PvE Core Holy Paladin Build (51/0/0)

PurposeStarting Build For Any Holy Paladin
Talent Link(s) Wowhead
Tested patchWrath of the Lich King 3.3.3

Almost all PvE Holy builds have a 51 point set of core holy talents, the only room for flexability in the distribution of talents is whether you decide to finish putting points on [Improved Lay on Hands] or use that spare talent point in one of the other trees.

The remaining 20 points are spent then spent on either a Retribution Subspec (going for increased critical hit) or a Protection Subspec (going for increased raid survivability). Both are very suitable raiding specs; however a Retri Subspec is easier for those who are new or are still leveling up holy paladins compared to the Prot Subspec. This is because the full benefits of a Prot Subspec is only unleashed during raids.

Of a small note, the empty major glyph slot is depentant on whether your main spell is [Holy Light] ( [Glyph of Holy Light]) or [Flash of Light] ( [Glyph of Flash of Light]). Most paladins will however get  [Glyph of Holy Light] regardless. What goes into the empty minor glyph slot however is up to your own personal opinions:  [Glyph of the Wise],  [Glyph of Sense Undead] and  [Glyph of Blessing of Kings] are all possible choices.

Main buffs: Blessing of Might, Seal of Righteousness, Righteous Fury, Retribution Aura. May need changes depending on situation.

With this build you're going to want [Seal of Corruption]/ [Seal of Vengeance] as your single-target DPS seal. Seal of Command is used for AoE. With Retribution Paladin DPS, the order in which you use your abilities is less of a "rotation" as it is "spell x > spell y > spell z."
