Retribution Paladin Chests Pre-Raid is current for Patch 4.0.6. I have a list of the best Retribution Paladin chest gear, or chest slot items, available pre-raiding. I am still working on a few calculations that may shift some of the top two or three pieces, but I am comfortable enough with my current list until I can hack away on some spreadsheets.
This is a best in slot list (BiS) for chest gear for Ret Paladins, and I am fairly sure this won’t change much, at least until we see a Mastery change that raises the value of stacking Mastery on gear.
Best Retribution Paladin Chests Pre-Raiding
- [Elementium Deathplate] (via Blacksmithing)
- [Breastplate of Raging Fury] (Justice Points)
- [Phantom Armor] (H)
- [Lord Walden's Breastplate] (H)
- [Breastplate of the Risen Land] (H)
- [Breastplate of the Risen Land] (N)
- [Harbringer's Breastplate]
- [Flynn's Favorite Chestplate]
- [Skyshredder Battleplate]
- [Redsteel Breastplate] (via Blacksmithing)
NOTE: With the extra gem slot, Deathplate currently is my top rated chest. If you cannot get to the hit cap without equipping BP of Raging Fury, then that would take priority.
