Welcome to our Holy Paladin Healer guide for WoW Classic - Season of Discovery, tailored for PvE content. Here, you will learn how to play the Paladin class as a Holy Paladin Healer. Click the links below to navigate the guide or read this page for a short introduction.



Holy Paladin is widely regarded as the best single target healer in all of World of Warcraft Classic. With the addition of the many tools added in Season of Discovery, they have become even more powerful. While not only being an incredible healer, Holy Paladin offers some of the games most powerful buffs and life-saving cooldowns in the form of their unique Blessings. Abilities such as Blessing of Protection Icon Blessing of Protection can be used to immediately stop physical damage on an ally close to death or even just allow them to play more dangerously while the buff is active. Paladin is also the tankiest of all healers naturally and has the ability to spend talent points to become even beefier should you find yourself in a situation where you are constantly taking damage, or facing other players.

Holy Paladin is one of the most highly sought-after healers due to their massive contributions to groups in the form of their incredible healing and powerful Blessings and Auras. Should you decide to play a Holy Paladin you will have absolutely no issue finding groups for all kinds of content, but especially Dungeons, Raids and Battlegrounds.
