Gearing Strategy for Rogues
While a clear best in slot list is always available in WoW Classic, the items contained might be extremely hard or expensive to get. Depending on what content you intend on doing will change your gearing strategy.
This page focuses on PvE, but you can find more information on gearing a Rogue for PvP in our other guide below.
Season of Mastery Lists
As WoW Classic's Season of Mastery consists of Phases that are separate from the regular branch of Classic, we have created unique gear lists for its pre-raid and Phases. In addition, you may find it useful to look over our Fire Resistance Gear guide for your specialization, which is applicable for either version of Classic.
WoW Classic Phases
