Burning Crusade Classic Phase 2 will launch on Sep 15, so now is the best time to obtain gear & newer avenues of gearing.
Gear is a huge part of TBC classic. Even if it is 0.1% stronger than your opponent's, you should obtain it, thus making your character more powerful. Today
is going to share with you some efficient ways to get more gear.
Most players choose to level up by doing questing, especially in Phase 2. Some quests in Outland offer some quite strong gear for many classes, such as Pre-Raid BiS Gear.
In order to finish the Overlord quest, you have to kill Arazzius the Cruel and assemble or join a group of 3 - 4 players of level 60 to take it on. After
that, it will reward you with one of the strongest Pre-Raid BiS Trinkets. There
are a lot of quests that offer Pre-Raid BiS Gear, so you should always check
your Pre-Raid BiS list before you start leveling. If you play a Holy Priest at
level 70, you shouldn't pick the Shadow Spec rewards from those quests. Otherwise,
you'll be missing out on this easy quest gear.
The next easiest way to grab some strong gear at level 70 is on the reputation vendors. If you reach level 70, you're more likely to
obtain a lot of reputations, and that's a perfect time to go to those
reputation Quartermasters around the world and look for what they can offer.
Let's talk about the new gear in Phase 2: PvP faction gear. This gear is not only good for PvP but also quite strong for PvE. It is worth buying and
on par with Normal Dungeon and Heroic Dungeon gear. In some cases, the best
gear is the Glove, which provides a special bonus for each class. For
example, Hunter increases multishot damage by 5%, and Paladin's Judgment
of the Crusader does more damage, so make sure to go over
reputation vendors, grab some gear to help you out in PvP, and have some
decent gear for PvE.
BoE Blue Gear
Classic TBC has run its course for over 3 months, and now we have an opportunity to get some strong gear for low prices, such as the Valanos' Longbow.
It is easy to obtain Valanos' Longbows for Hunters as they can farm Steamvault Heroic Dungeon or Shattered Halls Heroic Dungeon to get reputations. It dropped a
lot in value, going down to 16 gold currently on my server - Pyrewood
Village EU. I remembered this item needed over 100 gold at the start of Phase 1
as the demand was increasing. Now the demand is at its lowest point, so the
price dropped a lot. Make sure to go over a list of BoE blue gear for your
class and check what you can obtain on the Auction House, and you'll be
surprised by how cheap some items are now.
Crafted gear is similar to BoE Blue Gear, and by extension, the price of crafted gear has dropped significantly, and that gear is still Pre-Raid BiS or even BiS in certain cases.
Primalstrike Vest is a very strong item to have. In fact, I'm still wearing mine deep into Phase 1, and this gear dropped in value significantly since the start of Phase
1. Same thing for Spellstrike gear for casters, Spellcloth has dropped in
value as all the alchemists do their cooldowns every day. Try to
look for this strong crafted gear for your class, farm some WoW Classic TBC gold, and craft & buy gear.
This is probably faster than doing dungeons.
Normal Dungeons are the place where you'll spend most of your time to gear up your character, as you can get some strong gear from here. Heroic Bosses have
the same drop table as their Normal Dungeons with the addition of one or
two pieces generally, so most people will spend most of their time in
Normal Dungeons, farming bosses over and over again until their Pre-Raid
BiS items drop.
It is different from Normal Dungeons as you can only do each Heroic Dungeon once per day, and they're significantly harder than their normal
counterparts. For example, Blood Furnace is an absolute nightmare to do, while
Remparts is very easy. But Heroic Dungeons can offer strong gear, notably
an epic from the end boss of each dungeon. More importantly, the Badges of
Justice are from every boss.
There are a lot of geared players around the world. And in Phase 2, those geared players will still be doing Heroic Dungeons until the expansion is over, so as a fresh player, you can get gear quite easily in Heroic Dungeons.
PvP is not everyone's cup of tea, but there are some reasons to consider doing PvP. At first, Arena Season 2 is active in Phase 2, while the gear
of Season 1 is on sale. It is very strong for many classes, even in PvE. For
example, Enhancement Shaman's Best in Slot weapon in Phase 1 is the Gladiator
These old raids (Blackwing Lair, AQ40, and Naxxramas) can still offer some decent gear for many classes. For example, Thunderfury is the best tanking weapon in the game.
If you're in a high-end guild, they'll most likely do old raids every week. It requires 40 players, and there will be a spot for you, so tune in on the fun for some decent gear along the way.
This is probably the hardest way to get gear in TBC. They are very difficult to kill, especially on PvP servers. Even getting a tag for one is a feat
on its own because you'll be competing with other top-tier guilds on your
server. World Bosses only spawn twice every week, assuming they get killed
right away, so your chances of getting gear from those are quite slim. It
means that they offer very strong gear, so if you run out of other options, you could consider World
