Last updated on Aug 06, 2020 at 10:48 by Impakt 10 comments

On this page, you will find the best PvE gear and best in slot items for your Holy Paladin Healer in WoW Classic.

1.

Gearing Strategy for Holy Paladins

While a clear best in slot (BiS) list is always available in WoW Classic, the items contained might be extremely hard or expensive to get. Thus, we will try to give at least one alternative, for most slots in the list, so that you can pick where and how to farm them.

2.

WoW Classic Phases

As stated by Blizzard, WoW Classic will have six phases, starting with Molten Core, Onyxia's Lair, and Maraudon, and ending with Naxxramas and the Scourge Invasion.

We will be linking best in slot gear lists for every raid tier in this guide, which can be helpful in order to understand how to progress from hitting Level 60, to getting pre-raid best in slot and from then to clearing all raid tiers.

Holy Paladin Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Phase 5 (Ahn'Qiraj)

This is the gear we recommend for Holy Paladins in the AQ40 patch.

While DPS have a plethora of new gear options available to them in AQ 40, healers sadly are not as fortunate. While you do have some new upgrades available, most of your upgrades will come from C'Thun or Viscidus, which means you will be not only heavily competing for upgrades, but will potentially need to wait a long time until your guild can reach those bosses, particularly C'thun. Do not get too sad however, it will be your turn for a full new shiny set of gear in Naxxramas, so you will just have to be patient for now.

Holy Paladin PvP Best in Slot Gear

You can find our recommended gear for PvPing as a Holy Paladin in the link below.

6.

Fire Resistance Gear for Holy Paladins

While not a massive concern for Paladins, a little bit of Fire Resistance can sometimes be helpful. Read this guide to figure out where and which pieces to wear!

7.

Nature Resistance Gear for Holy Paladins

This is not a normal set that you would ever wear, but is required for some classes in AQ 40 when fighting Princess Huhuran. It will be up to your guild or raid group if this is a required set or not.

8.

Holy Paladin Weapons

Since weapons are such a broad topic, we have written a full guide about Paladin weapons.

9.

Special gear for Holy Paladins

Some items, which are not powerful enough to be in the best in slot list, have special properties that make them very valuable to acquire for specific encounters or as a weapon swap mid-fight. We will list the most notable special items for the current phase, and their effects and application below.

  • Gnomish Battle Chicken Icon Gnomish Battle Chicken summons a chicken that attacks your enemies for 1.5 minutes, with a cooldown of 30 minutes. The chicken scales with your Engineering skill (Level 60 at 300 skill), and buffs your group with 5% increased Attack Speed through Battle Squawk. This is what makes it well worth using while grouped.
  • Arcanite Dragonling Icon Arcanite Dragonling summons a dragon that attacks your enemies for up to 1 minute, with a cooldown of one hour. The dragon scales with your Engineering skill (Level 60 at 300 skill) and causes a stacking debuff that increases Fire damage taken, which makes it worth using in later raids to boost Fire Mage damage.
  • Skull of Impending Doom Icon Skull of Impending Doom is given as a quest reward from completing Forbidden Knowledge in the Badlands. While generally undesirable, if you need to run somewhere fast, it can be a useful item to have.
  • Furbolg Medicine Pouch Icon Furbolg Medicine Pouch is sold by Gorn One Eye when you reach Honored status with Timbermaw Hold. This is a great item that you can swap during combat to provide you with a significant 1000 heal over 10 seconds. For comparison's sake, Heavy Runecloth Bandage Icon Heavy Runecloth Bandage heals you for 2000 over 8 seconds, but requires you to channel it, and you cannot take any sort of damage in the channel duration.
  • Tidal Charm Icon Tidal Charm allows you to instantly stun an enemy for 3 seconds. It has a 50% drop chance from Prince Nazjak, who spawns around 25,84 in Arathi Highlands. Due to his very high respawn timer it might be hard to get this trinket, but the stun it provides is a life saver and duel winner.
  • Linken's Boomerang Icon Linken's Boomerang allows you to potentially disarm or stun an enemy when used, which makes it useful in certain scenarios, especially in PvP. Its rewarded from the Un'Goro Crater quest It's Dangerous to Go Alone.
  • Luffa Icon Luffa removes a bleed effect, such as Garrote Icon Garrote, from yourself when used. You get this item from the Searing Gorge quest Incendosaurs? Whateverosaur is More Like It.
  • The Alliance-only Crystal of Zin-Malor Icon Crystal of Zin-Malor allows you to kill yourself easily, and you do not get durability loss if you die from its effect. This can occasionally be useful, such as when you regret getting on a fly path after you are already flying or if you need to talk with the Blackrock Depths key ghost NPC. You get it from starting the quest Tormented By the Past.

Holy Paladin Pre-Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List

In order to get ready for raiding, it is recommended that you follow this guide in order to learn which gear to gather for maximizing HPS before ever setting foot in raids, and probably also before getting your first epic loot. Even so, expect to get a few pieces that you will have a hard time replacing, such as Second Wind Icon Second Wind and Briarwood Reed Icon Briarwood Reed.

10.2.

Holy Paladin Raid Best in Slot (BiS) List for Molten Core / Onyxia's Lair

Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair are the first raids in WoW Classic, and will probably award you with your first pieces of epic gear! While the tier set is not great, there are many pieces of gear and weapons that you will be using for multiple phases out of Molten Core.
