Warlock Pre-Raid Loot (85)

Updated: I’ve included the new drops from the Zandalari dungeons. Also, I’m listing the items that you can get from Valor points since with the increased number of point you can get per week without raiding, it’s now something you can get without stepping foot into a raid. (Obviously not including the Head and Shoulder tier pieces since those you have to raid to obtain.)

Today Cataclysm is released and we’re all starting our trek to level 85. While leveling I never feel that gear is very important, so I’ve not really bothered finding out what there is to get. However, once I hit 85 I want to know where to go so that I can get myself raid ready. The below list is for myself as much as it may be useful to other casters (which is basically only other warlocks and mages, possibly shadow priests to some extent), but do note that the list is mainly aimed towards warlocks since it will list daggers and swords for weapons and ignore maces (for shadowpriests). Mages however should be looking for the same gear I imagine.

The list is arranged by slot, with the information about where to get it in brackets behind it. I’ve ignored loot from normal dungeons since for raids I will mainly be going for the Heroic loot. There is also craftables and reputation rewards. Nore that I’ve also listed the Archeology items that are rare and somewhat random, but I figured I’d list them in case someone is lucky, and it’s nice to know what is available.

Spirit items are not included since Spirit is a useless stat for a Warlock.

In the meantime, good luck and enjoy your leveling experience!

  5. Thanks for this great list 🙂 really comes in handy while gearin for raids 🙂

    And, one of the wand option items isn’t in game 🙁
    There is no HC version of Wand of Dark Worship (Stonecore – Trash), looting this item in a HC gives you the normal, ilevel 316 version. This has been conformed by a GM.

    But still, thanks for the list 😀


  6. Another MH/OH option is the

    Elementium Spellblade (crafted Blacksmith)
    Hermit’s Lamp (950 Justice Points)

    Nice list, wish I had seen it when I started gearing. Would have saved me many searches for upgrades on wowhead 🙂
