Frost Mage Tier 5 Best in Slot List

This is a list of gear that is considered to be the best in each slot. The items on the list come from TBC dungeons and professions. As world boss loot is very hard to get for most players, this set does not include any world boss loot. It also uses only crafted gems.

The list below is following the stat priority of Hit until cap > Spell Damage > Spell Haste > Spell Crit and assumes no Hit Chance raid buffs. You can see an explanation for this priority on our stats page for Frost Mage below.

Other Frost Mage Best in Slot (BiS) Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Frost Mage, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If your character is still progressing through the content of Tier 4, then you may wish to consult its best in slot list instead.
