TL;DR, Here is a Wowhead search listing ALL BiS greens for 39's. Enjoy! BiS Search *EDITED FOR MORE CLARITY* These observations apply to all green BoE's in the 1-49 bracket(and potentially beyond). First off, let's begin by saying MOST greens DO NOT drop as req. x9, ilvl +5(req. 39, ilvl 44, so on and so forth). Best reason I can come up with for this is has to do with the items ORIGINAL item level. Working from that assumption, I have come to observe that the items will scale in increments of 3 from the original item level, based on the level of the character that received the item. This means that items WILL NOT scale to req. 39, ilvl 44. Reasons for this are unclear. Therefore given an item that is sufficiently far from your optimal item level(for 39s that would be ilvl 44), an item will instead scale in increments of 3. Examples include the following drops on both 39,43, and 44 characters: Thaumaturgist Staff dropped as req. 39, ilvl 42 High Chief's Shield dropped as req. 39, ilvl 42 Glorious Gauntlets dropped as req. 36, ilvl 39 Glowstar Rod dropped as req. 34, ilvl 37 This means items like Cabalist Cloak, Champion's Cape, and Tracker's Belt will be Best in Slot(BiS) for level 39, because they were originally +5 item levels above 39(ilvl 44). If the items scales, it will not be BiS because it only gets +3 item levels(ilvl 42). Therefore my theory is that ALL +5 ilvl items, up to ilvl 54, will be BiS up to level 49 (excluding blues and purples). Now how to get these items to drop for you. Due to the conclusions above, I can say that chest farming is THE most efficient way to farm these items. Treasure chests drop loot that is UNSCALED, i.e. ORIGINAL item level. Grab your favorite treasure hunting addon, and go to the different zones and dungeons that would have been for the 30-40 range before all of the scaling happened in patch 7.3.5. My favorite dungeon to do this in is Uldaman, as the chest at the end of the instance typically drops 1-3 greens. As for farming out in the world like in Silithus or Burning Steppes, I DO NOT recommend bringing a lvl 42-44 XPoff character to farm due to the fact that loot will only scale +3 item levels.
