Hey Saphirro.

 

Firstly, could you list a priority list instead of your rotation? It would be much easier for me to understand what you're trying to do. The Icy-Veins Retribution Paladin guide has the Ret priority list, so if you're doing the same as it says, you'll find yourself doing your maximum dps.

 

As for your gearing, you're well over hit cap, which is mostly because you have too much from gear alone, but there's nothing you can do about that. However, your Haste/Hit gem in your weapon is not worth the 60 strength vs 160 more haste. You can also fix your other Haste/Hit gem to be Haste/Stamina, since that hit gem has absolutely no value in your gear, where Stamina helps a tiny bit. It won't fix your dps, but maybe it'll save your life.

 

Next, you've picked up Thok's Tail Tip, which means its crit time! You want haste straigh to 40% (before raid buffs) then the rest should be into crit instead of mastery. Your rotation seems right to me but I'm not an expert at my ret rotation, so I might be off there. I believe theres a few rets in the crowd that could help get that right for ya =)

 

Hopefully this is helpful, good luck out there!

priority is -> inquisition -> 3+ HP Templars Verdict -> exorcism -> CS -> judgement
execution stance on cd (if AW or GoAK is not close to be ready)

 

when target is under 20% or when i have AW than its inquisition -> Hammer -> 3+ HP Templars Verdict -> exorcism -> CS -> judgement

 

not useing divine storm coz i dont have 4set (or until i dont need to use it of adds)

That's where my knowledge of ret paladins falters. My heroic raiding ret paladin friend says use exorcism first like you're doing to make sure you don't waste any procs, but all the actual ret guides I can find say otherwise. I'd guess the heroic raiders with experience are likely more correct than the theorycrafted guides, but I need a real ret paladin to be sure on which is more correct.

Exo should be last in your rotation. Judgement w/ str trink procs > CS during burst, because of how spell power works with ret, but as soon as those trinket procs wear off go to using CS.

 

My priority is Judge > cs > exo during my basic rotation, don't let exo procs fool you and leave them for last in the line. That's what I use and it works pretty well for me.

 

As to what Fouty has said, you should change your green gems to haste+stam, it might even bring you much closer to your hit cap instead of being so far over it, and going str+haste over str+mastery right now is your priority, you should be aiming for 40% haste before you go crit or mastery.

 

As for your glyphs, I would highly suggest Glyph of Divine Protection over AW, simply because Divine Protection will be used more than AW during a fight (or well, it should be, EEoG makes it have a really low CD) I think I've covered everything.

 

Though one more thing, I haven't been able to fully discover if Exo is better before CS or not priority wise, but I do know that, at least with me, it gives me no pausing in my rotation since going J>CS>Exo, if Exo>CS works better then go for that

If you just want to know when its active, TellMeWhen has the ability to track all buffs/debuffs on people, so you can get that and fiddle with it, understand how it works and then set up your trinkets. It's a very effective addon for watching all sorts of things. You just have to put your trinket's buff name in the buff list and make sure its tracking it on yourself, put in your options and move the bar to somewhere not obnoxious on your screen =)

Sim DPS is not 100% accurate and I wouldn't rely on it very much, my Sim regularly fluctuates and has even dropped to well under my actual dps by a large margin, so don't hold SIM to anything

      World Quests have had their rewards updated, demons are invading various parts of the Broken Shore and reputations with Legion factions beyond Exalted yield additional rewards.
      World Quests
      Had their rewards bumped up to item level 860+.

      Demon Assaults
      On PTRs, zones are periodically under attack and they switch every 3 hours, but it may be only to speed up testing. Once you zone in, you'll auto-accept the following quests if the zone you enter is under attack, for example Assault on Val'sharah. You have to complete 6 invasions in that area. Assaults are basically the same as World Quests. When a zone is invaded, no World Quests are available.
      An invasion is indicated by a big logo on the world map.

      Invasion quests also have different icons than regular World Quests.

      Demons are all over the place. You will be closing portals, killing various enemies including commanders.

      Flight Master Mount Change
      The flying mount used for transport across the Broken Shore has changed.


      Reputation Paragon
      If you've reached Exalted with Legion factions, every 20,000 additional reputation you'll get will award additional caches. We don't know if the caches have an increased chance to give you a Legendary or notable item upgrades, but let's hope the rewards are better, because you don't collect 20,000 reputation in the blink of an eye and getting an item level 835 that ends as a Chaos Crystal is all but rewarding. It's also worth noting that saving all reputation items for 7.2 isn't a bad idea as they will come in handy. Obtaining 10 caches rewards the Paragon of the Broken Isles achievement.

      The first micro-holiday, Call of the Scarab, brings with it a gold-making opportunity. Selling meat can be profitable.
      Warlord Gorchuk and Master Sergeant Fizzlebolt are Meat vendors and you can find them near the Scarab Gong in Silithus for the duration of the event. They allow the turn-in of 20 pieces of various meat for 20 Alliance Qiraji Commendations // 20 Horde Qiraji Commendations per turn-in for your faction.
      The following meat can be farmed and resold on the Auction House.

      Pet Battle Dungeons are here. So far, only Wailing Caverns are available for testing. It's a scenario with 7 stages and increasing difficulty, where you fight your way up to get an Ultimate Battle-Training Stone and eventually, Damp Pet Supplies.
      Pet Battle Dungeons
      If you have at least one level 25 pet, go to Dalaran and talk to Serr'ah. She will offer a quest called A Call from the Caverns.  Teleport to Orgrimmar and go to Crossroads. There you'll have to find Muyani. She offers another quest Wailing Critters, which rewards Ultimate Battle-Training Stone. Talk to her again and you will enter a scenario (Scenario: Wailing Critters) with 7 stages. Wailing Caverns is the only pet battle dungeon that's currently available and it functions like a scenario. You will be fighting pets and the difficulty increases as you progress through stages. You are able to Revive Battle Pets inside dungeons. When you complete the quest and turn it in, you will be offered another weekly quest, but this time, you won't be able to revive or heal your pets - Pet Battle Challenge: Wailing Caverns. When complete, you'll get Damp Pet Supplies. The bag contains some of the recently added pets. New Pets
      A list of new pets that have been added in 7.2 can be found here. Pet Battle Dungeons Screenshots

      Patch 7.2 adds a new dungeon called Cathedral of Eternal Night. Drops from existing dungeons had an item level bump, Karazhan has been split into two and Vantus Runes are coming for Mythic+ dungeons.
      Dungeon Changes
      Health of enemies inside dungeons has been increased. To compensate, the item level of items that drop inside dungeons has been increased. Normal difficulty - item level 825+ Heroic difficulty - item level 845+ Mythic difficulty - item level 865+ The changes are really good as dungeons will stay relevant throughout the expansion. In previous expansions, dungeons were only used for initial gearing and for the daily dungeon bonus. Karazhan has been split into Lower / Upper Karazhan and can be now accessed via Dungeon Finder. Mythic+ Dungeons
      Are receiving Vantus Runes in 7.2. You can use one per dungeon / week.
      Vantus Rune: Black Rook Hold Vantus Rune: Cathedral of Eternal Night Vantus Rune: Court of Stars Vantus Rune: Darkheart Thicket Vantus Rune: Eye of Azshara Vantus Rune: Halls of Valor Vantus Rune: Maw of Souls Vantus Rune: Neltharion's Lair Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Lower) Vantus Rune: Return to Karazhan (Upper) Vantus Rune: Vault of the Wardens Vantus Rune: Violet Hold Vantus Rune: The Arcway Tomb of Sargeras Vantus Runes
      Vantus Rune: Demonic Inquisition Vantus Rune: Fallen Avatar Vantus Rune: Fel Titan Vantus Rune: Goroth Vantus Rune: Harjatan the Bludger Vantus Rune: Kil'jaeden Vantus Rune: Mistress Sassz'ine Vantus Rune: Sisters of the Moon Vantus Rune: The Desolate Host Vantus Rune: Tomb of Sargeras What do you think about Vantus Runes being added to Mythic+ dungeons?
