Leave a comment

WoW Classic is very gear dependable as we all know. In this article, I’ll cover a small portion of useful gear pieces you can obtain. If you have a high level character now it’s the time to get the hands on these. Some of these gear pieces are BoE so putting them to AH will come in handy too!

In a similar article like this, I’ve covered 10 must have WoW Classic gear pieces. You can find part 1 here and part 2 here.

Ironweave Battlesuit

Ironweave Battlesuit is a cloth item set that contains 8 pieces. It provides set bonus at 4 and 8 pieces. The set is useful for Priests, Mages or Warlocks because of the stats. All of the pieces provide stamina and intellect bonus. However, this set might be a little bit hard to obtain because of a different drop pieces.

At 4/8 set, it increases the chance to resist Silence and Interrupt effect by 10%. At 8/8 set it gives an additional +200 armor bonus which is not much significant.

Obtaining 4/8 pieces for the bonus can be significant for a fresh level 60 PvP oriented player.

Mark of the Dragon Lord

Mark of the Dragon Lord is a gear piece for finger slot. It provides a mana shield that absorbs 500 damage. On the other hand, it increases mana regeneration by 22 every 5 sec, for 30 minutes. The mana shield might not be useful, however, the mana regeneration can come really handy.

This item drops from Overlord Wyrmthalak in Lower Blackrock Spire. It has a 3% drop chance and requires level 56.

Green Whelp Armor

Green Whelp Armor is a Leather chest piece that comes from Leatherworking. On equip it has a 5% chance to put a melee attacker to sleep for 10 seconds. However, it only works for level 50 and below which is the downside of it.

This piece provides +11 Spirit and requires level 30 to equip. In addition, the gear piece is also BoE which can be sold on AH for a neat price.


Annihilator is a main-hand axe that requires level 58. Its speed and damage are not so impressive, however the chance on hit might be useful. It reduces an enemy’s armor by 200 and stacks up 3 times. This debuff can greatly increase a DPS on a boss for the group.
