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

      SauceISR discovered something strange going on in Quel'thalas on the Shadowlands Beta.
      There is a Void Elf-like shield (skybox?) in one of the areas in Quel'thalas. It currently has no spawns/NPCs, and we do not know what purpose it should fulfill. Maybe it was intended for Void Elves at some point but was later scrapped during development. What do you think? Anyway, it's a cool find! You can check out MrGM's video of the skybox below.

      It seems there have been some issues with a few servers and the connections between Garona and Icecrown and Malygos won't happen tomorrow as planned, but at a later date.
      Realm Connections (source)
      Due to a previously unforseen issue, we have decided to hold off on connecting Garona to Icecrown+Malygos until a later date, to be determined. The other listed realm connections will go ahead as planned tomorrow. The connections still happening tomorrow after extended maintenance:
      Realm Connections (source)
      During a special maintenance period (currently planned for 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. PDT (10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, August 13), the following realm connections will be made:
      The Frostwolf and Vashj realms will join Drak’Tharon, Firetree, Malorne, Rivendare, Spirestone, and Stormscale . The Blackrock realm will join the Azjol-Nerub and Khaz Modan realms. The Bloodscalp, Boulderfist, Maiev, and Stonemaul realms will join the Quel’dorei and Sen’jin realms. Garrosh will join Aegwynn, Bonechewer, Daggerspine, and Hakkar. We are planning more realm connections for low-population realms, and we will post further notifications like this one in the coming weeks.
      Thank you!

      Mirror of Envious Dreams is an interesting costume toy from Revendreth that makes your character permanently (for now) wear the full Tier 3 or Tier 6 sets even though you don't physically possess the items that form the set. The item currently has no cooldown on the Beta.

      The toy comes from a chest in Revendreth's starting area. The illusion has a 10-minute duration,  no cooldown, and remains on during combat and mounting.
      Using the toy makes your character randomly wear either the full Tier 3 or the Tier 6 set.


      We're not sure if the toy will go live in its current form, but it will probably be limited by cooldown as it would be unfair to those who bought the Tier 3 pieces through the Black Market Auction House.
      Thanks to @Blainiefor the tip and images.

      Rextroy is back with a new video, where he one-shots players thanks to a combo which grants you 208% Versatility.
      For the combo, a full set of Surging Vitality is required for a total of 7,208 Versatility and Rank 3 Versatile in every slot. Buying that costs a lot of Echoes, and you are going to spend 5,000 Echoes for each Rank 3 Versatile amplifier.
      27x Surging Vitality grants you 195 Corruption, which is great because Inescapable Consequences won't kill you as it activates at 200+ Corruption.
      You receive a proc of Surging Vitality and then get out of combat to change gear into your Versatility amplifiers.
      That will benefit the Versatility proc you received from your first set of gear, leaving you with more than 200% Versatility while the proc is up.
      You will be using two different abilities to deal damage: Reaping Flames and Remote Guidance Device (on-use effects of the Remote Guidance Device Mechagon trinket).
      Two items will be used to proc Surging Vitality and to receive the Reaping Flames 100% damage buff: Gently Squeezed Toad from Shadowmoon Valley (Horde should find another NPC spawn item or use mobs out in the open world) and Sulfuron Slammer from Blackrock Depths.
      Gently Squeezed Toad spawns an NPC that you can one-shot with Reaping Flames to proc the buff. You will also be able to stay in combat with it and drink Sulfuron Slammer to damage yourself, giving you a chance to proc Surging Vitality.
      After proccing Surging Vitality and boosting your Reaping Flames, change gear to your Versatility amplifiers, and you can kill someone.
      Rextroy also added that you could use Precious Bloodthorn Loop from Shadowmoon Valley to vanish and get out of combat, which allows you to change gear. Still, you need to make sure that Surging Vitality procs from the player attacking you before you use the item.
      Here's the combo in action.
