Burning Crusade Classic: Rogue PvP BIS and Pre-BIS Gear

Burning Crusade Classic Rogue PvP BIS

The Burning Crusade introduces the arena to World of Warcraft Classic players, and with it comes some very competitive player versus player action. As always, the rogue class is a popular choice and one of the most formidable competitors in the arena. If you a rogue that wants to make sure you’re not losing any competitive edge, you’ll likely want to aim for the best in slot gear. We’ll give you the optimal Burning Crusade Classic Rogue PvP BIS and pre-BIS gear setup in this guide.

It goes without saying that the optimal setup is not easily obtainable by the average person. Lots of time and practice must go into the game to get the heroic badges and honor and arena points necessary to acquire the gear. So, feel free to work towards the pre-BIS setup first, and then fill in the pieces where you can.
