WoW SoD: List of all Warrior pre-raid BiS gear in WoW Classic Season of Discovery

Find your best weapons.

In World of Warcraft Classic Season of Discovery, Warriors are largely considered to be among the weaker classes. But with the correct BiS gear and builds, both DPS and tank Warriors can begin to reach their potential.

Various classes in Season of Discovery have unlocked new builds or entire roles thanks to the new Rune mechanic. Warriors still hold up their status as a DPS and tank class held since the game’s original launch. Locked at level 25 until the next phase, Warriors have relatively few of their best abilities and might want to ensure they are geared up before embarking on raids.

If you are a Warrior player trying to find your best items for either DPS or tank, here are the pieces of gear that you should hunt down.

Warrior BiS gear WoW SoD

The DPS and tank Warrior builds will look fairly similar as all specs, Protection, Arms, and Fury, all prioritize Strength, Stamina, and Agility as your primary skills. You can find the pre-raid gear for Arms and Fury Warriors below.

Before we start, we should stress the importance of gear for Warriors. Why? Firstly, Warrior isn’t a top-tier DPS class, so they’ll need all the help they can get. Secondly, your Warrior character can make great use of runes to branch out of their common and somewhat limited role, and having good gear will make that transition much smoother.
