​WoW Classic Best Mage Weapons Guide

Oct-13-2020 PST

Mages don’t directly use their weapons to attack enemies, as they’re not dependant on them for dealing damage. These weapons just act as a stat stick for them, so that they can alter the high amount of natural energy in them to cast spells. Their spells can vary depending on their offensive or defensive combat class.

It is recommended that a player with mage class should stick with whatever weapon grants him the greatest number of stats.

A mage class can equip Staves, One-handed swords, Daggers, and Wands. While staves and wand skills are already learned as a beginner, you’ll have to learn how to equip Daggers and One-handed sword as you make progress in-game.

Every mage class starts off with one weapon skill learned by default.

At level 10, Classic Mages unlock the access to learn additional weapon skills from weapon trainers in capital cities, with a cost of 10 silver pieces. Not all cities have trainers for all weapon skills.

These are the locations of Weapon Masters in capital cities.

· Ilyenia Moonfire (57.6, 46.6), Warrior's Terrace, Darnassus

Weapon Skill – Daggers

· Bixi Wobblebonk (62.0, 89.6), Military Ward, Ironforge

Weapon Skill – Daggers

· Woo Ping (57.0, 57.6), Trade District, Stormwind

Weapon Skill – Dagger & One-handed swords

· Sayoc (81.6, 19.4), Valley of Honor, Orgrimmar

Weapon Skill – Daggers

· Archibald (57.8, 31.6), War Quarter, Undercity

Weapon Skill – Daggers & One-handed swords

While levelling up as a mage, you will want to look for weapons that give you the most stats. Yes, staves are generally more recommended while levelling, as you won’t be needing an off-hand weapon to fully benefit or support your weapon slots. On the other hand, Wands are extremely important for a levelling mage, because they are a source to deal constant damage without the use of any mana. Also, it is definitely a slot one should want to keep updated as much as you can.

There are quite a few notable wands you can find from vendors, outdoor quests, dungeon quests, and are listed as follows –

· Level 5:  Lesser Magic Wand crafted by Enchanters

· Level 13:  Greater Magic Wand crafted by Enchanters

· Level 15:  Firebelcher from Deviate Faerie Dragon in the dungeon Wailing Caverns

· Level 18:  Gravestone Scepter from Blackfathom Villainy / Blackfathom Villainy

· Level 26:  Lesser Mystic Wand crafted by Enchanters

· Level 30:  Nether Force Wand, Icefury Wand or Ragefire Wand from Mage's Wand

· Level 46:  Noxious Shooter from Noxxion in Maraudon

· Level 51:  Rod of Corrosion from Shade of Eranikus in The Temple of Atal'Hakkar

· Level 58:  Ritssyn's Wand of Bad Mojo from Baron Rivendare in Undead Stratholme

We do know that weapons are not as important for Classic Mages during levelling, but there are still weapons that can help you in your journey. The rewards that I’ve listed below have one common link between them and that is ‘Spell Power’ – which is by far the best stat for levelling mages.

· Level 32:  Orb of the Forgotten Seer, Off-Hand from Bloodmage Thalnos in Scarlet Monastery Graveyard

· Level 34:  Hypnotic Blade, Dagger from Arcanist Doan in Scarlet Monastery Library

· Level 35:  Celestial Stave, Staff from quest Celestial Power

· Level 35:  Celestial Orb, Off-Hand from quest Celestial Power

· Level 42:  Zum'rah's Vexing Cane, Staff from the Witch Doctor Zum'rah in Zul'Farrak

· Level 47:  Spirit of Aquementas, Off-Hand from It’s Dangerous to Go Alone

· Level 48:  Spire of Hakkar, Staff from Shade of Hakkar in The Temple of Atal'Hakkar

· Level 49:  Drakestone, Off-Hand from Several Bosses in The Temple of Atal'Hakkar

At level 60, you can purchase several powerful upgrades for your weapon.

After the release of a level 60 horde raid called ‘Ahn'Qiraj’. It is recommended that you switch to One-hand and Off-hand weapons, rather than staves. Now, before you ask why? The reason is because this zone depends heavily on what you have, so it’s better to use whatever give you more stats.

Phase 5 Mage Weapons: -

Mage Main Hand Weapons

Mage Off-Hand Weapons

Mage Ranged Weapons

It’s time that we switch to fire, so we have to say adios to Cold Snap and Wand of Biting Cold.
