    So with the return of Classic WoW, trying to find vanilla BIS lists for classes you haven’t played has become more difficult then I thought it would have been. My goal of this thread is to have veterans post their lists of gear for the classes they may have played in the 49s as a reference. My only experience with 49s was my warrior so I guess I’ll start with my old gear list.

    Helm: Sunscale Helmet (

    Neck: Woven Ivy Necklace (

    Shoulders: Wyrmslayer Spaulders (

    Chest: Hydralick Armor (

    Wrist: Berserker Bracers (

    Hand: Vice Grips of the Bear/Tiger ( or Plated Fist of Hakoo (

    Waist: Atal’alarons Tusk Ring (

    Pants: Elemental Rockridge Leggings ( or Sunscale Legplates (

    Boots: Defilers Plate Greaves (

    Rings: Legionaries Band ( Blackstone Ring ( Aquamarine Ring of the Bear/Tiger (

    Weapons: Ribsplitter of the Bear/Tiger ( Bonesnapper ( Doomforged Straightedge ( Axe of Rin’Ji ( Executioner’s Cleaver ( The Judge’s Gavel ( Kang The Decapitator ( Stoneslayer Sword (

    Ranged: Skull Splitting Crossbow (

    Trinkets: Rune of the Guard Captain ( Insignia of the Horde (

    I think conventional wisdom favors Embrace of the Lycan in the helm slot and the Defiler's Plate Girdle in the belt slot, but I can see a use for both of the items you posted.

    I also don't think the Aquamarine Rings gained any particular relevance until the itemization was changed, either in BC or Wrath, I can't remember which. If you want a good placeholder until phase 3, the Drakeclaw Band from ST is a good bet.

    Also, though this may be a controversial opinion, I think Precisely Calibrated Boomstick is another valuable alternative for the ranged slot, for 1v1s. The 1.5 second firing speed could help interrupt casting (or bandages). Plus 14 Agility is a nice bonus.

    I also notice you didn't list a cloak, but there are a few options here, depending on your build priorities. Blackveil Cape or Tattered Hakkari Cape would be my preference, though the latter is a bit of a question-mark for me in terms of viability. Nightfall and Sergeant's Cape might be viable choices, too.

    EDIT: I would also be remiss if I didn't mention Horned Viking Helmet for horde players.
