Discipline Priest

Spiritual Guidance: Playing what you want as a healing Priest One of the most common questions asked when people make a new Priest is, “What spec should I be?” or “What is the best spec?” Well, I’m here to tell you there isn’t one. Sure, you’ll see high-end players playing one particular spec. You’ll often hear about how the world-first guild took this one, or...

Tons of new caster animations are coming with patch 7.3 Casters are getting some fantastic spell animation changes on the patch 7.3 PTR. So far we have changes included for Restoration Druids, all Mages, all Priests, and Elemental and Restoration Shamans. Warlocks are being worked on but aren’t ready yet. Most of the updated animations seem to revolve around better spell effects with new glowy...




Spiritual Guidance: Diving into The Sunken Vault for your Priest class mount Everything these past 11 weeks has led to this. You’ve defeated the Nighthold, assaulted the Broken Shore, defended the Broken Isles, built up the armies of Legionfall, and breached the Tomb of Sargeras itself. Now we go for our reward, the epitome of the Light and our class as a Priest. The lore behind the...

Spiritual Guidance: Set bonuses and legendaries in patch 7.2.5 The PTR has been hopping with updates and getting tweaks here and there, but it seems the big changes are in and here to stay while the specific numbers may change slightly. Tier 20 set bonuses have been on the PTR for a bit, which are exciting and getting more relevant the closer we get...

Spiritual Guidance: Discipline and Holy changes in patch 7.2.5 Patch 7.2 has barely been out a month, and we already have 7.2.5 on the horizon via the ever-present PTR. We didn’t receive many changes in 7.2 and 7.2.5 is making up for that — especially in the face of Tomb of Sargeras and the next set of tier bonuses. Holy is receiving relatively few...

Spiritual Guidance: Priest healing in upper Nighthold Welcome back to Spiritual Guidance. We’ll be picking up today with the remaining two wings in Nighthold: Nightspire and Betrayer’s Rise. You can find the first two wings here. The upper reaches of Nighthold are just as beautiful as the rest. Tichondrius is tucked away in an alcove, directly above a room laden with desserts...




Spiritual Guidance: Priest Healing in Nighthold Nighthold is just beautiful. If you haven’t had a chance to go in, do. It feels very similar to Suramar: a living, thriving city. Bosses are tucked away in alcoves or side rooms at the top of staircases and it feels very immersive. The fights are challenging and interesting as well. I can’t say there’s...

Spiritual Guidance: Gearing your healing Priest in Nighthold Gear this expansion is very Diablo-ish. There’s a lot of RNG and everything can always upgrade. This is the reason you won’t find many best in slot lists out there. It’s less about “you must have this at all costs regardless of item level” and more about working with what you have already, or the...



Spiritual Guidance: Addons and UI for healing Priests Your UI and addons are all about what works for you. Some people work well with the base UI, but it’s very lacking, and most will opt to rearrange it so that they get the information they need much quicker. It’s a fact that healing someone with click-to-heal or mouseover macros will be faster than...

Spiritual Guidance: Patch 7.1.5 changes for healing Priests The patch 7.1.5 PTR launched early last week, and along with it came the usual datamining. This early on in the PTR cycle, everything is of course subject to change, but I think the overall changes and tone are important to discuss. We can glean information about what Blizzard is thinking about our class based...

Spiritual Guidance: Training your Withered as a healing Priest Doing Withered Training as a healer appears impossible, but it’s not actually hard. The secret is crowd control and letting your army do the work. Holy surprisingly has great crowd control via Chastise + Censure, making training a breeze once you figure out the intricacies. The basic gist If you’re just starting out and have...

Priest hidden Artifact
How to get all 3 Priest hidden Artifact appearances Hidden Artifact appearances have been the talk of WoW lately, with each class receiving a unique way to acquire each appearance. While Priest hidden Artifact appearances do involve a bit of RNG and grinding, they aren’t particularly difficult to get. Your current spec and loot spec don’t matter for any of these, just that you...

Spiritual Guidance: Getting started as a fresh 110 Priest Legion has been out for almost a month, and we’ve had the chance to putter around the Broken Isles. Previously we covered questing as Holy or Discipline and tinkering around with your Artifact Weapon paths along the way. But when you finally reach 110, you’re suddenly greeted with a deluge of options, to the point that...

Spiritual Guidance: Artifact paths for Discipline and Holy Priests Legion will be here Tuesday, and with that comes our brand new Artifact weapons. Now, as soon as you enter Dalaran, your class NPC will appear with a very urgent and mysterious quest. The quest leads you to choose your Artifact, then immediately launches into the respective Artifact questline before setting up your class hall. Once...

Spiritual Guidance: Legion Priest healing talents and specs The Legion pre-patch is coming tomorrow. What spec should you be? That, my friends, is up to you. If you want to be a traditional healer, Holy is your pick. If you want to DPS, try Discipline. For those of you looking to switch from your current spec, you’re in luck! Because all your stats...

Spiritual Guidance: Discipline Priest questing in Legion Last time we covered first impressions of Holy questing. This month brings us Discipline, which has long been able to DPS on its own, whether you were doing daily quests in Mists of Pandaria or leveling to 100 in Warlords of Draenor. Even though the function is not entirely new or as ground-breaking as Holy,...
