[Retribution-SoO] Knowing Which Tier 5 Talent To Use

6 posts in this topic

This thread is mainly to help ret paladins choose which talent they should use for which fight in Siege of Orgrimmar based on the trinkets/tier bonuses available to them.

 

The biggest factors in this would be having the Eye of Galakras, and the Tier 16-4set bonus. The following graph will cover all combinations of the two, but are NOT the definitive answers.

 

 

Boss T16-4set
Eye of Galakras
T16-4set
Eye of Galakras
T16-4set
Eye of Galakras
T16-4set
Eye of Galakras
Immerseus DP DP DP DP
Fallen

Protectors

SW DP SW DP
Norushen SW DP SW DP
Sha of Pride SW SW SW SW
Galakras DP DP DP DP
Iron
Juggernaut
SW SW SW SW
Dark
Shamans
SW SW SW SW
Nazgrim SW SW SW SW
Malkorok SW SW SW SW
Spoils SW DP SW DP
Thok SW SW SW SW
Siegecrafter
Blackfuse
SW SW SW SW
Paragons SW SW SW SW
Garrosh SW SW SW SW

 

Heroic would be the same, now keep in mind, some of these fights are VERY generalized, and depending on how your raid kills them you could use a different talent, but generally I use the same builds on normal and heroic because structure in monster sense isn't that much different.

 

 

Now as we mention, these are not definitive. For example, if the trouble you are having on Galakras is that his final phase is taking too long and you are wiping, it might be best to pick up SW to help burst on his healthbar.

 

These are the generic cases before taking into account your specific raid comp, raid needs, and personal skill set. Choose what makes the most sense for you based on the factors in play.

 

Thanks for Auriel for helping work with me to create the talent choices.

      I'm looking for the best builds per boss in NH.
      I'm kind of just winging it atm.
      Any help would be appreciated
       
      The only legendary i have is KJBW

      Hi everybody, 1st post here.
      Since NH started I've changed my main spec from Holy to Retribution.
      My first problem is that I still not have 2nd useful legendary (got the ring, but have only Movement Boots as other legendary).
      In AOE fight (like Skorpyron or even Auriel where you need to kill frost and arcane adds fast) I'm Always in top 3 and often got 75%+ ILVL performance on warcraftlogs.
      In ST fight I have awful performance (never over 50% ILVL performance).
      My main concerns are:
      1) Talent Build for ST: I'm using ES, Zeal (4 pcs. T19) and Blade of Wrath. Is this the optimal build?
      2) Trinket: I've got CoF 875, Unstable Arcanocrystal 860, CotCS 870, Entwined 875 (no Faulty Countermeasure, VOTW hates me). What trinkets you suggest to use?
      3) Stat priority: using SIMC for my toon, I see a lot of different values and i'm a little confused. Just changing 1 trinket or 1 talent, Haste Mastery and Crit weights changes a lot (Vers tends to stay in 1st place in all sims). What stat priority you suggest for ST fights?
      4) Crusade use: since I use CoF, I use Crusade at every CD possible and not saving it for specific moments in fight. Is this a big mistake?

      This is my last log from Krosus HC: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/reports/YxNAnDWqR2KHGhm7#fight=19&type=damage-done
      P.S.
      My guild is not oriented in fast progress, but I'd like to improve my personal performance :)

      this is only an idea that  has to be proved

      Hi, I am a main deeeeeeps in a semi-hardcore guild that is currently 2/10M, I have 3 core legendaries: ring, belt and cloak, I am currently wearing the ring but I am uncertain of what the cloak can add to my dps. I have a 880 stat stick trinket, heroic 890 EEF, 895 draught of souls, i also have a 895 haste verst chest from Spellblade. with socket. also have the mythic skorpy neck and a 900 crit haste one with 1.8k crit.
      My question is, what is my optimal setup for single target and what is my optimal set up for cleave/M+? I do around 650K dps for single target fights and want to push my limit as I have max traits. and furthermore what trinkets/items i should be hunting for?  
      my armory:http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/frostmourne/Evànescen/simple
      I also have 4 piece set with 875 shoulders and 880 hands, didnt use them due to the massive ilvl difference and I dont think 4 set is that good anyway.
      Any comment is greatly appreciated! Please share some experiences playing around with these stats. with the stat stick and the high crit neck I can hit around 33% crit unbuffed and 20% haste.

      Howdy howdy!
       
      Requisite armory link: http://us.battle.net/wow/en/character/aggramar/Mayo/simple Requisite most recent parse: https://www.warcraftlogs.com/rankings/character/93755/latest Am I following the Icy Veins rotation? Yup, for the most part, unless I have a brain fart. With that out of the way, I want to start by saying that I’m not unsatisfied by my DPS, but I know that I can do more / do better. 
      I’ve got two of the best legendaries (Ashes to Dust & Chain of Thrayn), two of what I think are the best trinkets. I’ve got the Claw of the Crystalline Scorpid (880) and the Entwined Elemental Foci (890) but don’t use them currently because my sims are showing Convergence of Fates (895) & Might of Krosus (895) being ~7-10k higher, but I’m very open to hearing if maybe the sims aren’t as accurate as I’d like to think they are.
      I’m just... stuck on how to get there. I was hoping that I could get some sage advice from other paladins in here.
      All of your thoughts are most appreciated.
      Thanks,
      Mayo
