Destruction Warlock 9.0.5 BiS List (Top Picks)

Last updated: May 08, 2021

Welcome to our Destruction Warlock BiS List, or as we also call it, Top Picks. This is a page where you can find the statistical distribution of gear, talents, and other choices among Top 1% of the best performing Raiders of this class and specialization in World of Warcraft. This page is updated for the latest Shadowlands (SL) Patch 9.0.5 and the newest Raid – Castle Nathria.

We use Warcraft Logs to look up the list of Top Destruction Warlock Raiders as of this moment. Then we cross-check these players through Official Blizzard API and find out what each of them is using because statistically, they are very likely to already have BiS gear, talents, etc. at this point. We parse these enormous amounts of data into useful and easy to understand charts and rankings that we show you on this page.

You can quickly find out what is the current Destruction Warlock BiS (Best in Slot) gear just with the data we provide here. You can also see the best combinations of Talents, Azerite Powers, etc. This is always useful for optimizing your Destruction Warlock character because acquiring these BiS options for yourself will obviously improve your performance in Raids and PVE content in general.

Frequently Asked Questions

🏆 Is this BiS List reliable?

Yes, it is reliable. We use a very sophisticated statistical method to constantly dig through tons of data which is received from Top 1% Raiders (using Warcraft Logs and Official Blizzard API).

🎯 How is this different from BiS Spreadsheets?

We think our approach is better because we utilize statistics and Big Data approach. Also, most hand-written Spreadsheets show only single BiS item for each slot and they do not cover Boss-specific BiS, while we show multiple options for each equipment slot as well as for every Raid Boss.

🤔 Why there are separate BiS Lists for each Raid Boss?

We show data for each Raid Boss separately, because quite often some items perform better than others if we look at particular PvE encounters.

🙄 Are lower-ranked items unviable?

Of course not. Every item that we mention here is decent enough to be considered, it's just that the first one is obviously the most beneficial.
