    BM M+ Legendary (9.1)

    I'm getting a lot of conflicting information between Wowhead and Icy Veins.
    What is the consensus for best BM Legendary for M+ right now?

    This is for my alt Hunter, so he's obviously behind. Currently using a 225 Rylakstalker with NF Covenant. About to craft a new max level Legendary. So I'm not sure if Rylakstalker is still best. Or the new NF Legendary is better now? Or if the Bag of Munitions Legendary combined with Necrolord is now tops for M+?

    Hunter Discord is your best bet for information.
    Last I heard, it’s Elder Antlers for pretty much everything if you’re NF.

    Not that usefull when you pull more then 5 mobs, which often Happens in M+, while i would say discord is your best bet, be prepared for some elitist jerks there.

    I got this from method.gg website:

    LEGENDARIES
    Soulforge Embers - Using Flare into Tar Trap dots up to 5 targets, it's currently the best legendary for every scenario. The downside of that legendary is the positioning of the trap, which makes your gameplay inconvenient. You can use a second Flare into the same Tar Trap.

    Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs - During Bestial Wrath, the pet's critical damage is increased by 20%. This is slightly worse than Soulforge Embers for single target, but more reliable since you don’t have to play with Tar Trap. It also scales well with critical strike.

    In patch 9.1 we got 4 new legendaries for each covenant:

    Kyrian: Pact of the Soulstalkers - gives 10% increased critical strike buff for the whole party for 10 seconds. This legendary has high potential to be played in raid but needs specific comp in order to out-dps other legendaries.
    Night Fae: Fragments of the Elder Antlers - gives double the dmg of Wild Spirits when it hits less than 5 targets. This legendary is really good for high burst which is needed for this raid tier.
    Venthyr: Pouch of Razor Fragments - with every Kill Shot proc it dots up to 6 targets for 60% of Kill Shot dmg for 6 sec. It gives more sustained dmg but still depends a lot on RNG and loses value on a single target.
    Necrolord: Bag of Munitions - Death Chakram applies Explosive Shot on up to 2 targets. This legendary adds more burst every 45 seconds but 2 targets is too few in order to even consider switching to Necrolord at the moment.

    Raiding
    Night Fae - Fragments of the Elder Antlers / Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs- depends if you can get the full value of Antlers if not go Rylak.

    Kyrian - Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs

    Venthyr - Pouch of Razor Fragments

    M+
    For fortified weeks no matter what covenant you are, Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs is the best choice. However, as Night Fae Fragments of the Elder Antlers might be a good option for Theater of Pain and Mists of Tirna Scithe.

    For Tyrannical weeks as Night Fae Fragments of the Elder Antlers, for other covenants Rylakstalker's Piercing Fangs.

    I think the Critical Strike legendary (Rylakstalker's) pairs extremely well with the Kyrian Covenant ability. I've seen a massive upsurge of Kyrian BM Hunters this patch.

    I've tried both and Antler's sims higher (~150 dps) and seems to be better in most situations for Night Fae. Noticeable increase in raids and marginal in m+.

    I think it's close enough for it to be a playstyle decision with Rylak offering more consistency while Antlers has a higher ceiling but requires smart planning and placement for wild spirits.

    Generally it depends on the instance and the affixes. If you do an instance where you constantly pull more than 4 mobs you want Rylaks. In tyricannical weeks with in instances with nasty bosses you usually want Antlers.
    If you don't want to deal with the hassle you might want to simply use Rylaks, it does not focus all your damage into Wild Spirits where you are depending that the tank does not move the mobs out (because he is oblivious or because he has to kite or whatever) and thus has a more general approach.
