As we transition from the launch of Battle for Azeroth into the opening of Uldir here are some trinkets to look out for while gearing up early on as well as what to aquire at higher gear levels.  As of right now most trinkets do not have significant impact on performance. If you want to compare your trinkets use the spreadsheet.

Available Trinkets


This trinket amazing for early progression, being the only trinket that is “guaranteed.”  The amount of mana it returns is decent and it also heals people in a chain heal like fashion.  Look to get this as one of your trinkets going into Uldir progression.

World Drop

This trinket amazing for early progression, since it is BoE and more than likely someone on your server will have this for sale.  It gives very solid stats since it is a stat stick with int and controllable secondary stats.  See below for what rotational abilities give what stat.

Haste- Healing Rain (each tick), Wellspring (each hit), Unleash Life


With static int this trinket provides solid consistent throughput with an active single target ramping heal. This helps with single target or tank healing but has low impact at the start.
Provides consistent throughput with the base int as well as the proc critical strike. Overall a solid trinket that is useful in any scenario.

One of the two mana return trinkets in Battle for Azeroth with this one being on use rather than a proc. The mana returned from this trinket is quite significant and can aid on mana intense fights.  If you feel mana starved, seek this out as a way of alleviating mana starvation.

The on use of this trinket is fantastic if you can line it up with something like Healing Tide Totem. The haste ramps up every 4 seconds meaning you will want to pre-cast this trinket 10 seconds in advance if you are pairing it with Healing Tide Totem.
The reverse of Ignition Mage’s Fuse in terms of timing it with abilities. Provides extremely high upfront intellect that decays over time or when you take damage. Taking damage reduces the intellect by one “step” (as if a second had passed). This is incredible if used with a burst of healing after a large damage event.
Part of a set with Lord Waycrest’s Signet, this trinket provides a slight healing and damage increase. If you wear the set you have a chance each time this trinket procs to also proc the other half of the trinket at a reduced rate. This can be incredibly strong if you are dpsing in down time or maintaining flame shock on a boss over the course of a fight.


This trinket provides a decent on use effect that increases healing done to the target for the next 5 direct heals you cast on them. Overall this is better than something like Revitalizing Voodoo Totem at equivalent item level.

The better of the two raid trinkets this provides flat crit with essentially a proc of intellect. A solid trinket all around much like Conch of Dark Whispers.

World Bosses

Much like Balefire Branch, this trinket provides a massive boost on activation that falls off over time. This can be quite strong for massive Healing Tides although getting a high item level version will be hard.
Much like other trinkets, this provides a nice flat throughput increase with on proc versatility.

This trinket is mediocre due to it needing to proc when healing is needed.  The main downfall of this trinket is having static mastery and being very proc reliant.

A strong trinket that provides a nice crit boost when you need it most. Seeing as crit is our best stat and this trinket is fully controllable, this is one of the better trinkets if you can obtain it. Like other world boss trinkets, good luck trying to get this at a high enough item level to have it be impactful later in the tier.
