What is the BIS Discipline Priest gear?
Because Titanforging allows gear from many different sources to be competitive, targeting your absolute Best in Slot gear isn't entirely realistic; instead, we've created a Best in Slot list from the ideal Discipline Priest raid drops found in Uldir, to help you decide what to prioritize and how best to spend your Seal of Wartorn Fate.
While raid drops are generally the most reliable way of getting high item level gear, many other items can be just as good if not better, so you should reference the stat priorities listed on the stats page and our Raidbots guide to help determine the best set of gear based on what is available to you.
Discipline Priest will primarily focus on maximizing item level in most gear slots, with rings, trinkets and azerite slots (Helm/Chest/Shoulders) as the notable exceptions. Those slots should be targeted when possible for specific stat or Azerite bonuses although they too can be replaced if there is a significant item level increase. For example a low level Mastery/Haste ring (desirable Discipline stats) can be replaced by a significantly higher item level Vers/Crit ring, especially if it also has a socket.
Due to personal loot restrictions in BfA, keep in mind that obtaining the below items may be more difficult so do not be stressed if you do not have the perfect gear set going into Uldir. Playstyle makes a massive difference over having the most optimal gear slots.
|Staff||Heptavium, Staff of Torturous Knowledge||G'Huun||Uldir|
|Main Hand||Tusk of the Reborn Prophet||Zul||Uldir|
|Off-Hand||Codex of Imminent Ruin||Mythrax the Unraveler||Uldir|
|Helm||Horrific Amalgam's Hood||Mythrax the Unraveler||Uldir|
|Shoulders||Mantle of Contained Corruption||Zek'voz||Uldir|
|Cloak||Fetid Horror's Tanglecloak||Fetid Devourer||Uldir|
|Chest||Robes of the Unraveler||Mythrax the Unraveler||Uldir|
|Gloves||Mutagenic Protofluid Handwraps||Vectis||Uldir|
|Belt||Cord of Septic Envelopment||G'Huun||Uldir|
|Legs||Leggings of Lingering Infestation||MOTHER||Uldir|
|Ring||Band of Certain Annihilation||Mythrax the Unraveler||Uldir|
|Trinket||Twitching Tentacle of Xalzaix||Mythrax the Unraveler||Uldir|
Trinkets are less sensitive to item level differences. For example, some trinkets, like the Revitalizing Voodoo Totem are very underpowered compared to other dungeon effects, so a high ilvl totem may not be better than one of the trinkets below unless it is a massive difference in intellect. Below are trinkets that are all reasonably close in value and should be a focus to prioritize in BfA.
- Twitching Tentacle of Xalzaix drops from Mythrax the Unraveler in Uldir raid
- Azurethos' Singed Plumage drops from Azurethos in Stormsong Valley.
- Ignition Mage's Fuse drops from Knight Captain Valyri in Tol Dagor.
- Conch of Dark Whispers drops from Vol'zith the Whisperer in Shrine of the Storm.
- Darkmoon Deck: Tides is a crafted trinket that is OK for its item level but the above trinkets are far better options. If this trinket is cheap and easy to buy then by all means get it for the item level, but farming for the above trinkets will yield far greater value..
Legendaries for Leveling
Discipline will often be the easiest spec to level as due to their powerful warmode talents and defensives. The optimal legendaries will be Sephuz's Secret and Muze's Unwavering Will. This will allow constant damage increases to quickly kill mobs and make it easier to rapidly move through the content.
