Trinkets for Discipline Priests
The ranking system is as follows:
- S Tier: the strongest and most generally useful trinkets; these are always good choices.
- A Tier: these trinkets are slightly weaker than the S Tier traits, but are still solid choices.
- B Tier: a below-average trinket that should be picked only in the absence of an S or A Tier trinket.
- C Tier: a weak trinket that provides very little healing output or other utility and should be avoided if possible.

Best in Slot List for Discipline Priests
Due to Leech and our overall closely-ranked secondary stats, your choice as to what piece would be best in slot is very much case by case. There are no set recommendations for overall items to aim for in the new raid tier as a result. Outside of Leech and Sockets, your goal should be to target the highest item level gear available and following the stat priority presented on equal item level gear.
A current patch exception to the above is to ensure you have five pieces of gear that contain Domination Sockets. As a Cloth wearer, Domination Sockets are available in the following slots:
Domination Shards and Sockets
The following five Shards are the recommended Domination Shards to slot into your Domination Sockets:
- Shard of Zed (Unholy set)
- Shard of Dyz (Unholy set)
- Shard of Oth (Unholy set)
- Shard of Rev (Blood set)
- Shard of Kyr (Frost set)
Utilizing the above Shards will grant you the Chaos Bane set bonus as well as using the two remaining shards providing the highest healing-per-second. Note that the Unholy set Shards listed above are very poor on their own without the set bonus. It is recommended to slot Shard of Rev and Shard of Kyr over the first three if you only have 2 sockets available.
If you would like to know more about the remaining Domination Shards' effects, their set bonuses, or how to upgrade their effects into even more potent forms, please see our official guide detailing everything about this new system of Patch 9.1:
Other Sockets in Shadowlands
In Shadowlands, only your Helm, Rings, Necks, Bracers, and Belts can have a socket on them. When a piece of gear in that slot drops, there is a chance for it to already have a socket in it. If you are not lucky enough to have your gear drop with a socket already, you can purchase a Alloy-Warping Facetor in the Maw, allowing you to add a socket to an item without one.
