Retribution Stat Priority

6 posts in this topic

I just went over the updated statistic priority for ret paladins, and I'm a little confused.

 

  1. Strength;
  2. Mastery;
  3. Haste (until 15% with raid buffs);
  4. Multistrike OR Critical Strike (but not both);
  5. Haste;
  6. Versatility.

 

Is there a negative impact to having both Multistrike, and Critical Strike? What is the benefit of choosing one over the other?

 

I've been trying to do some research, but I'm coming up empty. Anyone have any good information to share on this?

No there isn't, but you'd get more of a benefit going for one over going for both, meaning if you had a choice between 2 crit pieces or a crit and mult piece, having double the crit stats will provide a greater bonus than having half that and some mult.

I disagree with this, since having more of every stat multiplies into eachother, example 10% crit 10% multi is kinda a 21% damage increase, vs 20% crit being 20% damage. Not sure why it says only one though.

 

Perhaps it was trying to say each individual stat is 3rd in the priority tied with eachother, not "get an item with both crit AND multistrike on it!" Though I doubt anyone would ever read it that way. Im really confused on that one, we might have to ask Vlad about it, since he puts those together.

After some more research and talking to some other Paladins, I think that it means to just focus on one so you don't miss out on stacking more Mastery. Get Haste 15% buffed, then prioritize one over the other so you can continue to stack Mastery. Crit/Mastery or Multi/Mastery gear over Crit/Multi.

 

I could be wrong, but that's my understanding of it.

That's pretty much how it is raz. It's not so much that going for both is bad, it's not by any means, just that you'll get more out of going for one for a higher chance in it than lower % in both.

 

 

Also I was the one that had vlad put it there :P

      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!

      So,
      Which trinket should I be using (obviously arms warriors are not concerned with iLvl because Mastery is desired over strength.
      I have the 820 iLvl trinket from a timewarped dungeon and that with heroism, Battle Cry, Potion, trinket use, could provide an extreme amount of dps burst which is also on a 1.5m CD. It seems like an obvious choice but I wanted to hear any thoughts or opinions that people have since I'll be losing 500+ static mastery. Also, the use effect gives around 20-24% increased damage during colossus smash. 
      Thoughts?...

      Hey all, 
      Been simming my char and im being directed massively towards vers and crit now, after hitting around 21% haste. SC is showing my haste to be worth close to zero now ive hit that point. 
      Im simming around 330k and outdoing this a good bit, which is ok. 
      Ive recently got BiS legendary in the cloak, and not sure if i trust the SC weights anymore. 
      Im leaning to going pure haste > crit > verse > mastery, regardless of the weights in SC. 
      Anyone any advice or tips around this?
