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


Fire Resistance Gear for Protection Paladins

While doing Molten Core and Blackwing Lair, it is possible you will need some Fire Resistance gear, especially for Ragnaros and Vaelastrasz the Corrupt. The pieces we list below are the ones that grant significant Fire Resistance and do not drop from the raids themselves.

For tanks, it is worth using fire resistance gear for some of the harder hitting bosses that deal primarily fire damage, such as Ragnaros. Depending on your buffs and consumables, you might not even need any of this gear. Also, if you loot powerful gear with Fire Resistance on it during your raid clears, replace whatever pieces you are still wearing of the following:

Slot Item Source
Helm Gyth's Skull Icon Gyth's Skull (of Fire Resistance) Gyth in Upper Blackrock Spire
Neck Drakefire Amulet Icon Drakefire Amulet Onyxia's Lair Attunement Quest
Wrists Emberplate Armguards Icon Emberplate Armguards (of Fire Resistance) Lord Incendius in Blackrock Depths
Gloves Molten Fists Icon Molten Fists Ambassador Flamelash in Blackrock Depths
Belt Flamescarred Girdle Icon Flamescarred Girdle Maleki the Pallid in (side-entrance) Stratholme
One-Hand Alcor's Sunrazor Icon Alcor's Sunrazor World drop BoE
Shield Draconian Deflector Icon Draconian Deflector General Drakkisath in Upper Blackrock Spire

Finally, do not forget you can also complement your Fire Resistance gear with consumables such as Greater Fire Protection Potion Icon Greater Fire Protection Potion, Juju Ember Icon Juju Ember, the Libram of Resilience leg and head enchant, the Enchant Cloak - Fire Resistance Icon Enchant Cloak - Fire Resistance cloak enchant, and the Flame Mantle of the Dawn Icon Flame Mantle of the Dawn shoulder enchant.
