The Waiting Game

Khor checking in.  Sitting at my desk at work, with a blank sheet of paper in front of me.  I have scribbled a title in pencil, “Ret Topics!!!”.  Under that, endless white paper.  Until Patch 4.0.6 goes live, I feel like I am kind of twiddling my thumbs, whistling and watching the clock as time […]

Say What? How Much for That Raid BoE?

Say what?  How many of you have been scanning the auction house for epic BoE gear dropped from raids?  I have, and have been utterly shocked at the prices asked for these specific gear pieces.  Now, I’m no rookie in the auction house, but pricing never seems to stop surprising me. This past week, I […]

Holy Paladin Basic Guide

Holy Paladins.  Healing.  Actually using mana.  Currently the hardest role in Cataclysm.  Holy Paladins are seeing tremendous use in raids and 5-mans.  Why?  Because are heals are extremely efficient, and our healing per second (HPS) is topping just about all other healing classes.  So, it should be little surprise that many Retribution Paladins are being […]

Retribution is Weak, not Broken

When I create posts here on Retribution Paladins, I pay very close attention to the comments players leave.  I also spend a good deal of time reading threads on the WoW forums, and just as much time sorting through Elitist Jerks.  While the general concensus is that Retribution DPS is too low, there are a […]

Top 5 Reasons Your DPS is Low

From reading comments on this site, in addition to PMs and emails I get from players, it seems many Retribution Paladins are not quite reaching the DPS numbers they believe they should be obtaining.  I am leaning towards agreeing that many Rets are underperforming, and I am going to use my own experiences to give […]

New 85 Retribution Paladins

Your Retribution Paladin has reached level 85, congratulations!  You have battled your way through the Eastern Kingdoms, Kalimdor, Outlands, Northrend, and finally the Cataclysm ravaged elite zones of Azeroth.   Now, your real battles begin. You may have tasted dungeons and PvP before this, and you may have sampled what it is like to craft and […]

Future Value of Mastery

With the new Hand of Light changes, Mastery is about to jump up in terms of stat priority.  While the new design is still sitting on the PTR, we can expect Mastery rating will jump up for Retribution Paladins in terms of priority. As it stands right now, Mastery now adds 2.5%  of damage done […]

Retribution Paladins Patch 4.0.6

Updated 2/8/2011! Patch 4.0.6 notes are out, and just about everything in the related to Paladins is affecting Retribution Paladins.  I am liking the changes, and we’ll see how they evolve in the develop/mental stages of this patch.  Retribution is doing some decent DPS, but I think Blizzard does want us up a little bit […]
