Reaper Best-in-Slot
Guide Info
Last Updated: 11 Mar, 2023
Patch Applicable: 6.4

2.49 BiS

BiS built around a 2.49s GCD. The damage difference between this set and the 2.5s GCD set will be almost unnoticeably worse. This set does not share perfect compatibility with DRG. You can swap the DH melds on the chest to DET to have perfect compatibility with DRG for a minor single digit DPS loss (estimated at ~4 dps). A 2.49s GCD means Arcane Circle will only drift .12-.13 seconds every two minutes potentially allowing for better raid alignment. This is currently our recommended option.

2.5 GCD BiS

BiS built around have a 2.5s GCD. This Set shares full compatibility with the 2.5s GCD DRG set. The best option for our personal damage by a slight margin but at 2.5s Arcane Circle will drift .5s every two minutes. This could cause problems with alignment or fight specific needs.

What to wear before getting savage BiS?

This is a good set to start with if you plan to go into the Anabaseios savage tier. This is one of three possible sets that you can go for. The set shown above only features the crafted set with one normal raid piece. The normal raid earring beats the crafted set earring if the latter is not pentamelded.

Dragonsong's Reprise (Ultimate) BiS (6.3 Dungeon Gear + 6.45 Relic Option)

If using the scythe from DSR, meld two Direct Hit X’s and one Determination X. If you want full compatibility with DRG after acquiring the DSR weapon, change the SKS meld on the head piece to DET and then do DH DH SKS on the weapon.

If you do not have the 645 Manderville weapon, you should use the following weapon priority to determine what to use based on what you have available:
645 Manderville > DSR Scythe > 615/630 Manderville > Asphodelos Scythe

Note: The 615 and 630 versions of the Manderville weapons sync identically in DSR and are therefore the same. Use whichever you have available.

Dragonsong's Reprise (Ultimate) BiS (No 6.3 Dungeon Gear Option)

The original BiS used for DSR. Use this if you do not want to farm the dungeon gear.

The Omega Protocol (Ultimate) BiS (6.45 Relic Option)

Recommended gearset to prog TOP as of patch 6.45. The 645 Manderville Relic is slightly ahead of the TOP Scythe, putting this set slightly ahead of the other option.

The Omega Protocol (Ultimate) BiS (No Relic Option)

This is just the Abyssos 2.49 BiS, which is slightly lower in DPS than the Relic option. If using the TOP scythe, meld two Direct Hit X’s and one Skill Speed X.
