Source of Best-In-Slot Gear Assessment: Rawr v2.3.5, January 8th, 2010. All optimal raid buffs assumed present. Tailoring/Enchanting profession assumed.

Current BIS up to and including Emblem of Triumph rewards, and pre-Icecrown Citadel crafted gear. (Much of ICC crafted gear is prohibitively expensive at this time.)  Emblem of Frost gear is also ignored, along with Quel’delar and several expensive BOEs.
