Holy Priest Phase 5 / Sunwell Plateau Best in Slot Gear

In this guide we will go over the different gear available for Holy Priests in Phase Five raids. We will offer multiple different pieces as some can be rather expensive or very rare to find.

Other Holy Priest Best in Slot 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. If your character is still progressing through the content of older tiers, then you may wish to consult their best in slot lists instead.

2 x Quick Lionseye Icon Quick Lionseye
KalecgosSunwell Plateau

Pantaloons of Growing Strife Icon Pantaloons of Growing Strife are our best in slot pants option, despite them being the "DPS" version of the legs. The Haste more than make up for the loss of bonus healing.

11.

Best Boots of Absolution Icon Boots of Absolution 1 x Quick Lionseye Icon Quick Lionseye FelmystSunwell Plateau
Option Slippers of Dutiful Mending Icon Slippers of Dutiful Mending 1 x Quick Lionseye Icon Quick Lionseye 75 x Badge of Justice Icon Badge of Justice

Blessed Band of Karabor Icon Blessed Band of Karabor remains our other best in slot ring. Band of Lucent Beams Icon Band of Lucent Beams is a decent alternative if you are missing the Black Temple trash ring. Finally, Ring of Harmonic Beauty Icon Ring of Harmonic Beauty is the new trash ring drop in Sunwell Plateau. Use these for spirit options if you need additional regeneration.

Trinket

Rank Item Source
Best Shifting Naaru Sliver Icon Shifting Naaru Sliver M'uruSunwell Plateau
Best Redeemer's Alchemist Stone Icon Redeemer's Alchemist Stone Redeemer's Alchemist Stone IconRedeemer's Alchemist StoneAlchemy
Best Memento of Tyrande Icon Memento of Tyrande Illidan StormrageBlack Temple
Best Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Icon Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Darkmoon Beast Deck

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.

Phase 5 offers an upgraded version of the Alchemy-specific trinket, Redeemer's Alchemist Stone Icon Redeemer's Alchemist Stone. This trinket is amazing for the additional Mana from Super Mana Potion Icon Super Mana Potions. Grab this trinket if you are an Alchemist. Memento of Tyrande Icon Memento of Tyrande remains a very solid option if you are not.

The new trinket from Sunwell, Glimmering Naaru Sliver Icon Glimmering Naaru Sliver is nice, but the on-use requires a long channel to gain the Mana, making you unable to heal during the cast. Most fights in the raid do not have down time where you can use this trinket, making it a worse option over Memento of Tyrande Icon Memento of Tyrande most of the time.

Finally, Shifting Naaru Sliver Icon Shifting Naaru Sliver is the other new trinket available in Phase 5. While this is a caster trinket, the stats are desirable by most healers as well, making this your actual best in slot trinket. But seeing as this will be wanted by all caster DPS, you will have a hard time obtaining it.

Option Archon's Gavel Icon Archon's Gavel 1 x Quick Lionseye Icon Quick Lionseye Eredar TwinsSunwell Plateau

Golden Staff of the Sin'dorei Icon Golden Staff of the Sin'dorei is our best in slot option, offering a massive boost to all of our main healing stats. We prefer a two-handed weapon in this phase over the normal one hand and off hand combo.

15.

Off Hand Weapon

Rank Item Source
Best Book of Highborne Hymns Icon Book of Highborne Hymns Eredar TwinsSunwell Plateau

Book of Highborne Hymns Icon Book of Highborne Hymns is your go-to option if you are using a one-handed weapon instead of a staff.
