Holy Priest Healing Gear and Best in Slot — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1

Last updated on Dec 10, 2018 at 16:15 by Niphyr 30 comments

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Holy Priest in World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.

1. Trinkets for Holy Priests

The following is a 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.

You can view more detailed trinket rankings on the Holy Priest Spreadsheet on the Trinket Ranks tab.

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 Holy Priests in Uldir

The trinket selections are present to give you an aim within the raid, a full list of trinket rankings can be found further up on this page.
