Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for DPS Warriors in the Season of Mastery

This is the pre-raid gear we recommend for DPS Warriors, setting you up to tackle Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair in Season of Mastery Phase 1.

You should make sure to not go over 6% extra Hit Chance cap as a Human or Orc, when taking advantage of your weapon skill racials (also if you are a lucky Edgemaster's Handguards Icon Edgemaster's Handguards or similar +weapon skill item user), or the 9% Hit Chance cap with other races and weapons.

The Black Dragon Mail set is very valuable, as it provides a lot of Attack Power and other needed stats, and has great, easily obtainable set bonuses of 1% hit and 2% Critical Strike at two and three pieces, respectively.

Finally, look out for uncommon gear of the Tiger, which can often be found in the Auction House, as the Strength and Agility present on it makes for great DPS gear! Stamina is not as important as DPS stats, but can still make a difference, especially for Soul of Iron hardcore players.

This list contains gear from: dungeons, blue PvP sets (up to rank 10) and reputation gear. 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.
