BiS- Rune Guide

October 16, 2011

Hello everyone, this will be the first of many BiS (Best in Slot) gear guides. The aim of these BiS series of guides is not to replace the well-known multiple role BiS list compiled on the official forums. Rather, these guides serve as a quick stop without having to look through pages of PDF. I will also provide some of my own commentary.

For those who don’t know the extensive BiS list for clerics, here it is Multi-Guide Bis List (google docs)

Another link that is very useful for runes is this one here http://www.riftcrafter.com/database/pg/runes

(make sure you bookmark it, it is the best list runes I can find).

Majority of the runes here are crafted by runecrafters, however a couple of them are obtained with notoriety.

Helmet

Blazing Sagacious rune +13 wis 9.75 sp Runecrafter

Noble Guard
(pvp)
Radiant sharp rune +18 focus
+5 sp
5 sp Runecrafter
Luminous sharp rune +14 focus
+4 sp
4 sp Runecrafter

You have some choices here. If you don’t need focus, endurance or valor, then definitely go for the Blazing Sagacious rune as it provides the most SP. Personally if I have the notoriety, I would go for the Icewatch one as the SP decrease is insignificant and the endurance is very nice.

Shoulders

Radiant Dominating Rune is the better choice to stack SP.

Runeguard rune until you get enough notoriety with Order of Mathos.

Definitely the Devout Dragonslayer Rune if you have the notoriety. Just better overall.  If you need the focus then go for the focus runes.

Runic Sage’s Diviner Rune +6 int, +4 end 1.5 sp/6 sc Decorated with Library of Runemasters notoriety
Blazing Resolute Rune +11 end   Runecrafter

Blazing Resolute rune will have to do until you get enough notoriety with the pvp merchants.

The names of the Library of Runemaster runes are for the Guardian side.

Main Hander/Off Hander/Ranged

Name Stats Total sp/sc Source
Blazing Recondite Runeshard +9 sp 9 sp Runecrafter
Blazing Wisdom Runeshard +10 wis 7.5 sp Runecraftr
Incandescent Calamitous Runeshard +19 sc 19 sc Runecrafter
Radiant Ravaging Runeshard +16 sc 16 sc Runecrafter
Blazing Intelligence Runeshard +10 int 2.5 sp
10 sc
Runecrafter
Incandescent Savvy Runeshard +13 focus   Runecrafter
Blazing Savvy Runeshard +9 focus   Runecrafter

Rune for focus if you need. I went for the 19 sc here but it is just a personal preference. Blazing Recondite if you need to stack sp.

Two Hander

Name Stats Total sp/sc Source
Blazing Recondite Rune +17 sp 17 sp Runecrafter
Blazing Wisdom Rune +19 wis 14.25 sp Runecrafter
Radiant Recondite Rune +13 sp 13 sp Runecrafter
Invigorating Runeshard +50 crit (proc) 50 sc Runecrafter
Incandescent Calamitous Rune +35 crit 35 crit Runecrafter
Radiant Calamitous Rune +30 crit 30 crit Runecrafter
Blazing Intelligence Rune +19 int 19 sc Runecrafter
Incandescent Savvy Rune +24 focus   Runecrafter
Blazing Savvy Rune +17 focus   Runecrafter

If you are stacking for sp, then go with Blazing Recondite/Wisdom Rune, otherwise I would chose either Invigorating Runeshard or Incandescent Calamitous Rune. Incandescent Calamitous Rune is good for both healing/dps while the Invigorating runeshard is only good for dps as it only procs with damage spells.

  1. […] quite a while – unless you start raiding at least. For a list of what runes to put on, check out my rune guide. Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:LikeBe the first to like this […]


  2. Great guide!

    You might want to add Incandescent Tenacious Rune under feet. It gives +11 endurance and +6 spell power.


  3. Hey Dulfy! There are some new PvP faction runes that are missing from your list. The runes in question are from the new Runic Sages faction that offer a set of runes for feet at level 35 and Decorated (+6 stat/+4 endurance) for feet, and at level 50 and Revered you get a set for shoulders giving +11 stat/+25 valour.


  4. Oh, and I forgot to include that the aforementioned faction is guardian side, I sadly do not know the name of the defiant counterpart. 🙂


    • Hey, thanks for that, I updated the list!
