Equipment will be the main source of your character’s power, contributing the biggest bulk of your stats. Therefore, it is 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”.

Some of the alternatives and explanations in the list are a work-in-progress. More details will be provided soon!

PLEASE DO NOT USE THIS GUIDE!
Almost every single item is incorrect, the T7 set bonus is absolute garbage and you should only use the items for their stats. Only the gloves are BiS and crit is basically useless, you should stack haste.

You realize HoTs cannot crit right? All through this guide you talk about crit being a good stat, when it’s largely useless unless you’re doing some insanely inefficient Resto Druid healing and spamming HT or Nourish. Additionally, since you shouldn’t be spamming Nourish the 4P becomes mostly useless as well. Forethought Tailsman cannot proc off HoTs, only direct heals.

If you’re aware of all of this, why would you ever suggest tier shoulder or legs as BiS? They have a useless stat and tier bonus. Why would you suggest a trinket that relies on crits to proc and gives crit, when the majority of your heals cannot crit? Or a trinket that relies on direct heals when it does not proc of your HoTs? I agree with Spn, this list is terrible. Its like you just went “okay gotta throw this together, tier + highest ilvl”

Hi Kisulken! If you click on an item, it will take you to a database page, and at the bottom of the page it will tell you how the item is created, what boss drops it, etc.
