On this page, we list the best enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Holy Paladin in TBC Classic for PvE content.

1.

Choosing a Stat

The Burning Crusade requires fewer consumables and enchants than Classic, but each of them is extremely important to maximizing your damage out put in any situation, but especially in Raids and dungeons. Below will be a list of the optimal consumables and enchants to help you get the most out of your Paladin.

The advice given on this page uses the stat priority of Healing Power > MP5/Spell Crit > Intellect > Spell Haste. You can find an explanation for this priority over on our Stats page.

Best Gems for Holy Paladins

Insightful Earthstorm Diamond Icon Insightful Earthstorm Diamond is by far the best option for your Meta gem, as it increases your total Mana pool, grants some Spell Power from the talent Holy Guidance IconHoly Guidance and gives you a chance to restore Mana on each spell cast.

Matching gem sockets is a lot more important for Holy, as the free additional stats often outweigh having more of one specific stat, as most healer stats are relatively similar in priority.

  • In red sockets, you will use Teardrop Crimson Spinel Icon Teardrop Crimson Spinel or Teardrop Living Ruby Icon Teardrop Living Ruby.
  • In yellow sockets, you will use Luminous Pyrestone Icon Luminous Pyrestone or Luminous Noble Topaz Icon Luminous Noble Topaz.
  • In blue sockets, you will use Royal Shadowsong Amethyst Icon Royal Shadowsong Amethyst or Royal Nightseye Icon Royal Nightseye.

Best Consumables for Holy Paladin

4.1.

Food

Golden Fish Sticks Icon Golden Fish Sticks is the default choice as it is the largest bonus healing increase you can get from a well-fed buff. Leveling your Cooking helps considerably in reducing the cost of these and, as a secondary profession, everyone can learn it with no limitations.

4.2.

Flasks and Potions

Holy Paladins are unique in how much they value Intellect as they gain +Healing from it, in addition to the benefits it already offers, making Flask of Distilled Wisdom Icon Flask of Distilled Wisdom your best option. It grants almost all of the beneficial healing stats to Holy.

Super Mana Potion Icon Super Mana Potions are extremely important as a buffer in high damage situations, where you are required to spend more Mana quickly and your downtime to regenerate is limited.

4.3.

Other Consumables

Demonic Rune Icon Demonic Runes and Dark Rune Icon Dark Runes both grant Mana in exchange for health. The Mana you gain from these items will allow you to put out healing that far outweighs the damage you take. Using these allows you to double-dip on the Mana gain from these items, as well as the healing you will receive granting you Mana from Spiritual Attunement IconSpiritual Attunement.

Any Scrolls of Strength/Agility/Intellect are just an added benefit.

Superior Wizard Oil Icon Superior Wizard Oil is going to be your best choice for a weapon enhancement.
