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 […]

Ret Paladins Patch 4.0.3a

Cataclysm is about to get underway with Patch 4.0.3a.  Retribution Paladins are going to notice several changes specifically targeted towards their class and spec, and will notice some other changes as well. What’s important, is that most of our spells and abilities remain intact, and mostly untouched.  Nothing drastic has been implemented that would completely […]

Cataclysm Preparations

It is time to prepare your World of Warcraft character for Cataclysm.  As a Retribution Paladin, what you carry in your bags may differ from other classes, and I am going to tell you what I will be taking with me on my journey to level 85.  This is a longer post guys, you are […]

Level 71 to 80 XP Reduction

Zarhym announced there will be a 20% reduction in experience required to level from 71 to 80 when Patch 4.0.3a goes live.  This is excellent news, as all other indicators suggested the experience numbers would remain the same, which is very different than previous expansions. I am thrilled, because I have a Paladin sitting at […]

Justice Points Transfer to Cataclysm

This isn’t breaking news or anything, but for those that do not know, honor points and justice points WILL transfer over to Cataclysm, so start saving those points now!  When we reach level 85, we will be able to use the points we saved from WotLK. The cap for Honor and Justice points is 4000, […]

Retribution Paladin FAQ 2.0

Retribution Paladin news has reached a momentary lull, and that could be a good thing, signaling we may be closer to what we can expect to see when Cataclysm goes live.  Still, there are lingering questions from Patch 4.0.1 and Cataclysm Beta that I continue to see in comments and email. I will try to […]

Ret Paladin – Cata Beta Build 13277

Another Cataclysm Beta build is being deployed and it seems we get another nerf.  We must be packing one hell of a punch at level 85, because with Crusader Strike dropping from 150% to 115% weapon damage, and now this latest decrease to Seal of Truth, it would seem Blizzard is trying to tone down […]
