Arena Junkies class discussion: good information and jackwagons.

PvP Leaderboard: See which talents, glyphs, stats, and gear top WoW PvPers are selecting.

ArenaMate: A good way to track the current rating needed for the various titles (e.g. Challenger) in arena and RBGs. Also has the current ladder of top rated players.

 

Skill-capped arena tier list

 

BY MYSTIC // OCTOBER 3, 2017

Updated to reflect the changes made in the most recent patch.

Here you will find a strong representation of the current metagame from a EU point of view. That being said, this view should closely mirror meta games throughout all regions.

This list was generated using a rankings system modified by Rank 1 and Blizzcon players. Contributors to this list include Zunniyaki (Multi Blizzcon competitor/EU Regionals winner), Loony (Blizzcon champion), Joefernandes (Blizzcon champion), Wallirikz, Zeepeye, Dakkroth, Mystic and many more.

All specs have been assigned to a tier based on the comps available to them and not necessarily because of their power alone.
