Classic WoW Mage Pre-Raid BiS Guide


**Updated for Dire Maul

This is the Pre-Raid Best-in-Slot Guide for Frost Mage.  These are the items you will want to try to acquire in order to be ready for raiding Molten Core and Onyxia.  Keep in mind, Fire does not become a viable spec for mages in World of Warcraft until Ahn'Qiraj so this guide focuses solely on Frost.
