By Shirley Huang2023-11-22

A tier list is a ranking of the relative strengths and weaknesses of different classes and specs in a game. Tier lists can vary depending on the criteria, such as PvE, PvP, solo, or group content.

 

There is no definitive answer to which classes are the best in WoW Season of Discovery, as different classes and specs have different strengths and weaknesses depending on the content and the role they play. However, some classes and specs are more popular and versatile than others, and some have gained new abilities and changes that make them more viable and fun in SoD. Here is a summary of some of the popular tier lists for DPS, Healer, and Tank roles in SoD.
