Trinkets for Discipline Priests

  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.

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.


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!


Tier Set for Discipline Priests

The following bonuses can be found on the 9.2 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.


Creation Catalyst

By utilizing a new feature in 9.2 called Creation Catalyst, you can upgrade any Season 3 piece of gear into tier gear, including keeping its upgrade path, sockets, or tertiary.


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.


Domination Shards and Sockets

As of patch 9.2, Domination Shards and Sockets are no longer active in current content and not relevant.


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.
