Disc Priest Cataclysm Gear: Levels 70-80


Northrend will likely dominate your 70’s, offering the best gear for your effort. Solo-able Isle of Quel’Danas rewards, high-level tailoring gear, and Hyjal vendor gear will give instance and raid drops a run for their money in these levels.

No level 80-required gear is included in this list. Level 70-required gear is shockingly useful at this point, and picking them up early can carry you through all ten levels with ease.

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

Check out our Disc Priest Leveling Guide: Levels 70 – 80 (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.
