PVE Holy Paladin Healer Guide WotLK 3.3.5a

Welcome to the Holy Paladin Healer guide for World of Warcraft Wrath of the Lich King 3.3.5a. In this guide, you will learn about playing a Holy Paladin in a raid. The guide includes Talents, Glyphs, Gems, Enchantments, Add-ons, Gameplay & Skill rotation tips.

Talents

This build has a +5% healing effect from Divinity and other good talents from the Retribution tree.

Holy Paladin Talent Tree Wow 3.3.5a

Glyphs

Major Glyphs

Minor Glyphs

Gems

Gems are situational and depend on the build and equipment. They are used to reach the required stat caps.

The above-mentioned meta gem requires at least 1 of each color to be activated. Nightmare Tear is also viable to activate the meta gem.

Enchants

Rotation

If only one tank is taking damage use Sacred Shield and Beacon of Light on the tank and you can continue using Flash of Light, Holy Light and Holy Shock on the raid.

If two tanks are getting damaged, then use Sacred Shield and Beacon of Light and spam Holy Light + Holy Shock, if you are running low on mana – use Flash of Light.

With lower gear and often being OOM, it might be worth to use Flash of Light as a primary healing spell, but don’t forget to use Holy Light from time to time to get the buff from Light’s Grace.

Stat Priority

Intellect -> Spell Power -> Haste & Critical Strike Rating

Intellect is the main stat for Holy Paladins since it increases the mana pool. The reason behind stacking Intellect is that our main healing spell is Holy Light, and it has a high base mana cost, meaning it requires a decent amount of mana to use it continuously. Spell Power increases the power of your healing spell. Some players prioritize it over Intellect (and use FoL as primary healing spell), but it is not a strategy that will work in higher tier content.

Haste and Critical Strike Rating are also useful stats, but not a priority for this build. Getting 20,6% (676 haste rating) is the soft cap. Raid buffs will increase Haste even further. Even though critical procs of healing spells add an extra 50% of healing, it’s hard to predict them. Because of that, most of the heals will overheal the target. Never the less, a useful stat because of the Light’s Grace and Illumination talents. Keep in mind that stacking Intellect also gives you Critical Strike Rating.

You show Greater Intellect as the bracer enchant… that’s +7 int and requires Lesser Eternal Essence, I think you meant Exceptional Intellect, the +16 int one.

While conviction build is good for heal output, Dsac build will provide more raid utility and is overall the build most people in my experience expect a holy paladin to be running

The build mentioned in the guide is much better for a holy paladin with lower gear,while the build you mentioned is the build for people with better gear

It’s a PVP talent or a high raid damage talent but only if you know how to manage threat

well as hpala even in low gear… you never gem SP because for every intellect you gain 2sp and mp5 is good in lower gear but when you get 5k gs+ you gem straight intellect with nightmare tear gemmed in helmet. Id change weapon enchant with 63sp.

this taletn is kinda iffy. id go for dsac so you can have atleast 1 dsac if you’re healing and 2nd dsac from prot pala.

Intellect on weapon is BiS until Ulduar in my opinion. You need all the mana you can get in naxx. In ulduar you will naturally just have more intellect and will benefit more from flat SP on weapon.
