TBC Classic Warrior Fire Resistance Gear Guide

Last updated on Oct 14, 2021 at 20:37 by Abide 2 comments

On this page, we cover a separate gearset for Warriors in TBC Classic that is focused around maximizing your Fire resistance stat, which can be especially useful in specific scenarios. If you would like to see our other gear recommendations for Warriors, they are also linked below.

1.

Fire Resistance Gear

Fire resistance gear is needed by tanks in particular for multiple different bosses. For example, one tank will need full Fire resist gear to tank a boss inside Serpentshrine Cavern, Leotheras the Blind, during his demon form. Typically this is done by a Warlock, but can be done by anyone. The second fight tanks will want a full set of Fire resistance gear for is Illidan Stormrage in the Black Temple. Regardless, it may be useful for a DPS player to also know about some of these items.

All of the Epic-level Fire protection gear in TBC Classic is acquired from either crafting, quest rewards, or from the Badge of Justice Icon Badge of Justice vendor. Combining these pieces of gear, some enchants, consumables, and raid buffs, you should easily be able to reach an acceptable level of Fire resistance.

In TBC Classic, the resistance cap for players against bosses is 365. Anything past 365 will be wasted. Combine the options listed below with your current gear to make the best set possible while maintaining the Defense cap (490) and staying as close to 365 as possible.

Fire Resistance Consumables

Players can also find Fire resistance through consumables. Some of these offer additional resistances, while some will absorb a moderate amount of Fire damage.

  • Major Fire Protection Potion Icon Major Fire Protection Potion

Fire Resistance Buffs

Lastly, one of the best ways to get some easy Fire resistance is to use some of the party-wide buffs available to your raid. Multiple different classes can buff you with up to 70 Fire resistance by simply using some of their lesser-used abilities. These abilities do not stack; only the strongest one will be applied.
