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)

Anyone have an update for phase 2.5 now? Im thinking optimal set up may be to grab PVP gloves and boots, and get arcanist shoulders to get 3 set t1 and 2 set pvp?
