On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Rogue DPS in WoW Classic.


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.


WoW Classic Phases

As stated by Blizzard, WoW Classic will have six phases, starting with Molten Core, Onyxia's Lair, and Maraudon, and ending with Naxxramas and the Scourge Invasion. This guide currently contains information relevant to Phase 1.

In order to get ready for raiding, it is recommended that you follow this guide in order to learn which gear to gather for maximizing DPS before ever setting foot in raids, and probably also before getting your first epic loot.

Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair are the first raids in WoW Classic, and will probably award you with your first pieces of epic gear. While most of the gear found here is easily replaceable later, there are a few pieces, such as Striker's Mark Icon Striker's Mark and Bloodfang Hood Icon Bloodfang Hood, which will last you through Blackwing Lair./p>
