A new patch is right around the corner, which means shiny new priest gear is on its way too! In preparation for this, I’ve made a gear list for priests to reference as we progress into the newest content in the coming months.

If you haven’t heard yet, Blizzard has tweaked the system we’ve been using for the past couple of years and will now only allow players to acquire tier gear from raiding. Valor points will still be employed to purchase certain pieces of gear, but those unique set bonuses will be reserved only for players who actually enter raid dungeons.

ilevel 384, 397 and 410 gear

The following is gear available from Dragon Soul or the valor quartermasters in Orgrimmarand Stormwind. All drop gear is available in three different item levels for normal, heroic and Raid Finder difficulty.

Helm

Neck

Shoulders

Chest

Wrists

Hands

Waist

Legs

Finger

Trinket

Feet

Main-hand weapon

Off-hand weapon

Staff

Wand

The old ilevel 378 valor gear that appeared at the start of patch 4.2 is also still available for purchase at the quartermasters, if you’re in desperate need of some missing piece you can’t get else where.

l 378 5-man dungeon gear

If you’re behind the gear curve and looking to catch up or if you’re just trying to piece together a new alt, the latest 5-man dungeons being introduced in patch 4.3 will be a great help at getting you closer to raiding. The three new dungeons drop ilevel 378 gear, which is the same item level as the gear you’d receive from bosses on normal mode in the Firelands.

Helm

Shoulders

Back

Chest

Waist

  • Chillbane Belt Hour of Twilight, Arcurion (see note about hit, below)

Legs

Fingers

Trinket

Feet

Main-hand weapon

Staff

Off-hand weapon

A note about hit I have not listed any valor gear with hit on it, since I assume healers will choose the most optimized gear they can when given a choice. My reason for listing drop items with hit is so healing priests can keep potential upgrades in mind when RNG dishes out extra DPS cloth gear that your raid doesn’t need.

If you need some input on what gear is best for holy or discipline, I’d recommend checking out my stat priority posts for holy and discipline priests. The gear you want will definitely vary depending on the type of role you take on in your group, so you’ll want to use that noggin of yours to decide what is best.
