    I ended up getting the wep I wanted, socket and wf. I also got the staff socket and wf. Got a socket neck, but the boa neck heal feels to nice to give it up.


    Still hoping for off-hand/back/ring for sockets next year.

    If anyone still has any input for better gear let me know.

    What stat priority are you aiming for?

    There's so much innate crit on the BC cloth gear that you don't need to stack it anywhere else. Especially as a mage.

    For all mage specs you should be pushing for as much haste, vers and int as you can get.

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=37213/iceflow-wristwraps - If these upgrade epic bis
    or
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=1974/mindthrust-bracers&bonus=4049 - bis otherwise

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=18820/talisman-of-ephemeral-power - Highest sp boost trinket available
    or
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=19339/mind-quickening-gem - Crazy haste boost, mix with haste potion for 60%+ haste

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=39074/drape-of-distilled-hatred - BIS even if it doesn't upgrade epic tbh

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=35932/earthbinders-regenerating-band - Great boost for versatility & chance to upgrade epic

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=9447/electrocutioner-lagnut - Huge versatility boost, outweighs intellect rings

    https://www.wowhead.com/item=13085/horizon-choker - 58ilvl will be bis for intellect/vers
    or
    https://www.wowhead.com/item=88273/armsmasters-sealed-locket - For pvp

    I don't know if you managed to get this during the anniversary event, but it gives the most intellect of any offhand:

    if haste is the goal, then 5int/4hast gems should be used, if vers then 5int/5versa gems .. but i am not sure if mages use versa

    Those are TBC heroic only drops ( Also un-tradable even in the same party ) - unless there's another recipe out there now or one that has changed since October last year.

    @Thebullshift What's the end game with this mage - Max Spellpower? or Purples in every slot.

    The TW / Event Epic Gear at lower levels is often a lower item level than the equivalent Epic quest reward procs. On a level 20 it's 8 item levels lower and statistically worse by a significant amount. You may be gimping your SP just for shinny Purples.

    @hom haven't got game time on my 60's atm - Does the Original Therane's Touch have the same stats now as the TW Version? Used to be a straight 33 Spellpower no other stats.
