Holy Paladin Spells

Welcome to the Holy Paladin Spells page, where we go over all the important spells you’ll need as a healer. We may not cover all spells as some may not be applicable to healing.

We provide you with a visual icon for each spell helping you to associate spells with their icons, the name of the spell, a description for what we believe is best use, the level the spell is gained and the recommended key binding for that spell. Please note that all parts of this page are a guide only and you’re free to use a spell how you wish and key bind your spells any way you want. We don’t guarantee success through this spell use/key binding but hopefully it will help.

Please hover over spell names in the second column to read the in-game tool tip of that particular spell.

Holy Paladin Healing Spells

These are the spells that provide your character the ability to keep yourself and party/raid members alive. Read through them and get well acquainted with the way they work with each other. Some of these spells will have cool down times and some will not.

Holy Paladin Cooldown/Utility Spells

These are spells that you are able to use once every once in a while, depending on the spell. They can help you to get out of a bind or enhance your healing. There are even defensive spells to help keep yourself alive.
