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

The best trinkets you can obtain will be a very high item-level version of Gilded Loa Figurine Icon Gilded Loa Figurine, Dinobone Charm Icon Dinobone Charm, Incessantly Ticking Clock Icon Incessantly Ticking Clock, Emblem of Zandalar Icon Emblem of Zandalar, Drust-Runed Icicle Icon Drust-Runed Icicle, or Twitching Tentacle of Xalzaix Icon Twitching Tentacle of Xalzaix. Use one of these, unless you have a trinket ten or more item levels higher 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.
