Gearing a Holy Priest for Icecrown Citadel

My raid group will be stepping into ICC-10 for the first time next week. I needed to gear up for that. Here is what I did as well as a few alternatives.

We have a nightly group doing a random heroic instance and also running the three new 5-man instances in Icecrown Citadel. So Emblems of Triumph are coming in pretty fast. Emblems of Frost are coming in two per day for the random, plus we do the weekly raid quest for 5 more. We are doing this until we are comfortable with our gear level as shown on Wow-Heroes.com.

Most of these items can be obtained just by doing heroics. Only a few were obtained from raiding and NONE are from heroic or hard mode raiding. In most cases these items replaced gear from Trial of the Crusader and Ulduar.

HEAD

Hood of Clouded Sight (75 Emblems of Triumph)

NECK

*Arcane Loops of Anger (Drop from the Devourer of Souls in Heroic Forge of Souls)

Love’s Prisoner (Drop from Bronjahm in Heroic Forge of Souls)

SHOULDERS

Mantle of Revered Mortality (45 Emblems of Triumph)

CHEST

Zabra’s Robe of Conquest (Tier 9, 50 Emblems of Triumph)

WAIST

Braid of Salt and Fire (Drop from Ick in Heroic Pit of Saron)

LEGS

*Pants of the Soothing Touch (Drop from Jaraxxus in Trial of the Crusader Normal Mode)

Legwraps of the Demonic Messenger (Drop from Jaraxxus in Trial of the Crusader Normal Mode)

FEET

Prelate’s Snowshoes (Drop from Tyrannus in Heroic Pit of Saron)

WRISTS

Royal Moonshroud Bracers (Crafted Tailoring)

HANDS

Zabra’s Gloves of Conquest (Tier 9, 30 Emblems of Triumph)

FINGERS

Oath of Empress Zoe (Drop from the Captain’s Chest in heroic Halls of Reflection)

Band of the Invoker (35 Emblems of Triumph)

TRINKETS

*Nevermelting Ice Crystal (Drop from Tyrannus in Heroic Pit of Saron)

Ephemeral Snowflake (Drop from Marwyn in Heroic Halls of Reflection)

*Talisman of Resurgence (50 emblems of Triumph)

BACK

Volde’s Cloak of the Night Sky (50 Emblems of Frost)

WEAPON

*Hammer of the Purified Flame (Mace, Quest reward for completing the Quel’delar quest chain)

Surgeon’s Needle (Dagger, Drop from Garfrost in Heroic Pit of Saron)

Perdition (Staff, Drop from Anub’arak in trial of the Crusader)

OFF HAND

*Shriveled Heart (Drop from the Captain’s Chest in heroic Halls of Reflection)

Lightbane Focus (Drop from Twin Valk’yr’s in Trial of the Crusader Normal Mode)

WAND

Brimstone Igniter (25 Emblems of triumph)

That puts me at 3000 +heals which is what Matticus recommends before entering ICC-25. WOW-Heroes.com has me listed as more than ready for ICC-25 and since we’re doing the 10 man I should be good to go.

* In a multiple listing this is the item that I am currently using.

  1. This list has been really useful for me as I gear up my own Holy Priest. Gave me a lot of good items to aim for without having to look them all up myself. 🙂

    Thanks for posting it!
