Classic Rogue DPS Gear and Best in Slot
On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Rogue DPS in WoW Classic.
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. Pre-Raid Best in Slot List for Rogues

4. Fire Resistance Gear for Rogues
Fire Resistance is a useful stat to have for Onyxia's Lair and Molten Core progression. Usually, wearing Fire Resistance gear will amount to lower DPS, but on some of the encounters in Molten Core and in Onyxia's Lair, the survivability they offer can be life saving. In our table below, we have listed the best Fire Resistance gear that drops outside of Molten Core so you can use this to prepare for the raid ahead of time. Balancing resistance gear with your other gear is important to find the balance of survivability and DPS.
|Neck||Drakefire Amulet||Onyxia's Lair Attunement Quest|
|Cloak||Wildfire Cape||Ambassador Flamelash in Blackrock Depths|
|Wrists||Cinderhide Armsplints (of Fire Resistance)||Lord Incendius in Blackrock Depths|
|Trinket||Royal Seal of Eldre'Thalas||Quest reward from Garona: A Study on Stealth and Treachery|
You can also opt to use more of your DPS gear and use the consumable Greater Fire Protection Potion, the Lesser Arcanum of Resilience for legs and head enchants, the Enchant Cloak - Fire Resistance for your cloak, and the Flame Mantle of the Dawn shoulder enchant.
