World of Warcraft Shadowlands 9.1 patch, Chains of Domination, released a week ago and the game’s newest raid, Sanctum of Domination, is set to release today after maintenance falls. Players are set to go take the fight to Sylvanas. This begs the question: Best Healer in Shadowlands 9.1, what is it?

As a crucial part of any raid composition, healers are forced to deal with all of the damage any boss encounter gives. On top of that, they also have to heal players’ mistakes in order to rectify them and keep the fight going. 

In this day and age, World of Warcraft players are always looking for the best way to optimize their character’s output and throughput. One way to do that is by picking a strong class to begin with; a good foundation. 

Best Healer Shadowlands 9.1: What is it?

Although it’s only been a week of Chains of Domination and the Sanctum of Domination is set to release today, here is who we think the best healer is. 

With one of the best late-game-scaling with secondary stats -- in this case late-game-scaling being how long a raid has gone for -- Holy paladins have very strong healing. The spec will improve as times go on, which is crucial for players of lower skill level. Add the fact that Holy Paladins deal very high numbers in terms of damage, it’s the perfect fit.

Their spells like Divine Shield to immune big mechanics, Aura Mastery to help get through raid-wide damage and their Blessings of Sacrifice and Protection for singling out players to help are all just too good to pass up.
