General Information

Welcome to our Holy Paladin healing guide for World of Warcraft Legion 7.3.5. Here, you will learn everything you need to know about playing a Holy Paladin in a raid environment and in Mythic+ dungeons.

About Our Reviewer

This guide has been reviewed and approved by Rhyno, a Holy Paladin moderator from the Hammer of Wrath Discord channel and a member of the Convert to Raid superguild on Aerie Peak-US.

1. Class Overview

Holy Paladins specialise in tank and single-target healing, with this being their primary role. They possess several tools that help them mitigate or avoid damage, both on themselves and on other raid members.

Holy Paladins lack mobility, but in general they are viable in raids and dungeons.

In order to properly play a healing role, you will need more than just class-specific information. To better understand healing in general, we recommend that you read our healing guide.

  • No notable Patch 7.3 changes.

3. Patch 7.2.5 Changes for Holy Paladins
