Gearing is relatively unimportant in Wrath of the Lich King compared to previous expansions. Stats are far more balanced, and there are far more options for every slot. Indeed, the differences between different items of the same item level are almost negligible, so you can be almost completely correct by simply wearing any relevant gear of the highest item level available to you. Therefore, the concept of “BiS” is a bit outdated in this expansion. However, it can still be helpful to know which pieces to look out for.
Here, I will list the best pre-raid and raid items expected to be available in Phase 1 (Naxxrammas, Eye of Eternity, Obsidian Sanctum) of Wrath of the Lich King.
Feral DPS Best in Slot
Pre-raid sets show the best available gear that you should aim for when not raiding. This list only includes gear that can be earned outside of weekly lockouts — that means no raid gear and no gear bought with arena points. It does however include gear earned with honor (even if an arena rating is required, as this is not time-gated) and through heroic dungeons.
We expect Phase 1 to include Naxxramas, Obsidian Sanctum, and the Eye of Eternity. This list will show all the best gear available, based on what we think Phase 1 of Wrath will be.
