T16 - 4pc for single target damage (retribution)

2 posts in this topic



I just got another set item yesterday and I am trying to figure out if I should use my 580 helm and stay without 4pc bonus or use my 561 set helm to get my 4pc set bonus.


I don't have big problems with aoe and frankly, there are not many aoe fights in SoO so I want to concentrate more on single-target.


How good is the 4pc set bonus for single-target fights? I did some tests but the free divine storms didn't feel very well in my rotation and with that 40% haste I have (and 2800 haste for 20 secs every 2 minutes from herbalism) I felt I didn't really have chance to use them.


So, what is the advice here?

I'd only go HWF over full 561 tier or 2pc 561 and 2pc 574 (as in 4pc but two 574 pieces and two 561 pieces) and I'd only do it on pure single target, along with stacking haste. Haste or crit stacking is much better for single target than mastery.

      About us

      <Moist> is a guild that strives to push progression with a very short raid week. We expect our top raiders to know the insides and outs of their class and come to raid prepared. With a 9 hour raid week we expect everyone to play the best to their ability. Outside of raid nights we have plenty of activities happening ranging from alt runs, mount runs to other games outside of WoW such as League of Legends, HoTs, Hearthstone, and random steam games just to name a few.

      What we expect from you:
      A reasonable level of dedication
      The ability to take criticism
      The ability to learn from your mistakes
      Something, something sense of humor

      What to expect from us:
      Friendly environment
      People to laugh, and have fun with
      Progress oriented raid nights
      Optional non-raid-night activities (mog and mount runs, BGs, Arenas)

      We are currently using Personal Loot. So far everyone really seems to be enjoying it. There is a lot less drama with Personal Loot than the normal Master loot most guilds do.

      If you're interested in learning more about us or applying to the guild please apply at - Click on the Recruitment tab on the menu bar. If you have any questions please feel free to message us in game or post below.

      My armory:
      I just got 4pc t18, and thought I'd do a sim.  I just read the guide and went with mastery all the way, but my sim is showing something totally different:
      With Final Verdict:
      Haste 5.88
      Multi 5.69
      Mast 5.68
      Vers 5.30
      Crit 5.22
      With Seraphim:
      Haste 6.77
      Multi 5.62
      Vers 5.13
      Crit 5.11
      Mast 5.05(!)
      Do I need to redo everything to haste now?  Since this was kind of a casual alt that suddenly was tagging along to mythic and heroic HFC, This haste phenomenon is new to me since I never had the gear or reason to really look into it (most guides say mastery, noxxic I think was saying multi of all things).
      I'm guessing all my enchants need to be redone?  Am I reading this correctly?  Should Haste go on weapon too?  Or something else since the weapon is a proc and not a steady thing (for example, your guide says crit for Holy, but spirit to weapon).
      Adding to my confusion is how this affects the aoe situation in HFC.  Is mastery weighted higher in cleaves, or does haste hold its own as #1?  Meaning, will I need very different stats for Fel Lord versus that bird dude with the eye?  Since a lot of HFC seems to have at least occasional cleaving I don't know what the stat priority should be in context of averaging out the bosses.
      Help appreciated.

      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!

      Hello, here's my Ret:
      ^ This is mainly for reference to my talent choices.
      I have a question regarding Empowered Divine Storm procs during Avenging Wrath (with Sanctified Wrath talent choice). Basically, do I use them, or ignore them and continue with my standard rotation:
      Hammer of Wrath; Crusader Strike; Hammer of Wrath; Templar's Verdict (whilst obviously also maintaining Seraphim.)?
