Khor checking in. Sitting at my desk at work, with a blank sheet of paper in front of me. I have scribbled a title in pencil, “Ret Topics!!!”. Under that, endless white paper. Until Patch 4.0.6 goes live, I feel like I am kind of twiddling my thumbs, whistling and watching the clock as time drudges by.
That’s how I feel in game, too. I’ve been raiding as Holy, and while I continue to work on my Retribution DPS and gear, I feel like it’s currently a stagnant pool I continue to wade through, since Patch 4.0.6 is on the horizon.
Here is what I know I will be changing with Patch 4.0.6:
- FCFS rotations will be altered to give Templar’s Verdict a higher priority.
- I will be swapping several pieces of my current gear for ones that have Mastery. Mastery will at least equal crit/haste, and may surpass it, making it a top stat priority under hit and expertise caps.
- Gemming remains the same mostly, but the chaotic meta will change to require red gems, and there will be a higher priority strength meta hitting the auction house.
- There will be a few new strength enchants to keep an eye out for.
All of these changes are fairly decent boosts to our DPS, but it’s yet to be seen how effective they will be when compared to other classes. I’m eager to get rolling ,and I am eager to start making changes to information on this site. But until we see the patch go live, I will continue to sit and watch the clock.
Twiddle dee, twiddle dum, Retribution makes me numb! Give me raiding, give me DeePS, turn my damage to something l33t!
