How to gear your rogue on Burning Crusade Classic – Phase 1?


On this page, we covered multiple aspects of the gearing process for your rogue during Phase 1. You will find 4 different guides, depending on what you look for :

– Gearing during your leveling (Questing)
– Gearing to get ready to raid (pre-BIS)
– Gearing as a strict-PVP player (BIS PvP Only)
– BiS Gearing for Phase 1 (BIS PvE/PvP)

Phase 1 BIS

Phase 1 gearing is filled with a ton of options and in this guide, Simonize offers a clear list of every piece of gear you’ll need to be optimized.

Leveling in Outland

Ready to go through the Dark Portal? Now, it’s time for you to level up and in this guide, we tried to cover the whole thing, be it the leveling specialization (dungeon leveling vs outdoor questing), the gearing process during your leveling, reputations farm, or attunements, etc. This article is a compilation of inputs coming from seven big community rogue players.

Lazy PVP'er Gearing

There’s a bunch of guides everywhere telling you to optimize yourself a ton, craft Dragonmaw, farm heroics, and raids, etc. but you are just here to enjoy rogue for the PVP side of things with no interest for heroics grinding and raids. What’s the plan if you don’t want to do all these “tryhard things”?

Phase 1 weapon options

In phase 1 of The Burning Crusade Classic, there are many different weapon options for rogues that are all very very close in power level. You can pick whichever one of these options you want and you will be totally fine. For main hand weapons Dragonmaw, Gladiator’s Slicer, Blinkstrike, Spiteblade, and Hope Ender are all fine weapon choices.
