Table of Contents

General Information

On this page, we explain what the best statistics are for Holy Priests in World of Warcraft Legion 7.1, 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 Holy Priest guide can be accessed from the table of contents on the right.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Zolvolt, officer and long-time healing Priest of Exiled Legion, whom you can follow on Twitter.

1. Basics

We recommend this stat priority for Holy Priests.

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

2. Getting a Better Understanding

2.1. Statistics Explanations

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.

Mastery (Mastery: Echo of Light Icon Mastery: Echo of Light) causes each one of your direct heals to place a HoT on the target, healing for a percentage of the initial heal over 6 seconds. Successive applications of this HoT stack.

Critical Strike doubles the effects of your heals, which also benefits your Mastery.

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

Haste lowers the cast time of your heals, as well as your global cooldown. It also reduces the cooldown of Circle of Healing Icon Circle of Healing and Holy Word: Sanctify Icon Holy Word: Sanctify, as well as increasing the healing of Renew Icon Renew (by granting additional ticks).
