Disc Priest Cataclysm Gear: Levels 60-70


Most of your level 60 to 70 leveling experience will be undertaken in Outland. Quest rewards continue to offer a viable route to gearing your disc priest, but you will, as always, find better gear by running dungeons either with a dedicated group or using the LFG tool.

A great deal of gear becomes available at level 70, when Northrend ‘officially’ opens to your priest, but since you are probably trying to get to 70, I’m leaving all of those out except the BiS pieces.

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

Check out our Disc Priest Leveling Guide: Levels 60 – 70 (incoming!).

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.
