On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Holy Paladin in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.

1. Best Gems for Holy Paladins

You should use Deadly Amberblaze Icon Deadly Amberblaze (or the cheaper Deadly Solstone Icon Deadly Solstone) in all sockets if using a standard Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader build. If using a Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light build, you should use Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all sockets.

At lower gear levels (below 400 item level), a Kraken's Eye of Intellect Icon Kraken's Eye of Intellect is often superior to either of the secondary stat gems.

2. Best Enchants for Holy Paladins

Slot Enchantment

The enchants you choose will depend on your build of choice. Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader builds will favor Critical Strike on both rings and weapons (Deadly Navigation), while a Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light setup will prefer Haste (Quick Navigation) instead. Enchant Weapon - Coastal Surge Icon Enchant Weapon - Coastal Surge is listed because it is a viable option in cases where overhealing is low.

3. Consumables for Holy Paladins

3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Holy

Flask of Endless Fathoms Icon Flask of Endless Fathoms should be used for raids along with Battle Potion of Intellect Icon Battle Potion of Intellect and Potion of Replenishment Icon Potion of Replenishment (or Coastal Mana Potion Icon Coastal Mana Potion if you cannot drink safely) as your potions of choice. If you wish to DPS at the start of the fight, you can pre-pot with Potion of Bursting Blood Icon Potion of Bursting Blood instead.

Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion can be used in addition to Healthstones as an emergency heal.

3.2. Best Food for Holy

For the Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader build, you should eat from the Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon Bountiful Captain's Feast (or the cheaper Galley Banquet Icon Galley Banquet) when possible, and otherwise use Critical Strike food (Honey-Glazed Haunches Icon Honey-Glazed Haunches or the cheaper Kul Tiramisu Icon Kul Tiramisu).

For the Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light build, you should eat Swamp Fish 'n Chips Icon Swamp Fish 'n Chips or the cheaper Ravenberry Tarts Icon Ravenberry Tarts.

3.3. Augment Runes for Holy

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
