General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Holy Priest in World of Warcraft Dragonflight 10.0.7.

If you were looking for WotLK Classic content, please refer to our WotLK Classic Holy Priest gear and best in slot.


Best in Slot for Holy Priest

Due to the wide variety of gear providing secondary stats that are all very close in value for us, and augments such as sockets or tertiary stats, there is no certain Best in Slot list. This page aims to guide you toward the best possible items, particularly in the Weapon and Trinket slots.

For regular item slots that are not used by tier or trinket/weapon effects, you will want to focus on item level while keeping the following in mind:

  • Socket — Around 10 item levels.
  • Leech — Around 15 item levels. **
  • Avoidance — Around 5 item levels. ***

** Note: The value of leech drops off the more you get. It is quite valuable up until you reach 4-5 items with it, then the value can drop off quite significantly. Focus on prioritizing item level if you reach this much leech from your gear.

*** Note: The value of avoidance depends heavily on the encounter. It is often much more valuable in Mythic+ as it can save you from many abilities that deal a large amount of damage. In raid, it varies from encounter to encounter and its value could range from 0 item levels up to 10.

To learn more about stats and how they affect your gearing, check out the Holy Priest Stats page linked below.


Onyx Annulet for Holy Priest

With Patch 10.0.7 we now have access to a powerful new ring, the Onyx Annulet. This ring can be socketed with unique special-effect gems. Unfortunately the power of this ring full socketed with gems makes it only around as powerful as an item-level 400 ring, meaning it won't be useful for most players. That said, if you do not have good rings and are planning on using the Annulet, you can see which gems to socket in it on the Enchants page linked below.

For more information regarding the Onyx Annulet, the Primordial Gemstones, and how to obtain them, check out our dedicated guide for it below.


Trinkets for Holy Priests

The following is a ranking of trinkets, aimed at use in a raid environment unless mentioned otherwise. 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 trinkets you will want to focus on, enhance your performance by increasing your stats. You will typically want to avoid trinkets that provide a healing or shielding effect as they do not scale as well as the stat trinkets. If you are not great at using "on-use" trinkets, feel free to opt for a more passive option that is easier to use, as you will likely get much more benefit from it.


Below is a list of the trinkets available from the current tier of content, ranked for usage in Raids. Most of the trinkets from Dungeons are on-use trinkets which can have varying value depending on the situation. On-use stat bonuses can be great if the encounter allows for pairing with Divine Hymn Icon Divine Hymn and Holy Word: Salvation Icon Holy Word: Salvation, but the Healing and Shield effect ones are prone to overheal and lost value.


The tier bonus for Vault of the Incarnates is focused around our healing Holy Words Holy Word: Serenity Icon Holy Word: Serenity and Holy Word: Sanctify Icon Holy Word: Sanctify. You should prioritise obtaining your 4-set bonus as soon as possible. Which 4 slots you obtain does not matter, it is only important that you have the bonus.

  • 2-set: Holy Priest 2pc Icon Holy Priest 2pc - Casting Prayer of Mending reduces the cast time of your next Heal or Prayer of Healing by 1.0 seconds and increases their Holy Word cooldown reduction effect by 2.0 seconds.
  • 4-set: Holy Priest 4pc Icon Holy Priest 4pc - When Holy Word: Serenity or Holy Word: Sanctify finish their cooldown, you gain 10% critical strike chance for 6 seconds.

Neither of the set bonuses change how we play. It continues to emphasise using Prayer of Mending Icon Prayer of Mending, Holy Word: Serenity Icon Holy Word: Serenity and Holy Word: Sanctify Icon Holy Word: Sanctify regularly.

We suggest you aim for the following Embellishments when crafting your gear:
  1. Elemental Lariat Icon Elemental Lariat - This neck has a unique Embellishment providing a strong secondary stat increase.
  2. Allied Wristguards of Time Dilation Icon Allied Wristguards of Time Dilation - These bracers provide not only yourself, but some nearby allies with increased Versatility.
  3. Magazine of Healing Darts Icon Magazine of Healing Darts - This Embellishment can be crafted on any item slot and is a small healing increase.
  4. Blue Silken Lining Icon Blue Silken Lining - This Embellishment can be crafted on any item slot and provides a Mastery increase when on high health.

The remainder of the embellishments provide much less value and should be avoided where possible.


There are no specific Necklaces or Rings which you should be aiming for. When choosing between your Jewellery items, try to keep in mind the stat priority for your preferred mode of content, to help decide which stats to prioritise.


There are no specific Weapons you should be aiming for. Try to obtain the highest item level Staff or Main-hand and Off-hand combination that you can, regardless of their secondary stats.


Valor upgrades for Holy Priest

You can upgrade gear obtained from Mythic+ with Valor points. We recommend starting with trinkets and weapons where possible, otherwise, target your lowest item level items first when upgrading. You can learn more about this system on the dedicated Valor page.


Enchants and Sockets

Once you have obtained a piece of gear containing a prismatic socket or needing to be enchanted, you will need to know how to modify it. Details about these tweaks can be found on our dedicated gems, enchants, and consumables page.
