Loot tables are still being discovered, so now's not the best time for BiS item lists. On the other hand, are you interested in just a BiS item list of normal mode?

Gravely,

This isn't precisely a BiS guide, but it is a good guide to relative value of upgrades (most specs value haste > crit) so it's not a bad guide to help you plan upgrades based on bosses you know you are fighting even if the values of the upgrades are tied to an old spec.

I find myself going back to it over and over again (Since there's no post-Wrath of the Lich King Canadian Pimp guide I am aware of)

Is that through gemming though? If so, you're better off taking the hit and using spell power gems instead.

3.1 Re: Best in slot(BiS) warlock items list?

Nope, i don't have hit gems at all. Atm 290 hit when there is a moonkin/spriest and 368 when there isnt in our raid, with suppression ofc. My spec is 3/13/55.

Edit: to make it more clear im swimming in hit rating stuff

Lockman, you would do better to phase out the need for hit from your talents and put those points into the recommended 0/13/58 spec to improve your overall dps and raid friendliness (assuming you use the imp soul leech spec)

Zamp,

It's appreciated that you are taking the time to reply thoughtfully with a real BiS list.

Unfortunately, this cannot be a true accepted BiS list if you assume that BiS items all work together and are what you are striving to complete an overall outfit with although I am sure individually a lot of these items are great.

The reason being that this list does not have close to the hit rating (185 hit is what that list comes to based on gems and enchants outlined) needed even with suppression and boomkin/spriest/draenei buffs in your raid.

The same thread actually modifies that list substantially with different hit rating targets. I would suggest the interested reader primarily go there for some examples. Here is a link to one specific post that has some high 200's hit rating BiS examples and high 300s (if you didn't have suppression) examples

Dots and you: The Affliction Warlock Thread - Page 40 - Elitist Jerks

With that said, just to re-emphasize: anyone looking at BiS lists must still be aware of what gear they are likely to be capable of getting in a particular period of time based on their guild's raid progression and likely competition/cooperation for gear.

You will also notice the one I linked had no trinkets.
I didnt copy the end of his post, because I figured people would have the decency to expect to check out the trinket thread we have posted along here.

Added on Living Flame which is a whopping 108 hit.

BiS also comes down to raid make up, how you spec, etc.

edit;

Also, all your BiS you posted are correct as well, depends on how you want to modify your gear to make it work for you.
