For the former paladin talent, see Holy Power (paladin talent).

Holy Power is a new paladin resource mechanic in Cataclysm, which works similar to combo points like the rogue's combo point. Holy Power can be gained through certain abilities and further improved by talents to be unleashed with other abilities. It decays over time.

Paladins will generally want to build up Holy Power until it shines through with a bright yellow glowing effect. Once Holy Power has been built up, it can be consumed to augment existing abilities. For example, Word of Glory can be used to cast an instant-cast free heal. This gives paladins several options for how to spend their Holy Power, depending on the scenario.

It becomes available for Paladins at level 9, prior to learning Word of Glory.
