservation Evokers are also another solid specialization, showing that things aren’t too bad in A Tier.
Their 2-piece and 4-piece set enhances their damage capabilities, which are very desirable in the new healer meta.
The amount of utility that the Preservation specialization can bring into fights also makes the Evoker a competent healer, able to deal with any situation thrown its way.
B and C Tier
B Tier means that things aren’t going well for your specialization. Things could be a lot worse, but they definitely aren’t good either. C Tier is where specializations go to die. The absolutely unbalanced (not in a good way) specializations land here, hoping to claw their way out in the next patch.
In B and C tiers we have the Holy Priest and Restoration Shaman specializations, respectively.
Holy Priests have not change much, aside from being nerfed, which shoots them down all the way to B tier. Discipline Priest’s rework also makes the specialization look much worse in comparison, as it lacks the adjustments to be truly competitive.
Restoration Shamans have been unfortunately left behind in C tier, as their new tier set has a focus on healing skills, with no DPS in sight. This trips up the specialization immensely, as the new meta requires that healers contribute with damage, something that the Restoration specialization simply can’t do.
Well, there you go, this was our World of Warcraft Dragonflight Season 3 Mythic+ tier list for the Healer classes. We hope you are having a lot of fun with Dragonflight, and that your favorite specialization will be strong in the upcoming 10.2 patch.
