Last updated on Sep 24, 2023 at 12:00 by Sellin 26 comments

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


Choosing a Stat

Wrath of the Lich King requires fewer consumables and enchants than Classic or The Burning Crusade, but each of them is extremely important to maximizing your damage output and survivability 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 Intellect -> Critical Strike -> Mp5 -> Haste. You can find an explanation for this priority over on our Stats page.

Best Gems for Holy Paladin

Insightful Earthsiege Diamond Icon Insightful Earthsiege Diamond is by far the best option for your Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem, as it gives a considerable amount of Intellect and a proc that allows a chance to gain Mana on cast. As a Holy Paladin, Intellect is your largest priority so you may need to use a Enchanted Tear Icon Enchanted Tear to fulfil the Meta Socket Icon Meta Socket requirements.

Matching gem sockets in Wrath of the Lich King is usually the correct strategy as many socket bonuses are geared towards stats that you want whereas in The Burning Crusade their usefulness could vary. As a Holy Paladin, however, there is such a large emphasis on the value of Intellect we will oftentimes ignore bonuses that do not result in more Intellect. Keeping your Meta Gem Socket Icon Meta Gem activated is by far the most important rule when deciding what gems to use but below we will list what are likely to be the best gems for each socket type.


Best Consumables for Holy Paladin



Firecracker Salmon Icon Firecracker Salmon/Tender Shoveltusk Steak Icon Tender Shoveltusk Steak is a great choice for a personal consumable and will offer you Spell Power as well as Stamina, but more often than not in a group environment someone will have a Fish Feast which will more than suffice. Leveling your Cooking helps considerably in reducing the cost of these and, as a secondary profession, everyone can learn it with no limitations.


Flasks and Potions

Intellect continues to be our most highly-prioritized stat, making Flask of Distilled Wisdom Icon Flask of Distilled Wisdom our best flask.

Potion of Speed Icon Potion of Speed greatly increases your Haste for a short period and can allow you to pump out heals in a situation where you may be lacking the casting speed to otherwise keep up. Potion of Wild Magic Icon Potion of Wild Magic gives a considerable amount of Critical Strike rating allowing you to get out even stronger heals. Which of these you use will largely be personal preference and situational.
