Blackrock Foundry - Retribution Paladin Tips and Tricks

4 posts in this topic

In this topic I ask all players of skill levels to share their advice and experience in T17's Blackrock Foundry Raid. I will also make a post in regards to a BiS list since this is the final raid of T17.

 

Gruul
Tips and Tricks
Gruul is a very straight forward fight. Maintain damage on the boss at all times, move out of the falling rocks, if you get petrifying on you, move out, and bubble the damage off at the last second. Use DP to help with some of the damage from the slash and make sure you always keep censure up.
 
Talents and Glyphs
Pretty much any combination of talents could be useful here just play with what you're comfortable with (I've only done the fight a couple times and haven't found a super optimal talent combination, currently running with SW/FV on Gruul). Also running with Clemency is very helpful to let casters attack without taking damage. Running ES is great for the single target damage to Gruul, but if your healers are struggling with topping the group off for the next slash, run HoL.
 
Glyphs - Run with Glyph of Templar's Verdict, after that it's entirely up to you, I choose to run with Glyph of Hand of Sacrifice should any raid member need it.
Oregorger
Tips and Tricks
This is a very fun fight, albeit a bit annoying at times. Try to keep your camera zoomed out as much as possible, and put Oregorger on focus, to keep track with him on your map easily. Try go position yourself between 2 crates of ore in P2 in order to allow yourself to cleave and keep censure up on 2 targets. 
 
Talents and Glyphs
I'd personally run with FV and SW, due to the large single target damage required in P2 to take out the crates quickly. For T1 talents you can choose between 2, but both have their weaknesses, Speed of Light's being the high CD, and Long Arm being the short speed burst. They both also have good points. Speed of light is good for getting out of a lane quickly, and Long Arm is great for moving to crates quickly, though you get slower as crates start to die off. I choose Long Arm, because it synergizes  well with Explosive Shard, which you should never be hit by.
 
Glyph choices should be relatively straight forward. Glyph of Templar's Verdict to reduce damage in P2, Double Jeopardy to deal more damage to crates in P2, and again 3rd glyph is more personal/what your raid needs. Glyph of Divine Protection to reduce damage from shards or Glyph of Hand of Sac to reduce tank damage.
Beastlord Darmac
Tips and Tricks
Now this is a fun fight for Ret. Really just do your utmost to keep censure on the boss, and build HP with FV buff when adds come out to AoE them down quickly and get some extra DPS in. If your tanks move the boss every now and then make sure you watch out for spears. Move out of melee after Darmac jumps to ranged (He will either be on the wolf, or have the wolf buff, he jumps out of melee then back in to melee and applies a DoT)

Just wondering why Glyph of Divine Protection for Gruul? Only Cave In is physical which is entirely avoidable. If I didn't understand the tooltip for spell_fire_flameblades.jpgInferno Slice wrongly, it's only physical damage for the tank, the split damage is fire.

      Howdy howdy!
       
      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo

      Hello,
      Adelante is currently recruiting DPS & Heals, however, all competent players will be considered.  We are a Horde guild on Arthas and our current progression is 10/10H NH 6/7M EN and 3/3H TOV.  As far as classes go we do not have a Moonkin, Mage, Feral Druid, or any type of Monk. We only raid two nights a week, Tuesday and Wednesday from 7:00 PM until 11:00 PM Eastern.  Thursday is not considered a raid night, but we will often clear Heroic and Normal on this evening for AP and it is not required. We are pushing progression on Il'gynoth, and look forward to finishing off EN then moving on to Nighthold, we will be intermittently working on Mythic TOV.
      From you, we would expect 100% attendance during your trial period; after that, if you cannot make a raid or will be late it is mandatory to keep the raid leader updated.  In order to continue making good progression while raiding only two nights a week, we expect that you know your class inside-out and will research any bosses you are unfamiliar with prior to raids.
      If you are interested, please PM me (violentravi#1826) or recruiting officer Sepsis (tuxedomask#1712) in game.  However, if you have time (which goes a long way) for us to give you a real evaluation there is a short forum to fill out linked on our discord: https://discord.gg/JMVuYRW
       
      Thank you for your consideration
      Xoxo
      Violentnacho & the Guild
