Fire Mage DPS Gear and Best in Slot — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Fire Mage in World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5.
1. Azerite Gear for Fire Mage
Because the Azerite Traits scale in strength with the item level of the item equipped, and with the possibility of Titanforging items, an exact list of best items is impossible to make. You should look for the high item level items with any of the Wildfire, Blaster Master, Treacherous Covenant or Firemind traits. These can drop from World Quests, Dungeons, Warfronts, PvP, reputations, etc., so you should try to do all possible content. Below, we have listed some good items to look for based on how to obtain them and the Azerite Traits they have on them.
- Head: Blazewing Hood — Jadefire Masters, Battle of Dazar'alor
- Shoulders: Giga-Charged Shoulderpads — High Tinker Mekkatorque, Battle of Dazar'alor
- Chest: Divine Fury Raiment — Champion of the Light, Battle of Dazar'alor
2. Evaluating Upgrades
The easiest way, and also the method we suggest, to compare multiple items is to use Raidbots Top Gear. Here you can input an export from the Simcraft AddOn , select the items to compare, and it will find out which of the items are best.
3. Trinket Notes for Fire Mage
Due to the prevalence of high item level trinkets and Titanforged rewarded from Mythic+ dungeon grinding there are a variety of suitable options when it comes to trinkets. It is always best to use Raidbots Top Gear to determine what your optimal trinkets are.
You can use the trinket list below as a reference of potential trinkets to aim for. The link at the bottom can be used to view a list of all trinkets.
