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 […]

Retribution Paladins Patch 4.0.1

Patch 4.0 is finally here!  The version we are getting is Patch 4.0.1, and Retribution Paladins got their world flipped upside down.  Gone is the ease of face rolling DPS, and in comes the era of Holy Power, with it’s cohort of reliant abilities.  I am stoked, are you? This site is going to require […]

Patch Tomorrow? Extended Maintenance Says YES

Blizzard posted that there will be extended maintenance tomorrow.  Looks like we will be playing 4.0 tomorrow night!  Don’t forget to study up on our new Talents and Glyphs, both of which will change with the coming Patch 4.0. If you love the way your Ret Paladin functions now, kiss it goodbye.  It’s a brand […]

Ghostcrawler: Ret Was Broken

A recent post from Ghostcrawler leads off with, “Ret was broken.”  I’ve been trying to wrap my mind around those three words since I first read them, and I am having a hard time seeing eye to eye with Blizzard on this one.  I do agree with the mechanics not providing an appealing or challenging gameplay […]

Cataclysm Ret Video

Hey everyone, the guys over at RetPaladin.com have put up a pretty nice video on Rets and rotations in Cataclysm.  Cheers to Megaphone and the crew over there for a great vid!  If you liked the video, head on over to their site and leave a comment! Keep in mind that until Cataclysm goes live, […]

Ret Paladin Cataclysm Beta Build 12984

While this patch had a good amount of content in it, not much was done for us Rets.  What was done was a pretty significant change.  I am coming more nad more to the conclusion that we will truly be playing a different class come Cataclysm.  Everything you thought you knew about Rets needs to […]

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 […]
