- For other uses, see Holy (disambiguation).
Holy magic, or energy, also called Light magic, and sometimes referred to as divine power is the manifestation of the Light in the Great Dark Beyond. It can be used for healing, defending or hurting, and is extra efficient against the undead and demons.
Practitioners and races
- The most notable practitioners of Holy magic are called priests and paladins.
- Elune can also grant Holy magic to her followers.
- The naaru are benevolent creatures of living holy energy. When the holy power leaves the naaru, it becomes infused with the Void, turning into a dark naaru. They can also be further twisted into void gods.
- The Sunwell is empowered with both holy and arcane magic.
- The dreadlord Lothraxion is infused with the Holy energy of the Light.

- Tauren Seers and Sunwalkers claim to draw their power from the sun, which they call An'she, the right eye of the Earth Mother according to their mythology. The connection between their power source and the Light is not elaborated on. The Ultimate Visual Guide writes that the tauren revere "An'she (the Light)". This may mean two things:
- An'she, the Sun, is made of Light, and they draw power from it. This would not be the first time in history as the Arakkoa too drew Holy magic from their sun.
- Alternatively, the tauren are drawing power from the Light, which they unknowingly call and believe to be An'she.
- Jaina Proudmoore referred to Khadgar as a practitioner of the divine magic, implying the arcane magic, rather than holy magic.
- The opposite of "holy" is often considered to be "dark" powers such as shadow magic with shadow priests, demonic magic known as fel with warlocks, and necromantic with necromancers.
- This good-evil concept is present both in lore and occasionally game mechanics.
