Guide to Blessings

Blessing of Kings has a good Guide to Blessings. I’ve run a couple of instances with my paladin now, so it’s nice to have a breakdown of what blessings go with what classes. Looks like my big mistake was forgetting to put Salvation on the rogue and DPS warrior. Ah well, we had successful runs anyway.

Warrior (tank) – Kings, Light, Sanctuary, Might
Warrior (DPS) – Salvation, Might, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Druid (bear) – Kings, Light, Might, Sanctuary
Druid (cat) – Salvation, Might, Kings, Sanctuary, Light
Druid (other) – Salvation, Wisdom, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Warriors and druids usually cause the biggest hassles when organizing buffs. DPS warriors do not have ways to drop threat, so Salvation is very important to them. At the same time, putting Salvation on your tanking Warriors ends extremely badly.

As for healers, I generally prefer to put Salvation on them first. It’s safest, and you don’t want to lose your healers to adds, or if the tank gets incapacitated.

Hunter – Might or Wisdom, Wisdom or Might, Kings, Sanctuary, Light
Hunter (Survival) – Kings, Might or Wisdom, Wisdom or Might, Sanctuary, Light

Because Feign Death is a complete aggro wipe available every 30s, hunters do not need Salvation. Additionally, not having Salvation will give them more control over trapping and improve the effect of Misdirect. Might will usually do more damage on short fights, but Wisdom will do more on long fights.

Hunter pets get the same Greater Blessings cast on the Warrior class. This is a source of great amusement to paladins.

If you have a Survival hunter with Expose Weakness, Kings can provide more DPS for a 25-man raid. The hunter needs at least 800 Agility for this to be the case.

Mage – Salvation, Wisdom, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Paladin (tank) – Kings, Light, Sanctuary, Might
Paladin (DPS) – Salvation, Might, Kings, Wisdom, Sanctuary, Light
Paladin (healer) – Wisdom, Kings, Salvation, Sanctuary, Light

Paladins are all over the map as well. Since paladin heals are innately low-threat, you can get away without Salvation. As well, paladins wear plate, so if a healer must pull aggro, it’s better to let a paladin do so.

Priest – Salvation, Wisdom, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Shaman (healer/caster) – Salvation, Wisdom, Kings, Sanctuary, Light
Shaman (Enhancement) – Salvation, Might, Kings, Wisdom, Sanctuary, Light

Rogue – Salvation, Might, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Warlock – Salvation, Wisdom, Kings, Sanctuary, Light

Warlock pets get the same Greater Blessings cast on the Warlock class. If the warlock uses an Imp, make sure that Phase-Shift is turned off while Blessings are being cast. A phase-shifted Imp will not receive any Blessings.
