General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Discipline Priests in World of Warcraft WoD 6.0.3, 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.

6.0.2 Transition Guide

If you want to read all about the Patch 6.0.2 changes and learn how they affect your character, make sure to read our Priest Transition Guide!

1. Basics↑top

We currently propose the following statistic priority for Discipline Priests.

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

These statistics have been obtained by combining common sense, in-game testing, and simulations using Simulation Craft.

If you are unsure how to conform your gear to the above priority, you can Ask Mr. Robot for a personalised optimisation of your character's gear, by filling the form below.

2. Getting a Better Understanding↑top

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.

Spirit increases your Mana regeneration. You should always aim to have items with Spirit. Once you are comfortable with your Mana regeneration, you can start prioritising other statistics. Spirit is only available for healers on Amulets, Cloaks, Rings, and Trinkets.

Critical Strike is vital for generating Divine Aegis Icon Divine Aegis and making the most of your Mastery.

Mastery (Mastery: Shield Discipline Icon Mastery: Shield Discipline) increases the potency of your damage absorption effects, as well as increasing your healing done.

Haste reduces the cast time of your spells, and also reduces your global cooldown.
