Ret Paladin Leveling Guide

I have had several emails and comments over the past few weeks regarding leveling Retribution Paladins.  Many of these players are using my leveling guides, particularly the heirloom guides, which is great!  It encourages me to see people staying away from guides that literally take you quest by quest.  It leaves very little decision making […]

Ret PvP with Tazak and Schei

A little over a week ago, I posted up to see if we had any Rets out there who would be willing to answer some Retribution PvP questions. Tazak and Schei stepped up to the plate, and I now give you their take on Ret PvP. Every player has a different approach, and it’s good […]

Retribution in Cataclysm

From Ghostcrawler: [Source] The current plan is for Crusader Strike to be baseline, but for Ret to have talents that add to it, and for Divine Storm to be the 51-point talent.I am also surprised at the notion that some of you only AE on trash. 🙂 Keep in mind that the way Retribution works, […]

WoW PvP Battleground Hacks

What the hell is up with the PvP battleground hacks in WoW? At first, when I would hear people complaining about hacks, I would dismiss them, thinking that they were just those types of people that will give any excuse for a rotten PvP performance. Lately though, especially over the last couple weeks, I’ve really […]

WotLK Questing Flaws

In World of Warcraft, players spend a great deal of time leveling their characters.  The first time through is often the longest, and it progressively gets easier and quicker with each additional character leveled.  Now that end game content has become the clear focus for World of Warcraft, the fun of leveling seems to have […]

Retribution Paladin PvP Glyphs

Sadly, glyphs for Retribution Paladins aren’t overwhelmingly powerful in PvP, but there are some that are must-haves.  The key to Ret PvP is upfront, burst DPS, and keeping healers off their toes long enough to destroy the other DPS.  Or, if the healers are particularly weak, burning them down before their DPS takes you out.  […]

Retribution Paladin PvP Enchants

Enchants for Retribution Paladins in PvP will not be much different than that of PvE.  The idea is to focus on attack power and crit, possibly hit if necessary. The only exceptions are on the helm and shoulders, where resilience can be used.  I emphasize can, because it is a topic of discussion whether or […]

Need Your Ret PvP Advice!

Hey everyone!  In my continuing journey on the PvP path, I am finding that coming across concrete Ret PvP information is few and far between.  Much of our gear and builds are dependant on preferrential play style, BG and arena situations, as well as teammates and their spec/builds. I am going to put together an […]

Retribution Paladin PvP Gems

As a Retribution Paladin in the PvP arena, gems are a crucial part of your arsenal.  I have seen Ret Paladins gemming everything from strength, to pure crit, strength and haste, to even intellect and spellpower for PvP.  It’s a melting pot of gem preferences out there.  So what gems are best for Ret Paladins in PvP?

Retribution Paladin PvP – Coming Soon!

I have decided to try my luck at Ret Paladin PvP, and began my journey last week, beginning with AV weekend.  This allowed me to pump up some of my PvP gear, most of which had been acquired through VoA.  I finished my main set with Triumph Emblems, and honor bought several other pieces.  I’m […]
