Last updated on Mar 21, 2023 at 19:43 by Proxs 17 comments

Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Holy Priest in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats, followed by advice on how to choose the rest of your gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Holy Priest PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Holy Priests in PvP

The stat priority for Holy Priests in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Haste;
  4. Mastery;
  5. Critical Strike.

Gear Recommendations

Intellect is the best stat in all situations. Versatility is the strongest secondary stat at all times due to it increasing the damage/healing you do and at the same time reduce the damage you take. Haste and Mastery are both equally valuable stats for Holy Priest. Haste is an amazing stat as it reduces your global cooldown, increases your cast and channel speed and reduces the cooldown of important spells, such as Prayer of Mending Icon Prayer of Mending. Mastery will increase your overall healing output from Mastery: Echo of Light Icon Mastery: Echo of Light. You should try to aim for a mixture of both stats.


General Guidelines

You want to use PvP items as much as possible since they have increased item level in PvP combat. This is what your final gear should look like, including set pieces and crafted items :


Note: it is essential to be wearing 2 PvP trinkets. This will increase your Agility and Stamina, as well as reducing the duration of any incoming CC on you by 10%. This effect jumps to 15% if you have the correct crafted item, in our case Infurious Binding of Gesticulation Icon Infurious Binding of Gesticulation.

Crimson Gladiator's Medallion Icon Crimson Gladiator's Medallion is a mandatory trinket to have equipped at all times. This allows you to remove any crowd control on yourself. You will use this trinket if you are stunned and will die in this stun, or on any form of CC if one of your teammates will die and you can save them.

Crimson Gladiator's Emblem Icon Crimson Gladiator's Emblem increases your maximum health when used. This gives you an additional defensive when you are the target. The significant health increase will often save your life if you use it when the enemy team is bursting you down.

Crimson Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity Icon Crimson Gladiator's Insignia of Alacrity is a good sustained damage and healing trinket. It will randomly give you a main stat buff. It is usually a good default pick when you don't need the Emblem to survive.

Crimson Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity Icon Crimson Gladiator's Badge of Ferocity is a powerful burst trinket. It gives you Intellect and has a relatively short cooldown, but is generally not as useful as the previous trinkets.


Gems and Enchants

Here are the best enchants and gems for a Holy Priest:

One of your gems should be Resplendent Illimited Diamond Icon Resplendent Illimited Diamond, and all your remaining gems should be a combination of Versatility and Haste/Mastery gems, depending on your current stat distribution. The gems are Stormy Malygite Icon Stormy Malygite, Energized Malygite Icon Energized Malygite and Zen Malygite Icon Zen Malygite.
