Classic Priest Healer Gear and Best in Slot
On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Priest Healer in WoW Classic.
Gearing Strategy for Healing Priests
To allow for easier gearing up both before and after your enter raids, the gear talked about below will often suggest alternate viable items for the same slot, to help provide significant power in a particular slot even if it is not the absolute best item.
If you are looking to gear up your Priest for healing in PvP, you can check out our PvP BiS Guide below.
WoW Classic Phases
This guide currently aims to focus on Phase 4 which introduces the 20-man raid Zul'Gurub containing catch-up gear for people looking to raid in Blackwing Lair and beyond. Many of these catchup items have been included below as an alternative to some of the Best in Slot gear.
