WotLK Classic Assassination Rogue Pre-Raid Gear
On this page, you will find the best pre-raid gear for Assassination Rogue in WotLK Classic.
Stats for Gear in Phase 1 as Assassination Rogue
The overall goal of Assassination Rogues in Wrath Classic when gearing is to ensure that they meet two caps: the Poison Hit cap and the Expertise cap.
You can read more about these on our stats page linked below, as well as the relative worth beyond reaching the caps.
Emblems of Heroism and Valor
Below you can find the items to buy with your emblems in Phase 1.
Note that, other than the Mirror of Truth and Mantle of the Lost Vanquisher, none of these items are part of your Phase 1 "ideal" BiS, so you should prioritize buying the other items based on what you need to replace.
Emblems of Heroism
- Mirror of Truth
- Jorach's Crocolisk Skin Belt
- Pendant of the Outcast Hero
- Heroes' Bonescythe Gauntlets
- Heroes' Bonescythe Breastplate
Pre-Raid Best-in-Slot (BiS) for Assassination Rogue in Phase 1
Note that there are pieces of gear from TBC that can still be good choices at Level 80, but they are never your BiS. We have opted to not include them in the list, due to the difficulty in obtaining them if you do not already have them.
