DPS spec stats after 1 month in Nighthold

So after a month in Nighthold this is currently where the specs stand at the 75th percentile in both heroic and mythic difficulties. Note that there are still a fairly limited amount of parses for mythic in general. This is a bit interesting and can start a discussion based on Nighthold fights and spec performance judging by the differences in damage as well as number of parses of these specs. Blizzard seems to be balancing specs fairly well for the most part and tweaking will always happen throughout the game’s future.
