wotlk pve bm gemsenchants

Besides your gear and talents, there are 3 additional ways you as a player can increase your character’s power: gems, enchants, and consumables, which make your character significantly more powerful when combined correctly. Many guilds and raid groups may not invite you at all if you don’t have the correct gems, enchants, and consumables especially when you’re playing a non-meta spec, but worry not! This guide will help you avoid that problem.

Gems

This is the only viable option. since 1 Agility > 1 Crit and a crit version of the same meta is your only other option!

As an alternative, you can use Delicate Scarlet Ruby if you don’t want to commit fully to Beast mastery. Bright Scarlet Ruby is better, but it’s not by much. You can and should use these gems in different color sockets as well if the socket bonus isn’t very beneficial.

You can use these if you need hit cap but cant get it somewhere from your gear. or if you have a very good socket bonus! (+8attack power socket bonus or 5 crit + 5 agi respectfully)

Enchants

Really easy to get, an alternative should not be needed. Note that this requires Revered with Knights of the Ebon Blade.

This requires Exalted with the Sons of Hodir, so if you can’t get it in time, you can use Wintergrasp enchant if you can’t get sons of hodir exalted in time instead.

this is the highest agility cloak available for you. – which is the best available stat when it comes to cloak

Is your best primary stat and has the highest amount of it.

+20 Hit is a good alternative if Hit rating is needed but you really don’t want to be enchanting for hit unless it is a last resort.

Hit is most efficient in order from gear > gems > enchants.

the only option for belt in the game.

Your only pants option.

Your best stat and the highest amount of the stat.

Only for enchanters – non enchanters cannot put any enchant on their rings.

Don’t get one-handers as BM, they usually have way less Attack Power – Don’t get https://wotlkdb.com/?item=38981 either, it’s fine on other specs but doesn’t scale with the pet, this makes it awful for BM.

Consumables

There is no viable alternative

This is your best and cheapest option, adding an alternative would be misleading.

Alternative: https://www.wotlkdb.com/?item=40211 – but these are weaker than Wild Magic

Not used in Wrath for raiding

Not used in Wrath for raiding unless you miss a particular buff

I'm Jamie I have played WotLK since launch in 2008, until its demise when the lich died, after Cata and MoP I was done with retail and rekindled that spark in 2015 til 2022. Which means I've spent give or take ~10 years on this expansion alone. I've always played hardcore - going for either realm firsts or higher. I stream on https://www.twitch.tv/jamielolx2 sometimes for 100 hours in a row during Wrath once it releases. Currently playing in Avatar on Earthshaker EU, Knokploeg on Gehennas EU and Instinct on Faerlina-US preparing for another dose of fresh wrath. I've played 28 specs - missing feral and enhancement but have a slight forte towards healers and ranged DPS.
