PVE Retribution Paladin

From Eternal Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Hello everyone, this guide is very simple about retribution paladin not like the other guides that talked about this class and all of them was a wall of text, so I decided to make a very short simple guide not copied from any other sources, hopefully this guide help all the new Retribution Paladins who want to learn this class.

1 - The Stats : I will mention the stats as priorities you should care about.

(1) - Strength : Try to get as much as you can from this stat. The reason : A lot of the Retribution Paladin talents benefit from this stat more than any other stat as (Sheath of Light) talent which convert 30% of your attack power to spell power, and you get 2.3 AP for each point of strength.

(2) - Crit rating : This is your second priority, try to get around 42%-50% from this stat, but it wont be bad if you want to get more crit rating, but in my opinion I think after 50% this stat will be less benefit.

(3) - Agility : The agility grant the Paladin with a lot of melee crits more than any class and will increase your crit rating as well, also can be buffed with greater blessing of kings while crit rating can't get buffed, try using some agility items to increase your dps.

(4) - Haste : Haste will increase the speed of your melee swings, it's really good stat if you have tiny abomination in a jar, this stat will make the mote of angers gain faster.

(5) - Armor penetration : This stat in my opinion is fail for retribution paladin because it only increases 3 of your abilities damage (auto-Divine Storm-Crusader Strike), those abilities are 35%-40% of your damage, because most of your damage is holy based, so don't gem for this stat never- you will gain the Arp from some of the bis items for the ret.

(6) - Attack power: You will find this stat only on some of the bis leather items in the game.


2 - Gems :

Use Bold Cardinal ruby(20 Strength) on all the slots except on the items with 6+ Strength bonuses use Inscriped Amertine(10+Str-10+Crit). in the meta slot use [Relentless Earthsiege Diamond].


3 - Enchants:


Head: [Arcanum of Torment] Shoulders: [Greater Inscription of the Axe] / [Lesser Inscription of the Axe] Chest: Enchant Chest - Powerful Stats / Enchant Chest - Super Stats Cloak: Enchant Cloak - Major Agility / Enchant Cloak - Greater Speed Bracers: Enchant Bracers - Greater Assault / Enchant Bracers - Striking / Hands: Enchant Gloves - Crusher / Enchant Gloves - Precision (if hit is a problem) Legs: [Icescale Leg Armor] Feet: Enchant Boots - Icewalker (unless you are way over hitcap, use this) / Enchant Boots - Greater Assault Weapon: Enchant Weapon - Berserking / Enchant 2H Weapon - Massacre


4 - Professions :

The best Combo for Retribution Paladin is Blacksmithing and Jewelcrafting, Some people say Tailoring is better than Blacksmithing because of(Swordguard Embroidery) which gives 400 Ap for 10 sec but it has cooldown for 50 sec. so i still prefer Blacksmith and Jewelcrafting.

Blacksmith (2 extra sockets slots) - Jewelcrafting (x3 34 Strength gems)



5 - Rotations :

Paladins don't have real rotations because you can't repeat the same pattern due to the cooldowns of our abilities so..use FCFS(first come first serve) rotations consist of : (Judgement of Wisdom-Divine Storm-Hammer of Wrath-Crusader Strike-Consecration-Exorcism-Holy Wrath) if you have 4 pieces tier 10. - FCFS means you will use any ability that are not in cooldown but if many abilities are not in cooldown you will use the resolution above.

If you have 2pc T9 equipped your best clash resolution is: Judgement > HoW > CS > DS > Consecration > Exorcism > Holy Wrath.

If you have 2pc T9 AND 2pc T10 equipped, your best resolution is: Judgement > DS > HoW > CS > Consecration > Exorcism > Holy Wrath

If you have 4pc T10 equipped, your best clash resolution is: Judgement > DS > CS > HoW > Consecration > Exorcism > Holy Wrath

Ruby Sanctum Patch 3.3.5 Plate Priority BiS


Neck: [Ahn'kahar Onyx Neckguard] =>[Penumbra Pendant] Boots: [Blood-Soaked Saronite Stompers] => [Apocalypse's Advance] Wrist (Alliance): [Taiga Bindings] => [Bracers of the Heir] Trinket: [Death's Choice]=> [Sharpened Twilight Scale]

Note: in my opinion Don't stack too many agility items because of the stacking bug of Gbos and Gbok in eternal, also for the same reason i think Death Choice is better trinket than Sharpened Twilight Scale in eternal because of that bug.

7 - Addons :

1) ForteX - ForteXorcist tracks your buffs and debuffs on multiple targets, as well as tracking cooldowns, item procs

2) OmniCC - OmniCC is an addon that adds text to items/spells/abilities that are on cooldown to indicate when they'll be ready for use. It's pretty useful to know when your abilities are ready, especially now that we use FCFS. Very helpful for newer paladins, still helpful for experienced ones.

3) Clcret -

I highly recommend this addon this addon to all the retribution paladins both newer and experienced ones, this addon works as FCFS rotation helper and will show which ability you should use at the time and also you can edit it with your prefered rotations , it comes also with a swing timer.
