The Waiting Game

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 […]

Retribution Paladins Patch 4.0.6

Updated 2/8/2011! Patch 4.0.6 notes are out, and just about everything in the related to Paladins is affecting Retribution Paladins.  I am liking the changes, and we’ll see how they evolve in the develop/mental stages of this patch.  Retribution is doing some decent DPS, but I think Blizzard does want us up a little bit […]

Retribution Paladin Updates 1/2/2011

Time for another Retribution Paladins update.  Want to bring up several topics that have been discussed around the web, and there are a few changes I made to specific information on this site.  As a reminder, I really try as hard as possible not to include too much theorycrafting here, as I like this site to […]

Ret Mastery Completely Changing

Hand of Light is gone.  And back in.  The new mastery effect for Retribution Paladins is being redesigned to give a passive damage increase to Templar’s Verdict, Crusader Strike, and Divine Storm as Holy damage.  Hand of Light will move to replace Divine Purpose in the Retribution Talent Tree, and Divine Purpose goes away.  This […]

Baradin’s Wardens and Hellscream’s Reach Reputations

Blade of the Fearless.  The number one reason to raise your Baradin’s Wardens and Heallscream’s Reach reputation as a Retribution Paladin.  This weapon is probably the easiest to get of the top 5 weapons for Retribution Paladins in the early phases of Cataclysm, and I will lay out the path to get there as quickly […]

Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to everyone, and I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday!  I have the joy of being at work on Christmas Day, and even though my family is at home, I take comfort in knowing that working with babies in an intensive care unit on Christmas is one of the best […]

Ret Input Needed

I need some input from you guys, and I am hoping a few of these topics may help some other players as well.  It is always great to hear viewpoints from other players, so let’s see what everyone has to say. Since Cataclysm has launched, we have been sorting through all kinds of crazy new […]

Retribution Paladins Update

A few updates for you guys that I made on the site here…sorry for the hiatus, had a family Christmas and have more or less been plugging away on my Paladin, gaining reputation, building gear, leveling professions, failing heroics, etc. Thank you to everyone who has been helping with input via comments and emails.  I […]

Quick Thoughts on Heroics

Okay, this will probably be my last post in terms of what I think about Heroics in Cataclysm…at least for this week!  In my previous post, I talked about a Retribution Paladin’s role in Heroic 5-man Dungeons, and now, I’d like to expand on some of the more intricate details in terms of actually playing […]

Current Retribution Paladin Role in Heroics

After a few more days of testing heroics, a bet a good amount of Retribution Paladins are starting to understand our role in 5-man heroics.  Here is one thing we know for sure: Cataclysm is no Wrath of the Lich King.  Dungeons are harder, and require a certain level of skill…and research. The bosses on […]
