This page will always show the latest World of Warcraft arena compositions for ranked arena play, and is designed to measure compositions in terms of their strength in the current meta. Although some Heroes are considered niche or balanced, those that aren't Tier S or A shouldn't be considered poor. While any match can be won with any composition, this list is designed to present you with the strongest.

Tier List Descriptors

Tier S - Dominating. The classes/specializations are top-tier and are consisently chosen.

Tier A - Strong. These classes/specializations are undoubtedly strong, and remain popular. While below S Tier, they can hold their own with relative ease.

Tier B - Good. These classes/specializations are good, and can do well in PvP if they're in the hands of a skilled player.

Tier C - Poor. Generally considered poor for PvP, these classes/specializations are either heavily PvE orientated, or are significantly undertuned to bring value.
