Protection Paladin Tank Season of Mastery Phase 6 Gear

Last updated on Jul 22, 2022 at 17:33 by Wrdlbrmpft 1 comment

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items from Tier 3 / Naxxramas for your Protection Paladin in WoW Classic's Season of Mastery. For pre-raid BiS, please refer to our Protection Paladin Pre-Raid Gearing and Best in Slot guide for the Season of Mastery.

1.

Protection Paladin Season of Mastery Best in Slot (BiS) List for Naxxramas

This is the gear we recommend to chase while doing the new raid in the game: Naxxramas.

Paladin's Tier 1, Lawbringer Armor and Tier 2, Judgement Armor, are not entirely designed for Tank Paladins, but the spell damage can give a nice threat boost for some fights, mostly for AOE tanking. Most of your 'tanky' BiS setup in this phase will come from off pieces from Ahn'Qiraj, Blackwing Lair, Molten Core, or even just dungeon gear in some slots. In Ahn'Qiraj, there is a huge variety of possible Protection Paladin gear available which many Warriors besides the main tanks will probably not use. The more offensive items in the list are considered to be a threat boost and are usable if needed.

2.

Naxxramas Protection Paladin BiS

This is the gear we recommend for Protection Paladins in the Naxxramas patch. Naxxramas is the final destination of the original World of Warcraft, and as such carries the best gear and the most difficult bosses.

Paladins Tier 3, Redemption Armor is perhaps one of the most iconic Paladin sets of all time, but is unfortunately very poor for Protection Paladins. You will not be using any of the T3 pieces in your BiS set.

Other Best in Slot Lists

As this list is meant to be used for Protection 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 case you still need them, we have also included links to other phases of our Season of Mastery gear lists.

In addition, because Blackwing Lair, 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.
