Mage Heirlooms

31 May

Welcome to the Mage Heirlooms Guide for patch 6.2. This post will cover all three of the Mage specs, including the optimal enchants. Please keep in mind that heirlooms are designed for leveling, and the choices of which pieces of gear to use as well as which enchants are designed towards leveling rather than raiding. In many cases the choices are the same, but if something seems odd then I’ve likely chosen it for a reason. Feel free to ask if you’re confused or care to offer other comments or suggestions. In the long run, as long as you’re wearing heirlooms with the right primary stats on it, it doesn’t necessarily matter which ones you choose.

Arcane (DPS)

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Tattered Dreadmist Mask N/A
Neck Eternal Horizon Choker Gift of Haste
Cloak Ancient Bloodmoon Cloak Gift of Haste
Shoulder Tattered Dreadmist Mantle Greater Crane Wing Inscription
Chest Tattered Dreadmist Robe Peerless Stats

Ring 2 Dread Pirate Ring Gift of Haste
Main Hand Dignified Headmaster’s Charge Elemental Force
Trinket 1 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A
Trinket 2 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A

If you don’t have access to the enchants mentioned above, you may choose others. Your stat priorities are as follows (from Icy-Veins.com):

Intellect > Mastery > Haste > Multistrike > Critical Strike > Versatility

Fire (DPS)

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Tattered Dreadmist Mask N/A
Neck Eternal Horizon Choker Gift of Haste
Cloak Ancient Bloodmoon Cloak Gift of Haste
Shoulder Tattered Dreadmist Mantle Greater Crane Wing Inscription
Chest Tattered Dreadmist Robe Peerless Stats
Legs Tattered Dreadmist Leggings Greater Cerulean Spellthread

Ring 2 Dread Pirate Ring Gift of Haste
Main Hand Dignified Headmaster’s Charge Elemental Force
Trinket 1 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A
Trinket 2 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A

If you don’t have access to the enchants mentioned above, you may choose others. Personally, I would lean towards Crit for extra Pyroblast procs. Your stat priorities are as follows (from Icy-Veins.com):

Intellect > Haste > Mastery > Critical Strike > Multistrike = Haste > Versatility


frost
Frost (DPS)

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Tattered Dreadmist Mask N/A
Neck Eternal Horizon Choker Gift of Multistrike
Cloak Ancient Bloodmoon Cloak Gift of Multistrike
Shoulder Tattered Dreadmist Mantle Greater Crane Wing Inscription
Chest Tattered Dreadmist Robe Peerless Stats
Legs Tattered Dreadmist Leggings Greater Cerulean Spellthread
Ring 1 Signet of the Third Fleet Gift of Multistrike
Ring 2 Dread Pirate Ring Gift of Multistrike
Main Hand Dignified Headmaster’s Charge Elemental Force
Trinket 1 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A
Trinket 2 Discerning Eye of the Beast N/A

If you don’t have access to the enchants mentioned above, you may choose others. Stat priorities from Icy-Veins depend on what Tier 7 talent you decide to use, which of course doesn’t matter until you’re level 100. You can see their list here.

I would focus on Multistrike where you can, and Haste otherwise.

    I guess I should have checked to see if the Crane Inscription required level 85 before buying it on the AH. I’m an idiot. Will try to get my money back

      It’s a lie. Apply it with a level 85 character and it will work on a level 1 wearing it.
