Mage DPS Pre-Raid Gear
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Pre-Raid content for your Mage DPS in WoW Classic. For more gearing advice, please refer to our Mage DPS Gearing and Best in Slot guide.
Mage Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List
This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for Fire Mages, setting you up to tackle the most challenging content in Phase 5, AQ40. While gear from starter raids will help you be even more prepared for the challenges of Ahn'Qiraj, you should be perfectly fine going in with our suggested pre-raid gear.
You will be looking for gear with a lot of (Fire) Spell damage, Spell Hit and Spell Crit, with Stamina being a secondary concern. Powerful frost gear such as Boreal Mantle is still listed because you can swap to these pieces when doing Molten Core, Onyxia and Blackwing Lair.
This list contains gear from: dungeons, blue PvP sets (up to rank 10) and reputation gear. While we are only listing the Horde versions of the PvP set and PvP reputation gear, equivalent versions can be found on the Alliance side, with the same requirements, cost and stats.
You can find more Mage BiS lists in our dedicated gear hub below.
