Ret - Stat Priority Different Between Low & High Item Level?

Okay, I have a question/questions regarding retribution paladins.

First off, this is the information I go off of. I tend to find that experts of this game recommend that gemming haste > strength produces the best dps results at high item levels. I just leveled to 90 yesterday, and I have something around 440 item level.

I've also heard that gemming primarily for strength produces better results at low item levels, but that it eventually changes into haste at some point. Can somebody give me a rough estimate of when it would be appropriate to shift the focus toward haste? And is this theory correct in the first place?

That is correct. Pre-raid 1 Strength > 2 Haste. I would probably not worry about switching to haste gemming priority till about 480ish ilvl.

Okay, that's all I needed to know :D. Thank you!

PS, I haven't used askmrrobot before... Does it generally take these things into account? Would the system calculate that change in priority upon reaching the proper gear quality?

Unfortunately no it won't automatically. Just go use the edit weights button and set strength to 4.00 and it should work fine for you. Posted Image

If you know how to use SimC, you can also use that to get specific weights for your current gear itemization to make AMR's suggestions more optimal. The default weights that AMR uses are generally good, but from an "overall" perspective.

      Hello!
       
      As the topic says, I need some help with my paladin. I feel that I'm underperforming extremely during single target fights, such as Goroth. I feel sort of comfortable with my AoE encounters, but open to suggestion and advice there as well. 
      I feel that I've focused on the wrong stats as well, because I've read somewhere that if you have the cloak, you should have around 28-30% haste.

      https://www.warcraftlogs.com/character/eu/twisting-nether/rambon - Take a look at the Goroth encounter, where I don't even reach the epic bracket for my IL.
      I'm pretty sure I'm using the right and best rotation, my opening may differ tho. Open to input and advice, and of course criticism about my rotation.
      If there is something I've missed in this thread, that someone notices that I'm doing wrong, please include it in your comment.
       
      Thanks!

      Hello there!
      I've recently moved to warrior after healing for just over 8 years, and I'm struggling (I think) with my single target dps on my fury warrior. I've followed the guidelines both here and on furywarrior.com, used checkmywow and was wondering if anyone could point out what I'm doing wrong?

      I really appreciate the help!
      Thanks for taking the time to read this!

      Hey there,
       
      so Ive been turning to icy-veins' guides for advice for some time now, and I hope somebody can help me with my current problem as well. 
      Im a Ret-Pally currently 903 equipped with 45 traits. According to the parses on warcraftlogs and also my personal feeling, Im performing rather poorly on NH HC raids. 
       
      Here's some info:
      Armory: http://eu.battle.net/wow/en/character/azshara/Vorenus/advanced
      WoWLog: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/TZ8gBPH37FYKhzv6/
       
      Things I am already aware of:
      - Zeal isnt optimal for single target (forgot to get tomes to change during raid) 
      - Potion of old war is better than Prolonged power (same issue)
      - Missing enchants on neck and back
       
      Now I see how the above might add up some damage, but it feels like im lacking substantially more. The parse of scorp in particular seemed underwhelming, although this might be because we didnt pull all adds constantly (?). Anyhow, I looked at checkmywow for reference, and I wasted almost no CDs, barely any HP and my HP-Spender with judgement up ratio was between 95 and 100%. 
       
      I dont have access to Convergence or 4 set bonus right now, nor any better legendary than Sephuz. 
       
      I wanna improve but I am kinda stuck right now, unsure of what to work on. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
       
      Regards,
      TemNoc

      This is my current pawn string from sims:
      Agility=21.87, CritRating=18.49, HasteRating=24.16, MasteryRating=22.94, Versatility=17.33
      Is anyone else getting haste over mastery and agi? I recently got the Mantle (FINALLY!), so not sure if that is affecting anything. I know crit used to be important for Mantle, so I am not sure why it would be the culprit here. I even tested swapping out my enchants to haste and it did provide a slight boost while maintaining the same scaling. Mastery is at 9300, Crit at 9300 and Haste at 8000 (Roughly), so I definitely dont feel I have enough mastery to start warranting haste over it and agi.
      Just wondering if anyone else is seeing this too?
      I do have the current sim build, so no issues there.
