General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Holy Paladin in World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.2.5.

If you were looking for TBC Classic content, please refer to our TBC Classic Holy Paladin gear and best in slot.


Gearing a Holy Paladin

Welcome to our Gearing Page for Holy Paladin, this section will cover everything you need to know about equipping your character correctly.

If you have a new piece of gear that you need gems and enchants advice for, you can find everything you need on our dedicated page below.


BiS Gearing in Shadowlands

Once you reach max level in Shadowlands, you will have a variety of different ways you can go about acquiring gear to increase your character's power. World quests and Covenant quests will both provide you with decent starting gear once you reach max level.

After that, you will want to start trying to run Normal, Heroic, and even Mythic dungeons for the gear they offer. Once you are geared enough, you can begin running Mythic+ and Sepulcher of the First Ones for the highest item level gear.


Simulating Gear

Many wonderful resources are available to Holy Paladin that will allow you to quickly and easily simulate your character to find the best combinations of gear, what item to pick from your weekly Great Vault, and even what type of content you can do to get the biggest gear upgrades. Please visit our simulations page below to find links to these resources.



Many people have a tendency to overthink the distribution of their secondary stats. In most cases, equipping a lower item level piece because it has better secondary stats will result in a very minor change in output. Because of this, it is not always worth to pick lower item level gear. That being said, having a piece of gear with Leech and worse stats or lower item level will likely be better. In these situations, you should compare the gear by visiting our simulation page above. If you would like a more in-depth look at our stats, please look at our dedicated page for it.


Best Domination Sockets for Holy Paladin

In Patch 9.1, Domination Shards and Sockets were added to the game. You were able to use these gems for both raiding and mythic+ for significant bonuses. In Season 4, these gems will not work even when in Sanctum of Domination. You will want to stick to using your tier set.


Trinkets for Holy Paladins

Your best trinket will depend primarily on the item levels of what you are deciding between. Regardless, below you can find the very best trinkets available to Holy Paladin. You will want to aim to get at least 2 of these.

It should be noted that the Resonant Reservoir Icon Resonant Reservoir trinket from Sepulcher of the First Ones is the best Mythic+ trinket available and would be considered S tier.

B Tier



In Shadowlands, Legendaries are back and will allow us to replace one of our items with a piece that provides a powerful bonus. If you are interested in learning more about the Legendaries available to Holy Paladin, as well as the Legendary system in general, please view our dedicated pages for it below:


Best PvP (BiS) Gear for Holy Paladins in Shadowlands

PvP gear has been revamped in Shadowlands: you buy it from the PvP vendor in Oribos and it will always have Versatility as one of its two stats. You can buy blue quality gear from one of the vendors for Honor. The higher item level gear is bought with Conquest which will take longer to acquire, but obviously has the added benefit of providing better gear. Once you purchase a piece of gear with Conquest, you can use Honor to then upgrade it to a maximum item level that depends on your PvP rating.

Whether or not PvP is your preferred form of content, it is one of the best ways to gear your character and improve your item level. While not every piece of PvP gear will have your desired stats, it is very easy to target weak gear slots and replace them with the PvP gear. This will help remove some of the RNG of trying to get a higher item level piece in a specific slot since you can just purchase a PvP item in that slot.


Best in Slot List for Holy Paladins (Dungeon Gear Only)

Recommended below are the best dungeon items in Shadowlands. Keep in mind that item level will generally be better than any minor stat differences. You can also mix and match pieces of this list with that of the raid list from the next section of the guide.

With the reintroduction of Valor in Patch 9.0.5, you are able to upgrade items obtained through Mythic+ dungeons. In general, you will want to upgrade trinkets first as every other slot can be obtained in other forms of content such as raiding or PvP. Given that you can only get high item level trinkets from your weekly chest or through upgrading, you will want to focus your efforts there.

Best in Slot List for Holy Paladins in Season 4

Below are the recommended items available from the 3 Fated raids in Season 4. Every week, one of the 3 raids will drop loot at higher item levels. Do not forget that in many cases the actual BiS gear will change depending on how much of any stat you have and whether an item has a socket or Leech. The best way to figure out what item to actually equip will be visiting the QuestionablyEpic website.

During Season 4, you will also have access to Puzzling Cartel Dinar Icon Puzzling Cartel Dinar which you can spend at Vendors on specific raid gear. The three pieces you will want to target are: Shadowed Orb of Torment Icon Shadowed Orb of Torment, Cabalist's Hymnal Icon Cabalist's Hymnal, and finally a main hand weapon to provide a large Intellect boost. If you have a large focus in Mythic+, you should consider instead buying Resonant Reservoir Icon Resonant Reservoir.
