Your talent build as an Holy Priest is fairly set in stone, as some of the most powerful talents in the Holy tree are found towards the bottom such as Spirit of Redemption Icon Spirit of Redemption, Spiritual Guidance Icon Spiritual Guidance, and Spiritual Healing Icon Spiritual Healing.

Penance Icon Penance and Circle of Healing Icon Circle of Healing are both incredibly strong heals that fit two very different, but equally frequent situations. Penance Icon Penance is an incredibly strong single target heal but in order to reach its value you must be in a situation where you can channel it fully. Circle of Healing Icon Circle of Healing is an incredibly strong instant cast, multi-target heal but due to the mana cost it can be difficult to use. If you have the ability to stand and cast freely Penance Icon Penance is usually the best option, in a situation where you are constantly moving and need sudden bursts of group healing Circle of Healing Icon Circle of Healing is the better choice.

Prayer of Mending Icon Prayer of Mending is the near default in the Pant slot due to how much healing it does and its ability to act as a smart heal. While there are no other options found in this slot for healing Homunculi Icon Homunculi is a great alternative if you find yourself not needing the healing provided from Prayer of Mending Icon Prayer of Mending. Homunculi Icon Homunculi deal a considerable amount of damage in addition to providing debuffs that reduce the targets Attack Power, Armor and Attack speed.

Both Serendipity Icon Serendipity and Strength of Soul Icon Strength of Soul are great choices with niche uses, Serendipity Icon Serendipity is the default as it is generally more useful as the reduced healing time on your primary healing abilities is almost always strong though you will not often be casting Flash Heal Icon Flash Heal to generate the stacks. Strength of Soul Icon Strength of Soul is another great option in a situation where you are consistently casting Power Word: Shield Icon Power Word: Shield on a target to mitigate incoming damage.

Empowered Renew Icon Empowered Renew can act as an emergency heal as it heals immediately. This rune also already bolsters the powerful healing-over-time effect of Renew Icon Renew while allowing multiple priests to have Renew Icon Renew active at the same time. Renewed Hope Icon Renewed Hope can also be situationally useful but synergizes poorly if you find yourself using Strength of Soul Icon Strength of Soul.

Spirit of the Redeemer Icon Spirit of the Redeemer is only really able to be used by a Holy Priest due to the deep talent point requirement in order to obtain Spirit of Redemption Icon Spirit of Redemption. This talent is incredibly powerful as it removes all mana costs for 10 seconds and allows you to cast without risk of taking damage or being targeted. While this is our default option as a Holy Priest consider Pain Suppression Icon Pain Suppression in a situation where a target is going to take a massive amount of incoming damage and may not otherwise survive.

More engravings are likely to come out as we reach higher level caps so make sure to checkout our general Runes guide to get a better understanding of what all tools you have available to your Priest.

Notable Holy Priest Talents

Inspiration Icon Inspiration increases the targets armor for 15 seconds after being critically healed by Flash Heal Icon Flash Heal, Heal Icon Heal, Greater Heal Icon Greater Heal or Prayer of Healing Icon Prayer of Healing. The buff applied is incredibly strong especially on Tanks as it greatly reduces the amount of incoming physical damage thanks to the temporary additional armor.

Spirit of Redemption Icon Spirit of Redemption made even stronger when paired with the Spirit of the Redeemer Icon Spirit of the Redeemer rune this talent allows you to take the form of a Spirit Healer removing the mana cost of your abilities and allowing you to heal completely uninterrupted for 10 seconds.

Spiritual Guidance Icon Spiritual Guidance increases your Spell Damage and Healing by 5% of your total spirit, greatly increasing the value of your Spirit stat by turning it into a throughput stat in addition to its regeneration benefits.

Spiritual Healing Icon Spiritual Healing increases the amount healed by your healing spells by 2% per rank, while this is an extremely simple talent a flat increase on your healing, totalling in 10% at its max rank is a massive benefit.
