Wizard101 Best Level 130 Fire Gear

 

Last updated 10/18/2019 (Added Creepier Carnival Bundle Boots)

 

What’s the best gear for a max level Fire Wizard (currently level 130)?  We’ve seen this question many times, so we’ve provided our recommendations below, in a format to help you compare options.

We’ll take a moment to review our criteria first, since the “best” gear depends on your role and objectives.

  1. Our Criteria
  2. Recommendations by Gear Type
    1. Hats
    2. Robes
    3. Boots
    4. Wands
    5. Athames
    6. Amulets
    7. Rings
    8. Decks
    9. Mounts
  3. Sample Builds

Looking for the best gear for other schools?  Check out our guides for the best max gear for Balance, Death, Ice, Life, Myth and Storm.

Our Criteria

We consider the gear listed below the best for a max level Fire Wizard if you are:

  • Questing by yourself (solo)
  • Questing in a group & playing the role of a hitter, or
  • Playing PvP in an offensive or traditional role

If you are questing in a group and playing a support role (i.e., buffing the wizard that is going to hit and/or healing) or if you are playing a very defensive PvP strategy, we assume you are more interested in global resist and outgoing healing.  We suggest that you check out Cody’s guide on gear with the best outgoing healing, as it includes several high-resist gear options as well.

There are three types of recommendations, depending on your focus:

1. Damage Focus

Typically used against opponents with high block, such as bosses.

  • Primary objective is to maximize damage
  • Secondary objectives are power pips, accuracy and pierce

2. Critical Focus

Typically used against opponents with low block, such as mobs.  Some PvP builds focus on high critical as well.

  • Primary objective is critical
  • Secondary objectives are damage, power pips and accuracy

3. Balanced

Typically used in PvP or against bosses that hit hard (e.g., Storm Titan anyone?):

  • Primary objective is to provide decent damage and several helpful stats, including universal resist, power pips, accuracy, pierce and important jewel sockets
  • Many balanced items contain some critical, although it’s typically not a “critical” objective (pun intended)

  • How about the Catacombs gear?

    • Hi there, we will be updating these guides as soon as possible. thanks for your patience!

  • Actually, 165 is possible with the new dragoons hat and boots with pain giver talent and the new dragoon’s fiery ring. with this setup you’ll get 8% more damage and still have 100% critical.

  • with the new Dragoon’s boots and hat for the 100% critical and high damage build. You can technically get 163 damage and max critical if you replace one of the critical pet talents for pain giver and also get the new dragoon’s hat and boots. With that you will get 33 critical rating from the hat and boots and 6% more damage from the pet talent. So whatever critical you lose from not having the pet talent is made up by the gear and in turn you get 6% more damage totaling to 163 dmg and 100% critical.

  • PLS DO A MYTH ONE PLS 😀 Great website hleps a lot

    • I believe a myth one is in the works!

      • For the 100% Critical build for Myth please use Witch Hunters Arbelest

        • Just created the Myth one this weekend. Should be published soon. I couldn’t find a way to reach 100% critical with the Witch Hunter’s Arbelest for the sample build. If you’re able to make something work, let us know in the comments for it and we’ll update!

  • Could you make a max critical set both not crafted and crafted pls.

    • Would suggest checking out the options in each section but can provide a few commments here.

      Think the only useful crafted option for a high critical build is the Khrysalis Hat, although I prefer the Paradox Hat for the extra damage and Pips.

      Most recommendations for a build focusing on higher critical would include dropped items: Paradox Hat, Tenni’syn Robe, Paradox Boots, Yevgeny/Morganthe Athame with 2 critical jewels, Shane amulet, Paradox Ring, Paradox Deck and Quad Critical / Double Damage Pet.

      For the wand, the best non-crowns option for highest critical would be the Hades Wand from Tartarus. Or if you’re willing to spend crowns on packs there are a lot of options with critical and damage (e.g., the new Sinbad Hoard Pack one is good).

  • 100% Critical and Max Damage level 130 Fire

    Hat = Fiery Paradox Conical (144 Fire Critical; 30% Fire Damage)

    Robe = Radiant Light Brigade Armor (110 Fire Critical; 23% Fire Damage)

    Boots = Fiery Paradox Boots (120 Fire Critical; 36% Fire Damage)

    Wand = Jack Hallow’s Blues (209 Fire Critical)

    Athame = Edge of the Shadow Web with 2 Sparkling Fire Critical Jewels (36 Fire Critical; 17% Fire Damage)

    Amulet = Talisman of the Daystar (35 Universal Critical)

    Ring = Mithraya’s Blazing Loop with 1 Sparkling Fire Critical Jewel (87 + 18 Fire Critical; 11% Fire Damage)

    Deck = Fiery Paradox Deck (58 Fire Critical)

    Mount = Fire Ghulture (3% Fire Damage)

    Pet [max stat]:
    Fire-boon / Pain-bringer = 3% Damage
    Fire-giver = 6% Fire Damage
    Pain-giver = 6% Damage
    Fire-dealer = 10%
    Fire Assailant = 32 Fire Crit

    + Mighty Opal [gain 4% more damage — since other pet damage talents will raise by 1%]

    Total = 849 Critical and 149% Damage

    • Thank you! Appreciate the input, as it helps us ensure we’re giving accurate info to everyone. When doing the update today, realized that you can get even more damage using the new Sinbad Hoard Pack wand! Updated the sample build.

  • Under the sample build, 100% Critical and Max damage — the Fiery Paradox Boots should only have 120 critical and not 132 critical. But still it reaches 100% crit anyway

    • Fixed, thank you. Looks like I had the critical for the deck wrong in the sample build too. 🙂

  • What is the pet they are talking about in the sample builds?
    Please let me know ASAP. Thanks

    • It can be any pet as long as it has max stats combined with the mentioned talents.

  • Switch out three of the four critical talents and swap them with damage. Use a +65 strength jewel to give yourself 5% more damage. Switch out the wand for Jack Hallow’s Blues. If you keep Fire Assailant, you’re left with 852 critical, which is 14 points above max critical chance. You do lose some pierce but as the set is meant for damage and critical, I thought I’d share.

    • You can ALSO swap out the Paradox ring for the Mithraya ring and lose 9 critical but gain 1% damage. You’ll then sit at 843 critical, which is still 5 points above the max.

      • Thanks for the info David, appreciate it! While doing the updates today, realized you can get even higher with the new Sinbad Hoard Pack wand. Updated the sample build.

    • Fire-boon / Pain-bringer
      Pain-giver
      Fire-giver
      Fire-dealer
      Fire assailant

      + Mighty Opal (+4% more damage)

      right?

    • Your suggestion is better 🙂 Thanks for this!

      It has 100% critical and 149% damage overall

  • The Robes have pictures of the Stats but show the storm robes below

    • I used the Storm article as a starting point for the layout. Looks like I forgot to update a few of the descriptions. Thanks for the catch. Updated now.

  • Is there a myth one?

    • Still in the works. Check back at a later stage 🙂

  • Can you make a death one next please???

    • It is in the works 🙂

  • This was so helpful!! Can you please do a life one? i almost at max. You guys have helped me so much

    • Glad to hear that Philip 😀
      I’ll poke Timid and Patrick for the life guide hehe

      • Thank you!! And keep up the good work!
