PVE TBC Holy Priest Healing Guide (Short)

TBC Priest Guide


Welcome to our PVE Holy Priest healing guide for WoW TBC. This guide will show you what you need to know to play a Holy Priest in dungeons and raids. This guide covers everything from talents to consumables. 


This is a pretty good overall build for a holy priest in Burning Crusade. Improved Divine Spirit is a great single-target healing ability and makes for a great build. You could trade out Martyrdom  for either Silent Resolve or Absolution because these are basically just filler talents.

TBC Holy Priest IDS Build

Another build option besides the Improved Divine Spirit build is a Circle of Healing build. This is more for group healing of higher tier content where you will already have an IDS priest in the raid group.

TBC Holy Priest COH Build


Gems can change based on your build, equipment and caps. You may need to adjust your gems to account for your gear.


You may need to adjust your enchants to your gear. 

If you pick up enchanting you can benefit from Enchant Ring – Healing Power on both rings.


Below is a list of consumables which help in any raid.


Stat Priority

  1. Intellect and Spirit
  2. Stamina – enough to survive encounters
  3. Bonus healing
  4. MP5
  5. Critical strike rating
  6. Haste rating


Improved Divine Spirit Build

Your main healing ability is  Greater Heal rank 2-7 depending on the amount of healing required. Use lower ranks to help your mana pool last longer. This combined with Renew and Power Word: Shield are your most commonly used spells.

Heal can be used for medium health single-target healing.

Flash Heal is very inefficient and should only be used in very dire situations. This will wreck your mana pool if you try to use it as your main healing ability.

Circle of Healing build

Like this build’s name, it’s main ability is the Circle of Healing spell. Your AOE spells, such as,  Prayer of Healing,  Prayer of Mending and Binding Heal are also very important to this build. Renew and Power Word: Shield are your core single target spells which can be useful depending on the encounter or situation.

Shadowfiend should be used once you drop below 60% mana. This is your main mana regeneration ability.

Inner Focus is another key ability that gives you a free spell cast. This works really well with either Greater Heal or Prayer of Healing.
