**If you came here to find OP iLvL kind of exploity Gear, this is the wrong Thread for you** Level 1 Guide by @Jonnes HERE. It has many of the same things in common with 10's Level 14 Guide by @ShinyHero is... waiting for him to make it Level 19 Guide by @DigitalChemyst HERE. Also has things in common with 10's Level 20 Guide by @DigitalChemyst HERE. F2P/Vets/20's all have things in common with 10's If you have a high Level Character to boost your 10's for Dungeon drops, use THIS Guide by @zazzyfraz Enchant Scaling Thread by @Swoops HERE First let me say that I'm approaching gear in Shadowlands for my 10's the way we used to back in TBC/WotLK. To that point I'm looking at Stat layout numerically. A brief history of Twinking had Characters trying to get ONE better. 1 Stat, 1 Armor, 1 Health, etc. This Guide will be based off of standardized iLvL 14 gear for Level 10's. Currently in Pre-Patch, Level 10's with full iLvL 14 Blues and the base iLvL 20 Artifact Weapon, no Gems, no Enchants, no Buffs, etc, are stupidly OP. We're nearly back to the scaling levels of WotLK. Once any 10 gets full BiS (based off your Armor type) you'll be as close to God Tier as any Twink Level will likely get in Shadowlands. A quick point on Tertiary Stats which are Speed, Leech, Avoidance and Indestructible. Certain Classes/Specs like Hunter get Leech as part of that Spec so I would prioritize Speed above all on those Specs. If you have a Class/Spec that doesn't gain any inherent Leech, I'd try for 1-2 pcs max, then Speed for the rest. Leech scales poorly at 10, something like 0.62% per 1 Stat. I haven't yet tested Avoidance but as nearly unkillable as 10's are I doubt it would gain enough added Mitigation to give up Speed, unless you're building a pure Miti-Tank for Level 10 Raids against say, SL Elites once they're out and older World Bosses or even Raiding Suramar's Zone. Indestructible is useless, repairs at 10 are barely noticeable. To the Tankers out there, Dodge scales horribly at 10. 1 Dodge = 0.31% I will keep updating this with Stat scaling as I figure them out. Also, credit to @Twinkit for verifying that the bonus 5% Main Stat doesn't start until Level 27, so wear whatever works best for your Toon. Lets look at what actually drops for Level 10's in Shadowlands: Uncommon (Green): iLvL 12 [Quest rewards only] Superior (Blue): iLvL 14 [This is our 'Base' iLvL] Epic (Purple): iLvL 15/16 Legendary (Orange): iLvL unk [would only be Legion World Bosses IF they scale] Artifact (Weapon only): iLvL 20 base + 4 with both Relics (with Epic Relics) Taking into account what the Stat itemization is (numerically) for an iLvL 14 Blue for each Armor slot, I have devised a reasonable BiS list by Expansion not by specific item. Bear in mind there are literally thousand of items in the Game and no way I could possibly catch every single thing, including Quest rewards, so take this list with a grain of salt. Lets do this. Legion BoE Epics Drops by Armor slot and weight. As far as we've found here are the basic rules to getting one of these to drop and for which Level: Character Levels 1-10 = Level 7 / iLvL 17 Character Levels 11-15 = Level 12 / iLvL 21 Character Levels 16-19 = Level 17 / iLvL ? Character Level 20 = Level 20 / iLvL 28 We're still trying to farm these on a variety of Character Levels so the above could certainly change. Now onto what drops (I think this is the full list, hard to be certain) and bear in mind we believe the double Socket listing is incorrect. Most of us that had 98/99/101's in Legion only ever got Socket + Tertiary.

I would like to credit @ShinyHero and @Winterly for pst'ing me items they got as drops for me to verify certain scaling with item types like Legion Epic BoEs. If anyone finds outstanding Gear that beats what I have listed (and isn't something bound to be nerfed) please reply and I'll add it. What I will not add is iLvL 44 WoD Rare drops, Garrison Gloves/Ring Mission rewards and the Lumbermill Trinket unless it's been a hot minute and Blizz decided NOT to nerf them. The Legion end Zone Quest rewards are now listed under the Honorable Mention section. Also, we need to figure out how to get Legion Epic BoE's to scale TO Level 10. I've seen them Level 7, then Level 12 but nothing in between: EDIT1: Credit @Sponsor Get out there and test World Bosses from various XPacs to see if anything scales down to Level 10. EDIT2: Tool Tips from Professions to Vendors are in many cases completely wrong. There is a lot of testing to be done to determine what CAN and what can NOT be used at 10 from either source. I added a section for Tested-Failed. EDIT3: I can now confirm that at least some World drops now scale with Level. I found Light-Sealed Casque on various Realms' AH all at different Character Levels.
