First Look at New Ret DPS Rotation

You guys are looking for our new DPS rotation?  Well, here it is…FCFS.  Prioritized FCFS.  Again?  It appears that way.  I’ve been wrong before, and I could be wrong here…but waiting for abilities to come off cooldown, and choosing the best available attack feels eerily similar to what I was doing prior to Patch 4.0.1. […]

Ret Paladin 4.0.1, Day After

It’s the day after Patch 4.0.1 went live, and forums and sites like this one are on fire with angry Rets.  I spent a good chunk of time last night testing everything out, gauging where we are on the DPS totem pole, and sinking myself into our very scattered DPS rotation. First, I will try […]

Ret Paladin Cataclysm Beta Build 12857

The most recent Cataclysm Beta build is up and running.  Lots of new changes, including the increased level cap to 85.  For those of you that don’t know, that is max level for Cataclysm.

Ret Paladin Cataclysm Beta Build 12803

There are only 4 changes that affect Ret Paladins directly in this most recent Beta build.  What is more interesting to me is the current Talent Calculator set-up for us.  I have my thoughts, and I will share them after we go over the recent Beta changes. It would appear Blizz has already started to […]

Today, I get to work and open my browser. I check the forums on this site here, try to answer a few comments, and then move on over to MMO Champion to see the latest WoW news.  New Build info is up with class specifics!  Sweet!  Or so I thought… For any of you Rets […]

Cataclysm Beta – Build 12694

Oh how the mighty nerf bat swings…Looking at this current build, my Ret Paladin morale dropped about three notches.  I have been hearing not-so-quiet whispers that Rets are doing very good damage on the Beta servers, and it seems it might be too good in its current state.  Check out the following changes: Retribution Swift […]

Paladin Re-Design and Holy Power

The Paladin class is being re-designed for Cataclysm.  We knew this much.  What we did not know was how much was going to change.   Sure, we will retain our attacks and basic talent tree abilities, but I wasn’t prepared for the Holy Power announcement.  I didn’t know we were changing into Death Knights!  Hah! Well, […]
