Retribution Raider’s Crib Sheet for 4.1

As a note the gear sheet has been updated.  I just forgot to post an tell everyone.  I am also working on a Holy Priest version of this. Specs and Glyphs 7/2/32 Use Prime Glyph of Truth, Prime Glyph of Templar’s Verdict and Prime Glyph of Exorcism Use Major Glyph of Ascetic Crusader.  The others are situational but for general use at the moment I would take Major Glyph of Hammer of Wrath and Major Glyph of Rebuke. Minor Glyphs make very little difference.  Choose what you like. Abilities: DPS A retribution rotation is now somewhere between the old first … Continue reading Retribution Raider’s Crib Sheet for 4.1

Retribution at 80 … again

I slack, yes.  The slacking is going to go on for a while.  I have only about 4 weeks left at work and a lot to do.  This is yet another post about ret specs! Commenters save the day! A big thanks to all the commenters on my recent posts.  They’ve pointed out something I seem to have missed entirely in the whole Selfless Healer vs Eye for an Eye debate.  Namely that whilst Eye for an Eye does no direct damage on bosses it does help you stack Censure.  Thats fairly important.  I’ve also had a chance to play … Continue reading Retribution at 80 … again

Retribution in the new world order (one week after 4.0.1)

So 4.0.1 has been out a week.  In that time retribution has gone down and up again.  Last night I had a chance to do my first full raid since the patch and generally speaking I’m feeling a bit happier now.  The rotation is starting to feel a bit more natural and I think its got potential.  When I do get it right, I seem to have more dps than before the patch.  I’m not really comparing myself with others yet as we’re all still learning. After deciding that Shadow Priest wasn’t for me, since the Tier 11 set looks … Continue reading Retribution in the new world order (one week after 4.0.1)

4.0.1 Ret paladin action plan

Its been a busy few weeks.  I got my Glory of the ICC Raider (10) last week and we’re working on getting some more drakes.  Lots of questions remain now that we’re facing patch 4.0.1 but heres what I intend to do.  I’ve tried to keep this as short as possible so if I missed things ask away.  Where I say something remains unchanged refer to the 3.3 Raider’s Crib Sheet.  I will reproduce the gear list for 4.0.1 shortly.  It will be in a new pdf format (making it faster to set up and keep up to date, and … Continue reading 4.0.1 Ret paladin action plan

Retribution paladins in patch 3.3

So its here. Icecrown Citadel, the Fall of the Lich King. I have to say I have been looking forward to this patch more than any other. I am really enjoying the game right now. My new guild, Dreamstate, has a great atmosphere and has renewed my enthusiasm for raiding. Our raids so far (we are only a week old!) have been smooth. A whole bunch of us got Glory of the Hero this week and several more should get it over the next week or so. What does a new guild do in patch 3.3? Lots of things! This … Continue reading Retribution paladins in patch 3.3

Retribution Paladin Raider’s Crib Sheet

Cross posted at Big Hit Box on 24 November 2009 Since my crib sheet format seems to  be quite popular, I thought I’d produce a short form of the retribution paladin info.  Much shorter than my other guides, and the EJ guide.  But packed full of information. Specs and Glyphs Without DSac 5/9/57 With DSac 5/11/55 Use Major Glyph of Judgement and Major Glyph of Consecration. Use Minor Glyph of Sense Undead, Minor Glyph of Lay on Hands, Minor Glyph of Blessing of Might. For your last Major slot use Glyph of Seal of Vengeance if you are NOT expertise … Continue reading Retribution Paladin Raider’s Crib Sheet
