Scopes and Runes Enchants

Scopes and Weapon Runes: Hunters and Death Knights are unique in that they use weapon enhancements that are different from all other classes!

Hunter Enchants: Hunter’s should look in the Auction House for Lord Blastington’s Scope of Doom.

Death Knight Enchants: Death Knights should prioritize using their Death Gate to return to Acherus to use the Runeforging and apply Rune of the Fallen Crusader to their weapons.

Once you get to level 50 and enter the Shadowlands do keep in mind that enchants are not as impactful as they were 1-50. They offer only minor upgrades due to the huge scaling of enemy health and damage. You will notice this from level 50 to 51 your health will change by 3000 to 6000 health points which is absolutely huge. Your heirlooms item levels will also go up by 50 item levels from level 50-51. Shadowlands has weird scaling however, if you are looking for some enchants to use in the 50-60 leveling bracket, check out the enchants below!

Shadowlands Enchants for Leveling 50-60

  1. Weapons- Celestial Guidance is a good and all around cheap option for weapons. 
  2. Cloak- Fortified Speed is a great option to use while leveling. While a small bonus, any speed boost is a good speed boost!
  3. Chest- Sacred Stats is a good cheap option, but if you are looking for a bigger boost use Eternal Stats!
  4. Then there are 3 special enchants you should use based on your primary stat!
  5. Intellect- Illuminated Soul or Eternal Intellect. These enchants are only available on Bracers.
  6. Strength- Strength of Soul or Eternal Strength. These enchants are only available on Gloves.
  7. Agility- Agile Soulwalker and Eternal Agility. These enchants are only available on boots.
  8. Rings- SO MANY OPTIONS!! There is an enchantment for every secondary stat, simply search the Auction House for “Bargain of (secondary stat)” or “Tenet of (secondary stat)” to find what you need for your class! 

These are all of the WoW enchants you HAVE to have while leveling a new character in World of Warcraft. All of them can be bought on the AH or made by another player with Enchanting as a profession! Happy Leveling, and hopefully these enchants make your experience Fast, Fun, and Easy!
