    Hi Guys,

    So I am creating a 19 holy paladin at the moment. Gathering the BoEs and Working through the professions etc.

    I am aiming for this come Phase 4 when fishing is live: https://classic.wowhead.com/gear-pl...KGbFh9wNQCwt1DE_PDUmwDkpQj0_MNNKQBcpc_JEY704x

    I keep flip flopping on the Leg/Head enchants and the weapon enchant! I think though that what I have there is about as good as it's going to get maintaining a respectable amount of HP.

    I would love to hear people's thoughts.

    Thanks!

    Any idea as to why it says AGM requires level 60?

    I think the set looks great, however I am a bit unsure as to whether or not shadowfang would be BIS

    I know people rocked the 2/2 axe's and spirit axe as @kam Said, Shadowfang with 22 int/30sp/20 spirit if you can get 3 would be ideal unless you are literally just going to spamheal and nothing else.

    Cheers guys.

    So I assume I should go spell power for bigger hits with my seal/judge of righteousness AND it also counts towards healing? I did want to predominantly heal but I understand there is no point in not being able to do a bit of damage on the side.

    I have reworked it a bit, though I am scared of only having 1200 mana, that feels low when a rank 3 holy light is 110 mana but you guys know whats up on here. Just swapped spellpower onto my weapon and +100hp to head, maybe I should go for +150 mana on the legs? I will have chassis of westfall as an offpiece so I can put HP on them I guess for a FC set.

    Do you guys like the spec on him?

    U Need to Think of weps different then 1 with 1 enchant. Key to high lvl play is to have maybe 3-weps/Shields that u rotate. For exemple if u are low and can juke/los swap to spirit wep and Shield. Another exempel if u face Rogue u can swap to SF with Lifetealing or spellpower then shield with shieldspike.
    My base was Eagle axe with 22 int swapping to sf with sp and then spirit axe with spirit enchant. Spirit is very underestimated and imo Will seperate Good and average played. If u learn to manage it then u Will keep on healing when person with equal gear Will oom

    You can mix and match certain enchants and pieces to fit your play style tbf, i'd stick with shadowfang always though, you could swap pieces out for higher armour more intellect just find a set that you like that you feel comfortable playing,

    I would personally get 3/3eagle bracers with healing or stamina until fishings released and get 100hp on legs/goggles.

    I would even test out mail sets for the armour to as thats what i used to use but that was in tbc, theres lots you can modify on a paladin have fun with brimful bags

    I believe you should use Arctic Buckler as your shield.

    Would use arctic as a tank shield switch, no single shield is BiS

    Hi Guys,

    Thanks for the feedback. The spell power weapon enchant wasn't something I had previously considered.

    I do have some extra bits in my bank:

    Shield of Blocking +1% Block and 4Str (plan to shield spike it)
    Mace of healing +7 healing (for int enchant)
    Forester axe of eagle (I can put the spirit on this one)

    I will of course get the arctic buckler from the quest and keep it, I know it has really high armour for mitigation but I like the mana on the forest buckler.

    I will also be sure to collect all the mail Eagle and Healing gear while the going is good on the AH so I have bits to swap in and out. I think I will go for eagle bracers instead of healing ones.

    Thanks again guys
