Lay on Hands is a core paladin ability learned at level 16. It is a Holy-based spell that instantly fills your target with life. Considered an "emergency" ability, in that due to its long cooldown it should only be used when it's really needed. Lay on Hands causes Forbearance. As it allows a paladin to "live twice" by using it, the spell is somewhat famous.

    Increases the cooldown of your Lay on Hands by 2 min but causes it to give you 10% of your maximum mana.
  • Sell Price: 1Silver


  • Tankadins can consider this as a long cooldown "oh s**t button". Turn on the auto-self cast option or create a macro. When your health is dangerously low, use it immediately to heal yourself back to full health.
  • This ability is completely independent of the amount of Healing the caster has. It always heals the target for the amount of health the caster has.
  • This ability can crit.
  • Often annoys other players in pvp and dueling, for the reason that it cannot be used in an arena match and is viewed as unfair much like the Death Knight's Army of the Dead ability.

Patch changes

  • Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.3.0 (08-Dec-2009): This ability will place Forbearance on the paladin if used on his or herself. It will not place Forbearance on others.
  • Bc icon/Wrath-Logo-Small Patch 3.0.2 (14-Oct-2008): Does not drain all of the player's mana anymore. Cooldown reduced to 20 minutes.
