Since this guide was written quite a while ago, we recently did an update article. Interested in what changed? You can find it right here!

Get ready to get BiS, with this awesome list! See what we did there? Regardless, you will find everything below. Since it concerns Best in Slot, we don’t mention Heroic to Mythic upgrades. Blue means best. Each item is listed with both Mythic and Mythic Warforged versions and even gem slot calculations have been added. For comparison’s sake we will leave gem slots out of the equation, but you can always check the table for the adjusted values. In order to make this list, we had to assign weights to each stat. This is what we worked with:

gem values

Also, note that we selected the best tier off piece slot depending on the difference between possible value of the off piece and tier piece. The highest difference will be the slot for the off piece: in this tier these are the legs. So without further ado:

head bis chart

neck bis chart

shoulders bis chart

back bis chart


wrists bis chartchest bis chart

hands bis chart

waist bis chart

legs bis chart

feet bis chart

ring bis chart

two hands bis chart

one hand bis chart

*The table below has been updated. The ‘Fallen Defender of Argus’ was missing from the table. Thanks to Molyna for pointing that out! 😀

offhand bis version 2

Now you may be thinking: ‘I’m missing the trinkets?’. And you’re right! We found ourselves using each of the trinkets in different situations. That is why we made a seperate post for them: ‘Trinkets in Hellfire Citadel!

We initially published this post on September 29th 2015. To check on the relevance of our work, we wrote the post ‘Looking back on HFC – 8 months into the tier‘.

Is the Portal-Ripper’s Staff mythic warforged version better then Edict?

hi, I have a question on upgrading from hc -> mythic, when it comes to the gear and trinket and so on I’d rather just go from the BiS hc to the BiS mythic, but weap is so strong and mythic archi wont happen soon, when is it worth to upgrade from the HC Edict to mythic weap? and what weap should be the way to go?

Fellow resto shamans, I just realized the 6.2.3 patch introduced item 725 drops from 5-man mythic dungeons, which means more best-in-slot candidates.

 

In particular, take a look at Rockhide Wristguards which drops from Mythic Grimrail and UBRS (final bosses of course). It has Mastery and Haste, making it even better than any wrist drop from Mythic HFC!

 

Not that we can’t do without the best secondary stats, but if you have not yet got the Mythic Socrethar wrist, or you have too many bonus rolls to spend, you know where to go.

I haven’t even considered that, but yes it will be BiS given that you can get it at 725 item level. The odds of doing so is rather low though.

Hi there, I’m currently using a mythic socketed Mindscythe of the Legion paired with mythic Soulwarped Tower Shield. I’m wondering if getting the heroic version of Thumping Demonheart Fetish would be better before I get my hands on Velhari’s shield on mythic. We’ll be starting mythic Mannoroth progress soon since we got our first Xhul’horac kill recently and I want to make sure I’m as prepared I can get because I’ve heard it’s on Mannoroth shit really starts to hit the fan.

You should just stick with the shield you have, it’s not worth it to drop that many item levels for the Mannoroth off-hand.

Yeah, that’s kinda what I suspected. I’ll just hope for Velhari’s shield to drop before we do Mannoroth progress then, thanks!

In case someone was wondering (as I was), the BiS drops from the following bosses:

Head – Kromrok
Neck – Mannoroth
Shoulders – Xhul’horac
Back – Gorefiend
Wrists – Socrethar the Eternal
Chest – Mannoroth
Hands – Socrethar the Eternal
Waist – Fel Lord Zakuun
Legs – Tyrant Velhari
Feet – HFC BoE
Ring – Tyrant Velhari
Weapon – Archimonde
Trinket 1 – Socrethar the Eternal
Trinket 2 – Hellfire Assault / Kilrogg Deadeye

Yeah I guess we should’ve added the boss names for the items respectively

Is it possible to update the table and add them in at all?
