Lots of people are playing solo shuffle in World of Warcraft Dragonflight, with the impact of tier sets, which spec is the most meta to pick for PvP, let’s go over a WoW 10.1 Season 2 PVP tier list that ranks all specs. 

WoW 10.1 PVP Tier List & Rankings - Best PvP Specs in Dragonflight Season 2

Based on the changes in 10.1 PTR and Patch Notes, here is ThoGrey’s tier list for WoW Dragonflight 10.1 PVP, ranking the best to worst DPS, healer, and tank specs in Season 2.

S Tier: Mistweaver Monk, Preservation Evoker, Retribution Paladin, Fury Warrior, Beast Mastery Hunter, Elemental Shaman

- Preservation Evoker is going to be pretty good pretty, especially since they did a lot of changes, this is quite strong. Dream Breath’s healing is increased by 15%, Spiritbloom applies a heal over time effect for 40% of healing done over 8 seconds. It is going to be worth going for a tier set, also they keep on getting buffs. 

- Mistweaver Monk is going to be an S tier and ahead of Preservation Evoker.

- Retribution Paladin, you have more damage around Judgment and Hammer of Wrath, and also get another modifier, they still have so many tools and still an OP DPS spec. 

- BM Hunter, you just got Kill Command damage increased by 15%, Cobra Shot, Kill Command, and Multi-Shot also reduce the cooldown of Bestial Wrath by one second. it's going to be an A-tier spec, it's still going to be meta and one of those classes that you're going to play into huge damage.

A Tier: Marksmanship Hunter, Discipline Priest, Restoration Shaman, Arms Warrior, Enhancement Shaman, Feral Druid, Frost Mage, Demonology Warlock, Balance Druid

- Balance Druid is a good spec especially based on the multiple changes on the PVP talents and town trees, it is now a better spec than it was in Season 1. It is not changed the CC duration, not changing Cyclone, which is a great thing for them, it has good comps, it has a good setup, and it will be a setup meta where you will be able to CC the enemy team and go for kills although, with the CC changes, there is a way where you can play a routing spec although Starfall is doing some peanuts damage on PTR.

- Feral Druid is going to be strong but not the most OP, it's going to be punishable but not squishy, if you know how to play with them, if you know how to dodge a specific amount of damage because you use your mobility to get out of Harm's Way, Feral Druid is going to be pretty fantastic but a high skill cap class and A tier will be probably the right way to classify it.

B Tier: Destruction Warlock, Shadow Priest, Arcane Mage, Windwalker Monk, Assassination Rogue, Survival Hunter, Havoc Demon Hunter, Unholy Death Knight, Subtlety Rogue, Restoration Druid, Holy Priest, Holy Paladin

- Havoc Demon Hunter is hit on the crit chance for the big abilities like Death Sweep, you don’t get compensation on those abilities, it is going to be pretty harsh for them, it does get a hit on multiple things from previous patches, it is going to be a good spec and very meta, it is probably better than Unholy DK because it is a bit safer with the amount of CC, the number of defensives and the amount of mobility, so it is ranked in high B or might be A. 

- Unholy DK is better than Frost, it’s going to be a B-tier spec, which will do more damage on their death coil, they also glance at the stacks and whenever the stacks are consumed, it will grant one percent mastery for each stack for 25 seconds. Army of the Dead grants 20 stacks of Master of Death, pretty much if you're putting an Abomination you will get 26 of Master of Death, and then you put your Dark Transformation and also you will gain Mastery every time, so it's actually very good you will do a lot of damage.

- Restoration Druid is probably going to be one of the kings of 2v2 because they will have a lot of damage to provide for the team, but in trees, there is no way you can play aggressively, it is also very hard to do a cyclone, you can actually be punished for it.

- Survival Hunter is going to be a different style, it will be more around Wildfire Bombs and try to do as much damage as possible, it's not always going to be very practical, they do need a lot of PVP talents.

C Tier: Outlaw Rogue, Warlock Affliction, Devastation Evoker, Frost Death Knight

- Devastation Evoker, they made a lot of changes on the PTR and also on the patch notes, the problem with the Devastation is still there, so it is still a one-shot spec and there is no real way to play around it, there is no build that you can play to just do pure consistent damage with a bit of burst, the play style is going to cut it in arenas, Devastation Evoker is going to be a C tier spec in PVP.

- Frost DK in Season 2 is even nerfed in PvP, it will break CC, it will not freeze at all, you don’t have the versatility or very low, and the bonuses are not very good as well. It feels like everything is against you, the chance is pretty big, and damage will be lower.
