Holy Priest Phase One Best in Slot Gear

In this section we will go over the different gear available for Holy Priests in phase one 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, however, your character is ready to take on the content of Tier 5, then please utilize our updated Phase 2 list instead.

7.

Wrist

Rank Item Gems Source
Best Bands of the Benevolent Icon Bands of the Benevolent Talon King IkissSethekk Halls (Heroic)
Best Bands of Indwelling Icon Bands of Indwelling Maiden of Virtue — Karazhan

Bands of the Benevolent Icon Bands of the Benevolent remain a great choice, being nearly identical to your raid upgrade Bands of Indwelling Icon Bands of Indwelling. Either option is good; take whichever you can get.

8.

Hands

Rank Item Gems Source
Best Gloves of Saintly Blessings Icon Gloves of Saintly Blessings 1 x Teardrop Living Ruby Icon Teardrop Living Ruby, 1 x Purified Shadow Pearl Icon Purified Shadow Pearl Attumen the Huntsman — Karazhan

Recommended Pantaloons of Repentance Icon Pantaloons of Repentance 3 x Teardrop Living Ruby Icon Teardrop Living Ruby Netherspite — Karazhan
Option Pontifex Kilt Icon Pontifex Kilt 3 x Teardrop Living Ruby Icon Teardrop Living Ruby Warlord KalithreshSteamvault (Heroic)

Gilded Trousers of Benediction Icon Gilded Trousers of Benediction are an incredible pair of leggings, but as they come from a world boss they will be extremely difficult to obtain. Pantaloons of Repentance Icon Pantaloons of Repentance are a very strong alternative and much easier to earn.

11.

Feet

Rank Item Gems Source
Best Boots of the Incorrupt Icon Boots of the Incorrupt Shade of Aran — Karazhan
Option Boots of the Pious Icon Boots of the Pious Pathaleon the Calculator — Heroic The Mechanar

Boots of the Incorrupt Icon Boots of the Incorrupt are not much better than your pre-raid best in slot options, but they are an upgrade nonetheless.

Best Naaru Lightwarden's Band Icon Naaru Lightwarden's Band Magtheridon's Lair

Trinket

Rank Item Gems Source
Best Essence of the Martyr Icon Essence of the Martyr 41 x Badge of Justice Icon Badge of Justice
Best Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Icon Darkmoon Card: Blue Dragon Darkmoon Beast Deck
Best Scarab of the Infinite Cycle Icon Scarab of the Infinite Cycle AeonusBlack Morass
Best Eye of Gruul Icon Eye of Gruul Gruul the DragonkillerGruul's Lair
Option Alchemist's Stone Icon Alchemist's Stone Alchemist's Stone IconAlchemist's StoneAlchemy

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.

Option Gladiator's Salvation Icon Gladiator's Salvation PvP Arena

16.
