wotlk pve holy paladin stat priority

In this section we will be covering what your Stat Priority List should look like as a Holy Paladin.

  1. Intellect
  2. Spell Power
  3. Haste Rating
  4. Critical Strike Chance
  5. MP5
  6. Hit Rating

As this guide prioritizes the Holy Light Build, we will want to stack as much intellect as possible in order to build a sizable mana pool that will allow non-stop casting of Holy Light for about 2 to 4 minutes without any type of outside mana regeneration aid.

Spellpower simply amplifies your already large heals, making them even stronger. Spellpower comes naturally from items and talents so you should never have to gem for spell power.

You should always consider having at least a soft cap of 676 haste rating. This being without the aid of engineering gloves/weapon enchant or any external haste buff.

You gain plenty of Critical Strike Chance from your intellect stat and gear so you will never have to worry about this stat. Just remember that it is better to optimize your gear for crit/haste rather than MP5.

Your hit rating also comes from gear/talents so it is something you should not worry about, especially since you require it mostly only in order to successfully land Judgement on the target. A hit chance of 3% should be more than enough.

HI there, does it make sense from start of being 80 to go with the HL build or does it require a certain set of stats to be more valueable than the FoL build?

Yes, i would say so, it depends more if you use a Holy light when the tank is at 78% hp or at 65%/about to take a big hit. For 25man tho its a bit meh unless you are the only tank healer. Most of the time the tank doesn’t need to be at 100% hp (dungeons), its ok to let the tank be at +80%, if you don’t know the dungeon or mechanics or know your rotation its better to take time and experiment. Also a good idea to keep in mind what type of tank it is, warriors are vulnerable to magic attacks.

Would you still pick Crit over mp5 even tho Crit mana reg talent is nerfed to 30%?
