Why Ret DPS Sucks at Level 80!

Why does Retribution DPS suck after Patch 4.0.3a?  Why does Blizzard hate us?  Once again, Blizz nerfs us into the ground!  When are Rets going to get some love?  Why, when we finally have decent DPS and stability, does Blizz rock the boat, and send us spiralling to the bottom of the DPS charts?  I […]

Ret Paladin Talent Page Updated

Just put the basic outline together for the Retribution Paladin Talents page here on RetributionPaladins.com.  It has most of the information I want in there, though there are a few sections that need additional information. Regardless, this particular page is the most visited page every month, and I wanted to get you guys something going […]

Cataclysm Leveling Guide Preview

Retribution leveling is one of the most entertaining aspects of PvE gameplay, at least from this Ret Paladin’s point of view.  I have done a leveling guide for levels 1 through 80 for the WotLK expansion, and now Cataclysm has changed everything. The leveling experience is brand new, the quests are different, NPCs have relocated, […]

Gilneas Reputation Pre-Cataclysm

We now have access to the Gilneas reputation, or for those less familiar with that name, the Worgen reputation.  Everyone starts at 0/3000 Neutral reputation, and must work their way up.  It’s pretty awesome to see all the Alliance Worgen spread throughout Azeroth, and I can’t wait to have them fully imbedded into our world […]

Patch 4.0.3a DPS Concerns

Patch 4.0.3a brought about some nerfs that weren’t mentioned in the patch notes.  Yes, we knew Crusader Strike was being knocked down to 115% weapon damage…and yes, we knew Hammer of Wrath was getting a roughly 25% damage reduction.  But, with Exorcism getting another nifty boost to damage, I figured things would be okay, even […]

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!  I hope all of you have a safe and great holiday.  Eat as much Turkey as you can, watch some football, and maybe even enjoy a little WoW at the end of the day! Yours truly is taking the day off from WoW, so the Rets can run free today!  I have […]

Patch 4.0.3a First Impressions

I spent the better part of 3 hours running around with a guildie gathering all the new flight paths and sightseeing.  During that time, I snapped a bunch of screenshots and tested out some new abilities.  I will post up as soon as I get off work. The new world is gorgeous.  I couldn’t stop staring […]

Maintenance Extended

Round 1 of maintenance extension…+2 hours.  Hopefully this will be the only extension, but those of us that have been around the block know that extensions don’t often come in ones! Round 2 of maintenance extension…+4 more hours. That’s a total of 6 hours for those counting. Ah well, good things ome to those who […]

Patch 4.0.3a Notes

Patch 4.0.3a is live!  Logged on this morning and found Deathwing sitting on top of my log-in screen!  Azeroth has been ripped apart, and when we log in for the first time this afternoon, it will be a strange new world! I’m not sure what I plan on doing first, but me thinks my Tauren […]

Patch 4.0.3a Divine Storm Change

Divine Storm now costs 5% base mana, and does not cost Holy Power.  It shares a cooldown with Crusader Strike, and is also affected by Sanctity of Battle, much like Crusader Strike is.  Thus, Haste rating will not speed one up more than the other.  you must choose between the two in AoE situations. Divine […]
