Holy Paladin


Written by Kuriisu Last Updated: 26th Apr, 2017


Greetings!  Welcome to our Holy Paladin guide for Legion, patch 7.2. Holy Paladins are a crucial part of every healing team we find ourselves in. Majority of Holy Paladin healing comes in the form of big single target heals via Holy Shock or Flash of Light, which are then replicated to our beacons making Holy Paladins the best at tank healing and really good at spot healing the lowest health members of the raid. Whilst the niche of our spec is single target/tank healing we  do also have some strong AoE tools in Light of Dawn and Judgment of Light, making us well rounded and very strong at nearly every situation a fight can present. 

Utility-wise we bring Blessing of Sacrifice, Lay on Hands, Aura Mastery, Blessing of Protection and Blessing of Freedom to the table, all tools which are very powerful in their own right.

Survivability wise we have 15% more health through Righteousness. Up next we have Divine protection which is really nice due to its short cooldown of 1 minute and then finally we have our iconic Divine Shield - a complete immunity for 8 seconds. Combine all these and you have yourself quite a sturdy healer.
