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 Battle for Dazar'alor, 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 raid. Playstyle makes a massive difference over having the most optimal gear slots.
Note: For the Dazar'alor raid items selections below, this list is meant to put some suggestions of pieces to pursue. Having this entire set be your best pieces is unlikely to be achievable and will likely focus too much on just one stat. Usually mid-high 20s is sufficient for haste value so Crit/Mastery can then be pursued in other slots in lieu of stacking just haste.

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.
- Crest of Pa'ku drops from Pa'ku's Aspect in Battle for Dazar'alor raid.
- Tidal Alchemist Stone can be crafted via Alchemy and creating the 385 gives you the recipe for the 400 which in turn gives you the recipe to make the 415 variant and is a superb progression trinket.
- Incandescent Sliver is a solid alternative trinket than the options above but does have a critical positional requirement.
- Azurethos' Singed Plumage drops from Azurethos in Stormsong Valley.
- Conch of Dark Whispers drops from Vol'zith the Whisperer in Shrine of the Storm.
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.
