  • 58 x Emblems of Conquest
Good Lifespark Visage Icon Lifespark Visage Flame Leviathan — (10) Ulduar

Crown of Luminescence Icon Crown of Luminescence is your best helm choice as you do not need your 4-set bonus. Conqueror's Cowl of Sanctification Icon Conqueror's Cowl of Sanctification is still a great option till you get your best option.

Great Watchful Eye of Fate Icon Watchful Eye of Fate Assembly of Iron — (10H) Ulduar
Good Evoker's Charm Icon Evoker's Charm 19 x Emblems of Conquest

While Sapphire Amulet of Renewal Icon Sapphire Amulet of Renewal is your actual best in slot neck as it has Spirit instead of Mp5, Charm of Meticulous Timing Icon Charm of Meticulous Timing is just as good and will be much less contested.

Best Sunglimmer Cloak Icon Sunglimmer Cloak Heroic: All Is Well That Ends Well
Great Sunglimmer Drape Icon Sunglimmer Drape All Is Well That Ends Well
Great Drape of the Sullen Goddess Icon Drape of the Sullen Goddess Freya — (25H) Ulduar

Sunglimmer Cloak Icon Sunglimmer Cloak is your best cloak, but as it is from the Heroic: All Is Well That Ends Well quest it is unlikely you will be able to get it for a while till most of the DPS players have it. Sunglimmer Drape Icon Sunglimmer Drape from 10 man is a close secondary option.

7.

Chest

Best Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification Icon Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification
  • Hodir — (25) Ulduar

Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification Icon Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification is the only listed chest as it can be easily obtained and is needed to complete your 4-set bonus.

Wrist

Rank Item Source
Best Grasps of Reason Icon Grasps of Reason XT-002 Deconstructor — (25H) Ulduar
Great Unsullied Cuffs Icon Unsullied Cuffs Sartharion — (10) The Obsidian Sanctum

Grasps of Reason Icon Grasps of Reason are your ideal bracers, having a large stat-line and an open socket.

Great Conqueror's Gloves of Sanctification Icon Conqueror's Gloves of Sanctification
Great Handwraps of the Vigilant Icon Handwraps of the Vigilant General Vezax — (25H) Ulduar

You have a few options for your glove slot. Pharos Gloves Icon Pharos Gloves are your ideal choice as they have a nearly perfect stat-line for Holy Priest.

10.

Waist

Best Starwatcher's Binding Icon Starwatcher's Binding Algalon the Observer — (25) Ulduar
Great Embrace of the Leviathan Icon Embrace of the Leviathan Flame Leviathan — (25) Ulduar
Good Leash of Heedless Magic Icon Leash of Heedless Magic Malygos — (10) The Eye of Eternity

It may take awhile before you can get your best belt as it will be highly contested. You have a couple of great options in the meantime till you get yours.

11.

Legs

Rank Item Source
Best Conqueror's Leggings of Sanctification Icon Conqueror's Leggings of Sanctification
Great Leggings of Lost Love Icon Leggings of Lost Love Thorim — (25) Ulduar

12.

Feet

Best Boots of Fiery Resolution Icon Boots of Fiery Resolution Flame Leviathan — (25H) Ulduar
Great Treads of the False Oracle Icon Treads of the False Oracle Yogg-Saron — (25H) Ulduar
Great Spellslinger's Slippers Icon Spellslinger's Slippers Spellslinger's Slippers IconSpellslinger's SlippersTailoring

Boots of Fiery Resolution Icon Boots of Fiery Resolution are perfect for a Holy Priest, with an abundance of everything you need. Spellslinger's Slippers Icon Spellslinger's Slippers are recommended in the meantime till you can get yours.

14.

Trinket

Rank Item Source
Best Meteorite Crystal Icon Meteorite Crystal Algalon the Observer — (10) Ulduar
Best Spark of Hope Icon Spark of Hope Kologarn — (10) Ulduar
Best Show of Faith Icon Show of Faith Yogg-Saron — (25H) Ulduar
Great Scale of Fates Icon Scale of Fates Thorim — (25) Ulduar
Good Sif's Remembrance Icon Sif's Remembrance Thorim — (10H) Ulduar

Phase 2 brings many new trinkets to the table for you to choose from. Spark of Hope Icon Spark of Hope is by far the best trinket available for pure mana sustain, with Meteorite Crystal Icon Meteorite Crystal being the second ideal mana regeneration trinket. On shorter fights where mana is not a concern, you will want to wear the high Spell Power or Haste options.

15.

Main Hand Weapon

Rank Item Source
Best Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings Icon Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings Shared Drop — (25) Ulduar
Great Constellus Icon Constellus Algalon the Observer — (25) Ulduar
Good Guiding Star Icon Guiding Star Razorscale — (25) Ulduar

Obviously Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings Icon Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings is your best in slot weapon, but it will take awhile before you can get yours. Constellus Icon Constellus is a great choice if you still want to wear a one-handed weapon and off-hand.

16.

Off Hand Weapon

Rank Item Source
Best Ironmender Icon Ironmender Kologarn — (25) Ulduar
Great Matriarch's Spawn Icon Matriarch's Spawn Maexxna or Gluth — (10) Naxxramas
Good Igniter Rod Icon Igniter Rod Ignis the Furnace Master — (10) Ulduar

Ironmender Icon Ironmender is your ideal off-hand if you are using a one-handed healing weapon. Matriarch's Spawn Icon Matriarch's Spawn still remains a solid choice as well till you can get yours.

17.

Two Handed Weapon

Rank Item Source
Best Icecore Staff Icon Icecore Staff Assembly of Iron — (25) Ulduar
Great Staff of Endless Winter Icon Staff of Endless Winter Hodir — (25H) Ulduar
Good The Lifebinder Icon The Lifebinder Freya — (25) Ulduar

Staves are a good option if you can not get your best main-hand and off-hand combo. Picking up a Icecore Staff Icon Icecore Staff will last you a very long time.

18.

Wand

Rank Item Source
Best Scepter of Lost Souls Icon Scepter of Lost Souls General Vezax — (25) Ulduar
Great Petrified Ivy Sprig Icon Petrified Ivy Sprig Freya — (10H) Ulduar
Good Wand of the Archlich Icon Wand of the Archlich Heroics

Wands are a bit awkward this phase for healers as they are mostly made for DPS. Grab whichever you can get your hands on; if you can not get any new wands, Wand of the Archlich Icon Wand of the Archlich remains a very solid option still.
