Tips Edit

  • Holy Shock is a unique instant cast spell. It can be used either as a "clutch" heal or a powerful "nuke" spell.
  • It is slightly less mana efficient than [Holy Light] and so should only be used when an instant cast is essential or you may risk burning your mana too fast. [Flash of Light] is the most mana efficient paladin healing spell.
  • As a spell from the Holy School, using it offensively with [Righteous Fury] can generate needed aggro when off-tanking. A quick jolt of holy energy with at least 160% aggro generation will grab attention.
  • This ability was significantly buffed in the 3.0 patch so that it can now be a reliable spell in any healing rotation.

Origin Edit

  • In Warcraft III the paladin hero's Holy Light spell healed friendly living units and damaged enemy undead units. Considering this, some may view Holy Shock as a variation of WC3 Holy Light.
