Blessing of Kings is a core paladin ability learned at level 30. It buffs strength, agility, and intellect by a small amount.

Notes Edit

  • Blessing of Kings applies its bonus to stats after all other buffs and auras on the target are added, making the cumulative effect potentially greater than any other class buff.
  • Blessing of Kings is not as effective as it was before TBC; gear then mainly boosted primary attributes: strength, agility, intellect, spirit, and stamina. Itemization since TBC emphasizes secondary attributes such as attack power, critical strike rating, and spell damage, which are not directly improved by Blessing of Kings.
  • In PvP, it is usually the best blessing for any class, as having high stamina is vital in surviving enemy players' attacks.
  • Friendly boss characters (like capital faction leaders and the 2 generals in Alterac Valley, Vanndar Stormpike and Drek'thar) are immune to Blessing of Kings, perhaps because the added bonus would be too strong on those NPCs.
