Retribution Paladins

#1 » Post by Drago » 08 May 2012 15:57

Hello, I wanted to ask of level 80 or people who had a level 80 or experienced Retribution spec paladain, to try and explain me something about them, because, I'm making a progress in gear or GS but, the problem is I'm not smart at these things, in pve/pvp, would like to hear both suggestions on pvp/pve ;)
I can and I admitt, that sometimes I roll for a wrong spec/class thing... (Yes it includes icc25, lol but that wasn't intentionally >_<) It's not new here... lol but I don't do it on purpose, I just see better stats then mine and roll because I'm nervous with the counting thing D: I do know retri palys stack strenght, critical strike, Attack power I guess, since strenght gives attack power... And I do know Arm pent is bad for ret's but, problem is most of the gear in the Liadrin's Conquest set are with Arm Pent :p Anyway, waiting for any suggestions about gear/gems (weak in that too)/tactics in pvp, pve isn't such a problem with tactics...

Well, from what i've seen. Top players on alliance for that class/spec are Deliverance/merkava. Might do you some good asking them for advice, however i'm nearly sure you shouldn't gem AP. That's the most i can help you with paladins for ret.....

Hmm, well that's already a good advice lol, good thing I'm not gemming AP, but I do gem Strenght, crit strike and resillence but I'm not very sure of some of my gems... :\ Overall I want to do higher dps then what I do now, since I have like 5.39 GS and I do lame dps in normal dungeons, like 4-5k, and I think I can higher it to at least 5-6k somehow... Btw, you know the time zone of Devilerance/Merakva? Cause my timezone is more rare then the US or Uk etc... Near Romania/Egypt I'd say is +2 GMT

You can look at my spec on armory, its PVE ret.

As for gems, go strength and crit. Just go 20 strength for socket bonus that is under +4 strength or +4 crit etc.

Meta should be Chaotic skyflare (3% crit and increased crit damage) but to be honest you are better off going for the other meta which is like 21 agi and increased crit damage. But Inter what the hell, why agiltity meta? Because, using skyflare you need to waste two blue gems which means stamina which is useless. With the 21agi increased crit damage one, you don't need that.

Strength > Crit > Haste > Arm pen > spell power

those are your stat priorities. Not sure what else you really want to know, rotation is quite simple. judgement, crusader, divine, consecration with exorcism on art of war proc.

And don't listen to the kids that say ret paladin is easy, if it were so easy then everyone would be good at it yet they are not. Oh and don't go to merkava, he's poop.

So you mean I should ignore the socket bonus and mainly put strength there?

If you have mana problems in pvp as ret use seal of command with the glyph...

And I once forgot to change out of my tank gear when I went heals, so had to heal in Prot gear, does that count?
Why join the winning side if you can change the winner?
