Disc Priest Reforging

For those new or coming back for Warlords of Draenor, stat Reforging has been removed! Yay! Move onto the Disc Priest Professions and Consumables…

The method of reforging includes visiting a reforger in your major city and basically changing less useful stats or attributes into more useful stats. As a Disc Priest this is useful to change such stats as crit or hit into Spirit should you be having mana issues. Reforging gives you that little bit of wiggle room when you’re trying to get the most of out of your gear. It can also help you if you happen to only have a damage based piece of gear and you need to change it to a more healer-centric piece of gear.

We recommend for when starting out, to enchant your gear with our Disc Priest Enchanting recommendations, gemming your gear with our Disc Priest Gemming recommendations and then using these Reforging Recommendations to get the most out of your stats for healing purposes.

You can find the Reforger NPC that you need to interact with in one major city for each faction. Stormwind for Alliance and Orgrimmar for Horde. To find the reforger you can always ask a guard and they will place a flag on your map/mini-map. To interact with a reforger, simply right-click on them within range of them. Right clicking on them will open the reforging window. Now the window is open, make sure your character window is open. It’s now a matter of dragging and dropping items from your character window into the reforging window, selecting which stats you’d like to change, what stats you’d like to change them to, and pressing Apply.

Now it’s just a matter of knowing what stats we need as a Disc Priest. You can always refer back to the Disc Priest Stat Priority page.

Like with gemming, it’s best to ask ourselves questions before reforging…

Have I enchanted my gear yet?
Yes: Go to next question
No: Go to the Disc Priest Enchanting page.

Have I gemmed?
Yes: Go to next question
No: Go to the Disc Priest Gemming page.

Do I have any hit on my gear?
Yes: Reforge it to a more useful stat such as Spirit, Haste, Mastery or Crit.

What should I reforge my stats to?

Well, am I having mana problems?
Yes: Reforge to Spirit, if not:

Have I got an excessive amount of mana during encounters?
No: Keep Spirit as is.

What stats should I focus on?

For Atonement healing:
Spirit (until comfortable with mana regen) > Intellect > Crit > Mastery = Haste

For Shield & Bubble Healing:
Spirit (until comfortable with mana regen) > Intellect > Mastery> Crit = Haste

Due to the Disc Priest’s Stat Priority, reforging is really up to you and how you want to play your Disc Priest. Crit is better for Atonement healing as Crits caused by damage will heal for more through Atonement. Mastery is better for normal healing and shields as it makes your shields stronger.

This should give you an idea of what to aim for with your stats. Again, this is merely a guide and is dependent on many things. But reforging is quick, easy and often the cheapest way to change stats.

Now the next thing for you to do is head on over to the Disc Priest Professions page and choose your professions.
