Mage Season of Mastery Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List

This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for getting ready for raiding in the current Season of Mastery phase.

You will be looking for gear with a lot of (Frost) Spell damage, Spell Hit, and Spell Crit, with Stamina being a secondary, but still important (especially for Soul of Iron hardcore players) concern. This includes gear such as Boreal Mantle Icon Boreal Mantle and the infamous Bloodvine Set, which you can buy and is extremely powerful when compared to most other pre-raid BiS pieces!

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.
