Cataclysm Gear: Cloth
Casters in Cloth
The main and immutable statistic for spellcasters is Intellect. Like healers, dps casters benefit from Haste, Crit, Mastery, and pure Spell Power. In Cataclysm, what distinguishes caster gear from healing gear is the absence of Spirit and the presence of Hit. (Intellect-oriented gear with neither Spirit nor Hit could work for either casters or healers.)

The Twilight Terror!
- Upon completion of the quest, you must purchase this (for roughly 70-90g, depending on your reputation with the Guardians of Hyjal) from Zen'Vorka, who is next to Malfurion Stormrage, inside the cave.
- Upon completion of the quest, you must purchase this from the questgiver (and vendor).

Vicious Embersilk 
- Although technically this is a quest reward from the Darkmoon Faire, Scribes (inscriptionists) make the Embers cards that compose the Volcanic Deck, which is exchanged for the trinket.
- This is PvP gear but, even for PvE, may be an upgrade for PvE items whose level is 346 or below. (Resilience has no effect in PvE encounters, but the other stats of this 377 PvP gear may outweigh the total stats of lower-level PvE gear.)
- The robe and shoulders - the two items with Spirit in the Vicious Embersilk set - are inappropriate for dps casters.
