DPS Mage Classic BiS List (Top Picks)

Last updated: August 8, 2020

Welcome to our DPS Mage Classic BiS List, or as we also call it, Classic Top Picks. You can use this page to learn about the statistical distribution of gear choices among Top 1% of the best performing Raiders of this class and spec in WoW Classic. This page is constantly updated for the latest World of Warcraft Classic Patch and Raid: Zul'Gurub (Phase 4).

We use services like Warcraft Logs to look up the list of Top DPS Mage Raiders as of this moment. Then we cross-check these players through Official Blizzard API and find out what each of them is using because statistically, they are very likely to have BiS gear at this point. We parse these enormous amounts of data into useful and easy to understand charts and rankings that we show you on this page.

You can quickly find out what is the current DPS Mage gear just with the data we provide here. This is always useful for optimizing your DPS Mage character because acquiring these BiS options for yourself will improve your performance in Raids and PVE content in general.

Frequently Asked Questions

🏆 Is this BiS List reliable?

Yes, it is reliable. We use a very sophisticated statistical method to constantly dig through tons of data which is received from Top 1% Raiders (using services such as Warcraft Logs).

🎯 How is this different from BiS Spreadsheets?

We think our approach is better because we utilize statistics and Big Data approach. Also, most hand-written Spreadsheets show only single BiS item for each slot and they do not cover Boss-specific BiS, while we show multiple options for each equipment slot as well as for every Raid Boss.

🤔 Why are there separate BiS Lists for each Raid Boss?

We show data for each Raid Boss separately, because quite often some items perform better than others if we look at particular PVE encounters.

🙄 Are lower-ranked items unviable?

Of course not. Every item that we mention here is decent enough to be considered, it's just that the first one is obviously the most beneficial.
