Holy Priest Phase 1 Best in Slot Gear
In this guide we go over the different gear available for Holy Priests in Phase 1 of Wrath of the Lich King Classic. We will offer multiple different pieces as some can be expensive or very rare to obtain. Some slots have multiple "best" items that can change depending on your other gear choices.
Best in Slot Gear List
This is a recommended list of full best in slot gear choices. You should be changing your gear often depending on the encounter, so not everything shown below will be used on every fight. Change your gear accordingly based on the battle, what gear you have in other slots, your buffs and so on. This list is to simply show you one of the many full best in slot setups.
|Head||Crown of Luminescence|
|Neck||Sapphire Amulet of Renewal|
|Shoulder||Amice of Inconceivable Horror|
|Chest||Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification|
|Wrist||Grasps of Reason|
|Legs||Conqueror's Leggings of Sanctification|
|Feet||Boots of Fiery Resolution|
|Finger 1||Conductive Seal|
|Finger 2||Fire Orchid Signet|
|Trinket 1||Spark of Hope|
|Trinket 2||Meteorite Crystal|
|Weapon||Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings|
|Wand||Scepter of Lost Souls|
Below you can find a list of recommended pieces for each slot. Some pieces will be easier to obtain through many different methods. It is recommended to build a gear set with pieces below while working toward a full best in slot setup.
|Best||Crown of Luminescence||Mimiron — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Conqueror's Cowl of Sanctification||
|Good||Lifespark Visage||Flame Leviathan — (10) Ulduar|
Crown of Luminescence is your best helm choice as you do not need your 4-set bonus. Conqueror's Cowl of Sanctification is still a great option till you get your best option.
|Best||Sapphire Amulet of Renewal||Assembly of Iron — (25H) Ulduar|
|Best||Charm of Meticulous Timing||XT-002 Deconstructor — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Watchful Eye of Fate||Assembly of Iron — (10H) Ulduar|
|Good||Evoker's Charm||19 x Emblems of Conquest|
While Sapphire Amulet of Renewal is your actual best in slot neck as it has Spirit instead of Mp5, Charm of Meticulous Timing is just as good and will be much less contested.
|Best||Amice of Inconceivable Horror||Yogg-Saron — (10H) Ulduar|
|Great||Conqueror's Shoulderpads of Sanctification||Yogg-Saron — (25) Ulduar|
|Good||Mantle of Wavering Calm||XT-002 Deconstructor — (25) Ulduar|
As you don't need your 4-set bonus, you will want to grab Amice of Inconceivable Horror as your best in slot choice.
|Best||Sunglimmer Cloak||Heroic: All Is Well That Ends Well|
|Great||Sunglimmer Drape||All Is Well That Ends Well|
|Great||Drape of the Sullen Goddess||Freya — (25H) Ulduar|
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 from 10 man is a close secondary option.
|Best||Conqueror's Robe of Sanctification||
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.
|Best||Grasps of Reason||XT-002 Deconstructor — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Unsullied Cuffs||Sartharion — (10) The Obsidian Sanctum|
Grasps of Reason are your ideal bracers, having a large stat-line and an open socket.
|Best||Pharos Gloves||Algalon the Observer — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Conqueror's Gloves of Sanctification||
|Great||Handwraps of the Vigilant||General Vezax — (25H) Ulduar|
You have a few options for your glove slot. Pharos Gloves are your ideal choice as they have a nearly perfect stat-line for Holy Priest.
|Best||Starwatcher's Binding||Algalon the Observer — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Embrace of the Leviathan||Flame Leviathan — (25) Ulduar|
|Good||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.
|Best||Conqueror's Leggings of Sanctification||
|Great||Leggings of Lost Love||Thorim — (25) Ulduar|
You will want to get your tier legs as soon as possible for your 2-set bonus.
|Best||Boots of Fiery Resolution||Flame Leviathan — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Treads of the False Oracle||Yogg-Saron — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Spellslinger's Slippers||Spellslinger's Slippers — Tailoring|
|Good||Boots of the Servant||Freya — (25) Ulduar|
Boots of Fiery Resolution are perfect for a Holy Priest, with an abundance of everything you need. Spellslinger's Slippers are recommended in the meantime till you can get yours.
|Best||Conductive Seal||Mimiron — (25H) Ulduar|
|Best||Fire Orchid Signet||Freya — (10H) Ulduar|
|Great||Starshine Signet||All Is Well That Ends Well|
|Good||Radiant Seal||Assembly of Iron — (25) Ulduar|
|Good||Signet of Soft Lament||Yogg-Saron — (10H) Ulduar|
Phase 2 brings a large selection of rings you can choose from. Your two best rings might take awhile to get, so grab any upgrades you can in the meantime.
|Best||Meteorite Crystal||Algalon the Observer — (10) Ulduar|
|Best||Spark of Hope||Kologarn — (10) Ulduar|
|Best||Show of Faith||Yogg-Saron — (25H) Ulduar|
|Great||Scale of Fates||Thorim — (25) Ulduar|
|Good||Sif's Remembrance||Thorim — (10H) Ulduar|
Phase 2 brings many new trinkets to the table for you to choose from. Spark of Hope is by far the best trinket available for pure mana sustain, with 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.
Main Hand Weapon
|Best||Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings||Shared Drop — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Constellus||Algalon the Observer — (25) Ulduar|
|Good||Guiding Star||Razorscale — (25) Ulduar|
Obviously Val'anyr, Hammer of Ancient Kings is your best in slot weapon, but it will take awhile before you can get yours. Constellus is a great choice if you still want to wear a one-handed weapon and off-hand.
Off Hand Weapon
|Best||Ironmender||Kologarn — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Matriarch's Spawn||Maexxna or Gluth — (10) Naxxramas|
|Good||Igniter Rod||Ignis the Furnace Master — (10) Ulduar|
Ironmender is your ideal off-hand if you are using a one-handed healing weapon. Matriarch's Spawn still remains a solid choice as well till you can get yours.
Two Handed Weapon
|Best||Icecore Staff||Assembly of Iron — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Staff of Endless Winter||Hodir — (25H) Ulduar|
|Good||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 will last you a very long time.
|Best||Scepter of Lost Souls||General Vezax — (25) Ulduar|
|Great||Petrified Ivy Sprig||Freya — (10H) Ulduar|
|Good||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 remains a very solid option still.
