About Our Author

This guide has been written by Holy Paladin Theorycrafter Adamselene. He currently raids with War Front of Kel'Thuzad-US. You can find him on the Hammer of Wrath class Discord and the most up to date version of “The Light and How to Swing It” — the spreadsheet he maintains with Rhyno — can be found here.

1. Best in Slot List for Holy Paladins

While we do not currently believe a Best in Slot list is worth adding because the nature of the titanforging mechanic makes it impossible, it is worth noting the stronger trinkets and Azerite armor pieces, so that you can try to obtain them at a high item level.

2. Trinkets for Holy Paladins

By far the best trinket currently available at any item level is the Drust-Runed Icicle Icon Drust-Runed Icicle. The Intellect proc rate of the Drust-Runed Icicle makes it strong, regardless of item level.

If you cannot obtain a Drust-Runed Icicle Icon Drust-Runed Icicle, then there is a large list of trinkets that are equally balanced. You should use your highest item level trinkets of any from the list below:

Any trinket not mentioned should be avoided, unless its item level is significantly higher (30+ more) than any of the trinkets listed above.

3. Azerite Gear for Holy Paladins

As Azerite gear comes with set traits, we can identify the best Azerite gear for a given item level. Item level differences may still make pieces with inferior Azerite trait combinations better overall, but the ones below have the best Azerite trait combinations from dungeons, world quests, and world bosses.

3.1. Azerite Helms

3.2. Azerite Shoulders

3.3. Azerite Chests

4. Comparing Azerite Pieces

If you are unsure whether a piece of Azerite armor is an upgrade for you, the Holy Paladin spreadsheet The Light and How to Swing It has a tab that will allow you to compare them directly for your character.
