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

      Moonkin Festival is one of the newest micro-holidays added in Patch 7.2.5. The celebration takes places in Moonglade and the final reward is 5 Moonkins Hatchlings following you for 5 days.
      Overview
      A wonderful celebration of all things Moonkin is happening today in Moonglade. Stop by and see what you can learn!
      Go to Moonglade and find Makkaw. He has the "Moonkin Monitoring" quest for you and you're sent to observe three activities vital for the life of every Moonkin. You watch them dance, moonfire and sleep. When complete, you get a Moonkin Hatchling (Moonkin Hatchling) that follows you for 1 day. Then you need to loot a Moonkin Stone to be able to understand Moonkins. By talking to your hatchling you learn it's hungry.
      Collect 5 Moonberries and feed the hatchling. Once done, a second hatchling will join you and the buff is extended to 2 days. Don't waste your time searching for the berries in the Moonkin area, you'll find them in the village.

      Now you need to kill Jadefire Shadowmasters in the village and they will drop Brilliant Vial, Constellas Corruption & Moonglow Water to create a Moonkissed Antidote and administer the antidote to their friend Clookle, who can be found beneath the village. Entrance can be found in the north. He's Poisoned and petrified.

      This will spawn a fourth hatchling and they tell you to go kill Xavinox. He has around 60 million Health and can be problematic to solo for non-tank specs.

      He drops Beanie Boomie and the amount of moonkins following you for 5 days is increased to 5.

      The invulnerable bug will hopefully be eradicated after today's hotfixes, there's a lot of quest fixes and multiple artifact challenge appearances will no longer stack up on top of each other in class halls!
      April 25 (source)
      Class Halls
      Players who have unlocked multiple Challenge appearances for their Artifacts will no longer see more than one of them on top of each other in their Class Halls. Items
      Players should be able to transmogrify tabards to the appearance of the Legionfall Tabard. Butcher's Bone Apron should no longer provide a benefit that persists in unintended circumstances. Player versus Player
      Fixed a bug that was causing some players to become invulnerable in instanced PvP. The quest "Something Different" now requires 1 brawl victory (was 3 brawl completions). The quest now rewards a Soldier's Legacy Artifact Power token, 3 Marks of Honor, and a Brawler's Footlocker. Quests
      Corrine the Deceiver should now respawn as expected when killed on the quest “Cult Culling”. Fixed a bug that was causing errors opening Stolen Crates during “Arming the Army”. “Full Fel” now correctly awards quest credit. Resolved issues where some Paladins were not able to obtain the letter starting the Maximillian questline. A certain Escape Rope in a secret treasure cave is now easier to see. It’s dark in there! Previous hotfixes.

      A look at Patch 7.2's most crucial aspects for returning players and alt-friendliness - Artifact Knowledge, gearing and leveling.
      Artifact Knowledge
      Is the rate at which you gain Artifact Power. Your main goal should be to reach Artifact Knowledge Level 26 as soon as possible, because there's a significant increase in the multiplier in 7.2. If you lack Order Resources, keep in mind you can buy Order Resources Cache for Blood of Sargeras. Patch 7.2.5 added a bag with up to 4,000 Order Resources (Abundant Order Resources Cache), but we don't know what plans Blizzard has for it just yet.
      Artifact Knowledge Level 25 = 24,900% Artifact Knowledge Level 26 = 100,000% The % increase at AK Level 26 is huge, don't waste your time with World Quests or other AP content before you get it!
      Reaching Artifact Knowledge Level 1 - 25
      Knowledge is Power is a repeatable quest that can be turned in for 500 Order Resources up to Artifact Knowledge Level 25. If you have a main that has reached AK Level 25, you can buy Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV for 1,000 Order Resources that can be sent to your alts to instantly reach AK Level 20. If you boost your AK Level with the research compendium to a certain level, the last 5 Artifact Knowledge Levels must be reached by repeating the Knowledge is Power (2,500 Order Resources) With AK Level cap being increased up to 50, you'll be able to buy additional compendiums At AK Level 30: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-V At AK Level 35: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VI At AK Level 40: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VII At AK Level 45: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-VIII At AK Level 50: Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IX Example: Let's assume you've got AK Level 25 on your main and can purchase a compendium that will instantly teach your alt AK Level 25 Artifact Research Compendium: Volumes I-IV.  Using it will make your alt have AK 20, but the last 5 levels have to be reached, by repeating Knowledge is Power five times. Artifact Knowledge Level 25+
      At this time, you will no longer be able to continue your research You need to start and finish Assault on Broken Shore to be able to research again After you finish the Assault, the accept the "Seeking Lost Knowledge" quest at Deliverance Point Once finished, return to your Order Hall and turn in Delivering Lost Knowledge You can now continue your Artifact Knowledge Research (Discovered Lost Knowledge) and don't forget to learn AK Level 26 by consuming Empowered Elven Tome in your inventory Gear
      Another interesting aspect for returning players and alts is gear. Patch 7.2 makes gearing up super fast.
      Crafted Gear & Obliterum
      The Obliterum Forge is now available to everyone and Obliterum has never been cheaper Crafted items have ilvl 835 Obliterum can upgrade items up to ilvl 875 Dauntless Items
      Discover an item appropriate for your specialization with ilvl 850+ Can be purchased from Warmage Kath'leen for 400 Nethershards each (e.g. Dauntless Hood) you shouldn't be really spending Nethershards on them, because they drop in Demon Assault Scenarios and from all Broken Shore content (bags, caches, mobs, the Sentinax) Demon Assaults
      Check the Broken Isles map periodically for Demon Assaults. Not only are they a great source of experience, you'll receive Dauntless tokens and epic quality gear from the last boss Dungeons
      Normal dungeons drop ilvl 825+ Heroic dungeons drop ilvl 845+ Timewalking drop ilvl 855+ Mythic dungeons drop ilvl 865+ Grandiose Armor Kits
      World Quest rewards (Farseer's Grandiose Armor Kit) that instantly upgrade items from your Order Hall Set to ilvl 870. Relinquished Items
      Discovers an item appropriate for your loot specialization with an ilvl 880+ Relinquished items (e.g. Relinquished Relic) can be purchased from Thaumaturge Vashreen for 5,000 Nethershards each The items have a chance to contain a Legendary item, so if you're a freshly-leveled 110 and would like to slot target your Legendary items, Relinquished items are your safest bet World Quests
      Broken Isles World Quest rewards now scale up to ilvl 865 World Bosses
      When Nether Disruptor's up, you'll have access to Broken Shore World Bosses that drop ilvl 900+ loot. Don't forget to bring a Seal of Broken Fate for bonus rolls. Leveling
      Mostly revolves around the Armies of Legionfall reputation grind, more information can be found in our guide.
      Focus your effort to unlock flying at least on one of your characters (Broken Isles Pathfinder, Part Two) Flying's account-wide and once unlocked, you can use it on any character (even at Level 100) Flying significantly speeds up leveling
