I am linking this thread from Elitist Jerks. It has the Ret Pally best in slot gear lists, and then some. I highly recommend this, so take a look!
• Patch 3.2 – Retribution Paladin BiS Gear (updated info for plate priority as well as all items on heroic and 25-man normal raids)
• Patch 3.1 (old) – Retribution Paladin BiS Gear
I have never been outstanding with numbers for rating gear and the like. I am decent, but nowhere near the caliber of the people who put forth this kind of information. I bow to the experts here!
