SoD Hunter Best in Slot for Phase 2

Here are the SoD Hunter Best in Slot for Phase 2.

In this guide series, we'll look at your ideal best-in-slot items heading into Phase 2. These guides will be updated before and during Phase 2 to represent the BiS list best as new items are added, discovered and or theory crafted. If you have any issues with the guide or want to help improve it, head to our Contact Us page and send me an email. But please be nice, and remember, it's only a game.

You can find our other class BiS lists below, with links to the pages once those are live. Each page will be for a specific Class, with individual specs lists (such as 3 builds for Paladin 1 for each spec) when that is suitable.

Note: If you are reading this list before Phase 2 launches or within the first week, treat these guides as a “pre-raid bis” as we won't have full information about certain items prior to this period.
