On this page, you will find the best Fire Resistance gear for your Mage DPS in WoW Classic. For more gearing advice, please refer to our Mage DPS Gearing and Best in Slot guide.


Fire Resistance Gear for Mages

While doing Molten Core and Blackwing Lair, it is possible you will benefit from some Fire Resistance gear, especially on Ragnaros and Vaelastrasz the Corrupt. The pieces we list below are the ones that grant significant Fire Resistance and do not drop from Molten Core itself. For damage dealers, it is not advisable to use resistance gear that hurts your damage potential too much, so we will only list easily accessible gear, that you might even already have for other purposes. Depending on your buffs and consumables, you might not even need any of this gear. If you loot powerful gear with Fire Resistance on it during your raid clears, replace whatever pieces you are still wearing of the following.

Helm Starfire Tiara Icon Starfire Tiara Jed Runewatcher in Upper Blackrock Spire
Neck Drakefire Amulet Icon Drakefire Amulet Onyxia's Lair Attunement Quest
