Holy Paladin Healer Season of Mastery Phase 1/2 Gear

Last updated on Dec 17, 2021 at 07:48 by Wrdlbrmpft 1 comment

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair for your Holy Paladin in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid gearing advice, please refer to our Holy Paladin Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide for the Season of Mastery.


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

This is the gear we recommend you to chase while doing the first raids in the game: Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair. If you are instead progressing through Tier 2 / Blackwing Lair, Tier 2.5 / AQ40, or Tier 3 / Naxxramas, see our updated lists for later phases instead.

Paladin's Tier 1, Lawbringer Armor is a poorly designed set that provides some stats for every role instead of providing adequate stats for a single role, making it not great for Holy Paladins. Instead, most of your BiS setup in this phase will come from off pieces from Molten Core, or even just dungeon gear in some slots. Make sure when looking for upgrades that you consider cloth and leather pieces as well as plate, since you do not lose anything other than some armor from using different armor types.

The list below contains gear from: raids, epic PvP sets (above rank 11) and world bosses, as well as some gear from dungeons and quests, when warranted.

Other Best in Slot Lists

As this list is meant to be used for Holy Paladins in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery, we have created separate gear lists for those interested in optimizing themselves for the "main" branch of Classic instead. If you are not playing in the Season of Mastery, it is recommended that you consult this gear hub instead.

In addition, because Molten Core and Onyxia's Lair may require the use of additional Fire Resistance, we have a separate guide below to optimize your gear for this stat if necessary.
