Trinkets for Discipline Priests

The ranking system is as follows:

  1. S Tier: the strongest and most generally useful trinkets; these are always good choices.
  2. A Tier: these trinkets are slightly weaker than the S Tier traits, but are still solid choices.
  3. B Tier: a below-average trinket that should be picked only in the absence of an S or A Tier trinket.
  4. C Tier: a weak trinket that provides very little healing output or other utility and should be avoided if possible.

Scrawled Word of Recall

This trinket is conditionally good based on a variety of factors such as utilzing the The Penitent One Icon The Penitent One legendary and having the 4 piece tier set bonus active. Take a look at our raid guide linked below for when this trinket can be used.

2.

Legendary Gear

Discipline Priest has a few different Legendary powers that are likely to be used based on the content you are attempting to complete. Check out our legendary page for more in depth discussion on our legendary choices.

For a more detailed dive into the Legendary Crafting system, take a look at our Runecarving guide!

3.

Tier Set for Discipline Priests

The following bonuses can be found on the Season 4 Tier Set for Discipline Priest:

The two piece tier set bonus causes no rotational gameplay changes. The four piece bonus, however, will result in a variety of rotational changes. Please refer to the rotation page of the guide on how best to utilize this bonus.

When attempting to aquire the various pieces of tier, priotize getting any piece you can to activate the set bonuses. Eventually, due to a pair of higher item level gloves that are available from The Jailer in the Sepulcher of the First Ones, we recommend aquiring the Helm, Shoulders, Chest, and Pants as your four pieces of tier.

3.1.

Creation Catalyst

By utilizing the Creation Catalyst, you can upgrade any Season 4 piece of gear into tier gear, including keeping its upgrade path, sockets, or tertiary. Tier gear will also continue to drop out of Sepulcher of the First Ones during Season 4.

4.

Unique Items

Anduin Wrynn in Sepulcher of the First Ones drops a unqiue ring specifically for priests called Soulwarped Seal of Wrynn Icon Soulwarped Seal of Wrynn. The uptime on buff from this ring is extremely high and it is recommended you get your hands on one of these rings and use it whenever possible.

Drape of Shame Icon Drape of Shame is a unique drop from the Maiden of Virtue in Lower Karazhan that grants a 5% increase to your critical healing effects. Due to this effect not being taken out of the item's overall stat budget but just being an additional effect on top of the usual stats, it is recommended to wear this item if you have it.

5.

Puzzling Cartel Dinar Vendor

During season 4, you will gain access to a vendor that sells all the weapons, trinkets, and unique items from all 3 raids combined. Over the course of the season, you will be able to purchase 3 items total off said vendor using the Puzzling Cartel Dinar Icon Puzzling Cartel Dinar currency. It is currently recommended to purchase Soulwarped Seal of Wrynn Icon Soulwarped Seal of Wrynn, the unique ring from Anduin Wrynn, as well as a Cabalist's Hymnal Icon Cabalist's Hymnal, the trinket off of Sire Denathrius. Your third purchase will likely depend on what drops you get while playing, but any of the other available highly rated trinkets above or the highest item level weapon are both valid options.

6.

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.

7.

Domination Shards and Sockets

For Season 4, Domination Shards and Sockets are no longer active in current content and not relevant.

7.1.

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.
