Holy Paladin PvP Guide | 8.2 BfA Race, Talents, Essences, Traits, Gear and Macros

by Mystic // August 22, 2019

This guide was produced with:

  • 5+ Rank 1

Alliance

Best race:

  • Human gives you an additional way to break out of stuns every 3 minutes while also giving you the option of playing with Relentless against comps with lots of crowd control

Alternative race:

  • Dwarf/Dark Iron Dwarf is a decent alternative for removing a shadow priests Silence or a balance druids root + Solar Beam combo

Horde

Best race:

  • Tauren is only slightly the best race for the situational benefit of War Stomp and the added stamina from Endurance

Alternative race:

  • Blood Elf is just as viable and allows you to potentially dispel an important magic buff with Arcane Torrent

ALTERNATIVE TALENTS

Unbreakable Spirit is a great pick against spell cleaves or rogue mage if you expect to be targeted throughout the game

When playing in comps with frequent access to stuns, Repentance or Blinding Light can be taken depending on which your comp prefers

Avenging Crusader when paired with the Vision of Perfection major essence is very strong and can be used when facing comps that don’t have a ton of reliable crowd control

Without Conflict and Strife

With Conflict and Strife vs. Melee Cleaves

With Conflict and Strife vs. Shadow Priests

Conflict and Strife

One of the better essences as it grants you Divine Favor, giving you access to a fourth PvP talent when needed

Minors: Vision of Perfection + Memory of Lucid Dreams or The Ever-Rising Tide

Vision of Perfection

Great alternative that has excellent synergy with Avenging Crusader, increasing your offensive pressure and potentially making it easier to keep your team alive if you get procs at the right time

Minors: Conflict and Strife + Memory of Lucid Dreams or The Ever-Rising Tide

The Crucible of Pain

Great pick when playing RMPala or WMPala for the added burst during kill attempts

Minors: Vision of Perfection + Memory of Lucid Dreams or The Ever-Rising Tide

Memory of Lucid Dreams

Optional pick for long dampening matchups if you need to extend the longevity of your mana

Minors: Vision of Perfection + Memory of Lucid Dreams or The Ever-Rising Tide

Offensive

  1. Pocket-Sized Computation Device with Cyclotronic Blast
  2. Notorious Gladiator’s Maledict

Defensive

  1. Ward of Envelopment
  2. Revitalizing Voodoo Totem
  3. Notorious Gladiator’s Safeguard
  4. Mirror of Entwined Fate

Crit > Versatility = Haste > Mastery

    Hi I've got a couple questions about this guide in general.
    1) Is Avenging light ever worth taking? I had some success using it when playing with a monk up until 2.1k.
    2) If playing with say a Fire mage where cooldowns need to line up, is it even worth having Vision of perfect minor? Would you say crucible major or Vision major?
