Disc Priest Cataclysm Gear: Levels 30-40


Once you hit 30, you’ll get deeply- and possibly fatally- involved in the new instances, notably Uldaman. At this point you are also resilient enough to do a little solo leveling again, so don’t forget to try it out (particularly in PvP).

Many excellent pieces of equipment are available for these levels at vendors and the Auction House, making this set of levels more viable for solo leveling, as well.

We’re now maximizing:
Spirit > Intellect > Critical > Haste > Stamina

Check out our Disc Priest Leveling Guide: Levels 30 – 40

Heirloom gear is not included in this list, but is dicussed here.


An exhaustive list of enchantments would be too exhausting to contemplate, so for each piece I simply recommend one enchantment that I think gets the job done and will serve you well for most of your ten levels. Re-enchanting leveling gear is, I think, neither time nor cost effective given the relatively small benefit you’ll enjoy.
