    Best spec for pve

    Guys what is currently the best spec for bfa raiding ?

  2. #2
    Aff or Destro, play what you enjoy the most, they are pretty equal in terms of output.

    Mostly, Destro, there are only 2 fights in BOD that Aff is better on

    That depends. Aff outperforms destro in BOD at the 75th percentile:

    They're about equal at the 80th percentile, only once you get up into the 90th percentile does destro really pull ahead of aff:

    Most people aren't gonna be playing this well, so for most people aff ends up being the best spec in BOD. If you're good at aff though, you can compete with destro on most fights.

    Trying affliction but my dps is so low . Was not getting same with destruction so surely am doing something wrong. Tried raidbots and seems fine

    Personally, my aim with all DPS classes is to rank 90s or at least high 80s, and so it's Destro for me no question. But if you're not that ambitious, it's mostly a wash. You should probably try both out (maybe in LFR?) and see what you feel most comfortable with. Playing well is more important when specs are close, and some people just do better with one over the other for various reasons. Neither is particularly complicated to play, so see what works best for you. Unless you plan on going into mythic hardcore, spec-based performance is not going to be an issue for you here.

    EDIT: Also look at your Azerite traits. They can make a LOAD of difference, and if you don't have the right traits for your spec, your performance may be quite a bit lower.

    Sorry I changed some some gear an hour after you posted ....had the right traits for affliction.

    The only fights where one spec is far superior is Grong/Jadefire/Loas as Destro and King Rasta/Opul as Affliction.

    All 3 specs are perfectly viable, just play what you enjoy the most. Top logs is just padding at this point anyway

    TBF, when are they not? When applying for guilds I always outline in my logs how I avoid damage and do mechanics unlike Johnny the DPS whore that is in my group.

    I dont get what point you are trying to make here? You can't not do mechanics and stand in fire on mythic without dying and that will result in a green or grey log - And it's not as much padding in the very beginning of a tier(while its a progress boss) unless it's a meme boss tbh, just how i remember previous tiers atleast

    I agree with this. I play Demonology because its the most fun spec for both pve & pvp, but of course. Whoever wants to be cutting edge has to adjust to what it good in the current patch, but this is like 2-3% of people.

    Destro is great. Always need one in a raid

    All 3 specs are great depending on the fight and traits. Demo can annihilate aff or destro if played well or tyrants pan out.

    Most fights are long range cleave fights so demo loses by default even when it has the strongest single target or sustained aoe output.

    As far as affliction or destruction for raiding goes, you basically cannot go wrong with either, they are probably the strongest specs in almost every fight this tier.

    M+ demo just wrecks shit. It's not the powerhouse it used to be before the nerfs but it's still one of the strongest range specs. If a boss fight is around 2 minutes and you can get 2 tyrants off, you are likely never even seeing the competition, that's how far ahead you can be. Aff and destro are just horrendous with reaping.
