Rares by Adventuring Class: Priests

Can't tell your figwart from your mantrap? Uncertain what rares you should be scrounging for mastercrafted gear as you level up? Here's a down-and-dirty guide, just for healers! (Make sure to check out the Other Notes section at the bottom for additional explanation!)

All priests share the same rare requirements other than armor. To ease confusion, however, I have split the leather-wearing druids into a separate chart.

Druids

Wardens and Furies wear leather armor, crafted by tailors. The most suitable set will be the "woven" set (STA/WIS), though DPS-specced druids may want some pieces from the base set (STR/STA/AGI).

10 metallic reptile hide tungsten ore or bubinga lumber tungesten ore* black star sapphire none yet effulgent material
*=T9 & 10 changes the rare jewelry to mostly use the rare ore. The exception to this is some T9 jewelry from Quel'ule faction recipes.

Shaman/Cleric

The shaman class (mystic and defiler) wears chain armor, and tend to prefer either the "brigandine" set (STA/WIS/INT) or the "reverent" set (STR/WIS/INT). The cleric class (templar and inquisitor) wears platemail armor (set name for STA/WIS/INT is "plate"). All of these require the same rare ore.

Crafters Needed

If you are a cleric or shaman, seek out an armorer for your armor. If you are a druid, seek out a tailor. Tailors will also make your cloak and hex dolls, sages will make your spells, jewelers will make your jewelry, woodworkers make your bucklers as well as wooden weapons, weaponsmiths make metal weapons. When you have a crafted weapon created, you will want to ask for the "blessed" imbue, which has a chance to proc a +spell damage/+healing proc.

Other Notes

Tiers: I know folks can be confused by the tier-thing, so here's the breakdown:

The only exception to the above are mastercrafted hex dolls, which are at the start of the tier (10, 20, etc.)

Jewelry: In addition to rings, earrings, bracelets and the like, there are various other jeweler-made items from the rare root (scarves), rare hide (belt, tomes) and so on, but since there is a jewelry revamp in-progress, giving class-specific recommendations on these will have to wait.

Dolls & Cloaks:Hex dolls begin in tier 2, cloaks become available in tier 3. Neither are yet available in T10, since we only have a partial tier, and the recipes are later in the tier.

Experts: At this time, there are six level 70 priest experts that require tier 7 resources (moonstone) instead of tier 8 (fire emerald). These "marquee" spells were part of the EoF expansion, when the level cap was 70, and used the resources available at that time. Check with your local sage before obtaining the rares for these experts, just in case they are changed at some point:
