Holy Priest Phase Two Best in Slot Gear

In this guide we will go over the different gear available for Holy Priests in Phase Two raids. We will offer multiple different pieces as some can be rather expensive or very rare to find. It is also recommended as a Priest to avoid wearing too many pieces of gear with little-to-no Stamina, as you already have a low base health pool.

Other Holy Priest Best in Slot (BiS) Lists

If you are starting out as a freshly-leveled Holy Priest, our pre-raid best in slot list is meant to give you an idea of non-raid items you can chase as a solo / pug player in preparation for raids.

Do note that items from Heroic dungeons or that require Primal Nether Icon Primal Nethers (which are obtained from Heroics) can be harder to get than raid items due to their daily lockout. Some Heroic dungeons are also harder than most of Karazhan.

If your character is still progressing through the content of Tier 4, then you may wish to consult its best in slot list instead.

Priests have a large selection of trinkets available to them and they should be using most of the mentioned trinkets, swapping them in and out as needed. Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Icon Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon remains as your best in slot Mana regeneration trinket as Circle of Healing IconCircle of Healing makes it much easier to proc.

Finally, Alchemist's Stone Icon Alchemist's Stone offers a huge increase to Mana regen, averaging out to be 40 Mana per 5. It is worth noting that this trinket can be swapped in and out during trash to greatly increase the Mana gained from your potions.

Utilize the best trinkets for the best situation. On longer fights aim for more Mana regeneration trinkets, such as Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Icon Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon or Alchemist's Stone Icon Alchemist's Stone. Shorter fights will favor Bonus Healing trinkets if you do not run the risk of running out of Mana.
