Ret Paladin – Cata Beta Build 13277

Another Cataclysm Beta build is being deployed and it seems we get another nerf.  We must be packing one hell of a punch at level 85, because with Crusader Strike dropping from 150% to 115% weapon damage, and now this latest decrease to Seal of Truth, it would seem Blizzard is trying to tone down […]

Cataclysm Beta – Build 13241

The Divine Storm changes Blizzard hinted at are now live on the Beta servers.  Divine Storm no longer costs Holy Power, but mana instead.  It will share a cooldown with Crusader Strike, and will also be affected by Haste as well. It looks as if we will definitely have to choose between Crusader Strike and […]

Divine Storm Change Incoming?

A bit of optimism is here for Divine Storm enthusiasts (which I think most of us are…at least pre Patch 4.0.1).  Divine Storm currently uses Holy power instead of mana, and can really only be used at 3 Holy Power in order to be effective.  In AoE situations, Divine Storm cannot be used nearly as […]

Ret Paladins – Cata Beta Build 13221

Cataclysm Beta build 13221 is live on servers, and has brought about some more changes for our beloved Retribution Paladins.  At first, looking at the notes, I was about to /facepalm, thinking Blizz was backtracking on our recent buffs.  The more I looked at it however, the more I realized they are just doing some […]

Patch 4.0.1 Spell Changes, Beta Change, Tier 11 Pic!

Retribution Paladins got some help in a recent update to Patch 4.0.1.  As most of us know, our DPS and damage output was drastically lowered when 4.0.1 went live, so Blizzard did a little to help us out.  Hammer of Wrath is all the rage, and Crusader Strike got jacked up further. Here are the […]

Retribution Paladins 4.0.1 – FAQ Compilation

In Patch 4.0.1, Retribution Paladins got their combat mechanics, talents, and abilities flipped upside down.  We all know this very well, as the practice dummies continue to laugh at us as we pelt them with sponges.  There have been many, many questions floating around, and I would love to post information as I get it, […]
