Retribution Gear List 3.3 ed. > Shoulders

Welcome back to the Retribution Gear List.  Its back with a new format!  You can find the consolidated 3.3 gear list here.  There are new stats for 3.3 based on a revised Redcape Spreadsheet.  I have also updated the Head and Neck editions with the new format and commentaries.

Commentary:

Theres quite a few hit options on the shoulders if you’re struggling to find hit.  This excludes the tier 10 option (I think this is the first time ret gear has not had hit on the shoulders in Wrath of the Lich King).  There are shoulders that are worth considering for 10 or 25 man raiders looking for hit, but they aren’t spectacular. The tier piece, being cheaper, is a good option.

Pre-raid you might eventually look at tier 10, but before that you will likely want to go for the tier 9 shoulders from emblems.  This provides hit and a contribution towards your four part set bonus.
