Ret Mastery Completely Changing

Hand of Light is gone.  And back in.  The new mastery effect for Retribution Paladins is being redesigned to give a passive damage increase to Templar’s Verdict, Crusader Strike, and Divine Storm as Holy damage.  Hand of Light will move to replace Divine Purpose in the Retribution Talent Tree, and Divine Purpose goes away.  This […]

Ret Paladin Updates 12/26/10

A few Retribution Paladin updates I wanted to make you guys aware of.  After further research, and some number crunching, including some information from Elitist Jerks, there are a few changes I have made to some crucial bits of information. Best Enchants for Bracers and Boots This information is from Elitist Jerks, and it appears […]

Baradin’s Wardens and Hellscream’s Reach Reputations

Blade of the Fearless.  The number one reason to raise your Baradin’s Wardens and Heallscream’s Reach reputation as a Retribution Paladin.  This weapon is probably the easiest to get of the top 5 weapons for Retribution Paladins in the early phases of Cataclysm, and I will lay out the path to get there as quickly […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone, and I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!  I have the joy of being at work on Christmas Day, and even though my family is at home, I take comfort in knowing that working with babies in an intensive care unit on Christmas is one of the best […]

Best in Slot Lists 101

I think it is important to cover a few basic principles and understandings of best in slot lists.  More over, I think it is also important to cover best DPS item lists as well.

Ret Input Needed

Quick Thoughts on Heroics

Okay, this will probably be my last post in terms of what I think about Heroics in Cataclysm…at least for this week!  In my previous post, I talked about a Retribution Paladin’s role in Heroic 5-man Dungeons, and now, I’d like to expand on some of the more intricate details in terms of actually playing […]

Archaeology, I Loathe Thee

Khor decided to be smart and level Archaeology almost immediately after turning level 85.  I was still running my heroics and normal 5-mans in hopes of gear, but long queues required me to be doing something in the meantime. I had tons of options: daily quests for reputation, grind and battle for more Obsidium Ore […]

Quick Thought on Dungeon Queues

As more and more players get to level 85, the Dungeon Tool is getting overrun with players trying to gear up.  When I got off work last night, one of my guildies asked me if I wanted to run a 5-man.  Sure, I thought… So we queued up, and I opted for DPS, because I […]
