Warlock Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair

This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the first raids in the game: Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair. This guide will assume that you are playing either the SM/Ruin build or the DS/Ruin build for raids, meaning Shadow Bolt Icon Shadow Bolt is your primary source of damage.

Warlock's Tier 1, Felheart Raiment is an alright set that gives some good stats, but has relatively lackluster set bonuses that do not offer any DPS increase. This is a great starter set if you are entering Molten Core early on and want some quick upgrades, but ultimately you will end up using other, better pieces. It is worth noting however that the set offers a fair amount of Stamina, making it a solid choice for PvP.

The list below contains gear from: raids, epic PvP sets (above rank 11) and world bosses, as well as some gear from dungeons and quests, when warranted.

Slot Item Source
Neck Choker of the Fire Lord Icon Choker of the Fire Lord Ragnaros in Molten Core
  • Rank 13 PvP set (the Rank 10 set piece also works)
  • Crafted through Tailoring
  • Exalted with the Warsong Gulch Reputation
  • Molten Core trash BoE
  • Several bosses in Molten Core
  • World drop bind on equip item

Off-hands Tome of Shadow Force Icon Tome of Shadow Force Exalted with the Alterac Valley reputation

*These items have random suffixes. You will be looking for of Shadow Wrath, which gives +Shadow Spell Damage. Since you need both the item and the correct suffix to drop, these are often hard to farm, so make sure you have reasonable alternatives until you can get the correct drop.

**While we are only listing the Horde versions of the PvP set and PvP reputation gear, equivalent versions can be found on the Alliance side, with the same requirements, cost and stats.
