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 […]

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, […]

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 […]
