    BiS List for Arcane/Fire?

    I've searched through multiple threads but haven't come across any BiS lists for either spec for 5.4 and with the patch on Tuesday I'd like to know what to be looking for in regards to offset pieces and set pieces.

    Vykina made a BiS list for fire here: http://www.methodwow.com/board/showt...-Guide/page171

    Arcane will use the same trinkets.

    Fire uses chest for offpiece in that list.

    BiS possibly til Full heroic 4 set, or if we are getting just full warforged pieces, we aren't sure yet since there isn't a way to test it

    Human Fire Mages will want the sword from General Nazgrim Arcweaver Spell Sword, because of the 1% extra hit for swords.

    Our only options is that sword or the crit hit dagger.

    The staves suck for BiS unfortunately, would just use one while trying to get the MH/OH combo.

    BiS will probably be the Crit/Hit dagger and the haste/mastery offhand.

    Just curious, as this is my o/s... are these lists still relevant? Has there been any changes?

    Curious as to why this staff: http://www.wowdb.com/items/104618-le...thic-apparatus

    Isn't BiS?

    Main hand/off hand combination is stronger. I advise you watch my guide thread, Dutchmagoz is currently abusing our guild to test out a few builds, he'll come with a possible amount of BiS lists soon for fire.

    As far as I can tell for Arcane the BiS stays exactly the same.

    That arcane bis list linked earlier is way out of date, it's from before the ToT 4-piece was nerfed. You don't use ToT items anymore and haven't for a long time.

    One thing I would say about that BiS list now that the 588 upgrades are here is that if you are going with the 4 set, using Toxic Treads w/Fractured gem is likely going to be the go to over the galakras shoes as with high mastery levels (110%+) crit goes up in value and past 13.2k haste starts to go down in value

    Thanks for the list.

    Just curious though is HWF Toxic Totem still over HWF Black Blood? It's been a long while since I looked at the official BiS lists.

    That's the big question right now, I personally think it will be, but I don't have the HWF totem to test it (and didn't upgrade my HWF BBoY). I can really see it coming down to a fight by fight basis, heavy multidot/AE (protectors norushen) I could see BBoY pulling ahead.

    The Haste / Mastery from BBoY is just... crazy nice. Don't have HWF BBoY yet but if I get the chance to get it I'm debating whether or not I should pass it off to someone who actually knows its BiS or go for it. Going to have to do a bit of asking around.

    If you end up doing high stack snapshots on Protectors then the proc + the extra mastery is definitely worth it, just not sure if this warrants stealing it from an affli lock or fire mage :P

    I guess its a good thing we have 6 more months of killing him. Guess if it does prove to be BiS for Arcane then I'll just get in line.
