Holy Paladin Gemming

Welcome to the Holy Paladin Gemming page! Gemming is the process of placing a crafted gem with stats attached to it into available sockets on gear or items to improve your character stats or “attributes”. Gems are crafted from recipes by Jewelcrafters using materials and items. On this page we’ll show you what gems you should use and where to put them to get the most out of your healing. This is a guide only and gems are quite dependent on what stats you already have on your character. If you haven’t done so already, we recommend enchanting your gear first. To see the best Holy Paladin Enchants, head to the Holy Paladin Enchanting page.

To obtain these gems you basically have two options: you can purchase pre-crafted gems from the Auction House or another player who is a Jewelcrafter, or you yourself can become a Jewelcrafter, crafting your own gems as you see fit and also possibly making some gold selling your crafted gems to other players. For more info on professions go to the Holy Paladin Professions page.

You can place gems in sockets by opening your character screen, Shift + Right Clicking on the item with sockets, opening your bags, Left Clicking the gem and placing the gem in the socket and pressing “Apply”. First we’ll list the gems that are acceptable and then we’ll advise you as to what is best. 

Each Gem colour holds a few different stats dependent on the type and come in different quality type(epic, rare, uncommon-perfect and uncommon). Which gem you want to use will depend on what stats you currently have already, the socket colour and the socket bonus. It’s all about finding a balance of stats using Gemming and Enchanting. We suggest you visit the Holy Paladin Enchanting page and enchant your gear first. Then it’s a good idea to Gem your gear.

Considering our stat priorities:

Intellect > Crit > Spirit > Multistrike = Mastery = Versatility > Haste

Here’s what we recommend:
