I think it's good to have a BiS thread I can bookmark and look up if I need to check items quickly when finding them or planning a purchase. I plan to concentrate on items who give the best unbuffed dps or overall best stat-budget. Of course this can change for different builds, but I'm planning to update this thread on a regular basis (and possibly for different builds). I'm not the best wizard in town, so feel free to add your own 2 cents. The following items are considered BiS. Rare items can of course be used, but right now you're more likely to find a legendary than a rare with comparable stats. Just take the max rolls on these as a reference point. As a general rule, you want items that have INT + CRIT CHANCE + CRIT DAMAGE + ATTACK SPEED on it. * Updated Sept. 21th 2012 * (First in list = highest potential for overall best rolls) Helm: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/tal-rashas-guise-of-wisdom]Tal Rasha's Guise of Wisdom[/DB] [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/mempo-of-twilight]Mempo of Twilight[/DB] Can get better rolls than Andy's if you're lucky [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/andariels-visage]Andariel's Visage[/DB] Guaranteed CRIT and IAS Amulet: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/tal-rashas-allegiance]Tal Rasha's Allegiance[/DB] Shoulders: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/vile-ward]Vile Ward[/DB] Aside from high INT and ALL RES, not so special but at least they look cool. Chest: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/tal-rashas-relentless-pursuit]Tal Rasha's Relentless Pursuit[/DB] Absolute BiS. No way around it. Gloves: Right now rares seem to be the absolute BiS for this slot. Look for 150+ INT, 8%+ CritChange, 50% CritDamage and 8-9% IAS Wrist: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/lacuni-prowlers]Lacuni Prowlers[/DB] Guaranteed IAS and Movements speed. Look for additional INT and CritChance Rings: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/zunimassas-pox]Zunimassa's Pox[/DB] Zuni Ring and Boots are the preferred items to get our +130 Int bonus from this set. The second slot can be any rare ring with our standard stats. AFAIK other leg/set rings dont roll all 4 of our desired stats right now. ?[DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/stone-of-jordan]Stone of Jordan[/DB] Depending on the rolls, the dps gain won't reflect on your stats immediately. Still, the guaranteed 20-30% increased damage against Elites makes this ring a real killer. Belt: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/the-witching-hour]The Witching Hour[/DB] Absolute BiS. Guaranteed INT, IAS and CRIT DAMAGE. You just need to get lucky with the other rolls Pants: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/innas-temperance]Inna's Temperance[/DB] A Monk/DH set? Of course, if you value dps over survivability! These pants always have the dex affix on them, so you'll want these to roll with Int and make sure IAS is at 9%. 1% Crit is not much, but it's nice to have, too! [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/depth-diggers]Depth Diggers[/DB] Those pants back you up with with high all res and if you're lucky high INT and VIT. Guaranteed MF & GF. Rare pants are fine, too. Feet: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/zunimassas-trail]Zunimassa's Trail[/DB] Needed for our setbonus (if you're going for it). Otherwise you can use [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/ice-climbers]Ice Climbers[/DB] if you get lucky rolls. Weapon: A good rare wand with 1200dps, 80-100% crit damage and socket will be the best right now, but they are harder to find than a needle in a hayball. [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/chantodos-will]Chantodo's Will[/DB] Standard choice for most builds [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/echoing-fury]Echoing Fury[/DB] If you don't need AP on crit (like when playing Archon builds) you should totally go for this weapon. Beastly. ?[DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/sloraks-madness]Slorak's Madness[/DB] IMO a very good wand but looking at the AH it's very rare to get a good roll on the DPS. Many 800dps versions with otherwise perfect stats are often available on the AH for as low as 25mill (EU)! Source: [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/chantodos-force]Chantodo's Force[/DB] [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/tal-rashas-unwavering-glare]Tal Rasha's Unwavering Glare[/DB] Probably the coolest looking source in the game. [DB=http://diablonut.incgamers.com/item/triumvirate]Triumvirate[/DB] Very nice source for Archon builds because of the increased Arcane damage.
