I am Edenwyl, from the french server Dalaran EU, and I would like to share some information about the upcoming 4.2 patch, regarding the Retribution Paladin (it’s a short version of what you can find in the patchnotes).
SoR : Seal of Righteousness
SoT : Seal of Truth
Reading the patchnotes, we see Blizzard will raise the AoE damage a retribution paladin can do! Lot’s of changes to make him more efficient in situations with multiple mobs.
Before the 4.2 patch, only single target melee abilities could activate SoR. However, with the new patch, ANY melee ability, like our lovely Divine Storm, can activate this Seal and as a bonus, procs from SoR can now be critical effects.
“But does it still hit only two additional targets with the talent “Seal of Command” ? Or…”
Yes… That’s why Blizzard decided to change this talent, making SoR hit an unlimited number of melee targets!!
And finally, the Glyph of SoT also works with SoR: When this Seal is activated, we get a +10 expertise bonus.
Yep, Rets at 4.2 will be more efficient with more AoE damage!
“That’s all ? “
Mmmmh, not really, Blizzard also increased Inquisition duration through Inquiry of Faith, from 50/100/150% to 66/133/200%, maybe to deal with the loss of our T11 4p bonus when upgrading our gear in the Firelands.
I also noticed that they changed “Selfless Healer”: Our enemies can no longer dispel or spellsteal it. And it reduces the cooldown of Word of Glory by 5/10secondes. From my Point of View, I still won’t take this talent in my PvE spec.
So in conclusion :
With Glyph of SoT : +10 expertise when SoR or SoT is activated.
With Talent “Seal of Command”: SoR hits an unlimited number of targets in melee range.
Divine Storm can activate SoR and damage from SoR can be critical effects.
Have a nice day!
