wotlk classic combat rogue best in slot (bis) & pre raid gear

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”.

This will be your best option for this slot.

This combination of rings will be your best option.

Alternative: Meteorite Whetstone

If the Incisor Fragment is being a bit stubborn with dropping, you can use Meteorite Whetstone instead, the two aren’t extremely far apart in performance. You’ll want to make sure you’re using Mirror of Truth at all times, though.

Alternative Main Hand / Human: Crypt Lord’s Deft Blade

Humans can use Crypt Lord’s Deft Blade in their main hand so they get their racial’s benefit, while everyone else should be using The Key. For the off-hand slot, The Interrogator is just really good, thanks to its superb speed and stats.

Alternative: Mirror of Truth

The Mirror of Truth is roughly equal to Loatheb’s Shadow, so you can use whichever one you happen to get first. You will want to get Grim Toll no matter what your 2nd trinket is however, as it is incredibly powerful.

Alternative Main Hand / Mace Specialization: Angry Dread
Alternative Off-Hand / Mace Specialization: Split Greathammer

The sword combination listed above will be the overall best option this tier. Dwarves however can instead go for the mace set listed in the Alternatives section, switching to the Mace Specialization talent build. Other races can also go for the maces if they happen to drop first and nobody wants them, or if the swords are being elusive — the Silent Crusader is notoriously rare, as it drops from trash.

This will be your best option for this slot.
