Here is the best enchants for 1H and 2H weapons:

7. Rotation

Holy spec has excellent ways out of all bad situations, but always keep an eye on your mana.

Raid healing rotation

Circle of Healing -> Prayer of Mending -> Prayer of Healing -> Binding Heal

Binding Heal costs a lot of mana, so use it wisely.

Tank healing rotation

Prayer of Mending -> Renew -> Binding Heal

When possible, instead of Binding Heal, you can use Flash Heal until you get two stacks of Serendipity.

When the tank is taking a lot of damage

If you have Serendipity cast Greater Heal, otherwise use Binding Heal. Afterwards revert back to the standard rotation.

Don’t forget about Guardian Spirit if things get scary.

Healing when you are Out of Mana

OOM Situations should be avoided as much as possible. As you become more experienced, they won’t happen as often. If you are OOM, use this rotation:

Guardian Spirit -> Prayer of Mending -> Renew

8. DPS Stat Priority

Here are the main stats that you need.

Spell power  - More - better.

Spirit (until you aren’t going oom during fights)
