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.
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 Mythic+ and Castle Nathria unlock, those will be the best way of increasing your character's strength even further. It is a good idea to keep your eye out for world quests that give gear. There are some decent trinkets that are rewarded from completing world quests, such as Soulsifter Root.
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 isn't always worth to pick lower item level gear. If you would like a more in-depth look at our stats, please look at our dedicated page for it.

BiS Gear for Holy Paladins
The best possible gear constantly changes depending on how much of one stat you have. Because of this, it is very difficult to recommend exact pieces, and instead we will take a look at some of the best dungeon gear available to Holy Paladin. Until the first raid, Castle Nathria, releases, the best way to gear your character will come from running Heroic, Mythic, and Mythic+ dungeons. We will take a look at some of the best pieces available below. The items near the top of the list are generally the best, the items following the first are what you could use instead, but they are not as good. For these items we focus on getting as much Haste as possible.
