Retribution Paladin Gear – Chest

Retribution Paladin chest gear is current for Cataclysm.  I have compiled a list of chest slot gear pieces Ret Paladins can acquire, and will continue to build upon this list as we further ourselves into the Cataclysm expansion.

I have listed the chest gear into a Best in Slot format, with the best pieces listed at the top.  I am trying to factor reforging into this, but ultimately, the original primary and secondary stat prioritization usually wins out. 

For instance, two chest gear pieces with equal strength may have 70 crit and 70 mastery, or 70 hit and 70 mastery.  The hit takes priority over crit, unless hit capped, at which point the crit piece would jump ahead.  Reforging adds a minor adjustment in most cases.

This information may not be entirely accurate or complete in the early stages of Cataclysm, and I will continue to make adjustments as data is released.
