In this section we will be covering two optimal builds for a Retribution Paladin in PvP during Wrath of the Lich King. These builds are fairly similar but they offer two different playstyles; one defensive and one offensive.

This is the first build which offers more of an defensive playstyle while also maintaining high burst capability, offering powerful defensive talents such as Divine Sacrifice, Improved Righteous Fury, Divine Guardian, Eye for an Eye.

This build works best if combined with a one-handed spell power weapon and a shield for half of the fight’s duration or until the enemy has used their offensive cooldowns and then switching back to a two-handed weapon.

The second build has more of an offensive playstyle. While not as focused on defensive capabilities, it does provide a more burst-type gameplay which allows you to decimate your opponents with the help of a crowd control lock situation. It offers more points into Righteous Vengeance while also offering five points into Seals of the Pure to maximize the damage that your seals will cause.

i personally had righteous vengeance on 1 point since its dps is really low and i mostly wanted it to keep an extra debuff on the enemy to have to cleanse or keep a rogue out of stealth, instead i had it on seal of command. depending on how numbers work on retail when wrath classic comes out command might or might not be the play though xD
