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

As stated by Blizzard, WoW Classic will have six phases, starting with Molten Core, Onyxia's Lair, and Maraudon, and ending with Naxxramas and the Scourge Invasion.

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.
