Thanks for this great guide!

 

 

Found one typo in glyph section: You wrote that the Glyph of Denounce reduces the cooldown of said spell, when in fact it reduces the cast time of denounce.

Thanks for pointing this out. It will be fixed :)

Since we are in much more need to stay stacked on Holy Power now, wonder how viable it would be to throw out some Crusader strikes to keep that pool up?

They increased the cost of Crusader Strike in 6.0 It's worth using, just be cautious of boss mechanics while you're in melee.

I notice the guide says that Sacred Sheild is usable on more than 1 target for holy spec, but the tooltip says the limit is one target. Don't have access to the game to see what the in-game tip says, but I figure one of those two has to be wrong.

 

Great guid though!

The tooltip is wrong, only Ret and Prot have the 1 target limitation. :)

Is Eternal Flame's HoT effect supposed to be refreshing and adding to Illuminated Healing?

After healing for a few days, I have gotten the feeling that Hpallies are back to being single target focused healers. Our aoe healing feels low and with the large health pools most situations required single target healing. Since we are now struggling to get heal pools filled and are more single target focused I think that the stat priorities you have are out of balance. I would rate them Int > Crit > Multistrike=Haste > Spirit = Mastery=Versatility. With the reduction of absorbs this xpac I don't feel the strength of stacking mastery that was strong last patch. I think HPallies need more raw healing output and need to focus on single target healing, thoughts?

In that list, the items are just listed in terms of item level. Normally, anything that doesn't apply to the spec shouldn't be there (in this case, I guess it's a bit debatable, what with Judgments and Crusader Strike), but it's not meant to tell you which piece to choose. That's what the very start of the page (where 2 trinkets are recommended) is for.

Even with Judgment and Crusader strike it doesnt proc you must be in a DPS spec but the trinket is still good b/c it still amplifies healing, Thok's Trinket is currently not working, so in my opinion using Siegecrafter, Nazgrims, or Sha's would be BiS

this guide isnt fully updated for 6.0

 

i only took a very short look and encountered multiple errors.

in the addon section you are mentioning hand of sacrifice, it is gone for holy.

in the stat section you say mastery is our best stat. in fact it might be true for now, as we can spam HR endless, but it lose drastically as we reach 100 and can't obtain this playstay. espacially when we chose the 100 bacons talent.

it is more like crit >= haste >> rest

you also didnt mention haste is reducing the cd of HS wich is. beside HR, our only source for holypower.

Regarding stats, you are right, but the guide is not for level 100, so we are not yet concerned with that. I'm fixing the Hand of Sacrifice oversight now :) Thank you.

So i just had a Question regarding glyphs and talents for the Holy paladin.

I currently Run the talent Sanctified Wrath as well as the glyph of merciful wrath and sence making the change my Healing numbers have skyrocketed changing Avenging Wrath to a more on cd ability rather then a defensive Cd is there particular reason why this is not part of the guide as an option?

As Far as Holy paladin i currently run the Sanctified Wrath Talent along with the Glyph of Merciful Wrath and have seen great improvement in strength of my heals by turning avenging wrath into an on cd ability instead of defensive cd. Is there a reason as to why to is not an option on the guide?

Something that might be worth noting is that Beacon of Insight will bounce back to you if everyone is topped off, and Glyph of Protector of the Innocent will trigger your Beacon of Insight. What this can allow you to do is bounce it between you and the tank without needing to cast a full heal on yourself. You put it on the tank, heal them causing it to bounce to you, cast your WoG/EF on the tank and the glyph will trigger the beacon causing it to bounce back to the tank (assuming everyone is topped off).

Merciful wrath is an extremely useful glyph. Avenging wrath without the glyph is an incredibly strong ability, and it sometimes causes some healing to go to waste. You top everyone off with one holy prism and you sit there with a really strong buff for 15 seconds not doing anything, and when it's off you can struggle to top people back up. In a raid environment it can basically snipe heals, your healing can go through the roof but the healing of your other healers just goes to waste. Merciful wrath redistributes some of this healing, making it a more rounded CD. In general I find merciful wrath to be the more practical choice, however if the fight has insane damage going out, ex: the second last boss in the everbloom when people don't jump, then you may want a full wings.

 

Given that our glyph chocies are flash of light, hand of sac, protector of the innocent, lay on hands, and merciful wrath, I think merciful wrath is very strong choice for most fights and should probably be included in this guide.

 

On mythic garry, merciful wrath is the difference between having wings on the first transition, having it up just after the second whirling and having to save it for phase 3 and then having it for the end of phase 4, or just saving it for phase 4, and having wings up for the iron star, the first transition, the first whirling, phase 3, and phase 4. When running the glyph and not running it my HPS was roughly the same, but people were still safe during times when I would have had full wings but had half wings instead, and they were safer during times when I had half wings where I would've had no wings. 

 

It might also be worth noting that if wings ever got nerfed, the usefulness of this glyph would be greatly reduced. The reason merciful wrath is strong is because avenging wrath is sometimes too strong, if avenging wrath were nerfed it's possible that half wings becomes not enough to handle certain levels of outgoing damage.

A few errors that I found:

  • "wow_icon_ability_paladin_blessedmending. Sacred Shield should be kept up with 100% uptime on three targets. Two of the targets should be the current tanks, and the other two... (NOTE: there is only one other target, as SS doesn't have 4 charges)
  • You should always keep up Sacred Shield on two targets that are taking constant damage. This will mostly be the two tanks, but it can very depending on the encounter. (NOTE: Should say "vary" instead of "very")

Also, Denounce no longer has a mana cost, so the following point can change: 

 

 Denounce deserves a special mention. This spell can be a useful and much-needed DPS boost during progression content, provided that you can spare the Mana required for it.

I'm struggling quite a bit with stat weights, on the guide it says that haste wins all and you should put haste enchant and gems on all your gear but when I go to Mr. Robot it says I should be using crit enchants and gems?

 

I've not long been back to the game after a long break so really struggling to get up to speed with things!

      For some odd reason, a player received a Corrupted Item from the Stockades while leveling, even though the system has been removed from the game in the Shadowlands pre-patch.
      Argoniek received a Corrupted Item (Standard Issue Prisoner Shoes) while leveling their character through a dungeon, which is weird, as Corrupted Items never dropped for low-level characters in the first place. Here's an image the player shared on Reddit.

      Fortunately, the item lacked any Corrupted Effects, according to the player. Just imagine the chaos that would ensue with Corruption Effects on leveling gear!

      With Mythic+ becoming much more relevant and presumably many more players heading in/returning to the dungeons next week with patch 9.0.5, this video going through some important interrupts for all the Shadowlands dungeons is especially useful!
      Interrupting is one of those anger and conflict-breeding things in dungeons, as fights often break out over a player or players (usually DPS) not doing enough of it, and then because of that there can be many spammed interrupts on 1 ability in response, so it's especially important to know what spells and abilities should be focused on. Tactyks goes through all 8 dungeons and said key interrupt targets:   If you want to prepare for next week's Valor Point system and new gear grind even more, you can also check out our Mythic+ dungeon rankings, weekly routes and specific class tips as well.

      After some community outcry over the new changes coming to keystone next week, Blizzard have detailed a new addition to patch 9.0.5, aimed at improving the weekly Mythic+ keystone generated. Players will be getting their first weekly keystone at the same level of the highest completed key from the previous week! Check out the full and detailed explanation:
      Weekly Mythic Keystones (source)
      One of our goals in 9.0.5 has been to address a situation we introduced in Shadowlands with Mythic Keystones never de-leveling. We received a great deal of feedback on our planned adjustment, which is currently outlined in the 9.0.5 patch notes. With this proposed change, we would reintroduce an awkward dynamic where it wouldn’t be possible to sustain running a single Mythic Keystone dungeon per week, even if you always cleared the dungeon in time, because decay would necessitate re-leveling your keys every other week.
      When we created the original logic for Mythic Keystones in 2016, we wanted to make sure that players were getting Keystones that appropriately suited their proficiency in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we wanted to reinforce the importance of clean and well-executed dungeon runs. Having Keystones decay from one week to the next accomplished both of those goals. However, in Shadowlands, we introduced the Great Vault and more Season-driven tracking of performance in Mythic Keystone dungeons, and we unintentionally disabled the logic for de-leveling Keystones, but the reasons for the original design still apply.
      We feel that the game should compensate players who consistently succeed at a certain difficulty by giving them keys that start at that level the following week, so we’re working on an update to 9.0.5 that should alleviate that concern while still satisfying the goals of the original system:
      In a given week, if you finish a Mythic Keystone dungeon in time, the next week’s Great Vault will contain a Keystone of that same level. So, for example, if your highest Mythic Keystone completion during week one is a +15 that you completed in time, you will get another +15 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week two. If you run that +15 during week two and fail to meet the timer, however, and complete no other +15 (or higher) Mythic Keystone dungeons the rest of week two, you will receive a +14 Keystone from the Great Vault to start week three.
      Thank you for your feedback and understanding.

      With the announcement of patch 9.0.5 arriving next week many players have been asking how exactly the Mythic+ Valor Point system achievement requirements for item level caps will work in regard to alts, and if they'll have to re-do the achievements on each alt.
      Luckily we do have some fairly official information on the matter, as Blizzard did mention this in a group interview with Chinese sites, where Ion Hazzikostas, Ely Cannon and Frank Kowalkowski answered many questions, this one being particularly relevant:
      While we don't have an explicit blue post stating this, and it wasn't mentioned in any of the many other interviews, it does make a lot of sense. However, we can't take this as an absolute 100% confirmation and will have to wait a few more days until the actual patch arrives. But for now it's safe to at least assume alts will be able to upgrade their (newly dropped) Mythic+ gear without having to re-do the long process of getting the Season 1 KSM achievement.
      Here a couple of reddit threads where the matter is being discussed:
      Will I have to earn ksm on an alt to upgrade my items to 220 during 9.0.5? Are the upcoming m+ valor upgrade achievements account wide? And big thanks to Thanks to SoulAwaken for the translation, so we don't have to address alts as "trumpets", as google translate refers to them.

      Blizzard / NetEase are reverting Hall of Fame / Cutting Edge Sire Denathrius kills and banning players that participated in real money boosting in the Chinese region.
      Yesterday, we reported about the Hall of Fame being tainted by boosts in the Chinese region. You can read the full article here.
      What happened is that the Alliance Mythic Hall of Fame has filled mostly thanks to real money trading, which is against the ToS, and so NetEase, who is in charge of WoW in the Chinese region, have sent quizzes about the Sire Denathrius fight to suspicious accounts, according to nemof.
      Here are some of the questions that they asked about the encounter:
      What causes the boss to phase? What is the number of cabalists in Phase 2? If there is a Blood Prince in Phase 3, and if so, how many? Placeholder for tweet 1367784617671991298 Placeholder for tweet 1367788267429457922 Apparently, some boosters have already been suspended.
