Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Discipline Priests in World of Warcraft Legion 7.0.3, how the class benefits from each of them.

The statistics priority is important as it influences itemisation choices (gear, enchants, and gems).

The other pages of our Discipline Priest guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Beerek, one of the best healing Priests in the world, who raids in Serenity.

1. Basics

We currently propose the following statistic priority for Discipline Priests.

  1. Intellect;
  2. Haste;
  3. Critical Strike;
  4. Versatility;
  5. Mastery.

2. Getting a Better Understanding

Intellect is your primary stat. You should look for this stat in all of your upgrades. It provides you with Spell Power, which increases the power of your heals.

Haste reduces the cast time of your spells, reduces the cooldown of Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield, and also reduces your global cooldown. Moreover, it increases the amount of attacks your Mindbender Icon Mindbender can make, and the number of ticks from Shadow Word: Pain Icon Shadow Word: Pain/Purge the Wicked Icon Purge the Wicked.

Critical Strike grants your damaging spells and heals a chance to double their value. That said, it is worth noting that it does not double-dip with regards to Atonement Icon Atonement healing (Atonement heals cannot be critical hits; they only heal for the amount of damage that was done, which is the only portion that can be a critical strike).

Mastery (Mastery: Absolution Icon Mastery: Absolution) increases your Atonement healing, but it has no effect on your normal healing and on your absorbs.

Versatility increases all your damage and healing done, and decreases all damage taken.
