The 3.2 list remains relevant if you aren't fully 245+ geared yet, so head there for details on the ToC loot options (and for my thoughts on gear lists in general).

While I don't include hit gear in the list, I have included the shadow T10 gear, as several pieces have haste and crit on them. Obviously, choosing shadow tier gear will prevent you from getting the 4-piece healing bonus. How you relate to that is up to you...perhaps the subject of a future post. (Thx to jedimax for the tip!)

And if you're new here: this list isn't designed to explain how to choose your gear. For my thoughts on gearup plans, stats for disc priests, and enough words to make a nice tossed salad with, have a look here (for tank healers) and here (for raid healers).

    Wow @ the lack of haste gear.

    I guess they realized how much the ToC trinkets sucked. That Abacus is sick.

    I like the proc-y stuff. Adds some excitement to the game. I kinda want that Trauma mace. Guess I'll have to pick up an offhand somewhere along the way.

    GAH!!! Too soon! I still have to raid more to gear up into the 3.2 list! Quick anyone need a disco?! Im really getting into the whole raiding scene and would love to find a guild that is Disc friendly and doesnt mind helping gear up new raiders

    Can't edit posts...I just wanted to say that I find these lists to be invaluable and the 3.2 list was my goal since hitting 80 about a month ago...now if only there was a gear list for getting the gear list...

    Muradin's Spyglass does specify "Damaging spell at an opponent".

     
    12/01/2009 8:26 PM Paolo

    @Sin: Yes it does, hence my caveat. Assuming it procs on dots (as the wording would indicate) I would just need to keep SW:P up (casting approx every 25 seconds) to stay at 10 stacks, or 200 SP. Given that the trinket drops in 10man, it's very accessible, so it might be interesting to toy around with.

     
    12/02/2009 8:59 PM Sinespe

    Y'know, some of us have been doing Ulduar since a month after it launched, and have never seen Eye of the Broodmother. "Accessible" is an interesting term.

    Thanks for the list again,

    but i think the Items from the Shadow-Sets should also be listed as they have haste AND crit. (i think about taking 3 items from the shadow set for my disc priest)

     
    12/15/2009 1:12 PM -Mo

    These lists are great! Thanks so much for putting them together. I hadn't thought about picking up the shadow tier, definitely worth considering. WTB my T8 set bonus back :(

     
    12/16/2009 10:44 AM ambient

    Just wanted to let you know how very useful your lists are, and how often I reference them. So thank you!! They keep me on the straight and narrow, such as last night where I nearly rolled on the haste/MP5 necklace from the new 5 mans, thinking it was the crit/haste one. Bad crit junkie, you no want haste-only gear!!

    And am excited to see the Shadow tier gear on here; as a Spriest on the side I've always loved mixing the two. Especially with the (IMO) lackluster 4pc T10 healing bonus.

    Tip to those stuck with sad trinkets (I feel your pain): even if your guild isn't running Ulduar anymore, if the weekly raid quests take you to Deconstructor or Flame Leviathan, convince them to take out Razorscale for you! Even if they won't hand you the Broodmother trinket outright if it drops, a number of casting classes now value haste a bunch more than previously (including shadow priests, resto druids, at least some warlocks), so the +crit equip bonus on this one should mean less competition.

     
    12/18/2009 1:13 PM Novalix

    Thanks for the list.

    By the way, you spelled/typed a boss' name incorrectly. It's "Valithria Dreamwalker."

    Thanks,

    What are peoples thoughts on Ephemeral Snowflake? I am using Nevermelting Ice Crystal and Talisman of Resurgence right now. Do you think this would be a good upgrade, and if so for which.

     
    12/23/2009 12:49 PM michelle

    I have the snowflake, along with solace and talisman, and dont love it. It was buggy for a minute, which is probably why it left a bad taste. Even though it now procs properly, It just isnt my preferred trinket.

     
    1/04/2010 11:03 AM Travis

    This is a great list. However .. It would be nice to see a list with a few more options, and or obtainable things for non raiders and part time players. Something like http://shadowpriest.com/viewtopic.php?f=62&t=24134

    :P

    Paolo, not sure you're updating this again, but you seem to be missing the Cauterized Cord (Normal is http://www.wowhead.com/?item=51017, Heroic is http://www.wowhead.com/?item=51862), from 10man Putricide - just want to prevent 10-man only raiders to get the frost belt for lack of alternatives ;-P

     
    1/05/2010 6:43 PM Paolo

    @Travis - I don't expect that I'll be adding gear from 5-mans except as they reflect stepping stones to raid gear. I've definitely included all the relevant emblem gear, though. And gear from the last tier is on the 3.2 page (linked at the top of the page). I built this list primarily for raiders who are up to date (within reason), so I apologize if that means I'm not the best source for your gearup plans :(

    @Tsark - I'm definitely planning to keep this up to date. Thanks for the pointer; the belts are now included. I <3 my 10-man friends!
