Frequently Asked Questions

What is WoW's Best Tank class?
You can decide for yourself by looking at the list above. In general, the Top 3 Classes should be a reasonable choice if you're looking for optimal Tanking performance. But don't be disappointed if at this stage your class isn't high-ranking – if you know what you're doing you will succeed with any class.
How often does this Ranking get updated?
We are well aware that there is no use for outdated information. So that is why we monitor these numbers extensively every day just to make sure they're precise and we always adjust them if anything changes. You can see the dates of both events right at the top of this page.
Are these Tank Rankings based on Simcraft or Logs?
This data is based entirely on the recent public Raid Logs of Sanctum of Domination from WarcraftLogs.
Are lower-ranked classes unviable?
Not necessarily. These types of rankings are supposed to demonstrate prevalent patterns, however in real in-game situations countless conditions may affect the outcome, and hence lowest-scoring class can subsequently become Top #1 Tank in raid/group.
