Welcome to our World of Warcraft Shadowlands Healer Rankings updated for the latest Shadowlands PTR Patch and the newest Raid – Castle Nathria. We check this data every day and make sure that it is accurate and up to date. The classes and specs here are ranked by their overall Healing performance in Raids at Level 60. The data is gathered from the most recent successful boss kills of Castle Nathria from WarcraftLogs. Wipes/trash fights are NOT considered. You can see the number of parsed logs for each boss.

By using the approach of combining dozens of real logs from last week's Shadowlands PTR Raid Testing of Castle Nathria, we can measure the central tendency of this dataset while taking statistical dispersion into the account to provide you with the most realistic chart. This is the most reliable way before we have access to Shadowlands Simulationcraft data.

Please note that Shadowlands PTR is still very much a work in progress so these numbers are evolving constantly as Blizzard introduces many changes with every patch. We are keeping this page up-to-date.

While such metrics have always been simply representative of the maximum potential HPS, you can still use them to analyze the output of your class/spec (such as what kind of performance you can expect from it) as well as to discover who is the Top Healer in Shadowlands PTR now.

Frequently Asked Questions

🏆 What is the Best Healer class to play in Shadowlands?

You can judge for yourself by examining the list above. Statistically speaking, the Top 3 Classes here would be a safe pick when you are aiming to achieve maximum healing efficiency. But do not be frustrated if your class or spec is not high-ranking at this moment – you can still excel with it if you know what you are doing.

🎯 How frequently is this Rating updated?

We are well aware that dated information is of no use. And this is why we thoroughly check these stats every day just to ensure that they are authentic and we always tweak them whenever something happens to change. At the top of this page, you can see the dates of both events.

🤔 Are these Simcraft or Logs-based Healer Rankings?

We do not have access to Simulationcraft for Shadowlands (yet), so this data is based entirely on Raid Logs from last week's Raid Testing of Castle Nathria on Shadowlands PTR.

🙄 Are lower-ranked classes uncompetitive?

Not always. These kinds of rankings are intended to highlight common patterns, however, in particular in-game situations lots of variables could interject, and thus the lowest-scoring class/spec may ultimately end up becoming Top #1 Healer in raid/group. It all depends.
