Heirloom Items for Leveling Priests
Finwe pointed out that if you are leveling a new Priest as an alt, and you have a level 80 main, you should pick up some Heirloom items if you have the Emblems to spare. If you are not familiar with the relatively new Heirloom Item system, here's the skinny. These items bind on account, meaning you can mail them from your main to your alt, as long as both toons are on the same server. The stats for the item change depending on the level of the toon carrying the item, and are usually approximately the same as a Rare item of the toon's level. You can enchant these items, but the enchant cannot have any level restrictions, or you will not gain any benefit from them.

Here is a listing of all the available BoA/Heirloom items via WoWhead. There are lots of good PvP items as well - these must be purchased from Knight Dameron (Alliance only) or Stone Guard Mukar (Horde only) when your faction controls Wintergrasp, and are purchased with Stone Keeper's Shards. Here are my selections of good items for a leveling priest - or any cloth-wearing, non-PvP caster.

Items purchased with Emblems of Heroism can be purchased from a couple of places:
Please note that if you need to convert your Emblems of Conquest to Valor and then to Heroism in order to purchase these items, I do not think you can do this at Brammold Deepmine - you will need to go to your factions' seller, and convert them via the other vendors nearby - it's a pain in the butt process too.

If you are purchasing Heirloom items with Champion's Seals, you can purchase them from Dame Evniki Kapsalis at the Argent Tournament, located at 69,23 inside the Argent Crusade's tent. Please note: You cannot purchase these items from the Dame until you are an Argent Crusader, meaning you have earned either the Exalted Argent Champion of the Alliance or Exalted Argent Champion of the Horde achievements.

    Just FYI, Discerning Eye of the Beast, is not unique-equip so you can actually have two. And their "restore mana" effect does stack.

    Also you say it's a "pain in the butt" process to convert emblems into valor -> heroism. Are you by any chance converting the emblems one by one? It is actually possible to convert more of them at once if you shift-click just like when buying items off vendors.

    That is really useful info about the trinkets, thanks! I'll have to update it.

    Regarding the pain in the butt of converting... in my defense I wrote this months ago, before I was aware of the little goblin badge changer down in the sewers and, uhm, yes, back then I was changing them one by one.

    I actually just figured out a few weeks ago that I can change them in quantities of up to 20 at a time. I have no idea why I hadn't tried before. I felt very dumb. >.<
