Leveling and Gear Replacement

With Cataclysm leveling, when is the appropriate time to replace my gear?  I worked really damn hard to get my gear where it is, and I would hate to have it replaced by green quality gear! Guess what?  For those of us that have been around since vanilla WoW, this is the third go-round in […]

Stat Priorities – Leveling to 85

One thing in Cataclysm that will be different between leveling and end game content is stat priority for Retribution Paladins.  At level 80, we were used to hoarding as much hit and expertise as we could for caps, followed by critical strike, and then haste. Well, for leveling 80 to 85, much as it is for […]

Elemental Boss Loot List

The final phase of the elemental envasion has begun, and with it comes four very familiar bosses!   The bosses for the elemental invasion can be attempted after the elementals in the main cities have been defeated. Only a few may be attempted at a time, and they will not be around permanently, so make sure […]

Ret Paladins BiS List 4.0.1?

I have had countless messages, emails, and comments regarding best in slot (BiS) lists for Patch 4.0 and Patch 4.0.1.  I would absolutely love to get something to you guys, but the programs and spreadsheets we are so dependent on now are being groomed and polished for level 85 content.

Deathbringer’s Will and Needle Encrusted Scorpion Re-designed

Retribution Paladins just got two new trinkets to play with.  Deahtbringer’s Will and Needle Encrusted Scorpion were both stacked with armor penetration prior to Patch 4.0.1.  Now, they have had their stats changed, and look like this: [Deathrbinger’s Will] (Heroic) [Deathrbinger’s Will] [Needle Encrusted Scorpion] Needle Encrusted Scorpion is now probably the best trinket you […]

Top 10 Common Ret Paladin Mistakes

In continuing my recent theme of Ret Paladin help, I would like to offer the top ten common mistakes Ret Paladins make.  On my forums, several of us Rets helping with giving out advice notice a consistent trend in the errors we see in regards to gearing up. My hope is to create a list […]

Ret Paladin – Gearing to Raid

Gearing your Ret Paladin to raid at level 80 can seem like a daunting task.  You gear is a mixture of blues and greens, and all those Ret Paladins running around Dalaran in their T10 is a quaint reminder of how much work lies ahead of you.  Trust me, I know the feeling. I give […]
