Equipment will be the main source of your character’s power, contributing the biggest bulk of your stats. It is therefore very important that you choose the correct equipment for each slot — commonly referred to as “best in slot” equipment – in order to maximize your power.

This guide will help you choose the best equipment possible for each phase, but also the best equipment you can find outside of raids, known as “pre-raid” gear or “pre-BiS”.

Alternatives : Engi goggles if you decided to take it If you have decided to take up engineering these will be the superior option.

Alternative – Titanium Impact Neck – has Armor Penetration though, making it less ideal. (JC)

Alternative – UP HC Shoulders for Hit (Utgarde Pinnicle HC)

Alternative – Cloak of the Gushing Wound (Violet Hold HC)

Alternative – Leatherworking cloak BoE for gold – Icestriker’s

Alternative – Interwoven Scale Bracers  (Nexus HC)

Eaglebane Bracers – The Easiest Alternative and gives a good chunk of hit rating

Double sockets for 64+ AP and very cheap to get.

Giantmaim Leggguards cheap to buy off AH, has Armor pen though 🙁

Alternative : Dragon Slayer’s Sabatons (Nexus HC)

Alternatives – Mobius Band (CoS HC

Alternatives – Titanium Impact BandStained-Glass Shard Ring easiest ring to get. (JC – BoE AH)

Hit Alternative : Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood (Nexus HC)

even though it’s a blue weapon it comes out ahead DPS wise vs the epic alternative (Knights of the Ebon Blade – Revered) Staff of Trickery (Violet Hold HC)

Alternative : UK HC Crossbow (Utgarde Keep HC)

Chest and Hands – these are very important to note because for BM we will actually be going for the Tier 7 chest and gloves, although not great stat wise they provide your pet with 5% extra damage making it by far your best option, seeing as your pet does a far greater portion of your damage than for Marksmanship or Survival respectively.
Alternative: Handgrips of the Savage Emissary (Violet Hold HC)

Chest and Hands – these are very important to note because for BM we will actually be going for the Tier 7 chest and gloves, although not great stat wise they provide your pet with 5% extra damage making it by far your best option, seeing as your pet does a far greater portion of your damage than for Marksmanship or Survival respectively.
Alternative: Argent crusade chest

Blue Aspects Helm for Beast Master we will actually take 2-set tier bonus due to pet importance.

Alternatives: Pendant is your 2nd choice because it does not mess with your hit rating, Fools Trial is your final neck option but this will almost certainly over cap you on hit rating.

These Tier shoulders , as your helm, have the best stats compared to the rest of your tier options.
and as such should be your first pick.
Alternatives: Tier 7 – the same shoulders but from 10 man, so with lower amounts but the same stats.
Upstanding shoulders – The shoulders have the best stat potential with the high amount of AGI and AP, but sadly don’t provide the set bonus that we need.

no surprise here problem, and even though haste is not a stat we prefer, it is an ilvl 226 item and beats out the alternatives which also don’t have perfect stats.

Great chest with perfect stats, would be the ideal chest if it was a tier piece.
But you can’t have everything. great pick-up, but relatively rare.

Tunic of Endulgange Great chest with great stats as well, the only downside is it being leather. And thus not providing any intellect so may not be ideal for long fights. great alternative nonetheless

IBoE and low drop chance, you either have to be rich or lucky. so an alternative is certainly needed.

nterwoven Scale from the Nexus HC, for a guaranteed upgrade, buy Giantmain Bracers

If you need to drop hit, or can use the extra mana you should go for Gloves of Calculated Risk as your best alternative.
The rest of the love options have very suboptimal stats 🙁

Belt of the Tortured leather, so no intellect – but sadly the only other ilvl 213 alternatives. these are the only upgrades from your pre-bis.

these are your BiS by far crit and 2 sockets. You’re not finding this anywhere else.

Alternative: Leggings of the Colossal

the only ilvl 226 boots.

Alternative: Boots of the Great Construct

An alternative that’s very easy to get: Strong Handed Ring

Alternative: Sphere of Red Dragon’s Blood if hit is needed
Mirror of Truth – slightly worse than Fury of the Five Flights for Beast Mastery

Ok, so here it gets a bit tricky, technically Betrayer of Humanity is BiS for you, however, this is a highly contested item that ALL melee want.
you are better off going for Journey’s end, which is only contested by ferals.

Alternative: Journey’s end (almost just as good)

this is the only ilvl 226 weapon available for ranged weapons, there are 3 alternatives for ilvl 213.
NarubArrowsong Final Voy are the alternatives.
