Simple Cloth DPS Caster Gear Guide (Shadowlands)

Here we outline some simple instructions on how to progressive gear your character. This is not a best in slot list, this is a guide to help you progressively get gear outside of raids that can still be competitive.

Make sure you prioritize the stats as listed in your Class Guide stat priority list!

Covenant Cloth Armor

Covenant armor in Shadowlands is an excellent way to start gearing up your character. Fully upgraded these pieces are ilevel 197. There are pieces for 9 armor slots: Head, Shoulders, Back, Chest, Wrist, Hands, Waist, Legs, Feet.

To acquire covenant armor simply proceed with your Covenant Campaign and you will incrementally get pieces as you progress.

You can upgrade your covenant armor in your Covenant Sanctum, for a full guide on the process you can view the full How to Upgrade Covenant Armor guide on Warcraft Tavern. Note that upgrading all the covenant armor requires a significant amount of Anima.

Crafted Cloth Armor

For gear prior to your Covenant Armor we recommend using the Shadowlace tailoring gear to get started. If you are not a tailor you can also purchase it on the auction house. These items are ilevel 151 by default, although they can also be found at ilevel 168 thanks to crafter's mark Crafter’s Mark II, which is purchasable from Ve’nari in The Maw using stygia Stygia.

World Quests, Mission Table, Tribute Rewards

Various items can be acquired through World Quests in Ardenweald, Bastion, Maldraxxus, and Revendreth at varying ilevels (based upon your current ilevel and Covenant Renown). Additionally a lot of the same items, as well as different ones, can be acquired through the Mission Table or from Tribute Rewards from Covenant Callings such as tribute of the paragon Tribute of the Paragon.

It’s worth noting that item rewards from World Quests scale with your item level with a cap as to how high it can go based upon your Covenant Renown level, so as you continue to improve your gear and increase your renown it’s still beneficial to watch World Quests for rewards that may be better than what you currently have equipped even if it’s the same item.
