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


Pre-Raid BiS Gear for Warlocks

Once you hit Level 60, you will want to start getting gear for raiding, PvP, or just to be stronger while you are out exploring the world. This is a list of the best gear to get before stepping into Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair.

One important thing to watch out for is your chance to hit. Remember that you only want to get a 16% increased chance to hit, no more. If you end up getting more than that on your gear, make sure to swap pieces around to ensure that you are not wasting stats.

Another important note for Warlock is that shadow damage is by far your best stat early on. If you find a strong green item that has "of Shadow Wrath" in its name (meaning it offers a ton of +Shadow Damage) then it could very well be worth using as part of your Pre-Raid BiS set.

Slot Item Source
Helm *Green Lens Icon Green Lens (of Shadow Wrath) Crafted through Engineering
Neck Star of Mystaria Icon Star of Mystaria Balnazzar in Stratholme
Shoulders Felcloth Shoulders Icon Felcloth Shoulders Crafted through Tailoring
Back *Archivist Cape Icon Archivist Cape (of Shadow Wrath) Archivist Galford in Stratholme

Legs Skyshroud Leggings Icon Skyshroud Leggings Highlord Omokk in Lower Blackrock Spire

Wands Skul's Ghastly Touch Icon Skul's Ghastly Touch Skul in Stratholme

*All of these are items that drop with random stats. You will be looking for "Shadow Wrath," which gives +Shadow Damage. This can sometimes be hard to farm, especially when dealing with multiple items, so make sure you have reasonable alternatives until you can get the correct drop.
