Guide:Best in slot base types

From Path of Exile Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Below is a summary of the lists of helmets, body armour, gloves, boots, and shields showing just the base items with the highest defence stats, per type, per slot. This is organized into one BiS page to be easily visible on one screen while mapping or editing item filters and learning about what base types to look for, within your desired defensive stat(s).

This table includes base types that can drop from league mechanics such as Ritual (e.g., Penitent MaskPenitent MaskArmour: (185-212)
Evasion: (185-212)

), Heist (e.g., Heat-attuned Tower ShieldHeat-attuned Tower ShieldChance to Block: 23%
Armour: (330-379)
Movement Speed: -3%
Requires Level 70, 159 StrScorch Enemies when you Block their Damage(Scorched Enemies have their Elemental Resistances lowered by 10% for 4 seconds)
), and Expedition (e.g., Runic SabatonsRunic SabatonsWard: (102-117)Requires Level 69, 46 Str, 46 Dex, 46 Int). Sometimes (though not always), non-regular basetypes can have stats that exceed regular basetypes, and are best in slot even if the implicit modifiers are removed via corruption or Eldritch currency.
