Best Gems for Protection Paladin in MoP Remix

The overwhelming majority of your character's strength in MoP Remix comes from the gems you slot into all of the slots in your gear. You will be able to equip a Meta gem, a Cogwheel gem granting you a unique utility ability, along with up to 12 Tinker gems, and all of these grant unique effects.

On this page, we will list the strongest available options, and explain the synergy behind some of them. We'll also highlight gems and tinkers that have little to no value for Protection Paladins.

To learn more about Gems in MoP Remix in general, check out our dedicated page below.

  • Meta Gem: Thundering Orb Icon Thundering Orb (General use) / Chi-ji, the Red Crane Icon Chi-ji, the Red Crane (Open-world content only / Tireless Spirit Icon Tireless Spirit )
  • Cogwheel Gem: Heroic Leap Icon Heroic Leap / Blink Icon Blink
  • Prismatic Gems:

    Early on, you should focus on Quick Topaz and Versatile Diamond. As you unlock more slots and level up more you will have an abundance of every secondary stat and you should look to have a spread of all secondary stats as you will be hitting diminishing return ceilings on all stats.

  • Tinker Gems:
    • Memory of Vengeance Icon Memory of Vengeance
    • Slay Icon Slay
    • Arcanist's Edge Icon Arcanist's Edge (contextual on if you will have a large amount of absorbs available such as AoE scenarios with Bulwark of Order Icon Bulwark of Order or Moment of Glory Icon Moment of Glory)
    • Fervor Icon Fervor (Only triggers above 80% HP which should be sustainable at higher levels of gear)
    • Windweaver Icon Windweaver
    • Brittle Icon Brittle (Dungeons or AoE)
    • Sunstrider's Flourish Icon Sunstrider's Flourish (Dungeons or AoE)
    • Explosive Barrage Icon Explosive Barrage
    • Lightning Rod Icon Lightning Rod
    • Incendiary Terror Icon Incendiary Terror
    • Quick Strike Icon Quick Strike
    • Wildfire Icon Wildfire (Dungeons or AoE)
    • Meteor Storm Icon Meteor Storm

The following gems are not beneficial for Protection Paladins:

Tinker Gems

  • Deliverance Icon Deliverance: Your healing is quite infrequent and the opportunity cost of this tinker compared to others is too high.
  • Savior Icon Savior: You actively should not be healing others in standard gameplay.
  • Searing Light Icon Searing Light: Your healing is quite infrequent and the opportunity cost of this tinker compared to others is too high
  • Vindication Icon Vindication / Bloodthirsty Coral Icon Bloodthirsty Coral: If your group needs healing this either of this tinker could fill that void, but ultimately, in MoP Remix, everyone will be quite self sustaining.
  • Righteous Frenzy Icon Righteous Frenzy: You actively should not be healing others in standard gameplay.
  • Brilliance Icon Brilliance: Only affects Mana/Rage/Energy, and has no effect on Holy Power.
