Holy Priest PvP Best Arena Compositions (Shadowlands / Patch 9.2.5)

Last updated on Aug 01, 2022 at 09:16 by Mysticall 11 comments

Team composition in 2v2 or 3v3 Arena is very important, because not all classes work well together. Here, we give you the best compositions you can have for your Holy Priest (i.e., the best classes to pair with it).

2v2 Arena

In 2v2 Arena, you will likely have a long game. Holy Priests do not have much damage to provide for their team. Use Smite Icon Smite to help with damage. If you are playing against a team with a Purge Icon Purge effect, do not put Holy Ward Icon Holy Ward on yourself before the match starts. Instead, use Holy Ward Icon Holy Ward right before an enemy tries to crowd control you. You can also use Greater Fade Icon Greater Fade to avoid crowd control or damage. It is important to note that Holy Priests, just like Discipline Priests, have a few spells that have multiple schools of casting. If you use Mind Control Icon Mind Control and get interrupted, you can still cast all of your Holy spells.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 2v2:


3v3 Arena

Your role in 3v3 is similar to 2v2 Arena. Make sure to use Prayer of Mending Icon Prayer of Mending as soon as it is off cooldown. This will help with stopping your team from taking heavy spread damage. Make sure to maintain Renew Icon Renew on all of your teammates. You have a ranged crowd control in the form of Holy Word: Chastise Icon Holy Word: Chastise. Use this ability if one of your teammates needs to land crowd control on the enemy healer. Taking advantage of Mind Control Icon Mind Control is crucial to being successful in 3v3 as a Holy Priest. If the enemy team is using their burst rotation, use Mind Control Icon Mind Control. If you get interrupted it is okay because you can still cast the rest of your Holy spells.

Here is a list of the best team compositions for 3v3:
