PVE WotLK Holy Priest Healer Guide (Short)

Wrath Priest Guide


Welcome to our PVE Holy Priest guide for WoW WotLK. This guide will show you what you need to know to play the Priest class as Holy. If you follow this build you should be topping the healing charts in no time!

The beauty of a holy priest is their ability to adapt. You can completely change your rotation when the situation demands it. You have access to HoT’s, Single target DPS and AoE spells. 


This is the common holy priest spec and it works well with just about any gear setup.

Holy PVE Build

As your gear gets better you can take Blessed Resilience otherwise I would use Improved Healing. Lightwell is also worth considering although most people don’t get it.


Major Glyphs

Minor Glyphs


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

If you are running out of mana, you can mix in Sparkling Stormjewel, Luminous Ametrine and Purified Dreadstone to increase your spirit until you get better gear.


You may need to adjust your enchants based on your gear but these are the standard enchants.

Stat Priority

  1. Spell Power
  2. Intellect
  3. Spirit (until you aren’t going oom during fights)
  4. Haste
  5. Critical Strike
  6. Mp5


Normal healing rotation

  1. Circle of Healing
  2. Prayer of Mending
  3. Prayer of Healing

Binding Heal costs a lot of mana, so use it wisely.

Tank healing rotation

  1. Prayer of Mending 
  2. Renew 
  3. Binding Heal

When possible, instead of Binding Heal, you can use Flash Heal until you get two stacks of Serendipity.

When the tank is taking a lot of damage

If you have Serendipity cast Greater Heal, otherwise use Binding Heal. Afterwards revert back to the standard rotation.

Don’t forget about Guardian Spirit if things get really scary.

Healing when you are Out of Mana

OOM Situations should be avoided as much as possible. As you become more experienced they won’t happen as often. If you are OOM use this rotation:

  1. Guardian Spirit
  2. Prayer of Mending 
  3. Renew

If you have the talent, Lightwell works great in these situations.
