Level: 80

Leveling Talent Tree & Build

Your first talent unlocks at Level 10.

  1. Levels 10 to 14 — 5 points in Seals of the Pure IconSeals of the Pure
  2. Levels 15 to 19 — 5 points in Divine Intellect IconDivine Intellect

Divine Intellect IconDivine Intellect increases your Intellect by a scaling percentage per point, topping out at 10%. This vastly increases your Mana pool, letting you fight for longer and lessen downtime between mobs. Seals of the Pure IconSeals of the Pure increases the damage done by both your Seal of Righteousness IconSeal of Righteousness attacks, as well as when you unleash it with your Judgement IconJudgement ability. Seal of Righteousness will be the seal you use primarily while leveling either in a group or solo.

  1. Levels 20 to 22 — 3 points in Healing Light IconHealing Light
  2. Levels 23 to 24 — 2 points in Improved Lay on Hands IconImproved Lay on Hands
  3. Levels 25 to 29 — 5 points in Illumination IconIllumination

Healing Light IconHealing Light is a flat healing increase to your Holy Light IconHoly Light and Flash of Light IconFlash of Light, which will make up almost all of your healing. Improved Lay on Hands IconImproved Lay on Hands drastically reduces the cooldown of Lay on Hands IconLay on Hands, which is a powerful cooldown that you can both use reactively or in a time-sensitive situation where you are running low on Mana but need healing. Illumination IconIllumination gives a chance for critical heals to return 60% their Mana cost. At max rank, with 5 points, it is a 100% chance to return Mana when your healing spells crit.

  1. Level 30 — 1 point in Divine Favor IconDivine Favor
  2. Levels 31 to 32 — 2 points in Improved Blessing of Wisdom IconImproved Blessing of Wisdom
  3. Levels 33 to 34 — 2 points in Sanctified Light IconSanctified Light
  4. Levels 35 to 39 — 5 points in Holy Power IconHoly Power

Divine Favor IconDivine Favor, when active, will make your next Holy Light IconHoly Light or Flash of Light IconFlash of Light crit. This synergizes extremely well with the previous talent, Illumination IconIllumination. Improved Blessing of Wisdom IconImproved Blessing of Wisdom increases the Mp5 you gain from the Blessing of Wisdom IconBlessing of Wisdom buff. This is both extremely beneficial to you as it will lower your downtime between mobs and make it so you can participate longer in fights, but if you are leveling with any other Mana users, it will have the same benefits for them. Sanctified Light IconSanctified Light increases your crit chance with Holy Light. Holy Power IconHoly Power increases your crit chance with all Holy abilities.

  1. Level 40 — 1 point in Holy Shock IconHoly Shock
  2. Level 41 to 43 — 3 points in Light's Grace IconLight's Grace
  3. Level 44 — 1 point in Sanctified Light IconSanctified Light
  4. Level 45 to 49 — 5 points in Holy Guidance IconHoly Guidance

Holy Shock IconHoly Shock is an extremely powerful heal or damaging spell, depending on if you are targeting a friendly or hostile unit. It does considerable healing and damage and has a relatively short cooldown, but costs quite a bit of Mana, so using it on cooldown is not recommended. Light's Grace IconLight's Grace causes your Holy Light to grant you a buff reducing the cast speed of your next Holy Light. Holy Guidance IconHoly Guidance increases your spell damage and healing by a percentage of your total Intellect, making both your damaging abilities and your heals more potent.

  1. Level 50 — 1 point in Divine Illumination IconDivine Illumination
  2. Levels 51 to 55 — 5 points in Judgements of the Pure IconJudgements of the Pure
  3. Levels 56 to 57 — 2 points in Enlightened Judgements IconEnlightened Judgements
  4. Levels 57 to 59 — 2 points in Infusion of Light IconInfusion of Light

Divine Illumination IconDivine Illumination is a strong cooldown that greatly reduces the Mana costs of all of your spells. Judgements of the Pure IconJudgements of the Pure greatly increases the damage dealt by your seals and judgement abilities, while Enlightened Judgements IconEnlightened Judgements gives us considerably more Hit rating.

  1. Level 60 — 1 point in Beacon of Light IconBeacon of Light
  2. Levels 61 to 65 — 5 points in Divine Strength IconDivine Strength
  3. Level 66 to 67 — — 2 points in Guardian's Favor IconGuardian's Favor

  1. Level 71 to 75 — 5 points in Toughness IconToughness
  2. Levels 76 to 78 — 3 points in Improved Righteous Fury IconImproved Righteous Fury
  3. Level 79 to 80 — — 2 points in Improved Hammer of Justice IconImproved Hammer of Justice
