What is the BiS Discipline Priest gear?
With many different sources of gearing and loot scarcity in Shadowlands, 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 Shadowlands, from Mythic Dungeons, to help you decide what to prioritize.
focuses on maximizing item level
in most gear slots, with rings and trinkets. For example, a low-level Crit/Haste ring (desirable Disc stats) can be replaced by a significantly higher item level Vers/Mastery ring, particularly if it also has a socket.
In this list, there are a lot of non-Haste items described here. This is because World Boss loot will be about 23 item levels HIGHER than Mythic 0 quality loot. When Mythic+ comes out, you'll more easily be able to focus on dungeon loot to fill out some missing slots.

After getting one of those on-use options, pairing it with a passive option like the one linked below is best. One exception to this is

- Super solid stats and very high ilvl.
- The real "farmable" trinket that you want to focus on acquiring early. It drops from the Mists of Tirna Scithe dungeon. The secondary stats it provides will change based on what stat food you eat.

- Decent darkmoon deck trinket that is generally easy to acquire early on before raid.
Best Items to Upgrade with Valor Points in Shadowlands
Points is a returning currency brought back with Patch 9.0.5. With this new currency, players are able to upgrade items from Mythic+ Dungeon, either from running Mythic Keystones or from the Great Vault, up to item level 220. Similarly to
, Valor has a cap that is increased every week during the Season.
You can obtain Valor by completing Mythic+ dungeons or completing daily callings. You can learn more about Valor in our in-depth guide.

Discipline Priest's focus will primarily be on weapon and trinket upgrades for your valor. After that feel free to focus on items that will fill in missing/low slots from raid or pvp.
Strong and solid stats.
Slots to Prioritize in the Great Vault
If you checked the Castle Nathria loot list above, there are a great many of Haste-heavy items that feature very high item level from Sire Denathrius and Stone Legion Generals. Besides those excellent pieces, there are a couple slots that have poor itemization and you can use PvP or the Great Vault to fill in those gaps. In general, you would want to
pursue your biggest slot upgrade
, but when facing many equal item level options, you can opt for slots that are not easily replaced, like those not featured off the final two bosses.
Primary slots to aim for improving from the Great Vault would be:
Best PvP Gear for Discipline Priests in PvE
One of the most popular ways of gearing in Shadowlands is PvP. Unlike raiding and Mythic+, PvP provides players with a deterministic way of obtaining gear, making it more streamlined and less random than the other two high-end gearing options.
There are two main currencies for PvP gearing:
is used exclusively to purchase the base items at ilvl 200, while
is used to upgrade those base items to higher item levels based on your highest current rating in Rated PvP.

Strong stat benefit.
With PvP’s unique ability to offer a max of 233 item level weapons without defeating the end boss of a tier on Mythic, those weapons are always going to be worth acquiring if you can earn the rating. Below 226 ilvl, however, there are better itemized options from the Valor System and Heroic Sire Denathrius.
As with the Staff, Disc's options for Main Hand and Off Hand weapons are better from Dungeons and Raids unless you have access to them at a high item level.
Alternatives to Castle Nathria Pieces
As with Valor Upgrades, you may consider it easier to acquire these shoulders than the ones from Sire Denathrius.
Currently, there is no major difference between selecting a Main Hand + an Off Hand versus a Staff for Priest. There is potential for Leech/Avoidance/Speed procs on multiple items but generally, you'll want to focus on maximizing item level/spell power gains.When it comes to weapons from the raid. Stone Legion and Sire Denathrius drop their highest respective item level tokens and as a result should be the focus for which tokens to prioritize.
Sire's token will allow you to instantly get the highest item level staff
which should be your focus.

If you pushing for myt dungeons early
PoDS most of the damage got moved to confession + it have RNG that is not that great for a healer.
PW:R , You will not need to use this that much In 5 man you can easy keep atleast 3-4 people attoned all the time and recommended since our spells are pretty cheap and Disc worst enemy is the wind up time to spread attonements .
For same points you get more PW:S and 10 sec on pain suppression and faster for devoted .
I was wondering if Skjolrd braces move up in priority now that pw:shield is the primary atonement applicator?.
The table for TR from M+ is *way* off. It says that it's from Season 4, but I got 10 TR instead of 310 for completing a +3. I don't know if a really good table exists for sub +10 dungeons.
Disc 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.
