Livinf Root Or Crescent Stafg

Gear is very important in WoW. The main stats to look for on any piece of equipment are Intellect, Stamina and Spirit. Intellect should generally be your number 1 priority on gear. Try and get as big a mana pool as possible It will allow you to heal longer, and deal out more damage in solo play.

Spirit and Stamina should be your second priorities. 3 points of Spirit is roughly equal to 1 mana regen a tick (every 2 seconds). There is no hard or soft cap on Spirit. It's good to have high Spirit in certain situations (it helps with downtime when leveling, especially combined with Spirit Tap. It's also good for long end-game raids), but generally, Spirit isn't the best stat. Stamina is better, because with more hitpoints, you will survive longer.

Also good to look out for with the new patch are items that add to healing and damage. They are much improved, and now often come with other stats on the items. They can now compete with stat gear for spots.

The following is a list of gear to look out for, the level reqs, and the stats.

End game, you basically want either the full Devout set for high spirit gear, or a combination of the three, depending on situations. There are also two epic sets, the Vestements of Prophecy and the Vestements of Transcendence. These only drop from Molten Core and Onyxia, and are extremely hard to get, as it requires a 40 member raid to complete this section.

Set Bonuses:

3 pieces: Allows 15% of your Mana regeneration to continue while casting.

5 pieces: When struck in melee there is a 10% chance you will Fade for 4 seconds.

8 pieces: When you cast Greater Heal, you now automatically cast Renew (Rank 5) as well for free.

As you can see, these are the ultimate items for any priest. The set bonuses on Transcendence are simply amazing. I would suggest a final aim of 5 pieces of Transcendence and 3 pieces of Prophecy to get the best of the set bonuses.

Keep in mind though that this gear is Molten Core and Onyxia only, and is extremely hard to get. You can only raid these places once every 6 days, and even then you have to contend with a number of other priests for the chance to get these items.

Now available, through an epic quest, is the ultimate staff for any priest, which can switch between 2 forms. To start the quest you need a drop off Majordomo in the Molten Core instance, another drop of Kazzak, and complete a trying quest.
