* Note 1: Regen trinkets are great at increasing overall damage, as Mind Blast Icon Mind Blast in particular is Mana hungry. The on-use trinket from Molten Core is useful in burst situations, but should go to Mages and Warlocks in the first place.

** Note 2: As you have no competition for your The Eye of Divinity Icon The Eye of Divinity, except from other Priests, you should really stick to Anathema Icon Anathema until AQ gear gets available to you. Furthermore, Anathema Icon Anathema is simply better than the available non-rank 14 alternatives.


Other Best in Slot Lists

As this list is meant to be used for Shadow 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.
