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.
