Vanilla WoW Guides
Guide Type: Classes
Here you can find a list of pre-raid gear for your Mage for World of Warcraft Classic. For the slots with only a single option it’s because that piece is by far the best option for that slot. For example the Bloodvine set is BiS until AQ40. When there is two options or more, I put multiple options because they are, for the most part, equal and interchangeable depending on your personal preference and luck in dungeons. For some I also provided a second option because said piece drops from a boss no one ever does / wants to do.
