General Information

On this page, you will find the best gear and best in slot items for your Holy Paladin in World of Warcraft Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.2.5.


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.


Trinkets for Holy Paladins

If you are an Alchemist, Ascended Alchemist Stone Icon Ascended Alchemist Stone is a very good option and easily accessible. For Mythic plus and Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader, it is considered as one of the strongest trinkets.

If you are not an Alchemist, the best trinkets you can easily obtain for an Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light build will be trinkets from The Eternal Palace. The following three of them are essentially equal:

The best Mythic+ trinkets are Ignition Mage's Fuse Icon Ignition Mage's Fuse and Conch of Dark Whispers Icon Conch of Dark Whispers. It should be noted that these are generally inferior to the raid trinkets.

From world content, the Pocket-Sized Computation Device Icon Pocket-Sized Computation Device is a very strong option with the right cards.

The only healer trinket from Crucible of Storms, Void Stone Icon Void Stone, could have some niche uses, but also absorbs healing on the target; due to this, it is likely to find more use in Mythic+ than in raid settings.

From World quests and emissaries there are several useful trinkets, like Gilded Loa Figurine Icon Gilded Loa Figurine, Dinobone Charm Icon Dinobone Charm, Emblem of Zandalar Icon Emblem of Zandalar, and especially Sea Giant's Tidestone Icon Sea Giant's Tidestone. The drawback to these trinkets is their lower starting item level compared to the raid trinkets.


On-Use Trinkets and Glimmer Build

With the introduction of Glimmer in Patch 8.1, there was a significant rise in the usage of on-use trinkets with a 2 minute cooldown, such as Ignition Mage's Fuse Icon Ignition Mage's Fuse and Dread Gladiator's Medallion Icon Dread Gladiator's Medallion.


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, world bosses, and raids. Since the Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader and Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light builds have significantly different priorities, we will list them separately.


Glimmer of Light Azerite Pieces

The highest priority for all of these is that they have Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light. You should not consider an Azerite piece of gear that does not have this trait unless it is a huge (30+ item level) upgrade.


Azerite Helms


Azerite Shoulders


Azerite Chests


Avenging Crusader Azerite Pieces
