1. Trinkets for Discipline Priests

The following is a draft ranking of trinkets, aimed at use in a raid environment. These rankings are formulated with all trinkets at the same item level. Due to how close in value most trinkets in each tier are, generally it is the higher item level that will decide which one is optimal.

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 either 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.

Any trinket not listed in one of the above tiers provides no increase in healing output, or significant utility, though some may increase damage dealt.

1.1. S Tier

1.2. A Tier

1.3. B Tier

1.4. C Tier

2. Best in Slot List for Discipline Priests in Uldir

Below are the recommended items from each boss in the Uldir raid accounting for balanced stats and recommended Azerite traits. This does not take into account gear from sources other than Uldir. There might be better pieces of gear available from other instances, especially with the potential for titanforging.

The trinket selections are present to give you an aim within the raid, but separate BiS trinket builds will be presented separately once more testing has been done. For now, these are the best choices within Uldir-only loot.

We have also indicated which bosses you should use your bonus roll on.
