On this page, we will go over the Phase 2 best in slot gear for Mages in PvP.


PvP Best in Slot List for Mages

This is our recommended gear for PvPing as a Mage. This gear will maximize your chances in World PvP and Battlegrounds, although ultimately the outcome will result from your skill and that of your group.

You can learn more about how to leverage your unique skills in the Frost and Fire Mage PvP guides below:

You only need 3% Spell Hit to be capped in PvP, so we will not value Spell Hit highly when considering the suggested items.

Using PvP gear with Resilience is generally the way to go, but it can be useful to use some PvE items for increased DPS, especially if you have access to strong raid gear and no Gladiator gear for that slot.

Any piece you lack from the best in slot list below can be temporarily replaced by Rare-quality Honor gear or whatever questing or crafted gear you have.

In case you want to compare this list with the Mage PvE Best in Slot lists, feel free to check out the link below!
