On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Holy Priest in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Holy Priests

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

If you find yourself swapping between both dungeons and raids regularly and want to optimise for both with the same set of gear, we suggest going with Critical Strike gems and enchants on any items you share between both activities. Critical Strike and Mastery both have similar value in a raid environment, but Critical Strike is superior in dungeons.

1.1. Raiding

You should use Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Masterful Tidal Amethyst Icon Masterful Tidal Amethyst (or the cheaper Masterful Kubiline Icon Masterful Kubiline) in all other sockets.

1.2. Dungeons

You should use Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect in one socket, and Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) in all other sockets.

2. Best Enchants for Holy Priests

2.1. Raids

Slot Enchantment

2.2. Dungeons

3. Consumables for Holy Priests

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Holy

Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used for raids along with Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment as your potion of choice. You can also use Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect to pre-pot at the beginning of the fight. Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion can also be used once per fight as an instant Mana restore if the fight does not allow for usage of Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment.

Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion should be used alongside Healthstone Icon Healthstones for emergency healing.

3.2. Best Food for Holy

You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast for the buff to your Intellect (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet if you cannot afford the +100 food).

3.3. Augment Runes for Holy

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
