Last updated on May 07, 2024 at 11:20 by Mysticall 12 comments

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: Heartfire Sentinel's Forgehelm Icon Heartfire Sentinel's Forgehelm
  • Neck: Draconic Gladiator's Amulet Icon Draconic Gladiator's Amulet
  • Shoulders: Heartfire Sentinel's Steelwings Icon Heartfire Sentinel's Steelwings
  • Cloak: Hellbloom Cape Icon Hellbloom Cape
  • Chest: Heartfire Sentinel's Brigandine Icon Heartfire Sentinel's Brigandine
  • Wrists: Hellbloom Bracers Icon Hellbloom Bracers
  • Hands: Heartfire Sentinel's Protectors Icon Heartfire Sentinel's Protectors
  • Waist: Draconic Gladiator's Plate Girdle Icon Draconic Gladiator's Plate Girdle
  • Legs: Heartfire Sentinel's Faulds Icon Heartfire Sentinel's Faulds
  • Feet: Infurious Warboots of Impunity Icon Infurious Warboots of Impunity
  • Ring 1: Signet of Titanic Insight Icon Signet of Titanic Insight - With Critical Strike and Mastery
  • Ring 2: Ring-Bound Hourglass Icon Ring-Bound Hourglass - With Versatility and Mastery
  • Trinket 1: Draconic Gladiator's Medallion Icon Draconic Gladiator's Medallion
  • Trinket 2: Draconic Gladiator's Emblem Icon Draconic Gladiator's Emblem
  • Weapon: Draconic Gladiator's Scepter Icon Draconic Gladiator's Scepter
  • Off-hand: Draconic Gladiator's Bulwark Icon Draconic Gladiator's Bulwark

Note: It is essential to be wearing 2 PvP trinkets. This will give you a Stamina and stat boost that will increase your survivability.


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:

  • 2-set: Holy Shock Icon Holy Shock's critical strikes heal for 80% more and reduce the cooldown of Light's Hammer Icon Light's Hammer by 2 sec. or Holy Prism Icon Holy Prism by 1.0 sec.
  • 4-set: Light's Hammer Icon Light's Hammer heals 100% more frequently and generates 1 Holy Power every 4 sec. Holy Prism Icon Holy Prism's healing is increased by 40% and it generates 1 Holy Power if cast on an enemy target, or 3 if cast on an ally.

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
  • Belt: Shadowed Belt Clasp Icon Shadowed Belt Clasp
  • Legs: Temporal Spellthread Icon Temporal Spellthread
