Warlock DPS Season of Mastery Phase 3/4 Gear
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Tier 2 / Blackwing Lair and Zul'Gurub for your Warlock DPS in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid gearing advice, please refer to our Warlock DPS Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide for the Season of Mastery.
Warlock Season of Mastery Best in Slot (BiS) List for Phases 3/4
This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the phase 3 and content, specifically the newly added raids of Blackwing Lair and Zul'Gurub. This guide will assume that you are playing either the SM/Ruin build or the DS/Ruin build for raids, meaning Shadow Bolt is your primary source of damage.
Warlock's Tier 2, Nemesis Raiment is a decent set with better stats than the tier 1, but ultimately does not provide enough incentive to utilize over the other off-pieces from the raid. There will be a couple of pieces in the BiS list, but overall the set is a downgrade from what you could potentially be wearing.
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.
|Choker of the Fire Lord
|Ragnaros in Molten Core
|Staff of the Shadow Flame
|Nefarian in Blackwing Lair
|Scepter of Interminable Focus
|Sothos and Jarien in Stratholme
|Skul's Ghastly Touch
|Skul in Stratholme
*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.
Other Best in Slot Lists
As this list is meant to be used for Warlocks in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery, we have created separate gear lists for those interested in optimizing themselves for the "main" branch of Classic instead. If you are not playing in the Season of Mastery, it is recommended that you consult this gear hub instead. In case you still need them, we have also included links to other phases of our Season of Mastery gear lists.
