Dark Knight Best in Slot (BiS)
Guide Info
Last Updated: 17 May, 2022
Patch Applicable: 6.21

6.2 2.50 GCD set

This set is generally the strongest set available currently, and has better alignment of oGCDs with your rotation than other options. Players who prefer a faster speed may want to use a different set despite this.

22-strength races (Midlander Hyur, Seeker of the Sun Miqo’te, and Sea Wolf Roegadyn) can mitigate the damage loss from their strength being slightly lower than maximum with a slightly different set: https://etro.gg/gearset/88da32ad-e4e5-4f02-b194-840aaf5cf684 All other races can use the default set.

6.2 2.45 GCD set

22-strength races (Midlander Hyur, Seeker of the Sun Miqo’te, and Sea Wolf Roegadyn) can mitigate the damage loss from their strength being slightly lower than maximum with a slightly different set: https://etro.gg/gearset/69ccd962-34bd-4da5-8989-9dc9a3feb9eb All other races can use the default set.

6.2 2.40 GCD i629 set

This set is not recommended, as it sacrifices a large amount of substats for speed, but is the best option available if you prefer this speed. No adjustments based on race are necessary for this set.

6.1 2.45 GCD set (For ultimate or players on earlier patches)

There are a couple variations on this set that can be run for ease of acquisition or for the slightly higher vitality:

  • Augmented crafted ring with Crit+SkS melds is a low single-digit expected DPS loss.
  • Augmented tome ring with Crit+SkS melds plus Ashpodelos helm with 2x Crit melds is a very low double-digit expected DPS loss.

6.1 2.50 GCD set (For ultimate or players on earlier patches)

You may opt to replace one DH meld with SkS to reach a 2.49 GCD speed. This is a very low double-digit loss in theoretical DPS, and allows for some minor clipping without causing issues with oGCD alignment.
