Is there a CM BiS Gear list?

4 posts in this topic

I was wondering if anyone constructed a Best In Slot list for Challenge Modes. I'm looking for a list of stuff I should be targeting in Heroic runs with my Protection Paladin. I know there was a list back in MoP of gear slots/pieces and where to get them. Has anyone here created a list like that for themselves?

With how random loot is, you can do heroics to get an item with the right stats, if you continually do it. Sadly the trinket options aren't that great (the mission ones are though), so you'll find yourself farming a ton of heroics to get your perfect itemized gear, and rerolling crafted items as well. Sockets, Warforged, and Tertiary stats dont work in challenge modes, so you really just need to get the 630 gear that works best for you.


With how loot works in heroics, its not "this bonus armor cloak is from this boss." Instead, it's now "cloaks are from these bosses, so ill farm them until the right one drops." Basically this means, do tons of random heroics until you narrow down your selection to certain dungeons, etc. Just follow your stat priority to maximize this.


On a side note, the 600 ilvl mission trinket is pretty much better than the 630 ilvl mission trinket, so you can either use both of them for their CD value, or stick to the passive armor/haste one for heroics. (The mission ones both have 106/107 armor, the 600 one has a 800 versatility use, and the 630 one has a 1000 haste use).

Thank you Fouton for the info smile.png
What missions are you talking about for the trinkets?
Like "Munificent Soul of Compassion +138 Bonus Armor w/ 1200 Vers for 10 sec proc" from the follower missions?


I've been targeting gear that has Bonus Armor/Mastery, or Mastery/Versatility , or Mastery/Crit.
Using this I've come up with These Items

My Gear

Is there anything I could/should optimize? (specific to CM)

Yeah, I've picked up inv_misc_trinket6oih_orb2.jpgTurbulent Seal of Defiance and inv_misc_trinket6oih_lanterna2.jpgTormented Seal of Fortitude so far.


The interesting thing is with the hotfixes to paladins, there's basically no chance to our stats, except that they're closer in value.


As for your gear, I'd recommend getting rid of some of that crit for better stats if you can, since having unreliable stats that are chance dependent could cost you your life if you get some bad RNG. Especially that str trinket

      Hey guys and gals. I'm fairly new to assassination, my rogue was originally a SUB rogue, for legion I changed to Outlaw, and finally Assassination. I've been raiding now with it for a good couple of months with my current spec, I've tried to follow the icy veins guide as close as I can, when it comes to BIS, rotation, etc.  I'm struggling to get the numbers, I'm supposed to be getting according to my gear level.
      I am aware I don't have all my BIS, but I'm working on it. My guild is currently doing NH Heroic, and so far we are 6 bosses in. And most of the pieces I need are in the later bosses, so far we haven't been able to progress that far.
      according to warcraftlogs, my dps is in the very low end of the spectrum. and I agree, there is another rogue in my guild that puts out almost 35% more dps than I do, and he is at 898 right now.
      these are my logs
      these are the logs for my guildee, that whoops my butt in dps every time (he is a really cool dude and has tried to help me, but because of his and my work schedule I only get to talk to him during raid times)
      Also my rotation for single target goes as follows: Garrote-mutilate-rupture(5point)--mutilate-mutilate(5point)-envenom-kingsbane--vendetta--garrote(keeping it up)-mutilate-mutilate-vanish-rupture---rinse and repeat.
      So if you guys have any advice, on areas I could improve. I would greatly appreciate it.

      Adelante is currently recruiting ranged DPS, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 3/10M NH, 7/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk; in addition, we would like to acquire a second Shadow Priest or Demon Hunter. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord:
      Thank you for your consideration
