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

      Update: We have a tweet from the devs clarifying the 50% nerf to Azerite traits in PvP, noting that it supercedes all previous individual nerfs:
      _____________________________________________
      Original post:
      Here come the first hotfixes of the new patch (which, for some reason, isn't patch 8.1.5, or 8.1.1 for that matter...) featuring a flat 50% nerf to ALL Azerite traits in PvP, Mythic+ changes in the form or Fortified and Bolster affixes not affecting Reaping ghosts and the Motherlode getting some enemy forces tweaks, as well as some invisibility potion changes.
      January 22 (source)
      Dungeons and Raids
      Fortified and Bolster will no longer increase the health of the Reaping ghosts. The MOTHERLODE!! Fixed an issue causing Venture Co. Earthshapers to count double towards Enemy Forces criteria on Mythic Keystone difficulties. Slightly reduced the total Enemy Forces count. Items
      Potions that grant the player Invisibility (such as Demitri's Draught of Deception ) now place a 5-minute cooldown on all other potion types (was 10 minutes). The shared cooldown time for invisibility potions remains 10 minutes. Fixed a bug that prevented Tome of Town Portal from being properly affected by Seafarer’s Hearth. Player versus Player
      Every portion of Azerite powers that scale with item level have been reduced by 50% in PvP. Developers’ notes: This addresses how the additional new ring of traits affects power in PvP. The change includes all spec- and class-specific traits, as well as all multi-class traits, regardless of which ring they’re on. This change also overwrites all previous reductions to Azerite Traits in PvP that occurred during Season 1, as they will all now have their reduction set to 50% effectiveness. Non-scaling and non-stacking effects are unaffected by this adjustment. Resolved an issue that caused Sinister Gladiator's Maledict to not strike enemy players who have moved out of line of sight after the initial activation of the trinket. Quests
      Players on "The Lord Admiral's Lament " while on the Saurfang questline should now be able to see Isabella. “Quartermaster's Bounty ”, in which you turn in 10 Quartermaster's Coins to get a Battleborn Sigil, is now a weekly repeatable quest.  
      Previous hotfixes.

      Wildcard Gaming finished up the Battle of Dazar'alor, downing Jaina Proudmoore World First on Heroic and crossed the finish line on 9/9 bosses down! It's a Horde first kill, which usually isn't that relevant, but since this raid has a particular faction-themed bent it's slightly more so. The speed of the kill was expected, as pretty much all Heroic endbosses die on the first day. The real race starts next week and we'll have plenty of content to enjoy, between Method and Exorsus streams, our own daily race recaps and the live progress coverage over at Method's raid race site as well.

      And here's the video of the kill:

      Here's a look at the Alliance Intro Cinematic from the Battle of Dazar'alor. It shows their arrival at the Port of Zandalar, and while the fleet appears to be hopelessly outmatched, in the end, the tides of war shift in their favor.
      Lord Admiral Jaina Proudmoore and Gelbin Mekkatorque make landfall at the Port of Zandalar after defeating the Zandalari fleet with Mekkatorque's magic device that makes all boats explode.
      Earlier today, we previewed the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic. This video was uploaded by MMO-Champion and you can find the source article here.

      Blizzard today clarified in a series of blue posts that clearing the new raid won't be required to unlock Zandalari Trolls and the Allied Race isn't coming with the raid or Mythic Season 2, but later in Patch 8.1.5 as stated at BlizzCon.
      If you've been patiently waiting for the new Allied Races to arrive with Mythic Season 2 and Battle of Dazar'alor, you'll have to wait a little longer. Both Allied Races will arrive in Patch 8.1.5 and Blizzard also specified unlock requirements for both. The good news is that clearing the new raid isn't required to start the quest to recruit them, but you'll still need to complete the entire War Campaign up to the last chapter, reach Exalted with two factions, and complete the story of Kul Tiras & Zandalar.
      Unlock Requirements
      Allied Race Unlock Requirements Kul Tiran Humans Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty + Tides of Vengeance + Zandalar Forever! Zandalari Trolls Exalted with The Zandalari Empire + Tides of Vengeance + A Nation United Are you disappointed that Kul Tiran Humans and Zandalari Trolls will not be available in Tides of Vengeance or do you not mind at all? Let us know in the comments!
      Blizzard (Source)
      I’m curious if I can unlock it today or if I have to wait for the new raid to go to raid finder, anyone know for sure?
      At BlizzCon we talked about these Allied Races coming in Patch 8.1.5. It might feel like a new patch day with the season update and raid opening up today, but this is still the continuation of the Tides of Vengeance story. We will have more information on the Zandalari and Kul Tiran soon!
      The wait sucks, but I’m at a point of apathy about it now. I wish more clear info would come out about to what extent raiding is related to unlocking the two races. Can the quest be done in LFR if a quest is needed?
      There will be no raiding required. Some people may have seen the requirements on the PTR and we do plan to talk about them more to help spread the word.
      As it currently stands, if you do the Zandalar quest arc (through the Blood Gate quest and Zul’s death), the War Campaign through the Tides of Vengeance achievement, and get Exalted with the Zandalari Empire, you will be able to do the questline to get access to the Zandalari Allied Race as soon as 8.1.5 goes live.
      What are the requirements for Kul’tirans? I’m assuming something equivalant to the Zandalari but specifics matter.
      Tides of Vengeance War Campaign achievement is the same. The story arc should be “A Nation United” achievement. Exalted with Proudmoore Admiralty.

      Our friends at MMO-Champion uploaded the Rastakhan Defeat Cinematic to their YouTube channel, and it's full of juicy spoilers. Learn more about what happens to the king in the Battle of Dazar'alor raid!
      The fate of Rastakhan was sealed the moment he made a desperate deal with Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death. Rastakhan was truly desperate and in need of power to defend his kingdom from Zul and G'huun, after his beloved Rezan died.
      Rastakhan promised Bwonsamdi to serve him in life and death and in Battle of Dazar'alor raid, he falls victim to the Alliance forces who marched upon Dazar'alor. In the cinematic, we can see the king dying in Talanji's arms as she learns about Rastakhan's deal with Bwonsamdi.
