WotLK Classic Holy Paladin Spec, Builds, Talents, and Glyphs
On this page, you will find out the best PvE talent choices and builds for your Holy Paladin in WotLK Classic, as well as advised glyphs.
Talent Builds for Holy Paladin
If you were looking for a leveling-oriented build, please refer to our Paladin leveling guide.
Holy Paladin has several talent points that are up to personal preference and can be changed around to better fit your group or personal playstyle. In the build listed above two points are put into Improved Devotion Aura in order to increase healing done by those in range of your Auras but those point can be moved to various other place like Purifying Power or Blessed Hands.
Important Holy Paladin Talents
The Holy tree of Paladin talents focuses almost exclusively on healing-oriented improvements to your character but has some strong tools to increase your survivability as well.
Improved Lay on Hands does a massive heal and reduces Physical damage taken depending on how many points you have in this talent. This buff helps mitigate a ton of damage against any Physical-damage-heavy encounter.
Illumination refunds 30% of the Mana cost of your Flash of Light, Holy Light, and Holy Shock if you crit. This vastly increases the amount of incoming Mana you will receive in a fight and there are many talents that synergize extremely well with this.
Light's Grace reduces the cast speed of your Holy Light by 0.5 seconds when the buff is active. This bonus cast speed can help greatly in a situation where you are required to be doing the maximum healing you can output.
Holy Shock is an instant cast heal or damaging spell that is extremely potent. Holy Shock is not a spell you use on cooldown because of how much Mana it costs, but it is a great tool for an emergency where you do not have time to cast or are moving and cannot stop to cast.
Holy Guidance grants 20% of your total Intellect as Spell Power. This drastically increases the value of Intellect for Holy Paladins, as it now directly increases the amount healed by each spell, in addition to already increasing the Mana pool and Spell Crit chance.
Glyph of Lay on Hands reduces the cooldown of one of your strongest cooldowns.
