Legendaries for Holy Priest

Holy Priest does not have any any "must-have" legendaries, and instead can choose between multiple legendaries, depending on personal preference. Check out our dedicated Legendary page to help you choose which ones to craft and wear.


Trinkets for Holy Priests

Work on properly evaluating the trinkets from Castle Nathria, World Quests, and Mythic+ is still underway. More accurate information will be provided soon so stay tuned!

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.

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.

Best in Slot List for Holy Priests in Ny'alotha

Due to the introduction of multiple gear acquisition methods outside of raid that also provide competitive items, Best in Slot lists are now a thing of the past.

When gearing your Holy Priest, you should be focusing on item level as a priority and then, in the situation where you have two available items of the same item level, pick the one with the preferred secondary stats. Due to all of our secondary stats being so close in value, there is no reason to drop item level just to change the secondary stats. You can read more about secondary stat priority on the stats page.

The following list is provided to guide you on the most ideal items in each slot you can obtain from Castle Nathria and help make you aware of the potential loot available.

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

Note about weapons: Weapons from Castle Nathria are obtained by looting tokens from various bosses then trading them in at your Covenant sanctum. Weapons are your largest single source of Intellect and your priority should always be to obtain and wear the highest item level weapon you can, regardless of secondary stats.

As you obtain new items, you should gem and enchant them as soon as possible to get the full benefit out of them.
