Trinkets for Discipline Priests

Most Shadowlands trinkets are still being tuned and have not been tested in a raid or dungeon environment. Continue to check back for updated rankings as the tier progresses.

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.

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.


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 Spatial Realignment Apparatus Icon Spatial Realignment Apparatus from Ve'nari in the Maw, allowing you to add a socket to an item without one.
