General Information

Welcome to our Holy Priest healing guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.1.5. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Holy Priest in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Zolvolt, officer and long-time healing Priest of Exiled Legion, whom you can follow on Twitter.

1. Class Overview

The Holy specialisation allows for smooth and very strong AoE/raid healing, and it performs very well in terms of single target healing as well.

It is also worth noting that Holy Priests are somewhat lacking in the mobility department, although this is not a very serious problem.

In order to properly play a healing role, you will need more than just class-specific information. To better understand healing in general, we recommend that you read our healing guide.

2. What Has Changed in Legion?

The Holy specialisation has changed drastically from Warlords of Draenor. We list the most important changes below.

3. Patch 7.1.5 Changes
