How do I sort DESC with emptys last?

There was a suggestion open in 2013 that references a similar request:

How do I use a JQL statement to ORDER issues by priority DESC with the empty priorities appearing last?

For example, right now I have to have two separate Filters, one where "priority = EMPTY" and one where "priority != EMPTY" so that I can effectively see issues that are explicitly marked as the most important. Both filters have ORDER BY priority DESC.

What am I missing? Thank you!

          Please try 

priority is not EMPTY ORDER BY priority DESC


priority is EMPTY ORDER BY priority DESC


Hope this helps
