2. Evaluating Upgrades

The easiest way, and also the method we suggest, to compare multiple items is to use Raidbots Top Gear. Here you can input an export from the Simcraft AddOn , select the items to compare, and it will find out which of the items are best.

3. Weapons

The Two-Hand Sword Geti'ikku, Cut of Death Icon Geti'ikku, Cut of Death from King's Rest with the bleed effect surpasses all weapons with secondary stats by up to 5 item levels. Go to the Simulations page for more details.

4. Trinkets

Due to the prevalence of high item level trinkets and Titanforged rewarded from Mythic+ dungeon grinding, there are a variety of suitable options when it comes to trinkets. It is always best to use Raidbots Top Gear to determine what your optimal trinkets are.
