Empowered Divine Storm below HP cap

3 posts in this topic

Hey! So the guide says that the #1 priority for a ret paladin is "cast divine storm if you have empowered DS and the FV buff".

 

Does this imply you're already at 5 Holy Power, and if you're at 2 holy power, you should at least cast your HP builders and then DS once you're at 5 [or before the buff runs out]?

 

I feel weird casting my FV+empowered divine storm when I'm only at 2 holy power, because it feels like I could easily get a few HP builders on cooldown before I do so.

 

 

Am I missing a specific reason to cast DS immediately, or is the guide implying you're already at 5 HP?

 

Thanks in advance!

It's more or less a matter of how many adds are up and what's the timer left on EmpDS. If there's only one target, you'll want to wait until the buff is nearly expired, then use it (with FV buff). Whereas if you get a proc when multiple adds are up you'll want to use it basically immediately when you have FV buff. Also during burst phases you'll only want to burn DS after you've put HoW on CD.

      Hi guys, 
      I'm experiencing a very low dps rate since I'm playing in Legion, something I've never had in previouses addons of WoW. 
      You do an awesome job here for other retris so I guessed maybe you have some suggestions for me. 
      My amory link: Armory - Yelled
      My rotation while doing dungeons and quests is just like mentioned here in Icy Veins.  
       
      I really don't know what I'm doing wrong now.. My dps in mythic or even heroic dungeons is WAY under the tank's dps, I'm always last in dps (except for the healer... mostly). 
       
      I thank you guys in advance for your help!
