Holy Paladin Gear Guide 5.4

With the math that I have seen on Holy Paladins for this tier, I have built my BiS list around a progression minded gear set and not a full throughput focused set. This means that I will be valuing Mastery (with higher efficiency) over Haste (with higher overall output at the cost of efficiency). I will also not count items off of Garrosh as BiS, as you don’t have access to those until progression is over.

As far as raid items go, I will be including Heroic pieces only. Since they share stats with their lower level pieces, they will serve the same stat purposes (Plus including them all would clutter everything).

For my gearing I will be valuing secondary stats in this manner: Intellect > Spirit > Mastery > Haste > Critical Strike

My BiS items will be bolded, have a red item level, and marked with (*).
