Class Talents

The Priest Tree provides a lot of specific-utility talents that are easily accessible while swapping one or two points, depending on the encounter.

Let’s take a look at some useful things that can catch our eyes:

It’s very easy to swap one or two points to catch any situational talent depending of what you’re facing, to either take Mass Dispel, Phantasm if you can cheese some snare-mechanics, Dispel Magic/Improved Purify if needed, or Shackle Undead on some heavy-CC encounters, as some examples.

If no utility is needed, you can still grab some DPS points in the Mindgames’ branch, and with Shadow Word: Death & Death and Madness.

With Patch 10.0.5, one notable thing is the apparition of Sanguine Teachings, increasing our Leech by 3%, and San’layn granting an extra 2% Leech, making this talent interesting for Holy Priest.

Of course, we still have the Holy Tree to cover too, so let’s take a look at some builds in the next section!

Talent Builds

Raid build (AoE)


This build is aimed around Circle of Healing, thanks to Healing Chorus buffing it quite quickly now.

You can swap Benevolence with Power Word: Life if you need an additional panic button for spot healing, depending on the encounter.

As we saw in the previous section, you can swap talents around very easily if you need specific utility picks during any given encounter.

Mythic+ (Classic build, mixing damage/healing)


This M+ build will be rather classic. It will give you the assist DPS you need with Empyreal Blaze, and help your healing with Miracle Worker and Divine Image.

During Incorporeal weeks, you can pick Dominate Mind and Shackle Undead to be able to control both ghosts at the same time if needed, instead of your points in Light’s Inspiration.

The same applies with Entangling weeks, where you can take Phantasm instead, to help you remove it instantly after pressing Fade.
