pve retribution paladin talents & builds (wotlk 3.3.5a)

Considering the fact we are reviewing the latest patch of our expansion, we will have a versatile talent choice, which emphasises the huge utility that the Paladin Class offers along with the high damage capabilities it brings to its party and raid.

 The Paladin class works around a specific type of buff called auras, those auras improve our resistances and help us mitigate damage, we choose Aura Mastery in order to buff our aura’s effects and provide the raid with a very strong defensive. Among the aura buffs, the Paladin class has a specific type of buffs,  which can help the party members mitigate physical damage, be immune to slow effects and take over part of the damage that is received by party members onto the Paladin instead. For this purpose we are adding two points to   Guardian’s Favor.

The specialization is meant to offer utility while also dishing out a high-burst type of damage, often  being found among the top 10 players in the damage charter. Another example of 2 major utility spells that the Retribution paladin Class brings  are Repentance and Judgement of the Wise.

Judgement of the Wise offers refreshment for the whole group, which regenerates man and Repentance is an incapacitating effect for 1 minute on the target, works well to control mobs.Your bread and butter main spam abilities  are  Crusader Strike  and Divine Storm, Divine storm will be affected by a reset proc with tier 10, so use it whenever you have it up, meanwhile crusader strike should be used on cooldown as well.

If your tank holds threat properly imp BoP 2 points is a waste, for more raid mobility, you’d be amazed on how well PoJ works to get out of all the annoying ground clutters, for example Lady Deathwhisper, allowing you to stay a few more swings in and still able to get out with out taking dmg. Just saying I hardly as a ret use BoP on targets and usually it’s just a wipe preventative so reducing its timer doesn’t help all that much, but increasing mobility speed is always better especially when dealing with a lot of raid ground clutter dmg.

i was just looking at this tree an noticed PoJ wasnt taken and imp bop is exactly where i thought you could afford to take two points out of. The pros to staying on a target as melee and getting out of/into stuff 15% movement gives cannot be overstated.

You’re treating ret as support role still. This was NOT the case for ret back in wrath. I mained it back then. We were top 5 of the meters easily. I would not expect this support role out of a ret.
