Protection Paladin Tank Gems, Enchants, and Consumables — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5
On this page, we list the best gems, enchants, flasks, potions, and food you can get for your Protection Paladin in World of Warcraft — Battle for Azeroth (BfA) 8.1.5. We also give budget alternatives.
1. Best Gems for Protection Paladins
2. Best Enchants for Protection Paladins
3. Consumables for Protection Paladins
3.1. Best Flasks and Potions for Protection
Battle Potion of Strength is your combat potion for damage and some Strength. If you should need a bit of extra health on demand, Battle Potion of Stamina can be used instead as it grants you about 35k health for 25 seconds.
You should use Coastal Healing Potion for in-combat healing. Healing potions no longer share a cooldown with Healthstones, so you can use both independently if you have access to a Warlock. Healthstone, however, provides more healing than Coastal Healing Potion, as it restores 25% of your health.
3.2. Best Food for Protection
You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast for the buff to your Strength. If you want to buff your Strength instead of your Stamina, you should switch to Retribution before eating (and then back to Protection afterwards).
3.3. Augment Runes for Protection
If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Runes to increase your primary stat. Since there is a finite amount of these runes available, you should make sure to use them wisely and to stock up on them for when you need them.
