With the existence of Titanforged and Mythic+ dungeons, there is no such thing as a hard Best in Slot anymore. This is more of a guideline for the best pieces to keep an eye out for in your raid or dungeon (if applicable). Be smart, and if you find higher item level pieces with valuable stat combinations do not hesitate to upgrade to them.

Corruptions and Corrupted Items

Operation: Mechagon Gear
- Pocket-Sized Computation Device is a fairly potent trinket, when slotted with a Cyclotronic Blast red card. Yellow cards have random stats and as such simply depend on your current stat weights.
- Loop/Bit ring combinations from Operation: Mechagon do have extra damage components not on the item budgets, however, they need a to both be equipped in order to activate The combination of Logic Loop of Division and Overclocking Bit Band is the best possible combination.
Cyclotronic Blast in particular can be very useful during progress, since it provides a powerful single target burst on a 2-minute cooldown.
Adding Sockets to Gear
Patch 8.3 added the Gouged Eye of N'Zoth as a reward from Corrupted Mementos, after you have finished the We Have the Technology achievement. Once finished, you should get a Gouged Eye about once every two weeks, assuming you are doing all of your Horrific Visions with 5 masks active. The best item to use it on would be a high itemlevel item with BiS stats and a good corruption.
