    [WORK IN PROGRESS]

    With enchants and gear working in Instanced PvP again, I thought I should make a list of Best in Slot gear for Mages, since that is what I'm playing. However, I realized that this is only scratching the surface for us, so I wanted to start compiling a list for everyone.

    If you are confident that you know Best in Slot for a different class, please make your list here. I will compile each BiS List into a total guide after we have reached a consensus for each class (and relevant spec).

    NOTE: I understand that there will probably be different opinions, based on preference. The point of this post is to provide new users with a general gearing guideline. If you believe your prioritization is better, please state your reasoning.


    Class-Wide Knowledge
    1. On Ring enchants, use the Binding of version, as this will be +2 Secondary Stat in instanced PvP.
    2. Titanforged Legion Pre-Patch loot is still viable in many slots, for most classes. If you have such gear, we recommend comparing the stats on each piece with the Best In Slot option here.

    Arcane Mage

    Stat Priority: Intellect > Vers >= Haste > Crit
    Stat Weighting Theorycrafting: 1.5 Intellect = 5 Versatility

    I believe this is the optimal stat priority, as it provides defensive bonuses via Versatility, which is helpful for both (1) PuG's and (2) Getting burst in a Premade setting, as Mages have generally low HP Pools at 1.5k - 1.9k.

    Gear
    Helm: Green Lens of the Aurora ; Spellpower Goggles Xtreme Plus; Master Engineer's Goggles
    Neck: Eternal Amulet of the Redeemed
    Shoulder: Exquisite Sunderseer Mantle (Can be enchanted - Providing the highest Spellpower); Darkcloth Shoulders of the Aurora; Krom'gar Champion's Linen Shoulderpads;
    Cloak: Tumultuous Cloak of the Aurora
    Chest: Mystic's Wrap; Auxiliary’s Robe of the Aurora (iLvl 26); Tree Bark Jacket
    Bracer: Mindthrust Bracers (Lvl20); Auxiliary’s Cuffs of the Aurora; Krom'gar Legionnaire's Linen Bracers
    Gloves: Magefist Gloves (iLvl 28); Phoenix Gloves; Greenweave Gloves of the Aurora
    Belt: Keller's Girdle (iLvl 28); Sanguine Belt; Enumerated Wrap of the Aurora
    Legs: Tattered Dreadmist Leggings (with Enchant); Phoenix Pants (with Ironscale Leg Armor)
    Boots: Krom’gar Sergeant’s Linen Footwraps; Auxiliary’s Treads of the Aurora (iLvl 26)
    Ring 1: Lorekeeper’s Ring/Advisor’s Ring (Faction-Specific); Recruit’s Ring of the Aurora
    Ring 2: Black Widow Band (GF - Available for purchase); Recruit’s Ring of the Aurora
    Trinket 1: Defending Champion
    Trinket 2: Discerning Eye of the Beast
    Weapon: Recruit’s Mageblade of the Aurora (iLvl 26); Durak’s Wand
    Off-Hand: Recruit's Endgame of the Aurora (iLvl 26)


    Enchants
    Neck: Mark of the Hidden Satyr
    Shoulder: Greater Crane Wing Inscription
    Cloak: Intellect; PvP Power
    Chest: Glorious Stats
    Bracer: Major Stamina (for Survivability); Major Spellpower
    Gloves: Glove Reinforcements (for Survivability - Requires BoE); Major Spellpower
    Pants: Powerful Ghostly Spellthread (3 Int / 2 Vers > 3 Int / 2 Stam); Ironscale Leg Armor
    Boots: Boar’s Speed or Tuskarr’s Vitality (Same Stats)
    Ring 1: Binding of Versatility
    Ring 2: Binding of Versatility
    Weapon: Elemental Force
    Off-Hand: Major Intellect

    Please post your own class's list in the same format, including your stat priority.

    I can add that in future iterations. For now, focusing on Gear and Enchants. I personally haven't had the chance to try out the Allied races, and we're getting more with BFA launch.

    Awesome list; so applying the leg armor on Phoenix pants on a higher level doesn’t make them soulbound?

    Very nice guide indeed!

    Best gloves by far is Greenweave Gloves of the "aurora" 4/4 with a "Glove Reinforcements enchant" unless you go for a weird intellect setup if that's the case you'd go with Phoenix Gloves.

    I can understand your decision to think so. Survivability is very important for this expansion on Mages. I will add Greenweave to this list. I carry a pair myself.

    This is mostly designed for new players. I'm not sure a Glass Cannon set will help noobies who are just starting out. If you wanna do 2 sets I can add a bonus list?

    My Veteran

    here I go. Feel free to split these into spoilers when adding them to the OP @Tollo

    open to changes and edits just let me know what you feel can be improved.
    Discipline Stat Priority: Intellect > Vers > Crit > Haste
    Shadow Stat Priority: Intellect > Crit > Vers > Haste
    Holy Stat Priority > Intellect > Vers > Haste > Crit
    Discipline is the most mobile priest healing spec, therefore you want burst heals which will come out of Intellect and Vers. Being more mobile I like crit > haste, also considering your bubble can crit higher absorption.

    Shadow, the DPS spec. Intellect is flat dmg increase, crit is great to stacks imo because of all the dots you'll be keeping up at a time. Vers for flat dmg output, off healing, and dmg reduc boost, haste is not as important @ 20 as it is 29 due to lack of VT.

    Holy is the sedentary priest spec. It does mostly pure healing and utility where as disc is dmg / healing hybrid. Intellect and vers for flat increase, haste over crit because you'll want faster casts than if you were disc, and you have no bubble to crit with.
    HEAD: Green Lens of the Aurora, Spellpower Goggles Xtreme Plus, Master Engineer's Goggles
    NECK: Eternal Amulet of the Redeemed, Eternal Horizon Choker (pretty much no other choice for neck cuz use is free heal)
    SHOULDERS: Darkcloth Shoulders of the Aurora(heavy knothide armor kit,) Tattered Dreadmist Mantle
    CLOAK: Tumultuous Cloak of the Quickblade, Icebound Cloak (GFED until Midsummer,) Glowing Thresher Cape
    CHEST: Mystic Wrap (28ilvl,) Auxiliary's Robe of the Quickblade / Adaptable / Aurora
    BRACERS: Mindthrust Bracers (28ilvl,) Auxiliary's Cuffs of the Quickblade / Adaptable / Aurora, Krom'gar Legionnaire's Linen Bracers
    GLOVES: Magefist Gloves (28ilvl,) Phoenix Gloves, Gold-Flecked Gloves, Enumerated Handwraps of the Quickblade
    BELT: Keller's Girdle (28ilvl) Sanguine Belt, Enumerated Wrap of the Quickblade, Slumbersilk Waistcord
    LEGS: Tattered Dreadmist Leggings (chanted,) Phoenix Pants (Ironscale)
    BOOTS: Auxiliary's Treads of the Adaptable / Quickblade / Aurora
    RING 1: Lorekeeper's Ring (Alliance,) Advisor's Ring (Horde)
    RING 2: Black Widow Band, Recruit's Ring of the Adaptable / Quickblade / Aurora
    TRINKET 1: Inherited Insignia of the Alliance / Horde
    TRINKET 2: Discerning Eye of the Beast, Touch of the Void, Rune of Perfection
    WEAPON: Recruit's Hammer of the Quickblade / Adaptable / Aurora
    OFFHAND: Recruit's Endgame of the Quickblade / Adaptable / Aurora, Mystic Tome
    HEAD: Green Lens of the Aurora, Spellpower Goggles Xtreme Plus, Master's Engineer Goggles
    NECK: Eternal Horizon Choker, Man ' ari Training Amulet, Eternal Amulet of the Redeemed
    SHOULDERS: Tattered Dreadmist Mantle
    CLOAK: Icebound Cloak (midsummer,) Tumultuous Cloak of the Fireflash, Miner's Cape
    BRACERS: Auxiliary's Cuffs of the Quickblade,
    GLOVES: Phoenix Gloves, Magefist Gloves (28ilvl)
    BELT: Keller's Girdle (28ilvl,) Sanguine Belt, Enumerated Wrap of the Quickblade
    LEGS: Tattered Dreadmist Leggings (chanted,) Phoenix Pants (Ironscale)
    BOOTS: Auxiliary's Treads of the Quickblade / Aurora
    RING 1: Lorekeeper's Ring (Alliance,) Advisor's Ring (Horde)
    RING 2: Black widow Band, Recruit's Ring of the Quickblade / Aurora
    TRINKET 1: Inherited Insignia of the Alliance / Horde
    TRINKET 2: Rune of Perfection, Discerning Eye of the Beast, Touch of the Void
    WEAPON: Recruit's Hammer of the Quickblade / Aurora
    OFF HAND: Recruit's Endgame of the Quickblade / Aurora

    With shadow I like to play a more crit heavy set because of the dot spread. If you dont spread dots or simply just dont like crit any crit suffixed gear can be replaced with vers gear. If this is your case you may find the disc guide just as if not more helpful than this one.

    NECK:
    SHOULDERS:
    CLOAK:

    BOOTS:
    RING 1:
    RING 2:
    TRINKET 1:
    TRINKET 2:
    I Plan on doing all 3 specs. It will just take me some time as I am busy

    edits will be made accordingly to ensure spoilers work and such.
    EDIT: Removed GFED items, finished shadow gear. Intentions is that new priests will use this list.
