Tougher Ret FAQ 4.0.1

I have been really vigilant in getting information out as soon as I can, and am trying to keep all the Patch 4.0.1 mechanics up to date.  However, there are still a few questions that linger, and I will try to address them here.  First, I will cover understanding Haste and why less Haste is […]

Ret Paladin Gems 4.0.1 Quick Info

Hey guys, I am updating my gems page, but still there is nothing concrete out there.  Keep that embedded in the back of your head, nothing is 100% confirmed in terms of gemming.  But what I am going to do is list what I consider our best options at the present time.  If you want […]

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 […]

Deathbringer’s Will and Needle Encrusted Scorpion Re-designed

Retribution Paladins just got two new trinkets to play with.  Deahtbringer’s Will and Needle Encrusted Scorpion were both stacked with armor penetration prior to Patch 4.0.1.  Now, they have had their stats changed, and look like this: [Deathrbinger’s Will] (Heroic) [Deathrbinger’s Will] [Needle Encrusted Scorpion] Needle Encrusted Scorpion is now probably the best trinket you […]

Ret Paladin 4.0.1, Day Two

Got a bit more practice in 5-mans today.  Saw my DPS rise to 4-5k with a little more experience.  Gameplay is still scattered and choppy, but I was able to time my Templar’s Verdict better, in addition to finding ways to get to Divine Storm at 3 Holy Power. Blizzard has recently said they think […]

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 […]

Cataclysm PTR

(Updated 9/15/10) Cataclysm PTR and Khor is in!  Of course, anyone can be in the Cataclysm PTR if they want to!  This gives me an excellent chance to try out some of the new Ret Paladin talents and abilities, as well as experience some of the changes come Cataclysm launch. Cataclysm PTR 4.0.1 is the […]

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 […]

Ret Paladin Cataclysm Beta – Build 12759

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 […]
