Choosing your gear carefully is important for your Holy Paladin in PvP. We give you a stat priority to help you choose items with the right stats as well as guidance on how to pick up your best gear and your trinkets.

This page is part of our Holy Paladin PvP Guide.


Stat Priority for Holy Paladins in PvP

The stat priority for Holy Paladin in PvP is as follows:

  1. Intellect;
  2. Versatility;
  3. Mastery;
  4. Haste;
  5. Critical Strike.

Intellect is the best stat in all situations. Versatility is the next best stat as it will increase the damage/healing you do and reduce the damage you take. This is followed up with Master. Holy Paladin Mastery (Mastery: Lightbringer Icon Mastery: Lightbringer), when used with the Beacon of the Lightbringer Icon Beacon of the Lightbringer Talent, is crucial for Holy Paladins in PvP.


Gear Recommendations


General Guidelines

In general, Holy Paladins want to get trinkets that line up well with Avenging Crusader Icon Avenging Crusader or Avenging Wrath Icon Avenging Wrath. These trinkets can have a passive or on-use effect. The stats you want to be increasing are either Intellect or Versatility. You want to increase Versatility because it increases both your damage and healing. Intellect is great for increasing your overall healing output. Here is the best gear we recommend you use as a Holy Paladin.

  • Head: Zealous Pyreknight's Barbute Icon Zealous Pyreknight's Barbute
  • Neck: Verdant Gladiator's Amulet Icon Verdant Gladiator's Amulet
  • Shoulders: Zealous Pyreknight's Ailettes Icon Zealous Pyreknight's Ailettes

Tier Set

As noted above, acquiring both your 2-set and 4-set bonus is crucial. It is also important to note that ALL tier sets are nerfed by 50% in PvP. Although this nerf is significant, tier sets are still important to acquire to maximize your chances of winning. For Holy Paladins, this is your tier set:

  • Paladin Holy 10.1 Class Set 2pc Icon Paladin Holy 10.1 Class Set 2pc — When Glimmer of Light Icon Glimmer of Light dissipates or is refreshed, it creates a Holy Reverberation Icon Holy Reverberation on its target to heal an ally or damage an enemy over 8 seconds. Multiple Holy Reverberation may overlap, up to 6 times. This is great for increasing healing and damage output.
  • Paladin Holy 10.1 Class Set 4pc Icon Paladin Holy 10.1 Class Set 4pcDaybreak Icon Daybreak now increases Haste by 25% for 6 seconds, and its cooldown is reduced by 15 seconds.

Holy Paladin Embellishments

Embelishments are bonuses that can be put on crafted gear. These affects can have a drastic impact on the game. You are only allowed to have 2 Embellishments equipped at the same time. Here are the recommended Embellishments for Holy Paladins:

  • Blue Silken Lining Icon Blue Silken Lining. This embellishment gives you additional Mastery when you are above 90% health. This is a valuable effect to have and should be crafted on your Ring.
  • Infurious Warboots of Impunity Icon Infurious Warboots of Impunity. These Embellishment Boots give you a primary stat increase when you successfully interrupt, crowd control, or dispel an enemy.

Holy Paladin Gems and Enchants

Here are the best enchants for a Holy Paladin:

  • Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed Icon Enchant Cloak - Homebound Speed
  • Chest: Enchant Chest - Reserve of Intellect Icon Enchant Chest - Reserve of Intellect
  • Bracers: Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed Icon Enchant Bracer - Devotion of Speed
