What Bounty is Most Popular for Each Spec?

Last updated: September 22, 2022

The seasonal affix for Shadowlands Season 4 dungeons is a relatively simple stat buff. However, each individual player may select what stat they prefer. We have compiled a list of what stats each spec selects most!

Shrouded Affix

At the start of each dungeon, players may select a secondary stat to buff themselves with, called a Bounty. Players must kill hidden dreadlords throughout the dungeon to receive stacks of this buff. Each stack of the Bounty buff will give the following, based on your stat selection:

  • 2% Critical Strike
  • 2% Haste
  • 69 Mastery
  • 1% Versatility

Versatility

It is important to note that if a player does not select a stat, they will receive Versatility by default (you can find useful weakauras to remind you to pick a Bounty on wago.io) This may have a slight impact on data. However, as players push to higher dungeon levels, Versatility may be required to survive large damage hits! It will be interesting to see how this data will evolve.

Bounty Data on Warcraft Logs

Bounty counts can be found in the rankings for M+ dungeons. They display similarly to how externals display for raid rankings.

Keep an eye out for future Mythic+ specific improvements on Warcraft Logs!

Below is a list of each specialization and what percent of players choose each stat buff. This data is based on the top 800 dungeon runs per spec (top 100 runs per dungeon).
