Stats Explained for Holy Paladin


Healing Power

Healing Power is your most important stat as a Holy Paladin. The more bonus healing you have, the stronger your healing abilities will be. This both helps with healing larger amounts of damage faster, but also allows for you to use lesser ranks of abilities, in order to be more Mana efficient.



Mp5 (Mana Per 5 seconds) is Paladin's primary form of Mana regeneration. The more Mp5 you have, the more you will be able to use your max rank abilities.


Spell Crit

Spell critical hits heal for 150% of what a normal cast would. The more spell crit rating you have, the more likely this is to occur, so this is basically free healing. It can, however, also lead to overhealing, which does nothing.



Intellect increases the size of your Mana pool, increases your spell crit chance, and, thanks to the talent Holy Guidance IconHoly Guidance, grants spell damage and healing by 35% of your total intellect. Intellect is an extremely powerful stat for Holy Paladins and fortunately you will not often have to choose between Intellect and the other stats listed here, as it is a primary stat.


Spell Haste

Spell Haste makes your spell casts faster, allowing you to do more healing in a shorter time span. The quicker cast speed can be extremely beneficial in high damage situations, but it will also make you drain your Mana even faster.
