Phase 1 Mage PvE Pre-Raid BiS and BiS list | Mage Compendium
FrostLive last edited by FrostLive
I put together a PvE pre-raid BiS and BiS list for phase 1 of Classic WoW. I added multiple alternatives for each slot to help get a good placeholder while you get the BiS item. I also the drop rates for each item so you can decide if an item is worth your time or not. Let me know if you find any mistakes, and I hope you like the video.

Hi! Eternal Crown drops from a dragonkin world boss that will not be added in phase 1 and as such is not a pre-raid BiS.
It is a world drop that can drop from any mob in the level range, I do not know why wowhead has it listed that way. Classic DB: https://classicdb.ch/?item=14332 and Itemization: https://itemization.info/item/14332 both show correctly.
@Darks_end Thanks, I stand corrected I'd thought it would be added at a later phase whoops
I was certainly very confused as well when I moused over it.

@Vitalius Also just wanted to add that the +41 frost damage is not exclusive to the eternal crown, you really just want any green cloth helm with 41 frost damage. (I just used green boes with a random enchant in place for "of frozen wrath" pieces)
