Stat Priorities

Stat Ranking

Glimmer Build:

Intellect > Haste > Mastery > Versatility / Critical Strike

Avenging Crusader Build:

Intellect > Haste > Mastery > Versatility/Critical Strike

After the recent tuning to the talent, Mastery is now a strong option for healing. However,  if the healing requirement is low or if players are not stacked together, the value of Mastery decreases, and it might be worth dropping the stat for higher Versatility/Critical Strike.


Intellect > Haste > Versatility/Critical Strike > Mastery

Since Mastery does not contribute any damage the value is decreased significantly in Mythic+.

Stat Outline

Critical Strike: Chance for each attack and ability to do twice as much damage or healing.

Haste: Increases attack and spell-casting speed. It also reduces the cooldown of main rotation abilities such as Holy Shock and Crusader Strike.

Mastery: (Mastery: Lightbringer) Increases the healing you do based on how close your target is to you.

Versatility: Increases damage and healing done and decreases damage taken.


Races are a minor thing, and all of them are viable.

Zandalari Troll: has 2 good racials for raiding. Embrace of Pa’ku - Your abilities have a chance to grant you a 4% critical strike for 12 seconds. or Embrace of Gonk - Increase movement speed by 5%.

Blood Elf: Gives you Arcane Torrent, which is an extra Holy Power generator on a 2 min cooldown, and Arcane Acuity, which increases your critical strike chance by 1%.

Tauren: Gives you an AoE Stun with War Stomp, primarily sees use in PvP. Brawn buffs your critical strike healing by 2% and synergises with Holy Shock. And it gives you Endurance which provides you with extra Stamina.

Dwarf: Stoneform Removes all harmful Poison, Disease, Curse, Magic, and Bleed effects and reduces all physical damage taken by 10% for 8 sec. this is an additional defensive cooldown and sees a lot of play in High Mythic+.

Human: Will to Survive - Removes all stun effects. And The Human Spirit, where you gain 2% more of all secondary stats from all sources.

Dark Iron Dwarf: Fireblood is like Stoneform from Dwarf, but you get primary stats instead of the physical damage reduction.

Draenei: Gives you Gift of the Naaru, which can be good in some situations.

But you should choose what you like best and what fits the best for the content you play since the impact is minor.


Weapon: Sophic Devotion / Frozen Devotion.

Chest: Waking Stats.

Cloak: Regenerative Leech / Enchant Cloak - Graceful Avoidance.

Bracer: Devotion of Leech / Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Avoidance.

Legs: Frozen Spellthread.

Boots: Plainsrunner’s Breeze.

Rings: Devotion of Haste.

Waist: Shadowed Belt Clasp.

For Mythic+, you will want to use Avoidance enchants for Cloak and Bracer and Frozen Devotion for your Weapon.

Haste/Mastery: Keen Ysemerald +70 Haste and +33 Mastery

Holy Paladin Potions

Potion of Frozen Focus or Aerated Mana Potion is your mana potion.

Howling Rune Imbue your weapon with the energy of a Bakar, increasing Haste by 707 for 2 hours.

Refreshing Healing Potion this could save your life in a raid encounter.
