Best Gems for Holy Priests

The gems you will use depend on the content you are primarily focusing on.

1.1.

Raiding

You should socket Sensei's Neltharite Icon Sensei's Neltharite or Sensei's Alexstraszite Icon Sensei's Alexstraszite in all of your sockets. Both gems are roughly equal in value. You should also equip one Skillful Illimited Diamond Icon Skillful Illimited Diamond or Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond.

1.2.

Dungeons

You should socket Crafty Alexstraszite Icon Crafty Alexstraszite or Crafty Ysemerald Icon Crafty Ysemerald in all of your sockets. Both gems are roughly equal in value. You should also equip one Fierce Illimited Diamond Icon Fierce Illimited Diamond or Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond.

1.3.

Dungeons and Raid

If you find yourself swapping between both dungeons and raids regularly and want to optimize for both with the same set of gear, we suggest going with Sensei's Alexstraszite Icon Sensei's Alexstraszite or Crafty Ysemerald Icon Crafty Ysemerald in all of your sockets. You should also equip one Inscribed Illimited Diamond Icon Inscribed Illimited Diamond.

2.

Best Enchants for Holy Priests

The optimal enchants are listed in the table below. You can also use the appropriate writ version of an enchant as a cheaper alternative.

Slot Enchantment
Weapon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion
Helm Incandescent Essence Icon Incandescent Essence
Cloak Enchant Cloak - Regenerative Leech Icon Enchant Cloak - Regenerative Leech
Chest Enchant Chest - Waking Stats Icon Enchant Chest - Waking Stats
Bracers Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Leech
Legs Temporal Spellthread Icon Temporal Spellthread
Belt Shadowed Belt Clasp Icon Shadowed Belt Clasp
Boots
  • Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam Icon Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam
  • Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze Icon Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze
Rings Enchant Ring - Devotion of Critical Strike Icon Enchant Ring - Devotion of Critical Strike

As a Holy Priest, stats are so close together for healing that you are largely free to use other stat enchants on rings if you prefer them. Mastery for Raiding and Haste for Dungeons are also good alternatives. Meanwhile, for weapon enchants, Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon - Sophic Devotion is the recommended choice for your weapon, but Enchant Weapon: Dreaming Devotion Icon Enchant Weapon: Dreaming Devotion can outperform it in situations the raid can be stacked for most of the encounter.

In situations where you want some additional survivability, such as difficult raid encounters or high Mythic+, you can opt for defensive-orientated enchants such as Frozen Spellthread Icon Frozen Spellthread on legs, Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance on Wrist, Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam Icon Enchant Boots - Watcher's Loam on Boots and Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance Icon Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance on Cloak.

Should you find a specific encounter or dungeon has hefty movement requirements, you can also opt for numerous Speed enchants to assist. These include Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed Icon Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed to Cloak, Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed to Wrist and Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze Icon Enchant Boots - Plainsrunner's Breeze to Boots.

Consumables for Holy Priests

3.1.

Best Flasks and Potions for Holy

Phial of Tepid Versatility Icon Phial of Tepid Versatility should be used in raid and mythic+. Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage Icon Iced Phial of Corrupting Rage is a close second but is a much less reliable throughput increase and can also deal damage to you at bad times.

For Mana return, Aerated Mana Potion Icon Aerated Mana Potion and Potion of Frozen Focus Icon Potion of Frozen Focus should both be kept available depending on the situation. While Potion of Frozen Focus Icon Potion of Frozen Focus is preferred; there are situations where you can not spend 10 seconds channeling and should instead use an Aerated Mana Potion Icon Aerated Mana Potion.

Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power Icon Elemental Potion of Ultimate Power (or its lesser Elemental Potion of Power Icon Elemental Potion of Power variant) is your recommended potion for burst healing throughput. These potions can also be obtained from a Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Ultimate Power/Potion Cauldron of Power Icon Potion Cauldron of Power.

Dreamwalker's Healing Potion Icon Dreamwalker's Healing Potion acts as your healing potion. Each use will incur a 5-minute cooldown, but multiple can be consumed in an extended boss fight. In addition, a Warlock's Healthstone Icon Healthstones do not share a cooldown with other healing consumables.

Finally, Alchemy offers several utility potions, including those that can be used while you are dead! While not every potion will be listed, you should at least keep a small number of Residual Neural Channeling Agent Icon Residual Neural Channeling Agent on you to use while you have an available potion and are waiting for a battle resurrection.

3.2.

Best Food for Holy

If available, Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak Icon Grand Banquet of the Kalu'ak / Hoard of Draconic Delicacies Icon Hoard of Draconic Delicacies is your food of choice for some additional Intellect. If a feast is unavailable, you should buff yourself with Filet of Fangs Icon Filet of Fangs.

3.3.

Additional, Optional Consumables

While they are not as necessary for success in areas of content as phials, potions and food, there are some additional consumables available for a small amount of extra temporary power for your character.

Weapon Runes function similarly to Weapon Oils of previous expansions, applying a temporary buff to your weapon that is not removed on death. In Dragonflight, you will want to apply a Buzzing Rune Icon Buzzing Rune to your weapons for some additional Critical Strike.

If you find yourself in need of a Bloodlust Icon Bloodlust-effect, drums are a useful tool to provide a similar, but weaker, form of the buff. At Level 70, the only drums that can be used are Feral Hide Drums Icon Feral Hide Drums.

Note that in Dragonflight, you can freely change your talents at any time outside of combat or a mythic+ dungeon. Because of this, there are no tome consumables to worry about!

3.4.

Augment Runes for Holy

In addition, if you can afford it, you should use Draconic Augment Rune Icon Draconic Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of the consumable runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.

Through the Patch 10.2 Emerald Dream Zone and its Dream Wardens Faction, you can also obtain the Dreambound Augment Rune Icon Dreambound Augment Rune, which is permanent!
