About Our Author

This guide has been written by Treckie, a long-time leading Protection Paladin who competed for world first kills for 5 years. He currently raids in NollTvÄTre and has been a caster and an analyst of Blizzard's Mythic Dungeon Invitational. You can watch his stream on Twitch and you can follow him on Twitter.

1. Gems for Protection Paladins

You should use Quick Owlseye Icon Quick Owlseye (or the cheaper Quick Golden Beryl Icon Quick Golden Beryl) in all sockets.

2. Enchants for Protection Paladins

Slot Enchantment
Rings
Weapon

3. Consumables for Protection Paladins

Flask of the Undertow Icon Flask of the Undertow should be used in most situations. If you need a bit of extra health, Flask of the Vast Horizon Icon Flask of the Vast Horizon should be used.

Battle Potion of Strength Icon Battle Potion of Strength should be used in most situations. If you need a bit of extra health on demand, Battle Potion of Stamina Icon Battle Potion of Stamina can be used instead.

You should eat Bountiful Captain's Feast Icon 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).

In Battle for Azeroth, you will use Coastal Healing Potion Icon Coastal Healing Potion as your healing potion. Healing potions no longer share a cooldown with Healthstone Icon Healthstones, so you can use both if you have access to a Warlock. Healthstone however provides more healing as it restores 25% of your health.

If you can afford it, you should use Battle-Scarred Augment Rune Icon 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.
