I'm sorry, it's just the first time I hear "moonkin" and "raid" in the same sentence.

Now for real - Every mage gear should be suited for you.

Not sure if trolling, but the following link should help you out considering your BiS gear:

This

Further in you find BiS pre for warlock which is almost exactly the same for any caster class except for a few differences, in your case replace: D2 gloves/sageblade

But given the fact that you can't get spell hit from talents you need a boatload of +hit and there are no leather items with spell hit in pre-raid content as far as I know.

Could make you a bis pre raid list, might not be 100% accurate but should be 99% accurate at least.

Head: Spellweaver's Turban http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22267
Neck: Diana's Pearl Necklace http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22403
Shoulders: Burial Shawl http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=18681

Chest: Bloodvine Vest http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19682
Bracers: Rockfury Bracers http://db.valkyrie-w...21186#reward-of

Legs: Bloodvine Leggings http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19683

Ring: Rune Band of Wizardry http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22339
Ring: Don Mauricio's Band of Domination http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22433
Trinket: Eye of the Beast http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=13968
Trinket: Briarwood Reed http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=12930
Mainhand: The Lost Kris of Zeddhttp://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=21802
Offhand: Scepter of Interminable Focus http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22329
Staff: Lord Valthalak's Staff of Command http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22335

Note: You should scan the AH for the lost kris of zedd all the time, and get the staff while doing so if you like. You should also vote for the Gloves before Cloak, also after that start voting for the ZG ring caster set. So don't farm the rings like a mad man either. But I guess you will need to run like 30 UBRS for the head. Also GET TAILORING. Full bloodvine with the set bonus is incredible for moonkin.

Basic stat prioritation is: Hit > Crit > Spelldmg > Int > mp5 > Spi
VS certain bosses you should squeeze in some spell penetration if possible as well, but I can't think of a single good item for a moonkin with that. Crit is really good for Nature's grace obviously and druids scale better crit wise than mages and warlocks with intellect, 50 intellect is 1% crit for a druid.

Hit is the most important stat untill you reach the cap obviously, which you probably never will without Neltharion's tear and items like that.

Rotation is pretty simple, in 5-10mans you could probably spam wrath if the mana allows you to and keep moonfire up, which is the highest DPS rotation you got but it ooms you quick. In 20-40man the bosses got higher resistance and there are no curse of nature, but arcane is included in CoS.

With that being said it is pretty obvious that starfire is the way to go in Raids. I don't think there are a debuff limit atm, so feel free to throw in a moonfire from time to time of the mana allows you to (Which it should, even without innervate).

Moonkins ooming fast is just false if you ask me. Starfire mana cost is 309 as boomkin spec if I am not misstaken. And compare to some other spells:
Starfire 3sec cast: 309mana
Mind blast 1.5s: 350mana. 2x Mind blasts 700mana 3s cast.
Frostbolt R11 2.5s with frost spec: 246mana. Fb R11 for 3sec: 295.2mana cost

As you can see you can see starfire mana cost is low. Even though you might end up having like 15% 2.5 Casts starfire mana shouldn't be a problem.

Just a lot of guys playing moonkin half assed, running around with D2 and shit and raiding without consumeables. If you get that pre raid list I linked, use all consomeables I can guarantee you that you will do almost as good dps as most frost mages in MC guilds if not better (considering most mages are retards).

Consumeables: Elixir of the Sages, Mageblood, Greater intellect, supreme power, wizard oil and sagefish delight, Crystal Force. And scrolls if possible.


Posted this in another thread, bis pre raid and some other usefull info.



Head: Mish'undare, Circlet of the Mind Flayer http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19375
Neck: Malice Stone Pendant http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22943
Shoulders: Rime Covered Mantle http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22983
Back: Cloak of the Necropolis http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=23050
Chest: Bloodvine Vest http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19682
Bracers: Bracers of Arcane Accuracy http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19374
Hands: Dark Storm Gauntletshttp://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=21585
Waist:Angelista's Grasp http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19388
Legs: Bloodvine Leggings http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19683
Boots: Bloodvine Boots http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19684
Ring: Zanzil's Band http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19905
Ring: Zanzil's Seal http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19893
Trinket: The Restrained Essence of Sapphiron http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=23046
Trinket: Neltharion's Tearhttp://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=19379
Staff: Brimstone Staff http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=22800

This is what I think is BiS in the end, so make sure you get 300 tailoring for bloodvine set bonus. The items you really should try to get when you start raiding is a cloak with +hit, a weapon with 2% hit (Regalia or brimstone) and neltharion's tear. The rest of the items is obtainable through voting or a pretty small upgrade.

Blade of Eternal Darkness http://db.valkyrie-wow.com/?item=17780

much better than Zedd imo and I believe it can be farmed solo with some skill and feral gear.

P.S. But this dagger really shines in hands of a mage. Especially when he starts to AOE.
