Priest Healer Season of Mastery Phase 5 Gear
On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Tier 2.5 / AQ40 for your Priest Healer in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid gearing advice, please refer to our Priest Healer Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide.
Holy and Discipline Priest Season of Mastery Best in Slot (BiS) List for Ahn'Qiraj
Below, you will find the best-in-slot items for Priest healers in AQ40, Blackwing Lair, Zul'Gurub, Molten Core, and Onyxia, along with pre-raid items where applicable. Please note that this list avoids using caster DPS items, as content in SoM moves faster and makes gearing casters much harder if healers get DPS items as well.
Tier 2 Set: The Tier 2 set offers a very good mix between stats, great set bonuses and healing power. Some of the off-pieces are strictly better, however, the set should be used as it is very easy to come by and because of it's sheer strength.
* Note 1: Choker of the Fire Lord provides 1 more healing than Animated Chain Necklace. Do not take it from your caster DPS, it is BIS forever or very close to BIS forever for them for all of Classic. The same goes for Mana Igniting Cord; do not take it if a caster still needs it. Druids, Shamans, and Paladins are grateful if you pass Aurastone Hammer to them, as they, unlike you, do not have a free superior Benediction-like healing staff.
** Note 2: Hide of the Wild is the best cloak obtainable at the moment, however if you are unable to afford the materials or a crafted cloak, Shroud of Pure Thought is a less powerful alternative.
*** Note 3: If you do not have Tailoring then Robes of the Exalted from Baron Rivendare in Stratholme undead is a good replacement.
Other Best in Slot Lists
As this list is meant to be used for Healer Priests in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery, we have created separate gear lists for those interested in optimizing themselves for the "main" branch of Classic instead. If you are not playing in the Season of Mastery, it is recommended that you consult this gear hub instead. In case you still need them, we have also included links to other phases of our Season of Mastery gear lists.
In addition, because Blackwing Lair, Molten Core, and Onyxia's Lair may require the use of additional Fire Resistance, we have a separate guide below to optimize your gear for this stat if necessary.
