Mage Heirlooms

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.

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

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Tattered Dreadmist Mask 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.

 
 

Death Knight Heirlooms

Welcome to the Death Knight Heirlooms Guide for patch 6.2. This post will cover all three of the Death Knight 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.


blood
Blood Spec (Tanking)

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Burnished Helm of Might N/A
Neck Eternal Talisman of Evasion Gift of Mastery*
Cloak Ripped Sandstorm Cloak Gift of Mastery*
Shoulder Burnished Pauldrons of Might Greater Tiger Fang Inscription
Chest Burnished Breastplate of Might Peerless Stats
Legs Burnished Legplates of Might Angerhide Leg Armor
Ring 1 Captain Sander’s Returned Band Gift of Mastery*
Ring 2 Dread Pirate Ring Gift of Mastery*
Main Hand Bloodied Arcanite Reaper Rune of the Fallen Crusader
Trinket 1 Swift Hand of Justice N/A
Trinket 2 Swift Hand of Justice N/A

* While Mastery is the best stat that you can get for survivability, Multistrike is also a very good option for you. If you find that survival is not an issue, switch to Multistrike.

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):

Balanced: Strength = Bonus Armor > Multistrike > Mastery > Haste = Critical Strike > Versatility

Survival: Bonus Armor > Strength > Mastery > Haste > Critical Strike = Versatility > Multistrike

DPS Oriented: Strength > Bonus Armor > Multistrike > Critical Strike > Mastery = Versatility > Haste


frost_dk
Frost (DPS)
For Frost, there are different enchants depending on whether you are going to dual wield or use a two-handed weapon because of how your attacks and passive abilities work. While dual wielding you want to prioritize Mastery, where using a two-handed weapon you’ll want to prioritize Haste. I’ll note that below with [2H] for the two-handed enchant and [DW] for dual wielding.

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Burnished Helm of Might N/A
Neck Eternal Emberfury Talisman Gift of Mastery[DW], Gift of Haste[2H]
Cloak Worn Stoneskin Gargoyle Cape Gift of Mastery[DW], Gift of Haste[2H]
Shoulder Polished Spaulders of Valor Greater Tiger Fang Inscription
Chest Burnished Breastplate of Might Peerless Stats
Legs Burnished Legplates of Might Angerhide Leg Armor
Ring 1 Captain Sander’s Returned Band Gift of Mastery[DW], Gift of Haste[2H]
Ring 2 Dread Pirate Ring Gift of Mastery[DW], Gift of Haste[2H]
2H Weapon Bloodied Arcanite Reaper[2H] Rune of the Fallen Crusader
DW Main Hand Bloodsoaked Skullforge Reaver[2H] Rune of the Fallen Crusader
DW Off-Hand Bloodsoaked Skullforge Reaver[2H] Rune of the Razorice
Trinket 1 Swift Hand of Justice N/A
Trinket 2 Swift Hand of Justice 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):

Dual Wielding: Strength > Mastery > Multistrike > Versatility > Haste > Critical Strike

Two-Handed: Strength > Haste > Multistrike > Versatility > Critical Strike > Mastery


unholy
Unholy (DPS)

Slot Item Name Enchant
Helm Burnished Helm of Might N/A
Neck Eternal Emberfury Talisman Gift of Multistrike
Cloak Ripped Sandstorm Cloak Gift of Multistrike

New Heirlooms in 5.2?

The PTR has once again revealed the possibility of new heirlooms. For the last couple of years there have been heirloom rings that were datamined out of the PTR, but we still haven’t seen them in-game. The legs showed up at the same time as the rings, and we have had those for a while now but who knows whether these new items will really be available or not, and if so then when?

When and if these new heirlooms do become available, I will update my existing guide, or write a new one to make sure that all of your heirloom needs are covered from which ones you need or want for which class, to which enchants you’ll want to put on them as well. Until they are confirmed to be in the actual patch, I’ll just stick with this guide to give you an idea of what’s there.

This post will show you all of the new heirlooms that were found in the 5.2 patch, and compare them to their existing items so that you can see how they compare and whether or not they might be on your list of things to do once they go live.

[Update: I found a blue post yesterday that confirms that these new upgraded heirlooms will in fact be in the 5.2 patch, as well as the new shields and off-hand item. The price for the upgraded versions of the heirlooms is the same as the current version of the heirloom plus you have to turn in that old heirloom. So, if you want a level 85 heirloom, they basically cost twice as much as the original because you have to turn in a copy of the original in order to get it.]

And, for those of you who have not seen the heirloom guide yet, you can follow the link below to see which heirlooms you should purchase for any given character as well as the enchants that I suggest you put on them to even further maximize their strength.
