Mage Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List

This is the gear we recommend for Frost Mages (as Arcane is too weak by itself, and most bosses in early raids are Fire immune), before setting foot in classic raid content, such as Molten Core or Onyxia's Lair. We recommend a lot of "of Frozen Wrath" gear because Frostbolt Icon Frostbolt scales well with Spell Damage, making that type of gear worth it even if it has little, or no other stats at all!

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.
